Legends about Paddy Kay:
One story of Paddy Kay was that he was found in the woods as a baby by some woodcutters and they tossed dice to see who would keep him and thus the name Gamble came about. Another story is that he came down from Tennessee with some gamblers to Blount Springs, Alabama. It was a gambling town back then. When the game was over, the men wondered what to do with Paddy Kay, so they put him on a stump and told him to choose his new master. He looked around and chose Josiah McCollum because he was big and fat and looked like he had plenty to eat.
*Josiah McCollum was an actual close friend of the Gamble family, as is seen on the 1850 census. Josiah and his wife Elizabeth lived about ten houses down from the Gambles that year, and Paddy Kay and Fannie had Josiah's father, John McCollum, living with them during that time.
