GRAY Family

First Generation

1. Thomas Jefferson1 Gray (#1) was born in Alabama ABT. 1861. Thomas died February 18, 1905 in Oklahoma or Missouri.

He married Mary E. Bowback in Stoddard County, Missouri, October 17, 1882. (Mary E. Bowback is #2.) Mary was born in Missouri 1859. Mary died January 1, 1905 in Oklahoma or Missouri, at 45 years of age. Information about Thomas "Jeff" Jefferson Gray comes from Lizzie's bible. Her bible states that he died on 2/18/1905 and that he was 43 years old at the time of his death. From that, I've extrapolated that he was born either in 1861 or 1862.

Thomas Jefferson Gray and Mary E. Bowback had the following children:

child 2 i. Lizzie Jane2 Gray (#3) was born in Dexter, MO August 7, 1883. Lizzie died January 11, 1964 in Tustin, CA, at 80 years of age. She married Jesse James Johnson in Missouri, December 8, 1900. (Jesse James Johnson is #35.) Jesse was born in Crawford Co., AR August 17, 1881. Jesse was the son of John T. Johnson and Mary Ann Hatridge. Jesse died ABT. 1947 in California. (See Jesse James Johnson for the continuation of this line.)
