My 2nd great-grandmother Ella Victoria (RAY)father Thomas L. RAY name and her mother Margaret (SEGRASS) maiden name was on Ella Victoria (RAY)'s Macon Co, Illinois marriage record. It was a 2nd marriage for Ella so I was surprized to see her maiden name on the marriage record. It looks like your Hiram SEGRASS and mine are the same one. My ancestry line with surnames, christian names, dates and localities of events is on my webpage-
Beverly Jane (HIMES) parents- Clarence Lloyd & Ella Mae (MARSH); Maternal grandparents- Charles Herbert MARSH & Janie Mae (STOGSDILL); Maternal greats- Jesse MARSH & Ella Victoria (RAY); Maternal 2nd greats- Thomas L. RAY & Margaret (SEGRASS); Maternal 3rd greats- Hiram Alexander SEGRASS E Elizabeth (WILEY or WILBY or WYLE); Do you know where in North Carolina they came from? Was it Mecklenburg Co, NC? I would enjoy seeing more on your line of ancestry.
