From Obituary: The Daily Enterprise - Marlboro, March 5, 1900
United In Life - They Were Not Separated In Death.
Such can be said of Mr. and Mrs. Hiram W. Fay who having lived a wedded life of 56 years together, died this Monday morning within six hours of each other.
A remarkable coincidence in connection with the death of this couple was the similarity of their ages. Mr. Fay was 76 years old, April 11, and his wife 76 years on Nov. 16.
In August 1862, he enlisted in the Ninth Mass. Battery. Two months later he was taken sick and was obliged to go to the hospital. The following April he was discharged after having rendered good service in the organization of the battery.
Mr. Fay could not be deterred from serving in the army when his country was in peril. Accordingly in 1864, he re-enlisted in the same battery with which he remained until June 1865, when he received an honorable discharge.
