THE HENRY BULLETIN, Fri., Sept. 11, 1925, p. 2, col. 3:
John W. Bray for several years a resident of Martinsville, died at his home on Tuesday morning very suddenly following an illness covering several months.
Some days ago it was learned his condition would necessitate an operation, and he was about to enter one of the local hospitals, when taken ill the morning.
His physician was called to give him temporary relief and his condition perhaps more serious than had been thought of, Mr. Bray expired five minutes after medical assistance was given him.
His death will be keenly deplored by all who knew him as an honest and industrious worker. For years he has been one of the best of workmen in the city.
He worked in many of the finer homes of the city, witnessing to his art as a painter and decorator.
His funeral took place from the Christian Church on Thursday afternoon.
Burial was in Oakwood Cemetery.
The deceased was born November 27th, 1879 in Mt. Airy, Surry County, N.C.
On August 10th, 1900, he was married to Bettie E. Quisenberry of Hillsville, Carroll County, Va.
To this union seven children were born, six of them dying in infancy.
He is survived by his widow and one daughter, Myrtle, also the following brothers and sisters: R. W. Bray of Cape Charles, Va., M. F. of Amelia Courthouse, Va., T. C. of Greensboro, N.C., Mrs. M. A. Cox of Marston, N.C., and Mrs. W. C. Arnette of Ocean View, Va.
John's daughter, Myrtle M. Bray, b.1909 in Henry County, Va. married Julian P. Hall on 29 Dec. 1929 in Henry County, Va. Julian was born in Pittsylvania County, Va. in 1904 to L.J. and Daisy Hall.
