California Was Former Converse County Resident Many Years; Burial Here Saturday
Douglas Budget - April 4, 1946Word was received in Douglas late last week of the death of Percy Brockway last Thursday at the St. Joseph Hospital in Eureka, Calif. He will be remembered as a former rancher in this county.
Funeral services were held at Miranda, Calif., where he had resided for the past year and a half. The remains are being shipped to Douglas for burial in the family plot in Park cemetery. According to a wire received yesterday they will arrive early Saturday morning accompanied by the widow, Eula E. Brockway.
There will be brief services at the grave here at 10:00 o'clock that morning.
The Brockway ranch was on Bedtick southwest of Douglas and the family lived there many years, the children, three sons and two daughters, attending the Douglas schools. Mr. Brockway sold the ranch when the Alcova project above Casper was under construction and the family moved to that location. One of the sons was killed while working on the project. Upon its completion Mr. Brockway bought a small place along the Alcova road and lived there until a year and half ago when he and Mrs. Brockway moved to California to make their home.
