Mary Gay, d. 1795, Edgecombe County, NC
I believe I have made an error in saying that the Mary Gay who died in 1795 in Edgecombe was Mary Bryant. At the time I made this error, I believed that Mary Gay was Richard Gay's widow and this Richard Gay was the one in Isle of Wight who was married to Mary Bryant. This Mary Bryant was born in 1705. She cannot possibly be the Mary Gay in Edgecombe in 1795 because her daughter Elizabeth Langley was born between 1755 and 1774 and Mary Bryant would have been way too old to be Elizabeth's mother. Elizabeth was married to Hezekiah Langley. In the 1800 census, the oldest female in Hezekiah Langley's hh was 26 to 45 years old, giving a birth date of 1755 to 1774. I do not know who Mary Gay was and I apologize for making the error.
