  • Notice from The Douglas Budget, September 1, 1938


Prominent Rancher of LaBonte Country Fifty Years

Harry Foxton, well known and well loved rancher and stockman of the LaBonte section south of Douglas for the past fifty years, died last Friday afternoon at the Smith hospital in Douglas.  He had been in ill health for several months and only recently was admitted to the hospital.

Henry Hardman Foxton was born at Fettercairn, Kincardinshire, Scotland, April 20, 1869.  He crossed to America in 1888 and joined his brothers, Fred and George, who had made the trip from Scotland several years prior.  About a year later another brother, John and a sister, Clara, arrived in Wyoming.

Henry (or Harry as he was better known to his friends) and John established a ranch on Mill creek, south of Douglas and were successful in both the cattle and sheep business. John passed away in 1937. Death took another brother, Fred, two years later. The third brother, George, lives on a ranch near Glendo.  The sister, Clara, had been living with her brother, Harry on the Mill creek ranch up to the time illness of her brother compelled them to move to Douglas.

Funeral services were held at Christ Episcopal church with the Rev. H.T. Shay of Torrington officiating in the absence of the Douglas Rector, Rev.W.Hewton Ward.  A quartet composed of Mesdames C.E. Clark and John Slonaker and Messrs. S.E. Layton and W.D. Trethewey sang.  Pallbearers were Charles Reid, T.C. Rowley, William Delahoyd,Archie Hamner, William Morton and George Ullman. Interment was in the Douglas Park cemetery.
