William Thomas Mason was one of six children born to Christopher Jackson and Ellen Morgan Mason. He was born September 20th 1842, in Grass Township in this county on a farm then owned by his father. When but a lad his father's family moved to Luce Township where the deceased grew to manhood.
On July 9th 1861, when but 18 years of age, possessing a fine physique inspired with a lofty patriotism he answered the call of his country and enlisted in co. E., 25th Indiana Regiment under Capt. William Jones and was mustered in on August 19th, 1861, as Sergeant of his company. He rose by rapid advancement until on July 8th 1862, he was made a 1st Lieutenant of his company. He was engaged in some of the Civil War's hardest battles, among them being Fort Donaldson and Shiloh. He was severely wounded at the Battle of Hatchie River, having his right shoulder shot away by a cannon ball. From this would he suffered during his entire life. On account of this wound he was mustered out of the service and given an honorable discharge January 12th, 1863.
After the war was over his health had so improved that he was able to complete his education, which he did at Indiana University. He then returned to Rockport and entered upon his successful business career. January 30th, 1870, he was united in marriage with Miss Julia A. Dunigan, who is remembered as one of the city's most lovable characters, and with whom he lived in mutual devotion and love until her death February 6th, 1907. To this union were born two children; one son, Grant Jackson, who passed away at the age of 23 years and at the beginning of what promised to be a useful and prosperous business life; one daughter, Mrs. Maude Lang, who with her husband, Dr. Shirley C. Lang, and their two charming daughters, are left of his immediate family to mourn the loss of father and grandfather.
After the death of Mrs. Mason, Dr. and Mrs. Lang moved into the Mason home on Third Street in this city and continued to live with the father until death, enjoying and sharing in his cheerful and always bright companionship during health, and caring for him with most beautiful filial devotion during his sickness. On the evening of February 11th, 1920, after an enjoyable day with his family he was suddenly stricken with cerebral hemorrhage, from which he suffered until his end came at 8:30 o'clock p.m., November 22nd, 1921, at the advanced age of 79 years, 2 months and three days. The funeral will be held at the family residence on Third Street, Friday at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. Interment will be in Sunset Hill Cemetery.
Mr. Mason was an honored and devoted member of the G.A.R. This was one of his chief delights. Coupled with love of home and family was his love for his country. Descended from an ancestry on both sides of his parents family who had fought in the war of American Independence, he was justly proud of his own record in that he was not unfaithful to the legacy of patriotic devotion they had left him but had offered his all in defending and perpetuating the freedom which they had so hardly won. Mr. Mason's business Life was devoted somewhat to his farming interest, but principally to the banking business in this city. He founded the Old Rockport Bank and was its cashler for 35 years. By his conservative business policies and natural aptitude to the banking business he succeeded in making this bank one of the strongest institutions of its kind in Southern Indiana.
Mr. Mason was strongly attached to his home, his family, his town and his country. He was especially interested in Sunset Hill Cemetery, to which he voted much of his attention and means; and to him is due much of the credit or the elegance and beauty of the spot where his body will lie in perfect pose until the Master of all shall call it to eternal life.
The funeral will be conducted by Rev. R.R. Bryan, of Calumet, Mich., former pastor of Rockport circuit M.E. Church.
