Mrs. John T. Gray

Died at her home near Calmer, in Miller township, Arkansas, Sunday morning, Oct. 21, 1899 Mrs. Mary J. Gray, age about forty years.  Mrs. Gray was a Miss Clark, a niece of Dr. Clark, who formerly lived at Randall, Ark.  When young she professed religion and joined the Missionary Baptist church in which she has ever since lived a consistent, christian life.  Though troubles and trials and sins beset her path, she held out faithful to the end.  As she was merging into womanhood she married John T. Gray to whom she was a faithful and devoted wife.  She leaves a family of six or seven children and a husband whose sad bereavement we regret.
