Birth: Aug. 2, 1806
Death: Dec. 28, 1871

There is a marriage bond on 26 Jun. 1843 in Rockingham County, N.C. for Robert Wray and Prissilla Thomas. This may indicate that she was Roberts' 2nd wife.
Rockingham County, N.C. Unrecorded Wills, 1785-1922:
30 Jan. Court 1871:
Robert Wrays' Will was never Probated because there was only one witness to it.
James Martin had land in 1784 between Robert Wray and John Hodge near Troublesome Creek in Rockingham County, N.C.
On Feb 12, 1781, Tarleton, a British officer, camped on Ironworks Rd. just south of the Martins' and Wrays' properties.
The old Speedwell Ironworks are gone now, but if you look into the woods, you can see the foundation.
Children of Robert and Prissilla that I know of were:
J.D. Wray
R.T. Wray
M.E. Wray
The other children listed on the 1850 Census below were by Robert and his 1st wife.
They were P.J., T.H., A.M. and M.J. Wray.
