Again I was told by Matilda's granddaughter Susie Ryals that her mother Susie McCray, daughter of Matilda McCray spelled her name, 'McCray'. Hopefully one day something or someone will shed light on this for us.
The spelling of McCray in this manner is confirmed by John Franklin McCray's (son of Moses and Matilda McRae) children and grandchildren.
See how confusing it is.
We may never know how it is so often changed even before it was passed on to my ancestors, but I think it would make an interesting story.
