He leaves a widow and two married daughters. He was a court reporter and while here was engaged in that line of work. The following is the San Francisco Chronicle's account of his death: - Dr. Edwin S. Belden, for many years official reporter in Judge Hunt's court, died very suddenly near Glen Ellen yesterday afternoon of heart failure. He leaves a widow and two married daughters. - Belden was on his vacation and was staying with Judge Hunt at J. G. Cromwell's hotel, Wagner Villa, about a mile from Glen Ellen. Yesterday afternoon he went out alone for a walk. As he did not return for dinner, a search was made and his body was found lying in the road where it had fallen.

Physicians who examined it say that death came painlessly and instantaneously at some time between 4 and 6 o'clock. - The deceased was 65 years old.

BELDIN, ELMERDaily Appeal – 06/26/1908, p. 1, continued on p. 5 – ELMER BELDIN IS DROWNED IN THE YUBA – Student In Marysville High School Met Death While Swimming Yesterday. – While his high school companions and classmates were assembled at the Marysville theater last evening forming an audience that he expected to be a part of, Elmer Beldin was lying at the bottom of the Yuba river, while half a hundred men and boys in boats and with grappling hooks were patroling the banks and river in vain efforts to rescue his body from the stream in which he met his death a few hours before. – Young Beldin was drowned in what is known as the canal, through which the Yuba river runs directly east of the Buckeye flouring mill. In company with Harry Barlow, Beldin went swimming in the canal yesterday afternoon at 3 o’clock. Neither of the boys could swim with any degree of safety, though they risked the swift current and made an effort to reach the opposite bank. They swam and paddled around on the Marysville side for a long time and finally decided to cross. – Beldin was about twenty-five feet below Barlow on their trip across the stream and when within twenty feet of the opposite bank they encountered water so deep that they could not get foothold on the sand. Up to that point they could wade. The boys endeavored to find high spots in the stream, but could not. Finally young Beldin called to Barlow and said: “Now, watch me swim,” and started to swim for a tree along the bank twenty feet away. – This was the last Barlow saw of his companion. Beldin was carried down stream and soon out of sight. He made no outcry from that time, according to Barlow. Barlow finally reached the opposite shore and walked down the river to the Southern Pacific trestle. He walked across and went up to the place where their clothing lay. He dressed himself and then rolled Beldin’s clothing up in a ball and placed it in some bushes, and started for town. – This was 4:30 o’clock. Barlow went at once to Frank Gordon’s gun shop on D street. Beldin was employed there, working and attending high school. Barlow asked Mr. Gordon if Elmer had returned yet. It was rather a surprising question for the boy to ask, under the circumstances, but he perhaps was frightened and thought of nothing else to say. Mr. Gordon finally got him to tell his story and he sent him at once to Coroner Kelly, where he told his tale to the coroner and an Appeal reporter. – The coroner immediately got a buggy and with assistance went to the spot where the lads entered the river. A crowd of men and boys gathered and with boats patrolled the river all night, but no trace of the body was found. The boy’s clothes were found where Barlow said they were. In fact, he accompanied the coroner and pointed out the spot where he had placed them. – Beldin was 17 years of age. He was the son of Mrs. Emma Jory Beldin, formerly of Marysville township, but who is now living in the state of Oregon, with her other children. Elmer Beldin did not desire to give up his school, so remained in this city and was living with and working for Gordon. He was a bright boy and would have graduated from the high school next term. His mother was formerly a teacher in the schools of this county and the family is well known. – Young Barlow, who was with Beldin when he drowned, is the son of J. H. Barlow, a section foreman, and lives at 924 B Street. – The search for the body will be continued today. In all probability it as [sic] been buried by the ever changing sand and its recovery is problematical.

Oroville Daily Register – 11/18/1920, Pg. 3 – MRS. BIRMINGHAM PIONEER OF ’50 IS DEAD – Chico, Nov. 17---Mrs. Elizabeth Mary Birmingham, one of the last of the pioneers of the early ‘50s, died here yesterday at the home of her son, A. B. Birmingham, at the age of 87 years. Her father who had come to California in 1849 was one of the original discoverers of the famous Plumas Eureka mine, returned to Illinois for his family and with them crossed the plains by ox team, settling in Johnstown, Plumas County. Here the family resided for some time, Mrs. Harrington moving to Strawberry Valley, Yuba County, where she made her home for more than 50 years. In 1869 she was married to James Thompson Birmingham and after his death in 1916, came to Chico, where she has since made her home with her son, A. B. Birmingham. Surviving relatives are a son, James E. Birmingham, of Ripon, San Joaquin County; a step-son, A. B. Birmingham, of Chico; a daughter, Mrs. Charles A. Hawkins, of Delta, Penn; two grandsons, Eldred R. Hawkins, of delta, Penn., and Earl Birmingham, of Hilt; a daughter, Gladys Birmingham, of Chico; and a sister, Mrs. Virginia E. Bedell, of San Francisco. (Note: The name shown above as Mrs. Harrington is puzzling. Historic records clearly show Georgianna, James Birmingham’s first wife along with Virginia Bedell and Elizabeth as the daughters of Valentine Miller who shows up in the 1860 Census for the Northeast Township of Yuba County).

