On Monday afternoon, February 6th, at his home on East Mission street, in this city, occured the funeral of Mr. Thomas J. Scott, one of the od settlers in this part of the county.
Thos. J. Scott was born at East Gainsville, New York, March 20th, 1833. He spent his early life there, coming to Iowa in 1858.
He was united in marriage to Mary J. True, January 30th, 1859. To this union six children were given: Eliza E. who died in childhood; Hiram W. of Grover, South Dakota; Thomas G. of Blue Earth, Minnesota; George W.; Mrs. Nettie R. Kellogg and Mrs. Edith Bronson of this place.
Two brothers survive him, Winchester E. of Atwater, Wisconsin, and Lafayette, of Freeborn, Minnesota, who with the members of the family and many relatives and friends are left to mourn his loss.
Like many others who listened to his country's call he enlisted in Co. L, Sixth Iowa Cavalry, May 10th, 1862, and was discharged December 15th, 1865. He served with the regiment under Gen. Sully in the campaigns against the Indians of the northwest, in Dakota, during the years 1863, 1864 and 1865.
Up to last December he resided on his farm near town. He purchased a house in town on East Mission Street, and moved into the same only a few weeks ago. Shortly afterward he was taken with a severe illness, and he continued to grow worse until death ended his sufferings on Sunday last.
Mr. Scott was well known in Cass and adjoining townships, where he has made his home for forth-seven years. He was an honest, straightforward man, a kind father and husband, and he had won the confidence of all who who knew him. His death brings sorrow to many.
