Apr 19, 1906, Craig Courier, Craig, Moffat Co., Colorado:
Death of Henry Hoy.
A letter from J.S. Hoy of Brown's park, received too late for the last issue of the Courier, announces the sad death of Harry Hoy, brother of J.S. Harry Hoy was quite well known thruout the length of Routt county as he has taken an active interest in republican politics for a number of years. He with his brother were among the earliest settlers in Routt county, survived the reign of lawlessness in Browns park some years ago when their brother V.S. Hoy was killed while acting as deputy sheriff, and have always taken an active participation in the affairs of the eastern end of the country. Some four or five years ago Henry Hoy returned from Alaska where he had been prospecting and owing to the severe hardships of that region was stricken with paralysis. Partially recovering from this he fell a victim to stomach troubles which finally caused his death, succumbing after 35 days of fasting. His occurred the night of April 4, 1906, and he is buried in the park on the 6th, near the scene of the greater part of his life's labors, beloved by his many neighbors who regret his departure from their midst.
A Brown's Park pioneer, Henry Hoy was the prosecuting witness who brought arson charge against Angus McDougal, Isom Dart, and Jack Fitch, while Adea Hoy charged McDougal and Dart with altering brands on three of his horses. Among witnesses subpoenaed for the defense were Elizabeth Bassett, Sam Bassett, Jr., and Thomas Davenport. Angus McDougal was convicted on both counts and was sentenced on October 8, 1890 to serve five years in the Colorado State Penitentiary. Isom Dart escaped from the Hahn's Peak jail and was never brought to trial, and the indictment against Fitch was quashed.
