About This File

The significance to our Gay family of this twelve page list of 1815 Subscribers to the First American Edition of Nicholson's Encyclopedia for Henrico County and other Virginia Counties, is that this is one of the few occasions when Charles Gay is actually identified as Charles C. Gay rather than just Charles Gay as in the Census data.

However, what is unknown is which Charles Gay bought the set of Encyclopedia's. Charles Gay Sr would have still been the head of the family, but Charles Gay Jr would have been 39 years old with a wife and seven children of the age to utilize the Encyclopedias.

Consequently, most likely this Charles C Gay is the actual name of Charles Gay Sr.
