Stockton Heth, Long Ill, Dead

Stockton Heth, 69, Omaha business man for many years, died Sunday night of pneumonia at an Omaha hospital. His health had been poor for several years.

Mr. Heth was born in Nebraska City, the son of John Heth, early Indian trader. Coming to Omaha in young manhood, he became connected with the old Omaha Water company, and for some time was its treasurer.

Later he became manager for the Nicholas Oil company, was retained in that position when it changed hands and retired when the company was taken over by the Standard Oil a few years ago. He bought the old A. W. Clarke farm near Papillion and since 1932 had lived there in virtual retirement. He was taken to the hospital several days ago.

Mrs. Heth, the former Ella Magee, died, a few years ago. The only surviving relative is a niece, Mrs. Heth Dessau of New York City, who was at the deathbed.

Funeral will be Tuesday at 2:30 p. m. at the Burket chapel, with burial at Forest Lawn. Dr. Frank G. Smith of First Central Congregational church will officiate.
