a straw stack. Mr. Tnorne was on
the wagon loading, and some straw
fell off the stack on the horses and
started them. Mr. Thome sprang to

of the load slipped with him and he
fell behind the horses, headforcmest

I with a wire fence and stopped with
little damage. The man ran to the
barn, took a horse and went in haste
to town and reported the accident, all
that could get a horse or aid, with his
son Legrande hastened to the scene
of the accident, and there to behold
lay the lifeless body of the aged
father and neighbor. He was borne
to the tiouse to tne surprise
of his wife who but
short time before saw him strolling
about the barn. His wounds were
dressed by Dr. Kchler and others.
His brother of Macon, Franklia coun
ty, and relatives of Juniata, Camp
bell and Hastings, were informed of
the sad intelligence. Arrangements
were perfected for the interment.
Toe funeral services were officiated at
his tome by Rev. Buzzle, on Wed
nesday at 2 o'clock, p. in. and from
there followed Ly nearly 50 buggies
tad wagons. The Grand Armj men
marehed to the grave on foot, located
in a beautiful nook in the soatkeast
corner of his son Willie's orchard far
the present at least. Wm. B. Thome
was bom in the state of New York,
June 29th, 1815. In 1S38 was mar
ried to his present wife, Miss Deborah
Bowcrman. After nine years, remov
ed to and selected a home in the then
wild woods of.Michigan. He marked
his pathway by blaizcd trees for 80
miles through dense forests, located
near where the city of Jackson .now
stands. In 1870 he and his son Wil
lie took a four to Nebraska, and was
so agreeably surprised with the theu
young state that they each took large
tracts of land and then returned to
Michigan. Thefoilovingseason they
removed to their new homes in the
.west, at or near wcre iLptarfjinw
located, followed by many taorc of
Michigan's good people. Later his
eldest son Lecrandc removed here
and bought several tracts of land, but
through sickness in his family he up
turned to Michigan and in later years
returned to Nebraska his future
home. His family consisted of his
two sons, Legrande and Wm. and an
adopted niece, now Mrs. Dr. ckl. of
Juniata. The father and two sons
