"Some information about the gasoline engines he invented may be found in American Gas Engines Since 1872 by C H Wendel, page 63. It also alludes to a book about his life called Internal Fire by C Lyle Cummins, 1976, and an article in Engineering in 1892 in London. Brayton Petroleum Engine Co was in Boston, Mass. Pennyslvania Ready Motor Co, of Philadelphia, apparently built some of his engines."

      !OCCUPATION: "George Bailey Brayton was an inventor of engines. He constructed a number of different patterns of these engines, some of which he put into small boats or launches; they were the primitive naphtha launches now in general use. Probably the most highly finished engine he ever built was sent to the Centennial at Philadelphia, afterwards it ran the shop on Potter Street, Providence, R. I., and later it was sent to Sayles' Bleachery; he invented an eyelet and rivet rhachine., The patents of these machines were probably the most remunerative of any he ever obtained, netting him nearly fifty thousand dollars. He went to England on business in Oct., 1892, and while there died; his body was brought home in 1893. His home was Boston; his family still reside there."
