THE WESTERN STAR, 3 January 1902
Obituary of THOMAS A. WILLIAMS
Thomas A. Williams

DIED
Williams - At his home in Powell tp., Comanche co., Kansas, On Monday, December 30, 1901, Thomas A. Williams, aged 74 years, 2 months and 21 days.

Deceased had been in quite poor health for two months or more before his death, which occurred at 10 a.m. on last Monday. A combination of diseases - producing a severe case of dropsy - was the cause of his death. Funeral services were held at the residence and were conducted by Rev. A. Burrill, of the U. B. church. Interment took place on Tuesday afternoon in the Coldwater cemetery.

Thos. A. Williams was born October 9, 1827. He moved when quite young with his father to Macon co., Missouri, and afterwards to Putnam co., that state. Later he moved to Taylor co., Iowa, where he lived for 25 years. In the spring of 1891 he moved to Comanche co., settling on Mule creek, where he resided until the time of his death. He leaves a wife and five children - Jas. M., T.E., John M., Martha N. and Mrs. Willa A.
Willard. Since 1869 the deceased had been a member of the Christain church. In his death we are reminded of the apparently rapid taking away of the older class of settlers in Comanche co. The bereaved relatives have the sincere sympathy of all.
