I am actively seeking the parents of Thomas Wray b.15 Dec 1776, Gallia Co., Ohio; d. 17 Oct 1843, Gallia Co., Ohio. Thomas married Rachel Neal on 26 Sep 1802 in Monroe Co., WV. They moved to the Gallia/Lawrence Co., Ohio area approximately 1820. Thomas had at least one proven brother, John Wray b.ca. 1775, Virginia and d. 1862 in Christian Co., MO. John married Sarah McGlammery in 1799 in Greenbrier (later became Monroe Co.) Co., WV. John moved to Lawrence Co., Ohio about 1815, later to Vermillion Co., IL about 1829 then to Missouri about 1832. In 1834 he married Nany (Kyle) Rapp (widow of Daniel Rapp) in Greene Co., MO. Thomas may have had another brother named Edmond or Edward. Possibility of more siblings. We have a oteamoe of experienced researchers that has gathered a great deal of data on this family and others with the surname Wray - often spelled Ray - and sometimes Wrey, Rae, Rea & Reah. We have seen the name spelled differently within the same document. There is strong evidence that Thomas & John were originally from Buckingham/Amherst counties in Virginia. Of particular interest is Moses Ray who left a will in 1766, Amherst Co., Virginia. His property was originally purchased in Albemarle Co., the part which later became Amherst Co. Moses had sons, Moses Jr. (Later moved to Georgia), William (later moved to Georgia), & Thomas (whereabouts unknown). Any information on Thomas, John and the family of Moses Ray will be most welcome. Because the Buckingham County Courthouse burned in 1869, we must rely on more personal records, i.e., journals, family bibles, letters, etc. Please contact me, Loraine Kerns, via e-mail at kernsk-2@idt.net. Thank you!

Loraine Kerns Wed Sep 3 03:16:00 1997
I am actively seeking the parents of Thomas Wray b.15 Dec 1776, Gallia Co., Ohio; d. 17 Oct 1843, Gallia Co., Ohio. Thomas married Rachel Neal on 26 Sep 1802 in Monroe Co., WV. They moved to the Gallia/Lawrence Co., Ohio area approximately 1820. Thomas had at least one proven brother, John Wray b.ca. 1775, Virginia and d. 1862 in Christian Co., MO. John married Sarah McGlammery in 1799 in Greenbrier (later became Monroe Co.) Co., WV. John moved to Lawrence Co., Ohio about 1815, later to Vermillion Co., IL about 1829 then to Missouri about 1832. In 1834 he married Nany (Kyle) Rapp (widow of Daniel Rapp) in Greene Co., MO. Thomas may have had another brother named Edmond or Edward. Possibility of more siblings. Many members of the Wray/Ray family settled in Mason Co. & Cabell Co., WV just across the river from Gallia & Lawrence Cos., Ohio. We have a "team" of experienced researchers that has gathered a great deal of data on this family and others with the surname Wray - often spelled Ray - and sometimes Wrey, Rae, Rea & Reah. We have seen the name spelled differently within the same document. There is strong evidence that Thomas & John were originally from Buckingham/Amherst counties in Virginia. Of particular interest is Moses Ray who left a will in 1766, Amherst Co., Virginia. Moses had sons, Moses Jr. (Later moved to Georgia), William (later moved to Georgia), & Thomas (whereabouts unknown). We also suspect a relationship to Col. James Ray of Mercer Co., KY. B. abt. 1760 in Amherst Co., Virginia, he married Milly Yoacum in Linclon Co., Virginia before 1783. James enlisted with George Rogers Clark in 1775, when he was already a resident of KY. His father John Ray died abt. 1764 in Amherst Co., Virginia. James' mother, Mary Buntin Ray, moved to KY shortly after her husband's death. James' grandfather Fergus Ray, died intestate 1763 in Amherst Co., VA. Fergus was formerly in Goochland Co., Virginia, and his wife's name was Elizabeth. There is strong evidence of a blood relationship between this Ray family and Moses Ray who died in 1766 in Amherst Co., Virginia, especially since we find a marriage between Moses Ray (probably from Amherst Co., VA) and Mary Anderson dated 18 Sep 1828 in Mercer CO., KY. Any information on Thomas, John and the families of the 2 Moses Rays and James Ray will be most welcome. Because the Buckingham County Courthouse burned in 1869, we must rely on more personal records, i.e., journals, family bibles, letters, etc. Please contact me via e-mail at kernsk-2@idt.net.BAXTER g myrah
