Rock Springs Miner no. 50 December 3, 1896
Death at the Hospital.

A sheep herder, an old man, named Ira H. Corless, died at the hospital at the end of last week and was buried on Monday by the veterans of John A. Campbell post G. A. R. He had been working for Fred Bereford and Mr. Kelsey, when by some carelessness on his part, he allowed one of his feet to get frozen, amputation becoming necessary. The operation was successfully performed, but the shock was too much for him. At first it was thought he was a brother of Major Corless of the 8th U. S. Infantry, but inquiry developed that such was not the case. The deceased was an old soldier, honorably discharged (crease in paper) gave him a respectable burial.
