Obituary of Thomas E. Stout, Atlanta, Ga.

Thomas Edward Stout, who died in Atlanta, Ga., on August 30, 1920, was born in Nashville, Tenn., on January 24, 1849, the eldest child of Dr. Samuel H. Stout, medical director of the hospital department of the Army of Tennessee, C. S. A., and of Martha Moore Abernathy, daughter of Thomas E. Abernathy, of Giles County, Tenn.

Thomas Stout passed his youth on his father's plantation at Midridge, in Giles County, and at the age of sixteen he entered the Confederate navy. He was with the naval forces at Richmond when the war closed and was one of the members of the guard for Mrs. Davis and babie Winnie on their journey from Richmond.

After the war Comrade Stout entered the service of the Express company and was with it many years, retiring two years ago on account of failing health. He was a member of the United Confederate Veterans and also of Georgia Lodge of Masons, No. 96.

He was married in 1880 to Miss Clara C. Allen, and surviving him are two daughters-Mrs. D. C. Yarborough, of Griffin, Ga., and Mrs. George W. Clayton, of Atlanta-also two sisters-Misses Margaret and Katherine Stout, of Lancaster, Tex.-and seven grandchildren.

He was laid to rest in Westview Cemetery, Atlanta.
