ObituaryHis obituary was published on 2 February 1904 at The Morning Star, Glens Falls, Warren County, New York, and read, Philip Charles Thebo died at his home, corner of Broadway and Bridge street, at 11:45 o'clock Sunday night, aged sixty-eight years. Mr. Thebo, although a sufferer frmn rheumatism for nearly forty years, did not complain of being ill until half an hour previous to his death. He spent the evening wtih friends, most of the time at the rooms of the Fort Edward club. He too luncheon at the restaurant of his son, George W. Thebo, at 10:30 o'clock, and went across the street to his store. There he was taken wtih a pain in the arms. He went directly to his living aparttments in the same building and retired. Dr. Mott was called shortly after, and Mr. Thebo passed away whle conversing with the physician. Acute indigestion was given as the cause of death.

Mr. Thebo moved to Fort Edward from New York city in 1863 and opened a fruit and oyster store at the corner of Broadway and Bridge street. In 1900 he built the present brick structure on the site. Shortly after opening this store it was leased for two years to Crawford Brothers, composed of Theodore, James, Andrew and William John Crawford, and Mr. Thebo moved to Glen Falls, where, under the style of Thebo and Crane, Andrew Crane bneing his partner, he conducted a fruit store. Ar the expiration of the lease he again took pssession of the store here. He did a large retail and wholesale business in groceries, oysters, fruit and fish, and, in addition, carried a line of crockery.

In politics the deceased was a staunch Democrat. A primary without Mr. Thebo, even though he was troubled with rheumatism, was a rarity. He served six years as village trustee, and during his incumbency the water system was established. He was also treasurer of the water commission, and took an active interest in the project.

In social circles Mr. Thebo was a notable figure. He was always happy and companionable, and was rarely absent from the nightly gatherings of congenial spirits at the Fort Edward club. His death is the fifth in the membership of that organization, and three of the number died suddenly. Mr. Thebo led an exemplary life, and his industry, persistency and integrity brought him a good measure of success.

Mr. Thebo is survived by six children, George W., Philip C. Jr., William H., Fenwick M. of Watrow, Wash; Benjamin Franklin and Anna May. Mr. Thebo is also survivied by a sister, Mrs. Calista True, of Ashland, Ore. At the time of his death he was citizen member of the board of health.

The funeral will be held at two o'clock Wednesday afteroon from St. James Episcopal church and will be in charge of Fort Edward lodge, F. and A. M. The Rev. Ernest (?) Melville will officiate at the church, and M. W. O. O. Niles will direct the Masonic services at the grave.14
 
Funeral*His funeral was held at St. James' Episcopal Church, Fort Edward, Washington County, New York, on 3 February 1904.50 
BurialHe was buried on 3 February 1904 at Union Cemetery, Fort Edward, Washington County, New York.50 
ProbateHis estate was probated on 6 February 1904 at Salem, Washington County, New York, and his wife Mary Henrietta Chitty given letters of Administration.51 
Note*On the 1900 census, Philip stated that his father was born in Germany and his mother in France.

Married in 1862, in New York city, to Mary Henrietta Chitty, daughter of Charles and Mary Chitty, of Quebec, P.Q.

ObituaryHis obituary was published on 8 November 1915 in the The Post-Star, Glens Falls, Warren County, New York, and read,

While in a state of despondency due, it is said, to too close application to business, William H. Thebo, one of the best known residents of Fort Edward
committed suicide Saturday afternoon by hanging in his barn in that village. His lifeless body was discovered by his brother, Frank Thebo.

Thebo was associated with his brothers in the Broadway grocery business conducted under the firm name of M. H. Thebo. For some time he had been laboring unusually hard and at times acted strangely. His mother and brothers, it is said, did all in their power to divert his mind from the business, but during the Saturday afternoon rush In the store he left the building presumably for a short walk, as was his custom. This was shortly after 3 o'clock and it was the last time members of the family saw him alive.

Shortly after 6 o'clock his brother, Frank Thebo, went into the loft of the barn to throw hay down to a horse. In the dark he collided with an object. He hurried down to the store and summoned his brother. A lantern was secured and they returned to the barn loft where they found the cold and lifeless body of their brother .suspended by a rope from, a rafter and "several empty lard tubs near his feet". The body was "cut down and Coroner Stlllman gave permission for its removal to the young man's home.

Mr. Thebo was a highly respected young man and his close confinement to business at all times had, it is understood, impaired his health, and brought him to the state of mind which prompted him to end his life. Besides his mother, he is survived by one sister, Mrs. Anna Wright of Warrensburg, and four brothers, George W., P. C. and B. F. Thebo of Fort Edward and Fenwick Thebo of Phoenix, Idaho. He was a member of the Fort Edward club and an honorary member of the Satterlee Hose company.12
 
ObituaryHis obituary was published on 12 November 1915 in the Granville Sentinel, Granville, Washington County, New York, and read,

William H. Thebo of Fort Edward committed suicide Saturday night by hanging himself in a barn adjoining the Thebo home. The last time the man was seen alive was Saturday afternoon, when after waiting on several customers at the grocery store which he conducted, he left the place.

No trace of him was found until his brother, Frank, went to the barn to feed the horses. Going to the hay loft in the darkness, he came in contact with the body.

Thebo, who was about twenty-five years old, had conducted the grocery store in partnership with his brother, and the reason given by his parents for his act was financial troubles.

Thebo had been acting strangely of late and his parents, fearing that something preyed on his mind, had been urging him to take a vacation.10
