Silas Benjmain Ray born in 1884 in Winston co Al and wife Annie Mae Strickland lived lived in Fayette co Al. He and his son Silas Jr drowned in 1949 in the Warrior River in Fayette co Al. They had children:

Elijah Friedman born 1907
Solomon born 1914
Charlie born 1917
Lucille born 1922
Silas Jr born 1926
Johnnie Eugene born 1909

Would anyone know if any of the children listed of Silas benjamin Ray and Annie Mae Stickland are still living and who thier children are? I want to have a DNA test done that I will pay for but it has to be a direct male descendant of Silas Benjamin Ray born 1884. That means it has to be one of his sons or grandsons or greatgrandsons. It has to be a son of a son of a son. Also, the draft card of Silas Benjamin Ray in 1917 said he was white and indian. Would anyone know if the Rays from fayette co Al were native American or part native American? I think they lived in the Georges Creek and Berry Al area of Fayette co Al. My email address is Thanks, Ross
