Capitol Construction Workers

1898 City Directory. (209 Rondo would have been about here.)
William Hay, a stone cutter on the Capitol construction, died on Sept. 29, 1899 of what was called "consumption," in reality probably silicosis. His pallbearers included several Capitol stone cutters including Chase, Urquard and Ross. As was customary in the Journeyman Stone Cutters Union, his toolbox was raffled off by the Local and the proceeds given to his widow.
