Obituary from the Brazil Times June 25, 1912
Mrs. Isabelle Thomas
Mrs. Isabelle Thomas, aged 71 years, died at 12:45 o’clock this morning of general debility at her home, 120 South Walnut street. She is survived by three daughters, Mrs, Rachael Wesley, Mrs. W.T. Brown, Mrs. John Chesterfield and three sons, Henry Martin of Harmony, John Martin of Calcutta, and Leonard Martin of Fontanet.
Short funeral services will be held at the residence at one p.m. Wednesday and at the U.B. Church at Harmony at 2:30 o’clock. The burial will be in Calcutta Cemetery.
*Note: The age in this obituary is surely wrong. Isabel was listed as 80 years old in the 1900 census and other records are consistent with a birth around 1820 or 1821. Perhaps the obit is misprinted and should have listed a 91 year old age.
