      David ?

      Asked Gayle about dates too. Russell was born in 1898, not 1899. I would use the bible for baby Robert birthday. ?

      David ?
      I looked at some genealogy information my father was working on back in 2002 before he passed. Here is what he had:
      Wray, Clyde Mack(b. September 29, 1892, d. August 1974)
      Wray, Earl Dean(b. November 27, 1895, d. February 1966)
      Wray, Russell C.(b. July 10, 1899, d. May 5, 1978)
      Wray, Luther L.(b. November 23, 1901, d. May 19, 1955)
      Wray, Robert B.(b. May 30, 1903, d. October 17, 1904) ? Howard?s son and grandson were named Robert
      Wray, Myrtle I.(b. August 18, 1905, d. ?) ? she was alive and the only survivor when my grandfather passed in 1993 and at the funeral
      Wray, Hazel Aileen(b. March 21, 1908, d. November 29, 1986)
      Wray, Ralph George(b. January 6, 1910, d. January 3, 1993)
      Wray, Howard Monroe(b. December 2, 1913, d. August 12, 1979)
      Wray, Victor Carlin(b. April 16, 1916, d. March 23, 1985)
      The picture I have at the reunion was 1968, it has the five surviving brothers. Clyde (your grandfather), Russell, Ralph, Howard and Victor. Evidently your grandfather Clyde and Earl stayed when their parents went to Richmond around 1912 being they were grown. Russell, Luther and Ralph, being they were children, and the girls went to Richmond. As mentioned before, Howard and Victor were born in Richmond. I haven?t had a chance to scan reunion photo yet but will send when I get a chance.
      Hope this helps,

      Mike
