AMOS ALONZO FERRY
Amos Alonzo Ferrey, who had been in failing health for over a year, died at his late home on Bridge Street last Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock. He was confined to the bed several weeks last winter, suffering from a hernia, but was able to be about this summer and fall. His mental faculties were greatly impaired. A general breaking down with complications and army troubles was the cause of his death, which has been hourly expected.
A.A. Ferrey was born in the town of Johnson on Jan. 15, 1833, and was one of several children of Lorenzo and Anise (Wheelock) Ferrey. He married Esther L. Hunt of Benson Jan 1, 1856. To them were born John Charles Ferrey, who died in early manhood, Bertie, who died at the age of two years, and Mrs. G. H. Prior, of this place, who survives him. They lived at North Hyde Park 35 years, coming to Morrisville in May of 1903. Mrs. Ferrey died four years ago from the effects of paralysis.
Mr. Ferrey was a member of the Warner Post, GAR, having served in the Civil War in Co. E. 7th Vt. Vol. He was cared for during his recent sickness by C. M. Alexander and his grand-daughter, Miss Grace Prior, who had kept house for him the past six years. He leaves one daughter, Mrs. Prior, five grandchildren, one great-grand child, a brother, C. C. Ferrey, of Springfield, Mass. and other relatives. Mr. Ferrey was a highly respected citizen and although being in poor health much of the time since coming to Morrisville, had made a large number of friends who extend sympathy to the bereaved family.
Funeral services were held at the house Monday at 2 P.M., Rev. S. M. Wales officiating. The members of the GAR attended in a body. The remains were placed in the vault, and later will be buried in the family lot at North Hyde Park. Geo. W. Doty acted as director.
