Gray [my 3rd great-grandfather] who came from Antrim, England [Ireland or Virginia] in the 1800s and who is the great grandfather of Jim [James Malachi Gray, 1882-1964, my great uncle] and Ed Gray [John Ed Gray, 1886-1959, my great uncle] and grandfather of Richard Gray [1853-1917, my great-grandfather]. Some say the first grave was that of a male slave and unmarked. However, according to markers, the earliest is T. L. Kent, February 12, 1847-February 2, 1873.”
