OBITUARY

Thomas S. WAIGHT was born in the town of Melksham and County of Wiltshire, England, on the 11th day of June, 1834, departed this life at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Robert SHAFER, near Redding, Iowa on Saturday, October 13th, 1917 at the age of 82 years and 5 months. He was united in marriage to Emily Millard KELSON in the month of August, 1867 and to this union were born eight children, two of whom died in infancy leaving six surviving to mourn his loss: Thomas Edward, Emily Elizabeth FARMER, Jessie Annie SHAFER, George Earnest, Charles Henry, and Mary Agnes KNIGHT.

He embraced Christianity in early life and throughout his earthly career adhered strictly to the principles which were eminently exemplified in his death as a Christian. During the last 6 or 7 years of his life he made his home principally with his niece, Mrs. George W. PENNIWELL, of Leon, Iowa, where he was intimately known and loved by all.

Funeral services were held in the M.E. Church at Redding, Iowa and the remains buried at the Middlefork Cemetery.
