Obituary

LINCOLN---Carlos Ferris died Thursday at his son-in-laws, Nelson Cram, on West Hill, in the 83rd year of his age. He was born in Athens on October 1, 1829. His people moved to Ripton when he was 12 years old.

He married Sarah Elmira Stewert of Middlebury, and to them were born seven children, of whom three are still living; Mrs. Nelson Cram of this town, Horace Ferris of New Haven, and Henry Ferris of Burlington. His first wife died Jan. 21, 1885. In 1892 he married the widow of Ebenezer Hatch, who died 15 years ago.

Prayers were held at the house, and the funeral at the Methodist-Episcopal Church at 10: 30 Sunday, and the remains were taken to the Foote Cemetery in Middlebury for burial.
