Rock Springs Rocket no. 10, Jan 25, 1918
Death of Jos. Harvey
Joseph Harvey was killed at Lion on Friday, and Joseph Miller was severely injured but will recover, when a fall of rock caught both men.
Deceased was born in County Down Ireland, April 11, 1876. When about seventeen years of age he came to this country, direct to Rock Springs, where he resided for about four years. Leaving here for Lander he engaged in mining and later in farming and stock-raising, going from there to a farm in Colorado and after several years again returning to Rock Springs in December 1915.
On April 11, 1900, he was married to Miss Jennie Young of this city. Five children were born of this union, Jennie, Pearl, Audrey, Robert, Amy and Hazel, all of whom survive the loss of a beloved husband and father. Two brothers, Moses E. and Benjamin Harvey, of this city, and two sisters, Mrs. Ferd Wise of Hudson, Wyo., and Mrs. Ben MacDonald of Tacoma, Wash,., also survive, and attended the services.
Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the home of George L. Young, and at the Congregational church at 2:30, Rev. Jenkins officiating.
The bereaved relatives have the sympathy of a host of friends.
