Page, William Robert
William Robert Page – Steamboat Pilot – March 21, 1906 – W. R. Page of Yampa was another Routt county man in the frightful wreck near Adobe on the Rio Grande. He escaped with only slight injuries. See Adobe Train Wreck, 1906 for in depth coverage of this disaster. Yampa Leader – November 3, 1906 – William Robert Page – William R. Page, one of the best known and most highly respected citizens of Yampa, passed away at the Yampa hospital Thursday morning, death resulting from a complication of diseases. Mr. Page was a passenger on the ill-fated Rio Grande train which was wrecked at Adobe in March, and while not seriously injured himself, his nervous system sustained a frightful shock by reason of the terrible scenes which he witnessed, more than a score of people being burned to death before his eyes. As a result he suffered agonies from neuralgia, which so undermined his health that when he was attacked by typhoid fever two weeks ago his system was unable to withstand the attack. The neuralgia had settled in his teeth, which ulcerated, and the poison reached the brain, being the direct cause of death. William Robert Page was born in Springfield, Illinois, in November, 1850. He was married to Miss Florence Heiner early in life and had four children, all boys, out of this union. After the first wife's death he was again married, to Miss Ada Heiner, and six children, all girls, were the fruit of this marriage. Mr. Page was a man who commanded the respect of all who knew him by the sterling uprightness of his character and genial disposition. His death is mourned by three sons, one of whom lives in Iowa, another in Yampa, and the third in the San Luis valley, Colorado, where also his surviving wife and six daughters are making their home. Only the two sons who are living in Colorado were able to attend the funeral, which was conducted from the Congregational church yesterday under the auspices of the local camp of Woodmen of the World, of which the deceased was a member, as well as the Masonic fraternity
