Fort Worth Star-Telegram Report
Description: Denison Editor Dead; Was Ill But Week. Elwin A. Thompson
Victim of Peritonitis--End Comes in Hospital at Sherman.
Date: October 7 1910

Denison, Texas, Oct. 7.--Elwin A. Thompson, editor of the Denison Herald, is dead at his home here. The end came at 9:20 last night in the hospital at Sherman and was due to peritonitis, from which he had suffered but one week.
When stricken an operation was intended, but when he was taken to the hospital his condition was so serious it was decided to forego this until he improved enough to permit it. He grew gradually worse, however, and it was apparent yesterday that the end was near.
Mr. Thompson was born in Vermont forty years ago, and came to Denison seventeen years ago. The Denison Herald was then for sale and Mr. Thompson purchased the property, one or more friends being associated with him.
Twelve years ago he married Miss Margaret Balkey of Kansas City, who survives him, with two children, Elwin and Jane. His father, L.S. Thompson is now a citizen of Denison. He leaves one sister, Mrs. R.C. Hearne of Fort Worth.
