Thomas Wade

The Courant American
Cartersville, Georgia
June 12, 1890, page 8
Transcribed by:  

Mr. Thomas Wade, a young white man, was plowing for Mr. Broadwater on J. S. Moore’s farm, near Kingston. About 2 o’clock the men took out the mules from the plows as a thunder storm was approaching, and just as Mr. Wade was attempting to get on his mule he was struck on the head by lightning and killed instantly; also the mule was killed. Mr. Wade was an industrious young man and had a widowed mother to support. His remains were interred in the Kingston cemetery at 4 o’clock p. m., June 6th. We extend our sympathies to his mother and relatives.
