About Robert Salmon

Obituary:

"Death of Robert Salmon"

One of the most sturdy and genuine men to be found in any community died at Coalville, Summit County, on the 9th inst. We refer to Bishop Robert Salmon, who reached the ripe age of nearly seventy-nine years, having been born in Dumbartonshire, Scotland, April 27th, 1812. He came to Utah in 1866, and from that time made Coalville his home, having been the first ordained Bishop of that town, holding the position until a few months ago, when he was ordained a Patriarch. He has also held the offices of Justice of the Peace and County Clerk. Deceased was an old member of the Church, having become identified with it in March, 1849, and presided over the Paisly Branch almost from that time until his departure for Utah in 1866.

This respected veteran was a man of unblemished reputation, being scrupulously honest. He was truthful and frank almost to the verge of bluntness and was an uncompromising foe of everything in the shape of sham and hypocrisy. At the funeral the people paid great respect to his memory.
