I don't knowl if there is a connection between Mabra and Maybray, Mabray, Mabry, or any of the other variations. Does that sound a little perplexed? My brick wall is with Joseph Mabra. b. 1812 in Tenn. Moved to Rusk Co. ca. 1848. In Tenn. it was spelled Mabry. Once in Rusk it was spelled Maybury, once Mayberry. It seem that once he came to Dallas co., it became Mabra. Every desc. from then on of course has been Mabra. Don Collins thinks it might be that we are connected to F. Mayberry, a German immigrant. But nowhere in our heritage has any body ever said anything about German heritage, just that we are Scotch, or Scotch/Irish. This was just a shot in the dark. Hoping to link with yours because of the Rusk Co. connection. Thanks for your time.
