The death of Tom C. Stewart, of Deerhead, occurred on Sunday morning, February 22, 1903. It was very sudden. Pneumonia was the cause of death. He was sick only a few days.
Funeral services were held on Tuesday at Lake City.
The deceased was about 60 years of age. He was a native of West Virginia. He has resided in Barber county for many years and was especially well known in the western part. Uncle Tom was a man of genial nature and a warm heart.
He leaves a wife, two sons and a daughter - George and Ross Stewart and Mrs. G. W. Phillips.
The bereaved family have our deepest sympathy.
