I am related to Isaac Harlan and John Gray
I am working on the documentation for Isaac Harlan.
I finally found the documentation on the DAR in regards to the daughters of David Gray Fickes applying for membership to the DAR.
The enclosed biographical sketch in the History of Belmont and Jefferson County is 98% accurate. The only discrepancy was the date of death for David Gray Sr. listed as 1866 when it was 1849. I can see where whoever wrote the biographical sketch may have gotten the date of death for a David Gray who died in 1866 in Wheeling.
David Gray, Jr died in 1859.
