Judge Alfred N. Cherry, one of the best-known attorneys and jurists of Utah, died last night at Ocean Park, Cal., at the home of his daughter, Mrs. N. P. Brown, after a long illness.
Judge Cherry was 71 years of age and a native of Illinois. He came to Salt Lake in 1890 from Kansas and formed a law partnership with E. E. and R. B. Shepard under the firm name of Shepard, Cherry & Shepard , and with the exception of the four years that he served on the district bench was actively engaged in the practice of law here until five years ago, when he removed to Gunnison, opening a law office there. During the last year his health failed rapidly. About three months ago he suffered a slight apoplectic stroke, and it was in the hope of recovery that he went to Ocean Park and made his home with his daughter until the time of his death. Mrs. Cherry died about four years ago and is buried at Mt. Pleasant, Sanpete county.
Judge Cherry is survived by the following children; James W., an attorney of Mt. Pleasant, Howard, engaged in mining in Colorado; Ernest A., an electrician of Butte, Mont.; Marvin, manager of the Co-Operative Wagon and Machine Company, Montpelier, Idaho; Mrs. N. P. Brown, Ocean Park, Cal.; Mrs. A. J. Vorae, Salt Lake; Mrs. Frank J. Carmean, Washington, P.
Judge Cherry spent his boyhood days working on his father's farm in Illinois. He secured his early education in the log schoolhouses of that period. In 1965 he was married in Illinois to Miss Mary E. Banks, daughter of John Banks, a native of Kentucky and a member of one of the prominent families in that state. In his early manhood he went to Kansas, where he became a prominent lawyer and occupied a position on the bench. Upon his removal to Utah he built up a lucrative practice, which he maintained until elected to the bench of the Third judicial district, Salt Lake county, serving from 1897 to 1901.
