Has anyone heard of Ray's Ferry? Apparently it was operated by Reuben Ray and family across Bayou Boeuf between 1815 and 1820.

Reuben RAY received confirmation of his land Claim in 1812.
Claim No. 570, containing roughly 640 American acres, being in Spanish measure, 20 arpents fronting on Bayou Boeuf by 40 arpents the usual depth, bounded below by land belonging to the Heirs of Peter McDaniel and vacant lands. This is where he was residing when the 1820 U. S. Census was taken for Avoyelles Parish, La.

Hello Ryea:

Thanks for answering my inquiry on Ray's Ferry. I have also been searching for quite some time for archived documents relating to Ray's Ferry in Avoyelles Parish. So far I have found nothing. I am interested in what patent you may have dated 1900.

Like you, my great, great grandfather was Reuben Ray. My Great Grandfather was Adam Ray, brother of George Washington Ray.

I have various documents relating to Reuben Ray and his land purchases. I would be glad to share them with you .
