David Gray (1838–1861)

Gray, David. A Scotch poet; born in Merkland, Dumbartonshire, Jan. 29, 1838; died there, Dec. 3, 1861. He was the son of a factory operative, and his education was obtained through many difficulties. ‘The Luggie,’ a poem of the didactic and descriptive order, published posthumously, displays an exquisite though ill-regulated genius.
