Rev. R. Y. Thomas and Mary E. Thomas Obituaries – Muhlenberg County

From the History of Muhlenberg County we find the following about our couple:

‘Reverend Thomas was a son of Jonathan Thomas, and his wife was a daughter of George Briggs, both of whom were pioneers in the Green River country.  Reverend R. Y. Thomas was a Methodist minister.  He began preaching in 1848, and continued that work in Muhlenberg and other parts of western Kentucky until 1900.  He died in January, 1905.’

Rev. Robert Young Thomas, December 18, 1825 – January 9, 1905.  Mary E. Thomas, December 12, 1833 – September 7, 1905.  ‘Ever near us, though unseen, the dear immortal spirits tread.  For all the boundless universe is life.  There are no dead.’  Greenville Cemetery, Muhlenberg County, Kentucky.
