Free Press, October 4, 1917


Two pioneers of Idaho county died at the county home during the last week.  James Griswold, aged 79, for many years a freighter, died Saturday morning.  Barney Caffery, the other pioneer, passed away Monday morning.  He was 85 years old and was once engaged in mining.

The bodies of the two pioneers were buried Tuesday from the Hancock undertaking parlors with services conducted at the graves in Prairie View cemetery by the Rev. Mr. Wood, pastor of the Federated church.

Mr. Griswold, who was born in Ohio, was one of the really old-time residents of Idaho county, and, until a few years ago, when his strength gave way, he was actively engaged in freighting into the interior country.  He was a man of quiet disposition.  Until two weeks previous to his death he resided with Virgil Remington.

Mr. Caffrey, who left no known relatives, had been at the county home for six weeks.  He followed mining in the Salmon River country.
