Thomas Stine
August 27, 1846–March 7, 1892
Mr. Thos. Stine died at his home in Scotch Grove, March 7, 1892, in his 46th year. The funeral services will take place in the Presbyterian church to-day at 2 p.m. The deceased was born in Germany, August 27, 1846. When six years old he came with his parents to New York city, thence in 1856 to Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. From Mt. Pleasant he moved with his parents to Ottumwa, Ia., in 1858. In this year his mother died, the family was broken up and Mr. Stine was thrown upon his own resources to make his way in the world as best he could. In 1876 he was married to Mrs. S. J. Webster, who with seven children survive him. Mr. Stine was an honest, industrious man, laboring hard to support his family. About a year ago the symptoms of the disease which caused his death appeared and since that time he has been a constant sufferer.