BLACKMER, MRS. AL. W. & MARVIN
Appeal Democrat, Friday, July 26, 1946 Pg 1 - Suicide Leaves Three Meridian Dead - Ailing Man Turns Shotgun On Brother, Sister-in-Law, Friend In Double Slaying - Meridian, July 26. -Three Meridian residents are dead and one is in the Colusa hospital with critical wounds today, the result of a double murder and a suicide at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Al W. Blackmer in the early hours Thursday morning. Murdered are Mrs. A. W. Blackmer, 65, and Louis A. Moon, 77, her cousin, both victims of Marvin Blackmer, 69, who after slaying them with blasts from a 12-guage shotgun, turned the gun on himself, ending his life. In critical condition from shotgun wounds is Al W. Blackmer , brother of the murderer. As recounted by G. W. Carpenter, Sutter County sheriff, who was summoned to the scene last night after the tragedy had been disclosed., Marvin Blackmer arose about 2:45 a.m. Thursday in the cabin at the rear of his brother's home where he and Moon lived. He first turned the shotgun on Moon, killing him instantly and then entered the Blackmer home. Entering the bedroom where Mr and Mrs Blackmer were sleeping, he discharged a blast into the form of Mrs. Blackmer, a shot which Carpenter said wounded A. W. Blackmer. The slayer then aimed the gun at his brother's face, and pulled the trigger and left the room, retiring to his own quarters. Although the discharge left A. W. Blackmer with critical injuries, he is said to have regained consciousness long enough to stagger to the kitchen and then, unable to summon aid, returned to the bedroom where he lay down beside his wife. It was there he was found. - Lack of Activity Creates Suspicion - Carpenter said after returning to his cabin, Marvin Blackmer apparently attempted to put the shotgun beneath his chin in a suicide attempt. Finding the barrel too long, Carpenter said, the slayer cut off the end of the barrel with a hacksaw, tied a string from the trigger to his toe, replaced the gun under his chin and committed suicide. Bodies of the four were discovered at 7:48 last night by Clifton Davis who lives across the street from the Blackmer home. He told police he became suspicious when he noticed a lack of activity throughout the day and went to the Blackmer -Moon cabin to investigate. It was there he came upon Moon's body and after a search found the other victims. The sheriff and Coroner Burwell Ullrey were summoned. - Consider Having Man Committed. - A possible forewarning of the tragedy was seen by Carpenter through testimony of witnesses who said Mrs. Blackmer the day before had gone to Colusa to visit a daughter, Mrs. Lois Palletta. It was while there that Mrs. Blackmer is quoted as telling her daughter that "Marvin is getting more out of hand all the time and something must be done about him." A nephew, Harold Paxton of Yuba City said today that Mrs. Palletta and another daughter, Mrs. Ruth Allen, also of Colusa, discussed their mother's visit later that day and considered the possibility of having the man committed to a home. Marvin, Carpenter said, was a semi- invalid and was unable to talk coherently. He is said to have suffered an illness about 10 years ago, bringing on the speech impediment and loss of use of one of his arms and had been under the care of his brother and sister-in-law since that time. - Two Persons Recall Hearing Blasts - Witnesses, Carpenter said, declared that Marvin was unruly and had been getting worse in the past years. Investigation showed today that perhaps only two persons heard the fatal shotgun discharges. One was Mrs. Viola Doty who lived around the corner from the Blackmer's. She told Carpenter she had been feeling ill and that about 2:50 she arose to take medicine. She heard a percussion. However, since she said she had previously heard dogs howling in the neighborhood she believed someone was merely shooting at the dogs. The other person who claims to have heard the shots is Mrs. Davis, However, she discounted them as "backfire from passing machines" Carpenter said, and went back to sleep. - Former Teacher In Slough School - The Blackmer were well-known in the Meridian community. A. W. Blackmer is a native of Sutter county, born two miles south of town. She was a native of Colusa county. Blackmer was a rancher, operating his place south of town until 10 years ago when he sold out and retired, coming to town to live. Both were known to be devout and she was active in Meridian church and community circles. Last year she taught at the Slough grammar school and apparently intended to return this year. She also had served as librarian of the branch Sutter county library. - Set Funeral For Colusa - Besides their two daughters, the Blackmer's leave another daughter, Mrs Mary Carnegie of Meridian who is now visiting in Pennsylvania, and several grandchildren. Mrs Blackmer also has two sisters, Mrs Eva Paxton of Sutter and Mrs Clara Pickle of Ladoga. Coroner Ullrey said today the body of Mrs Blackmer will be taken by McNary funeral home in Colusa for last rites. The bodies of Marvin Blackmer and Moon will remain in the Ullrey home pending funeral plans. (A.H.)
