Gray is at the intersection of State Highway 49 and Farm Road 727, sixteen miles east of Jefferson in eastern Marion County. In 1938 the community had a four-room schoolhouse that accommodated forty-five elementary school students and two teachers. The school was consolidated with the Jefferson schools by 1955, and in 1962 Gray had a church and scattered dwellings. In 1983 there were several businesses on the highway in the area of the community.
