Thomas Tigar
Birth: Sep. 10, 1807
Beverley
East Riding of Yorkshire, England
Death: Feb. 17, 1875
Fort Wayne
Allen County
Indiana, USA

Co-founder, editor and publisher of the Fort Wayne Sentinel in its *very* early days! I don't know the bounds of his career, but he was editor and/or involved at least from 1833-1857.

Interred Feb 21, 1875.

One side of his primary plot stone is meant to memorialize his first wife and two children who died and were buried before Lindenwood came into existence. Who knows where their remains lie, for it doesn't appear they were removed to Lindenwood. The information from that stone's side:
