  • Notes 
    • Ref: Clan Munro files - May, Frank Boone III
      - Johnson, Monroe
      - Williams, Irmalee - Benjamin Grayson family record

      Some references say William was born in Spottsylvania County, Virginia and died in Albemarle County, Virginia. Ref 4 suggests that he might have died 7 Dec 1790 in Frederick County, Virginia.

      He was buried in the family vault at their Belle Air estate.

      Colonel William Monroe Grayson was an attorney and was one of the first two senators from Virginia. His middle name is not certain.

      William's children received large tracts of land as a result of his service as a Colonel during the American Revolutionary War, when he served as aide-de-camp of George Washington. The Grayson grant was on the Little Sandy River at the site of Grayson, Kentucky (then in Greenup County, later in Carter County.)
