Hitchcock, Thomas (7 JUL 1848 - 8 APR 1928)

Thomas Hitchcock passed away at his home in Alma Center, Wis. April 8, 1928, after many months of failing health. He was born in Devonshire, England, July 7, 1948, son of Mary and James Hitchcock, coming to America with his parents in 1855 and locating in Waupaca, Co., Wis.

In 1868 he purchased a farm in Clark County, which has been his home for many years.

He was married on Jan. 18, 1882, to Miss Alice Sichler of Alma Center. In 1908 they disposed of their farm home near Neillsville and moved to Alma Center, which has been their home ever since. Mrs. Hitchcock passed away less than two months before her husband and he was laid beside her in the Catholic Cemetery in this village.

He leaves only one sister living, Mrs. Sarah Winters of Neillsville; two nephews, Arthur and Jesse Wilding, and a foster daughter, Mrs. Harold Irish. The two latter have been in constant attendance to Mr. Hitchcock since the death of his wife.

The funeral was held Tuesday, April 10, at the M. E. Church in Alma Center, Rev. G. W. Longenecker of Neillsville conducting the services.

The death of Mr. and Mrs. Hitchcock has removed from our community two of our most loved and highly respected citizens and they will be sadly missed by a host of friends and neighbors.
