NEWSPAPER TIDBIT: Former Danville Resident Dies in Bloomington (1920)

from The Republican (Danville, Indiana) – issue of Thursday, October 14, 1920 – page 4, column 2:

Thomas J. Clark, formerly a business man of Danville, died suddenly on his farm, west of Bloomington, Sunday. The body was brought to Danville for burial in the East cemetery yesterday, there being a brief service at the grave conducted by Rev. C.C. Ford. Mr. Clark was a member of the 148th Indiana regiment. He was twice married, his first wife being buried in the East cemetery. Their daughter, Ada, died some months ago in the west. Some years ago Mr. Clark moved to Bloomington where he was elected county treasurer. Saturday he was taken ill with indigestion and his physician ordered him to remain in bed. Sunday while Mrs. Clark was out of the room, he arose from the bed and fell dead. Mr. and Mrs. John Hampton and their daughter, Mrs. Retta Adams were among those who came from Bloomington with the body.
