|Jane Barkell||RE: Thomas Watson|
Bozeman Chronicle May 28, 1908
Thomas Watson, a prominent pioneer of Gallatin county, was found dead in bed at his home in the Madison valley, Tuesday morning, May 19. He had gotten out of bed and started a fire, when he was evidently taken with heart failure. The remains were brought to Bozeman and intered in the Catholic cemetery. The funeral was held from the Holy Rosary Catholic church Tuesday morning and was conducted by Rev Father Thompson. The pallbearers were M McDonnell, Bernard Farrell, J J Crowley, Thomas Lane, Charles Callahan and W Davis. David Watson, a nephew of the deceased, accompanied by his wife and daughter, arrived Thursday, from Flushing, Ohio, and will remain about two months at the home of M McDonnell, Hyde,Montana, while Mr. Watson settles up his uncle's estate.Thomas Watson was born at Waterford, Ireland, and was sixty-four years of age. He came to Montana about forty years ago and he resided in Gallatin county the greater part of that time, on his ranch near Hyde, in the madison valley. He had extensive mine holdings at Revenue and leaves considerable baluable mining property as weel as a good ranch.

At this point there is no headstone for Thomas. There is one headstone in a lilac bush (not Thomas) but there are lots of lilacs with lots of semi hidden headstones and the lilacs are dense. I am waiting for fall to check again. At one point many headstones were moved to the catholic section of the city cemetery, but I can't find him there either. The church was selling the property. I did look up the obit and he was buried here.
I saw the Holy Rosary Cemetery as I was pulling into my motel across the street from the cemetery. My kids groaned when they saw it knowing my interests. I had some free time so my youngest daughter (13 yo) walked over to the cemetery with me. We walked the whole cemetery in between finding shelter under lilac bushes and elm trees from an afternoon rain storm that popped up.
We didn't find Thomas Watson. I noticed most of the tombstones are photographed and posted already. I didn't see if they where posted by the same person (slow to check multiple posts on my phone) but my guess is someone already walked the cemetery and posted the pics.
I think this site is wonderful, people providing pics like this for others who can't visit for themselves.
It appears there are many graves that are unmarked in this cemetery. Because there are large areas between markers.
I enjoyed the search. Good luck!
Rosamund Armington is no relation of mine. I was walking the cemetery and photographing graves. Would be happy to transfer to you if you are related.
