ment as a teamster, driving ox teams from
the Missouri river to Denver and the moun

log house on It, In which he resided to the
time of hla death, the. last of the original
log houses In the County to be used as a

stirring fights with the Indians, but always
managed to get his wagona through some
way. A widow, one eon, John Hager of
Jamestown, and one daughter, Mra. Mills
of Chadron, survive him.
