Emma's brother Otho B. Fawcett is buried in Brush
Otho B. Fawcett, a dealer in hardware, harness and implements at Brush, was born in Morgan county, Ohio, on the 3d of April, 1868, and is a son of Asa and Lucy (Morris) Fawcett, who are also natives of Morgan county, Ohio. The father was a carpenter by trade and eventually took up contracting and building. In 1861, fired by the spirit of patriotism, he enlisted in response to the country's call for troops to aid in the preservation of the Union and became a member of Company I. Sixty-third Ohio Infantry, with which he continued throughout the period of the Civil war. When hostilities had ceased he returned home and resumed the work of contracting, in which he engaged for many years, being prominently connected with building operations in his section of the state. He is now living retired and makes his home at Glouster, Ohio, he and his wife being among the valued and respected residents of that place.

Otho B. Fawcett was reared and educated at Chesterhill, Ohio, and then went to work as a clerk, being employed in that manner in various general merchandise stores for several years. Eventually he removed to North Dakota and had charge of a department store for nine years, displaying excellent business ability in its management and conduct. In 1910 he arrived in Colorado, settling first at Iliff, where he engaged in the hardware, harness and implement business for three years. He then sold out and removed to Brush, where he established a similar store, and he now carries a very extensive stock. In fact his stock is larger than that found in any similar establishment in northern Colorado. He enjoys an extensive patronage and has been a close student of trade conditions. Watchful of every indication pointing to success, he has so directed his labors as to overcome obstacles and difficulties in his path and therefore he has gradually advanced step by step until he is now in a foremost place among the enterprising merchants of Morgan county.

On the 26th of November, 1889, Mr. Fawcett was married to Miss Mattie Worrall and to them have been born a son and a daughter. The former, Ernest W., who is in partnership with his father under the firm style of O. B. Fawcett & Son. is now instructor in an aviation school at San Diego, California. The daughter, Thelma E., is at home.

Mr. Fawcett has always been deeply interested in community welfare and has cooperated heartily in movements and projects for the public good. He votes with the republican party and for two terms has served as a member of the city council, exercising his official prerogatives in support of all plans that are looking toward the upbuilding of the district. He is a member of the Masonic fraternity, also of the Knights of Pythias and the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks. His religious faith is that of the Methodist Episcopal church and he is loyal to its teachings and purposes. In a word the sterling traits of his character are many and his life has been guided according to principles which in every land and clime awaken confidence and regard. To know Mr. Fawcett is to esteem and honor him and he counts his friends by the scores.
