The Springs Valley Herald (May 3, 1934) reported "Thomas R. McCarty, 72, died at his home in the Sulphur Creek neighborhood, April 26 from carcinoma of the liver. Funeral services were held at Ames Chapel by Rev. Ed Apple Saturday with interment in the church cemetery. He is survived by his wife, two daughters, Mrs. Ruth Lashbrooks, Mrs. Doris Seybold, three sons, Lloyd, Ivan and Lee. Ritter & Son had charge of funeral arrangements."
The same issue also reported "Thomas Richard McCarty, son of John and Delphia McCarty, was born in Dubois County, Ind. March 14, 1862 and died April 26, 1934, aged 72 years, 1 month and 12 days. He was united in marriage to Altie E. Hawks Dec. 15, 1887. Eight children came to bless this union, five boys and three girls. Three of these dear children have preceded him to the great beyond, namely Della, Reed and Harold. He leaves to mourn his loss, his beloved companion, three sons, Lloyd and Ivan of French Lick, and Lee of Ellsworth, Ill., two daughters, Doris Seybold and Ruth Lashbrooks, both of French Lick, sixteen grandchildren, four grandchildren having preceded him in death; one sister, Mrs. Lucy Garrison, one brother, James, both of French Lick; and a host of friends and relatives. One granddaughter, Marie, has shared the comforts of this home since infancy. In the passing of Thomas R. McCarty it brings to our memory today that one by one we are being plucked from among the living by the still white hand of death; and one by one we are being gathered by Him, who reigns above, to enjoy the hidden riches that dog has in store for his children. We can look in remembrance over the life for outstanding traits of his character and find those that stand out above all others was his love for home and loved ones, love for relatives and friends and all with whom he came in contact."
