Obituary of Orlando Jackson Gray, Chickasha, Oklahoma.

Orlando Jackson Gray, better known as "Uncle Jack" Gray, and a member of Joe Shelby Camp No. 375, U. C. V., of Chickasha, Okla, died at his home there on September 20, 1922. He was born in Kentucky, August 8, 1844; enlisted for the Confederacy in April 1862, in Coffman County, Texas., and was assigned to Company E, 20th Texas Cavalry, and served until the end, surrendering at Houston, Tex., in April, 1865.

Returning to his home after the war, he was married to Miss Adeline Cannon in December, 1870, and to them were born five sons and three daughters, six of them surviving him. "Uncle Jack" removed to Chickasha in 1894, and made that his permanent home. He was laid to rest in Rose Hill Cemetery at Chickasha by his comrades of the Camp.

(J. S. Downs, Adjutant.)
