Death of Sereno Thomas
Sereno Thomas died last Monday afternoon at the home of his son, Fred A. Thomas, where he had made his home for several years. His mental faculties had been ailing somewhat for two or three years but otherwise his health had been remarkably good for one of his years. A week previous to his death he seemed suddenly weaker, but kept about the house until the day before his death which came very peacefully and without suffering. He was born on Hinsdale, N. Y., Nov. 7, 1822. While yet a young man he moved to Vernon where for many years he followed the occupation of a farmer. His wife died soon after they came to live with his son. He is survived by three sons and two daughters and several grandchildren, besides one brother in Keene and a sister, Mrs. Howe of Brattleboro. He was one of a large family of children all of whom have lived to extreme old age, several past 85, and the two remaining are well towards 90.
Both Mr. And Mrs. Thomas were carefully and tenderly cared for by their son and his excellent wife, who have faithfully fulfilled the command, "Honor thy father and thy mother." The funeral was held Thursday, burial being in Vernon.
