    • David -

      I forgot to mention. I will send the photos to you once I talk to Aunt Gayle, who is still living. Ill see what I have too. She has a picture of Victor in his dress military uniform. Victor and Howard were both born in Richmond. They never lived in Mt Airy. The family moved here after Ralph, my grandfather, was born. Great Grandfather Robert Marion Monroe Wray was buried at Riverview Cemetery originally but was moved to south Richmond, Maury Cemetery later. My grandfather Ralph had him moved. I have a picture of Ralph at the graveside of hs father in 1925 at Riverview. He was 15. My dad and the others that lived here are there too.The bulk of them lived in south Richmond and their descendants still do. I am the odd ball. :)

      Hope to hear back soon and will get those photos to you as soon as possible.

    Documents
    Wray, Robert - Military Records
    Wray, Robert - Military Records
    These are Robert Wray's Military records from the archive in Washington, DC. It includes several daily Muster Rolls and letters assigning him to special recruiting duty in Yorkville County. There is also a letter that Nancy sent to Robert's commanding officer requesting that he give Robert leave to come home and help her with the family and farm. She was having a hard time with sick children at the time.

    It is a very interesting set of documents and brings Robert much closer to us.
