Some time ago you were nice enough to provide me with some information about Barbary Ray Ganey. Her sister Lucinda Ray,daughter of Solomon Ray and Jane Church, was my ancestor. You had mentioned a genealogist that was very good. She had helped you on the info about Barbary Ray and her sister Mary Francis who also married a Ganey. The last record I can find about Solomon ray was when he signed a loyalty oath in 1867 in Winston co Al after the Civil War. I can not find him in the 1870 Winston co Al census although I think the census taker just missed the southeast part of Winston co Al where Lake Lewis Smith is now or that part of the census report was lost or destroyed. I know he was there in 1870 because his wife Jane was listed as a widow living with her oldest son Silas Benjamin Ray in the 1880 census. As I am sure you knw the courthouse in Winston co Al burned in 1892 and apparently all the records were destroyed. I am trying to find when Solomon Ray died. I would like to hire your genealogist friend. Would you ask her to contact me at Thanks,Ross
