Thank you so much for that info. I have collected quiet a bit but not a lot on the Drays. My mother's father was Floyd Straley and Susan Elizabeth was my mother's mother. Floyd was my grandpa, and Susan was my grandma. I have a Sarah Dray that lived in my home town Peoria, IL she lived in Peoria Heights, IL I have her born Sept, 30, 1885 died Feb 25, 1919 at the age of 33. her father was Samuel Dray and her mother was Susan Winchell. She is buired at Springdale Cemetary in Peoria IL Would you know of any info on any one that could be alive from the Straleys? My mother died in 1939 when I was 2 years old. My own e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org I found a 3rd cousin on the Straley side. My mother's name was Ruth Straley. Would you know of any one else would be alive from the Dray's or the Straley's that could remember my mother? I dearly love to do Geneolgy. Hope to hear from you soon.
