From the book PRESIDENTS, SOLDIERS, STATESMEN, Page 1227 comes the following:


Was born in Blair County, Pa., Dec. 5, 1841, and was a son of Philip and Susan (Lantzy) Gray, no longer living. He was married Aug. 16, 1803, in Cambria County, Pa., to Bridget Nagle, who was born there May 30, 1848. Her parents, long since numbered with the dead, were John J. and Bridget (Barnical) Nagle. Their domestic ties have been graced with eleven children, Ellarian, Mary, Edith, Sarah, Elmira, Margaret, Agnes, John, Edward, Antionette and Caleb. Comrade Gray served a short time in the Union Army during the late unpleasantness. He was 22 years of age when he was enrolled in Co. E, Pa. Bucktail. Owing to his late enlistment he was not called into active service; he was ill and taken to hospital at Washingon, D.C., where he was honorably discharged May 7, 1865. His grandfather and his wife's great-grandfather served in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. Comrade Gray had been J.P. and constable of his county, and passed away May 9, 1893, after a long and useful life; his widow has a pension and her address is Hastings, Pa.

(Hastings is of course in Cambria County, PA)
