Dent or Daviess

One reason I enjoy preparing applications for lineage societies (in this case the DAR) is because it motivates me to go through my family tree with a fine tooth comb and compare it with the source documents. I just caught another big mistake in my family tree. My great grandfather, Wallace Gale Gray, Sr., was born in Salem, Dent County, Missouri -- not in Salem township, Daviess County, Missouri. The mistake may just be a few letters, but it is a 300 mile blunder. Oops! ...Glad I caught it!
