Actually the guy listed as Bobby Kay is Leo Burke. The other guy in the picture with him and Garvin is Bobby Kay. Leo may have been using the name Terry Kay when down there, but Bobby is definately the guy on the left and the guy on the right of Garvin and in the other pictures is definately a young Leo Burke. I grew up watching him(and Bobby and Rudy Kay and the other Cormier brother The Beast) in the Maritimes where they were to the Maritime region what the Von Erich's were to Dallas. Leo in my opinion is one of the greatest wrestlers who ever laced up a pair of boots. He really knew his way around the squared circle.
You guys are absolutely right.We have also received e-mails that they wrestled as Terry and Tommy Martin in the Central States area.However when they did tours of Jim Crockett Promotions from 1970-73 they went by Terry and Bobby Kay.This photo was from 1973.

Yeah they did go by the Martins in Central States. That's funny they did that cause the guy on the left is widely known as Bobby Kay up here in the Maritimes. The other brother went by Rudy Kay and the oldest brother was called The Beast, then there was Leo who was the most over of the four. I actually was talking to the Beast last summer at the racetrack in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. He is big into the harness racing scene here in the Maritimes. He still looks good and also looks to be in good health.
I remember Ronnie teaming with brother Terry and also later on when he formed a great team with Thunderbolt Patterson. One Friday night in Lynchburg, Virginia, the cops had to stop traffic on Church Street as Garvin and Patterson fought Gene and Ole Anderson in the middle of the street. That was great fun.
