I’m not sure this is the right one. I don’t have a middle initial yet. . I have a record that says that this James came here when he was 2 months old. I have some info’ that this James’ father came from England. Our James Gay married Sarah Chappell from Nova Scotia. I have some unproven info’ that Sarah was the daughter of Walter and Sarah (Neal) Chappell . The Chappells lived in NS for several generations having immigrated there from Connecticut prior to the American Revolution. There are some land records that show a James Gay settling in Richmond/St Eleanors area. This is where most of the children were born. They moved to Knutsford/OLeary at some point.

There is a family story that there were 5 brothers that came from england – 3 went to the states and 2 to Canada.
