THOMAS, Rev. Cyrus, a native of Sudbury, Rutland Co. Vt., where he was born Aug. 15, 1846 (sic); he was baptized and converted when he was eighteen years of age by Rev. C.A. Thomas, D.D. of Brandon, Vt.; educated at Middlebury College, Vt. and at Alton Theological Seminary, Alton, Ill.; ordained at Upper Alton, Ill. in July 1869; has been pastor of three churches - Bellville, Ill.; East St. Louis; and New Lisbon, Wis. where he has been settled six years, and where he now resides. During the late war Mr. Thomas entered the US service in the 1st Vermont Heavy Artillery, in which he was commissioned as a lieutenant. He was twice wounded while in battle, and he is disabled for life. He was twice promoted for gallant conduct. His ministerial record is excellent, and he is highly esteemed for his work sake.
