AT REST - Thomas J. Norwood departed this life March 7, 1933; age 92 yrs., 8 mos., and 27 days. He was married to Elizabeth Pinkston about 70 years ago. She preceded him to her grave about 14 years. To this union were born four children, but all except one child, a daughter, Mrs. Martha Ann Clark, have passed to the great beyond. He is also survived by a number of grandchildren, also great grandchildren, and a number of great, great grandchildren, and a number of relatives and friends to mourn his death. He was kind and gentle; always patient. Through his sickness he oftentirne spoke of his eternal home, and of meeting loved ones in their heavenly mansion. It was sad to give him up, but our loss is his gain. His eye sight almost completely left him about ten years ago. But he has gone to live where the blind shall receive their sight, for "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God." He enlisted in the Federal army when a young man, and was a noble, brave soldier throughout the war. He was captured and put in prison at Andersonville, Ga. There he suffered untold agonies for several long months. He professed faith in Christ more than threescore years ago, and had been a member of the Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist church over 50 years, and was a faithful member until death. He was laid to rest on March 8 in the Butler cemetery, with funeral services conducted by the Rev. Walter Joyner.
