GRAY, Isaac Pusey, governor of Indiana, born in Chester County, Pennsylvania, 18 October, 1828. In 1836 he was clerk in a dry-goods store in New Madison, Ohio, and afterward became its proprietor. In 1855 he removed to Union City, Indiana, where he engaged in business for three years. At this time he began to practise law, which he had studied at an early age. He served in the civil war as colonel of the 4th Indiana cavalry, but was compelled to retire, owing to feeble health. Subsequently he recruited the 147th Indiana infantry. He was at first a Whig, and then a Republican, but since 1871 has acted with the Democratic party. In 1868 he was elected to the state senate, and served four years. He was a delegate to the Liberal Republican convention in 1872, and was elected lieutenant governor on the Democratic ticket in 1876 and governor in 1884.
