8.  Goldene Fillers Burgner.  1983/92.  Washington County Tennessee Wills, 1777-1872.  Southern Historical Press, Greenville, SC.   Henry McCray (Sr.) is witness to the will of Samuel Bayles husband of his aunt, Mary Nodding on 5 Aug 1825 (p. 21).  He is named executor in the will of his father, Daniel McCray, dated 1 Mar 1819 (p. 23).

9.  Philip Roger McCray.  1993.  McCrays of America.  2nd ed.  Heritage Books, Bowie, MD.  Says Henry moved to Davidson [now Williamson] Co., TN, ca. 1795, then back to Washington Co., TN, by 1806, based on land transactions.  But Henry was married in 1796 in Washington Co., TN.  These early pioneers did a lot of speculating in land, land they didn't necessarily live on.  I'd prefer to deduce Henry's whereabouts based on the tax rolls.
