Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 20, 1844
Death: Mar. 4, 1898

1st Wife of T. B. Bruce. The children of Thomas Benjamin Bruce and Harriet Elizabeth Wright were mostly stable business men or housewives, leading typical lives in rural and small town areas of Georgia, but there was one exception. Robert Pryor Bruce was that exception, being the colorful member of the family, who heard a different drumbeat. Sandwiched near the middle of the first set of children among his five sisters he answered the call of adventure and went west as a young man. He died in Lander, Wyoming,1942,away from all his family and never married. He left in his will, written in 1834 some shares of stock, some cash, a pair of elks teeth, and some guns. After his death, almost ten years later, the guns , which were to go to the Lander Rifle Club, were never found. His cash and stock had grown to $4,500. His five sisters; one brother; Stepmother, Alice Franks Bruce; Bishop Randall Hospital in Lander; and his "friend for the last 25 years", A.J. "Stub" Farlow; were each to receive a nineth share of his estate. "Stub" was also to get his clothes, trinkets, and his treasured pair of elks teeth. "Stub" feeling he did not deserve the treasured teeth sent them to Clifford Bruce "the only brother of said deceased". "Stub" Farlow is the bucking horse rider on the State of Wyoming license plate. The oldest, continuous license plate logo in the nation. #51887554
