From the Boonville Herald and Adirondack Tourist, March 2, 1905:

"EDWIN M. SPERRY DEAD-A WELL KNOWN AND PROMINENT RESIDENT OF BOONVILLE, Another Veteran of the Civil War, Summoned to Answer the Final Call-He was one of Boonville's Best Known Citizens-Funeral Monday...

After an illness of several weeks Edwin M. Sperry passed away at his home on Edwin Street Friday evening. For several years Mr. Sperry has not been in the best of health and a severe fall a few weeks ago caused him injury that hastened his death. Mr. Sperry was a native of Boonville and was born in 1835. The most of his life has been spent in Boonville. He lived for a few years in Oswego County. He was engaged for many years at farming east of the village and always took an active interest in public affairs, seekling that which was best for the community in which he lived. He was an ardent Republican but never sought office. For one term he held the position of excise commissioner. When the life of the Union was at stake he enlisted from Oswego county in the 147th Regiment as lieutenant of Co. C and had an honorable career as an officer...In 1862 he married Miss Harriet E. Rich, who survives with two sons, Clarence R. and Ray D. Sperry and one daughter, Miss Lulu Sperry, all of Boonville. The funeral was held from his late residence Monday. Rev. T. F. W. Cady, chaplain of Post Wheelock, ex-Commander Covenhoven, Comrades Bridgman, Burlingame, C____, and Fox conducted the ritualistic ceremonies of the Post. There were many handsome floral offerings. Among those present were J. A. Higby and wife of Big Moose, William Glenn and wife, D. F. Sperry, Will Sperry and Benjamin Sperry of Old Forge."
