Jamie was raised on her family’s ranch outside of Brady, TX, along the San Saba River. Charles T. Gray was her great grandfather and the only son of Charles Patton Gray, who purchased the first piece of the family ranch in McCullough County after leaving his relatives in San Saba County.
T, or ‘Papa T’, as many of his grandchildren called him, had two daughters named Charlene and Patsy Gray. Patsy married David Swaney Quinn and had three boys named David T, John, and James (Jim) Quinn. Jamie’s father, John Quinn, and mother, Elaine, still ranch the same land Charles P Gray purchased back in 1897 for $2.23 an acre.
Jamie has one younger brother named David Ross Quinn who works in the oil and gas industry and resides with his wife, Beth, and children, Peyton, Micah and Camp in Houston, TX.
JT was raised on his family’s ranch 10 miles north of McLean, TX, on the North Fork of the Red River.
JT’s great, great grandfather, JS Morse, came to Texas from Arkansas to work on the XIT Ranch in the late 1800’s. When he rode through Gray County, he fell in love with the river bottoms of the area. Eventually, he saved up enough money to start purchasing parcels of land all along the Red River until he had enough to land to make a living and quit his day job.
JS had a son, Samuel Bogan Morse, who was killed in World War II, and one daughter named Minnie Morse who married John C. Haynes. They had two sons named Samuel Albert and John Morse Haynes.
As a young boy, JT was fortunate enough to work alongside his great grandfather (John C.), grandfather (Samuel Albert aka Sammy), and father (Thacker Haynes) on the family ranch. JT’s father and mother, Thacker and Sharon Haynes, still live on the family ranch north of McLean.
