Mabel Getty Gray
Posted by: Tina Neubauer (ID *****0212) Date: July 11, 2006 at 19:37:46
  of 357

Mabel Pauline Getty Gray was my Great-grandmother. She was born sometime around 1889 in Delaware and died in 1951 or 1952 in Cecil County Maryland (I think she lived in Elkton, MD). Her husband was Raymond Jerry Gray, Sr and they had several children (not sure exactly how many at this time); at least 2 daughters - Phoebe Elizabeth (my grandmother - m. William Thompson), and Mabel Pauline (m. Lincoln Jones), and 2 sons - Raymond Jerry, Jr (never married) and Paul. Family legend has it (a story that she often told my mother as a child) was that g-grandma was related to THE Getty family (as in J. Paul Getty), and when she married my g-grandfather (a farmer) she was "disowned". I cannot confirm any of this yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
