On the way two of the horses attempted to run back, and the former headed them off, the accident occurring at a kind of wash-out in the road, at the bottom of the grade. The other riders were not in sight, and it is not known just how the mishap occurred, but it is supposed the horse had fallen with him, but whether the rider fell on his face, or did his feet hold in the stirrups, his head dragging on the ground—or just what happened, will never be known. He was unconscious when found and never regained consciousness. He was brought to town and taken to Mrs Smith’s lodging house and Dr Whitney called, who gave little hope of recovery from the start. He threw up blood, indicating that he might have been hurt inside, but it was hemorrhage of the brain that induced death.

Foley, John:  (d. 1896, aged 32 yrs)  “Mr John Foley who has been lying at the point of death for so many weeks, died Thursday morning of this week at 2:30. He rallied slightly from a sinking spell he had the week before, and for a few days seemed to improve, but Wednesday morning he again became unconscious, and gradually grew weaker until he ceased to breathe, early Thursday morning. His wife and family were with him when he passed away. Mr Foley received the injury from which he died in June last, at the Cedar Canyon mines. He had been riding around the camp on horseback, and attempted to ride under the roof of a low ore shed, but failed to stoop quite low enough in passing under, and was caught back of the shoulders by the eaves of the shed, which crushed him down in the saddle, injuring the spine so as to cause paralysis from the back down. He was taken to the Spokane hospital for treatment, but his case was pronounced hopeless, and a few weeks ago at his own solicitation was taken to Davenport under the care of Mr Tully, a trained nurse. A couple of weeks ago Dr Whitney performed an operation and made a careful examination of his back, only to confirm the opinion that he could not get well. Mr Foley, formerly resided in Davenport, where he is well known, and is 32 years old. He leaves a wife and four small children to make their way in the world, the youngest being a baby of five months. The funeral occurred at 3 o’clock Thursday afternoon, the last rites of the Catholic church having been administrated by Father Dwyer several days before.” (LCT: 9-04-1896) “Mrs John Foley and children left several days ago for the mines, accompanied by Mrs T R O’Connor, sister to Mr Foley, who died in town last week.” (LCT: 9-11-1896; see also: 11-05-1897) (Edit: Davenport City shows the burial of John’s daughter in Mountain View, and the Catholic ledger for Davenport does not show either grave, thus it is to be assumed that John and his daughter are buried in Davenport’s Mountain View Cemetery.) “John Foley. Died: Sept 3, 1896, age 36, born Ireland;  married.  Died near Davenport, paralysis.

In 1867 he came to Canada, and the following year to Chicago in which city he was engaged for a time in surveying and in the draying business. He was a resident of Chicago at the time of the great fire of 1871. About a year after the fire he went to Point Lookout, Louisiana, where he raised cotton two years, then went to Navarro County, Texas, where he raised one crop of cotton. He traveled a great deal over the state buying horses, mules and hogs which he took to Louisiana and Mississippi for sale. He also rode the range as a cowboy to some extent. He came to Walla Walla, arriving in July 1880. In the fall of the same year he came to Lincoln County and settled on a homestead near where Larene post office now stands. There were only a few scattering settlers in the county at that time, and Mr Francis experienced a great amount of hardship and inconvenience in getting a start. After living on his original homestead for over twenty years, Mr Francis sold it and bought his present farm of six hundred and forty acres, five hundred acres of which are good grain land and in cultivation. He has a first class orchard, fine stock, with improvements and implements of the most modern types. He has retired form activity himself, having rented his land, and does nothing besides take care of his own business affairs. At the time of his coming to the county he had nothing besides a wagon and a span of mules which he drove all the way from Texas, so that all he has now he has accumulated since 1880, and he is rated as a well-to-do farmer. Politically, Mr Francis is and always has been a believer in the doctrines of the Republican party.” (History of Big Bend, 1904, page 370-1, excerpt)

Her remains were taken to the Davenport Cemetery for burial.”  (LCT: 11-15-1895)  “Larene, Nov 9, 1895. The messenger of Death has pervaded our quiet neighborhood, and the whole community is in the throes of grief. On Friday morning, Nov 8, at 2 o’clock, the angel of Death placed its icy hand upon the brow of one of our fairest and most beloved women. The victim was Miss Bertie May Ferguson, eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs Leroy Ferguson. Bertie was a beautiful and promising young lade, whose life to herself and associates was honest and blameless, and whose disposition was sweet, patient and loving. Under commendable Christian parental guidance, Bertie’s life was consistent with right living, and her disposition was always to do the will of her parents. Love was the ruling motive of her existence, and she seemed never so happy as when doing a kindly act for another. Wrapped in the affections of her family and community, her demise has cast a dark shadow of gloom over the entire horizon of her acquaintance. Being lovable, loving and loved as she was, the sudden checking of her career leaves a vacant place in our midst which cannot easily be filled. She has gone to that immortal realm where the ravage of human disease is unknown—where her cheeks will be (if man is to assume again his mortal image) like roses as they were wont to be on earth. Bertie May Ferguson was born in Lynn County, Oregon, July 30, 1877. Her sickness has covered a period of several years. She was taken to Spokane for medical treatment about one week ago. The advice of the local and neighboring medical profession was that a dangerous surgical operation would be the only hope of recovery. On November 6, the operation was performed from which she never recovered. All the aid that human skill could offer was vainly rendered in her behalf, but she quietly passed to her reward in the bloom of young womanhood, mourned and beloved by all who had felt the spell of her gentle and kindly influence.” (LCT: 11-15-1895)  “Bertie Ferguson, female, died: 11-08-1895; 18 yrs; peritonitis; b.
