  • Notes 
    • Emigrated to Utah in or before 1853. When sister, Jannett Russell Widdison emigrated she stated she was going to see her sister, Elizabeth Gray in Utah. Both were Mormon.

      John Gray was driven out of Utah because he was a Morrisite. His wife, very ill at the time, was dragged from the house on her mattress. As soon as she was able she joined her husband in Carson City, NV.
      1870 census: Alpine Co, California. Occupation: farmer. (also enumerated in Carson CIty, NV the same year)

      Buried: Sublett Cemetery, Cassia Co, Idaho.

      According to Bill Hamill "John Gray, who knew Elizabeth in Scotland, followed the same route to America arriving in New Orleans six months later on the ship Parthenon 13 May 1845. They may have been married not long after his arrival in St. Louis, Missouri."
