  • Notes 
    • Wray 0008 - I have a letter in her hand writing that gives her husband's birth and death dates, also her birth date. She is buried in Midkiff Cemetary (Find-A-Grave Memorial # 96276340)in Mount Airy. I was a Pallbearer for this funeral.It was the day after a very bad snow storm so that they could not actually take her to the cemetary until at least later in the afternoon or even on a later date. The weather had cleared that day so I drove to Mount Airy from Columbia, S.C. to attend the funeral. The weather threatened to turn bad again the next day so I drove home right after the service in the funeral home.
