ChartsThelma L. Gray Pedigree Chart
     Sarah was born at Barrington, Strafford, New Hampshire, circa 1757. Although several online sources state that her surname was Davis, daughter of Amos Davis and Hannah Dow of Haverhill, MA, there is no birth record for this Sarah in the Haverhill V.R.

I have serious doubts about this line as proposed by those online sources and here's why:

There were only three children born of Amos Davis and Hannah Dow: Judith, Sadah (who could have been misread as Sarah) and Hannah. Of the three, only Judith survived childhood.

I could not find any records of any marriage between Joseph Gray and Sarah Davis. Indeed, the only evidence I could find of any marriage for Joseph Gray was an IGI entry for a 1778 marriage at Barrington, Strafford County, NH, between Joseph and Sarah Gray.

There was a Nathaniel Gray, who married Elizabeth Miles In Sheffield but I can find no published birth record, except for the LDS IGI.

A birth date between 1727 and 1729 is more likely, given the possible date of her marriage to William Gray.

I have assumed, that she was born after her parents' marriage, but before the birth of Zachariah..1,2 She married William Gray circa 1746 at perhaps, Barrington, Strafford, New Hampshire.4 As of circa 1747,her married name was Gray.1 Hannah Foss died after 1778 at probably, New Hampshire.1

     James was born at Berwick, York, Maine, circa 1691. None of these claims in the IGI files are substantiated, so we have to view them with a grain of salt.

According to the Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and NH, this James, who was a mason and bricklayer, has no known connection with any Gray family in the area. It claims that he was a possible son of John of Oyster River or a William. Aside from the son whom he named George, there doesn't seem to be a connection to any Scottish Gray prisoner of war from the Unity. .3,1 He married Tamsin Hillary circa 1715 at perhaps, Portsmouth, Rockingham, New Hampshire, Maine/NH Dict. and Strafford County Marriages only give her first name, Noel gives her surname.
