It is actually a little comforting to know that my own frustration about birth dates and life event dates is shared by so many of my newly discovered cousins as regards the Calfpasture Campbells and Gays.

I am descended from Robert Gay/Margaret Lockridge via their "daughter" Sarah Gay (if she really is their daughter) who married my GGGGGGGG-Grandfather William Campbell. Her birth date appears correct when compared to her children's birth dates but does not line up with her supposed parents.

In my limited search time I've concluded that the Campbell/Gays at Calfpasture are so interrelated that my Sarah must have different parents than shown from postings all over the web. It is so easy to just pick a thread and add it into one's ancestry that weeding out these false starts becomes almost impossible without better original records.

For my part, the Campbell/Gays join into my paternal line through the marriage of James Monroe Lytle to Elizabeth M. Gillham who was the GGGG-granddaughter of William Campbell/Sarah Gay.

I, like some of you, would certainly welcome determining Sarah Gays real parents.

Dave Lytle - GGGGGGGG-grandson of William and Sarah Campbell
