THOMAS WELKER ADDLESBERGER, a bachelor, who formerly resided with his sister, Mrs. Emma Smith, deceased, died Thursday at 10:45 p.m. at his home, North Church street. He was aged 73 years, 2 months and 6 days.
Mr. Addlesberger was one of thirteen children born to Richard and Elizabeth Addlesberger, of town, and resided here all his life. He was a plasterer by trade and when not occupied at his trade, he did odd jobs around town, such as white washing.
A year ago last May, Mr. Addlesberger, while rising from bed early in the morning, suffered an attack of vertigo and fell to the floor, sustaining several broken ribs. Last June, while picking cherries at his home, he fell from the
ladder to the ground and, from that time on, was in declining health.
Friday evening, the day of the death of his sister, he suffered a stroke and was unconscious until Tuesday morning, when he rallied and was able to take nourishment. Tuesday evening he again became unconscious and remained in that condition until his death.
He is survived by one sister, Mrs. Rebecca Metz, Bloomington, Ill., who is 71 years of age.
Funeral services at the house at 4 o'clock Sunday afternoon, conducted by Rev. Vaughn T. Rue. Interment in Burns Hill cemetery.
