ROBERT TENER (1869 - 1943)


In my last post I included a request for contact. I thought it would help to reproduce the obituary which was in the Newark Evening News in January 1943:

Robert Tener, 74, of 680 Belgrove Drive, Arlington, died at his home yesterday, after an illness of several months. Born in Belfast, Ireland, he lived in West Hudson more than fifty years and was employed by the Linen Thread Co., Kearny, until his retirement ten years ago. He was a member of Copestone Lodge, F. and A. M., Kearny.

Mr. Tener is survived by a son John of East Orange, and two daughters: Mrs. Mary McKellin of Arlington; and Mrs. Martha Barian of Allenhurst. Masonic services will be held tomorrow at 8:00 PM at the George Brierly Funeral Home, 750 Kearney Avenue, Arlington. Rev. Dr. Wallace Carver of First Presbyterian Church, Arlington, will officiate at religious services there Monday at 2:00 PM. Internment will be at Arlington Cemetery.

Hope to hear from a descendant.
