You've seen this face looking out at you from this blog recently, and if you missed it, you can read about the buggy wreck here. I need to make a correction, however. Thomas A. Dulaney's middle name was not Alfred. My mistake was in copying other researchers' work and not verifying his full name. In census, newspaper and land records, there was only a middle initial of "A" to be found. The assumption was that the "A" stood for Alfred, so named for Alfred Dulaney and Alfred Senter. But actually, Thomas's middle name was Aron according to his death certificate. I had sent off for his death certificate back in the spring and had received it but not updated my records. The death certificate indicates that Tom died of carcinoma of the glans penis, a fairly rare form of cancer. He was 85 years old when he died on December 12, 1941. Dr. W. L. Orr signed the certificate. Interestingly, Bunt Tom's grandson Lawrence Orr Dulaney was named after Dr. Orr.
So there. As Don Dulaney would say.
