Thursday, March 22, 1883
In Memoriam. (sic)
Thomas Higson died at Minneapolis January 21st, 1883, of typhoid fever, nearly 33 years of age. He was of English nativity. In boyhood always thoughtful and steady, in manhood quiet and unassuming. He came to Omro about 16 years ago, and has ever been identified as an uncompromising christian citizen; was member of the M. E. church and choir, and was very highly respected by all. He had only resided in Minnesota ten months, before the summons arrived to call him to his Heavenly home. With the assurance of his departure came also a very joyous assurance of his triumph over death and the grave. He exclamed (sic) “all is well, the way is bright.” He repeatedly joined in singing some of the most beautiful hymns of trust in Jesus. His father arrived a few hours before his death. Being too weak to speak he lovingly pressed the fatherly hand; sight failing, he motioned for his spectacles to take a last look at his earthly parent, as he passed over into the arms of his Heavenly one. At his request his remains were brought to Omro for burial, and the large attendance at the funeral indicated that the attachmet (sic) was mutual. He leaves a father, mother, brother, sister, wife and adopted daughter, with many very dear friends to mourn his loss, and to share our sympathy.
