John Gray of Virginia

Surnames: Gray, Broadwater, Kilgore, Stallard, Osborne, Godsey, Hartsock, Harris, Hall
I am looking for information for parents/ancestors of John Gray from Scott Co., VA.

John was born about 1776 in Va, I believe his father was Walter Gray (b. 1750 in England) and a woman named Elizabeth - but I have no proof yet. John died in 1851.

John Gray married Martha Patsey Broadwater in 1805. She was born about 1784 in VA.

Children were:
Elizabeth who married Robert Kilgore III
William who married Nancy Green Stallard
John R. who married Elizabeth Osborne
Martha who married Clinton Godsey
Isaac A. who married a Malvina unknown
James H. who married Charlotte Osborne
Walter who married Hannah Hartsock
Mary "Polly" Gray who married George w. Hartsock

I am descended from Isaac A. and Malvina (unknown). Isaas was a Postmaster on the 1850 census, but disappeared between 1852 and 1860 for unknown reason. Malvina and children are living with 2 of John's siblings on 1860 census.

I am looking for information as to who Malvina was.
Also information to verify parents and any other ancestoral information - uncles, aunts, grandparents, etc.
I do have some of the Broadwater information.

The information I have gathered on Walter Gray Sr. and Elizabeth is unverified but follows: (I have heard that Walter was born about 1750 in England and immigrated to America when he was 12 yrs old in the 1760s)
I believe other children besides John are:
Nancy, b. abt 1775 married to Ralph Kilgore
John - see above
Walter Jr., b. abt 1778
Isaac - no info
Martha - married Jonathon Osborne
Thomas Gray - no info
Elizabeth - married Edward Harris
Rebecca - married an unknown Hall

If anyone can help me with this line, I would greatly appreciate it as I have hit brick walls.

Thanks very much,
Jeanie

Edoz1,
How are you related to the family?
I am descended from Webster.
Do you have any verification that Isaac's wife, Melvina was a Moore or any more information on her?
I have been looking for years.
Would love to compare notes with you!

Martha "Mattie" Gray who married Jonathan Osborne is my 3rd Great grandmother.
I do not have any information on Melvina Moore. I got the information on her maiden name from another searcher. Since she is not in my direct line I have not done any searching to verify her name.
I do not have a Webster in my files. Would love to connect him with the family if possible.