Appeal Democrat, Tuesday, July 30, 1946 Pg 1 - Blackmer Improves - Al Blackmer, one of the victims in the Meridian shooting last Thursday in which three persons were killed is reported "doing fine" today by hospital authorities in Colusa.

His next office was that of Judge of the Tenth Judicial District, which he filled from 1859 to 1863. He served again as County Judge from 1868 to 1875 and also from 1877 to 1879. In 1882 he was elected District Attorney and discharged the duties of that position during the term. When not holding office he was engaged in the practice of his profession. - In politics Judge Bliss was a Democrat, and during the war he supported the side of the North. He was always a leader in the councils of the local party organization. - Judge Bliss was twice married. His first wife was Miss Jennie Phillips, by whom he had three children, all of whom died. His second wife was the widow of Thomas McCubbin, and a sister of the deceased Mrs. Bliss, also of Mrs. C. E. Stone of this city, and F. T. Phillips of Sacramento. She died a few months ago. - One of the first orchards in this vicinity was planted by Judge Bliss on the Feather river a short distance above town. There he made his home. The results of hydraulic mining ruined that valuable piece of property and forced him to abandon it. His old friends say that the worry and anxiety thus induced was a drain upon his vitality from which he never fully recovered. - The deceased was a man of strong friendships. He was widely known and esteemed throughout this portion of the State. His record in his official capacities and as a private citizen was beyond reproach. He led an abstemious life, but was generous to a fault. His tall, erect figure and commanding mien drew attention wherever he appeared. Though kind and gentle, he was brave, and on several occasions, when attacked, he proved his courage. His death will be widely regretted. - The funeral will take place on Sunday next. The Judge was a member of Rainbow Council, Order of Chosen Friends, and had taken out a policy of $3,000 in that organization for the benefit of little Etta Subers, a grandchild of the late Mrs. Bliss. He was devotedly attached to the child. - The bar of Yuba and Sutter counties will meet at 2 P.M. in the Court-house to-day to make suitable action in honor of the deceased.
Marysville Daily Appeal - 5/31/1887, p3 - Funeral of Judge Bliss - On Sunday afternoon fully one hundred persons crowded their way into the suite of rooms the late Judge S. M. Bliss had occupied, there to gaze upon the face of one whom they had long respected either as a friend or a public servant. Not an unmoistened eye was to be seen in the room, and as the remains were moved from the apartments to the church, all present, and especially the relatives of the deceased, were visibly affected. At the church many people had assembled to pay a tribute to the departed. Rev. W. M. Woodward found it an easy task to eulogized the deceased, and his sermon was fitted with an account of the many estimable traits of character possessed by the departed. The funeral procession was quite a long one, and the interment was witnessed by two hundred people who wore sorrowful faces. The members of the bar were present in a body. The pall-bearers were: Wallace Dinsmore, W. G. Murphy, J. H. Craddock, W. F. Phipps, S. H. Bradley, J. K. Hare, E. A. Forbes and W. L. Campbell.

Daily Appeal - 6/20/1905, p1 - One Dead And Other May Die From Shooting - Jim Boo, a Chinaman is Shot by Henry Thompson - Treacherous Mongolian Asked to Shake Hands and Then Drew Revolver - Coroner J. K. Kelly received a telephone message on Sunday night from Bangor informing him that Indian Henry Thompson had killed Jim Boo, a Chinaman, at Stanfield Hill, and that Thompson had been shot in the leg and was in need of a doctor to attend to his injuries. - Sheriff George H. Voss and District Attorney M. T. Brittan were at once notified, as were also J. H. Higgins and Geo. Lubman, the proprietors of Stanfield Hill store, who came to town that afternoon. - The District Attorney instructed Coroner Kelly to send up a doctor after ascertaining that Indian Henry had no means to pay for one. Dr. S. B. Swift was notified and he accompanied Mr. Higgins to Stanfield Hill. About midnight Coroner Kelly, Sheriff Geo. H. Voss and Deputy Sheriff Steve Howser started for the scene of the shooting. - It will be remembered that Jim Boo, who was known as a half-breed Chinaman, married Indian Henry's daughter, Ella Booth, a few years ago. When she died last July it was reported that she had been poisoned by and Indian medicine man, but the fact was afterwards established that her death was caused by inflammation of the bowels. - Some months ago Thompson placed a headstone over the grave, putting on the name Ella Booth. This made Boo angry, and when later he proposed to marry her sister there was no end of trouble between the two men. - On Sunday evening they met at Higgins & Lubman's store and Boo at once commenced to pick a quarrel with Indian Henry, who declined to have anything to do with him, and left for home. It is reported that Boo flourished a revolver and made threats against Indian Henry's life and then followed him to his cabin. As he came near to the cabin, Indian Henry came out and Boo put out his right hand and said: "Let us shake hands and be friends once more." - The Indian reached forward and grasped his hand, and the Chinaman pulled out his revolver and fired, the bullet grazing the Indian's left side. Indian Henry caught hold of the revolver