    Johnny was the first child born to John D. and Cynthia Massey while they lived on Fox Creek in Colorado. One of their closest neighbors after the family moved to Manassa, was the Dempsey family. One of the Dempsey boys was a little younger than John, named William Harrison Dempsey. He used to fight Johnny and always won. William later changed his name to 'Jack Dempsey' and went on to become the world's heavyweight champion.

    FRIENDS LAUD JOHN MASSEY AT FUNERAL - CAREER IS OUTLINED
    The body of John D. Massey, one of Dry Fork's leading citizens, was laid to final rest last Sunday at noon in the Vernal cemetery. Funeral services for Mr. Massey were held in the First ward chapel.

    Bishop Bodily of Maeser directed the services, the deceased having been a member of that ward. The building was beautifully decorated with flowers of all varieties and crowded with many sympathetic friends and relatives.

    The Davis quartet rendered selections and Ashley Bartlett sang a solo. The speakers who told of the many good deeds of Mr. Massey were Harmon Sowards, who has been closely associated with the deceased for many years; Wilbur Sowards and President Don B. Colton. The services were dismissed by Nelson Merkley.

    Mr. Massey was born in West Virginia, 1858, and came to Colorado sixty-two years ago to help open up this western country. Later he moved to Heber, where he was active in church affairs. Provo was his next home and then Vernal. While in Vernal and Dry Fork he served two years as road commissioner. The famous Massey grade near the summit of Daniels' canyon was contructed under his supervision. For six years he was superintendent of the Mt. Dell Sunday school. During the latter days of his life, Mr. Massey was engaged in the hide and pelt business.

    It is said that Mr. Massey was strictly a family man and wherever he went his family accompanied him. He has been suggested many times as a model for families of this valley in that respect.

    He is survived by Mrs. John D. Massey, Ira D., Millard, Sewell, Jessie Wall Jensen, George O., Lewis F., John N., Arthur, Viola, Everett, Merle, Hazel, Thelma. He had twenty-eight grandchildren living at his death.

    John married Cynthia Frances Jarrell on 15 Jan 1879 in Joe's Creek, Boone, West Virginia, United States. Cynthia (daughter of John Poindexter Jarrell and Julia Ann Pettry) was born on 17 Apr 1864 in Peach Tree, Raleigh, West Virginia, United States; died on 13 Dec 1957 in Vernal, Uintah, Utah, United States; was buried on 16 Dec 1957 in Vernal, Uintah, Utah, United States.

    Death Called One Of Maeser's Loving Mothers
    MRS. G.F. BRITT CALLED BY DEATH AFTER BRIEF ILLNESS. WAS MOTHER OF 11 CHILDREN.
    (From our Maeser correspondent)
    Maeser is called upon to mourn the loss of a devoted wife and mother and early pioneer, Mrs. G.F. Britt, who died Monday morning April 7, at the family residence after a brief illness. She was taken ill about ten days ago, having been confined to her bed only a week when the end came.

    Susan Maria Merkley-Britt was born October 28, 1863 at Morgan county, Utah, the daughter of Nelson and Sarah Jane Sanders Merkley.

    In her early life she was an active member of the L.D.S. Sunday school. She came to this valley in the fall of 1879 at the age of 16 years. Here with her parents passed through the early pioneer days of the Ashley valley.

    In 1882 she married George Finley Britt and to them were born eleven children. Mr. Britt was a government employee in the early days, consequently they moved around considerable living in many places before settling in Maeser permanently.

    Their home is a bower of beautiful flowers the entire season. It may be truly said Mrs. Britt furnished more flowers for funerals and like occasions than any other resident in the valley. Her entire time being spent with her family and her flowers.

    Funeral services were held at the residence, Tuesday at 3:00 o'clock, with Bishop Sylvanus Collett presiding. A very large crowd of relatives and friends were present to pay their last respects to the departed one. The floral offerings were profuse and beautiful.

    Consoling remarks were made by Bishop Sylvanus Collett and Rev. George A. Downey, telling how Mrs. Britt's life had been filled with love and devotion for her husband and family. A quartet consisting of Mrs. Sylvanus Collett, Mrs. Fred Reynolds, Leslie Thacker and Warren Jones sang, "Rock of Ages" and "Jesus Lover of My Soul." Mima Davis sang a special number, "Face to Face." Robert Bodily opened with prayer and Ed Bodily pronounced the benediction.

    Interment was made in Rock Point cemetery with Bishop Sylvanus Collett dedicating the grave.

    Besides her husband, Mrs. Britt leaves eight children to mourn her loss, George and Keith Britt of Tacoma, Wash., who arrive too late for the funeral services; Mrs. Gladys Massey, Mrs. Marie McLean, Jennie Lynn, Marguerite and Helen. The community wishes to extend their deepest sympathy to the bereaved family.
