Birth: Mar. 1, 1838
Death: Mar. 7, 1916

Thomas Jefferson Carlisle was the son of Greene Whatley Carlisle and Mary Elizabeth Leverett.

His obituary from an unidentified newspaper, presumably The Weekly Enterprise, Enterprise, Chambers County, Ala:............"MAJOR CARLISLE BURIED AT BRUNDIDGE ENTERPRISE, Ala., March 8 - T. J........... Carlisle one of the prominent citizens of this city, died at his home on Tuesday night about 8 o'clock, after a short illness. Death was due to heart failure. Major Carlisle was born in Chambers county, Alabama, March 1, 1828, where he lived until he enlisted in the Confederate army. He served with distinction throughout the war and was rapidly promoted. After the war he moved to Pike county, where he taught school for many years. He served Pike county as representative in the state senate during 1881, and, later, was state lecturer of the Alliance for three years. In 1901 Major Carlisle came to Enterprise, and during his residence here has taken an active part in the interests of the town. He took a strong part in politics, always working for the side which he thought was in the right, and was not afraid to stand by his convictions. He was one of the leaders in church work, and was for many years moderator of the Coffee county Baptist Association. Every progressive move for the town had him as a champion, and he worked for them as if they were his personal business interests. He was prominent in Masonic circles, and was also a member of the Odd Fellows. The people of Enterprise learned to respect Mr. Carlisle, many of whom called him "Uncle Tom." He was a true Southern gentleman of the old school, polite, generous, kind and possessing chivalry that is only credited to the true Southern gentleman. Major Carlisle is survived by a wife and five children, Mrs. I. L. Turner, Enterprise; A. B. Carlisle, Montgomery; G. W. Carlisle, Enterprise; Brooks Carlisle, Lochapoka, and Mrs. J. Ed Smith, Enterprise. The body will be taken to Brundridge Thursday afternoon, where interment will be made."
