OBITUARY from INDIANIAN REPUBLICAN, WARSAW, dated July 18, 1889

"DEATH OF JOHN TERRY"

The long and severe illness of John Terry, who lived with his son, a
few miles southeast of this place, culminated in his death shortly after
midnight this morning, the 17th inst.  His sufferings have been not only
severe, but long-continued.  During the progress of the disease, however,
he has had the kindest attention, not only from his loving wife, but from
his son and family, as well.  Mr. Terry was about 75 years of age, and
has been a resident of this place and vicinity for about twenty-five
years - coming here at about the close of the war of the Rebellion.  He
was highly esteemed by all who knew him intimately, and leaves a son and
daughter, as well as his faithful companion through life, to mourn his
departure from among them.  If we mistake not, Mrs. Baril, of this place
is his eldest child, and Thomas G. Terry, his youngest.  We have no
particulars of his death or birthplace, or at what different points he
made his home previous to coming to this city, but presume that an
obituary notice will be furnished us for future publication.  We can only
add, therefore, that a kind hearted, well-respected old man has gone to
join the "great majority" again illustrating the fact that life is but a
fleeting shadow at best, and that soon - very soon, indeed - all of us
will have to obey the summons from which there is no escape.  His funeral
will take place from his late residence, 3 1/2 miles southeast of Warsaw,
on Thursday, July 18th, at 2 o'clock, p.m.

OBITUARY from WARSAW DAILY TIMES, dated July 19, 1889

years.  Himself and companion have lived together 55 years.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES, page 465

John Terry, of Wayne Township, was born in New Jersey, February 11,
1812.  His parents, Thomas and Hannah Terry, were also natives of New
Jersey, and of Welsh ancestry.  His paternal grandfather, Captain Thomas
Terry, was a Revolutionary soldier, and his father enlisted in the war of
1812, but the war terminated before he was called into actual service.
The following members of his father's family are living - John, Thomas,
Carmen, Nancy, Betsey, Hannah and Abigail.  February 22, 1834, he was
united in marriage with Harriet Runyon, born November 27, 1816, near
Seneca Lake, Seneca County, New York.  She was the daughter of Drake and
Rebecca (Ludlam) Runyon, natives of New Jersey.  The children born to
them are  - Thomas G. and Armina, wife of John J. Baril, of Warsaw,
Indiana.  After his marriage Mr. Terry removed to Wayne County, New York,
and resided there five years; thence to Ohio, where he lived sixteen
years; thence to La Salle County, Illinois, for about five years; thence
to Warsaw, Indiana; thence to Grundy County, Missouri, for a brief
period, and finally to this county in 1865, settling upon his present
farm in Wayne Township, where he has 120 acres of well-improved land.
Mr. Terry has served as justice of the peace for nine years, and belongs
to the Masonic Fraternity at Warsaw.  In his youth he received a fair
English education, and is noted for his great mathematical ability.  In
politics he is a Republican, and he and his wife are members of the
Baptist church at Warsaw.

T. G. Terry, son of the preceding, was born May 12, 1845, and was
educated in the common schools.  He has been twice married.  His first
wife was Anna Waldo, of Mendota, whom he married February 6, 1866. They
had one child - Mabel.  Mrs Terry died in June, 1881.  He married his
present wife in March, 1884.  November 1, 1861, he enlisted in Company A,
Fifty-seventh Illinois Infantry, and became attached to the Army of the
Tennessee.  He continued in this department over two years.  He fought at
Fort Henry, Fort Donelson, Shiloh, siege of Corinth, the battle of
Corinth, following and various others of minor importance.  He was
discharged from the Army of the Tennessee, for promotion as First
Lieutenant of Company A. Sixty-third United States Colored Infantry,
which became a part of the Army of the Mississippi.  He was with this
department over two years, and participated in numerous skirmishes and
minor engagements -- in an attack of guerrillas at Camp Holly Springs,
near Memphis, Ashwood Landing, in Louisiana and Davis Bend, Mississippi,
the latter place being the former home of the celebrated Confederate
chieftain, Jefferson Davis.  On the 4th of July, 1864, Mr. Terry danced
in the house of Mr. Davis.  This was considered an interesting incident
of the civil war.  He was honorably discharged January 9, 1866.  He then
spent a short time in Missouri, and returned to this county, where he has
since resided.  He is at present officiated as junior vice-commander of
Kosciusko Post, No. 114, G.A.R., at Warsaw.  In politics he affiliates
with the Republican party.
