Carl W. Gray Genealogies

Welcome to CarlWGray Genealogies.

I'm currently compiling the genealogies of families, military veterans and their extended families from my hometown of Clay City, Illinois.

I'm averaging 2-4 updates daily, so be sure to check the What's New, Branches, and Surnames features often.

About Me: I am a retired United States Army First Sergeant and a Viet Nam Veteran (1969-1970). I have also served on deployment to Germany (4 tours) and numerous other military installations throughout the United States.

Last but not least, I am a retired United States Army JROTC (Junior Reserves Officer Training Corps) High School Instructor for Denver Public Schools, Denver, Colorado.

My interests include Genealogy; World History; American Military History; Computer Technology; Web-site Design; Reading; and Research.

The information on my site includes my research, input from other researchers and family and relatives, and a compilation of all the above. I claim no personal credit for the overall product, only a desire for honesty and accuracy in our genealogical histories. Like all histories it contains happy times, sad times, tragedies, some idols, some "black sheep", and few "skeletons" in our closets.

I hope you enjoy the site and find something beneficial in you own research of Clay City, Illinois and the surrounding communities.

I am also a member of the Clay County Illinois Genealogical Society (Louisville, Illinois) and the Richland County Illinois Genealogical and Historical Society (Olney, Illinois)
