Birth: Jun. 11, 1792
Death: Sep. 7, 1872
Grafton
Jersey County
Illinois, USA

Source: History of Greene and Jersey Counties Illinois, 1880

Isaac Bray came to Jersey county in 1831, and located two miles northeast of Grafton, where he improved a farm. He was born in North Carolina, in 1792, and married to Rosanna White, who was born in the same state in 1822.

Isaac Bray died in this county, in 1872, and is buried in the Odd Fellows' cemetery, near Grafton. His wife survived until 1876, when she died, and was laid to rest beside her husband.(Note: The presence of the tombstone with this memorial and the absence of any record of their burial in Scenic Hill Cemetery, aka Odd Fellows' Cemetery, contradict this information.)

They were consistent members of the Baptist church. Isaac Bray was one of the earliest settlers of Jersey county, and assisted in laying out the town of Grafton.
