William H. Eddy Jr.
Son of the Local Post Master Died at age 10 from an accidental fall from a Train car on the Vriginia & Truckee RR It seems the local boys were in the habit of catching a rind on the train as it passed through Gold Hill on its way to Virgina city, It seems that young William's foot slipped as he hopped on on of the cars and he sipped and was fatally injured in the fall. (No he wasn't run over by the train)
The attached photo of William Jr. was taken in the later 1880s, The Photo of The Eddy Family Marker was taken in Sept. 2001 and shows a 1940-50s Replacement of the wooden originals that were stolen by some low life Dastards!
The other two photos show the Gold Hill NV City Cemetery as it looks today.
