(2) Robert2 (Robertl). It is unlikely because of his age that this was the second husband of Sarah Gay, daughter of Henry Gay. The will of Robert, Sarah's husband, dated August 1, 1815, is abstracted in the article "John Gay of Sadsbury." Nor is it at all probable that he was the Robert Gay of Rockbridge, who d. 1791, leaving two grandsons and a granddaughter. See below. Robert2 (Robertl) appears to have been alive in 1799, when, as appears above, a deed to him and his brother of Lot 7 was delivered to him. Lot 7 in 1782 was in Rockbridge County and I think that this Robert was on the 1782 list of Rockbridge taxables (Morton, Rockbridge, page 370). He may have been the Robert Gay who founded the family in Pocahontas County, West Virginia, but I think not. If so, this article is incorrect in ascribing that family to Robert2 (Jamesl). This Robert may have been the Robert Guy who was surety on the marriage bond of Thomas Guy and Mary Swearingen (Chalkley, II, 295).
