Thomas Port, One of the Wealthiest Men in the Gas Belt, Run Down on the Big Four Road at Muncie
MUNCIE, Ind., Nov. 8. Thomas Port, president of the Port Glass Manufacturing Co., was killed by a Big Four passenger train Monday morning while returning from a fire. Mr. Port was slightly deaf, and he did not hear his companion shouting for him to step off the track. The body was terribly mangled. A wife and three children survive. John Port, one of his sons, is prominently identified with the fruit jar manufacturers of the United States and he is secretary of the company of which his father was president. Port was one of the wealthiest men in the gas belt.

"Killed By A Train," Albion Noble County Democrat (Albion, Indiana), 17 November 1898, p. 2, col. 4.
