WELL KNOWN FARMER DIES - JOHN W. THOMAS, 77, SUCCUMBS AT HOME NEAR CALVARY SUNDAY MORNING
John W. Thomas, 77 years old, a well known citizen of the Calvary community, who had been ill at his home on the Phillipsburg Road for several weeks, died at 3:20 o'clock Sunday morning. Death was due to heart trouble and other complications. His condition had been critical since he was stricken, and little hope was held for his recovery. A son of the late Robert and Susan Spalding Thomas, deceased, was born October 27, 1856, in the community in which he died and where since a young boy he had been engaged in farming. He was a kind husband and father, and was honest and just in all his dealings. On November 8, 1881, Mr. Thomas was united in marriage to Miss Mary Catherine Wathen, the wedding taking place at Holy Mary's Church at Calvary. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in November, 1931. Nine children were born to the union. One son and one daughter passed away a number of years ago. The surviving children are: Mrs. Frank Lee, Mrs. Walter Spalding, Mrs. J. Thomas, Mrs. Ben Jarboe and John H. Thomas, all of this county; W. R. Thomas of Indianapolis, Ind., and James Thomas of Tampa, Fla. He is also survived by one sister, Mrs. Ben J. Luckett of this county and two brothers, G. W. Thomas of this county and Joe Thomas of Owensboro, and twenty-five grandchildren. Funeral services, conducted by Rev. J. P. Welsh, were held Tuesday morning at 9:00 o'clock at Holy Mary's Church at Calvary, of which he was a devout member, and burial was in Holy Name of Mary Cemetery. The pallbearers were: Oscar Spalding, Robert Thomas, Edward Lee, Thomas Lee, Curtis Jarboe and James Spalding.
