The funeral of Dr. Faris, who has been sick so long and who died Friday night, was held Sunday at the Christian church, Rev. Gilliand officiating. Dr. Faris was born in 1807. He became a member of the Christian church at the age of 16 and his faith never wavered. Throughout his long sickness, his greatest faith was his Bible and its promises cheered him to the last. He was for many years a physician in Niantic but owing to his old age, he had not practiced for a number of years. He was the father of 12 children, 6 of whom survive, all being present at his funeral. J.P. Faris of Niantic was a son of the deceased.

Herald Tuesday June 30, 1891
