Thomas Crisman

In Memoriam.
Thomas Crisman was born in Huntington co., Penn., August 13th, 1805. On November 25th, 1830, he was married to Nancy Ringle of Westmoreland Co., Penna. As a result of this union thirteen children were born, nine of whom survive. In 1818 the family removed to Carroll Co., Ohio, where he lived until 1850, when he settled on the farm in Union township, Porter co., Ind. on which he has since resided. Uncle Tommy as he was mostly called has been failing in health for the last 4 or 5 years. On the 4th of last November he was persuaded by his friends to go to the polls to vote. As Uncle Tommy has always been one of the strongest Republicans in this neighborhood he consented to go. He made the remark that he guessed that it would be his last ride. So John Small Jr. hitched up in his father's buggy and took him to the polls. When he came back he said he felt a little sick so he went to bed and on last Wednesday evening at quarter to 10 his spirit passed to God who gave it. Thus has passed away the father endeared by much care, the loving, appreciative friend. His mission is ended, his conflicts are passed, his last hours were not so much harrassed by physical suffering as was feared. The poor body waisted by pain and inability to retain nourishment, grew weaker in its vital forces until they ceased to act, and as one sinking to slumber, Wednesday evening June 24th his spirit took its flight mid the mating song of birds to join in the sweeter song of the redeemed above. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. D. W. Andrews of the band. His remains were followed by a large concourse of relatives and friends to their last resting place in the Mosier grave-yard.

Dearest father thou hast left us,
And thy loss we deeply feel,
But we know t'was God bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal.
