Bray, Milton

BRAY, Milton - [from Walnut Hill) Milton Bray was born in Tennessee, near Nashville, August 29, 1851. Moved to Benton county in 1884 where he made his home until his death at Brightwater March 15th, being 75 years, 6 months and 16 days old. He married Elizabeth Jones who passed to the beyond 16 years ago last Christmas. To this union was born 14 children, nine living and eight were present at his funeral. February 17, 1918 he married the second time to Mrs. Sarah Cooper with whom he spent his last days in retirement in the village of Brightwater. Bro. Bray was converted 22 years ago in a revival meeting held by Rev. Armstrong. He united with the Methodist church and was an ornament to the church and the community in which he lived. He resided for 22 years on a farm 2 1/2 miles from his blacksmith shop in Brightwater and walked to and from his work each work day in the week, covering a distance of many more miles than would encircle the great earth that furnished his home. Later, moving to his work he completed 32 years work as village blacksmith. His jovial laugh and ringing hammer has put new energy and hopefulness into many a passer by. While he worked for and dealt with many people he was not known to have trouble with neighbor or patron. The passing of Bro. Bray marks the passing of one of Benton county's great men from a standpoint of morals, truthfulness and Christianity. He was an Odd Fellow of high degree. The sympathy of all the country goes out to the family, especially to the aged widow who is left entirely alone. After short talks by George Williams, Rev. Sturdy and his pastor, Rev. Bishop, the I.O.O.F. laid the body to rest beside his first companion in the Liberty burying ground.
