David Lindsay's Body Recovered
Victim of Kirwin Snow Slide Died in Sight of His Brother

David E. Lindsay was instantly killed by a snow slide on Meadow creek in Kirwin, at 4:15, Saturday evening. December 28th, and although everything possible was done, his body was not recovered till Tuesday morning. It having been found quite a distance from where it was supposed to be by his brother, who saw him stricken down.

Mr. Lindsay and his brother, J.H. Lindsay, had passed over the same trail about an hour before together in going to look at some work that had been done about a half of a mile from their cabin, and in returning they separated, J. H. having given his brother the choice of trails going back, who took the lower trail. J. H. Lindsay was on the ridge but about 100 feet above where David was on the lower trail: they had stopped and were talking concerning some work where David was when the slide started from near where J. H. stood, and he warned his brother who attempted to get the opposite bank, but the snow was so deep he only made one leap and in a second's time was crushed and buried before his brother's eyes. Strange to relate, it was not long ago that J. H. Lindsay was blown up by a premature blast of giant powder and supposed to have been instantly killed while David was looking at him, but was more fortunate, getting out with no very serious injury.

The brothers were about half a mile from their cabin when David was killed and they had no shovels with them., and as soon as J. H. saw that he could not get his brother out he went to the cabin of Mr. A.J. Nelson for shovels and Mr. Felson and J.W. Wright who were coming from their work and were the only other persons in that part of the mountains immediately responded to the call for help; and remained doing all they could till the body was found and taken down the mountain.

Failing to find the body Saturday night word was sent to Kirwin and Daniel Whyte, Roy Gallinger, Erick Newgard and Ed Sanderson volunteered to go to the rescue while others made all necessary arrangements their coming down, and remained until they helped bring the body out. The place where the accident occurred was about 2 miles from the main road and there were many . dangerous places to be crossed going up and down the trail and the men deserve great credit for their response to the appeal for help.

Mr. Lindsay was working for C. L. Tewksbury, for whom he had been working mostly .. years and by whom he was greatly respected. The rescue party not returning Monday and no word from them thought that they had been over taken by an avalanche and killed began to be considered and Mr. Tewksbury after having done everything necessary for the reception of the body, and knowing the danger they had gone through early Tuesday morning started up the trail, after leaving word if he were caught also to try and get enough men to get them some way, met the men about half way from camp coming out.

David E. Lindsay in four more days would have been 62 years old, he has a family in Byron, Wyo., where his wife and several children await his coming with sad hearts. Mr. Furnst very kindly contributed a team for transporting the men to and from the foot of the trail. While there is at present not as much snow at Kirwin as the average for the past ten years, yet the strong west wind has filled the ravines and made many dangerous places.

This afternoon the funeral services were held over the remains of David E. Lindsay of Byron, who was killed at Kirwin mines several days ago. The body has been held until relatives from out of state could arrive. The deceased was a prominent man in affairs of the colonies and well known in church circles. - Lovell Chronicle
