"Thomas C. Wall---A feeling of sadness fell over our city when the news was heralded last Wednesday afternoon that Thomas C. Wall was dead. Mr. Wall had been confined to his home for several weeks with a complication of diseases, but a few days before the end came he was thought to be improving. Thomas C. Wall was born in Graham County, N.C., April 1, 1877, and departed this life at his home at Madisonville, Tenn., June 9, 1926, being 49 years, 3 months and 13 days old. He was married to Miss Ida Cureton, of Newport, Tenn., Dec. 22, 1914. He leaves to mourn his death a mother, wife and daughter, two brothers and three sisters. He professed faith in Christ and united with the Baptist Church of Madisonville some ten years ago under the pastorate of Bro. Miles, and lived a consecrated Christian life to the end of his earthly pilgrimage. He belonged to the order of Free and Accepted Masons and was a member of the Amra Grotto. He has been a resident of Madisonville for the past 18 years and was serving his third term as mayor of the town. Being a member of the civic club, he was deeply interested in the welfare of the town. Funeral services were conducted Friday morning at 10 o'clock from the Baptist Church in this city by Dr. J.E. Lowry, of Hiwassee College, after which his remains were laid to rest in the city cemetery. The wife, daughter and other relatives have the sympathy of all in their bereavement."
Great Grandson of Thomas & Ida Cureton Wall.
