"Funeral services for the late Thomas L. Golcher, once a well known Republican leader in Kensington, will be held at his home, 116 Girard avenue, this afternoon. He was several times the nominee of his party for Councils, but owing to the large Democratic majority that existed in the ward at that time he was defeated. He was a native of Gettysburg and enlisted in an Illinois regiment when he was 18 years old. He served for four years in the army and following the close of the war and until his death was located on West Girard avenue as a portrait artist. For the past fifteen years, Mr. Golcher was the quartermaster of Newhall Post, No. 7, and for ten years the secretary of Thermopylae Senate, No. 3, Order of Sparta. He died from a complication of diseases early Monday morning."
