James Alexander Dallas GRAY 1866-1899


Hi All,

James Alexander Dallas GRAY was my great grandfather and was born in 1866 in Edinburgh. I've always wondered where his middle name of Dallas came from.

None of his siblings have this as part of their name and, as I've worked on the family, I haven't found anyone with that name as a surname. He never gave any of his children that name either. There's just this one occurrence.

Maybe they just liked it - but I'd really like to find a better explanation :-)
