1972 The death of Tommy Lane, Wednesday evening, removes from this place another of its oldest settlers. For a quarter of a century he had made Cleveland his home, living a life of usefulness and honor. Naturally rugged and possessed of remarkable strength and endurance, through troubled with lameness caused by an injury received in the English naval service, in his younger days he could and did do the work of two men: and in his declining years, under natural infirmities, labored hard and faithfully and uncomplainingly, day after day, up to within a short time of his death. Though not endowed with great intellectual gifts, his judgement was eagerly sought in many and various matters of importance, and in numerous instances has he rendered service, and such of it gratuitously. His many fine qualities endeared him to the whole community; and no deeper regret could be expressed for the most elevated and favored of our citizens than is manifested over the departure of this humble and worthy representative of honest toil. Lane, Thomas (I791)
