GRANT MILLS, 75, DIES SUNDAY AT TEN SLEEP

   Oliver Grant Mills, 75, old time roundup cook, cowhand, and freighter, died early Sunday morning at his home at Ten Sleep.

   At 7:15 Saturday, friends found him unconscious in his log cabin where he had lived alone since the death of his brother, Dow, a few years ago.  He was given medical attention, but failed to regain consciousness, although he lived until 6:50 a.m. Sunday.  He had suffered from Brights Disease and complications for some time.

   Mills was born August 6, 1863 in Maysville, Missouri.  He first came to Wyoming in 1885, but returned to Missouri in 1902.  The same year he was married, but was divorced 2 years later and returned to Wyoming.

   Again in 1918, he returned to Missouri, but only for 3 years.  Since 1921, he had lived in Ten Sleep where he owned a 160 acre ranch.

   Surviving him are a brother, Edward Mills of Big Trails and a daughter, Mrs. Willie Thompson of Fairport, Missouri.  Another brother, Tom, died last fall.

   Rev. Dwight M. Kitch will officiate at the services and the Masonic Lodge will be in charge of services at the Cemetery.
