NORTON, Thomas Marion - Thomas Marion Norton was born July 18, 1854 in New York City and died April 24, 1912. He spent his early life in New York City and after the death of his mother he came west, married, and made it his home. He was taken sick at Tulsa, Okla. and when informed that his malady would prove fatal he requested the brothers of the W.O.W. to bring him home where he might spend the last hours with his family at the farm east of Gravette. Although his suffering was great he bore it with fortitude and told his family he was only waiting his Saviour's call. He united with the Baptist church in 1900 and had after lived a faithful christian life. He leaves a wife, 1 son and 5 daughters to mourn their loss. Rev. Wm. Edwards of Hiwasse conducted the funeral and the body was placed in Mt. Pleasant cemetery.
