Louisa Belle Daniel was born in Tishomingo County, Mississippi in 1859, the first child of William Green Daniel and Rebecca Jane Ragan. She moved with her parents near Valley View in rural Cooke County, Texas about 1872. About that same time, Hickman Gray and his children moved to Cooke County from Butler County, Kentucky. Louisa married Henry Thomas Gray, son of Hickman Gray and Mary Ricketts, on 6 August 1876 in Cooke County. Shortly after their marriage, Louisa and Henry, along with his father Hickman and sister Ada Gray, moved to rural Ellis County SE of Avalon.
Louisa and Henry Gray had the following children:

1) William Hickman, b. May 31, 1877
2) Jesse Dewitt, b. December 23, 1878
3) Mary Ethel, b. December 13, 1884

Louisa died in either December 1884 or January 1885 following the birth of Mary Ethel.
Her husband Henry, with three very young children on his hands, moved in with his sister-in-law Fannie Edgar and her husband who lived in Weiland, Hunt County, Texas. Fannie raised Louisa's children along with her own.
