Source (n.b., Washington Co. was formed from Tyrrell Co. in 1799):

1.  Tyrrell County, North Carolina, Marriage Bonds (courtesy of Bill Gray):
Deborah Blount married Henry Gray Jan. 4, 1760
Ellen Gray married John Williams Dec. 25, 1793
Frederick Gray married Elizabeth Rodent May 20, 1798

2.  1790 Census Images (online at Ancestry.com; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen).  The list is alphabetical, so no neighborhood reconstruction is possible.
1790 NC Tyrrell [now Washington] Co. p. 376 Gray Henry 3-0-5-0-0
These data indicate:
Gender and Type Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
3 free white males 16 or over in or bef. 1774 = Henry
= Frederick
= John
5 free white females all ages in or bef. 1790 = Deborah
= Ann
= Ellen
= Daughter A
= Daughter B
Also on list:  Henry's brother, Godfrey GRAY.

3.  Census Index:  U.S. Selected Counties, 1800 (Broderbund CD-312).  Please see my WARNING regarding use of this database (the numerical data have the genders switched).
1800 Gray, Henry NC Washington Co. p. 704 00110-0000100
These data should read:
00001-00110-00
which indicate:
No. & Sex  Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 45 or over in or bef. 1755 = Henry (b. bef. 1745) 
1 female 16-25 1774-1784 = Daughter B? (or Ann?)
1 female 26-44 1755-1774 = Deborah? (b. bef. 1750)
The older female may be Deborah, fibbing about her age, or an older, unmarried daughter or ?.  Middle-aged women often lied about their age (and still do).  It is a phenomenon of nature that men age ten years between censuses and women age seven.
