Obituary, The Pulaski Citizen W.T. Pillow
W.T. "Tom Cat" Pillow died suddenly Monday forenoon at the home of a
neighbor, Tom Holt, near Vale Mills. Mr. Pillow after spending the
night with his daughter, Mrs. George Dodson, in town, started home. The
weather was bitter cold Monday and Mr. Pillow was 83 years old. He
stopped in at Tom Holt's to warm. And while sitting by the fire enjoying
its warmth, collapsed, dying almost instantly. Funeral services were
held at the home of Mrs. Dotson in Pulaski, Tuesday afternoon. Services
were conducted by Elder Clifford Murphy, followed by burial at Mt Moriah. Mr. Pillow was a tenant farmer having spent the greater part of
his life in the neighborhood of Vale Mills and Chicken Creek. In his
younger years he had the reputation of being one of the best cotton
farmers in the county. He knew how to plant, cultivate, and gather the
crop to get good results.
