Thomas J. Blevins ~ ~ ~ 1851-1898 Newkirk Republican October 7, 1898 Submitted by: Shirley Harlan
Thomas J. Blevins died at his home in this city. In the death of T. J. Blevins, Newkirk has lost one of her best citizens. He was at all times ready and willing to respond to the call for aid for the needy and those in distress. He had labored hard to procure a comfortable home for his family and just as his labor had given him what he had wrought, he was called to the Celestial Home to work in the sight of his Supreme Master.
The funeral services were held at the Presbyterian Church at 2 p.m. Rev. Moore preaching the sermon. After which the remains were taken in charge by the Masonic Order, of whom he was the Worshipful Master. The impressive rites of the order fittingly laid to rest a prominent and useful citizen of our town who had been with it from the first.
The immediate cause of his death was a collapse following a severe attack of pneumonia. He leaves a family to mourn the loss of a father.
