Yes. My records show the following:
Charles Dray was born 12 Dec. 1824 in Jefferson Co., OH (the 1880 census says 1823). On 7 Dec. 1848 in Georgetown, PA he married Sarah Elizabeth McCready who was born 2 Oct. 1834 in Jefferson Co., OH to Alex McCready (whose second wife was Katherine Dray) and his first wife, Mary Streets. They moved to Iowa in 1854 and later divorced. He was a "coal digger" and a member of the Mormon religion. Charles died on 3 March 1895 in Farmington, Van Buren Co., IA and Sarah died at Cincinnati, IA on 6 June 1917. She is buried in the Pleasant Hill Cem., They had at least nine children.
One of them was Thomas H. Dray who was born in 1853 in Ohio and married Sarah Dugan. They had a daughter named Jennie H. Dray who was born in 1897, and may have had more.
If you can add to this information, I would love to have.
If you need information on Charles' ancestry, I can provide that.
