Marriage Fact: source;Little Comptons Families vol. 1 pg. 265.

General Notes: Pardon Gray was a Colonel in the Tiverton, Rhode Island Militia. He was the commander of Captain Philip Cory my direct ancestor. He is also the brother to Philip Gray my 4th great grandfather.
From the Daughters of the American Revolution Lineage Book page 222
Pardon Gray was an officer in the militia and gave bountifully to the cause. He converted his residence into comissary headquarters, and the brick ovens where the bread was baked for the troops are still intact. He was a personal friend of Lafayette, who visited him at Tiverton, where he died, 1815, aged seventy eight. My understanding from talking with the Cory Society Genealogist is that Lafayette was a friend to a lot of the prominent families in Tiverton and Little Comptons. Evidentally he supplied them with needed goods during the Revolutionary War.
Pardon and his wife Mary are buried on the Dr. West place east of Main Road.

shores at Tiverton from the enemy, then in possession of the Island, in divers
tours and periods, in the aggregate for the full term of Eight months and that
after the evacuation of the Island the enemy _ to wit from said last date up to
the last of October 1782 he did further, additional and like duties in
____________ and detachments at Butts Hill and at Marstons point in the Regiment
or otherwise commanded by Col. Church and Bailey the Full term of one months
amounting in the whole to a period of nine months service as a private ___ ____,
rendered by the said David, on the revolutionary war, for which, under said last
mentioned acts she the said Nancy, as his late widow, claims a pension _ That
further, though she has much reason to believe that the said David rendered
other services to his country, on the seas, during the Revolutionary war,
particularly in a period of his abscence, about 1778, as she infers, from faint
recollection, as well as from the fragments of the within amended letter,
addressed to her, in his own hand writing, by her retained up to this date, as
the only documentary vestage in her possession of his activity, inter_____ and
suffering during the revolution. Yet, as of such, she has, nor knows of no
living or further documentary testimony; this she submits as a collateral
subject, having no further consideration but that of adding merit to those
services, which she deems amply sustained by the amased evidince.
She further declares under oath, that such is her want of recollection, that she
could not give the precise time of her marriage to the said David _ but that she
was married to him by the Rev Othaniel Campbell formerly pastor of the Cong.
Church in Tiverton on or about the latter part of 1777 or fore part of 1778.
That at the time when the ceremony of marriage was performed, he the Rev'd
Othnial was sick in bed & was far advanced in life and was feeble _ that there
were persons present in the room, but she recollects names only of two persons
who are long since dead _ that she had by him three children, Ellery, Sally and
Edward of whom the said Sally, now only survives _ that they continued to live
together as husband and wife from then up to the time of his decease , which
took place at sea on his passage home from the West Indies in the employ of Col.
J. Cook in a merchant vessel of which B. Borden was Master on or about the fall
of 1783 --- --- --- and that she remained his widow to the 14th of May 1786 -
Also the said Nancy further declares in order to obtain the benefits - of the
provisions made by one other act of Congress granting half pay and pensions to
certain widows approved July 7th 1838 - That she is now the widow of one other a
second and last husband Abner Durfee ..........
I William Cook of Tiverton in the County of Newport a Revolutionary pensioner
testifies and declares that he was well acquainted with David Gray the son of
Edward Gray he lived part of the time at Fogland Ferry (so called) untill the
British took possession of R. Island _ after and during the war, he resided in
the neighbourhood of said Fogland Ferry in Tiverton, he was a stout able bodied
man, courageous and enterprising - he was first husband of Nancy Corey, now
Nancy Durfee the widow of Abner Durfee - that when their marriage took place, he
could not precisely state, but that he thinks that the said David was married to
the said Nancy Corey, nee Nancy Durfee some time in the year 1777 some little
time previous to the birth of her first child Ellery Gray. That this
intermarriage, at said time, was currently reported and believed - that the said
David was something older than he ______ who is now about Eighty three years,
that the said David belonged to a company of Militia called the first company in
Tiverton, under the command of Capt. Isaac Cook Philip Corey Lieutenant and
Philip Manchester insign The company belonged to the regiment commanded by Col
John Cook on of about the first part of Decem'r in the year 1776 - when the
British took possesion of Rhode Island and the company above referred to was
called into service to guard and protect the shores of Tiverton from the enemy,
the said David Gray was in company acting as private and doing duties as a
soldier in standing guard. He well recollects, that soon after the British took
possession of the Island, a British ship came into the river, (name not
recollected) and anchored near or at Fogland Ferry so called - that there was a
considerable engagement had with her, in which a number were wounded, there was
a company of Artillery the company commanded by Cap. Cook and other companies
employed in it, that at this time he particularly recollects David Gray was then
doing duty in said company - that on or about the time of this company being
formed being the first called into service, it waas divided into two divisions
which divisions did duty in standing guard alternately one every other month -
that David Gray was in the division in which he _________ was that said David
Gray so continued acting in said division in standing guard and protecting the
shores, untill he _______ went into the fifteen months service, which was about
the first of June 1777. That up to this date the Depon't has no doubt, but that
the said David Gray had in the way of doing duty as referred to, rendered
service the full term of four months - that though the Depon't _________ about
the first of June: ___ that he did not leave untill some time after and that he
had full confidence in saying that his services continued up to the time that he
left, and he believes it was continued after - That after he Depon't had served
in the Continental service nine months from the time of enlistment he returned
and again acted in said company as a private sometime in the year '78 - as he
believes in March - that about the time the said David Gray was absent for a
time at sea, in what service wheather in private state or national Depon't could
not say - nor could he state at what time precisley he returned - but he has
reason to believe that he returned and was again serving in said company as
before mentioned on or about the first of the spring of the year 1779 or before
that he so continued said service till the British left the Island --- that up
to this date the Depon't believes the said David to have served inclusive as
before mentioned the full term of eight months. That after the British left the
Island he the said David with Depon't and others draughted or detached from said
company. That the several draughts or detachments __ _____ constituted in part
or in whole of a regiment commanded by Capt. Church first & Bailey Leiutenant
Col that this regiment was ordered upon Rhode Island part of it was stationed at
Butts Hill (so called) and part at Brentons Point, that Depon't stayed at Butts
hill and that said David Gray went in the detachment stationed at Brentons point
that in this service he fully believes that the said Gray served one month, in
the guarding and protecting said point from the enemy. That he believes this to
have been some time in the year 1781.
Depon't further states that during the time of service at Tiverton they guarded
at the house of Nancy Almy & at Joseph Almys, that he could not say at what
house said Gray guarded at the time of said last service.

