Prominent Adams County Farmer Dies.
Thos. W. Horton of New Rome died
very suddenly last Friday evening, June
14, 1902, of heart disease. He had not
been sick to be confined to his home at
all, but had been in failing health for
some time. The funeral was held on
Monday afternoon in New Rome, Rev.
W. A. Peterson of Grand Rapids officiat-
ing. It was the largest funeral ever
held in that section, over eighty teams
being in the procession. The deceased
was born in Orange county, New York,
May 16, 1831, and came west in 1855, lo-
cating in 1857 at New Rome where he
has since resided. He was a very prom-
inent citizen of Adams county and was
well-known to all the older residents of
this locality. His wife died about twelve
years ago. Seven children survive him
—Schuyler, of Milwaukee, Almond of
Spring Creek, Dwight, Nellie and Mamie
of New Rome, and Arthur and Walter
who are traveling salesmen and make
their headquarters at Eau Claire. All
were present at the funeral.
--Wisconsin Valley Leader; Thursday, June 19, 1902, Grand Rapids, Wisconsin
