I read your story about Catherine Gray Richardson McGuire Haycock. Her brother John was my great grandfather John Gray. He married Nancy Hunter and their son Abner Loren Gray was my grandfather. I have a photo of all of John's children as adults. I am searching for the father of Thomas Ellis Gray. I think he was born in VA, tho the shifting borders at the time make it hard to find how it was recorded. I've found Ellis Grays. but have no idea if it's the right Gray. Hope to hear from you. I'd be glad to share my line. My grandpa bought land in North Dakota, but his sons stayed in IL.
Hope to hear from you. Fran Gray
