Iven (or Ivan) Nelson Dray

I am researching my son's family. His name is Allen Dean Dray, born 1974 to Floyd Allan Dray and Rebecca Sue Ousley Dray. Allen's grandfather is Robert Nelson Dray born in 1915 and still living, but doesn't remember some details. Robert was married to Martha Fouts in the 1930's and had Shirley, Bobby (may be Robert, but he is not Jr.), Larry (Lawrence), Eddie(Edward) who died of a gun shot accident when he was about 16, Floyd Allan b. 1954, and Lloyd Dean b. 1955. Robert Nelson Dray's father was Iven (sp?) Dray and Robert thought his middle name was Nelson, just like his. His health was not good and he couldn't remember his mother's name. He had a younger brother named Lawrence who died in the 80's I think and he had several sisters; Gladys, Bea, Leona...is all I can remember. I am trying to find more information on Iven and the family before. The old family legend is that they descended from Sir Francis Drake and someone down the line changed the name to Dray (true or false?). Can someone help me, please?
