|Death: ||Feb. 23, 1909|
Thomas J. Galbraith, an old, well known and highly respected citizen of Cheyenne, who died at the home where he has been staying for the past few years, 408 East Twenty-ninth street, wait laid to rest Tuesday afternoon from the chapel, Rev. Moore officiating. Deceased was past 84 years of age, and had been a resident of Cheyenne for many years. He had at one time been a successful practicing attorney, but in later years had been living quietly in Cheyenne. His family of four sons and four daughters reside outside of the state. One of his sons is inspector general in the United States army, stationed at Salt Lake. Mr. Galbraith's death will be mourned by a number of friends in Cheyenne. The funeral was conducted from the Gleason undertaking parlors.
Deceased was past 86 years of age and was one of the best known residents of Cheyenne, having lived in Wyoming for the past 60 years. He had ridden the ranges, followed herds of sheep, worked in the mines and been employed at various duties in this part of the state, he had been retired from active life for some time, and though not around as much as usual the past few years, he retained his large circle of friends, who grieve at the death of a good friend and model neighbor.
Rev. Hills of the Presbyterian church conducted the funeral yesterday, and the floral offerings, which were beautiful and profuse, were mute reminders of the high esteem in which deceased was held by all who knew him.
