Thomas Pope, deceased, who was for many years a prosperous and influential lumberman and farmer of Eau Claire county, was a native son of Wisconsin and born in Waukesha county. He came to Eau Claire in 1868 and engaged in lumbering, which he followed for several years, and was later for twelve years engaged in farming near Augusta. He was a careful, conservative and methodical man in his affairs, and in all his business dealings was known for his uprightness and fairness. He was a man of fine personal qualities, social and companionable, a lover of good comradeship and loyal to his friends.


He married Miss Ellen Roach, daughter of Joseph and Mary (O'Neal) Roach, natives of Ireland and prosperous farmers of Union township. To them three children were born: George W., Anna and Nellie. George W. married Mary Torseth and has four children: Louis, Charlotte, Helen and Leonard. He is now in the employ of the United States government as rural mail carrier. Nellie married Leonard Bryant and resides at Minneapolis. The death of Mr. Thomas Pope, which occurred August 1, 1889, was considered a great loss by the citizens of Eau Claire, and he was mourned by his family and a large circle of friends.
