I am a descendant of Jesse Alexander his daughter Caroline M married Barrum Ray in Henry cty TN. I have 3 Anquish's in my line, the first was Anquish Ray, and Anquish Alexander, and an Anquish Hurt. Thomas Jefferson Ray s/o Barrum and Caroline, married Martha Hurt. I cannot believe this was a popular name of the times since I only see it in these 3 family lines of Scots immagrents. Some names that are connected to Jesse are Dodd and Bobo and Clark. I have found several Rays with names such as Anquish, the first was Greivious Ray, his son Mourning Ray. I couldn't believe seeing all of these dismal names, and Anquish being in my 3 of my main family lines.
