Solomon Thomas
November 11, 1808–April 24, 1880

Died. Husband of Eliza Ann Thomas;
Father of George A. Thomas

Mr. Solomon Thomas, of Cass, sent to Independence last winter on account of derangement, died at the Asylum last Saturday and was brought home and buried Tuesday [in Cass Cemetery], the Rev. Bishop Isbell preaching the funeral sermon. As we had occasion to remark at the time of Mr. Thomas' removal from his home, he was one of the oldest and most esteemed citizens of the county, and this sad ending of a useful life has brought sorrow to many hearts. He accumulated a considerable compentency by his industry and good management and leaves his family in very comfortable circumstances. His age was over 71, and an aged companion and five grown-up sons and daughters mourn his sad death.
