Edward BRAY's wife and children were Quakers. Edward BRAY (who married Sarah MAYNARD), had a brother Henry, and a sister Elizabeth. Some have claimed that Edward's father was named Edward, while others say it was Henry. More evidence points to Edward's father being named Henry Bray "Gentleman Henry Bray". See Jacque Hoggard's post Re: Chatham and Surry Brays 
LOCATIONS: Prior to 1755 - Edward Bray lived in the area of Fairfax Monthly Meeting (at that time Fairfax (VA) MM also included Monocacy, MD) 1755-1770 - Edward & family appear in Orange County, North Carolina (Cane Creek MM) records 1770-1803 - Edward's family appears in Chatham County, North Carolina (Cane Creek MM) records 1780-1810 - Edward's family appears in Surry County, North Carolina (Deep Creek MM) records Edward Bray was not a Quaker, but his wife Sarah Maynard was. His children became devout Quakers. 
Death: 1793/1796 in , Surry, North Carolina, USA 
There have been a variety of dates given for their marriage: in 1742 in Fairfax Friends, Waterford, Fairfax County, Virginia, or as 27 Oct 1759 in North Carolina, also given as about 1750 in Virginia.
Sarah Maynard died on 15 March 1803 in Deep Creek, Chatham County, North Carolina. She was buried after 15 March 1803 in Deep Creek Cemetery, Chatham County, North Carolina. Sarah Maynard is described as half Indian. Her mother Susannah would have had to be a full-blooded Indian. It seems likely that Susannah was half Indian and that Sarah Maynard was 1/4 Indian.
