OBITUARY

Judge S. E. Stilwell died last Tuesday morning, after a short illness of Pneumonia. The funeral was held at the Episcopal church the following day, and was very largely attended. The ceremony at the grave was conducted by the Masonic fraternity, of which the deceased was a member.

Judge Stilwell was one of the few genuine old-time scouts, and has an enviable record for bravery and efficient service in the Southwest. He was born in Kansas in 1850, and while yet a boy started out for Texas to make a living for himself. Eventually he settles in Oklahoma and afterward moved to Cody. He had a host of friends among the old frontiersmen, who value a man for his bravery and nerve. At the time of his death he held the position of U. S. Commissioner here.

Note: Originally buried in Riverside Cemetery, Cody, Wyoming, moved to Old Trail Town in 1984.

My gt grandfather's hints at stories about his noted and notorious uncles led me to research your life. I'm so glad I found you so that my children and their children could know your stories. A niece, Monnette
