Death of Rev. D.C. Faris Long Time Pastor of Presbyterian Church.
Rev. David C. Faris, whose funeral Friday was largely attended, had the distinction of being for many years the pastor of one of the oldest Presbyterian churches in New England, the Walter Harvey church in Barnet Center. He was ordained and installed as pastor here June 25, 1873, and ministered faithfully to this parish until failing health a few years ago made it necessary for him to give up active work.
Mr. Faris was a native of Bloomington, Indiana, where he was born in 1844. He was the son of Rev. James and Nancy Smith Faris. He graduated in 1853 from The Indiana State University. He taught a year in the freedman's school at Natchez, Miss., after which he attended the Reformed Presbyterian Seminary at Allepay, Pa., for four seasons, engaging in missionary work and pulpit supply until he came to Vermont. Nov. 15. 1870, he married Miss Mary A. Russell of Round Pararie, Minn. He made himself a strong factor in the life of the local church and he will be greatly missed by a wide circle of friends and acquaintances.
