Can anyone solve the mystery as to who his father was? According to 1850 census he was born in KY ca 1798-1799. Married Jane Newkirk in Crawford Co. IN, Aug 1838. Any help would be appreciated. Several researchers have been looking for many years, but have not found anything definitive.

I haven't a clue. All I know is that my grandfather always said his grandfather (James Ray) was born in KY. He also said there had been a James in every generation for as far back as anyone could remember.

I am a descendant of William Ray of TN and Howell Dillard Hurt of Todd KY. I have information on Howells parents but I do not have information on siblings. I have no information on William Ray, except he married Mary Copeland, and they had a Son Thomas who married Martha Hurt.
I would love to exchange what information I have and learn more about these familys.
