The chapter was named after Captain Joshua Gray who was born in 1743, and was a prominent figure at the outbreak of the American Revolution. The official military record of Joshua Gray states that he was captain of a company of minutemen who marched April 20, 1775, in response to the alarm of April 19. Joshua Gray died on March 31, 1791, at the age of 47, and he is buried alongside his wife in the Ancient Cemetery in Yarmouth Port, Massachusetts.
