GRAY, Antigua & St. Croix, 1700s, 1800s

I would like to connect with anyone researching these families. I am trying to see if/how these Grays connect with one another.

Robert Gray, Gent., Antigua, at least as early as 1742

Thomas Gray of St. Croix, married Charlotte; he died in 1797.
Their daughter, Elisabeth Gray, b. 17 Feb 1797. She married James Finlay.
Charlotte Gray came into Philadelphia on the St. Croix Packet in 1804.
Miss C Gray came into Philadelphia also in 1806, traveling with Miss Totten, Miss Sinclare, and Miss Doute (the girls possibly were students at the Moravian School in Bethlehem, PA)
John Gray, St. Croix, was owner of Plantation Pearl, 1820.
Robert Gray, 26, came into NY from St. Croix in 1821.
Hester Gray, 23, female of Ireland, Thomas Gray, 32, of St. Thomas, and David Gray, 6, also of St. Thomas, came into New York from St. Croix in 1823.
Elizabeth Gray, age 12, came into New York in 1833.
Elizabeth Sinclair Gray married Geert Gyllich (Gullich) in 1844. :D

Also on St. Croix is my line:
Stephen Gray, b. ca. 1792, major in the military. He m. Mary Jane Faris 1819.
Their son, Thomas Anchestile (Anchestelle) Gray, b. 9 Nov 1828.
Stephen Gray died in 1830, when his son was not quite 2 years old. His widow, Mary Jane Faris Gray, married 2nd Peter Axel Dahl.
Thomas A. Gray, son of Stephen Gray and Mary Jane Faris Gray, was educated at Soro Academy in Denmark. He was raised in Christiansted by his step-father, Peter Axel Dahl. He married Mary Jane Woods in 1852.

Children of Thomas A. Gray and Mary Jane Woods Gray:
Florence Sinclair Gray. b. 1853. She graduated from Mansfield Normal College in PA in 1872.
Matilda Moore Gray, b. 1856. She also attended Mansfield.
Gertrude Gray, b. 1859
Elizabeth Woods Gray, b. 1863

There is also a Graae, Anch. who was a musketeer in St. Croix who died in 1818. I do not know if there is any relationship to the Gray family.

Any suggestions or connections welcome!