and another shot was fired, the bullet entering his right leg above the knee. The Indian was game, although wounded, as he wrenched the weapon from the Chinaman and beat him over the head with the handle. He called for help, as his strength was failing and ran to the house and got his own revolver which his daughter gave him and with which he shot Boo in the head, killing him instantly. He at once sent his son, Elmer, to Bangor to notify the coroner, as the telephone at the store was not in working order. - The scene of the tragedy is twenty-two miles from Marysville on the Camptonville and Downieville road. - Coroner Kelly brought the body of Boo to the morgue and Sheriff Voss and his deputy brought Thompson to the county hospital. - Indian Henry worked for the late Mrs. Landecker at Stanfield Hill for many years, and Jim Boo, who was a cook, also worked there, and for others who resided in the vicinity. He was a hard drinker, and on one occasion was arrested in Marysville for being drunk. He had been drinking on Sunday and had some whisky when killed. - The testimony at hand shows that Indian Henry, who is an old man, shot Boo in self-defense. - Dr. S. B. Swift performed an autopsy yesterday afternoon on the body of Jim Boo at the Morgue. He located the bullet in the lower portion of the brain, five inches from the point of entrance. He found a deep cut on the forehead that was caused by a blow from a revolver and found an abrasion on his breast. He is satisfied that he is a full-blooded Chinaman who was born in this state. - Coroner J. K. Kelly will hold an inquest at 10 o'clock this morning. - It was learned last evening that Henry Thompson's injured leg had swelled up considerably during the afternoon. County Physician C. E. Stone, Dr. J. H. Barr and Dr. S. B. Swift will make an examination this morning and decide if it will be necessary to amputate it. The old man has suffered considerable pain and has expressed the wish that death might end his suffering.

BOYD, ROBERT W.
Marysville Daily Appeal - 1/24/1904, p1 - Robert W. Boyd Dead - After an Illness of Many Months He at Last Yields to the Inevitable - Eugene M. Boyd received a telegram about noon yesterday notifying him of the death of his brother, Robert W. Boyd, at Avalon, Catalina Island, yesterday morning. - Mr. Boyd had but left Marysville with his wife last Monday, going to Los Angeles, and reaching the island on Wednesday. He had been ill with Bright's disease and consumption and went there with the hope of recovering his health. - C. R. Boyd of Yuba City, a cousin of the deceased, left for Los Angeles yesterday afternoon. He will meet Mrs. Boyd and accompany her and her late husband's remains to Yuba City. The interment will probably take place in the Yuba City Cemetery, where Robert Boyd's mother is buried. - Robert Wilcoxon Boyd was born in Yuba City on June 10, 1872. His father is N. E. Boyd, now living at Napa, but for many years a resident of Sutter county, and his mother, a highly respected and most estimable woman, was before her marriage Miss Laura Wilcoxon. She died in 1882, and her children were from that time brought up in the household of their grandparents, Hon. C. E. Wilcoxon and wife. Robert received his education in the public schools of Yuba City, and in due time went to work for the firm of Weinlander & Hexter, in Marysville. Leaving there as cashier in October, 1891, he was for four years bookkeeper for the Hampton Hardware Company. He next occupied a similar position for an equal period in the hardware house of White, Cooley & Cutts, and then returned to the Hampton Hardware Company as a stockholder, and vice president of the corporation - a position which he held at the time of his death. He was for several years secretary of the Pacific Retail Hardware Association, and was re-elected to that office at the meeting held in Sacramento during the week just past. Mr. Boyd stood high in the mercantile world, being a thorough hardware man, strictly attentive to business, and of the firmest integrity. - On October 6, 1898, Mr. Boyd was married at San Mateo, to Miss Henrietta Shepard, daughter of E. A. Shepard of San Francisco, a former resident of Marysville. Mrs. Boyd survives her husband. Their life together was an ideally happy one, and Mrs. Boyd's devotion during her husband's prolonged illness was pathetic. Besides his wife, his father, N. E. Boyd of Napa, and a younger brother, Eugene M. Boyd, bookkeeper in the Farmers' Union at Yuba City, Mr. Boyd leaves a sister, Miss Julia L. Boyd, who is a student in the State Normal School at San Jose, a grandmother, Mrs. C. E. Wilcoxon of Yuba City, and numerous uncles, aunts and cousins, many of whom also reside in Yuba City. - While Mr. Boyd's greatest pleasure was his home life, he was nevertheless an active and prominent member of several fraternal organizations. He had recently became past master of Corinithian Lodge,No. 9, F. and A.M., he was a member of Washington Chapter, No. 13, R.A.M.; was secretary of the Masonic Board of Relief at the time of his death; and was also a member of Marysville Lodge, No. 364, Modern Woodsmen of America, in which order he held an insurance of $3000. He was the secretary of the Yuba County Game and Fish Protective Association, being an enthusiastic lover of out-door sports. - Modest and unassuming to a degree, Mr. Boyd had nevertheless, by the warmth of his nature and fineness of his character drawn to him a large circle of friends, who were deeply attached to him. His untimely death is regretted throughout the community.

