      BLACKMORE, GAY, HUGHES, STEBBINS, Sterling posted by Del Hardy on Friday, April 17, 1998

      George and Alphia BLACKMORE GAY lived in Braintrim Luzerne and Wyoming Counties PA between 1812 and 1840. I have a copy of a hand written note made by a great-granddaughter of this couple Marjorie Lucy GAY HUGHES. She lists the children of this union as Ansel 1809 Clarisa (Sterling) 1811 Barther C. 1813 Ahira 1816 Daniel 1818 Moses 1820 Mary (STEBBINS)1821 Candance 1824 Amelia and Arelia 1827. I understand that the will of George GAY page 73 Wilkes Barre PA signed 3 Jul 1841 includes a son named Samuel and that there is no mention of a son named Daniel. I do not have a copy of this will. I would appreciate any information that would help me resolve this conflicting information. Several of the children of this family married and settled in the Luzerne Susquehanna Wyoming counties area.

      Clarissa had a brother named Ahira.
