Thank you so much for posting the web-site and links to get to images of Utah death certificates. I was able to find the death certificate of someone I was researching, who died in 1927. I'd sure like to find more on this person, who was Eugene Earhat Monroe, born in Atchison, KS, moved to Park City, Summit Co., Utah in 1887 and died their in 1927. If you have any more clues as to where to find more on him please post or send to me at I have no hope at getting to Utah to do research, I live in PA.

Park Record, Park City, Summit Co., Utah
April 8, 1927

Eugene Monroe, one of the old-time gamblers of the west, who for some years has been working at different “soft drink” parlors of our city was taken to the Minors Hospital Tuesday and his condition is reported as quite serious. The history of his career would make interesting reading.

Park Record, Park City, Summit Co., Utah
April 15, 1927

Eugene Earhart Monroe was born in Atchison, Kansas, October 12, 1868, and died at Miners Hospital, Park City, Saturday, April 9, 1927. "Gene" Monroe, as he was best known, came west about 1887. Much of his time has been spent in Park city, where he was well known for many years. Of late years he has been in very poor health and unable to do more than odd jobs to eke out a living.

The past month he failed very rapidly until it became necessary to remove him to the Miners Hospital April 6th. He lapsed into unconsciousness the following day from which he did not recover, dying at 6:30 a.m. Saturday, April 9th.

Funeral services were held Monday, April 11, 1927 at 2:00 p.m. U. S. Villars, Minister, conducting the services using the text "As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you: and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem". Music was furnished by Mrs. Fletcher, Mrs. S. J. Wilson and John Baxter.

The pall-bearers were Messers Harry Malone, Charles Graham, Sid Roach, Jim Gilbert, Ira Ely and Pete McKettrick.

Interment in charge of Mortician G. M. Archer, was made in the City cemetery.
