Sr.----Telegrams were received from Omaha last Monday announcing the
death of On. E. Amoretti Sr.
The funeral party consisting of his widow and Mesers E.
Amoretti Jr. and P. J. Creedon, arrived at Lander with the remains
Tuesday evening, having been joined at Glen Rock by Hon. And Mrs. J.
E. Higgins. The party
was met at the station by the members of the family here, the city
council, those connected with the First National Bank and Central
Trust Company and other friends who took charge of the casket and
conveyed it to the family residence, where it remained until the
funeral Thursday morning at 10 oclock.
Amoretti was on his way up from Florida to spend the summer at
Lander as usual, when he was taken ill at Omaha, and his condition
became so serious that his son Eugene was summoned by
telegraph. The latter
was at his ranch on
Wind river at the time, but upon receipt of the message made a
hurried trip to Lander and took the train for Omaha the following
morning. He found his
father much better and improving, so that it was thought he would
recover. But the hot
weather and the weakness resulting from his severe attack were
against him and he died suddenly on July 3rd after a comfortable morning
and in the midst of preparations for his removal to a hospital in
the city for more quiet surroundings.
Amoretti Sr. was born in 1821 at Villafranca, Nice, then a province
of Italy. He left home
at an early age to try his fortune in America, and a history of his
extensive travels and experiences would read like a romance. He spent several years in
California in the midst of the gold excitement of the 1860s ,
engaged in the mercantile business, and visited Central and South
America several times
in that connection.
After various experiences he came to South Pass, Wyoming, in
1868, and became interested in mining, at the same time conducting
general stores at that place, Atlantic City and Miners Delight,
trading with the miners, settlers and Indians and participating in
the dangers and excitements of frontier life. He removed to Lander in 1877
and engaged in the mercantile business, later opening a private bank
here, which was later merged into the present First National Bank of
which he has been president since its incorporation in 1892. He also established a bank
at Thermopolis some years later and was for several years president
of the First National Bank of that place. At the time of his death he
was president of the Shoshone National Bank of Cody, Wyoming, and
the private bank of Amoretti, Barclay & Co. at Bridger,
Montana. He was also
president of the local electric light company and prominently
identified with many other business enterprises, although during the
latter years of his life his winters were spent in the milder
climate of Florida, where he owned and managed an orange grove. He was prominent in a public
way, having served as the first mayor of Lander and as a member of
the legislature from Fremont county and in other positions. He was a member of the local
Masonic and Odd Fellows lodges and of Mount Horeb Chapter of R. A.
M. and of Hugh de Payen Commandery K. T.
Amoretti was in many ways a remarkable man and a useful man in his
generation, whose picturesque figure will not soon be
forgotten. He was a man
of broad sympathies and ripe experience. No worthy charity was ever
turned away from him empty handed and he gave liberally to public
purposes in the upbuilding of his favorite town, county and
state. Among other
Benefactions he donated the block where the court house now stands
and joined his associates in gifts of sites for the Roman Catholic
and Episcopal churches and for the public library. He was a builder and erected
several business blocks and two additions to the town of Lander bear
his name. He was never
happier than when engaged in some plan for the material growth of the town.

His first marriage was in Italy in 1851 and his first wife
