"Learning that his son was rapidly declining, Mr. Potter went home early in the fall.

The young man passed away on the 11th of November, 1875. Death chooses a shining mark, as little hands love to pluck the prettiest flowers. That young man was truly a noble youth. Fond of reading, he had stored his young mind with a knowledge of books not often surpassed by those of his age; but alas! as a flower blooming lovely in the morn, he fell into decay ere the coating of the evening."

Taken from Frontier Times Magazine; May 1933, Vol. 10, No. 8; pp 366-367

Thomas died, according to Rev. Potter's biographer, of tuberculosis.
