I am the Great Great niece of Mac Day, his brother Alexander was my Great Grandfather aka Ben Gay. Rumor has it Mac Day told his brother to go out West and change his name after shooting and killing a man. Would love to know the true story. I have spent years working on the family tree which leads to being a descendant of the Indian Chief Black Hawk.
