Thomas H. Manson of Red Bank Dies of Pneumonia at His Home on Oakland Street

Thomas H. Manson died of pneumonia on Saturday night at his home on Oakland street. He was 63 years old and had been sick about a week. The family did not think he was seriously sick, and his death was wholly unexpected. Mr. Manson moved here from Brooklyn about 32 years ago and for a number of years he was employed in Corlies Thompsonís stone yard. A few years ago he engaged in business for himself on Monmouth street, near Maple avenue. He was an exempt member of the Brooklyn volunteer fire department and of the Red Bank hook and ladder company.

A widow and six children survive him. The children are Louis, Frank, George, William and Josephine of Red Bank, and James Manson of Brooklyn. The funeral was held at two oíclock this afternoon from the house and the service was conducted by Rev. William B. Matteson. Mr. Mansonís five sons and Rutherford Woodhead of Brooklyn, a nephew of Mr. Mansonís acted as pall bearers. The body was buried at Fair View cemetery.
