US Congressman, Jurist. Elected as a Democrat to represent New York's 22nd District in the Twenty-fifth Congress, he served from March 4, 1837 to March 3, 1839. An 1821 graduate of Union College, he studied law, was admitted to the bar in 1823 and set up practice in Elmira, New York. During his single term in Congress he was a member of the Committee on Claims; this was his only major venture into politics. In 1846, New York Governor Silas Wright appointed Gray Circuit Judge and Vice Chancellor for the state's Sixth Judicial District, and the following year he won the first of three terms as Justice of the New York Supreme Court, serving until 1860. His last public office was as Commissioner of Appeals (1870 to 1875). Gray maintained his Elmira law practice well into his 80s. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
