    Addie Vincent Gray was born in Milton township, Wisconsin, on what is known as the Rock River road, Sept. 23, 1853, and died at her home in Milton Junction, Wis., Nov. 23, 1924, in the seventy-second year of her age.
    She was the oldest of six children born to Orrin D. and Almira Taylor Vincent. Of the immediate family three are still living, Avery P. Vincent of Amity, Ore.; Elmer D. Vincent of Milton Junction, and Mrs. Daisy Shrader also of Milton Junction. One sister, Mrs. Hattie Bowers, and one brother Orlo, preceded her in death.
    She was married to Charles H. Gray, January 8, 1875. To them was born one son Clarence, who died in June, 1913. In September of the next year the husband died.
    For a few years after their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Gray lived in Milton Junction and Walworth after which they moved to Minnesota, where they lived some 34 years, first at Austin, then at Luverne where her son and husband died. Five years ago she returned to Milton Junction where she bought property and has since lived.
    In early youth she became a Christian, was baptized by the late Rev. James C. Rogers and united with the Rock River Seventh Day Baptist church of which she remained a member until it was disbanded in 1901. While she was not a member of any other church, after her return to Milton Junction, she was a faithful attendant, when health would permit, at the services of the Milton Junction S. D. B. church, and was deeply interested in all its activities and was a member of the Ladies' Aid Society. She was also a member and the chaplain of the local Woman's Relief Corps.
    Besides the relatives already mentioned, Mrs. Gray leaves to mourn her departure, a large number of other relatives and a host of friends.
    Funeral services were held in the Milton Junction S. D. B. church on Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 26, and were conducted by the pastor, Rev. Erlo E. Sutton. The body was taken to Luverne, Minn., where it was laid to rest beside her loved ones.
