Teal, Benjamin M. -- Benjamin M. Teal was born in Lancaster, Fairfield county, Ohio, March 31, 1810, and died in McLean county, Illinois , March 31, 1882, aged 72 years. His early years were spent in Ohio. In 1831 he went to Kentucky where, on October 21st, 1836, he was married to his wife, who survives him. In 1856 he came with his family to Illinois and settled in McLean county, where he has since lived, till last Friday, March 31st, at 1 o'clock p.m., (it being the 72d anniversary of his birth) he passed quietly from earth. Mr. Teal was converted and united with the M.E. church at the age of 16, and continued a faithful member of the same till death. He was a kind husband and a loving father, a kind and obliging neighbor, a faithful worker in the church and Sabbath school. In his last affliction he suffered much, but no murmur escaped his lips, being fully resigned to the will of God. The funeral services were conducted at Mr. Hope church on Sabbath by Rev. J. T. Orr, after which the remains were taken to cemetery, followed by a large number of old friends and neighbors, laid tenderly away to await the resurrection. He leaves a wife and six children weeping on the shore, who have the sympathy of a large circle of friends. [*NOTE* Benjamin M. Teal is buried in McLean Cemetery (which was know at one time as Mt. Hope Cemetery), Unknown newspaper, Contributed by Ruth Lowery Price]

Thomas, Algin -- Flattened Bullet Killed Thomas - Believed That It Went Into the Ceiling and Then Rebounded (Herald Bureau) Mt. Sterling, Ky., Aug. 28. -- An autopsy was performed over the remains of Algin Thomas Tuesday night. The bullet, a 32 calibre [sic] was taken from the brain. It was flattened on one side. It is now believed that Mrs. Brumet was greatly excited when she fired the shot that killed Thomas, and that it was not her accurate aim that saved her life. It was discovered that one of the bullets fired by the woman struck in the ceiling but could not be accounted for. It is now contended that the bullet which struck the ceiling, rebounded, striking Thomas in the head and causing his death. The remains of Thomas were buried today in Machpeloh cemetery, three of his children, Miss Effie Cahill and William Thomas, of Toranda, Illinois and Henry Thomas, of Lexington, Illinois, attended the funeral of their father, while the three other children are at the bedside of their dying mother in Illinois. The evidence introduced at the coronerís inquest will be referred to the Montgomery county grand jury which meets in this city next Monday. [29 Aug 1907 - Lexington Herald-Leader, Kentucky]

Thomas, Charles W. (Son of William & Catharine Thomas,) d. at res. of his parents, 502 E. Jefferson St. B. 3/31/1879, a. 23 y.

Thomas -- The death of John Thomas occurred at the residence of his grandson, H. A. Thomas, Esq., one-half mile southeast of Potosi, in the 98th year of his age. Father Thomas was born in Halifax, Windham Co., Vt., March 5, 1782. He enlisted in the war of 1812, and served until its close. He was a cloth-dresser by occupation, and worked on the farm summers and at his trade winters. He was three times married, and was the father of twelve children, nine of whom survive him. In 1852, he went to live with his son, at Adams, Jefferson Co., N. V., where he assisted, for a number of years, in carrying on a dairy. In 1868, he came to Illinois, and has since made this place his home. He had, for many years, been a pensioner of the Government. Nearly thirty years ago, a cancer made its appearance on his left cheek, which slowly made its way until the time of his death, The cavity was about four inches in diameter. Though this was not the cause of his death directly, still it may have hastened it somewhat. For some years, he has gradually lost strength, but was only confined to his bed about four months. During his helplessness, he was kindly cared for by his son and grandson, and the wife of his grandson. Think of the changes time has wrought in this county during only half of the lifetime of this aged soldier! [The History of McLean County, Illinois, Chicago: W. LeBaron Jr. & Co., 1879]
