Thomas Hook obituary, Columbus, Indiana, Friday October 18, 1878:

ANOTHER GONE Thomas Hook Newbern, Ind.
Again we are called upon to record the death of an old man of 83 year, who died in his home in Newburn last night, of old age and general debility. He has been a citizen of this county for a number of years, and by his straightforward life he has won the respect of all who knew him. He has been very feeble for some time, and his death, though not unexpected, casts a gloom over the community in which he lived, and his neighbors will not soon forget old Uncle Tommy.

From People's Guide for Bartholomew Co., Clifty Township, 1874:

CLIFTY TOWNSHIP is located on the east side of the county, and is bounded as follows: On the north by Haw Creek Township; on the east by Decatur County; on the south by Rock Creek, and on the west by Clay, and contains an area of (20) twenty square miles. The surface is generally level or rolling. Except the breaks along the creeks the soil is very rich and productive, and the farm improvements of this township are scarcely second to any other in the county. Its only village is Newbern, situated in the northwest part of the township. The church and school privileges of the township are good; the citizens enterprising and industrious. Some of the first settlers of the township were Wm. McClintic, Francis Miller and Thomas Hook .


From People's Guide for Bartholomew Co., Clifty Township, 1874, page 299:

Hook, Thomas ; retired farmer; 1 & 1/2 miles south east of Newbern. Born in Maryland 1799; settled in Bartholomew County, 1826, Democrate, Universalist.


From Bartholomew County History, 1888:

Clifty and Clay Townships, -- These two townships having been under one organization until 1842, we shall consider them as one in giving their school history. William Morris, a young teacher from Pennsylcania, taught the first school in this township in 1822-23, on the south bank of Clifty, about two miles west of Newbern, where General Charles Scott's Army crossed Clifty on their expedition against the Indians in May, 1791. George D. Roland, Mrs. Sally Hook , Mrs. Luke Covert, and perhaps others yet living, attended this school.
