This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biographical information, submitted December 2005, is being provided by Richard F. Lease, a collector of the works of Thomas Benjamin Pope.

  "Thomas Benjamin Pope was born in New York City in 1834, a son of Benjamin Pope.  Prior to the War Between the States, he moved to Newburgh, NY.
    When the Civil War began, he enlisted in the Union Army, becoming a 2nd Lieut. in the first company of the 56th NY Volunteers.  This was the famous Tenth Legion, under the command of Captain Thomas S. Marvel.  Pope was wounded during the raid made by Stewart's Cavalry in the valley of the Potomac.
    After Appomattox, he returned to Newburgh and devoted himself to his life-long desire of painting. While he had a natural talent for drawing and painting, his art career took active form from the year 1854.  He developed a reputation in water colors as well as in oils.  He did some designing, but his first love was original paintings, preferably landscapes.
    On May 6, 1891, Pope had gone to Fishkill Landing to give an art lesson.   Upon his return to the ferry, a fast train of the NY Central and Hudson River struck and killed him instantly.  His untimely death at the age of 57 cut short a promising artistic career."

Part of a biography from The Historical Society of Newburgh Bay and the Highlands Publication No. XL, Newburgh, NY 1955:
From The New York Historical Society's Dictionary of Artists in America (1564-1860):
    "Thomas Benjamin Pope, landscape, genre, and still life painter (1834-1891).  Born in New York, Pope was a liquor dealer in Newburgh, NY before he became a painter.  He exhibited several crayon drawings at the American Institute in 1845 and 1849.  After service in the Civil War, in which he was wounded, he returned to Newburgh where he painted landscapes and fruit pieces from which color advertisements were made. 

He was killed by a train at Fishkill Landing, NY in 1891."
