In the spring of 1872 they moved to Minnesota. 18 The Minnesota Years 1872–1884 LESS PRIMARY DOCUMENTATION IS AVAILABLE FOR Emily Terry's Minnesota years than for any other period of her life. Her name is virtually nonexistent in Minnesota archival materials. Beyond her recognition as a plant collector by Upham in his Catalogue of the Flora of Minnesota (1884), the only mention we can find of her throughout the nine years of her married life spent in the state is when she is identified as the wife of Cassius Terry in his obituaries.

There he ministered to a Presbyterian church over the winter. But his health continued to fail. In May 1878 the Terrys returned to Minnesota and took up residence in Minneapolis, where Terry was temporarily in charge of the First Congregational Church during the regular pastor's leave in Europe.
