"John F. Burroughs, age 75 years, pioneer of Pueblo, died at his home, 1007 east Sixth street last night, after a short illness. He came here with his family 28 years ago from Winfield, Kas., and has been in the bricklayer contracting business here ever since. He leaves to mourn his loss a wife and a son Frank, of the family home, and a host of friends. The body was removed to the United Undertaking company's parlors and the funeral will be announced later."
