Afton, Wyoming. Aug 14 - Phineas cook an old and respected citizen of this place, succumbed to the final call July 24th, at the age of eighty-one years.

Brother Cook's life has been an eventful one. He embraced the Gospel in 1844, arrived in Salt Lake City in 1847. Being a carpenter and millwright by trade he has bee a useful man. He made the first table Brigham Young ate off after arriving in Utah, which is still preserved and kept as a relic by Mrs. Zina D. H. Young, also assisted in building the Lion house. He was the first watermaster Salt Lake City ever had, being appointed by Brigham Young and H. C. Kimball shortly after the arrival of the pioneers. He built the first mill in Sanpete county, ad was the first man to settle in Goshen, Utah Co., and named the place after the village in which he was born. He was one of a party who explored Bear Lake valley, and named the lake "Bear Lake," having an interesting time chasing four bears across the ice on the lake.

The funeral services were very impressive. Patriarchs Archibald Gardner and C. D. Cazier, who had been acquainted with deceased for a period of fifty years, were the speakers. The floral offerings were elegant and profuse, and a large cortege followed the remains to their last resting place in the Afton cemetery.".
