States: Alabama: Clay
Thanks for the reply. Looks like this John Ray could be a brother to my Great Grandmother Alice Ray. I have had the worst time on my Wallace and Ray lines. One of these days, I am going to get down to Clay and Coosa Counties and kick around for a day. The first time I find my Great Grand William John Wallace is in the 1880 census in Nixburg, Coosa County, AL. On the map, I see there is also a Ray community near Nixburg. Family lore has always said that he was adopted and that is birth surname was Powell. Thanks again. Rick
