Obituary from old newspaper clipping. Newspaper and date of publication are unknown:
"Milton Claypool Harper one of the pioneer settlers of Whitman County, WA died at his home on Alkali Flat Sunday morning last May 22, 1887 from the effects of injuries received while hauling lumber the day before. It seems that one of the horses hitched to the wagon became restless while Mr. Harper was unloading and to quiet the animal he prodded it with a board, which the horse kicked. The unfortunate man was standing at the rear end of the wagon and the board propelled backward by the kick struck him with great force in the region of the stomack (sic) inflicting injuries which resulted in his death.
