Arquette, Al (23 MAR 1887 - 24 MAY 1912)

The body of Al Arquette, who was killed by falling dirt in a mine on Friday, May 24, 1912, at Wallace, Idaho, arrived last Sunday.

The deceased, a son of Mr. and Mrs. John Arquette of this village (Loyal, Clark County, Wis.), was twenty-five years of age and left here seven years ago for the west. He was known to many here and respected.

He was born March 23, 1887, in the town of Wood in Wood County, where he resided for fifteen years; then with his parents he moved to this town, where he stayed until at the age of eighteen he went to Dakota and from there went to Spokane, Wash., where he worked for five years. From there he went to Wallace, Idaho to work for the Federal Mining and Smelting Co. as timber man. He, with four others, were putting in timbers in a secluded part of the mine. He and one of the others were surprised by and buried beneath a sudden fall of ore and earth. Before his co-workers could reach him he was dead.

He leaves to mourn his loss a father, mother, four brothers and three sisters.

The funeral services were held at the M. E. Church on Sunday afternoon and the remains buried in the M. E. Cemetery.
