Gilbert H. Gretrg wasbornatWHIard.
In Lincoln county, Nebraska, on August
25th, 1887. Ho lived with his parents In
tho north Dart of this county until May,
1907, when he went to Helper, Utah, as
assistant secretary of the Y. M. C. A.
under Mr. Julius Sheppard, formerly of
our city. Shortly after going to Helper,
he accepted a position as fireman on the
Denver & Rio Grands railway, and by
reason of faithfulness to his work, he
was promoted to the responsible posi
tion of engineer, in Dec, 1911.
About a year ago he was married to
Miss Viana Nora NeBbitt, of Grand
Junetlon, Colo., and tho young couple
made their residence at that place. He
was killed by accident at Wellington,
Utah, on tho night of April 26th, 1913.
His wife, father, mother and nine
brothers and sisters remain to mourn
his sudden and seeming untimely de
parture. Tho following letter was re
ceived by the family from ISec. Shep
pard, of Helper, Utah:
Helper. Utah, April 27, 1913.
Mr. Aaron S. Gregg,
Dear Mr. Gregg: You do not know
how badly I felt when I was told this
morning of the deathof brother Gilbert
Am told that he was leaning out of the
cab window boking at the working of
the injector when they passod thro the
iron bridge. I guess he never knew a
thing after being struck for he died in
a few minutes. I feel very sorry for
tho family. It will bo a hard blow for
I, too, will miss him forho came in to
the Y. M. C. A. every trip ns it is the
only home ho had away from home. He
always slept and spent his loafing Jtlmc
in tho building, usually with a nook on
"air" In his hands, for he was a good
I thot much of him becauso he had a
mind of his own and eolild not be in
fluenced to drink, gamble and waste
his money With tho bunch, some of
which did not liko him because he
would not stand for such foolishness.
He always worked hard, snved his
money, and minded his own business
and was always a gontlemon.
It hurts me to see a young man cut
down like that but God knows what
is best, und I pray that He may sus
tain all of you in this awful hour.
With kindost regards, am yourfriend.
Mr. Gregg's death was the 11th,
caused by tho narrow gauge bridges on
the Denver and Rio Grande botween
Grand Junction and Helper in the last
15 years. He was injured at 8:00 p. m.
Saturday, the 26th, and died nt 11:16 p.
m. tho same day, whilo he was being
rushed to Grand J unction for treatment.
Besides the wife of the deceased, her
