Engelhard, Samuel L. (May 1864 - July 1904)

Mrs. R. B. Salter and Mrs. J. F. Sims received a dispatch from Chicago, Illinois, Saturday afternoon, announcing the death of their brother, Mr. Sam Engelhard. No word of his sickness had been received previous and the announcement of his death was a severe shock to the sisters. Sam was about 41 years of age and a general favorite with all who knew him. He visited Colby a few years ago and had many friends here who will deeply sympathize with the ladies in their bereavement.
