Re: Fray (UK One Name study)

In Reply to: Fray (UK One Name study) by Grace Beagley of 140

Looking for:
Edwin Fray, b. 1848 in Bolton, d. Unknown (Source is 1881 British Census I received from a relative on the Fallows side)
m. Margaret (Unknown last name)
Children of Edwin & Margaret:
James Fray, b. 1873 in Bolton, d. Unknown; m. Margaret Unknown
George Frederick Fray, b. 1875 in Bolton, d. 1948 in Deer Park,Washington USA (my grandfather) married Jane Fallows May 9, 1905 in Bolton.
Arthur Fray, b. 1878 in Bolton, d. Unknown in Kent, England, m. Unknown,
2nd m. Rose Unknown.

George and Jane Fray came to USA immediately following their marriage in 1905. I have info on all of their descendants.
Arthur Fray was Mayor of Kent, Rochester, England in late 1940's/early 1950's. I know he married twice. Had a daughter named Margaret who married (don't know husband's name); Margaret had a daughter named Avril born in 1948. He mentions sons in one letter dated 1950, but no names.

I also have photographs of Fray's in England from 1900's,many that I cannot identify. One is possibly Edwin Fray, though there are none here that can verify. Arthur Fray kept in touch with his brother George Fray, and with Jane Fray after George passed away in 1948. I have a copy of Arthur's obituary, but no date on it, and no information on who may have sent it. One letter from Arthur also suggests that James' wife, Margaret, was interested in Fray genealogy in 1950, but again I have no information on James and Margaret or their descendants.

Thanks for any help.
Jan (Fray) Edmonds