BREWSTER, Dr. S. T.
Plumas National (Quincy) – 12/18/1875 – Died – At Marysville, December 9th, 1875, Dr. S. T. Brewster , aged 47 years.
Death of Dr. S. T. Brewster – Dr. Brewster, formerly and for many years a resident of La Porte, in this county, died at Marysville, on the 9th inst. He was well and favorably known by all our citizens, and his many friends will join us in tendering heartfelt sympathy to his bereaved family. We republish from the Marysville Appeal of the 12th inst., the following beautiful obituary:
In the death of Dr. Brewster this city has lost one of it’s most remarkable men; one of wonderful energy and determination of character. Nothing discouraged , and nothing daunted him. Obstacles seemed only to increase exertion and give new zeal to energetic action. Impressed with the idea that there was “no such word as fail,” he often put forth efforts that could have been endured by but few men, sometimes riding for twenty-four hours at a time through pitiless storms and muddy roads that would have appalled others but which had no terror for him, and never prevented the accomplishment of a purpose, nor did it make the least difference whether this purpose was to serve a friend or punish an enemy, to push some business transaction to successful termination or to relieve the wants of suffering humanity. With an individuality strongly marked, he never was satisfied to follow, bought sought to lead and enjoy prominent positions. Radical in politics, zealous in patriotism, faithful in friendship and generous in charity, he could occupy none but positive positions. And these traits characterized his acts to the very hour of dissolution. Dr. Brewster was born at Aurora, a beautiful town on Cayuga Lake, New York, in 1827, and was consequently 48 years old at the time of his death. He was at an early age elected President of the Young Men’s Institute of Cayuga, and there he also studied medicine. But a spirit like his could not long brook the restraints of an old and staid community, while such alluring prospects were presented in the far distant, and then, almost unknown land. He therefore came with the “star of empire” which rolled so rapidly westward in 1849. We first met him in this city in March, 1850. On our arrival we found him occupying a tent on the Plaza, at the foot of High street, and true to his benevolent instincts he had shared it with a poor fellow who had broken his leg, which was being treated by Dr. Brewster. He continued the practices of his profession but a few years, when his health became impaired from the discomforts and exposures of those early days, which induced him to seek other and more congenial climes, but after spending a few years in the southern portion of California, and some part of Mexico, he returned to this section of the State in perfect health, which he continued to enjoy until about one year when he was injured by the accidental fall of a floodgate in a mining ditch and from the time of this accident we may date his declining health. For many years Dr. Brewster was largely interested in mail contracts and stage lines, but having disposed of these a few years ago, he has since been engaged in land and other speculations. He was well and favorably known to the stock men throughout the State, having for many years taken an active part in the various committees at the State and other Agricultural Societies, and in 1873 was elected President of the Northern District Society. Dr. Brewster was married ……………. and leaves a wife and daughter to mourn his untimely death. The unfaltering devotion and watchful care bestowed upon him during his last painful illness, attests, in terms stronger than words can paint, the beauty and strength of woman’s love and the self-sacrificing nature of a wife’s affection. His little daughter, Hattie, still too young to fully appreciate the extent of the loss she has sustained, will greatly miss the kind caress and good-night kiss that she was in the daily habit of receiving from her affectionate father. They will receive, as they deserve, the tender sympathy of his and their many friends. Dr. Brewster belongs to all the Masonic bodies from the Blue Lodge to the Commandery, and has been a faithful and zealous member of them all, and was still an officer of one or more of them at the time of his death. Indeed it may almost be said that Masonry was his religion. It’s sublime precepts, and the beautiful lessons thereby taught had made a lasting impression upon his mind. The Faith, Hope and Charity of the first degree, supplemented by the Brotherly love, Relief and Truth of all of them may well be crowned by the solemn and impressive ceremonies of the Templar degree. The body of our deceased friend is now lying in state at the Masonic Hall, from which it will be followed to the grave at 2 p.m., today, by the various Masonic bodies to which he belonged. (B. S.)

BROWN, ASCHER PARKER
Appeal - 10/19/1911 - The sad intelligence reached Smartsville last Monday of the death of Ascher Parker Brown. The deceased was a brother-in-law of F. Congdon of this place and for many years was one of our most respected and esteemed citizens. Mr. Brown, in the hydraulic days, was a trusted employe of the Excelsior Water and Mining company and at the closing down of the mines went into the butcher business, where he will be best remembered. He was a veteran of the Grand Army and most devoted to the Stars and Stripes. About fifteen years ago, with his family, he moved to Los Angeles, where he resided up to the time of his demise, which occurred last Friday. The funeral took place in that city yesterday under the auspices of the order of the F. and A.M., of which was a long and honored member. He leaves to mourn his loss, besides a wife, two daughters, one of whom resides in Los Angeles and one in the east, with whom we sincerely condole.
