Pueblo County, Colorado
Dr. George E. Gray
Contributed by Jean Griesan.
George E. Gray, M. D., has engaged in continuous practice in Pueblo ever since he arrived in this city, September 15, 1881. As a physician he has met with success in his practice, all of which may be attributed to his thorough professional knowledge, and his energy and industry, backed by a good share of sound common sense. While he has made no specialty among the departments of professional practice, yet probably he has been most successful in the treatment of diseases of women and children, in which he has a reputation for skill and thorough knowledge.
Born April 15, 1852, in Pembroke, Genesee County, N.Y., Dr. Gray was quite young when his parents removed to Batavia, in the same county. There he was educated in common schools. As soon as old enough to be granted a teacher's certificate, he began to teach school, and this occupation he followed, in different parts of Genesee County, for about nine years. Meantime he read medicine during the vacation months and evenings, studying under Dr. John F. Baker for four years. In 1877 he entered the homeopathic department of the University of Michigan, from which he graduated July 1, 1880. For a few months he engaged in practice at Tecumseh, Mich., and from there removed to Colorado, settling in Pueblo.
Politically Dr. Gray has always voted the Republican ticket. He served as county physician in 1884, 1891 and 1892, and for two years was city physician of Pueblo. Fraternally he is connected with the Woodmen of the World, Knights of Pythias and Ancient Order of United Workmen. While he is not identified with any church, he attends the Roman Catholic Church, of which his wife is a member. He married, November 27, 1890, Miss Mary McCarty, of Conception, Mo. They have one son, Donald.
