Millard County Chronicle


Thomas Lionel Watson, a resident of Delta for the past thirty years, died in his sleep early Monday morning of a heart condition. Mr. Watson appeared in good health and his sudden death was a shock to his family and many friends.

He was born in Mt. Pleasant, June 15, 1893, a son of Sophia Hansen Watson and John J. Watson.

He was fifty-three years old at the time of his death. His early life was spent in Mt. Pleasant and he came into west Millard forty years ago to work with his father in raising livestock. His father has had interest here since 1898. About thirty yeas ago, Mr. Watson made his home in Delta, coming here to work on the sugar factory ranch, which he managed for some years. Later he worked as a carpenter and the past few years has been employed at the Tri-State Lumber Company.

Mr. Watson was married to Miss May Dame of Meadow, who died in Delta years ago. Their three children, Mrs. Dorothy Barber of Oasis, Mrs. Maxine Mills and Thomas E. Watson of Delta are surviving.

Several years after the death of his wife, he married to Nell McCullough Sampson and she and their two daughters, Opal Jean and Helen May Watson, live in Delta.

He is also survived by his father, John J. Watson and three grandchildren.

Funeral services will be conducted by A.O. Gardner, Bishop, on Thursday at 2 p.m. in the Delta First Ward Chapel, under the direction of L.N. Nickle and Sons. Burial will be in the cemetery in Mt. Pleasant on Friday, with graveside services at 1 p.m.
