EXCERPT FROM SON'S BIO:
History of Pottawatomie County [Iowa], 1907, Volume I, p 1130-1132
Henry A. Terry ... was a son of Otis and Cynthia (Ruggles) Terry, who were natives of Worcester, Massachusetts, and of Irish and Scotch descent. They were reared in the state of their nativity and were married in 1816. The father generally followed the occupation of farming and was engaged in the raising of garden vegetables. Removing to New York, he lived at several places in that state and in 1836 became a resident of Oakland county, Michigan. The following year he removed to Livingston county, Michigan, where he followed farming until 1845, when he went to Knox county, Illinois. Two years later he established his home in Decatur county, Iowa, and in 1847 came to Pottawattamie county. Here he lived until about [1850]... when he went to Utah, where he died at the very venerable age of ninety-three years. His wife died in Decatur county, Iowa, in 1847 at the age of fifty-three years. They were members of the Church of the Latter Day Saints.
