Gray/Grey families of Napan, Northumberland Co.
Posted by: Cathy Kirby (ID *****8852) Date: January 30, 2011 at 13:58:26

I recently found out my gggg grandmother Grace (Grizel?) Gray w/o John Steel/e was from Napan. She was born about 1809.
In the 1851 census I found the following:
1. William born 1813 in N.B. Scot.
Wife likely Ellen Gillis.
2. Peter 49 Scotch came to N.B. 1812.
Wife Mary came to N.B. 1833.
3. Alex 16 a blacksmith apprentice with William Hay. He is likely connected to one of the above families.
4. Jane 50 Scotch born N.B.
Died Sept. 1, 1868 at the residence of her nephew William Gray-Mrs. Jean Gray @ 70. Born about 1798. Probably her.
She may have been Jane Downs and married to William born 1797 but a William born at that date might not fit as father to above William.
5. Elizabeth born 1800 in NB w/o William? He was possibly ruling elder of St. John's church.
Presbyterian records show daughter Margert Gray born to Peter in 1818.
And a Peter Gray Sr. died Mar, 5, 1836 at 70. Born about 1766.
Grace possible sister to William but she was born in NB so that may leave Peter out as a brother. Was she daughter to Peter Sr. Or was there another Gray?
