About Walter LeRoy Osborn

Walter LeRoy Osborne was the son of John Wesley Osborn and Mary Amelia Rollins. He died from an injury when he fell off a horse. He was 17 years and 28 days old. HIS DEATH WAS SUDDEN: Walter Leroy Osborn Passes Away from Internal Injuries. Sudden and unexpected was the death of Walter Leroy Osborn, which occurred in this city at 6:45 yesterday morning. Mr. Osborn resided at Frisco, Utah, and last Thursday while riding a horse, the animal fell on him breaking his leg. The young man was brought to this city and the broken limb set by Dr. Richards. He appeared to be getting along nicely but towards Sunday it became apparent that he had been injured internally and notwithstanding the work of physicians his spirit took its flight at the time indicated, death occurring at the residence of his brother, 665 Fifth East Street. Mr. Osborn was 17 years of age and lived with his widowed mother at Frisco. He is a brother-in-law of Mr. M. C. Morris, of the Horn Silver Mining company, and has other relatives and friends in this city to whom the news of his death will come as a severe shock. The funeral will take place from the Second ward meeting house tomorrow (Tuesday) at 2 p. m. Friends are invited.
