Bunker, Solon B. (Unknown - June 23, 1914)
Death of S.B. Bunker
Bill Barlows Budget - June 25, 1914A telegram received Tuesday from Big Piney, Wyo., stated that Solon B. Bunker, until a few months ago a resident of Douglas, had died at that place of heart failure. With Mrs. Bunker they removed to Seattle, Wash., several months ago, where they resided on a fruit and chicken ranch owned by the former's sister, but shortly after their arrival our former townsman was taken ill with pneumonia. His son Fred being employed by a cow outfit at Big Piney the deceased left Seattle to visit him, after his recovery from his severe illness. He had been at Piney but two days when stricken.
The remains will be brought here for interment, but as Big Piney is 150 miles from Kemmerer, the nearest railroad station, the exact day of funeral cannot be stated. The remains are to be started today to the railroad and the trip requiring two days, it will probably be Sunday or Monday before reaching here.
The deceased had been a resident of town and vicinity for several years and with his estimable wife was most highly regarded. A son Frank Bunker resides here and the funeral will likely be held from the residence.
