His obituary was published 10 Jan 1885, Little Rock, Pulaski County, Arkansas.

OBITUARY OF HON. THOMAS W. POUND

Hon. Thos. W. Pound, died on the 24th day of December 1884, at his home in Danville, Yell county, Ark. The Han. Thomas W. Pound departed this life, aged 73 Years 8 Months and 19 days.

The deceased was born in Rockingham county, North Carolina, on the fifth day of April, 1811. When a boy he immigrated, with his father, to Kentucky, and grew to manhood In that state and West Tennessee. When about 24 years old he went to Amite county, Mississippi where he married Lucinda Hall [sic], with whom he lived happily for nearly forty years. In 1843 he came to Danville, Yell county, Ark. where he lived until his death.

He had seven children, of whom two daughters and one son are dead. One of his deceased daughters was the first wife of Hon. Thomas Boles, now marshall of the Western District of Arkansas. The other was the wife of J.R. Smith, who died in 1881. Three daughters, to-wit: Miss Ellen, Mrs. Littlejohn and Mrs. Bumgardner, and one son Joseph W. Pound are yet living.

The deceased and his excellent wife had lived to rear their family around them, and to see them grow to manhood and womanhood under their excellent instructions and example, and had the satisfaction of seeing them occupying honorable positions in society, and living useful and honorable lives. His amiable and beloved wife departed to the better land before him in November 1875.

At the second biennial election in 1846, after his arrival in the county, he was elected clerk of the circuit court and ex-officio clerk of the county and probate courts, and recorder of Yell county, which offices he held, by seven successive elections, for fourteen years until 1860 when he retired from the office and began the practice of law at Danville, which he continued, excepting a few years of the war, as far as his health would permit, until his death.

His law knowledge, sound judgment and sterling integrity, had for many years before he quit the clerk's office, made him the confidential advisor of the citizens of his county, and his discreet counsels, prevented many misunderstandings, or adjusted them upon fair and equitable principles, and when he began the practice of law, he had a large and influential clientage, which he retained as long as failing health and strength permitted him to do his professional work, and he will be missed, now that he has passed away, by his children, by a large circle of friends and by clients.

In 1866 the deceased was elected to the house of representatives of the Arkansas legislature and during that trying session just bordering on reconstruction, which the legislature, at that session tried so patiently to avert, the deceased was efficient in council and a faithful and untiring worker in the house and also in the committee rooms, where men of his mould are always needed and always useful in legislation. He was modest and unassuming, did not say all that his ripe judgment entitled him to say in debate; for he rarely talked much. He was a worker, and soon taught those around him his value as a worker and as a wise counsellor.

In 1878 Gov. Miller appointed the deceased judge of the Fifth Circuit to fill the unexpired term of Judge Mansfield, resigned. In politics Judge Pound was an unwavering democrat upon principle which he well understood, and with him, came from the heart and head. For many years it had been his earnest desire to live to see the election of a democratic president, and he saw it; and in the depth of his honest earnest, sincere nature, he doubtless felt like Simeon of old, "Lord, how lettest thou thy servant depart in peace according to thy word, for mine eyes have seen thy salvation." To such a noble old man, who had gone through the session of the legislature of 1866, which was dispersed by military order, who had gone 1868 to 1874, it would hardly overdraw it to compare his feelings In November 1884, at least in a limited degree, to that of the old prophet.

He was made a Free Mason in the state of Mississippi, about fifty years ago, and had in that state taken all the degrees up to and including the Council degrees. He took the Templar degrees in Hugh De Payne Commandery No. 1, at Little Rock on the night of December 11, 1866. At the time of his death he was a member of Danville Lodge No. 41, Dardanelle Chapter No. 64, and Palestine Commandery No.7, K.T. at Russellville, having been a petitioner for and a Charter member of each. He was the first Master of Danville Lodge No. 41, which position he held for a number of years, and was a member of that Lodge ever since Its organization in 1850. He was a zealous Mason, and never failed to attend the Lodge meetings when he could get there. His remains were followed to the grave by a large number of brethren, most of whom he had helped to make Masons, and he was buried with Masonic honors.

For several years before his death the deceased had been suffering with chronic ill health, and had from this been gradually growing feebler, and had not the vigor to resist the attack of fever, which in nine days ended his life on earth. Thus another old Arkansas had passed away. His life was an example of cheerfulness, and devotion to duty, uncomplaining submission to God's providences, enjoying calmly the sunshine of prosperity, and unmurmuringly submitting to the inevitable; bearing his own burdens uncomplainingly while assisting to make lighter the loads which pressed upon other weary shoulders. The friend of the young and struggling, the help of the widow and the orphans, the unfaltering friend, the kind father, the good citizen, has gone to his rest.

Little Rock, Jan. 5, 1885 S.W.W.
