1st w/o Rev Robert Gray.

NOTE: Much of my information is from New Hampshire cohort, B Holt, 9/4/03.

Last known son with 1st wife, Oliver Crosby Gray (1800-1827), is thought to be named for Oliver Crosby, Esq, of Dover (1769-1851) married Harriot Chase, d/o Stephen Chase, Esq., same month of Gray's baptism.

Last known born, Oliver Crosby Gray, is thought to be the namesake of his oldest brother, Peter's 1st born in 1832.


A Gray family Bible was sold on eBay. This is an extract regarding that Bible: The title page of this Family Bible contains additional information of interest:

Lineage of GRAY family, beginning with ROBERT & LYDIA GRAY, born June 2, 1761 and June 10, 1762 respectively, and married March 22, 1787.

Lineage of Gray family follows,
last record being Susannah P. Gray, born August 19, 1803 and died February 8, 1872. This Bible was clearly passed down through generations as at least two and probably 3 distinct, though related, handwriting styles are apparent.
