Harry C. Fay
The Vermont Journal, January 12, 1907
Captain Harry C. Fay died, Saturday afternoon, at the home on Bond street of his daughter, Mrs. William H. Thompson. Death resulted from a shock following a fall, a few days before, whereby he fractured his right hip. Captain Fay was born in Jonesville, Vt., Nov. 30, 1830, a son of Nathan and Mary Colby Fay. He learned the printer's trade at Montpelier, Vt., an on arriving at his majority established the Potsdam, N. Y., Courier and Freeman, now conducted by his nephews. He was a veteran of the civil war, going to the front from Potsdam, as captain of Co. H, 92nd N.Y. Vols., and serving to the close of the war. He was twice wounded at Cold Harbor, and again at "the crater” in front of Petersburg. Captain Fay came to Claremont from Vermont in 1872 to superintend the printing department of the Claremont Manufacturing co., since dissolved. In 1881, he bought the Eagle newspaper and printing business, and retained his connection with the same until his death, although not actively of late years, as he had associated with him, his son, Nathan W., and his son-in-law. W. H. Thompson. Besides his son, he is survived by his wife,* and daughter.
