Obituary

BRANDON

Thomas Powers, aged 64 years, died at his home Tuesday from heart failure, having been unconscious four days. Mr. Powers was the first baggage master employed at Brandon on the opening up of the road in 1848, and, with the exception of three years spent in the army, was continuously employed in this capacity up to 1877, when he was obliged to vacate the position on account of failing eyesight. Mr. Powers was highly respected by all. He is survived by two daughters and one son, Richard W., who for many years has been manager of Hotel De Soto, Savannah, Ga. The funeral will be held Thursday morning.
