      Hi Sharon,
      My mother is Myrtle Bert Tine Gray. Her father was James Monroe Gray. His
      father was Jefferson Gray. His father was Isaac Gray. They homesteaded
      land in Jackson County at Pisgah when the first opportunity came. Family
      members have lived on the same land since before the Indian removal in 1829.
      We have a lot of information on the Gray family. Isaac Gray had two square
      miles of land. I don't know if he had a brother or father, but on the land
      records at Scottsboro, there was a Samuel Gray listed on the neighboring
      homestead. The Gray's have multiplied and married into a lot of the pioneer
      families. A lot of our near kin, the Gaddis family moved to Beaumont, TX and
      some became wealth in the oil business. I don't remember SHRADER or DOVER,
      but my information is far from complete. My husband is the genealogist in
      our family. He has a WebPage. http://edge.net/~jwbrown which he
      continually updates. If you will check out the above names you find a lot
      of Gray information, or you can start with me Ruby Headrick Brown and check
      my mother's lineage. Perhaps you can help us add to it if you recognize any
      of the present information. My husband, Johnnie, also has an email address:
      jwbrown@... if you have questions about our Grays or new information to
      add. Good luck. Ruby H. Brown

      Can any of you tell me who are connected to the GRAY name if you know of a
      connection to your lines with the SHRADER or DOVER family?
      I have a Janie Gray married to
      William Henry Shrader. I have her name, but no dates. I have his name, and
      dates, but no location of death, or their marriage.He is from Jackson
      County, Al. I also have a
      Nancy M. Gray, no dates or location for birth or death or parentage, but she
      is married to William Alfred Dover b.1833 Cherokee County,Georgia and d.
      Aft. 1900 Murray County, Georgia. Would like to connect some more
      information on these two.

      Hello Jim,

      You have a good name. My grandfather was James Monroe Gray (Jim). I've
      heard of the Gray connection with those in Tennessee. I don't know how to
      connect at this time. We just don't have any information prior to 1820.
      will keep looking, and keep updating our Gray information. My husband,
      Johnnie W. Brown, has a good WebPage, http://edge.net/`jwbrown He keeps
      fairly up-to-date. Check it out if you like. Start with Isaac Gray and
      descendants. There are lots of them. I wish I knew more about his
      ancestors. I just sent a note to the jacksongenealogy group, you might be
      interested in.

      Please keep in touch. We've got to be cousins. I wish I could remember
      Gray who fought on the side of the union in the Civil War. I believe he
      from Tennessee. I believe he was a General or almost. I believe the
      Scottsboro Heritage Center has a lot of Civil War History that has
      about him. Digging up the past is real interesting but illusive.

      Please keep in touch.

      I am interested in the Gray family prior to 1820 in Jackson
      County, AL.

      Do you have any information on Robert Gray who was born about 1792 in
      TN. He married Tabitha who was born in AL. They had two children in
      AL - Sarah A. Gray who was born about 1818 and William C. Gray who
      was born in Jackosn County in 1820. They moved to TN by 1821.
