*Obituary

Thursday, May 17, 1934

The many friends and relatives of Steve Atkisson were shocked last Friday when they received a message that he had been found dead in his home in the mountains of Idaho. Mr. Atkisson was born and reared in Walnut Hill Community near Garfield, and attended the school at Walnut Hill. He was the second son of the late J.L. Atkisson of Garfield. The body arrived at Garfield on Monday and was laid at rest in the Walnut Hill cemetery, Tuesday. A sister, Mrs. Sid Murphy of Springfield came also his brother, A.L. Atkisson and son with their families from New Mexico, Mrs. H.D. Snoderly and Mrs. Jim Dye, other sisters, lived near Garfield. The coroner’s decision was that Mr. Atkisson died about May 9th. It is a great grief to his folks that he died alone in the mountains and that they will never know that cause of his passing. He seemed to love the solitude and each spring when the snow melted, he was able to gather some gold dust from the stream that slipped from the mountain above his home. The “gold” season is now on and that leaves a wonder of how he died, in some minds.
