DR. KINGSLEY RAY one of the earlier Pickaway County physicians, was a native of the State of New York, being born in Monroe County on Oct. 20, 1797.  He inherited his predilection for medicine from his father, who was a physician of ability.  Dr. Ray was a graduate from the medical department of Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, in the class of 1821.  Until 1823, he practiced in his own county and then came to Ohio, locating in Franklin County, where he remained for 15 years, going from there to Delaware and eight yeas later, to Circleville.  Dr. Ray was among the first practitioners in Ohio to use quinine, receiving, for experimental purposes, one-eighth part of the first ounce of quinine which was ever brought to Columbus.
     On March 12, 1826, Dr. Ray was married to Mary Mason Lathrop, a young lady resident in his native State.  Dr. Ray retired from active practice about the time the war closed.  He died in 1887, his funeral services being held at St. Philip's Protestant Episcopal Church, of which for years he had been a communicant.
