Henry Alvin Mainquist, whose sudden death was mentioned in last week's issue, was buried in Grant Township, Montgomery County, December 7, 1887, where he grew to manhood. He was the eldest child of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Mainquist, and is survived by his widow, mother, four brothers and two sisters. Last spring he went west to engage in horse buying, locating first at Dillon, Montana, and about one month ago changed to Salt Lake City, where a cousin, and his brother Frank, are staying.
He had been in poor health for some time resulting from a severe attack of rheumatism for which morphine was given for relief. He had used it occasionally, but accidently took two large a quantity and passed away suddenly Sunday June 16. All efforts to save him were to no avail, but he regained consciousness at the last and told the ones who were with him that taking too much of the drug was not intentional and not his habit of using it.
The remains were accompanied home by C.A. Ahlstand a cousin of Mrs. Mainquist. A family service, conducted by Rev. Roslin, were held at the home of his Mother, Mrs. Augusta Mainquist, Saturday afternoon and was largely attended. Burial was made in the Nyman Cemetery. The family have the sympathy of all in their bereavement.
