Rock Springs Miner, Jan 26, 1907
Death of David Brookman
David Brookman, one of the old and respected citizens of this place, passed away Tuesday morning at the hospital, where he had been confined for about a week.
Mr. Brookman was born in Wales about eighty-three years ago. He came to America previous to the civil war and served with a Pennsylvania regiment during that conflict, being one of the few veterans residing in this city.
In 1869 he came to Rock Springs and began work in the mines. He is remembered as one of the best inside track layers, who ever worked in the mines in this region. Later he became a mine boss and held various important positions with the Union Pacific Co. Three years ago last September his wife, who was the mother of the Harvey children, was laid to rest.
The funeral services were held at the Congregational church on Wednesday afternoon, conducted by Rev. Lewis, the pallbearers being among the oldest residents of the town.
