DEATH OF WALTER THOMAS.
Was a Good Man and Loved by The
People of Chatham.
After many months ,of a lingering
illness, Mr. Walter Thomas, of Mon
cure route 2, passed at his home last
Monday morning at 3 o’clock. He was
46 years, nine months and five days
old, having been born on June 19th,
1878. . - -
He is survived by his father, Mr.
John Thomas, his mother having died
three y/ears ago, also three brothers,
Ben and Alvis, of Raleigh and Lem
uel, of Bennettsviile, S. C., and two
sisters, Mrs. Mary Lasater and Mrs.
Nanqy Harmon. Another sister, Mrs.
C. T. Desern, died a few years ago.
He leaves also a large number of oth
er relatives and hundreds of friends
who will regret to learn of his death.
Mr. Thomas was universally known
in Chatham county as being an ideal
citizen. It has been expressed by many
that he never said a harmful word,
or done an unkind thing to no one;
he was broad minded and charitable
in his views. He was alert to public
questions and his ideas and opinions
were regarded with concern. While he
was limited in educational advan
tages, he was well read and kept him
seii informed on matters of import
ance at all times.
He never quarreled and he was al
ways cheerful and displayed that great
reverence to God and humanity that
makes real manhood. He was devot
ed to the church and was always wil
ling and ready to do good.
What more could be said? Truly a
good man has entered into his king
i dom, long expected and desired, and
he went ahead unafraid and willing.
The funeral services over his re
mains w’ere conducted by his pastor,
Rev. J. J. Boone, at Mt. Zion Meth
odist church last Tuesday aftemon at
three o’clock, and interrmeat follow
ed in the cemetery at that church.
A large crowd was present at the
, funeral and the floral tributes were
