     Henry Hargreaves Sr. was born near Lancaster, England, on August 7, 1836, and died at his home near Holyoke, Colorado on Monday May 11, 1908, 71 years 9 months and 4 days of age.


     In 1857 he was united in marriage with Miss Ann Croskell of Lancashire, England and   to them were born 4 children, 3 sons and 1 daughter, two of whom died in infancy and one of them, Henry Hargreaves, resides in Phillips County, Colorado. The family made  their home near Lancaster till the death of Mrs. Hargreaves in 1879, when he came to   the United States to make their home. Since coming to the United States, the deceased   resided for a time in Missouri, Nebraska, Colorado, Canada and Ohio returning to  Phillips  County, Colorado a little over a year ago.



 He was one of the early homesteaders of Phillips County and on October 28th 1888 was  married to Mrs. Maud McKibben who survives him.  For many years he attended the services of the Episcopal and Methodist churches and a    few years ago he and his wife united with the Presbyterian church from which they  removed their membership to the Methodist church of Holyoke.


 During his residence in Phillips County he made many friends and was very highly  thought of by all who knew him.  He had been in failing health for some time and had returned to Colorado in the hope of improving his health.


 The funeral was conducted from the Methodist church, Rev. Spence preaching the sermon, on Wednesday May 13, and the body was laid to rest in the Holyoke cemetery. Attorney  W.S. Morlan of McCook, Nebraska was looking after the interests of a client before the   district court at Holyoke Thursday.



 To the friends who kindly assisted us in the last sickness and funeral of our   dear husband and father we extend our heartfelt thanks.


-- Mrs. K.M. Hargreaves, Mr. and Mrs. H.C. Hargreaves and family
