      Summary: The sudden death of Thomas Marter, of former resident of Moorestown, which occurred in Washington at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Fisher, on Friday, recalls to mind a well known figure in county (not readable) a quarter of a century ago. Mr. Marter was an ardent Republican and took a great deal of interest in party affairs. At one time he was an aspirant for the office of Sheriff. He was 74 years of age. The funeral was held yesterday at Moorestown from the home of his daughter. The deceased is survived by four grown children.
