Saturday morning at 7 o'clock occurred the death at Hyattville of Henry Crosby, an old time cowman. Mr. Crosby has been making his home with J. D. Hopkins at Big Trails, and was brought to Mr. Donahue's hotel at Hyattville about two weeks ago that he might be near a physician. For days before his death he was unconscious much of the time, and seemed to suffer but little. The immediate cause of his death was Bright's disease.

   Harry Crosby came to Wyoming in1879and to Big Horn Basin in 1889. He was well and favorably known by all the old settlers in this part of the Basin.

   The only relative of the deceased present during his last illness was brother, Warren Crosby of Hazleton, Wyo. No other relatives were near enough to be present at the funeral, but a host of friends from far and near followed the remains to their last resting place.

   Interment was made at Tensleep from the M. E. church. The Episcopal burial service was used, the Rev. E. C, Smith officiating.

   Harry Crosby was born at Catonsville, Baltimore county, Md., March 29, 1859, and died Jan. 6,

1906. He leaves behind an aged father and mother at Catonsville, Md., three sisters and four brothers to mourn his death. The only relative in this state is the brother who was present at the time of his death.
