Mr. Terrell was one of the pioneer residents of this vicinity. With untiring labors he created a fine farm out of the wildwood, and here his interests centered for he was a man who loved his home and family most of all. He was always a kind husband and a loving father, who will be greatly missed not alone by his family and brothers and sisters, but by all who knew him. For the past eight years he has been a great sufferer, bearing at all times his trials with the utmost patience.
