Terry Family Monument

Terry Family Monument

This is the monument marking the grave sites of Thomas and Mary Terry. Thomas Terry was the owner of Terry's Mill, and was murdered in a notorious incident at the time of the Civil War (but not directly related to the war itself). Mary Terry was the mother of Sylvester Terry for whom the cemetery is named, and the great grandmother of 1920s and 30s New York Giants first baseman and manager Bill Terry.
