A Short and Interesting Sketch of an Old Kentuckian -- A Career of Almost a Century
Died, at his residence in Springville, Ky., June 12 1894, Reuben T. Thomson, age 82 years, nine months and eighteen days. His children were Catharine, died in 1856; Anthony and Amos, now of Louisiana; Sarah, wife of J. R. Lawson, died 1891; James, residing here. Uncle Reuben, as he was usually called, was one of the pioneers of the Thomson settlement, in Greenup county, Ky., tow and a half miles below Springville, near the old fort. He was born September, 24, 1811. His parents, Anthony and Sarah Thomson, settled on the old Sherman farm in 1808, and raised fourteen children, all to man and womanhood. All were married previous to their deaths. Uncle Reuben was know far and near for his great love for hunting and fishing. Often in the 60’s and 70’s he would go to Arkansas and spend three or four weeks hunting deer and ducks and fish in the rivers.
His associates were Jas. L. Waring, Judge Jas. Bryant, Lewis Brum, Edward Hockaday and many others of Greenup county. Capt. Wm. McClain, M. D. Potter, Little Joe Moon, Col. John A. Turley and many others of Ohio. He was great marksman in his younger days.
He was a man who did not branch out in business and was very careful and considerative during his live. He secured some means and lived very quiet during his old days. Always had a good comfortable home and plenty around him, and always something for the poor and needy who deserved it.
The loss of his wife Elizabeth Thompson, March 16th, 1888, was a great blow to him, from which he never fully recovered, often being despondent.
His sickness lasted for eight long weeks. From the first he never rallied, growing weeker from time to time. Careful hands and good nursing were of no avail.
He was buried at the old Mt. Zion cemetery Wednesday June 14th at 3 p.m., by the masons of Portsmouth, of which lodge he was an honored member. Funeral sermon was conducted by Rev. Sweitzer.
