Notes. I'm not sure that Alexander M Gray is the son of James Gray & Eliza Hollingsworth Gray. Many other researchers make this connection because the name, age and location fit, but the problem is that the 1860 Federal Census shows that their child Alexandria Gray is a female. The connection here exists for further research.
