Hi Elisabeth,
I am a descendant of Robert Niven Gray, and like you I have an interest in Genealogy. I have the marriage of Robert Gray and Margaret Eleanora Rodgers and the birth of 2 children, one of which is John Bogle Gray. I also have found a testament and a list of assets and will lodged when Robert Gray died in 1848 in Scotland, but cannot find his parents or her parents or her death. However they were both deceased by 1855 when John Bogle married. Is this any help to you and can you help me further. I can send you a copy of the testament and will if you need them.
Regards Thelma.
