Although the Gaithers claim descent from Earl Ralph-De-Gather II of Wessex, the 1st documented ancestor noted is John Gater (1599-1666). John Gater arrived in Jamestown, Virginia in 1620; he had left his bride in England. Upon his return to England possibly in 1624, he found that his wife had left him a son but had since died. It is believed that he married Joan before his return to America in 1635. The family settled in what was then lower New Norfolk County. The line traces through his son John Geather (1620-1652) who came with him in 1635. John married Mary and they migrated to Maryland shortly before the birth of their son John in 1651. Charles Gaither (1883-1962) was the son of James Gaither and Abigail (Abbie) Saunders McGee (b. 1852) and grandfather to the author. Charles and many of his descendants were members of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The Gaither surname was also recorded Gater, Geather, and De Gater. Ancestors, descendants and relatives lived in North Carolina, Kentucky, Missouri,Oklahoma, Kansas, Indiana, Arkansas, Alabama and elsewhere.

Includes Gaither, Geather, Gater, De Gater, McGee, Oldham, Anderton, Hoskins, Carleton and related families.

Also available on microfilm and digital images.
