Notes for GEORGE WASHINGTON BRAY:

Calico Rock Progress - Apr 26, 1935 - Pioneer Citizen Dies Here at Age of 88

"Uncle George Bray, aged 88, one of the vicinity's oldest and most

highly respected citizens, passed away at his home her late last Monday

afternoon, April 22, after a brief illness from pneumonia. He became ill

Saturday and grew steadily worse until death.

"Uncle George" was one of the pioneer citizens of this county

practically all of his life having been spent in the vicinity of Wideman. He

was born in north Mississippi. A year or so after the close of the Civil War

he moved with his mother to the Wideman community, where he experienced the

hardships common throughout the country during those trying times. By sheer

perseverance and hard work he acquired a desirable farm and home site which

was to be his home for many years to come. During his more active years his

thrift and energy proved him to be one of the most resourceful farmers of

that section. After many years spent on the farm and having reached infirm

years, he moved to Calico Rock about four years ago.

"Uncle George" was a true type of honest and rugged citizenship; who

adhered strictly to the golden rule. He commanded the love and esteem of all

who were privileged to know him.

Deceased was the father of eighteen children by four marriages, his

last wife and thirteen children, besides a large number of grandchildren and

great-grandchildren surviving. The surviving children are: George and Edna

Bray, of Make Peace, Alberta, Canada; William Bray, Los Angeles, Calif.; Mrs

Clara Reynolds, Puente, Calif.; Mrs Mary Rice, Oroville, Wash.; Mrs Ellen

Pearson, Wideman; Mrs Allie Hammett, Calico Rock, Ark.; Herbert Bray, Calico

Rock, Ark.; Clercy Brockway, Bonner's Ferry, Idaho; Mrs Dora Aylor,

Batesville, Ark.; Mrs Myrtle Langston, Manford, Okla.; Mrs Rena Clark,

Borger, Texas and Lloyd Bray, Calico Rock.

Funeral services conducted by Rev. J. W. Johnston, pastor of the

Methodist Church, Mtn. View assisted by Rev. F. G. Villines of this place,

were held in the church at Wideman, Wednesday morning at 11 o'clock. Burial

was at Wideman cemetery, under Masonic honors, the lodge of Calico Rock

being in charge of services at the grave.
