Laid to Rest.
The death on Monday of DeLos E. Bair, takes from out midst one of western Wyoming's territorial pioneers. He had been a most patient sufferer for some time and was prepared to meet his death, which came at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Fred S. Boyce.
Mr. Bair was born at Kaysville, Utah, Dec. 6, 1850, and was buried on his fifty-fourth anniversary. He was one of the first to locate on the Lewiston flats in southeastern Idaho, where he resided with his wife and children until the death of Mrs. Bair came twenty-one years ago. He came into this country and located at Big Piney in 1885, moving into the valley of the Green river in 189?, locating what is now known as the George Hennick ranch. The latchstring was always on the outside for those who came his way, and his genial hospitality warmed the heart of many a weary traveler. His early days were spent trapping and his whole life had been spent in this western country.
He leaves to mourn his loss two sisters-
Mrs. F.M. Tartar and
Mrs. D.A. Winn,
one daughter, Mrs. F.S. Boyce, and
one son, George C., who is in South Pass.
The funeral was a most impressive one occurring in the Pinedale school house on Tuesday afternoon, Judge H. C. Johnson reading the funeral service. The interment occurred in the Pinedale cemetery.
