In interview with Evelyn L. Burns:

"She said that "Uncle Tom" died in Louisville, Ky., though she cannot

remember the date. Nor can she remember his wife's name as she died many

years before Tom did. "Uncle Tom" stayed with the Frank Lewter family

for awhile after his wife's death though my mother cannot remember the

years that he did." --John V. Burns
