States: Virginia: Fauquier
I recently ran across an 1815 marriage of Nancy Gray to Abraham Newman in Fauquier County, Virginia. When I googled these names it appears there was a scandal. Abraham accused Nancy of giving birth to a mulatto child and she fled to Ohio. Nancy was about the right age to have possibly been a sister to our Jesse Gray, who married Rhody Browne, daughter of Thaddeus Browne, whose parents are still unknown. Does anyone have any additional information? I am particularly interested in the Gray connection and why Nancy would have fled to Ohio. What became of the child?
