Until a few Days before his death his physicians pronounced him almost a Well Man and had advised his family that there was no doubt of his Complete recovery. In fact he had so far recovered Bis usual health that his physicians had advised him to return Home and he was expected soon when news was received that he was suffering from an attack of Erysipelas which threat ened serious consequences.

We Are indebted to the Richmond dispatch for the following Cut and sketch of his career a sue Tell of tils career. Judge Thomas Gunter was born in a coma county va., january 18,1s31. His and Mahala both of Sterling Eastern Shore Stock and Jud the Benjamin t. Gunter. Strong religious principles being members of the Baptist Church. Joseph Gunter began life As a poor Man but by patient Well directed Industry he soon acquired a Fine estate. His wife was a granddaughter of Captain William Polk a Soldier of the revolution who resided in Brad Ford s neck on the Seaside of acco Mac. Joseph Gunter died in 1834 and his wife survived him Only a few years. They left two Jamin and his sister Elizabeth who is the wife of Thomas c. Pitts the present owner of near Onancock once the Home of Henry a. Wise i after the death of their parents the two orphan children went to live in the family of their Kinsman Cap Tain Samuel Waples who had served in the War of 1812, and whose father had been an officer in the revolution. Here the two children continued to enjoy the Fine training that had been begun at their Home. After attend ing a neighbourhood school fora nuts her of years they were sent away to to Baltimore and Benjamin to Richmond College. Young Gunter subsequently attended the University of Virginia where he completed the course of study in Law before he was of Legal age. Shortly after entering University he became desperately homesick and Wouldhave returned to his Home on the Eastern Shore but there was no Railroad connection in those Days Between the University and Eastern Virginia and the homesick youth naturally shrank from the thought of making his Way alone Back to Bis native Eastern Shore through a wide stretch of unknown country and across the Chesa Peake Bay. Judge Gunter always considered this the turning Point in his career and thanked the kindly fates that threw such obstacles in his Way to prevent his return Home at this crucial period of his life. But the determination to succeed in life had been Strong in Young Gunter and Hope of honorable Fame beckoned to him from afar. Returning Home from the univer sity he was admitted to the bar and soon thereafter was elected common wealth s attorney for Accomac. Among the famous lawyers then practising in the courts of the Eastern Shore were Thomas h. Bayly Henry a. Wise and Myers w. Fisher. Shortly after Young Gunter was elected Commonwealth s attorney he had to prosecute Tully Lilliston and his Paramour Betsy Simpson for killing Thomas Budd near acco Mac courthouse. Henry a. Wise conducted the defence with All his ability but the Young common wealth s attorney made such a plucky fight that he won the Case and succeeding in sending Tully Lilliston and the woman to the Penitentiary for a Long period. After the trial was ended Wise was heard to say that there was nothing that could daunt or shake the courage of that Young bulldog Gunter who held fast till he accomplished his purpose. This Legal tilt with so famous an advocate As Henry a. Wise brought the Young attorney at once into prominence and made his future secure. Soon after coming to the bar he married Bliss Ellen Fisher a Young Lidyof Lovely Christian character. She was the daughter of John Fisher of Northampton and a Niece of Myers w. Fisher who with the late William h. B. Custis represented the Eastern Shore in the secession convention. From this Union sprang seven sons and two daughters. An uncompromising As the civil War approached judge Gunter War elected colonel of the Accomac Volunteer troops and took an Active part in the defence of this Section against the invading Federal forces under general Lockwood. was subsequently arrested and con lined in fort Mchenry with the late Severn Teackle Wallis of Maryland and other Southern sympathizers. After remaining there for some Tifilo lie was released on parole and came Back to his Home where he was con stantly annoyed by the Federal sol Diers who regarded him As an uncompromising rebel. After the War he formed a Law partnership with his life Long Friend John w. Gillett who had for Many years been clerk of Accomac county court and who in after years became judge of that county court. They enjoyed a Large and lucrative prac Tice. In 1880, Hon. George t. Garri son judge of the circuit court was elected to Congress from this District and when he resigned the former position governor Holiday appointed judge Gunter to fill