J. Thomas Drummond was born in Tennessee, July 18, 1845, and died at his home in Warren, Ark.,
Dec. 16, 1909. He was married to Mary E. McClain, July 26, 1866, and together they lived in
peace and love for over forty years. To them were born seven children of whom only one is now
living. He served through the Civil War as Confederate soldier, entered the service when a
boy of sixteen. He was a Methodist, having united with the church in early life. Papa is with
us no more. Yet he speaketh by the example of the beautiful and noble life he lived before us.
No home was ever made sadder by the loss of its leader than ours for truly he did rule well
his own household, and no wa (sic) place is made vacant which never can be filled. To give
him up seemed almost more than mama and I could bear, yet we try to say, "Lord thy will be
done." To mama he was ever faithful and true, and to me he was a good father, indeed no girl
ever had a better one. I am thankful for his life, thankful that I bear his name, and pray
God to help me keep it spotless.
