Dallas R. Cowhick, one of the city's best known and highly respected citizens, died at his home on Eddy Street at half past 9 o'clock this morning. Since last Friday, he has been steadily sinking and the end when it came was very peaceful.
Dallas Roe Cowhick was born on 20 June, 1848, at Balls Mill, Virginia. Upon becoming of age he followed the milling business until he removed to this city.
He came to Cheyenne in 1880, entering the dry goods house of his brother, the late O.F. Cowhick, where he remained until he went into business for himself, opening The Fair. He continued quite successfully in this until his election to the office of county clerk, the duties of which he discharged for two terms with ability.
About two years ago, during the closing months of his county clerkship, the first symptoms of the dread disease to which Mr. Cowhick has finally succumbed became noticeable, and the greater part of his time since then has been spent in futile but courageous attempts to regain his health.
Mr. Cowhick's condition became serious last October, but hoping to find benefit in a change of climate he spent the summer near his old home in the east.
He did not improve, however, and a few weeks ago returned that his last days might be spent with his family and the friends with whom he had so long been associated.
He was a tireless worker in the Methodist Episcopal Church and with an intermission of but one year was superintendent of its Sunday school from the time of his arrival here until his declining health forbad further service.
He was prominent in the Masonic circles and was also a member of the Woodmen of the World, in which society he carried several thousand dollars insurance. He was also insured in the Mutual and other companies.
His is survived by his wife, two daughters, Mrs. George Gorton, of Crawford, Neb., and Miss Larue of the state geologist's office, and one son, Glen, who has recently completed a course of law at Washington D. C.
