Just got some recent info that would indicate that this Grose family hailed from Lancaster, PA. At what time they came to Highland Co. VA, is still uncertain. Mary m. Alexander McCray in 1835. They are in they 1810 census of that county. Mary was related to(sister?) Henry Grose who moved to Bath Co. VA. and raised their son: William Alexander McCray (sometimes refered to as William G.McCray, for that reason.) I now know that Wm. A. Grose McCray was born in 1857. I am guessing that Mary(his mother was born abt 1810 or 12. That would make her 18-20 when she married. That would make her 45-47 when her son was born, so maybe she was younger when she married. Then again, maybe that is what happened to her. She had one difficult birth at an older age and it killed her. Any info on Wm A or Wm G McCray, or Mary Grose or their parents would be appreciated.
