I am looking for any info on the parents and siblings of my great-great-great-grandmother, EMILY FLORENCE GRAY. She was born abt. 1848 in Pennsylvania. She died May 24, 1919 in Benton Harbor, Berrien County, Michigan.
Bet. 1865 and 1868 she married JESSE T. RICE (son of Zachariah Rice and Nancy Landis), in PA, possibly in Landisburg, Perry County, PA (where Jesse was born and raised). According to the 1870 census, they lived in Poboyne Twp., PA; 1880 they lived in Landisburg, PA, and then in 1900 census they were in Berrien Co., Michigan. Every census showed Emily's parents were also born in PA.
According to Emily's death record, her father's name was David Gray. I know the Gray part is right, but I'm not so sure about the first name being David. I looked at every David Gray in 1850 census (when Emily would have been abt. 2 yrs. old) and didn't find any that had a daughter named Emily (or Florence, as she was in 1870 census, but all over censuses said "Emily F"). If anyone can help or is connected to this line, please e-mail me at CatzNBearz71@aol.com. Thank you! :-)
