Due to a long standing illness 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 Ancestry.com 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 lovely 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 and the Du Puy line are suspect. The Witherspoon is correct to my knowlwdge even though it is overseas.
I've started a collection of all the descendents 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 compleate 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.
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Family Tree DNA.

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

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 ?

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