ceased received his summons to the oili
er side Oct. 24, 1903, Mr. Mctiurry was
at one time a prominent figure In south
ern Utah ou account of the position he
held of deimty U. S. Marshal. So far
as our personal acquaintance with the
deceiibEd extends, tho following brief
outline of his life and character, copied
from the Times' account, Is borne out;
James McOarry was born at Bohorn
way, Canada, In 184 I, uud was therefore
!) years of age. His parents removed
to Rutland, Vermont, Wliero his boy
hood was spent, and at tho age of 17 ho
enlisted in tho civil war. He serVe.d
four years, took part In inauy battles'
and was wounded in both ankles. He
was taken prisoner and eontined In the
famous rebel prison at Andersonvllle
for eight months, lo was then ex
changed aud at the expiration of hUcn
Ht'ment he ro enlisted, but tho war was
then about ended,
JJJMr. McGurry drove an ox team across
5plalnsjust after tho war und en
gaged In mining In Montana. He then
went to white Pine, Nov., whero he
went into the stage business und min
ing, and came to this section In 1808',
when tho- mlueral discoveries were
made in North Star dibtrlct. After
mining for several years lie went to
ranching a. few miles below Milford,
following this occupation for ten years.
He then removed to Reaver and wus ap
pointed chief deputy United States
marshal for southern I'tah. While
serving In this capacity ho took an ac
tive part In the polygamy prosecutions.
Although ho had instructions to put
every unlawful cohabitation prisoner
In Irons, ho never did so, but always
released them on parole, and always In
toreeded for this class of prisoners at
tho penitentiary, securing many favors
for them at that Institution-. By his
humane courso In thlsrespeotho gained
many frlduds. After his retirement
from this ottlco ho engaged In farming
und mining. He loft a valuable ebtato
consisting of extensive Iron properties
