Jeremiah W. Farnham
Captain Jeremiah (Jerry) W. Farnham, is a well-known resident of Seattle, Washington, with a great interest in all public affairs. He had watched Seattle grow from the time it was a very small town, and had always predicted a great future for the city.
In January 1905, at age 76, he was stricken with heart disease, and had been confined to his home since. When he died, Farnham was unmarried, and had a brother and two sisters, including Nancy S. Farnham, who married Captain George W. Boyd.
