Obituary of Thomas J. Pollard, Bowling Green, Kentucky

Thomas J. Pollard, Adjutant of Bowling Green Camp, No. 143, U. C. V., died in Bowling Green, Ky., after a lingering illness, Sunday, January 31, 1915, at the age of seventy-three.

Mr. Pollard was a man of sterling character and was highly respected by all who knew him. He served in the Orphan Brigade and was a faithful and gallant soldier throughout. A comrade who knew him well thus speaks of him: "Mr. Pollard was as brave a man as I ever knew and at the same time as gentle as a woman. I never heard him say and unkind word about any living being, and I never heard an unchaste word fall from his lips. He went into the war a frail and delicate boy, and he did not think he could stand the hardships; but he has outlived the most of us. He never shirked a duty, and he was always in the thickest of the fight."
