THE BUTLER HERALD - Thursday, May 9, 1918
DEATH OF MR. T.B. THEUS
On Friday afternoon about four o'clock occurred the death of Mr. T.B. Theus.

He had been sick about two weeks, and all the physicians and loved ones could do was in vain. His Master called and he was ready to go "enter the joy of His Lord" who had guided and led him through life.

He was born August 7th, 1841 and peacefully passed into the keeping of his Savior May 3rd, 1918. In his death Taylor County loses another veteran of the Civil War, his wife a devoted husband, and children a loving father.
Oh, it is hard to part with loved ones, but we hope by the grace of God we may meet in the heaven of eternal rest. He was a member of the Primitive Baptist Church, and was true to the faith in which he believed.

He is survived by a broken-hearted wife, ten children, and several grandchildren, all residing in this state. One sister, Mrs. J.P. Starr and two brothers, R.A. Theus and G. W. Theus, of Texas.

His remains were laid to rest in Bethlehem cemetery Saturday afternoon, funeral services being conducted by Elder Young.