the vacancy but when the general Assembly met in the Winter of 1881- 82, the read Juster majority elected Hon. William t. Fitchett of Northampton. The term expired in 18s4, Ana the democrats then being in the majority in the general Assembly elected judge Gutter and enlarged the circuit by including in it a number of counties on the Peninsula Between the James and the York. Judge Gunter was re elected four years ago and his career on the Bench has been so just and honorable and his decisions so fair As to win for him the respect of All the attorneys who have practice in his courts. In fact no judge in Vir Ginia has gained a More enviable reputation for just decisions or made More warm friends among the attorneys practising in his courts than has judge Gunter. has been especially kind and helpful to the Young and inexperienced attorneys in his circuit who always speak of him in terms of the warmest Friend ship Aud gratitude. A staunch Democrat. Judge Gunter had been from Early youth an uncompromising jeffersonian and jacksonian Democrat he served As chairman of the county committee for Many years and was for some time a member of the state Central committee of the democratic party. Up to the time that he was elevated to the Bench he was an Active and aggressive Campaign speaker striking hard blows for hi6 Paity whenever he found an antagonist. Away Back in the Days follow ing the reconstruction Era he met and routed the Republican leaders that invaded this part of Virginia and in the Days of readjusted domination such men As general Mahone Parson Massey and colonel Lamb Felt the weight of his powerful Arm. The democratic party in Vir Ginia never had a truer son or a braver defender. was a Delegate to the National democratic Conven tion of 1876 that nominated Tilden and Hendricks. In 1880, he was a candidate for the democratic nomination for Congress in this District but his friends finding that the nomination would probably go to a dark horse brought Forward judge George t. Garrison of Accomac and succeeded in giving him the Nomina tion. In 1879 judge Gunter lost his wife and four years later his oldest 6on, Alfred Gunter a Bachelor of arts of Richmond College and a master of arts of the University of Virginia who upon the retirement of his father from Active practice had formed a Law partnership with the Hon. John w. G. Blackstone now judge of Accomac county court was taken from him by the insidious disease of consumption. And in the space of a few More years three other sons All file Manly Fellows and All highly educated and thoroughly equipped for useful and honorable careers were carried off by the same disease leaving him three children still . John w. Edmonds of Accomac courthouse. Miss Bessie Gunter and Benjamin t. Gunter jr., the present common wealth s attorney of Accomac. An advocate of education. Judge Gunter was a Strong advocate of higher education. Not Only did he give his own children the Best educational advantages but he encouraged others to educate their children. w i8 the steadfast Friend and Patron of the Onancock Academy As Long As it existed and afterwards of the Margaret Academy. was for Many years a trustee of Richmond College and always had its Best interests at heart. was also a Strong Friend of the University of Virginia. Several years ago judge Gunter married mrs. Slater a widow residing at Belle Haven in the lower part of Accomac who still survives. Judge Gunter had Long been a member of the Baptist Church and for Many years he served As Modera tor of the Accomac Baptist association. Every one who knew him will agree that he was the highest Type of a Christian gentleman. For a full Quarter of a Century he had been a member of Ocean Lodge of masons. At Willow Bank 1 his Beautiful Home on the Seaside of Accomac where he lived nearly All the Days of his life he dispensed a Graceful and generous hospitality preserving the usages and traditions of the Vir givians of the Olden time. No Man Ever enjoyed to a greater degree the Confidence and esteem of the people among whom he lived. was a kind neighbor and a True Friend and if he did not like a Man he did not try to conceal it. Deceit and hypocrisy found no Lodgment in his honest heart. loved Virginia with All the passionate Devotion of a True son and like the Loyal Eastern Shoreman that he was he loved Best of All the fair and fruitful Peninsula that had always been his Home. When in the coming years men shall recall the names and Virtues of those who have lived on the Eastern Shore in this generation they May Well say of this Model citizen and incorruptible judge what Mark Antony said of the dead Caesar this was the noblest roman of them All. His life was gentle and the ele ments so mixed in him that nature might stand up and say to All the world this was a Mill Ali it. Tui Ikuno or.
