The Appeal (Saint Paul, MN), 18 Nov 1899:
"The sad news was borne all over the city of the death of one of the old residents of St. Paul, Thomas H. Griswold, who departed life Nov. 9, leaving a wife and two daughters to mourn his loss. Mr. Griswold came to St. Paul in the early days with his family. He was a man of good character, and one of the foremost to engage in all pertaining to the social welfare and good of the citizens of St. Paul. His health had not been very good for the last two years, and he went West in the hopes of recruiting the same, in which he was successful for a time, but sickness laid hold of him, not confining him to his bed, so he returned to St. Paul, and was here only a short time - two weeks - before he took to his bed, never to rise again, after an illness of twelve weeks. His end was peaceful, and his soul returned to his Maker, who had ever been present with him during the last weeks of his sickness. He was a Christian belonging to the Baptist church in Nashville, Tenn. ...

His remains were brought to Pilgrim Baptist church, and Rev. D.S. Orner and J.C. Anderson preached the sermon. The choir sang as seldom before, and the "Homeland," sung by Mrs. R.C. Minor, and "Rock of Ages," sung by Mr. Allen French, brought tears to many eyes besides the mourners. The body was taken to its last resting place at Oakland cemetery by Mars Lodge, of which he was a member..."
