Query: Ray

I’m helping my son-in-law’s family to research his father’s lines and have traced one of the Ray families to your county. We are trying to find more information on the Jones Daniel Ray family who were in Woods County in the 1860 census–Holly Spring Post Office. But then they apparently moved to Travis County where they are listed in the 1870 census.

Jones Daniel Ray b. 1825 North Carolina; married Sarah Robbins b. 1833 Alabama;
married Oct 1844 Coosa Co, AL
Jones Daniel Ray apparently died about 1861 in Texas–possibly Wood County??


1-William Riley Ray b. 1846 Coosa Co, AL md Leona—
2-Mary Angeline Ray b. 1851 prob. Wood Co.
3-Benjamin L. Ray b. 1853 prob. Wood Co. md Electa—
4-Martha Jane Ray b. 1856 prob. Wood Co. md John Stephens at age 14
5-Franklin or Frank Ray b. 1858 Wood Co ? md Lou—
6-Charity Clementine Ray b. 1859 Wood Co?
7-Margaret Ray b. 1864 Wood Co or Travis?

We are especially interested in what cemetery Ray family members might have been buried in.

Thanking you all for your help.
