Terry, Joseph (1819–1902)

By the death on Friday night last of Mr. Joseph Terry, at the age of 84, there passed away one of Campbelltown's oldest identities. Mr. Terry, although born in Sydney, was practically a native of Campbelltown, having arrived here when only one week old, and he has resided in the town ever since. He was twice married, his first wife having predeceased him by about 48 years and the second some 7 years. There was no issue from either marriage. Up to the death of his second wife Mr. Terry successfully earned on the occupation of a farmer, residing on the one farm tor 40 years. Since then he has enjoyed a well-earned rest amongst his different friends. It was at one of these (Mrs. Barker's, Queen-street) he died. Strange to say, he expressed a wish some time ago that he would like to die there, so his wish was fulfilled.

The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon in the Church of England Cemetery, and the large attendance gave ample testimony of the respect in which he was held. Rev. Mr. Taylor, who had been very attentive during Mr. Terry's illness, read the burial service, and the funeral arrangements were well carried put by Mr. N. Doyle. Wreaths were placed on the coffin by Mr. and Mrs. P. B. Terry, Parramatta (Mr. P. B. Terry, nephew, also attended the funeral) ; Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Terry, Rudd's Point, Hay; Mr. and Mrs. M'Iver and family, Sydney; Miss B. M'lver, "Albania," Campbelltown; Mr. and Mrs. J. M'Ewen, Campbelltown ; and Mrs. Parker and family, Campbelltown.
