A little is known of what this GRAY family did in Shasta County. I would like to learn more about Joseph C. Gray's past and ancestry! I mostly would like to learn how he was a partner to James McClatchy before the arrival to Shasta County while he was was in Sacramento. James McClatchy was the founder of the Sacramento Bee. That is where he meet Annie J. Scott the daughter of Walter William Scott also another pioneer family of Shasta County. I know that Joseph C. Gray took over for Walter Scott when he ran pack trains for the Scott & Callaghan Store also known as ( Callaghan Block ). I know they raised a large family. I am related to Joseph C. Gray through his daughter Grace Gertrude Gray who married Herman Meyer who was the son of Frederick V. Meyer Sr. The Meyer family was a pioneer family of Millville, Shasta County, California.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. But I would like to learn about the partnership between Joseph C. Gray and James McClatchy when he was living in Sacramento!
