My great-grandfather, Millard Ernest Gray (1879-1950), was born in Franklin. Both of his parents were Grays from Southampton County. His paternal line was Samuel Littleton Gray (1848-1913), Mills L Gray (1809-1867) and William Gray. His maternal line was Martha T "Mattie" Gray (1848-1913), Richard C "Dickey" Gray (1809-1880), Benjamin Gray, Richard B Gray.
That's as far back as I can get with my Southampton Grays. My questions are these: 1, are these two Gray lines are related; 2, from where did these Grays originate (from which country) and 3, when did they arrive in America?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
