Thompson F. Hanks died at his home two miles southwest of Centreville on November 14. He was aged 62 years, four months and 30 days. Mr. Hanks was born near Akersville. On November 29, 1864, he was married to Catharine A. Akers. To this union 12 children were born. James lives at Johnstown; Verdine at Pittsburg; John, at Frieden's; Espy, George and Goldie, at home, Elizabeth, near Pittsburg; Rachel and Sadie, at Cumberland. Joseph was drowned near Johnstown, two years ago, while bathing. Edward and May died when they were quite young. Mr. Hanks and his family moved to Cumberland Valley in 1877 and he peeled and hauled bark for several years; he then purchased a small farm and was one of the most successful farmers and fruit growers of that section. The "captain," as he was familiarly called, served in the civil war and was a pensioner for many years. Interment was made in the Bethel M. E. cemetery on Monday. The funeral services were held in the church nearby, Rev. Gross officiating. The Odd Fellows' took charge of the body and laid it to rest with the solemn rites of the order, of which he was a member.
