I have a Thomas Gay living in 1850 in Benton Co., ALA. He was born in GA around 1794. I am trying to find this ancestors. It has been suggested that he was either the son of Allen or John Gay, who were both the sons of Thomas Gay and wife Patience McDaniel. Could anyone help me with this? Thanks Rhodene

My Thomas Gay was located in Stewart Co., GA in 1840, in Benton Co., ALA in 1850, Calhoun Co., GA in 1860 and Pontatoc Co., MS in 1870. He is in no other census, but that would have made him 76 in 1870 so he probably died. I am trying to prove that this man was the son of John Gay instead of Allen Gay. If this is so that would have made him married to a Mary Stokes, as his wife's name was Mary and it is know that John's son Thomas was married to a Stokes. Thomas named sons William J., Charles B. and Nicholas. Are these Stokes names ? Any information on John, Allen or Thomas Gay would be greatly appreciated.

I am on a hunt for my great-grandaddy. The only information i have on him is that his name was Thomas Gay, born in Heard Co., Ga. , he came to Huntsville, Al. where he owned hundreds of acres of land/cattle. His hired men poisoned the milk and killed him and 3 of his children. He died in 1875 near Bridgeport, Al. I have no name of his wife or children. If you have any information regarding this Thomas Gay, please e-mail me at kmoore35903@yahoo.com.
