Organized Seattle Chapter of Delta Upsilon Fraternity--Was Prominent Mason

Nehemiah N. Denton, a civil war veteran, said to be the oldest living member of the Delta Upsilon Fraternity, one of the organizers of the Seattle chapter, died at Port Orchard, late Tuesday evening. He was 73 years of age.

Born in Canandaigua, N.Y., where he received his early schooling, Mr. Denton later completed his education at the University of Rochester. At the outbreak of the civil war he joined the First regiment, New York engineers. At the close of the struggle he moved to California, locating at Sacramento, where he was married and resided for an even half century. He took an active part in church and Y.M.C.A. work and was also prominently identified with the Masonic Lodge, of which he was a member.

Surviving relatives include his widow, Mary E. Denton, and a son, Frank L. Denton, of Seattle, and a brother, Charles H. Denton, of Sacramento. Funeral services will be held at the Bonney-Watson chapel Saturday afternoon, at 1:30 o'clock. The body will be shipped to Sacramento for interment.
