Another Iowa Boy Dead.

The following extract is taken from the Berthoud (Col.) Bulletin, the subject of the sketch, was a brother of the late John Haworth, and will be remembered by many of our readers. His death occurred Feb. 28th.

William Quinton Haworth was born in Pennsylvania on the 27th day of October, 1842. He was the second of seven children born to Mr. and Mrs. William Haworth, who in 1854 joined the westward movement and came as far as Iowa. In the early stages of the Civil war Mr. Haworth enlisted in Company K of the 1st Iowa Cavalry and served until the close of the war, giving three and a half years of the best of his life to his county's service.

In 1865 he returned to his native state where in 1873 he was married to Miss Minnie Page of Portland, N.Y. Two children, a son and a daughter, were born to them. The latter, Mrs. Grace Ludwing of Chicago, survives him. His son and his wife died some years ago. In 1879 he came west again and spent the winter of that year with his brother Frank in Kansas and in the following year became a resident of Colorado. He was one of the pioneers in the Leadville district and for twenty years was actively engaged in mining.

During the past nine years he had made his home in Denver a part of the time and his second wife was Mrs. Rachel Mitchell of Denver. She survives him, but for the past two and a half years has been in the state hospital for the insane, on account of mental affliction.

Besides his wife and daughter he is survived by two brothers, Frank and Eli, of Berthoud and by one sister, Mrs. Mary Briggs, of Kane, Pa.
