Brothers Caleb and Abiathur Gray fought in the War of 1812.They farmed near Howard, Steuben Co.,N.Y. afterwards.Abiathur re'c a large pension for a war injury.He seems to have lived with a daughter and his wife Amelia Aspinwald moved with her eight children to live with Cornelius Maypole [Maydole, etc.] Amelia and Cornelius were married in Athens, OH about 1860. A & A's son Samuel Grey married Wealthy Higgins whose daughter Ann was my first great grand mother.She died young in 1877 leaving a son Clare and a daughter Clara Masters.Clare is my grandfather born 1874 and died in Hornell, NY 1939.Any connections?Rumor isThomas Gray was father to Caleb and Abiathur. Have my fingers crossed.Betty Masters Cary
