John .. One of William Gray's daughters, Mary,married Joseph Cooper. They
lived in upper Bladen County, the part that is now the Gray's Creek Twp. of
Cumberland County. Mary's second husband was Samuel Butler, my ancestor.

I will send another document concerning the Gray family via a separate
email.

Hope this helps.
