Near San Luis Obispo, California, June 28th,
Col. Wm. H. Garvin, aged 38 years

Deceased came to Prescott from Denver, Colorado, in the Spring of '65,
and resided here until about a year ago, when he removed to San
Francisco for the purpose of getting skilled medical treatment for a
painful disease with which he was afflicted. While in San Francisco, he
underwent several trying surgical operations, and bore the torture of
the surgeon's knife with Christian fortitude. But somehow or other,
these operations and accompanying treatment failed to restore his health
and, by the advice of friends, he removed to San Luis Obispo, in the
hope of regaining heath, but all to no purpose. His days were numbered
and his Creator called him home. Col. Garvin held the position of
Adjutant-General of this Territory, was a member in good standing of
Aztlan Lodge, F. & A.M. of Prescott, and was highly respected by all who
knew him. His untimely death is regretted by a numerous circle of
friends in this, his adopted home. May the showers from heaven fall
gently upon his grave, and may God in his mercy comfort and console his
family and relatives.
