Our “Unusual First Names” category has been a little neglected….so, here’s an entry for a beautiful given name, found on the 1920 Federal Census, Pittsburgh, PA:
Curiously, no other records were found for Shenandoah V. Gray, who was born in Virginia, about 1870, and married to Charles D. Gray sometime before the 1920 census was taken. Possibly she went by her middle name, but even so, nothing was located, though a more exhaustive search could definitely be made.
