"Spring Creek, Feb 15 - William McCray was born in Crawford county upon April 26, 1842, and died on Sunday morning, Feb 8, 1914, at 8 o'clock, at his home in Lily Dale, NY. His death was caused by heart trouble, from which he suffered patiently for several years, it terminating into dropsical conditions. Mr McCray was a member of the GAR, having served as a soldier in the Civil war for three years in the Twelfth regiment of cavalry of company B. Deceased was a member of the Spring Creek Grange, also a member of the Herbert Bigelow's Vine Street Congregational church of Cincinnati, but was always interested in all that pertained to the betterment of life, socially, morally and spiritually. The greater part of his life was spent in Spring Creek, Pa, where still remain a host of friends who are grieved to learn of his death. Besides the many friends, he leaves to mourn his death, a sister, Mrs Mary Morton of Spring Creek, and four children, who are, Mrs Gertrude Seager of Olmstead Falls, Ohio; Mrs Isobel DeWitt of Philadelphia; Mrs Stella Taylor of Cleveland, and Rollo McCray of Waterford. The funeral services were held at the Spring Creek Congregational church, Tuesday, February 10 at 11 o'clock am. A Spiritualist speaker of Lily Dale, NY, delivered a beautiful address in poetry. Rev Kirtland, the pastor, assisted with prayer and singing. The pall bearers were all veterans of the Civil war and the interment was in Spring Creek cemetery."
