Is this really Thomas & Mary? See the note at the bottom of this page.

This site is dedicated to researching the ancestors and descendants of Thomas & Mary James Gray. To the best of our knowledge, Thomas was born at(?) Skibo Castle in Creich (Dornoch?), County Sutherland, Scotland in 1761. Along with his wife Mary and four young children, they immigrated to the United States sometime before 1792 settling in Butler County, PA. Once in America, they had four additional children.

The children of Thomas & Mary Gray include:

Sophia Gray Critchlow (1784-1871)
James Gray (1786-1868)
William Gray (1789-1867)
John Gray (1791-1853)
Nancy Gray Graham (1794-?)
Margaret Gray Shorts (1796-?)
Thomas Gray Jr. (1799-1876)
Mary Gray Boyd (1801-?)

We are in the process of researching the family and adding details from The Gray Clan published in the 1950s by the Thomas Gray Clan of Butley County, Pennsylvania family association. We have started to add the family tree presented in The Gray Clan to this site. It is pretty meager at present but will continue to grow with time!

You can also download a scanned copy of The Gray Clan.

“A memorial to a grand old patriot Thomas Gray. Inspired by his unswerving devotion to ideals, christian, family, patriotism.” –The Gray Clan

If you are a descendant of Thomas and Mary Gray, we would love to hear from you and share information. Please contact us!
