Sunday's Obituary: Thomas Harrison / James Colquhoun

Daily National Intelligencer
12 January 1816


Suddenly, at his seat near Dumfries, Virginia, on Saturday last, THOMAS HARRISON, Esq.  In this dispensation, his deeply afflicted wife and children have sustained a loss the most poignant, and to whom, none could be so irreparable which must be long and keenly felt -- for no husband ever was more affectionate -- no parent more attached -- and those of his most intimate friends and acquaintance have to lament the loss, and to feel the blank it has occasioned.  With those who knew him best, few men stood higher in relation to correct principles of honor and integrity.

Alexandria Gazette
20 September 1815

DIED, at Dumfries, Va. on the 5th instant, Mr. JAMES COLQUHOUN, in the forty ninth year of his age, an old and respectable inhabitant of that place.
