"Wm. P. Gay died Saturday morning at the home ranch of A. A. Spaugh. He was 65 years old and had spent most of his life in the west. He is survived by two sisters whom he had not seen for 30 years and he did not wish to have them notified of his death until after he was buried. He had asked George Kiethley to look after details when he died and Mr. Kiethley did this very well."

William P. Gay (23 Jun 1837-1902). The above info is from a newspaper article I had found. Forgot to get the publication info, but was in 1902 Wyoming. From the Cassville Republican, Dec. 17, 1903, Mrs. Jane McCLure had been notified that her brother W. P. Gay had died in California. Mrs. McClure said that William left Missouri in 1852 and had visited in the 80's, but she had not heard from him in several years. William was listed in 1880 census as being born in 1841 Missouri. Residence as North Platte River, Carbon, WY. List as Single with fathers birthplace as VA and mothers as AL. The Lusk Herald October 23, 1902. I cannot find any evidence that William had married.

William was the son of Daniel N. Gay and Zarilda Jane Miller. Daniel was a son of Charles Gay and Mary Baker.
