Thirty-five years ago he came to Benton county where he resided up to the time of his death. He was an enterprising man with a strong moral character, holding many officers of trust and confidence and always to the credit of himself and many friends. He was a member of the Society of Friends, under whose auspices the funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock from the meeting house. The deceased leaves a wife to whom he was married in 1862, and three sons, Thomas T. Strand, Jr., Andrew and Benjamin, three daughters and a son having previously died.
