Three children were born to them, a daughter, Lillian, who died in infancy, and two sons, Harry B. and Wesley J., both of whom are well known and respected citizens of Lusk.

Mr. and Mrs. Hargraves came to Wyoming about twenty years ago, where Mr. Hargraves organized and managed the Badger Sheep and Cattle Co's ranch with great financial success until his death ten years ago, when the aid and councel of their mother, Harry and Wesley continued the business most successfully, when an opportunity presented itself and they sold out the ranch, since which time they have resided in Lusk. A few years ago Mrs. Hargraves built a fine residence in town and began to pass her declining years in ease and comfort, her home being the rendezvous of her sons and many friends. She died very suddenly last Thursday morning, October 3rd, 1912, from heart failure, aged 67 years, 2 months and 18 days.
