1905
Inyo Register, February 2, 1905
"ANOTHER PIONEER GONE."

Alvah K. Briggs died at the residence of T.F.A. Connelly Thursday night of last week, at the age of 58 years.

Few residents of the county were better known than "Al" Briggs. Coming here first in 1869 he was in business in Cerro Gordo, Independence, Darwin, and elsewhere for a number of years following. Departing for new fields, he made temporary abiding places in many camps, in California, Utah and Nevada, finally returning to Bishop toward the close of the '70's. He went into the merchandise business, soon afterward erecting the store building now occupied by Marks & Cohn. About 1883 he sold out, and tried farming for a while.

From here he went to Central America, remaining there about 18 months. Again his earlier location attracted him, and he returned to finish his life here. In latter years he has been engaged in various mining enterprises, which however failed to reward him as his efforts deserved. Three months ago he was brought in from Goldfield, suffering from a liver complaint, which terminated fatally.

Mr. Briggs had no relatives on this coast. A brother, H.C. Briggs, ex-Superior Judge of North Dakota, resides in Michigan; a nephew, Glenn F. Briggs, is in New York, and there are several other more distant relatives in Michigan. Though having no kindred at hand, many friends ministered to his every need or want during his long illness. The funeral occurred from the Academy chapel Saturday afternoon, and was largely attended.
