P.B. Dickinson, prominent rancher of near this city, was called by death at the local hospital at 3:30 Wednesday morning, December 8, 1920. He had been seriously ill for several weeks with ulcers of the stomach and was taken to the hospital on November 13. On the 16th he was operated on and everything possible done to assure his recovery but to no avail.
Plimpton Byron Dickinson was born July 16, 1861, at Lowell, Indiana. On the 1_th [16th or 18th; the article is illegible here] of October, 1893, he was married to Minnie Agnes Ebert. To them were born two sons, Derwood Byron, and George Dewey.
Late in the year 1910, they moved to Gooding and he had resided here since, being one of the pioneer farmers of this section. He went through the hardships incidental to clearing the raw sagebrush land here and had had his share and more of misfortune. His wife died in 1914 at the age of 42 and on January 20, 1918, his son, Derwood, gave up his life in the World war in France in the service of this country. Both were hard blows to Mr. Dickinson. The son, Dewey, is the only one of the immediate family surviving. Mr. Dickinson leaves a grandson, and three brothers and one sister. Two of the latter live at Lowell, Indiana, and one in Florida. Three sisters preceded him in death.
Mr. Dickinson was a man whom everyone liked, a man of honesty and integrity, a good neighbor and friend and one who did his part to develope the soil resources of this country. In addition to relatives, there will be real sorrow over his passing among a large circle of friends.
The funeral services were held Friday afternoon and was attended by a large number of friends of the deceased. Services were conducted by Rev. Wm. J. Douglas in the Methodist church at 2 o'clock. A mixed quartette rendered the music appropriate to the occasion and Rev. Douglas spoke briefly in eulogy of Mr. Dickinson. Those acting as pall-bearers were: A.J. Lucket, H.H. Robinson, A.M. Cramblett, F.H. Judevine, J.E. Arkoosh, and Rufus Longstreth. Burial was in Gooding cemetery by the side of his wife, who preceded him in death in 1914.--Gooding, (Idaho) Leader.