BROWN, BENJAMIN H.
Appeal Democrat - 10/19/1929, p1 - Last Yuba County Veteran Of Civil War Buried With Military Honors Of Legion - Funeral services for the late Benjamin H. Brown, last surviving Yuba county veteran of the Grand Army of the Republic, was held at Brownsville, Saturday, at 2 p.m., the body being laid in a grave there beside his wife. - The honors bestowed upon the nation's heroes were not lacking. A firing squad from Yuba-Sutter post of the American Legion, Marysville, fired volleys over the grave, a bugler sounded taps, while the Stars and stripes waved over the scene. Ray Flannery, commander, and Clarence Galligan, adjutant of the post, officiated at the head of the squad. - The Funeral He Wanted - It was as Ben Brown had hoped it would be. A thorough patriot all his life, but the only surivor in this county of the blue hosts that preserved the Union, with no nearby Grand Army post operative because the members have died, he had feared in late years that he might not be accorded a military funeral. - To this end he had a friend, A. C. Bates, communicate with County Auditor Fred H. Greely in Marysville a few days before death came, asking that some way be found to give Brown this last honor. Corinth Post, G. A. R., of Marysville, is no longer existent, and the Oroville post, to which he had belonged, has also gone. - Legion Takes Charge - The American Legion saw to it several years ago that the Grand Army veterans should be cared for to the end. Brown and the few remaining members were given honorary membership in the Legion post and each has been accorded every possible honor, assistance and benefit while alive and a military funeral at death. So it was that when Brown died, the Legion took charge. - The religious rites were administered by a minister of the Baptist church at Oroville. He was a man of high ideals and sturdy industry. It was an easy matter for the minister to pay a glowing tribute to his memory. - Devotion Is Willed - When Brown made his will one clause of it bequeathed to the nation his devotion. His old home, burned some time ago, held a large collection of war relics, and the loss of these were his greatest regret after the fire. - He is survived by his son, Charles G. Brown, formerly of Yuba City, and by his sister, Mrs. William B. Beecroft, of Brownsville, at whose home he lived. He had been drawing a pension for years, and had been sick the past year and a half. - Fred H. Greely, Jason R. Meek, Tom E. Bevan and George Mix went up from Marysville to attend the funeral.
Appeal Democrat - 10/19/1929, p9 - Last Yuba Co. Veteran of '64 Is Eulogized - County Auditor Fred H. Greely of Yuba county was the speaker at the weekly luncheon meeting of the Exchange club at Hotel Marysville Friday and his address took the unusual tone of an eulogy for a departed citizen. - Benjamin H. Brown, only remaining Yuba county Grand Army man, whose death at Brownsville had just been announced, was the subject. He was born at Fort Wayne, Ind., and enlisted in the infantry there, serving throughout the Civil War. He had lived in Nevada awhile, then in Downieville, and in 1879 moved to Brownsville. - He was a member of the Grand Army post at Oroville until it went out of existence. A friend wrote Greely a few days ago in behalf of Brown, asking if Corinth Post of Marysville could give him a veteran's burial. But Greely had to send word that Corinth Post, too, because there were none to keep it going, has ceased to exist. Its two remaining members are Judge W. E. Tucker and J. A. Ashley, both of Yuba City. - Brown had been made an honorary member of the American Legion, however, so will not want for honors due a veteran. - Greely related that some years ago, when Brown wrote his will he closed it with the paragraph, "I bequeath to our country my lasting devotion and love." - Joe Sauer announced that the club's annual Sunshine Special, when the children of the two counties will be given a theater party at the National, will be held on Dec. 21. Committees have been named and arrangements are under way. The club has more than $300 available for the purpose. - Frank Williamson will be chairman next Friday, when the Salvation Army will have the program. - Vice President Peter Minor presided in the absence of President Roy Bostic.

