Deaths at Bodie.

Bodie, October 20th - Richard F. Brown, well known in California and Nevada, died here yesterday of consumption. The wife of Harvey Boone, of Boone & Wright, merchants, died to-day, as did Duncan M. McMillan, a lumber dealer. All three funerals occur tomorrow.

A Black Friday. Three Funerals Follow Each Other in One Day.

Friday was a sad day to many in Bodie, and indeed there were but few, even though they were not immediately concerned, who did not feel depressed as a result of the three funerals which occurred on that day...At 1 o'clock the funeral of Mrs. Harvey Boone occurred from Odd Fellows' Hall. Mr. Boone being a member of both the I.O.O.F. and the A.O.U.W., these organizations attended in regalia. Rev. F. M. Warrington delivered a brief and appropriate funeral discourse. The remains were followed to the grave by a large procession.

The contemplation of death at any time is sad, but on this occasion it is especially so...Mrs. Boon, who was an unusually devoted and unselfish wife, and mother, leaves three little ones, the eldest three and a half years old, the next eighteen months, and the youngest but ten days, all deprived of that gentle care which a mother alone can bestow. Sympathy is of but slight service to those whose hearts are bruised by these visitations of death, but of such value as it is it is (sic) freely extended by the community to those who have been so severely afflicted.
(Bodie Standard, 10/26/1881, Wednesday)
