Catherine Asdell m Robert Gray ca 1826

Catherine Asdell, born 1799/1800 in Ohio married Robert L. Gray about 1826. They lived in Clarion County, PA. Many of their descendants still have Asdell as a middle name.

The traditional account of this family does not fit very well with the known facts. I have seen the Bible Catherine Asdell was said to have brought from England. A great granddaughter had salvaged it from the fire. Supposedly her parents brought her to America get her away from Robert Gray. Mr Gray was said to have been from Ireland. He turned Orangeman then followed her to this country. All records now show that Catherine was born in Ohio, while Robert Gray was born in the vicinity of Altoona, PA.
