Hi Ann
Thanks for the information. I descend from solomon ray and Jane Church. He was listed in the 1860 Winston co al census as you know and he signed a loyalty oath in 1867 in winston co al but after that there are no records I have been able to find that say when or where he died. I do know his wife Jane was listed in the 1880 Winston co Al census living withe her oldest son Silas Benjamin Ray. He died in 1885 in Winston co Al. There is no record of when or where Jane Church Ray died that I can find. The Winston co Al courthouse burned in 1892 and that is probaly why there are no records. Barbary Ray had a sister named Lucinda Ray born in 1837 in Tallapoosa co Al and married Thomas M Abel in 1862 in Winston co Al. I found them living in Fayette co Al in the 1900 Glen Allen Al census and I believe she died shortly after that but I can not find any records showing when and where she died. I believe Thomas M Abel or Ables died in 1918 in Walker co Al in the Jasper Al area. Would you look in your book and tell me if there is any mention of Solomon Ray or his wife Jane Church Ray or their son Silas Benjamin Ray who died in 1885. I read his obit and it said he was buried in "the Grove" but I do not know where that was and neither does anyone else that has replied to a query I posted. Solomon Ray's property and Thomas M Abel/Able's land was close to the Walker co Al line. It looks like maybe a few miles north of the Walker co Al lilne. Part of Solomon Ray's land is now covered by Lake Lewis Smith. He might have been buried on his land. Any help you could give lme would be appreciated. Thanks,Ross
