Mrs. John Evans, a few moments before apparently in her usual health, dropped dead in the huckleberry fields at the second crossing of Wolf Creek Friday.
Mr. and Mrs. Evans had become separated from the rest of the party and Mr. Evans walked a short distance away, calling and attempting to locate himself. Upon turning he saw his wife drop and found her dead when he reached her. Death was apparently due to heart failure.
R. E. Haines and family were camped at First Crossing and went and brought Mr. Evans and the family to Mr. Hart’s place near Warm Springs, Joe Maharry bringing the remains.
