March 15, 1883
We are called upon to chronicle the death of Thomas Reid, on Saturday of last week. Mr. Reid has been in very poor health for a long time, the result, undoubtedly, of incarceration in rebel prisons during the war, barely escaping with his life, and from which he had never fully recovered. He was one of the best machinists in the country, and has for several years carried on a shoe and scrub brush handle mill, giving employment to from twelve to fifteen hands, summer and winter, using annually several hundred cords of birch.
His funeral took place from his late residence on Tuesday, 13th, inst., and his body was taken to Salem, N.Y., for interment. He will be greatly missed, and it will be hard to fill the vacancy caused by his death. He leaves a wife to mourn his loss, to whom, with his numerous friends we extend our sympathies and we feel safe in adding those of the whole community.
