Thank you for this posting! Amos was a cousin of mine and both sides of my grandparents lived between Seattle and Tacoma at that time. I finally found his story with a little more info, not to mention his photo!
He was 45 years old and left behind his mother Elizabeth Garrett Comer, wife Sarah Eliza Worden Comer, and 4 children: Louis, Alta, Etta and Ruth.
