Obituary of Thomas S. Watson - Middleway, West Virginia.

After an illness of a few days, Thomas S. Watson, a retired farmer and Confederate veteran, died at his home, near Middleway, W. Va. He was almost eighty-one years of age and up to his last illness was active. In the War between the States he was a soldier in the Confederate army, serving with other Jefferson County men in the famous Clark Cavalry, organized at Berryville. Few men of his command made a better record for courage and loyal devotion to the cause of the Confederacy than did he. With the war over, he devoted himself to farming and followed that occupation the remainder of his active life. Four sons and one daughter survive him.

After the funeral services in the Union Church at Middleway, he was laid to rest in the Masonic Cemetery there.
