Re: Gerry Family in Maine
I am descended from the Maine Gerry line, and was told by my great uncle, when I was a child, that we were related to Elbridge Gerry, but I can't quite make the Maine to Mass. connection.
My 2nd great grandmother was Grace Ann Gerry (b. 12/09/1828 in Kennebunkport, Maine, d. 4/30/1911 in Giltner, Hamilton, Nebraska), whose father was James Gerry (b. < 1802) and whose mother was Marry Miller (b. about 1806). Grace married Silas Gray in 1848, and had 8 children, with Charles Stanley Gray as my great-grandfather. I don't have any information on James Gerry, and whether he is related to Elbridge Gerry of Mass. I would appreciate any and all information on any James Gerrys of Maine that were born around 1806.
