IDAHO COUNTY FREE
MARCH 2, 1911
Death of a Pioneer
At the ripe old age of seventy-three, Amos Carver , a pioneer of Idaho county, who for the past forty years has lived on a ranch near Lucile, passes away early Monday morning, February 27, 1911, his death being caused by a paralytic stroke.
The deceased, who’s ancestors were among the early colonists of New England, was born in Maine and at the early age of 12 left his home to see that world. He followed the sea and was one of the few Americans who were guests of the King of the Sandwich Island during the occasion of a visit to the port of Honolulu. In 1857 he took up mining in the Eldorado camp of California.
With the news of the rich strikes in Idaho he packed his belongings and arrived in the central Idaho camps in 1862 and mines some of the richest gravel ever handled in Warren district. For fifteen years he followed the occupation and then took up a homestead on Salmon River.
