    • DEATH OF MR. THOMAS LASBURY, Snr.

      Mr. Thomas Lasbury, Sr. in whose memory this article appears, was born in Kensington, England, June 8, 1832. At the time of his death he had nearly attained the age of score-four years. May 18, 1858, while yet in England, he was united in marriage to Miss Emma Wall White. Seven years later this noble couple emigrated to America.

      Coming to Pike County, Mr. Lasbury was a successful man in Griggsville, and in Pittsfield for many years. Those who knew him speak in the highest terms of his business integrity. He was a good and true citizen. Since retiring from business, Mr. Lasbury has lived in the west part of Griggsville.

      Up till the death of his wife, in December 1909, the Lasbury home was a model of quiet happy home life. In his home, Mr. Lasbury was best known. There his quiet manliness made the hearthstone a cheerful place. Since the death of his wife Mr. Lasbury lived with his daughter, Mrs. Mary H. Rodway. While he has not been a well man for sometime, Mr. Lasbury was a cheerful, contented man. He was not a selfish man, but in a noble sense he spent most of his life tending strictly to his own business. If all were like him peace and harmony would generally prevail.

      Thursday March 2 he appeared to feel as well as usual. He made his usual trip to town and talked in congenial and social ways to many of his dear friends. He returned to his home about 5:00P.M. and gave Mrs. Rodway a bottle of medicine from Dr. Watson, and delivered a message sent by the Dr. to her. He then inquired about the health of Mrs. Ezra Doane and family, from whom Mrs. Rodway had received a letter. He expressed his pleasure in knowing that they were well. Then there was a short struggle for breath, a bowing of the head and in less than a minute he yielded his spirit to God who gave it. Thus suddenly passed away a faithful citizen, a true man and a kind friend. It was the way he wanted to go. In him we see what the quiet service to the Episcopal Church will do to mold substantial character and a life that wears well to the end.

      To mourn the loss of this good man are four children, Thomas Lasbury of St. Louis, Mo., Mrs. Emma McConnell of Peoria, Illinois, Mrs. Mary H. Rodway and Mr. M.M. Lasbury of Griggsville. There are also nine grandchildren and ten great grandchildren.

      Funeral services were held at the home of Mrs. Mary H. Rodway, Sunday afternoon 2:30P.M., Rev. G.E. Young officiating. Interment Griggsville Cemetery. A good man has gone to rest.

      Pallbearers were Thomas Lasbury, M.M. Lasbury, C.H. McConnell, J.W. Stead, C.P. Hatch and John Lasbury, Jr.

      Inscription: Son of Benjamin Lasbury and Mary Turnbull, husband of Emma Wall White
