Excerpt from obituary: He was born in Swindon, England, fifty-three years ago. He came to this country in 1872 and entered his trade, that of a printer, in New York where he labored a good many years. He came west in 1884 settling in Mobeetie (Wheeler Co), Texas from which place he came to Cheyenne in 1893. He has lived here since, owning and operating the Sunbeam until some eighteen months ago, when he retired on account of ill health. He married in 1892 to Miss Georgie Sesse whom he leaves a widow with five little boys.
