Dr. Fay (Faye) F. Gaither was born December 17, 1881 in Indiana. He came to Norton County in 1906 and settled at Clayton, where he was in business for about four years. About 1910 he moved to Lenora and purchased the drug store and practiced medicine, as he had done in Clayton.

He was a graduate of the Creighton University, Omaha.
Dr. Gaither died November 11, 1935, at the A.O.U.W. pavilion at the state sanatorium, where he had been brought about three weeks ago from Nemaha, Nebraska in serious condition from heart disease. His health condition made it imperative that he retire at least temporarily from his profession about 18 months ago, and a year ago he moved to Nemaha.

Jay, I'm sure happy to hear that you got some results for your efforts on the Butler family! I have made the corrections you sent for the family, it is so nice to be able to add to their memories! I gave credit to you just as Jay Freeman, would you prefer your city and state added or # also? I have seen McCoy in cemeteries, now I wonder again if he might have used his middle name! That sure happened a LOT! I'll keep my eyes out for him. Luella
