I am seeking the parents of William Ray 12/25/1830-8/1/1898 Phillips Co., KS. William's obit said he was born on this date in Jackson Co., KS, not far from Gentry Co. He married Mary Elizabeth Dunkin in Nodaway Co., MO 20 Mar 1850. There seemed to be quite a few Ray family members since 1825 - does anyone have any information re the Ray families that were there early and possibilities for Wm's parents or siblings? Thanks!
