After the Second Stuart Rebellion of 1745 and defeat of the Highland Clans at Culloden Moor in 1746, five Ray brothers, Archibald, Duncan, Donald, Gilbert, and John were exiled to North Carolina. Their families were left behind and most of them came over later on. These brothers were the sons of John and Mary Ray and grandsons of Archibald Ray, CA 1640-1710 of the Isle of Skye, he being of the 25th generation of descent from Gille Brude, A.D. 925, a Pilot pirate who attacked Viking ships which had ravaged the Irish Coast and Scottish Isles. His headquarters was between the Isle of Islay and Jura. Gille Brude penetrated the Western Isles from Angus in Central Scotland, and in part his people formed the Island McDonald. "Sons of the Brown Stranger", with his descendents deriving the family name "Gilliereagh" from Gille Brude's (Gilbert's) activities. A sept of the Gilliereaghs in Argyle was distinguished by the name "Darrach". Rays are both "Gilliereagh" and "Darrachs" the family under two names. Gilbert, Donald (Daniel in North Carolina), Angus, Duncan, Archibald, and Neill are traditional given names in the family going back one thousand years. The Rays and Darrachs were incorporated in the McDonald Clan through the centuries and tended to be "agin the gov'ment" and were ready material for the Stuart or any other uprising. They were closely allied to the McNeill and MacAllister break-aways from the MacDonalds about the time Columbus discovered America. Gille Brude's idea of a good beverage 900 or 1000 years ago was of making mead from honey. It starts off with honey, water and a floting slice of bread, spread with yeast, a lightly bunged keg in a warm place, foaming around the bung-hole for several weeks, then a process of drawing it off into tightly stoppered jugs put in a cold place for three years and finally a foaming beverage that one drinks best lying on his back. It is said to be power stuff. THE RAY FAMILY GENEALOGY- THE FIVE RAY BROTHERS I. THE ARCHIBALD RAY LINEAGE (Incomplete) Archibald Ray (1700-1770), the oldest of the five brothers was, we think, one of the first three elders of Long Street Presbyterian Church. We do not know who he married or anything about his descendents. II. THE DUNCAN RAY LINEAGE (Incomplete) Duncan Ray (1704-1774) the second oldest of the five brothers, after arriving in this country occupied land at the Bluff near John Smith and help organize Old Bluff Presbyterian Church. We do not know who he married but sons John and then Christian Cameron. Very little is known of his descendents. Malcolm and Neill, date of births and deaths unknown, lived on Black River near Aversboro, N.C. There is no record of whom they married but each had a son who cannot be identified. Angus (1736-1815) settled in Robeson County, N.C., but there is no record of whom he married. The census of 1790 showed he had two sons and two daughters. Hugh (1734-1816) lived on Upper Little River at Clark's Bridge and he married Jane Baker. Most of his descendents live around Lillington N.C. and some at Graham, N.C. Duncan (1738-1822), settled in the Long Street section and married Margaret Smith. Smith, daughter of John Smith. Children were Malcolm, named for his uncle, one of the first elders of Long Street Presbyterian Church, Isabella, Sarah, Catherine, Mary and Ann of whom did not marry. Angus, who married Priscilla Ray of Randolph County, N.C. who had one daughter, Flora, who married a Buie and had two daughters, Margaret, who married Daniel Blue and had one son, Neill, who married Flora Blue. Children were Duncan, who married Margaret Hall and their children and grandchildren are living in the Galatia Church Community and Seventy-First section. Margaret, Ann and Daniel Blue never married. James Franklin, John Smith, Archibald and David were all either killed or died of wounds during the Civil War. Sarah, who married John C. McGougan had two children but it is not known where they are living. Mary Elizabeth married Dr. Alexander Monroe, had four children and some of her descendents are living in Peoria, Illinois. Neill L. married Martha Black in 1868, these two along with three children lie in the cemetery at Big Rockfish Presbyterian Church. Mary Sinclair, Ray Hall, Naomi Blue Ray Hall and Neill Black Ray. Most of the children of these three live in Lumberton, N.C. and Fayetteville, N.C. area.

THE GILBERT RAY LINEAGE (Incomplete, following genealogy dated April 16, 1943) Gilbert Ray (1706-1778) the fourth Ray brother, is buried in Long Street Presbyterian Church cemetery. We do not know who he married. His sons were Gilbert (1744-1815), who did not come to North Carolina. This Gilbert had a son, John, who came to North Carolina in 1818, and with his family left in 1830 for Canada and settled in Ontario in the section around Toronto and since then the family has scattered to all parts of Canada. One son, James, stayed in North Carolina, and lived near Galatia Presbyterian Church. John's great grandson, Louis Duncan Ray of Detroit, Michigan spent many years compiling this history. He died in Norfolk, Virginia. John, a second son of Gilbert the Exile, died in 1804, had one son John the Tailor of the Galatia Church section who was the grandfather of Flora Ann Ray Brady of Elizabethtown, N.C. the only surviving member of her family. Archibald, the third son, was the father of John who married Sarah McLean of Islay. They arrived in 1794 and bought their son Archibald who was born in 1792. This Archibald was the father of Gilbert Carmichael Ray of Galatia and Hope Mills, N.C. Gilbert Carmichael Ray married Nancy Powell of Hope Mills, N.C. and both are buried here and most of John G's children live in Rocky Mount, N.C. or Washington D.C. Archibald Gilbert lived in this community all of his life is buried here and some of his family are members here now. Elizabeth Ray Calhoun (Mrs. George) is buried in the Hope Mills cemetery and some of her children live in the Seventy-First section. Sarah Ann (Sally) did not marry and is buried at Galatia. Isabella Ray Melton is buried at Rocky Mount, N.C. and most of her children live there. Mary Kate Ray Culbreth is buried at Red Springs, N.C. and left two daughters who are members here. Neill G. Ray is living nearby and some of his family are members here. Malcolm Buie Ray, the youngest son is living in Ocala, Florida. 1 Gilbert, Longstreet, father of Islay born 2 John, Islay, Cumberland Co., N.C., ca. 1733-1804 (note daughters of John not of record) 3 Gilbert, McLendon's Creek, 1801, ca. 1776 (father of NC born) 4 John, 1804, 3 mi. east of Galatia Church 5 Flora Ann, 1842 (no data) 5 Matilda, 1844 (no data) 5 Gilbert (no data) 5 Malcolm, 1848 (no data) 3 John (the Tailor), Longstreet, 1780-1858 (father of NC born) 4 Gilbert (no data) 4 John (no data) 4 Margaret, unmarried, d. 1902 4 Daniel (no data) 4 Catherine, unmarried (no data) 4 Neil (the Deacon), Galatia area, 1826-1908 5 Margaret Isabella, unmarried 5 Sarah Catherine, unmarried 5 Mary Jane, unmarried 5 Flora Ann m.
