This was in the Bonner County Paper. I will check the Kootenai County paper this weekend.


Old time Pioneer and Early Kootenai County Office holder Succumbs

Judge Henry Melder, one of the oldest residents of old Kootenai county who was for several terms judge of probate and school superintendent of Kootenai county when the two offices were combined and who was later connected with the customs service at Port Hill for several years, died yesterday morning at his home near Fish Lake, Kootenai County.

Mr. Melder met with an accident last fall, sustaining a severe fall at his home. Although a man of much vitality notwithstanding his advanced years, he never survived the accident and had failed in health since. He was about 80 years of age. He was an old line republican and in the early days was the acknowledged leader of his party in Kootenai county.

He leaves a widow and family. Mrs. R. S. Bragaw, wife of the former state auditor now of Spokane, is a daughter, Oscar Melder, who is well known is a son.

Mr. Melder retired from the custom service at Port Hill about four years ago and bought a ranch on the shores of Fish lake to which he and his wife retired to spend their declining years.

The funeral will occur at 2 o’clock Sunday afternoon at Rathdrum and burial will be with full Masonic honors.
