Henry L. Stoddard Dies After Short Illness

(From Wednesday's Daily)

Henry L. Stoddard, aged abut 65 years, and a native of New York, died
yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock, at Huron, after an illness of only a
few days, the fatal malady being pneumonia. His remains were brought
to this city last evening, to be prepared for interment. He leaves no
immediate relatives in this county but a number in New York and
Pennsylvania, who were notified of his death, which was entirely
unexpected and a shock to his many friends here.

Deceased came to this Territory over thirty years ago, since when he
followed the occupation of miner and prospector, up to the time when
attached by the fatal malady. As a proof of success he leaves valuable
mining interests in the Big Bug and other districts, and it was only
the day before his death that the representative of an eastern
syndicate bonded the Jim Crow and Columbus mines in the town of McCabe
for a large amount, he being a large owner in both properties, which
he had held in his possession for many years, only to die before
enjoying the fruits of his labor and good judgment.

He was a man of genial personality, of a kind and generous nature,
brave and charitable, and endowed with the characteristics of manhood
of the pioneers who blazed the pathway for a modern civilization in
this Territory and assisted in subduing the wily Apache.

Funeral arrangements will be announced later.

Transcriber's note: Mr. Stoddard is buried in an unmarked grave at the
