I know Uncle Charles through stories from my mama and soties form my grandaprents when I was little. I also remember the Granite Monument that stood out in front of Post 14 Donalsonville comemorating all of the troopers that lost their lives in that accident. Proud to be related to Sgt Charles Gray. He was my second Uncle, brother to my grandmother. Paul Cross, Sugar Hill, Ga.
