Thomas Fingar, Esq., died at his residence in the town of Germantown, on Tuesday, December 18, at the advanced age of eighty two years. Mr. Fingar was a man highly respected in the community where he resided and by all who knew him. His purity of character and modest but unfailing faithfulness to duty made him honored and beloved in the church to which he for many years belonged, and which he served for nearly half a century officially. Peaceful, uneventful lives like his leave little for the chronicler to record: but to have achieved a character like his is surely a virtue worth living for and a heritage of inestimable value to his descendants. - Obituary Hudson Evening Register Dec 10, 1883
