Obituaries of Spring Glen Residents

The following obituaries where part of the collection of Frances Cunningham and where given to the Carbon County UTGenWeb webpage.

James Dicken Fullmer
Carbon County News, 13 Feb 1909

Beside the Fulmer Bier

Funeral services of a highly impressive character were held at the Spring Glen schoolhouse over the remains of the late J.D. Fulmer, whose sudden death last Saturday morning sent a shock of sorrow throughout the state. Mr. Fulmer was fifty nine years of age and had spent his life in Utah, having been born in the Old Fort, at Salt Lake City in the year following the arrival of the "hand Cart" pioneers. He was a man of sterling qualities, held in the highest affection, by those who knew him well and respected by all with whom he came into contact. It is safe to say that no man in all the west had more genuine friends than had J.D. Fulmer.

As an indication of the great sorrow caused by the taking off of this good and upright man, the Spring Glen schoolhouse, which was especially tendered by the trustees for the occasion, was crowded to the doors, many who had come to pay their last respects to his memory being unable to gain admittance.

The services were directed by Bishop John T. Rolly and were under the nuspices of the ward bishopric. They were of an unusually touching character, every loving tribute to the memory of the departed drawing an echo of affection from the sorrowing hearts of the assembled throng.

The principal speakers were John H. Pace, H.G. Mathis, R. B. Morrison and Chauncey Cook the last named a half brother of the deceased. All these speakers paid high tribute to the honesty, integrity and splendid personal qualities of the man over whose bier a whole community stood bent with sorrow. Mr. Morrison's remarks were especially impressive. He dealt with the stern honesty and unimpeachable character of his dead friend, holding up his life as an example to be admired and emulated by all. Mr. Morrison was full of his subject and his remarks met with sympathetic response from all his hearers. After the services he said to a friend: "When a man like that dies, when the grave opens to receive him and he sinks into its bosom, there can be no better epitaph than the words of Pope 'An Honest Man is the Noblest Work of God'".

Mr. Fulmer leaves a wife and eight children. Among the latter is a married daughter living in Canada who had been advised of the death of her father and was expected to be present at the funeral. She was, however, unable to make the trip. The other children are J.D, Van, Lorenzo, Pearl and a little one of three years. The other married ones are Mrs. Olive Hanselman and Mrs. Chloe Atherton.

One of State's First Born Dead

Eastern Utah Advocate, 11 Feb 1909

One among the first born of Utah's sturdy manhood after the pioneers reached Utah Valley and a citizen of Carbon county for about twenty years died at Spring Glen last Friday in the person of J.D. Fullmer, after a brief illness. He is survivied by a wife and several children. Funeral services were held from the Spring Glen meeting house yesterday afternoon and the remains laid to rest in the local cemetery there.

The speakers at the funeral were John H. Pace, Henry G. Mathis, Bishop John T. Rowley of Spring Glen and one of his counsellors, R. B. Morrison of Helper. C.H. Cook, formerly of Spring Glen and a half-brother of the deceased, also made a brief address. The funeral was one among the largest in Spring Glen ward, the attendance and genuine sorrow expressed by friends and neighbors showing the very high regard in which deceased was held by those who had known him most intimately these many years.

The deceased was born in the "old fort" at Salt Lake City about a year after the pioneers came to the state by handcart, and was about 48 years of age.
