Article in Lawrence County Record, Mt. Vernon, MO, Thursday Sept 5, 1912,


"Thomas Phillips died at the Asylum at Nevada Sunday afternoon at two o'clock. The body was shipped to Hoberg over the Iron Mountain rail road where it was met by friends and relatives and conveyed to Summit church where the funeral services were conducted and the remains were laid to rest in the cemetery near the church. Mr. Phillips recently became of unsound mind and was so judged at a trial before Probate Judge Scott B. Dayton last week. He was taken the next day by the Sheriff to Nevada where he only lived a few days."

Note from K: Nevada is in Vernon Co., MO, and is north and a little west of Lawrence Co. I tried to get a copy of the trial transcript mentioned and was told it was not available - that it either no longer existed or was packed away in storage at the courthouse.