Daily Appeal – 07/20/1906, p. 1, continued on p. 8 – CHARLES FRANCIS BRYANT – Marysville Boy, Who Achieved Fame, Passes Away. – Charles Francis Bryant, a Marysville boy who achieved great success in the theatrical world for one so young in years, passed away yesterday afternoon, about 2 o’clock, at the home of his mother and brothers, on C street, after an illness of over a year. Death was due to tuberculosis, and he was aged 29 years, 11 months and 19 days. He was the son of the late Charles Bryant, who was a pioneer horseshoer of Marysville. – While a mere boy, Charles Bryant showed a remarkable interest in and ability for theatrical work. He was a close student of Shakespeare, and many of that author’s masterpieces were memorized, and practically all of his works were carefully read. He also gave considerable time to a study of elocution, for which he was well adapted, and by continuing his work along that line he eventually became, while yet a young man, one of the foremost theatrical men of the country. – When only eighteen years of age he left Marysville for San Francisco, where he began to study for the stage. He secured employment with Fred Belasco, one of the best known theatrical men on the Coast, and while in that position he went on the stage at the Grand Opera House for the first time. He had been studying hardly a year when he made his first appearance on the stage. Shortly after his appearance at the Grand Opera House he accepted the position of assistant stage manager at the Alcazar Theater. He filled that position satisfactorily, and was soon promoted to stage manager. A few years later he took the position of stage director. His services were of the best and he became known throughout the city as one of the coming great theatrical men. David Belasco, one of the greatest theatrical men in New York and a brother of Fred Belasco, hearing of Mr. Bryant’s great work sent for him and managed to take him away from his brother Fred. Mr. Bryant, soon after going to his new position in New York, gained considerable fame. He had full charge of all the large theatrical companies showing out of New York on the circuit. Although his work was great, Belasco got most of the credit, which he in no way deserved. An article published in one of the leading papers of the East told of Mr. Bryant’s great work, and how Belasco received credit which he did not deserve. – Bryant was in his last position for about three years when he was taken ill and he consulted many of the leading physicians of the East. They advised him to go to the Adirondack mountains. He went to the mountains and was there about six weeks, but his health not improving in the least he returned. He was determined not to give up his work, and went to New York. His health became much worse and other physicians advised him to go to Arizona. He went to Arizona, but did not improve and he finally came back to his home in Marysville last April. – He was married to Miss Convere Jones in North Carolina, three years ago. His wife was then an actress of great ability. – Bryant was a member of the Bohemian Club of San Francisco and of the famous Lambs Club of New York. – These are two clubs composed of noted men. – He was a member of the local order of Elks. – During his stage career he gained much fame, both at home and abroad, and articles were published in papers with his picture and describing his great work. When taken sick he was in a position to demand almost any salary without fear of being refused. – He leaves a wife, mother and two brothers, Dan and Walter Bryant. – No plans have yet been made for the funeral.

Daily Appeal - Thu 4/21/1892, p2 - The Funeral of James Bryden - A Pioneer Resident of Yuba County Laid to Rest - James Bryden was laid to rest yesterday by the side of two of his children who had preceded him in the journey which follows life. The plot is on the home place and it was at his own earnest request that he was burried [sic] there. Quite a number drove from Marysville to attend the funeral and many friends from the surrounding farms were present to pay the last mark of respect to one who in life was a true man and a good neighbor. The funeral was held at the late residence on the Honcut at 10 o'clock yesterday morning. The services were conducted by the Rev. Leonard J. Garver, and appropriate music was rendered by a choir consisting of Mrs. Arthur Boulton, Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Phipps and Prof. Sears. The floral offerings by sympathetic friends were many, several of the pieces being unusually beautiful in design. - The gentlemen who acted as pall-bearers were: W. T. Ellis, D. McDonald, C. C. Hampton, C. S. Brooks, William Pierson and A. S. Wight. - James Bryden was one of Yuba county's wealthiest farmers. He was respected by all and those who knew him best regarded him as a warm, true-hearted, generous man, a fitting representative of those sturdy pioneers who learned in the trying times of early days to look upon humanity with a kindly eye, ever willing to help a friend, ever ready to lend a helping hand to those less fortunate than themselves. He came to California in 1850, crossing the plains with the relatives of the estimable lady who subsequently became his wife. He first engaged in mining and seemed to be blessed with fortune from the start, for in a very short time he had accumulated a sufficient sum of money to purchase a farm on the Honcut. This formed the nucleus for the large property which is now known as the Bryden ranch, situated about fourteen miles from Marysville and three miles from Moore's Station. - The deceased was always a busy, energetic man, and when about four years ago he was attacked by the sickness which finally resulted in his death, he refused to give up until his health was completely undermined. During the days of suffering that followed he was attended by a faithful, loving wife, who not only ministered to his every want but took the cares of the business into her own hands and managed them with success. Mr. Bryden leaves a widow, five daughters and a son. Only one of the children is married, the eldest daughter being the wife of Dr. Gates of Moore's Station.

He had been located at Gilroy, but ill-health had caused his retirement from active service and he had lived in this city for the past ten months."
