Fredric; Some of the Maryland Gaithers did use the Coat of Arms that the Society of John Gaither Descendants uses. There were 2 different mottos, but the crest is the same. Greenberry Gaither (1751-1823) brought the Coat of Arms to KY from MD in 1802. And Samuel Gaither who was born in the 1700 and went to PA from MD used the same one, but with a different motto. I have seen many of the original papers that belonged to Greenberry Gaither and know this is true. I can cite you to the book if you need the Samuel Gaither reference. I do know that the College of Arms has no Coat of Arms rigistered to Gater/Gaither/Gather, but one is carved in stone in an old church in England dating back to the middle ages. EVA
