The Decatur Herald, Decatur, Sept. 1, 1900:
"T. B. ALBERT DEAD - T. B. Albert, died at his home on Cassell Hill at 10:30 last night aged 84 years. The deceased had been a sufferer from Bright's disease for the past ten years his advanced age along with the disease was the cause of his death. With the death of "Uncle Tommy" Albert, as he was familiarly known, is the passing of one of the citizens of the city who was for many years a familiar figure in the legal circles of the city. The deceased was born in Daupin Co., Pa. in 1816 and moved to this state when 20 years of age, settling with his parents in Putnam county. After twenty years residence in that county he came to Decatur and has since made his home here. He was elected to the office of justice of the peace and for eighteen successive years held that office. Eleven years ago, then an old man, he retired from the office and since that time had lived a retired life making his home with his brother-in-law, Berry Cassell, on Cassell's Hill. The deceased was a member of Celestial Lodge No. 65, I.O.O.F. and that organization will be in charge of the preparations for the funeral, the time to be announced later. Mr. Albert is survived by a wife and two daughters, Mrs. H. M. Obendorfer and Miss Sallie Albert, both residing at Milwaukee. He is survived by nine grandchildren and one brother, Jacob Albert of Long Creek township."
