Aug. 27, 1896 Rangely Rio Blanco County Colorado, USA
The following is taken from A book "Stories About The White River Vally" by Cecil Vincent Gross. When haying time came my father was helping Mr. J.M. Walsh with his hay. They were raising some derrick poles. A pully broke and hit my father on the head. My father never regained consciousness. My father is buried in a home cemetery on the Banta ranch. The Banta ranch is about three miles below Rangely, Colorado.
