Judy, His death certificate says he is buried at Mt. Hope Cemetery but so far no one has found any evidence of that. He was a member of the Woodsmen of the World organization. The year before he died he wrote home to his brother from the Riverton Hospital (I believe Carbon Co.)and said he was paralyzed. That is how he made it to the county home in Fremont Co. where he died. Since there is no evidence of burial at Mt. Hope I though he could be buried in the W.O.W. section of the Ft. Steele Cemetery. I found him in one census record as living at Ft. Steele. I may never find him. Just thought I would give it a try again. Thanks so much for your effort.
