Irving E. Fay

North Adams Transcript (North Adams, MA)

28 Nov 1925

Irving E. Fay, aged civil war veteran, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. T.J. Shea of Ashland street late yesterday afternoon. His health had been failing for some time past and his death was not unexpected.

Born in Richmond, Vt., in 1846, Mr. Fay had been a resident of North Adams for the past 40 years, the last five of which he had spent at the home of his daughter. Throughout the civil war he served with the First Vermont Cavalry. He was a member of the C.D. Sanford post of the G.A.R. and was highly respected by all who knew him.

He leaves four daughters, Mrs. Fred Morey of Williamstown, Mrs. Henry Legale of Shelburne Falls, Mrs. Samuel M. Knight of Troy, N.Y., and Mrs. T.J. Shea of this city; a son, George Fay and nineteen grandchildren and three great grand children.

Funeral services will take place Sunday afternoon at 2 at his late home and will be conducted by members of the G.A.R. Interment will be in Hillside cemetery.
