    • Thomas Menoher Obituary

      Thomas Menoher, a well known and highly respected citizen of the Ligonier valley, died at his home in West Fairfield Tuesday, March 12, 1918, of heart trouble, after a gradual decline of about one year.

      He was a son of Chas. and Sarah Clifford Menoher and was the last surviving member of that large family. He was born near Ligonier April 27, 1838, and spent most of his long useful life in the valley.

      He was a soldier in the Civil War, spent three years at Fort Delaware and continued in the army until the close of the war.

      He was united in marriage with Rachel Bennett Oct. 16, 1865, and they went west to live, but soon returned to the valley. In 1889 they went to San Francisco, Cal., but returned the same year to New Florence where Mr. Menoher bought the planing mill and run it very successfully, being an influential citizen of the town many years.. He was a contractor, a fine carpenter and sair builder fifty years ago, as some of the best houses in New Florence and the valley testify. He retired from heavy work about fifteen years ago but continued action in service until the last year of his life.

      He was a faithful member of the United Presbyterian Church, being an elder and a teacher in the Sabbath school and leader in the choir, having led the music in church about fifty years.

      Funeral services were contucted in the Union Presbyterian church by his pastor, Rev. S. P. Montgomery, Thursday afternoon, followed by interment in the cemetery adjoining.

      He is survived by his wido and a large circle of relatives and friends.
