Son of Edward Bagley and Julie Ann Grant Bagley

Pioneer, for 42 Years Resident of Big Cottonwood, Hero Until Death.

The heroic efforts of Charles S. Bagley, pioneer Utahn, in assisting to put out a fire which threatened the Clover Leaf dairy farm near his home in Big Cottonwood canyon, about three months ago, finally caused his death at 8 o'clock yesterday morning:. The over-exertion, in fighting the flames was too much for his seventy-seven years, and since that time he had steadily grown weaker until his death came at his country home in the canyon yesterday. He had been identified with the up-building of Utah and the intermountain west since 1850, having
taken a prominent part in many of the big movements which built up the state.

Charles S. Bagley was born in the province of New Brunswick, Canada, on January 30, 1835, the son of Edward Bagley and Julia Ann Grant. In 1850 he and his parents became members of the Mormon church, and in 1855 they left New Brunswick, went to St. Louis by rail, took a steamboat up the Missouri river to Council Bluffs and from there came overland to Salt
Lake valley with the company, which was headed by Seth M. Blair.

En route the company was overtaken by cholera and Charles Bagley lost his mother and two brothers on the plains. When he arrived here he went into the lumber business with the late Feramorz Little and Charles Decker. Later he settled on Mill Creek. On October 27, 1861,
he was married to Julia Ann Hanson by the late Bishop David Brinton of Big Cottonwood. In 1871 Mr. Bagley moved with his family to the canyon and made it his home until the time of his death. He is survived by his widow and the following children: E. C. Bagley, Brinton, Utah; Andrew H. Bagley, East Mill Creek, Utah; Frank E. Bagley, Salt Lake; Attorney Grant C. Bagley, Provo; Mrs. Maynetta B. King, wife of Major S. A. King; Mrs. Julia B. Hills, Mrs. Estella B. Cutler and Miss Zola Bagley, all of this city. He is also survived by his brothers, John Bagley of Montpelier, Ida.; William Bagley of Charleston, Utah; Edward A. Bagley of Grass Valley, Utah,
and Hyrum A. Bagley of Brinton, Utah, and one sister, now residing in Iowa.

Mr. Bagley had been intimately connected with the development of Utah. He assisted in the construction of the Union Pacific railway through Wyoming and Utah and also assisted in the construction of the first telegraph line access Utah and through Nevada. In 1872 he formed a partnership with the late Francis M. Armstrong, and for sixteen years they were engaged in the
lumber business and operated numerous sawmills in Big Cottonwood canyon.

For years Mr. Bagley was extensively engaged in the cattle and horse business in western Utah. In recent years, however, his age had caused him to discontinue his business affairs, and he lived quietly at his country home in Big Cottonwood canyon. Up to the time of his over-exertion at the dairy fire he was in excellent health, but failed rapidly afterward.
