I suggest going on familysearch.org

I typed in the name "Ichabod Gray" and there are about three pages

of that name. If you know other names in the family than this will
help you connect to the right person.

Best of wishes in your research.

What country are you in Ruby. Do you know any dates and names for his children or grandchildren? in order to work back. Give us something in the 1800s and let's see if we can work back.

Gee, when I think of Inchabod I think of Inchabod Crane and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, It terrified me as a child but I still wanted to hear the story again and again.

I can't find his parents either. I looked at the Buncombe County and the Transylvania web pages. The Buncombe County site said Nearly all useful genealogical county records up to about 1910 are in the North Carolina State Archives, 109 East Jones Street, Raleigh, NC. 27611. Counties where birth and deaths occurred kept a duplicate copy of the information sent to the state. After 1741, prior to marriage, one had the choice of publishing banns or buying a license which required posting of a bond. Surviving marriage bonds, are in the North Carolina State Archives. They contain the names of the bride and groom, bondsman and witness. ( doesn't say parents)
But the parish registers containing records of birth, death, marriages prior to 1820 have not survived. That's a shame.
Maybe there's a burial register in Transylvania. It might pay to email them.
