Thomas Whisler was born in the county of Norfolk, England, September 30, 1813, became a farmer of that country and was married in England, September, 1845. In December, 1854, he came with his family to the United States, landing at New York, whence he made his way direct to Scott county, where he resided continuously until his death. At that time there were two children in the family, Sarah Ann and Christopher. On reaching Iowa Mr. Whistler settled in Buffalo township, where he purchased eighty acres of prairie land, on which he built a house, making it his home for a number of years. He then sold out in 1865 and invested in eighty acres in Allens Grove township. Upon that farm both he and his wife spent their remaining days, Mrs. Whistler passing away June 9, 1883, at the age of fifty-three years, while Mr. Whistler died February 21, 1891. In their family were five children: Sarah Ann, deceased; Christopher S., who is living in Donahue; Mrs. Jane E. Maw, of Donahue, Mrs. Madden; and Mrs. Alice Jackson of Nebraska. At the time of the death of Mr. Whistler one of the local papers said: "In the death of Mr. Whistler the community has lost a good neighbor and true friend, who retained his trust in God's holy word and was a faithful believer to the end."
