Gracie Raymond is the third child of Captain Levis and Grace Raymond. Her mother died when she was young, and she and her sister Lulu were sent to live with 'Aunt Beulah'.
When Gracie was about 6, her father remarried Violet Travilla, and Gracie, Lulu, and their brother Max came to live at Ion with the Travillas.
A few years later, Levis retired from the navy, and brought his family to Woodburn, a house nearby.
When Gracie grew up, she married Violet's brother, Harold Travilla.
Gracie is shown to have a very sweet and gentle disposition, although she is often prone to illness.
