MILO G. BRINK LOCAL PIONEER PASSES SUNDAY - Was one of early pioneers of this region; Funeral held Wednesday.
One of Davenport's real pioneers answered the final roll call Sunday when Milo Griffiths Brink, age 69, passed away at his home in this city. Mr. Brink had suffered from asthma for some years, and had not been in the best of health all winter. He had a bad cold last week and finally suffered a stroke Saturday evening, never rallying until he finally passed away.
He was born in Missouri November 13, 1867, and came west to the Mondovi region in 1881 with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Brink, now deceased, crossing the plains by wagon train. As a young man he was engaged in the freighting and stage driving business, and he operated a livery stable here for many years. He served as a Lincoln county deputy sheriff for several years, and was a policeman in Davenport about 15 years ago. For 12 years he has been employed by the state highway department here.
Has Many Survivors
He was married March 23, 1891, to Ada Fannie King. She passed away April 8, 1910. His survivors include six daughters, Mrs. Anna Van Meter, Mrs. Roxie Nicholis, Mrs. Ruth Zeimantz, and Mrs. Billie Lueck of Davenport, Mrs. Dee Crandall of Clarkston and Mrs. Marguerite Warwick, who is in California; two sons, Joseph and Duane Brink of Davenport, and three sisters, Mrs. E J. McClure, Mondovi, Mrs. V. Davies and Mrs. Charles Littell of Spokane.
Funeral Here Yesterday.
The funeral was held at the Christian church in Davenport, at 1 p.m. yesterday, with the Rev. O. A. Adams of Cheney, formerly of Davenport, officiating. The Misses Cleo and Claire Fry sang, accompanied by Miss Ruth Downie.
