James Gray1

Father*William Gray2 b. c 1727, d. 12 Feb 1778
Mother*Hannah Foss2 b. bt 1727 - 1729, d. a 1778
     James was born at Barrington, Strafford, New Hampshire, circa 1747.2 He married Hannah Buzzell circa 1770 at perhaps, Barrington, Strafford, New Hampshire.3 James Gray lived in 1794 at Sheffield, Caledonia, Vermont.

JAMES GRAY, One of the first settlers of the town, was
born in Harrington, N. H. He married
Hannah Burrill of the same place, and
moved to this town with his family in the
spring of 1794. There being no bridge
across the river at Wheelock at the time,
they crossed upon the dam, and passed on to
their claim which was upon lot 36, now
owned by Mr. Holmes. Mrs. Gray was the
first white woman that ever came into this
town. The following year Mr. Gray moved,
and commenced anew upon the lot where
Isaac Pearl now resides. Here he lived
until a year before his death, when feeble in
health, and bowed down with hard labor
and the infirmities of age, he left to spend
the remainder of his life with his son George,
upon the place now owned by his grandson,
L. M. M. Gray, Esq., and here he continued
to reside until his death. His son Jonathan
also came the same year with his father.
To him belongs the honor of having felled
the first tree in town.
The hardships incident to early settlers
bore heavily upon Mr. Gray. At this time
there was no gristmill near, and he was
obliged to take his grain sometimes even to
Newbury to be ground, and often for the
want of a horse, he carried it upon his own
back. Yet with all his labor and hardships
he was healthy and vigorous, and lived to
the good old age of 85 years.4 He died on 24 February 1827 at Sheffield, Caledonia, Vermont.5

     Judith was born at Amesbury, Essex, Massachusetts, on 7 February 1703/4. I had two choices for this Judith's birthdate and parents: Samuel 7 Feb 1703, daughter of Samuel and Deliverence (Heath) Wathen; or 14 Mar 1702 (1703?), daughter of Thomas and Hannah (Annis) Wathen.

Samuel and Thomas were brothers.

What influenced my choice of Judith's parents, given no hard evidence either way, was the fact that Samuel's daughter named a daughter Deliverence after, no doubt, her mother Deliverence Heath..2 As of 13 June 1723,her married name was Dow.3
