Redmond Conyngham Drum of Thornhurst, died very suddenly on Sunday evening. While conversing with his family during the evening he was taken ill and assisted to his bed but had hardly laid down before he expired. The news of Mr. Drum's death comes as a great shock to his many friends in both Luzerne and Lackawanna counties where he had a wide acquaintanceship.

Mr. Drum was born Decmeber 13, 1843, at Drums, Luzerne county, Pennsylvania, on the farm which was last purchased by the county for the Boys' Industrial school. He was the son of Philip Drum, one of the pioneer settlers of Butler Valley. He was named after Redmond Conyngham, who was a warm friend of his father's, and who at one time owned the greater part of the land in Butler Valley.

Mr. Drum was twice married. His widow, Mrs. Jennie Drum, and three children, Herbert R., who is a civil engineer, connected with the Vulcan Iron Works of Wilkes-Barra; Dr. Clinton P., of Los Angeles, Cal., and Dorothy, at home, survive him. Mr. Drum's death is a distinct loss not only to his family, but to the entire community in which he lived. There was no enterprise of any kind undertaken that that vicinity in which he did not have a part.


He married Emily (aka Emma) C. Leach on December 26, 1871 in Scranton, Lackawanna, Pennsylvania.

Her death record has her buried at a different cemetery other than Pine Grove cemetery.
