Another Pioneer of Mono County Called to Rest.
Peter Geelhoed, for fifty years a resident of Benton and neighborhood, died at his home at Black Lake, about ten miles from that town, on Friday, June 6th, of ills of advanced age. He was 84 years old, a native of Holland. Mr. Geelhoed arrived in Benton in 1875 and the following year went back to Holland, where he was married. He brought his bride back to the camp, where the family home has since been. The wife and mother passed on, leaving two sons, Peter and Henry, and a daughter, now Mrs. Frank Salque, of Big Pine. Mr. Geelhoed, almost a pioneer of the section, had many acquaintances, in whose esteem he stood well, in both Mono and Inyo counties. - The Inyo Register.
