Obituary3 December 18963 December 1896, Port Chester, Westchester County, New York, Port Chester Journal Obituary:. Death of a Good Man

Thomas G. Willson Dead

In our issue of last week which went to press on Wednesday afternoon, we announced the serious illness of Mr. Thomas G. Willson, of King Street, from inflammatory rheumatism. While it was known that the good citizen was in a very serious condition, none of his many warm friends believed that the end was so near. On Wednesday, the 25th of November, his condition in the afternoon had apparently improved so much that it was believed that the worst period of the malady had been passed. But this seeming improvement was delusive, and on Thursday morning his condition became alarming, and about half past eleven that morning he quietly fell asleep in the everlasting rest.

We believe there are few residents of the Town of Rye that was better or more favorably known than Thomas G. Willson. Born on King Street, on the property now owned by Thomas G. Sutton, about 61 years ago, he had attended school in the same district, one of his classmates being Mr. Wilfred P. Purdy, the real estate agent and insurance broker of Port Chester. He had never lived anywhere else but in that immediate neighborhood. The son of a farmer, he loved the farm and field, and though for a while he was lured into business in Port Chester, being associated with Mr. Wm. G. Kraft, also of King Street, he soon returned to his loved farm and its complete surroundings.

It is said that a man must go away from home to reach preference and station. It was not so with Thomas G. Willson...." The obituary continues to detail his activity as Highway Commissioner and school trustee, his perfect home life, moral qualities, etc.

"Mr. Willson is survived by a widow, one daughter, Mrs. Jennie Merritt, wife of Mr. Freeman H. Merritt, of White Plains; Mr. W. James Willson, of North Greenwich, and Mr. Jay G. Willson, who has always resided at the home of his parents."

The funeral services at his residence were described, conducted by the Rev. Mr. Magill of Emmanuel Chapel, Riversville and Rev. Mr. Abbott of the King Street M.E. Church. "Interment was in the Baptist Cemetery, adjoinging the Anderson Burying Ground, almost opposite the Willson farm." Pallbearers listed were town functionaries.5
