He was favored with tender religious. instruction; professed conversion at the age of eighteen; received a thorough mental culture at Lincoln Academy and at Waterville College; began preaching in 1854, and in 1855 was admitted into the East Maine Conference, in which.
he served as health permitted until 1862, when he joined the 12th Maine Regiment as chaplain. Ill health obliged him to return home in, a few months, and he resumed his connection with the conference as a superannuate, which relation he sustained until his decease, February 21, 1868. Mr. Bray was an able minister, more zealous than strong in body. He was sympathetic and deeply earnest. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1868, page 142.
