John Michael/Morgan Gray(1826)TN. married Mary Ann Ball (1830)in Platte Co. Mo. on Dec 3, 1848 per Platte records. John's father is James Gray & Lamond/Lammonds mother. John Gray d. 1861, Platte records show widow Mary A administered bond $500.00. I tried to get copies of that record, but it was not found in the file. I do have copy of John's father James Gray's probate records. Mary Ann Balls father could be Singleton Ball, who m. Lucinda Timberlake. The marriage is listing her name as Timberlick, I find little on him. What happened to Singleton? I located land records for a Lucinda Ball, St Charles MO., is this the wife of Singleton? John & Mary Ann Gray are in 1860 Monegaw, ST. Clair MO. census. Lucinda 1850(my ggrandmother) m. 1st to AJ Moody 2. Alexander Fowler, my ggrandfather. Mary 1851 Margaret 1855 James A 1864 John W 1859. Mary & Margaret have moved to Walla Walla WA. sometime after that census. Mary is married 1869 to Hughes Rober Taylor Benton Co. WA Margaret m 1872 to Charles Clark Walla Walla WA. Why did they move to WA? Some family residing there? Unable to locate the 2 males James A. & John W. in that 1860 census. I found a JA Gray who married Sophronia....still working on that one. Father John Gray d. 1861, what happened to mother Mary Ann? Appreciative of any clues for research.
