The Rigby Star of Rigby, Jefferson County, Idaho had the following obituary on page one, Thursday, July 12, 1917.
"W.W. Dunham, a prominent resident of Menan, died late Friday evening at his home of heart failure.
The deceased had been a resident of Menan for a number of years and has been one of the builders of that city. He is survived by his wife and several children. Mr. Dunham was fifty years old at the time of his death.
Funeral services were held Monday afternoon from the Menan meeting house, internment taking place in the Little Butte Cemetary near Annis."
I also learned that my g-father was born in Michigan, probably Hartford, Van Buren Co., although his family soon moved to Benton Harbor, Berrien Co., Michigan. His wife was actually named Margaret Almeda Stevenson and she was born in Fairfield Co., Ohio in Jan. 1860. She died at the home of a son, Claude Dunham in Pocatello, Idaho on Feb. 6, 1939. She is buried at the Mt. View Pocatello, Idaho Cemetary in Bannock Co. I have additional information about their families.
