Mrs. H.D. (Philadephia) Cox, “Granny”, a resident of this city since the Cheyenne and Arapaho country was opened to settlement,. She and her husband Hez fed the cavalry troops prior to the Land run and participated in the run themselves. She died in New Mexico at the home of her son, recently, as a result of old age. She was buried in the Cheyenne Cemetery Friday. Bro. Gilliam pastor of the Methodist Church conducted the funeral ceremony.
When the news reached this place of her death her many friends here were saddened. She was omnipresent in the affections of her fellow townsmen, because of her devoted Christian life–one that was sacrificing. She helped make lighter many of the burdens of pioneer life. When doctors were few, she was oft at the bedside of the sick and the dying.
Two children survive her death. They are Mrs. Jennie Berry and Mr. Don Cox. they were present at her burial.
The Star extends consolation to the bereaved ones.
