Gravestone inscription:

WMQ Vol XIV pg. 266:

Col. THOMAS BRAY (James1) lived. in New Kent county, and was dead before 1732 (Hening, Statutes, IV, pg. 310). He married Sarah Fenn, daughter of Samuel Fenn, of Middle Plantation, Williamsburg (who gave two acres for a church), and widow of Capt. Thomas Claiborne, of King William County (Va. Mag., I., pg. 317j QUARTERLY. IIl., pg.77). His wife, Sarah Bray, founded a scholarship at William and Mary College.

"Madam Sarah Bray departed. this life October 18, 1716" (St. Peter's Register, New Kent county).'

They appear to have left no issue.


NOTE: according to some sources, including COLONIAL FAMILIES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (1917), her maiden name was DANDRIDGE.
