Thomas Probert - Gone But Not Forgotten

Seven years after Thomas' death, this story appeared in the Mt. Sterling Sentinel:

I love that Thomas and Judge Elliott thought to put a bottle of whiskey in a wall of the new court house as it was being rebuilt in 1870.

Of course, I had to find out a little more about the whisky produced by Howard Barnes & Co. The Mt. Sterling Sentinel published this article in their April 22, 1869 edition.

Sounds like they picked a good brand.
