Born and named Michael Edward Prince on December 30th, 1953 to Dolores Olson Prince and Virgil L. Prince. Was the 5th of 5 children from this marriage, the first being in 1949 or perhaps 1948. At the age of 3, went to live with William M. Gray and Stella A. Gray, as a Foster child. Was adopted by the Grays and name was legally changed to Michael Edward Gray in 1959. Grew up within miles of birth place, and in a very good suburban neighborhood. Went into the Navy directly out of High School but did not serve long enough to receive Veteran's Benefits. Was Honorably Discharged. Has worked many low paying jobs through the years, until I took sick in 1994. My condition is gradually getting worse and worse, but I still function in the fast pace of life. Today (2-16-2012) is still living within blocks of birth place. Due to losing touch with most relatives, because of deaths or relocations, has been living as a single bachelor, with the exception of a few years, and realizes the great need to preserve these precious family records. Maybe one day Uncle Mike will be remembered fondly.
