In his profession, he was always careful and conscientious. If there was a doubt in his mind as to the final result of a proposed litigation, he invariably discouraged the bringing of suit - oftentimes to his own pecuniary loss. In morals it may be said, without flattery, that his life was above reproach. His honesty, none who knew him questioned. He indulged his fancy in leisure hours writing poems, both humorous and serious, but few of them ever appearing in print, or even known of outside of his family. He was a strong believer in the old-fashioned, orthodox religion, yet liberal toward those who did not agree with him on these subjects. The closing sentence of his will, made in 1875, is cherished by his family, and is typical of his character. It is: ‘I hope and believe that my children will cultivate kindly feelings toward each other; that they will be manly, just and true in all relations, intercourse, business and duties of life; just to themselves and to all men; and their mother I know they will not forget. God bless and keep you all--mother and children’; and born to Nancy and Taylor were:

He assumed so great an indebtedness in the purchase of the property, that the interest on it became a burden greater than the business was able to bear; so, after persevering five years, he sold the hotel to Mr. Samuel Jenkins in 1853, thus this public house, which had been the property of four generations, during a period of 67 years, passed from the possession of the family. Mr. More grew to manhood in the hotel, and never acquired a taste for either tobacco or liquor, but all his life was a staunch, practical, aggressive temperance man. After the sale of the hotel, he devoted all his energies to agricultural pursuits. He erected a comfortable residence on the farm, with substantial dairy buildings, and he was considered one of the best farmers in the region. In August of the year that he removed to the farm, the shadow of affliction fell across his home, and his beloved wife passed forever from these earthly scenes, leaving an infant son; remarried 1859 and there were kids born to that union also; and born to Polly and Wilson were:

Reubey - Graduated from Chicago Art Institute, later conducted an art studio in the Fine Arts Building on Michigan Ave in Chicago with her sister Mary. Travelled to China to work for the American Bible Society. She lived there with her sister Mary Lydia Ferris Swan and Dr. Alfred Swan. Grandma Reubey painted many beautiful pictures during her time in China and later in India as well. Family and friends as well as private and public buildings have the privilege of having her artwork. The Park St Church in Grand Rapids MI windows were designed by her, executed by Tiffany Bros. There is a Mural of " If I be lifted up" at the Milton Congregational Church, Milton, Wisconsin-dedicated to William Peck Ferris and wife Betsey Ann Janes. John T. Ferris pulled together a photo collection of her work in 2004 for family distribution.

When Harlo H Ferris was in China, en route to India for YMCA work, Dr. Swan, who headed the YMCA branch in Shanghai noticed a Harlo Ferris on a printed list of visiting citizens in Shanghai for Christmas. He thought it would be funny to invite Mr. HH Ferris to Christmas dinner and sit him next to his sister-in-law Reubey. Little did he know that he would be setting up a match that would last for more than 30 years of marriage. Everyone enjoyed the joke and Grandma and Grandpa wrote for many months until he proposed and she accepted with a simple wired message of "Coming." Both were Ferris last name but could not find close relatives enough for any offspring issues. They were married in Bombay, India and lived there for several years during Harlo's YMCA service to WW I service men stationed there. After first son Harlo Jr. born, they moved back to the US.

Reubey was very close in age to her sister Mary and very close in physical features as well. When Mary's daughter Mary Swan saw her Aunt Reubey in the 30s on a short visit to Wisconsin, she remarked "Ohh, you have Mother's hands!!!" Grandma Reubey died of cancer.

Reubey Statira Ferris was the second daughter of Reubey Statira (Tomlinson) Ferris and Jay Floyd Ferris. Floyd Ferris was owner, operator of the Ferris Coffee and Nut Company of Grand Rapids. Her Mother, Mrs. Reubey S.T. Ferris, was niece and 'adopted daughter' of "Deacon" and Mrs. (Sarah Tomlinson) William Haldane. Mrs. R.S.T. Ferris lived with the Haldanes a number of years prior to her marriage to Floyd Ferris and afterwards as well, she was later made heir to William Haldane's estate. Grand Rapids history identifies William Haldane as early founder of the GR furniture business and a prominent member in the Park St. Congregational Church.

