Re: Washington Gray
In Response To: Re: Washington Gray ()
It appears that the pension card posted by Vicky seems to indicate that Washington Gray was an invalid in 1892, and he may have died sometime after 1892 but before 1916 when Frances is a widow. The Washington Gray who died in 1864 is certainly different than the one who married Frances in 1864 in Natchez, Miss. and the Frances who is listed on the pension card.
Perhaps the Washington Gray who married in New Orleans is different (or it is the woman who Washington was forcibly separated from according to the marriage record); or, Washington Gray married Frances in New Orleans and recorded the marriage again in Mississippi with the Freedmen's Bureau.
I am confident the Frances and Washington Gray on the pension record that Vicky posted are the same as the couple on the Mississippi marriage record I posted.
