Noah Thomas, who has been sick for several months, died at his home northeast of Stockville, last Saturday.
Since the death of his wife in December 1899, Mr. Thomas has been unable to take interest in worldly affairs, but bore his afflictions with true Christian fortitude.
He came to Frontier County in February 1892, and has resided here from that time.
Four children survive his death but they mourn not as those without hope, for “Blessed are they who die in the Lord.”
The remains were shipped to Lerna, Coles Co., Illinois, being accompanied by a daughter, Martha Thomas.
Mr. Thomas was well known in this vicinity as a good man and in his death we lose a good citizen. He became a church member at an early age and lived a consistent Christian life.
He was a soldier of the Civil War, being a member of Company E 5th Illinois Cavalry.
(Noah Thomas was born in Crawford County, Indiana, September 3, 1837. Moved to Coles County, Illinois, in 1847. Was married to Miss Nan Dryden, December 28, 1865. Moved to Frontier County, Nebraska, February 1892. Died at Stockville, August 22, 1903, aged 68 years, 11 months and 12 days.)
The relatives wish to thank their many friends for the kindness shown and the assistance rendered during the long sickness, and death of the departed one.
The Republican, Stockville, NE; August 27, 1903