Reubey Statira Ferris had six brothers and sisters and also lived at the Deacon William Haldane's home for a time on Jefferson Street after the Deacon’s wife Sarah passed away. Her parents also had a home on Madison St. She and her siblings were all baptized and active members in the Park St Congregational Church during their youth, singing in the choir, etc. Reubey graduated from Grand Rapids High School. She recounted found memories of living in Grand Rapids during those times. Reubey and several siblings were very musical, well written, and artistic. She worked in several media and perfected pastels, water color and large oil mural paintings.

Reubey S. Ferris graduated from Chicago Art Institute in 1907, and later conducted an art studio in the Fine Arts Building on Michigan Ave in Chicago, IL as a commercial artist with her sister Mary Lydia Ferris, also of Grand Rapids. In about 1913, she traveled to China to work for the American Bible Society. She lived in Shanghai for several years with her sister Mary (Lydia Ferris) Swan and Mary's husband Dr. Alfred Swan, of the Shanghai YMCA. In addition to her American Bible Society work, Reubey taught painting on the side and painted many beautiful pictures during her time in China and later in India as well.

She met Rev Harlo Hakes Ferris in Shanghai who was en route to Bombay India to work for the YMCA. [Genealogy shows that they are from two different branches of the Jeffrey Ferris family.] After a brief courtship, they were married in Bombay in 1919. Rev and Mrs. Ferris returned to the United States in 1921 after the birth of their son Harlo Jr. in India. They had two additional children in the US, John Tomlinson Ferris and Mary Statira Ferris Gilbert, all three of whom are alive today with active spouses, children and grandchildren. Daughter Mary Ferris Gilbert has inherited her mother's artistic skill and interest in stained glass design and has produced several lovely large pieces of work for family and friends.

Rev and Mrs. Ferris lived primarily in Wisconsin from 1921-1955 until Reubey's death in October of 1955 from cancer. Rev. Ferris had several different Congregational parishes across the state during that time, and summers were spent many times on Michigan's lakes. Reubey supplemented the meager minister's income by selling her exotic and local subject paintings and was commissioned to paint several murals in private homes, churches and businesses. The two windows at the First (Park St.) Church, designed by Mrs. Ferris, are the only stained glass work renderings of her work that the Ferris family knows of at this time. In 1937, benefactors of the First (Park St) Church in Grand Rapids MI requested that she design two windows for the sanctuary. “ The Spirit of Music window



When Park's 1929 remodeling created the chancel at the sanctuary's east end, two small window openings, about seventeen by forty-five inches, were left in the lower part of the bricked-in space where the displaced Tiffanys had been. During the church's cen­tenary seven years later, two of its women were inspired to donate memorial stained glass works to fill them. Tiffany Studios accepted the dual commission, but went bankrupt before the new windows could be made. Erhardt Stoettner, head of the art glass department at Milwaukee's T. C. Esser Company, finally supervised fabrication of this pair, reportedly utilizing pieces acquired from the defunct firm.

Dorothy Stuart Blake and her three married sisters gave the north side window in memory of their parents. The Blakes, some of whose descendants remained as Park mem­bers into the twenty-first century, had a long history of being active in the church's music department. The symbolic trumpeting angel, then, was an obvious memorial choice to stand for their musical spirit. It was Miss Blake who suggested incorporating water lilies and gladiolus blooms, with what she called "a touch of the American Beauty" rose color in one "glad," to represent all three of the family's favorite flowers.



Both windows, dedicated together on June 19, 1938, were assembled with highly translucent glass to bring light into their rather dark comers. To be better seen by the congregation, they also were set as far inward as possible from the outside walls. Their color scheme was chosen to harmonize with the Tiffanys already in place.
