Her father was David A. Terry, a Brooklyn manufacturer. She has a pretty younger sister, a sturdy young brother. Her mother was of Cuban birth, aiuj once after her marriage to Jack Johnson, -she had tried to Justify herself by saying th-at there was some negro blood in her family, but they declared was absolutely untrue. Her first marriage was to Clareuce E. Buryea, a member of an old Long Island family, wealthy, a famous horseman; notably a singer also, ba-iug a tenor soloist at the Garden. City Cathedral. Her meeting with young Duryea was unconventional and romantic. Her Meeting With Duryea The young man's mount had gone lame during, a fox hun-t and he had lost the pack. He came leading his limping horse to the Terry country home, asking the privilege of watering the horse and accepting from thi. girl's hand a glass of water for him-: self.
