THOMAS CAMPBELL DEAD

Thomas CAMPBELL, who came to Higbee about a year ago to make his home with his son, Dr. R. C. CAMPBELL, died on the 20th, after an illness of several months. Funeral services were held at the home of Dr. CAMPBELL Saturday by Rev. C. K. SHILLING and interment made in the Burton cemetery. We take the following from the Mount Ayr, Iowa, Record:

Thos. CAMPBELL was born in Quincy, Florida, January 19, 1845. He came with his father to Ringgold county in the early 60's, when sixteen years of age, and settled in Lotts Creek township. For a number of years he worked on the farm and taught school. He was married to Miss Olive BULLINGTON in 1867 and established a home in Lotts Creek township, where he resided until after his election to the office of county treasurer for ten years, being elected on the Republican ticket five successive times. He was a faithful, conscientious and painstaking officer and ever commanded the respect and confidence of the people of the county. Mr. CAMPBELL was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church and of the Odd Fellows lodge, being a member of the Mount Ayr Lodge No. 169 at the time of his death.

He is survived by his life companion, seven sons -- Thomas of Omaha, Neb., Cecil of Rawlins, Wyo., Lee and Roy of Seattle, Wash., M. A. of West Liberty, Iowa, Lawrence of Kellerton, Iowa, and Ross of Higbee, Mo; one daughter -- Mrs. Lou WOLFE of Moberly, Mo; one brother -- William of Craighton, Neb.; one sister--Mrs. H. C. ANDREWS of Kearney, Neb.; three half brothers -- J. M. and C. a. of Mount Ayr and L. M. of Chariton and two half sisters who reside in Oklahoma.
