Calvin Huddleston was born at Kanawha Falls on the Kanawha River, Kanawha County, West Virginia, August 29, 1839. He died at Grangeville, Idaho, November 30, 1925, aged 86 years and 3 months, after a brief illness. He followed boating in early manhood, and was for awhile manager for the Snow Hill Company in West Virginia.
In 1862 at the age of twenty three, he came west to Oregon by ox-team. Two brothers preceded him to the west. He did placer mining in Oregon, California, Idaho and elsewhere. He made three trips to Alaska, on the second of which he went far into the interior with no companions but his dogs. He engaged in trapping in later years up until last winter. He was a typical mountaineer, the city had no lure for him. In his last illness he wished to go to the hills. He never married and was not a member of any church or fraternal order.
He is survived by three nieces and one nephew in the east. Respected by all who knew him, he was a manly man, just and generous, strong and courageous. His was the life of simplicity and sincerity, foolish fades and frivolous follies, he was free from and what ever was his beliefs, conceptions, ideals, and opinions, they are known only to God.
Funeral was December 3, 1925, from E.S. Hancock undertaking parlors. W.N. Knox, minister officiating. A male quartet consisting of Messrs: Barber, Taylor, Ayears, and Bell, furnished the music. Interment at Grangeville Cemetery. Songs sang were Abide With Me and Farewell Brother. Rock of Ages was sung at the grave.

Ed, as he was known, was held in high esteem by his many friends in his western home and also at his old home. He leaves to mourn his loss, one brother Overton Hickman, and two sisters, Mrs. M. A. Chappell, and Mrs. F. S. Humiston, all of Hutchinson. The funeral services were held at the home of J. E. Connor in Medford township, Reno Co., Thursday, June 23, at 10 a.m. The services were conducted by Rev. W. L. Hinshaw of Burrton, assisted by Rev. L. E. Fahrney. The remains were laid to rest in Cottonwood cemetery at Sterling.
