James C. Ray 1821 MS -1895 TX


Looking for information regarding his parentage and siblings. Voter's Registration card states he was a resident of Louisiana for 12 years before coming to Texas. That would put birth 1821 Mississippi and by 1827 living in Louisiana prior to move to Texas in 1839. If you can help contribute any information on James C. Ray it would be appreciated. Thanks!
