Patricia, I'm of the opinion that two different families are mixed here--Geddy and Gaddy (-y, -ey, -or -ie). At Williamsburg, VA, the Geddy house (restored) stems from a Border Scot family of gun and metalsmiths (silver, gold, who arrived in VA after the Gaddey/y arrival c. 1719. Un-fortunately, both Geddy and Gadd(e)y seem to have been neighbors at times, and helpful copyists have "corrected" the records to reflect what they presumably believed to be correct. In the vestry book of Blis(s)land Parish, New Kent County, VA, you will find a Geddy and a Gaddy on the same page, suggesting that the clerk intended to distinguish between two families. Even later, in NC, we find what appear to be Geddy and Gaddy "neighbors." (My way of distinguishing them is that Gaddy and gold don't seem to go together.) In your reconstruction of the line, it is at #3/4 that I believe an incorrect "graft" is made. I'm aware of a Gaddy (I believe) having convinced himself and the clan chief that he was a Geddie, but I remain to be convinced. As a matter of fact, it would simplify our problem and answer some of our perplexing questions if we simply accepted the Geddie=Gaddy tie, but I, for one, remain stubborn. Is that a Scots trait, or English?
