Fred Morehouse Dies at Ranch Sat.

Fred Morehouse, about 65 years of age, died at his homestead on the holdings of the Kitchen Land and Cattle Co., 50 miles northwest of Lusk Saturday morning Apr. 4.

He had been in poor health for some time but refused to let any of the people at the ranch call a doctor or bring him in to a hospital.

Coroner Earl Peet was called when the man died but no inquest was conducted as there were several people to testify that he died of natural causes.

The remains were brought to the Peet Chapel where every effort is being made to contact relatives. Also a check is being made of his papers of World War I.

Morehouse admitted that he had relatives but refused to reveal their identity other than to say that some of them lived in Texas.

According to his draft papers he was born in Knox County, Nebr. He came to Wyoming about 1931 and has resided here since that time, living on his homestead.

Funeral services will be held at 2:00 o'clock, Thursday afternoon at the Peet Chapel unless word should be received from relatives wanting a change of time.

Mr. Peet has been notified that the deceased had an honorable discharge from the army and a military funeral will be held with Rev. Frank Schweising officiating.
