Emma Jane Gray is first found on a marriage record to Nathan O'Neal Glover son of Eli S. Glover and Susan K. Glover in Taylor County, Ga. in Jan. 10, 1879. Susan K. Glover was the sister to John Paschal Glover, Jr. and Elizabeth Ann Glover Fowler of Crawford County. On the 1880 census report she and Nathan are shown with their son George who was born December 1879. The lived in Taylor County, and Crawford County. They later moved to Barbour County, Al. They moved back and forth between Ga. and Alabama. The last move was after the death of a child during an epidemic. Nathan's mother died about 1857/1858 and his father Eli S.Glover was captured in Ft. Morgan during the Northern Aggression and shipped to New Orleans where he was placed on a ship and sent to New York and then sent by train to Elmira "Hellmira" New York. Where he died from being deliberately deprived of food and medical treatment by the hands of the war criminals that ran Hellmira.
After the death of Nathan's older brother Franklin P. Glover in 1891 Nathan moved his family to Fort Smith, Arkansas.
These were very exciting times in Ft. Smith. Oklahoma was still Indian territory and Nathan started a business supplying the Indian reservations. Nathan's son Eli C. Glover lived to be 98 years old 1881-1979 and told the stories of riding on the wagon and going to the Indian territory to take the loads of goods to the Indians. The Indian agent there was George Glover.
Nathan died in 1896 and Emma Jane died the following year in 1897 both are buried in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
I know very little about the Gray family. The first accounting I have for Emma is her marriage to Nathan O. Glover in Taylor County Georgia and the census report of 1880 in Panhandle district of Taylor County. The next record found is her death in Ft. Smith, Arkansas.
