1. William Grayson
The City of Grayson which is located in the northeastern part of Kentucky was named after Col. William Grayson. William Grayson's family owned a very large tract of land in Kentucky. The City of Grayson is now located on part of this land.
Col. William Grayson played a major role in forming the United States of American, but is not in our school's American history books. We don't know what William Grayson really looked like. We have seen two different pictures or drawings, but which picture is the right one? William Grayson wrote numerous letters, but the Library of Congress has not made a separate section for them.
