Henry Allen Gray
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 19, 1847
Death: Oct. 2, 1889

Allen Gray's parents were Thomas Jefferson Gray & Phoebe Carter Brooks Williams Gray. His older, half-siblings included: Frederick Gray, Ann Lucinda Gray and Narcissa Elizabeth Williams (Carroll) FAG# 24329746 and a few who didn't survive until his time. His full siblings included: T.J., Jr., Joseph Brooks, Emma, and John Micajah.

His father was a planter. Per descendants of his siblings, 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. The house is no longer there, but was located shortly to the left (on the part of their land John Micajah inherited) on the rocky road to Agency from the cemetery. The Gray children enjoyed a privileged life before the War Between the States.

His father died in 1858, when Allen was age 11. During the War Between the States, most men (incl. older brother T.J., Jr. & brother-in-law Dr John Gillespie Carroll) in the area served in the "Agency Rifles" or otherwise. Allen and his younger siblings remained on the farm with their mother, with their grandfather (Allen Brooks) and other family nearby. The Yankees came through and caused much damage, burning their barn that was full of stored cotton.
