I am a lost McCraw whose grandfather was married to a Zeigler. My name is James Mason Gray, being adopted at birth by James F. & Thelma Gray in Tampa, Florida. My birth mother was Lucille McCraw (Samuels) and my grandfather, her father, was was Mr. Arnie McCraw of Mt. Airy, North Carolina, married to Nina Alma Zeigler. My mothers sister was named Gail, but I don't know her married name. I am now seventy years old and would like to preserve the family history for my grandchildren. I am trying to build a family tree and I am hoping someone can assist.
I needto acquire information on the Arnie McCraw family of Mt. Airy, North Carolina and their ancestors so a genealogy family tree can be put together for my son and five granddaughters. I am also interested to know if any of the family served during the American Civil War.
