Gray, TX is in Marion County in North East Texas- 16 miles from Jefferson. It borders Caddo Parish, LA. It was probably established around the 1920's and never had a post office. In 1938 it did have a 4 room school. Also in the area (18 miles northeast of Jefferson) was a community called Hartzo. They got the first post office in 1894 and had a population of 30 people in 1896. The community was probably named after Daniel Hartzo who was an original land holder in the Republic of Texas.
       He received his grant in 1838. I have come to believe that Daniel was a son of Paul & Julianna Hasselberger Hartzog. He was born around 1805 in Lincoln NC.If this is true, he would have been an Uncle to my GGgrandfather, Laben Hartzo(b.1823 Wilkes NC) who came to Marion County TX in 1860. (Laben being the eldest son of John Hartzog of who resided in Lincoln /Catawba Co NC. John was the eldest son of Paul & Julianna.)Both of these men dropped the "g" from Hartzog when they arrived in TX. The Hartzo and the Gray families married each other a few times. Some of the Hartzo's crossed the state line and set up house in Caddo LA, while others stayed in Gray, Marion Co. TX.
       The Hartzo Community had a school named Guy Hartzo School. In 1899 they had 17 pupils and one teacher. The Post Office closed in 1905. No records found on the community after the post office closed.
