From the IdahoCounty Free Press, June 14, 1934. William was a son of John and Bridget: WILLIAM H. HOGAN DROPS DEAD
William H. Hogan, 70, mining engineer and geologist of
the Orogrande district, dropped dead at his apartment in the Flanigan block
Sunday afternoon, death being caused by heart disease. His daughter, Mrs. Carl
Vermillion, was with him when he died.
Mr. Hogan had been prominent in mining development in the
and Orogrande districts for over forty years. He was an extremely capable
metallurgist as well as engineer and geologist. The original Orogrande 20-stamp
mill was designed and constructed by him, and he was once credited with having
established a record in
for low cost of mining and milling of ore. The great mineralized sheer zone at
Orogrande was discovered by him in the early '90s. The present Orogrande-Frisco
Company, which took over Hogan's old mine, has adapted his method of ore
dressing after exhaustive tests, and the opening of the new mill at Orogrande
was anticipated by Mr. Hogan with great interest. It is regrettable that he was
not permitted to see this event.
He leaves to mourn his passing, his widow, three daughters, Miss Kathleen and
Mrs. Hugh Worthington, who are in Seattle, and Mrs. Carl Vermillion of
Orogrande; and three sons, Arthur, Jack and Harold, also of Orogrande.
Funeral services were held at Sts. Peter and Paul church in Grangeville, at
Tuesday morning, with the Rev. Father J. McBride officiating. Pallbearers were
Frank McGrane, James McHugh, J. D. Flanigan, Gus Hoene, Joseph Neis and Al
Wagner. Interment was in
