Hartwell B. Cray Dies at the Age of 48
Hartwell B. Cray, husband of Mrs. Danise Morrell Cray, died Thursday at his home, 30 Columbia avenue, after a week's illness. He was 48 years of age and in addition to his wife is survived by his father, John Cray, of Hopewell, and two brothers, Andrew, of Stockton, and Raymond, of St. Louis, Mo.
The funeral was held Monday from the F. C. W. Rorer Funeral Home. The Rev. Goodwin B.

Interment was in the Old School Baptist Cemetery, under direction of F. C. W. Rorer.
The bearers were James Pittman, Herbert F. Rorer, G. Newell Holcombe, Thomas Mylott, Nicholas Bregenzer, Claude Dilts.
The deceased was a member of the Hopewell Fire Department and American Legion Post, No. 292, and had been engaged in contracting and hauling during recent years. He had a host of friends here and had been a resident of Hopewell for a number of years. Although in failing health for several months, his condition was not regarded as being at the immediate serious state and his death came as a distinct shock to his scores of companions who respected and held him in high esteem.
