Gray - Lynch Family History Page



My genealogy work started with information from my mother and a family tree that my sister made for a school project many years ago. The family tree was originally drawn on a long sheet of shelf paper, so when my mother provided me with a copy of the family tree, it was multiple sheets of 8.5" by 11" paper pasted together to cover the entire tree. I recently redid the Gray - Lynch Family Tree in Excel and have that provided that version here for review.

The author was a student of Oswego Catholic High School. The author acknowledges "Mrs. Ruth Ann Strong's private collection of family letters; news letters; pictures; medals; and collected information from past generations of Hort-Gray relations." Ruth Ann Strong was a descendent of David Gray and Clarissa Patchin.


Gray Family Tree c. 1916 - by E.T. Gray. There are two pages for the family tree, one for Grays and one for Beckwiths. Names without links to individual pages were unknown (or at least their name was unknown) before ET Gray's charts were found in December 2014. Future updates to the individual pages will include these individuals.
