Descendants of Henry Calvin Gay and Mary Campbell Scott

I am looking for information about the descendants of Henry Calvin Gay (born 1839 Vermont and married in San Francicso 1871) and Mary Campbell Scott (born 1848 Australia and died San Francisco 1899). This is the information collected so far:
1)George Robert Gay (9/28/1872 San Francisco) married Eva Worth, daughter of Charles A. Worth (abt 1835 Nantucket, MA) and Winifred Coffin (abt 1835). George and Eva had one daughter Marjorie Gay (9/25/1901)who married Edwin H. Walter (1/17/1895). Both died in San Mateo.
2)Frank Henry Gay (1874 San Francisco)who married a Margaret. Died 1952 in Napa.
3) Edward P. Gay (1/8/1876 San Francsico) who married a Josephine McMillan (born abt 1879). One son Ronald McMillan Gay (11/16/1904) who married briefly (1937) the sterilized heiress, Anne Cooper Hewitt. Ronald died 1988.
4)Lewis D. Gay (1/5/1877)and died in San Francisco in 1943. I have no marriage information.
5)Jean Gay (abt 1880) who married first in Hawaii a Mr. Dumoulin and had one son Hamilton Gay (9/3/1903). She married second Frank Gamble who adopted ? Hamilton and they had a second child, Barbara Jean Gamble (6/05/1912). Jean Gay was married a third time to Arthur Burke. Hamilton Gay Gamble married a Marie Scibird and had Richard Cuthbert Gamble in 1926. Hamilton Gamble died in Monterey in 1993. Barbara Jean Gamble married a Dillingham and died in Marin in 1966.
6)William T. Gay (7/19/1883 San Francisco) died in Fairfax, Marin Co., in 1962. I have no marriage information.
7)Calvin T. Gay (11/20/1887 San Francisco)married a Myrtle Adams on January 10, 1910. Calvin and Myrtle had two daughters:
Grace Audrey Gay (5/9/1914 San Francisco) who married Earl Bennett Davidson. Grace Davidson died in Huntington Beach, Orange Co. in 2003.
Delma Frances Gay (2/20/1911 San Francisco) who married Vernon Kenneth Davidson on October 1, 1928. Delma Frances Davidson died in 1990.
I believe that Earl and Vernon were brothers and children of Robert Wallace Davidson and Jesse Julia Justina Herbert.
8)Grace A. Gay (born abt 1892) who married Dr. Frank Lowe of a San Miquel family.
If there are any descendants out there, I am looking for further information and corrections on any of these families. I have collected quite a bit of information on our ancestors and would be happy to compare notes.
Hope to hear from you.
