Birth: unknown
Death: Oct. 18, 1899
Carbon County
Wyoming, USA

The remains of W.H. Edwards, foreman at the Carbon coal mines, who was accidentally killed by a falling rock while alone in the mines Wednesday, were brought to this city on train No. 4 today for interment in the city cemetery. They were accompanied by the daughter and son-in- law of the deceased, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Lynch, and by about fifty citizens of Carbon and friends of the family, including an escort of Odd Fellows and Knights of Pythias, in both, of which orders the deceased had membership.

Information of the coming of the funeral party was not received here until 11o'clock today and for this reason none of the lodges had time to turn out as a body, but there were representatives of each fraternity at the depot to meet the train and join in the procession that followed the remains to the home of Mr. and Mrs. George Lynch, the son-in-law and daughter of the deceased.

The delegation from Carbon wore rich mourning badges, but did not appear in regalia and while a large number of Odd Fellows and Knights of Pythias attended the funeral at 2 o'clock this afternoon, the service was conducted by a minister and the ritual ceremonies were omitted.
