DRAY, Aaron, James & Edward

I am doing genealogical research on Aaron Dray. I am a different Diane Dray than the one who has posted messages here previously. I have the following
information on Aaron:

Birth Date: October 12, 1832 or November 12, 1836 or Abt. 1839
Birth Place: Ross County, Ohio
Parents: James and Mary Elizabeth Dray
Wife: Eliza Vest
Children: Nancy, Ida, Charles, William, John, and two unidentified who died in

Most of this information was obtained from the original newspaper clipping of his
obituary. None has been confirmed from primary sources. I know nothing about
his parents other than names. I would love any further information anyone might
have on Aaron and his parents, including where I might be able to confirm my
info from primary sources, and whether or not Aaron is descended from Edward Dray of Revolutionary war fame. I would be willing to share my info (I have a pretty complete record of descendancy from Aaron's son Charles) and would love to hear from other Dray researchers. Thanks!

Diane Dray