The child from this marriage was:

General Notes: Capt. Joseph Cory papers located at the New Bedford Whaling Museum, New Bedford, Massachusetts. I do have copies of the original papers.
9 May 1796; Pardnership agreement between Isaac Cory and his brother Philip Cory. (appears to be the handwriting of Isaac.)
2 May 1801; Receipt for $412 signed by Capt. Joseph Cory - for repairs to the ship Rhoda. (appears to have been written by Isaac)
10 Dec 1801; Sailing orders for Capt. Joseph Cory aboard the Schooner Rhoda bound for Point Peter, Guadaloop. (apparently written by Philip)
27 Feb 1802; Account Ledger for Capt. Joseph Cory, Household expenses including payments to a hospital June, 1802 and Aug 16, 1802. Appears to be the handwriting of Philip.
8 Nov 1803; Sale of one-eighth share of sloop Westport by Capt. Joseph Cory to Capt. Isaac Cory.
3 Nov 1804; Account of cargo sold by Capt. Joseph Cory
8 Mar 1805; Letter written by Capt. Joseph Cory from New York to Capt Isaac Cory in Westport.
2 Jul 1805; Invoice of the Sloop Westport.
19 Dec 1805; Cargo Manifest of the Sloop Westport from Richmond to Westport.
3 Feb 1807; Cargo Manifest of the Sloop Westport from Westport to Baltimore.
15 Mar 1807; Cargo sold in Baltimore, and purchased there on Mar 18, 1807.
30 Mar 1807; Receipt for cash paid by Capt. Joseph Cory for lime purchased.
The last three papers signed by Capt Joseph Cory apparently from his last trip. The Cory Papers list Capt Joseph as master of the Schooner Rhoda 1801, 1802, 1803 and of the Sloop Westport from 1804 to 1807, 1820 & 1821. I did not find any papers signed by Capt. Joseph Cory after 1807 so it is not possible to say whether he went back to sea in 1820 and 1821. Many of the papers from the Rhoda were in bad condition and did not have copies made. The Westport papers were in much better condition. It would appear that three captains rotated in taking out the Westport. Each would make three or four voyages a year.
