Thomas Hepworth's Accident
As noted in the NEWS the death of
Thomas Hepworth was due to his hav-
ing fallen into the shaft of the elevator
in the rear of the Lambert Paper Com-
pany's office It is but fair to the
company, however, to say that the
responsibility does not rest upon them.
They are not the only users of the elevator,
and other parties had opened it
for use at the time the accident happened.

HEPWORTH ------In Salt Lake, June 19, 1895,
Thomas Hepworth, a native
of Yorkshire, England, aged 68 years,
Mr. Hepworth came to Salt Lake
in 1852, and lived here or in this immediate
locality ever since. He has always
been an active, strong man until the accident
came which took his life. He has
been a true citizen, an earnest, honest
man, and his death is deplored by hundreds
of friends who have know him
and who appreciated his honest life.
The funeral will be from the family
residence 725 West First North street,
on Sunday at 3 p.m.. Friends are invited.
GGGrandfather Thomas was buried in the Salt Lake City Cemetery. Thomas and Mary were married for forty seven years. I can just imagine the sadness of this untimely death. Mary Hepworth does file a lawsuit against the Lambert Paper Company which I will write about in the next post.
