THOMAS, MARGARET LEWIS - (Continued)


mother of ten children, four of whom survive her, viz.: Mrs. W.H. Kock [sic], Mrs. Henry J. Powell, Mrs. William Brace, and Mrs. I.C. Lambert, all of this place.” [FMJ 10-27-1888, p.1]

“Mrs. J.[B].[Margaret] Thomas of Borden Shaft died last Sunday after a long illness. The remains were interred in the Old Graveyard on this place.” [FMJ 10-27-1888]

“Death of an Estimable Lady. Mrs. Martha Thomas, wife of Joseph Thomas, mining boss of Hoffman mine, died at the family residence, near Eckhart, Thursday afternoon, aged 48 years, 6 months and 3 days. Mrs. Thomas had been ill but a few days. Her death was, therefore, a sudden and distressing stroke to the family and a large circle of friends. She was a native of Wales; came to this vicinity 35 years ago and resided here ever since. All her life a member of the Presbyterian church, she was an exemplary christian lady. Her husband and ten children survive. The funeral will take place at the residence to-morrow afternoon at 1:30; interment in the old graveyard.” [FMJ 10-3-1891, p. 3]

THOMAS, MORGAN
(husband of BARBARA E. THOMAS)
b. June 6, 1842
d. March 25, 1888
a. 45 yrs. 9 mos. 19 dys.
Headstone


“The people of Borden Shaft lost one of their best citizens by death Sunday afternoon—Morgan Thomas, in the 46th year of his age. The sad event was quite unexpected. He had apparently recovered from an injury incurred some time ago but on Friday night was seized with cramps of the bowels and steadily sank until death relieved him of his sufferings. He had been a steady, trusted employee of the Borden mining company 27 years, and a citizen who in every respect bore an irreproachable character. His wife and three children survive to mourn an irreplaceable loss. The funeral at the M.E. Church, Frostburg, was one of the largest ever witnessed there. The turnout of Frostburg Lodge, No. 49, I.O.O.F., and Frostburg City Lodge, No. 88, Knights of Pythias, was an impressive feature.” [FMJ 3-31-1888, p. 4]

THOMPSON, MARY WELCH
(wife of WILLIAM THOMPSON)
b. August 6, 1796
d. May 24, 1839
a. 42 yrs. 9 mos. 18 dys.
Headstone


“Aden Clary said that William Thompson was a brother-in-law to Aden's wife (Isabella Welch) through marriage. (Equity Docket #1271—dated March 12, 1859). I have found a family in Pa. that I believe to be Isabella's. I think Mary Thompson is Ann Maria (Mary?) Welch, born Aug. 6, 1796 in Salisbury, Pa., daughter of John and Elizabeth (nee Glotfelty) Welch. Her date of birth to date of death comes out exactly 42 yrs, 9 mo., 18 days, as it says on the headstone!” (Mary M. Carrera, letter dated July 14, 1988)

It is interesting that the headstone refers to Mary Welch Thompson as the “consort” of William Thompson. We assume this was just a unique way of referring to her as his wife but it could mean something akin to “mistress” or “common-law” wife.

THOMPSON, MARY
(daughter of WILLIAM and MARY THOMPSON?)
b. 1837
d. February 24, 1879
a. 42
Headstone


We are assuming this was the daughter of Mary and William Thompson but have been unable to find proof of the connection.

b. June 17, 1870
d. December 26, 1892
a. 22 yrs. 6 mos. 9 dys.
Headstone


“Isaac Tross and Miss Catharine Levi, both colored residents of Frostburg, were married at the parsonage of the M.E. Church South, Monday evening, November 16, 1892.” [FMJ 12-3-1892]

“Poisoned. Monday, Dec. 26, Catherine Tross, wife of Isaac Tross, colored, died in Dr. J.J. Jones’ office from poison alleged to have been administered by Jack Brown, a well-known colored man, in a glass of beer.
