Flowers left for Eli Terry
Eli Terry Sr.: SIr, you will be rememebered as an inventor and clockmaker in Connecticut. He received a United States patent for a shelf clock mechanism. You introduced mass production to the art of clockmaking, which made clocks affordable for the average American citizen. You occupies an important place in the beginnings of the development of interchangeable parts manufacturing and became one of the most accomplished mechanics in New England during the early part of the nineteenth century. thanks for your creative mind, you will be remembered today after 161 years, may you rest in peace!
