BURROUGHS, Thomas - Thomas Burroughs, an old Union soldier, died at his home in Bentonville Sunday after a long illness. The funeral services were held at the home Monday afternoon and were conducted by Rev. O.A. Fortune, pastor of the Methodist church. Interment was made in the City Cemetery with the I.O.O.F. having charge of the services at the grave. Mr. Burroughs was born at sea off the coast of Nova Scotia in 1839. His father was a seaman and his mother accompanied the sailor on his voyages. In his early boyhood his parents moved from the Atlantic coast to Michigan where they lived until the outbreak of the war between the states. In 1861, then a young man, he volunteered in the Union Army and joined the Michigan infantry. The following three years he was in active service and was thrice wounded in battle. With the close of the war he left Michigan and moved to Ohio. It was during his life in Ohio that he met and married Mrs. Elizabeth Larrow. Later he moved to Illinois and from thence to Kansas. After a sojourn in that state he came to Arkansas where he located in Bentonville and where he has lived for nearly forty years. He was a member of the Christian church, although he had been unable to attend for a number of years, and the local Order of Odd Fellows. Mrs. Burroughs died in 1909 and two years later he married Mrs. G.W. Smith of Bentonville. Besides his widow he is survived by five step-daughters, Mrs. J.W. Mountain and Mrs. J.T. Flanigan of Bentonville, Mrs. W.M. Watkins of Webb City, Mrs. Bert Spence of Whitfield, Okla. and Mrs. Lydia Banks, Dixon, Tenn., and one step-son, George Smith of Bentonville.
