Oregon City Courier, Friday, April 22, 1904
The funeral of T. J. Holland, Co. D. Osage Regiment, Missouri Infantry Volunteers, occurred at the same hour (as funeral of L. T. Barin). Services were held at the residence. Mr. Holland who was 82 years of age, has resided at Canemah and Oregon City for some years past.
This is the first time since the organization of Meade Post No. 2 G. A. R. that two funerals have been conducted on the same day by the organization. Time is inexorable, and the Boys in Blue, who so gallantly fought that we might enjoy a free and united country, are rapidly being mustered out of life’s service.
Oregon City Enterprise, Friday, April 29, 1904
Our Comrade Thomas J. Holland departed this life Wednesday morning April 20th, 1904, in Oregon City, Oregon, at 2:30 o’clock, aged 83 years. He was born in Pittsylvania county, Virginia, in September 1822. Enlisted in the Federal army in 1861, and served until the expiration of enlistment in the Osage county Missouri Artillery. He was married at Lynn, Missouri, in 1857. He came to Oregon sixteen years ago residing at Salem until five years ago, since which time he has made Oregon City his home. He was the oldest member of Meade Post No. 2 department of Oregon G. A. R. Comrade Holland was a man of massive build, possessing great physical strength and endurance, he has scarcely known what sickness was until stricken down with his recent heart trouble, which proved fatal. He was kind, amiable and generous to a fault, a man of sterling honesty and principle, one whom to know was to love.
Meade Post No. 2 G. A. R. deplores the loss of this dear old comrade and extends sympathy of each member to the stricken wife and children in their sorrow. Salem papers please copy.
