Clayton County Register, Thur., 19 Oct. 1933. Volga column.

Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at the Methodist church here for Cecil Thyer, 50, who passed away at his home Sunday evening. Rev. A. B. Chamberlain, pastor, officiated at the services and at Hill Crest cemetery, where interment was made. The casket was supported by A. L. Moats, M. J. Hannon, Claude Miles, Arthur Chappell, George and Joseph Oldfather.

Mr. Thyer was the youngest son, one of nine children born to Joseph and Mary Thyer, born August 6, 1883, in Glastonbury, Somersetshire, England. At the age of nine he started out to make his own living by working for a market gardener for a time, then in a canning factory for a few years, one year in the Great Eastern Locomotive works in Stratford, London, with most of the remainder of his time in England at Harniman's Tea Packing House. In the spring of 1909 he decided to come to America and on March 20th landed in New York City, where he stayed a few days to visit his sister Mabel, who was living there at the time. He arrived at Volga March 26, 1909, and immediately started working for Mark Fairbairn, with whom he remained for three years. Then, when Mr. Fairbairn decided to quit farming, he went to work for R. D. White, until the latter part of October.

On December 3, 1912, he was united in marriage to Miss Minnie Revell. To this union were born seven children, May, Florence, James, Frank, Opal, Ernest and Charles. He bought the home place before he was married and had worked hard to be able to call it his own, and to which he had added many improvements.

He was baptized in the church of England and was a true Christian man, honest in all his dealings, and his last words were the Lord's Prayer. On January 2nd he took to his bed and was there practically all the time since.

Those lift to mourn are the widow and six children, Charles having preceded the father in death about 17 months ago. Four sisters survive, Mrs. Walter Everett of this place, Mrs. May Turner of London, England; Mrs. Ethel Rednay and Mrs. Anne Tarde of Sidney, Australia; one brother, Fred Thyer, of London, England.

His father and mother, two brothers, Charles and John, and one sister, Mrs. Charlotte Webb, preceded him in death.
