Thomas J. Phillips

Mr. Thomas J. Phillips, a veteran of the Civil War, and a pioneer settler in the Berlin neighborhood, who for eight years has been a sufferer and almost helpless from paralytic strokes, passed away this morning at 3 o’clock.  For some time he was entirely helpless and his death was not unexpected. He leaves a wife and five children, four daughters and one son to mourn his death. He has lived near Berlin for forty years, and was an upright, honest man and a desirable citizen, and in every sense of the word, his worth was recognized by his neighbors, who deeply sympathize with the sorrowing family. He will be buried tomorrow at the Fellowship cemetery. Source: Ocala Evening Star: 7-8-1908
