Birth: Oct. 15, 1843
Death: Aug. 6, 1887

Thomas Jefferson Gray, Jr. was a son of Thomas Jefferson "Jeff" Gray and Phoebe Carter Brooks Williams Gray, who are also buried there.

Thomas Jefferson Gray, Sr. migrated to the area from the Abbeville District, SC, after the death of his first wife.

Phoebe Carter Brooks was raised "not too far" east of where the Brooks-Henkel Cemetery is located. The cemetery lies on her father's land.

Jeff married Phoebe Carter Brooks Williams. Phoebe had a very young daughter, Narcissa; Jeff had a teenage son, Frederick, and a young daughter, Ann Lucinda. Jeff and Phoebe had several children together: T.J. Gray, Jr., Allen, Joseph Brooks, Emma, and John Micajah.

Per descendants, Phoebe and Jeff had plenty of land, a nice big farmhouse with a large porch that went across the front and around the side of the house. During The War Between the States, the Yankees came through and caused much damage, burning their barn that was full of stored cotton. The house is no longer there, but was located shortly to the left on the rocky road to Agency from the cemetery.

T.J. Gray, Jr. was a private in Co. G of the "Agency Rifles" of Oktibbeha Co., mustered into state service at Agency on 4/20/1861.
