THE JACOB GRAYS OF NORTH CAROLINA Updated May 21, 2001
About Our Family Research
My ancestor Jacob Gray and his brother,Shared, (also Sherrod) fought in The Revolutionary war and were awarded pensions while living in Pulaski County Arkansas. They were originally from Granville County, North Carolina and we think their father was William Gray of Granville County. Samson (Sampson),the son of Jacob,helped found the Gray Township in Pulaski County Arkansas. The town of Jacksonville was later established on Sampson Gray's original 2,746 acres.
This family of Grays married into the Evens (Evans), Snow, Rayburn, Ragland Families of Alabama, Georgia, Tenn, Miss. Any information regarding these early settlers would be greatly appreciated.
