We'll you've got to be my grandfather. I met you for the first time in 23 years last year. I didnt know you were doing genealogy research? I am working on a website (HALLHISTORY.NET) to trace both HALL and MCCRAY lines. Hopefully I can help find more information by posting more specific info on my site when it comes up. I hope I get to see you again.. You can email me at My mom says she plans on going back to Ohio this year...
