Rogers friends of Joseph Thomas, who lived just south of Rogers on the old Daughetry farm, were shocked to learn of his sudden death last Friday morning. He had gone to bed in his usual good health but when his wife went to call him she found he had expired sometime during the night. Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at 2:30 at the Baptist church at Lowell and burial was in the McDaniel cemetery. Mr. Thomas was born in Texas county, Mo. May 5, 1872 and died August 27th at the age of 54 years, three months and twenty-two days. He came to Arkansas with his parents at the age of five years and had since made his home here. He was baptised in the First Baptist church at Lowell July 25, 1922 and had since lived a Christian life. Mr. Thomas was married to Louisa Duffer February 22, 1909 and to this union were born six children, one dying in infancy. He is survived by his wife and five children: Georgia Marie, 16 years old; Joseph Shufert, 14; William John, 8; Virginia Viola, 3 and Pauline Evaline, 13 months. He is survived by his mother and two brothers, George and Sterling, both of them living near Lowell and one sister, Mrs. Rosey King of Springfield, Mo. He was a most excellent citizen and neighbor and his untimely death is deplored by all who knew him.
