I am trying to locate a certain Jacob Gray. "History of Mitchell and Worth Counties, Iowa" (1884), notes the following about Jacob's son Harlow: "Harlow Gray was born in Meadville, Crawford Co., Penn., Feb. 11, 1816. He was a son of Jacob and Eleanor (Eaton) Gray, the father having been a soldier in the War of 1812, and his grandfather, Samuel Eaton, was a commissioned officer in the same war. Harlow's parents were natives of Vermont, where they were married. • Mr. Gray died when Harlow was three years of age, and Mrs. Gray afterwards married Samuel Scribner, by which union there were five children.
I have quite a bit of information on the Eaton family.However, I have not been able to find any details about Jacob Gray.Interestingly, in the 1820 US Census for Meadville (enumerated 19 Jan. 1821), Jacob Gray is listed with one female (age 16-25); no children present.This seems to conflict with other known information.
If anyone has any information about Jacob Gray from the War of 1812, I would be grateful.
