Bob's help in my gathering information concerning his deceased wife's Gray family was most welcomed and appreciated. His grandson saw my query seeking Gray family members for help, and connected us. His wife, around 1982, had given her paternal grandmother's 1863-1865 Civil War diary to University of Arkansas - Little Rock's, Dr Carl H Moneyhon to edit and publish.Bob, among furnishing many pictures of Gray family, Carl was wife's grandfather he also transcribed the most interesting diary by Carl's mother of his earliest years, from 1867 birth till 1872, during Arkansas's Reconstruction Years, furnishing copies to the seven of us. His daughter, after mother's demise, had Carl's parents papers, which she turned over to University of Arkansas', Special Collections department, now MC-1618, summer of 2005.
