Gray, Albert S. (Nov. 1844 - 30 Sept. 1901)

Albert S. Gray died at his home in Marshfield, Wisconsin, on Monday, Sept. 30, from an apoplectic stroke, and was buried on Wednesday of last week. Mr. Gray and his family were among the earliest settlers of the town of Colby and for several years resided in this city and were among the most respected of our citizens. About ten years ago he removed with his family to Marshfield, but there are many of the old residents who remember them and will extend to the sorrowing widow and daughters a heartfelt sympathy. He was a brother of Justin Gray, of the town of Colby, Wisconsin, who, with his family, attended the funeral.

Albert Steven Gray married Salome Margaret Hurlburt 4 Oct 1875 in Colby, Clark Co., Wis.  She was born Mar 1858 in Essex, NY.
