THOMAS DIXON WAITE - The subject of this sketch was born in South Wellingham, England, April 11, 1835, and died at Cleveland, Ohio, at the home of his son, J.F. Waite, January 23, 1915, aged 79 years, 9 months and 12 days.

May 31, 1862 he was united in marriage to Emeline LaDow, who died June 2, 1890. Thomas Dixon Waite came to this country with his parents in 1854, the family consisting of five sons and one daughter. Here he continued to reside until twelve years ago, when he went to Cleveland to live with this son and family, whose loving ministrations have been gladly bestowed upon the father. His illness has been of some length, in spite of this fact his death was unexpected, as none realized that the end was so near.

Mr. Waite was a blacksmith by trade, which he followed for many years in Plymouth, and for a number of years was engaged in the implement trade, after the stress of hard labor and advancing years began to reduce his strength. He was of a quiet, unassuming nature, and was a man held in the highest esteem by all those bearing his acquaintance and his death will be mourned not only in the home but by his large circle of relatives and friends, as he was a man who would endear himself to anyone.
