  • Lisa:

    In case you do not have the 1901 and 1911 census records for the family, I listed them below. The 1911 census indicates that they had 3 living children as of 1911. I looked for a death index record for Michael with no success. I did find a probable death index record for Mary in 1914.

  • Hi Lisa - I've been searching for my Gray ancestors for years.  We may have a connection.  Here's my info:  1) Bridget Gray (b. ca 1818 in Sligo, probably in Dernaskeagh, Toomour) married 1st ___ McGlynn.  She was widowed and then married Peter McGovern ca 1850-1852, who was also a widow.  2)  Peter and Bridget "Biddy" Gray McGovern lived in Corhuber, Ballymote, Emlaghfad after marriage.  3)  Bridget was very likely a sister to Denis Gray of Cluid, Ballymote and James and Michael Gray, probably of Dernaskeagh.  She was also related to Samuel Gray, who married Margaret O'Connor in Keash in 1918.  Do you think there's any possible connection?  Larry O'Keefe (
