Mr. Thom was born in Scotland 72 years ago and came to Minnesota in 1857, locating near Owatonna. With the early settlers in '72 he came with his family to Nobles county and settled on the farm where he has ever since resided. He was one of the largest farmers in this part of the state for several years, farming over seventeen hundred acres of land. Mr. Thom was a good manager and was always successful in whatever he undertook. At the time of his death he was president of the First National Bank organized at Rushmore in 1902. He leaves a wife and seven children to mourn his loss.
Mr. Thom was a devout christian and an active member of the Presbyterian church at Rushmore, where the funeral sermon was given by the Rev. Gibb at 1 o'clock Tuesday. The church was far too small to hold those who came to pay their last respects, and many were turned away.

On Sunday morning at 7 o'clock occurred the death of Thomas Fletcher living six miles north east of Rushmore. Deceased was sick but a few days and many are surprise to hear of the death which was caused by pneumonia contracted from a sudden cold. Mr. Fletcher is sixty years of age and leaves a wife and eight children, two of whom reside in Iowa, but who arrived before their father passed away. Mr. Fletcher came to Nobles County in 1902 and purchased what is known as the Kerr farm and two years ago made an exchange for the farm on which he now lives.

Mr. Gillis delivering the sermon, and remains placed in the Rushmore cemetery.
The death of Mr. Fletcher come particularly hard as the family of young folks at home is of the age when they need a father's love. But death comes often at the time when we expect it not and only the Mighty One is able to foretell the call. Mr. Fletcher had one of the finest farms in the county and took particular pride in making a pleasant home for his family. He had just completed improvements on his farm and especially a large barn.
