He was buried in Pleasant Grove Cemetery, Mount Vernon, Jefferson County, Illinois.15 I remember my Grandpa Cherry
as a wonderful man with a streak of orneriness. He is the one that taught me
about electric fences and old ganders. He used to sit outside on the swing with
a plug of chewing tobacco because Grandma wouldn't let him in the house with
it. He was square shouldered and average height (to me as a child, he was tall).
He wore a size 16 shirt to get it over his large shoulders but it was loose
around the middle. His favorite shirts were red-plaid flannel. We gave him
a box of chocolates every Christmas and then the grand kids teased him by trying
to get to the candy. His old dog was named Shep, he had a tame bull named Redbud
and a mean gander named Frank (because his call sounded like he was saying Frank).

THE NAME AND FAMILY OF CHERRY
Compiled by The Media Research Bureau
The name of Cherry is derived from the residence of its first bearers at or near
a cherry tree or at a place so named. It is found in ancient English and early
American records in the various forms of Cherie, Chirir, Chery, Cherye, Cherey,
Cherrey, Cherrie, Cherrye, and Cherry, of which is the spelling used most frequently
in America in modern times.
Families bearing this name were seated at early dates in the English Counties
of Derby, Chester, Berkshire, Surrey, and Hereford, as well as in the city and
vicinity of London. These families were, generally speaking, of the landed gentry
of Great Britian.
Among the earliest definite records of the name in England are those of William
Chirie or Cherie, of Derbyshire, about the year 1273; and those of William Chery
or Cherry, who was living in the twenty-first year of the reign of King Henry
the Sixth, about the year 1460. These records are, however, only fragmentary.

changed in English to Cherries and so to Cherry.
