New Jersey Obituaries - August 31, 1898 - Thomas Henry Norman

Thomas Henry Norman, the second son of Thomas Norman of Bridge avenue, died on Sunday afternoon from appendicitis. He was taken sick only a few days before his death, and his sickness was deemed trivial until Saturday morning, when he became much worse, and he was then said to be suffering from appendicitis. He grew worse rapidly, and by night the physicians decided that his only chance of recovery was through an operation. This was performed at one o'clock on Sunday morning by Dr. Paul Kimball of Seabright, Dr. Curtis of New York, and Dr. J. E. Sayre and Dr. W. B. Warner of Red Bank. Mr. Norman regained consciousness an hour after the operation, but sank steadily until half-past five o'clock on Sunday afternoon, when he died.

Mr. Norman was twenty years old. He was a member of St. James's club and was very popular with his associates. The funeral was held this morning at ten o'clock from St. James's church. St. James's club attended the funeral in a body. The service was conducted by Rev. James A. Reynolds. The bearers were Charles Johnson, John Armstrong, Charles Hawkins, John Holian and James Quigley. The burial was at Mt. Olivet cemetery at Headden's Corner.
