Thank you for the response,Terry. I now realize there were Grays scattered from Maine to Ga. early in the 18th century.
Does anyone know if there were Grays in the earliest settlements around Jamestown? Could they have been included among the initial settlers?

I am looking for anyone related to John Campbell Gray and his one of his brothers named Gerald Gray. They were 2 of 3 sons I believe. Their parents were Guy and Christina Gray originally from Scotland. Christina was born a Campbell but I do not know for certain. She was born out of wedlock to a governess and a Duke of Scotland. Christina was sent to the conservatory of music in Scotland and then went on to become a teacher before she met Guy Gray. Are there any connections out there?

I have done extensive investigation pertaining to Thomas Gray of Jamestown, VA 1608. First two families left no heirs. He was given the first land grant in Virginia. Heirs through sons Thomas and William by his third wife.

Not sure how my branch of Gray family
ties in, but found it interesting that
we have the following names in common:
John Gray, jr., died 1822; married Mary
"Polly" Reaburn, 2/2/1791. They had the
following children: James, Henry, John,
Archibald, Margaret, Jenny, Elizabeth,
Mary, Rebecca Alexander. I have no
specific info on James (some reference
to his being a soldier in the War of
1812), but his father
John, Jr. was prominent figure in Monroe
County, WV. Grandfather John Gray, Sr. (born
1740)came from Northern Ireland in 1761.

Info I sent on James Gray, being soldier
in War of 1812, may be incorrect I believe
that James Gray was a son. James Gray,
son of John Gray, Sr. did serve in
the Virginia Militia and married Mary
Nickell.
