Anityville, L. I., January 23--Mrs. Elizabeth Jervis, widow of Joel

Jervis, died at this place yesterday at the age of 100 years, 6 months,

and 2 days. Mrs. Jervis lived at the residence of her son, Scudder C.

Jervis. In the Eagle of July 20, 1894, the following was contained in a

dispatch recounting a celebration of Mrs. Jervis 100th birthday:

=93About forty direct descendants of Mrs. Jervis came out from Brooklyn

this morning and a fete is being held in the orchard, under the shade of

trees that have been standing for a century or more. Mrs. Jervis, who is

in the possession of all her faculties and still quite vigorous, is

outdoors with the party, taking a lively interest in the festivities.

Her descendants living today number seven children, 19 grand children,

60 great great grandchildren, and three great great grandchildren--a

total of eighty-nine. Nearly all of these are attending the celebration

and many of them are Brooklynites.

=93The children are: Mrs. Phebe J. Van Buren, Miss Eliza Jervis, Scudder

C. Jervis, Mrs. Ezra R. Sammis, H. Clark, S. Jervis, William I. Jervis,

Mrs. Adele J. Vogt. The grandchildren are: Perlee V. Jervis, Frank Terry

Jervis, George Jervis, Joshua Jervis, Arthur N. Jervis, Mrs. Ida Jervis

Schepmoes, Miss Jessie W. Jervis, Frederick B. Sammis, Miss Lena Sammis,

Mrs. Henry Pettitt, Mrs. Henry Beers, Mrs. Alonzo Conklin, Mrs. Joel

Ardiner, Mordaut Smith, Horace M. Smith, Joel Smith, Henry Smith,

William W. Smith. As most of these children have their husbands or wives

and their children with them the family reunion is one of considerable

proportions. The eldest of Mrs. Jervis=92 children is 76. She has lost

only one, a Mrs. Gilbert Smith, who died at Huntington eight years ago.=20

=93Mrs. Jervis is a wonderfully well preserved woman. The luxuriant

tresses for which she was noted in girlhood and which became a family

feature in the descendants of her own sex, have almost defied time. She

reads without the aid of glasses, hears well, moves about unassisted and

has always a trace of color in her cheeks. She never has experienced any

kind of illness. She was born in Brooklyn and she with her descendants

represents some of the oldest of Long Island families. She was the only

child of Henry Clark Smith and Jemimt Terry. Her father was a son of

Col. William Smith, governor of Tangiers, who, in 1690, purchased a

strip of Long Island fifty miles wide and extending from the sound to

the bay. This was known as Setauket. From him sprang the families known

as the Brookhaven Smiths, Smithtown Smiths and Tangiers Smiths.

=93The mother of Mrs. Jervis was a daughter of Jeremiah Terry of Sayville.

Joel Jervis, to whom the centenarian was married in 1816, traced his

lineage to Stephen Jervis, who landed in Primrose in 1637. From this

ancestor the line ran back to a Gervaise who crossed with William the

Conqueror and settled in Scotland. Lord Jervis, the Earl St. Vincent,

represented the English branch of the family. Joel Jervis was the only

son of Phebe Carll of Joseph I. Jervis, who, by a second marriage, had

seven children, one of them being John B. Jervis, the engineer of the

first croton aqueduct and the man after whom Port Jervis, NY, was named.
