Robert Inghram

Lewiston Teller
Lewiston, Idaho, April 30, 1891

Robert Inghram died at his home near this city on Sunday last after a brief illness, and was buried here Monday afternoon, under the auspices of the Knights of Pythias lodge, of this city. He was a man of such robust health and physical strength that his sudden decease will be a painful surprise to many. An attack of la grippe developed into a case of acute pneumonia whose ravages could not be stopped. In the death of Mr. Inghram the community loses one of its most enterprising and valued citizens. He was a man of stirling worth, honest to the heart's core, candid, frank and sympathetic. He was a most excellent friend; a kind neighbor. All were welcome at his home; all were treated with courtesy and kindliness. It is deeply regretted that a life so full of the milk of human kindness, so useful and valued, should be cut off now. Many friends attested their sorrow and sympathy with the bereaved family by their attendance at the funeral. The public schools of this city adjourned for the afternoon in respect to his memory, he having been a member of the board of education. The following resolutions of condolence and respect were passed by the lodge of Knights of Pythias of this city, and by the members of the School Board...

[I didn't type up the lodge resolutions, which mentioned a widow and children, but their names were not given]
