Residence Place: Arlington, Massachusetts
Occupation: Gardener
Publication Title: Arlington, Massachusetts, City Directory, 1910

I was unable to find him in Massachusetts Death Records to 1915, or in the Index 1901-1980. The Arlington Town Clerk does not have a record of his death. However, he was in the 1910 directory for Arlington, but not in 1912. In the 1912 directory, his wife's name was Mrs. Thomas Gass, but it did not say widow of Thomas. Mary said she was married in the 1920 census, but widowed by 1930.

He is not the Thomas Gass, born 1877 on PEI, in Saskatchewan in the 1921 census- that is a cousin with the same name.

Possible he died before 1921?
