Gray Vigis

Obituary of Thomas Vigis, Hawlin, Virginia.

Thomas Vigis died at Hawlin, Va., October 20, 1914. He was born January 28, 1838, in Parish Little Munden, Hertfordshire, England. Coming to this country in 1860, he was in Atlanta, Ga., when the war came on and he joined the Fulton Dragoons, Cobb's Legion, Hampton's Brigade. During the war he met Miss Fisher, of Rappahannock County, Va., whom he later married. After the war he settled in Hawlin, Va., where he was a popular and successful merchant, as he had been a faithful and true soldier, beloved and respected by all who came in contact with him as a true man, a consistent Christian, and a devoted parent. He leaves a wife and two children. He was buried in the Episcopal cemetery of the Church in which he had been a faithful member and worker for fifty years. Daughters of the Confederacy placed Confederate flags over his bier, and his loved ones pinned his cross of honor on his breast. As his former pastor I can testify to his true and faithful devotion to duty.
