In Memoriam: Isaac Thornburg
Born November 11, 1818 in Highland County, Ohio
Died March 7, 1900 at Windsor, Indiana
Isaac Thornburg was born in Highland County, Ohio November 11, 1818, and died at Windsor, Randolph County, Indiana, March 7, 1900, aged 81 years, 3 months and fourteen days. The deceased was a son of John and Susannah Bales Thornburg. He was married to Mary A. Smithson on March 30, 1837. His wife died May 17, 1891. From this union there were born six children - four sons and two daughters, viz: John W., Thomas F., Charles Lindley, Thomas Wesley, Judith A., wife of Joshua Swingley, and Angeline, wife of William A. [H] Dilley, all of whom are living except Charles Lindley and John Wesley, both of whom died in infancy.
He was initiated into Odd fellowship in Parker lodge, No. 170, of Parker, Indiana on March 27, 1864; withdrew from that lodge by card January 18, 1876, and was admitted to membership in Windsor Lodge No. 517 on February 10,1876 . He was a past grand and a member of the Grand Lodge of Indiana. He was also a member of Windsor Lodge, D. of R. No 533. He was in good standing in said lodges at the time of his death. He was also a consistent member, in full fellowship, of the Christian Church at Windsor in the faith of which he died triumphantly. As an Odd Fellow he was always ready and willing to perform his part. No weather was too inclement, nor distance too long to cause him to shrink from his duty when called upon to wait on a sick brother. In his lodge room he was always cheerful, sociable and affable. He was tenacious in his convictions of what he believed to be right.
He was one of the pioneers of this county and helped to clear the vast forests, doing an immense amount of hard labor. As a citizen and neighbor, none excelled him. He was strictly honest, obliging to all of his neighbors, and kind and indulgent to his family.
He was buried by his lodge, which he dearly loved, ........at Union Cemetery, two and a half miles south of Windsor, on Thursday, March 8, 1900 in the presence of a large concourse of relatives, friends and neighbors. He leaves behind to mourn his loss two brothers and one sister - William A. and Lindley M. Thornburg and Elizabeth Dick, two sons, two daughters-in-law, fourteen grandchildren and sixteen great grandchildren.
The funeral services at the church were conducted by Rev. A.G. Kiger of Selma, Indiana, assisted by Rev. John Robins of Millgrove, Indiana.
The following preamble and resolutions were unanimously adopted his lodge on the night of March 17, 1900.
Resolved, That we humbly bow in submission to Him who doeth all things well; that we will ever cherish a fond remembrance of his many virtues; that in his death this lodge has lost a true and faithful Odd Fellow, his family a kind and indulgent parent, and society a useful member.
Resolved, That we tender to the family of the deceased our heartfelt sympathy in this their sad bereavement; that our lodge room be draped in mourning for the period of thirty days; that a copy of this memorial and these resolutions be sent to the family of the deceased, spread on the minutes of this lodge and sent to the county papers for publication.
