OBITUARY OF THOMAS J. CLAY
Thomas J. Clay was born in Halifax County, Virginia, Nov. 22, 1824, and died at his home in Harrodsburg, Ind., September 15, 1908, in his 84th year.
He was married to Angeline Whisman, April 30th, 1846. He united with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church at Ellettsville Ind., Oct. 18, 1853. His and his wife's membership was moved to the Harrodsburg congregation in 1863. Shortly after he united with the church, he was elected a ruling elder and continued to serve in that capacity up to the date of his death. Although for the past two years the infirmities of age and bad health prevented his taking an active part in church work, he was a prominent figure in the councils of the church and was often called on to officiate at funerals. He was loyal to the church of his choice, and his time and means were freely
given to its interests, but he was always liberal and ever ready to help others in the good work. For more than 45 years he was a faithful member of the Masonic order and filled a number of important positions in the local lodge.
He leaves four children: Mrs. George Strain, Mrs. Nan Johnson, Finis L. and John C. Clay. Funeral services were held at the Presbyterian Church conducted by Rev. Quincy Short and the Masonic order.
