Killed by the Bursting of a Flywheel. This is all that is readable on the small fragment of a once larger stone which has been smashed by vandals and now lays in 3 pieces, hopefully its still on his resting place. The date of his birth and death have been smashed away but when found out I will add it to this bio.

The photo of Richard Brey is courtesy of the Gold Hill Cematery Society who were kind enough to let me copy it for Find a Grave. The two color photos were taken in 1998 show you how the Gold Hill City Cemetery looks like today.
