Telfer, Andrew, Jr. 1842-1926


Andrew Telfer Dies Sunday After Brief Illness--
Funeral Tomorrow.

Hartwick, Jan. 11---Many friends of Andrew Telfer, Sr., a native of New Lisbon, and for the whole of his long life of 84 years a resident of that township, died at a little past midnight Monday morning after brief illness at his home about three miles west of the village of Hartwick. Death is understood to have been from heart disease, and he had been in ill health for several weeks. The Funeral services will be held Wednesday at 1:30 p. m. at his late home. Rev. Albert Loucks officiating, and interment will be in the Hartwick cemetery beside his wife, who was Lucia Jackson, and who died about seven years ago.
Mr. Telfer, who was of Scotch descent, his parents coming in the early part of the last century to America, and settling in New Lisbon, is survived by one daughter, Mrs. William Bissell of Burlington, and two sons, James G. Telfer, residing at home, and Andrew A. Telfer, Jr., of Hartwick; also by three grandchildren, Harry Bissell of Burlington and Erwina M. and Marie B. Telfer of Hartwick, and by a sister and brother, Mrs. Amelia Telfer at Hartwick and John Telfer, New Lisbon.
Mr. Telfer, who was a son of Andrew and Lillie (Young) Telfer, who was by occupation a farmer, was a man of upright character and fine attainments, who was well-known in the township and community where he resided, and to the immediate family general sympathy will in its bereavement be extended.

Addendum:  In the obituary above he is listed as Sr.  There are 3 Andrew Telfers.  I'm going to label this one as  Andrew Jr. and his father as Sr. 1801-1891. And Andrew Jr's son Andrew 1882-1968 as the 3rd.  
  Andrew Jr. married 
Lucia Ann Jackson, daughter of James J. and Elizabeth Duroe Jackson on March 8, 1871 at West Burlington, Otsego County, NY.  It was a double wedding.  Andrew's sister Mary Telfer married Elizabeth's brother Charles Jackson.
