Thomas Henry Barham The Nine Barham Children Bury Their Father At Luray February 27, 1852 to August 17, 1932
The funeral of Thomas Henry Barham, age 80, of Strasburg, a native of Page county and almost a life-long resident of this community, was held from Main Street Baptist Church, Luray, at 2:30 p.m. on Friday with services by Eld Arthur W. Campbell, and interment in Green Hill Cemetery.
All of Mr. Barham's nine children with members of their families were present the number including Robert F. Barham, of Winchester, D. Henry Barham, of Baltimore, Roscoe Barham, of Washington, D.C. Thomas Thurman Barham, of Luray, Mrs. Sam (Anna S. "Annie") Hoffman of Waterlick, VA., Mrs. Lester (Alma Odessa) Kibler of Boyce, Va., Mrs. Thomas (Lena Mae) Strickler of Strasburg, Mrs. Loring (Elsie Myrtle) Pingley of Winchester, and Mrs. C. B. (Mary Elizabeth) Mauck of Luray. One son Samuel Randolph Barham preceded him in death.
Mr. Barham died at home of his daughter, Mrs. Thomas Strickler, in Strasburg, at 11, p.m. last Wednesday, after several years suffering from a cancerous trouble. He had been bedfast for ten weeks. While frequently in Luray he had not resided here regularly since about ten years ago when he moved to Strasburg. His wife who was a sister of the late George W. Judd, of Fairview this county, died six years ago, and since that time Mr. Barham has resided with his children. He was at Strasburg usually during the three years preceding his death.
Born West of the river near Bixler's Ferry, in Page county, on Feb. 27, 1852, Mr. Barham spent all his life in this county until a decade ago. He was a master plasterer whose services were in constant demand, and he taught his trade to his large family of sons. He was the last of his family, his deceased brothers and sisters having been Charles and William Barham, of Edinburg, Benjamin Barham, of Washington, D.C., Mrs. Jacob Williams, of Culpeper county, and Miss Mattie Barham, of Luray. Mr. Barham was a kind-hearted citizen and a conscientious skillful workman who had the hearty goodwill of all who knew him.
The family wish to thank the many persons who showed sympathy and assisted them in their time of sorrow and are especially appreciative of the kind remarks of Eld A. W. Campbell who spoke at the funeral.
