Unfortunately, that site has been down due to technical difficulties. The biography is for SAMUEL DRAY, b. Sept 28, 1864, in Hancock Co., Ohio, son of THOMAS and MARY (HAMILTON) DRAY, natives of Ohio. They reared a family of 9 children, of whom Samuel was the third. The family came to harrison Co., Iowa, in 1871 and located near Missouri Valley, Iowa, where they followed farming and where they spent the remainder of their lives. The Dray family is principally of Irish descent, although some of their ancestors have been of other nationalities. (per the bio) Samuel Dray left home, along with his brother, at age 21 years. They "batched" together and operated a farm for three years; Samuel married on April 23, 1898, to Hettie Henry, daughter of John and Elizabeth (Timmey) Henry. Samuel and Hettie had six children, four living at the time the bio was written: Albert Louis, Roy E., Leta May, Florence E. I hope this is helpful to you..
