Salter, Richard B. (11 APR 1854 - 26 MAY 1914)

Richard B. Salter died at his home at Colby, Wis. on Tuesday after a somewhat lingering illness.

Richard B. Salter was a native of Wisconsin. He was born in Washington Co., April 11, 1854. He received a good common school education and taught school for a few terms. In 1875 he commenced the study of law at West Bend, Wis. He afterward entered the law department of the Wisconsin University and graduated from that institution in 1878. The following year, April 9, he came to Colby and commenced the practice of law, building up an excellent practice. He also engaged quite largely in farming and lumbering. He filled the offices of town clerk and chairman of the town of Colby. In 1889 he was elected county judge for Clark County and held the office two terms, eight years. He was married in West Bend, Sept. 11, 1880, to Miss Sarah Edgelhard, and returned to Colby a week later and has made Colby his home ever since.

The funeral will be held in Colby Thursday afternoon at 3 o'clock.
