SUCCUMBED TO PNEUMONIA
Thos Pickle Passed Away at His Home in Liberty Valley
It was quite a surprise to many people here when it was learned Saturday that Mr. Thos. Pickle had died at his home in Liberty Valley the preceding night. It was not known that he was seriously sick, but he was afflicted with pneumonia, and it rapidly developed a serious phase.
Mr. Pickle was 81 years old, and possessed wonderful vitality for a man of his years. In 1840 he was married to Miss Lucinda B. Stephenson. In 1875, some time after the death of his first wife, he was married to Miss Virginia O. Swiney, who survives him. By both unions he had 20 children, seventeen of whom are living and were in attendance at his funeral.
Mr. Pickle was a man of considerable wealth, and used it in a very beneficial manner. No man ever rightfully accused Thos. Pickle of [unreadable]. He loaned his money on reasonable security at reasonable interest, and many a man has been helped by his kindness. His dealings were always liberal, and those having business with him, having an opportunity to know him intimately, were his best friends.
Funeral services were concucted [sic] at the home Saturday by Rev. [M.?] M. Crawford and his remains laid to rest in Round Hill Cemetery.
