This Henry Gray has unidentified wives and perhaps the info in the SAR membership will help to identify these women and their children.

Sheila, he died long before the American Revolution so would not have an SAR application related to him. Even a son would probably be too old for the Rev War.
Hi Jillaine, yes I understand that he died before the Rev War, yet a gedcom has perpetuated the 'source' for many profiles in this line. I always like to check the documents because you never know what someone might have written when describing their illustrious ancestors. Also perhaps the person who did file the SAR app will give info about more of the family members whose profiles are incomplete.

There is a very small list of SAR books here: A National Register of the Society, Sons of the American Revolution

A quick search through these books found: SAR membership #14213. This lists two people named Henry Gray (father and son).

The wives listed in the bio (1) Unknown Unknown (2) Hannah (Sanford) Gunn (3) Margaret (Unknown) are what's listed in the Families of Old Fairfield. It's the "go to" for this area and Jacobus was a meticulous researcher.
