Hi George-- have you found anything more since your post? I assembled a little information on this family a couple years back. As this is not my direct GRAY family, please realize it's not all verified. I've been trying to rebuild as many Fairfield Co. GRAY families as I can. In 1850 Plumb B. GRAY is living next door to whom I believe are his parents Burton and Betsey GRAY. I don't know Betsey's last name. Burton is the son of Joseph and Elizabeth Ann (SHELTON) GRAY. Plumb B. married twice: first on 8 May 1842 in Newtown to Mary J. DOWNS. Could be her mother Anna DOWNS, age 50, in their 1850 home. Mary died 3 May 1851 in Newtown. Married second on 11 Dec 1851 to Almira BISSELL, who may have come from Massachusetts. Her father may have been named Clark BISSELL. The first four children of Plumb B. that you mention are from Mary J., Plumb B. Jr. and Charles H. are from Almira. Then Charles H. GRAY married a Julia SHARPE, I believe. They had one child, Raphael S. GRAY, born about 1873, christened 14 Oct 1884 in Newtown, and died 24 Jun 1920 in West Granby, Hartford Co., CT. Raphael was married 13 Jan 1897 in Trumbull, CT to Martha Jane STOWE. She was born 9 Nov 1876 in Southbury, New Haven Co., CT. They had daughters Gertrude C., Gladys E. and Esther W. and eventually moved to Springfield, Hampden Co., MA. Hope this helps. Jeff
