Thomas Minto Dies at His Home in San Francisco, California
Thomas David Minto was born in Lake County, Illinois, in 1857, and died in San Francisco, California, September 7, 1912. He was the oldest son of John Minto, formerly of Antioch, and Francis Webb Minto, both deceased. In 1877, he was married to Carrie Reynolds, and for eight years the young couple lived near Hickory. In 1885, John Minto moved with his family to California, and his son Tom with his wife and daughter Mable, accompained them.
For many years Tom lived at Geyserville, Astown in the fruit valley north of San Francisco, and had of late years kept a grocery store there. His father lived with him until his death in October 1909.
It was after a lingering illness extending over a period of two years, during which Mr. Minto had undergone several operations in hope of recovery, that he went to San Francisco about two months ago, in the hope that the change of climate would be beneficial, but, although up to within a few days of his death he seem to improve, the ravages of Bright's Disease proved to overcome.
Besides a large circle of relatives and friends he leaves to mourn his faithful wife and five children and three grand children. Two of his daughters Mrs. Feldmeyer and Mrs. Scaggs reside in Geyserville and the two younger sons, Lloyd and Austin reside with their mother there. The oldest son Thomas, lives at Corte Madera.
The funeral services were held under the auspices of the Woodman of the World of which he was a member, and the interment was in Olive Hill cemetery at Geyserville.
