Peterson, Thomas
Mr. Thomas Peterson a thrifty farmer and estimable citizen of the Fourth district was found dead in his barn on his farm a mile east of Cherry Hill on Wednesday morning about six o`clock. Half an hour before he had started for the barn and not returning his wife, Sarah L. DuLane Peterson, went there and found him lying on the floor. She sent word to Coroner Litzenberg who accompanied by Dr. Howard Bratton went to view the remains. As there were no marks of violence or suspicious circumstances the coroner decided not to hold an inquest. The deceased had been suffering from heart disease for several years and this Dr. Bratton thinks caused his death. Mr. Peterson by industry had accumulated considerable property owning two farms in the Fourth district, one in Western Maryland and houses in Elkton and Chesapeake City. He leaves no children. The funeral services will be held at his late residence on Sunday morning, interment at Cherry Hill. Mr. Peterson was in his 77th year.
--The Cecil Whig, September 28, 1889

(note-his tombstone reads: In his 76th year.)
