Joseph F. McClintock, who died at the county hospital early Saturday morning, was buried Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the Rev. Albert Pfaus officiating at the funeral. Burial was in Lewistown cemetery in a private lot purchased by some of the friends of the deceased and was attended by Frank Day, William Wonderland, J.P. Barnes, J.E. Murray, Edward Brassey, Dan Crowley, George Wiedeman, Jacob Holzemer and others. The friends of Mr. McClintock have also subscribed sufficient money to pay his funeral expenses.

Joseph McClintock was born in Kentucky about 1835 and subsequently moved to Platte county, Missouri, with his parents. In July of the year 1865 he came up the Missouri River as far as Fort Benton, the head of navigation upon that stream, and from there went to Helena. Almost immediately he took up residence in Meagher county, where he soon became recognized as one of its most substantial citizens. Up to the time he came to Lewistown he had resided almost continuously in Meagher county, and at one time was an owner of considerable property in the way of horses and cattle. He was elected a delegate to the first constitutional convention ever held in Montana, but the constitution framed by the assembly was never adopted and and its labors were allowed to elapse. In the year 1871, Mr. McClintock was elected one of the assessors of Meagher county. In 1880 Mr. McClintock was elected treasurer of Meagher county, and upon expiration of his first term was again chosen to fill this office. In politics Mr. McClintock was a Democrat of the old school. He came to Lewistown shortly after his retirement from office in Meagher county, and had once been a candidate of his party in this county. This was in 1894 when he ran for the office of county clerk and recorder against W.S. Perkins, but was defeated. Mr. McClintock's ambition appeared to die along with his political prospects, and since that time he has led an existence which has been a perpetual struggle against poverty and want. He has subsisted for a number of years, doing but little work, and a large part of the time being wholly dependent on charity of his friends. The deceased was never married but was said to have been highly connected in Missouri and Kentucky. He had many good qualities of both the head and heart, and his presence will be greatly missed by the small coterie of old-timers who have known him in the days of his manhood and his pride. The cause of Mr. McClintock's death was dysentery.
