THOMISON, Linzy

Linzy Thomison was born in Henry county, Indiana, May 16, 1836. In early life moved to the state of Illinois and was married to Mrs. Mary Phillips, Sept. 12, 1857. The next year he moved to Iowa and resided there until 1865 when he moved to Kansas settling on his claim on Wilson creek. He since has lived for a time both in Iowa and western Kansas but returned to Pottawatomie county 12 years ago and has resided here ever since. He was converted during a protracted- meeting held in the old stone schoolhouse in Westmoreland nearly 40 years ago and has since lived to prove the worth of a Savior's love. He died at his home in town Sunday, September 19. His last hours were times of peace and joy. He selected the hymns and scripture for his funeral and in every way gave evidence that full preparation was made. Brother Thomison leaves a wife, 5 children, 21 grand-children and three great grand-children, besides a host of friends to mourn his loss. The funeral services were held in the M. E. church at Westmoreland and were conducted by Rev. C. B. Young of Quenemo, his former pastor, assisted by Rev. G. W. Stafford, pastor of the church. The text used for the message was one that the deceased had chosen, it being Rev. 2:14. Mr. and Mrs. Thomison celebrated their Golden Wedding in this city two years ago the 12th of this month. The five living children are Mrs. Lydia Gard, Mrs. E. P. Tibbette, Alice Thomison, Curtis Thomison of Talmage, Kansas, and Rev. Howard Thomison of Morrison, Okla. The last named is one of the prominent preachers of the Oklahoma conference. All the children were present at the funeral. While Bro. Thomison left no material wealth to his children, he left them a richer legacy than any Harriman, Gould or Vanderbilt. Interment was in the old Westmoreland cemetery.

TIEKING, Herman

Tragic end to long search for Herman Tieking, 80, more than 200 help hunt An 18 hour search for Herman Tieking, 80 came to a tragic end early Sunday afternoon when his body was found on the Raymond Duncan farm southwest of Westmoreland. Mrs. Duncan found the body, a short distance away from an outbuilding, shortly after noon. Before the body was found, it was estimated that 200 men and boys including the Explorer Scout and Boy Scouts troops of Westmoreland, were searching in every direction for traces of Mr. Tieking. Also assisting in the search were perhaps 25 horsemen, mostly members of the Westmoreland Saddle Club and an Army helicopter from Marshall Field. Mr. Tieking wandered away from his home shortly before dark Saturday evening, when his son, Fred, was assisting a neighbor start an engine. Although the younger Mr. Tieking was gone less than 5 minutes, no trace of his father could be found on his return. A search party of neighbors was immediately organized, and the Westmoreland fire department was called later in the evening. The search continued through the night and when Mr. Tieking had not been found by Sunday morning, help from the entire community was asked. There was little hope that Mr. Tieking would be found alive, since had rained intermittedly during the night, and the night was cold. Mr. Tieking was in frail health, and it could not be expected that he would survive exposure. The body was found about two and a half miles northeast from the Tieking home. Most of the search had been to the west, and north and south from the house, with most searchers beginning from the corner of the Jenkins Cemetery. The body was found a quarter mile north of the cemetery. Don Reves, undersheriff, praised the cooperation shown by the people, not only from the immediate community, but also many from a considerable distance who heard of the search and offered assistance. Many of the ladies of the community prepared food, and served the searchers uring and after the search. Services were held Wednesday afternoon at the Westmoreland Methodist Church and burial was in the Jenkins Cemetery. Rev. J. A. Robertson officiated, and Barnes Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements. Source: Westmoreland Recorder, Thursday, September 24, 1964, front page Submitted by: Bev Bird
