The deceased was born in York County, PA, (actually New York State) and in 1843 his parents moved to Clearfield township, this county. After the death of his parents, Mr. Convery remained on the farm for several years and removed to Butler to accept a position as a salesman for J.G. & W. Campbell Hardware. For 26 years he traveled through the county selling stores for the firm. In recent years, the infirmities of old age settled upon him and he spent his closing days of a busy life with his children. In the prime of his life, he was well known in every section of Butler County and always bore an excellent reputation. He was a member of the Catholic Church and two of his daughters are in convents. The remains were removed to Clearfield township and taken to the house which had been erected by his father in 1843, when the family came to this county.
