Asa Gay's Father, Asa Gay Sr., was born 1773 died around 1851 in Blue Rock, Muskingum co., Ohio.
Wife born in Ireland and died before 1850.
The Name Asa Gay goes way back to Massachusetts to Needham. I am able to trace family back to there to possible relative Asa Gay marrying Isabella Brownley, but still sorting out the direct line.
I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA (family still there), but living in Alabama so not able to search records in Ohio manually. The Ohio Gay branch married into the Perones, then Schunks, then Fox.
I have pictures from old tin-type of Nancy Gay and husband soon after marriage and later in life. The Gay's in our family loved to take photos! We had them copied and they turned out great.
Hope this helps. Any info you may have on Asa Gay would certainly help us!
