From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ossian Ray (December 13, 1835 – January 28, 1892) was a United States Representative from New Hampshire.


Early years

Ray was born in Hinesburg, Vermont and moved to Irasburg, Vermont in early childhood. He attended the public schools and an academy in nearby Derby. He studied law in Irasburg and in Lancaster, New Hampshire, where he moved in 1854. Mr. Ray was admitted to the bar in 1857 and practiced in Essex and Coos counties.


Ray was the solicitor for Coos County, New Hampshire from 1862 to 1872. He twice served as a member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives in 1868 and, again, in 1869. He was a delegate to the Republican National Convention in 1872. For a short time, Ray was a United States attorney for the district of New Hampshire from February 22, 1879, to December 23, 1880, when he resigned. He was elected as a Republican to the Forty-sixth Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Evarts W. Farr and was re-elected to the Forty-seventh and Forty-eighth Congresses, serving from January 8, 1881, to March 3, 1885. He did not seek renomination in 1884.


Ossian Ray died in Lancaster, New Hampshire in 1892 and was buried in the Summer Street Cemetery.
