Obituary

North Springfield

Thomas Griswold died Tuesday after an illness of about three weeks of typhoid fever. The deceased was a soldier of the Rebellion enlisting twice in the service of his country and enduring the horrors of Andersonville with many others. Of late years he has lived on a little place that he owned in quietness and seclusion. The G.A.R., of which he was a member, attended the obsequies which were held in the Grand Army hall, and in a body to the muffled beat of the drum escorted the remains to the last resting place in the old cemetery.
