Notes for HARRY H. GRAY:
_____________________________________________

On p. 5 of "Coye Hawpe's Beeman Cemetery Report", dated Jun 1974, is the following NOTE on Harry H. GRAY:

"On April 28, 1974, during an inspection of the cemetery, it was noticed by Bob Thompson and myself that the grave of Harry Gray has been opened and the remains removed. The stone lay (overturned) by the side of the excavation. This could be seen from outside the lot which is contained within a fence, the grave being just along the fence."
____________________________________________

An estimate of Harry's birthdate is made as being on a two-year interval at the end of all the other children's births. A. C. Morgan
