HENRY S. TERRY, farmer, P.O. Crescent City, was the first white child born in Crescent Township. His parents, H. A. and Rachel T. (SININE) TERRY, were among the first settlers of the township, and a more complete sketch of them will be found elsewhere in this work. Henry S. was born September 2, 1849, in the village of Crescent, and has spent most of his life in the township. He had the advantages of the public schools of his native village, and then spent some time at Notre Dame College of South Bend, Inc. January 2, 1870, he married Miss Matilda THOMPSON, a native of Knox Co., Mo., though her people had been residents of Crescent Township for many years prior to her marriage.
Starting in business for himself after his marriage, Mr. Terry now has a nicely improved farm about two miles north of Crescent City. Mr. and Mrs. Terry have one child, born January 2, 1879.
