LEGALLY DEAD YET ALIVE [Newspaper Article] — Imperial Valley Press — 11 May 1901
LEGALLY DEAD YET ALIVE A Man Endeavoring to Establish His Existance After having been legally "killed" and buried, Mortimer Montpetit of Walla Walla, is engaged in an effort to have himself restored to life by due process of law. Montpetit a few years ago worked on a ranch near Walla Walla and was a frequent visitor to that city. One evening, after having been in town all day, he suddenly disappeared. A few months later a man was found dead in a warehouse that had been destroyed by fire. The body was identified as that of Montpetit and the lodge at Starbuck was notified. The lodge ordered a firstclass funeral and a nice headstone was erected over the grave. When Montpetit returned he took down the headstone, but has not yet succeeded in having the records changed. He has now invoked the aid of the courts. He was visiting in Ohio when officially buried in Walla Walla.

A hitch was discovered, which put a stop to further proceedings with the marriage ceremony. Both bride and groom-elect tried their persuasive powes upon the registrar to convince him that everything was right, but he was obdurate. Documentary evidence was what he required. As this could only be obtained in America, the disconsolate pair were perforce obliged to return to their hotels. Cable messages for the needful papers were at once dispatched to New York, and on receipt of the muchwanted papers the knot will be tied. Phyllis Rankin is well known in San Francisco, where she once resHled. She eloped with her father's property man when she was sixteen years old, and was divorced from him two years ago.
