Thomas Hall

Death of an Old Soldier.
The death of Thomas Hall occurred last Wednesday on Morgan Prairie at the residence of his mother-in-law Mrs. Baum. Mr. Hall was formerly a resident of Valparaiso, where he had a large circle of friends and several relatives. He was forty years of age at the time of his death. He has for a long time been a confirmed invalid being in a decline from the effects of disease which no doubt was contracted by exposure while serving in the army. His death was the direct result of paralysis. Mr. Hall enlisted in the army from Valparaiso at the beginning of the war and served faithfully tills its close.

Eight of his old comrades, William C. Wells, Robert McNay, Lafayette Massey, D. C. Herr, John Billideau, H. Keyes, J. J. Ferris and Capt. H. M. Buel, attended the funeral, last Thursday, from this city and served as pall bearers at the burial of their friend. The funeral sermon was preached in the Adams church by Rev. H. B. Davis, pastor of the Christian church of this city. A wife, a mother, and two brothers of Mr. Hall remain to mourn his departure.
