Tom Gray and his wife, Lee Gray, were surprised at all the national attention that their family story has circulated. Through Ancestry.com, Tom and his half-brother, Walter McFarlane found out that they have a half-brother, Alan Robinson. McFarlane and Robinson have been good friends for many years while living on the island of Hawaii and didn't know they were related until the DNA test. Tom grew up with both brothers in Hawaii and is looking forward to having both brothers come to visit him. (Photo by Jerilee Bennett, The Gazette)
