Terry, James 1853-1922 New Lisbon Obituary

Terry, James 1853-1922 New Lisbon, NY


Respected Resident of New Lisbon Dies on Tuesday.

New Lisbon, Nov. 28---James Terry, a well known and much respected resident of this township, died at the family home at 10 o'clock this morning after a lingering illness of tuberculosis. The funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday at his late home. Rev. J. C. Calhoun of the Untied Presbyterian church of Garrattsville will officiate and interment will be in the family plot in Hillington cemetery at Morris.
The deceased was a son of James and Louisa Terry and was born about 69 years ago in Pittsfield. His home, however, had for many years been in New Lisbon, of which he was a prominent and leading citizen. He was a member of the United Presbyterian church at Garrattsville and his entire life was evidence of the sincerity of this faith.
The surviving members of his family are his wife and daughter, Annie, who had faithfully cared for him in his last illness, and one sister, Mrs. Lenora Stanhouse of Oneonta. In their bereavement many friends will sorrow with the afflicted family.
