Tracing the descendants of this family was made easier by the fact that many of their vital records appear in the Massachusetts database. With the aid of that, and brief mentions in other trees, I was able to follow them beyond what Orlin tells us of them. Charles and his group remain in Massachusetts, although Rena travels with her husband to Michigan and later to New York. Clarence, on the other hand, was living in New York in 1906 for Dorothy's birth, in New Jersey by 1910 and in New York again by 1930.
   
Toward what I thought was the end of my research, I thought I would make one more effort to find Clarence's son Kent. I had looked at the social security before, and found nothing. Then I saw two things: a record of a Kent Fay who died in the Second World War; and an obituary for Joanne Fay Lyons, that specifically mentioned Lt. Colonel Kent Fay. The question was, then, was this the same Kent who was the son of Clarence. Chances were good, because there seemed to be no other at all of this name. However, I kept looking for the final piece of evidence, and I finally found it in a short notice in the New York Times for 1938; I have included it on Kent's page.
   
There is one unsolved mystery, and that is Rosa F. Fay, born 1872. She was obviously given the name of her dead sister. In fact, because the names were identical, I wondered whether there was really only one daughter; but then I did find firm evidence of the death of the first Rosa. I also found evidence for the marriage of a Rosa F. Fay in Lynn in 1896; but I have not been able to see the record itself, and so I do not know the name of her husband, nor whether this is indeed the second Rosa of this line.
