Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1837
Death: Mar. 27, 1915

Ogdensburg Advance - Thursday April 1, 1915
After a long period of ill health from chronic heart trouble, Thomas Caldwell aged seventy-seven years, died early Saturday morning at his home in this village. While he had been failing for some time, he had been confined to his bed but a few days, suffering no pain but gradually growing weaker, until the end came, just a long quiet sleep. Mr. Caldwell was born in the town of Lisbon, where his early life was spent upon a farm. After coming to this place, he, for many years, engaged in the meat business, then moved to Ogdensburg where he carried on a shop for some time. Returning to this town, he purchased from Charles Wilson the home on Rensselaer St., where he has since resided. In early life he ws united in marriage with Miss Ruth Smithers of the town of Lisbon. Six children were born to them, two of whom died in early age. Two sons and two daughters are left to mourn the loss of a dear father; Mrs. Fannie McCarthy of Chicago, who was unable to come home on account of illness; Mrs. McLocklin of Babylon, L.I., Frederick and William Caldwell of New York, who have been in the home for several days previous to the death of their father. Their mother died twelve years ago, and in the autumn of the next year, Mr. Caldwell married Mrs. Laville Rickett, who has been a devoted wife and home-maker. Funeral services conducted by his pastor were held Monday afternoon from the M.E. church of which he had been a member for over forty-nine years. Mr. Hastings spoke from words found in Second Samuel, 3.38. Appropriate music was rendered by a quartette composed of I.C. Gray, L. J. Crayford, E.A. Banford and DeWitt Flack. Sympathetic resolutions of respect were read by a member of the official board of the church and also by the superintendent of the Sunday School. Mr. Caldwell will be greatly missed from the church circle, from the home, and in the community where he was always spoken of as being an honest, up-right Christian man. Many beautiful floral pieces were sent by friends, and by the church officials. Burial was in the family plot, in Hillcrest cemetery.
