It appears Gray-28091 is a living person and not a member of WikiTree so the profile is private black and we can see no info such as dates and locations to use to help you search.

Try entering the info for your Grandfather into FamilySearch.org and see if it shows his children.

Terri, I have also had some luck just Googling people.  I've written letters to people whose addresses I found on-line, and sometimes it took months, but I got some good responses.
David,

Unfortunately, I have only the information I have given and was told to me.  Hence why I am reaching out here I have done hours of research both on line and Ancestry.com. with no luck, just hoping someone knows something about him.  My Grandfather had an affair with his mother and my grandmother did not allow for him to be known or Acknowledge while she was alive.  

Thank you for your response,

Terri
I have done googling for the past 7 years and have had no luck, that is why I am trying this as a source.  Would love to have him added to our tree, as he is family.
Terri, in this case, I would say your best bet is DNA testing.  For the best coverage, I would pick Ancestry. (I'm assuming your ancestors are U.S.-born, but because your profile is red-locked, I can't tell.)
Julie,

We have done DNA on Ancestry.com that is connected to a tree I have created, but no luck so far.  Just hoping it is known in a family and someone will reach out here.  Thank you for your response.
Terri, you probably have some matches from that part of your tree, don't you?  Are there any you can contact, even if you don't know exactly who they are?  (Just judge by the match strength.)  You may have tried that.  I'm just trying to cover all the bases.
