James  Gray

Born: 1782-1859 Mar 6th       Bangor Northern Ireland

Occupation: Merchant, Mason

Married to Sarah Unk. (1778- 1834  Feb 10th).  Bought the original family plot at Bangor Abbey. Referenced as Grays of Gray's-Hill.  Possibly son of James Gray (died 1792).

James Gray was Grand Master of the Bangor Freemasons, as well as being secretary for a number of years.  I have cross-referenced the signatures from an 1837 letter written by James Gray to his son Hugh Gray in New York, with the signatures on the Freemasons letters when James Gray was Secretary.
