Due to a long standing illness, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, that there is as of yet no cure, I am unable to maintain the tree I have been working on and especially those, well over a thousand, that I adopted from a distant cousin who was deleting his tree. I will keep my direct line back 8 generations for now and 4th cousins and closer but beyond that I am unable to devote the time they deserve and need.

Jeff Gray, no longer a newbie but still learning more all the time. I started inputting information from a LDS pedigree done for my Uncle Rainey back in 1960 by Lillian O. Roberts. Also from a cousin's tree on where several cousins of several degrees are working. Dad's side is pretty slim so I'll be working on that as I find stuff.

Another cousin and his son have a good bit of info on Ancestry so I've been able to fill in a good bit more on Dad's side. I have adopted a family line of some distant kin that was being deleted by a manager who had left Wikitree and will be a long time verifying that and another family line that probably isn't true, some aristocrats but unsourced as of yet connections. Take anything overseas with a grain of salt unless there is a source. I'll be adding those later as I have time and can fill in what I have, what Ancestry has and what I can find. In particular the Fleming line past, John Fleming,, and the Du Puy, now completely disproven, an income producing fake for a genealogist who knew better, lines are suspect. The Witherspoon is correct up to the marriage of, but that and beyond are very suspect, even though it is overseas.

I've started a collection of all the descendants of the original Gray in America, this will take a LONG time but hope to have the bones of it in place by Spring 2013. Currently building it in Ancestry and will be placing it here when that is as complete as Ancestry has. Some is in but not much yet.

I've found a copy of Marcius Demetrius Raymond, "Gray Genealogy" 1887 Higginson Book Company with a lot of my kin in it. He has gathered several generations, up to 4, of the Grays that moved up north from New Jersey to New York after the Revolutionary War, while his other 4 brothers moved south. Most of what I have found has been quite accurate and I have enjoyed discovering what happened to Robert Gray and his descendants. Pretty obviously we fought one another during the Battle of Nashville for sure and probably other places I haven't run into yet. Most of what he has written is already and but having some trouble finding dates for the last generation and in a few the one before that.

I've stopped adding profiles and am going back through and adding sources, I still have thousands on Ancestry that have yet to be added but need to get what I already have in better shape.

Noble-141 was linked to my 8th great grandmother Abigail Buck. He was married to an Abigail Buck but not this one. I created the profile for his wife Abigail and posted working notes on his profile in hopes more sources can be collected and his parents and children can be added. Thanks. Elizabeth

Jeff ~ go ahead and add the " The Peerage of England, Scotland and Ireland" references. As you say, it's better than the "gedcoms" as source (-:

I am going to add some sources too but you are right, they are EuroAristo profiles and I will PPP them ( profile protect) .

Thanks for adopting them.

Are your Grays from Albany, NY area ?

Jeff ~ I think I can find some more sources for those profiles you listed. I will put them on when I find them sometime this week.

Thanks for checking on those Temples.

Hi Jeff -- reviewing the proposed merge to Tryon-52. Just want to double check my data on the spouse.
posted by Michael Maranda
I think I see what you did. You removed her as spouse to avoid the merge but that is not what we will need to do. This profile is meant to be the wife. If the last name is unknown then we just need to merge into the profile with unknown as the last name at birth.

I am going to change the merge to a match until we can determine the correct last name at birth.
