Wrays with hemophilia
Noble Wray lived in Dunkineely, Co Donegal. Death date 1911.
"Our" Wrays have lived in central Pennsylvania for generations. Prior to that we were in Ireland (Ulster plantation?) The farthest back I have found is John Wray married to Rebecca Phillip's. Would love to find others in this line and find out more.
