Hi - this is the web site of Chris Gray. My main purpose is to make available the results into my Family History and the One-Name Study I’m undertaking into the name of GRAY with its variants of GREY and GRAIE. Further extensions of this site will take into account other aspects of my life.
The “Gray Clan” site is dedicated to researching the ancestors and descendants of Thomas & Mary James Gray. It is understood that Thomas was born at Skibo Castle in Creich Parish, County Sutherland, Scotland in 1761. Along with his wife Mary and four young children, they immigrated to the United States sometime before 1792 settling in Butler County, PA.
