Mr Ferris was the son of Isaac Ferris and the grandson of Ebenezer Ferris, who first preached in the original Duck Creek Baptist Church, the oldest institution of its kind west of the Alleghanies. Mr. Ferris’ father also was a preacher of the Duck Creek Church. Mr. Ferris was born in the old homestead, 2990 Lindwood Road, October 5, 1829. During his youth the entire business district of Cincinnati was below Pearl Street. When in his early twenties Mr. Ferris sarted in partnership with his brother John and began the Ferris Hame Manufacturing Company, which for years operated in Linwood, and later changed its name to the J.A. DeArmond Manufacturing Company. Following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps, Mr. Ferris took an active interest in the Duck Creek Baptist Church, now the Baptist Church on Erie Avenue, Hyde Park. After serving for more than a half century as a deacon in that institution, Mr. Ferris was made a permanent deacon. This honor was bestowed on him some ten years ago, shortly after he retired from active business. An honor of which Mr. Ferris felt proud was the fact that in all his years he never voted any place but Precinct C of the First Ward. His father, too, always voted in that same precinct. Last Friday, Mr. Ferris walked by himself to the voting place and registered. That night he was taken suddenly ill. Dr. Dixon of Hyde Park was summoned and ordered the aged man to bed. His decline was very rapid, and at 2 o’clock yesterday afternoon he succumbed. Acute indigestion is given as the cause of his death. He served as a home guard for 100 days during the war of 1861-1865. Less than two weeks ago at the birthday reception in his honor, Mr. Ferris recalled reminiscences of early days and repeated the tales hold him by his grandfather. Four children, ten grandchildren and give great-grandchildren survive him. The children aer Mrs. Anna B Green, Dr. E. S. Ferris of Columbus, Ohio, F. W. Ferris of Cincinnati and Mrs. Dell Sober of Hot Springs, New Mexico.”; and born to him and Nancy were:
