Susanville, California Nov. 24. Special

The last of the pioneers of Northeastern California who were associated with Issac Rupp and Peter Lassen is dead at the age of 92.

He is Isiah H. (Boy) Hallet, a veteran of Indian Wars and of scouting expeditions for the United States Army in the sixties.

The appelation "boy" was given him by Chief Winnemucca, leader of the powerful Piaute tribe with whom Hallet and others conducted treaties of peace on behalf of the new white settlers to Honey Lake Valley.

He was only eighteen at the time of the expeditions to the Indian Chiefs headquarters which continued on a weekly basis for some time as negotiations dragged.

Up to the last month Hallet was active in his garden, growing enough food for his own consumption and refusing government relief of any kind and was particularly vehement against the $30 every Thursday proposition on the recent California ballot.

Hallett was a native of Marion coming to Kansas while a boy and then to Honey Lake Valley in 1862.

Funeral services will be held in Susanville tomorrow morning at 10:00 o'clock, with burial following in the Janesville Cemetery.

He is survived by three children.Vesper O. Hallett of Washington, Zeno J. Hallett of Campbell, California and Mrs. Joseph McDaniel of Standish, California.

Isiah was the husband of my mother's Aunt Margaret although she was known as Elsie..
