History of Davis co., Iowa - 1882
WRAY, T. J., lives on section 6, postoffice Stiles; was born in Giles county, Tenn., October 18, 1827. When he was four years old, his father moved to Adams county, Ills., where he lived five years, then came to Van Buren county, Iowa, where they lived about nine years. In the spring of 1845, he came to Wyacondah township, and in the spring of 1852, he went to California, being five months on the way. After mining three years, he returned and purchased his present farm, and moved on it in 1857. He was married to Miss Rebecca Rader of this county. Eight children have been born to them, six now living: Effie Jane, Emma A., Ida May, Clara Francis, Mary Elizabeth, J. Wm., and two deceased, Geo. B. and Minnie. Mr. Wray has a good farm of 183 acres, a good house, barn and orchard. He was raised a farmer and educated in the common schools. He is a member of Masonic Lodge No. 217 and of the M. E. Church.
