Obituary

SOUTH NEWBURY

Thomas Allen Brock, born in this place September 4, 1841, died in Omaha, Nebraska, Nov. 16th. He was the fourth of seven children of Col. Horatio Brock, and in the fourth generation from Dea. Thomas Brock the first of his race to come to Newbury. Much of interest can be learned of this family in our town history. Thomas saw service in the War of the Rebellion as a private and officer. During the closing months of the war he recruited a company which frequently drilled on the common at Newbury village, and of which the late William U. Bailey and Robert Meserve were lieutenants. Of this company Thomas Brock was the popular captain.

Several years ago he was obliged on account of a throat difficulty to go West, where he was for many years in the railroad business. His visits home were always happy events greatly enjoyed by family and friends.
