Bray, Samuel

Bray, Samuel a Baptist minister, was born in Randolph County, N.C., April 6, 1806. He removed in 1838 to Perry County, Tennessee; professed faith in Christ in 1840; shortly afterwards moved to Henderson County, Tennessee, and resided near Mifflin. He was licensed in November 1850, and ordained in 1856. "His preaching was eminently practical in its character, attracting attention, not so much by the graces of oratory and the charms of eloquence as by his earnest manner and faithful enunciation of those truths which are the common heritage of the children of God." He died at his home in Henderson County, January 31, 1870. See Borum, Sketches of Tennessee Ministers, page 64. (J.C.S.)
