"AMOS HORTON IS DEAD
Passed Peacefully Away at the Home of Mr. and Mrs. Dow
On Sunday, July 6, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. L. A. Dow, occurred the death of Amos S. Horton. For the past few years Mr. Horton had failed rapidly, although he had been confined to his bed for only on week when death, peaceful as sleep, fell upon him. He was buried from the home of Mr. and Mrs. Dow on Monday afternoon. Dr. Stewart, of Tacoma, preached the funeral service, and the music was furnished by friends. The interment took place at the I.O.O.F. cemetery.
Amos S. Horton was born at Pawtucket, Rhode Island, July 6, 1829. In early childhood, with his parents he moved to Providence. Here he attended the public schools and later opened an oyster shop. Soon after the Civil War he went to live in Minneapolis where he engaged in market gardening. In 1879 he retired from business and from that time until his death he made his home with Mr. Dow's family, following them from Minneapolis to Spokane, Washington, and afterwards to Kent.
As a man, Mr. Horton was singularly kind hearted and as a friend, true. He will be missed and mourned by the family with whom he has resided for twenty-three years. Mr. Horton is survived by a widowed sister, Mrs. Kate Welch of Minneapolis, and an older brother, Joseph R. Horton of Wickford, Rhode Island."