Marysville Evening Democrat - Wed 1/19/1916, p1 - Tragedy Occurs On Browns Valley Road - Supervisor John Casey and Miss Bessie Burris Drowned When Auto Plunged Down Embankment and Turned Over Into Irrigation Ditch; Mrs. Casey and Mrs. Charles Taylor Inside Closed Car But Manage to Escape and Get Help - One of the saddest automobile accidents to occur in this vicinity in some time happened about 6 o'clock Tuesday evening and resulted in the death of John J. Casey, Yuba County supervisor from the Browns Valley district, and Miss Bessie Burris, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Byron Burris, well known residents of Browns Valley, and slight injury to Mrs. Casey and Mrs. Charles Taylor, the other two occupants of the auto. - The accident happened at a point on the Browns Valley grade about five miles north of Marysville, shortly after the automobile party had left this city on their return to their homes in Browns Valley. The automobile, a Ford-car, skidded off a six-foot grade, struck a slight rise, and turned over into a small ditch that is being dug in that vicinity. The two occupants of the front seat, Casey and Miss Burris, were pinned under the auto by the steering gear and the windshield, both their heads being under the foot of water which the ditch contained and before any assistance could reach them they had both drowned. Mrs. Casey and Mrs. Taylor, riding in the rear seat of the auto, escaped with a severe shock and a few minor bruises. - After Assistance - Immediately after the accident occurred, Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. Casey, finding that they could do nothing for the two victims pinned under the car, started out for help. Mrs. Casey started toward Browns Valley and Mrs. Taylor started back toward Marysville. After walking about two miles, calling hysterically for help, Mrs. Casey came upon Frank Kupser, a well-known Browns Valley man, who returned with her to the scene of the wreck, but he found that he was powerless to do anything alone, and he went to telephone for assistance. In the meantime Mrs. Taylor located some foreigners but was unable to make them understand and returned to the scene of the wreck. - E. S. Austin, representative of the A. J. Marx Music House of Sacramento, and L. J. Francis, local representative of the company, came along in an auto, and found Mrs. Casey at the scene of the wreck, who implored them to do something, but when they attempted to lift the car up they found that more men were needed to accomplish anything, so they brought Mrs. Casey and Mrs. Taylor to Marysville and notified local authorities and a rescue party was detailed to rush to the scene, which they did in automobiles. - Kupser Gets Aid - When the rescue party from this city reached the scene of the accident, Frank Kupser, Frank Gregory, and Charles Elisalda had succeeded in righting the overturned auto and removed the prostrate forms of Casey and Miss Burris from underneath. Casey was dead when removed but there seemed to be some life in Miss Burris, but every effort to resuscitate her proved futile and when Drs. A. L. Miller and Everett Gray arrived on the scene they pronounced the young woman dead. - Byron Burris, father of the girl victim, arrived on the scene soon after Kupser, and the other men had removed the victims from beneath the auto. - Lost Control - According to the story told by the two women occupants of the car, Casey lost control of the car while in a rut, and the road being quite slippery in that part, it swerved to one side and the first thing the occupants of the car knew the machine started down the steep grade, and when it struck a slight rise at the bottom of the grade, turned completely over and landed in the ditch. - Mrs. Casey and Mrs. Taylor found the water surging up about them and fearing that they would be drowned, fought desperately for their lives and finally succeeded in tearing the storm curtains from the machine and gaining their freedom. They did not seem to be injured, so they made their way to the top of the grade and started for assistance. - Two Victims Drowned - Undoubtedly the two victims, Casey and Miss Burris, were drowned, as the wounds upon the bodies were not sufficient to cause death. Only a slight abrasion was found on the head of Miss Burris, while Casey sustained a slight bruise on one finger. - Immediately upon hearing of the accident, Coroner J. K. Kelly, together with his assistants, rushed to the scene of the accident, and after the victims had both been pronounced dead, Coroner Kelly took charge of the remains which were brought to Marysville, where they are now at the coroner's office. - The Ford auto which Casey was driving at the time of the accident was only slightly damaged, considering the fall over the grade. Aside from a badly damaged windshield and broken top, the car was in fairly good condition when it had been righted. It was removed today and brought to town for repairs. - Cause of Accident - There are many reasons vouchsafed as to the cause of the accident, but the most feasible one is that the driver lost control when he turned around to say something to his wife. The occupants were eating a lunch which they had with them at the time. When Casey turned around to say something he failed to keep the car in the road, and when it struck a sort of rut in the road the steering gear swerved quickly and the car shot down the embankment. - Casey and his wife and Mrs. Taylor and Miss Burris had been spending the day in Marysville at the home of Miss Iola Dunning, sister of Mrs. Casey, after bidding goodbye to Mrs. Taylor's mother, who had departed for San Francisco for a visit with friends.

BYRNE, EDITH ETHEL
Marysville Appeal - 11/6/1918, p4 - Baby of Entire Stricken Family Passes to Beyond - Edith Ethel Byrne, six months of age, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Chester Burns, 110 Third street, died early yesterday morning of spinal meningitis, following an attack of influenza. A little brother, James, is stricken with pneumonia induced by influenza, which attacked Mrs. Byrne, and another baby, Wilbert. - This entire family with the exception of the father were ill at one time and for several days the father worked night and day trying to alleviate the suffering of his loved ones. - The Red Cross influenza committee was notified and several of the angels of mercy were sent to the home and for days one woman, especially devoted the greater part of her time helping. - James, the brother stricken with pneumonia, was on the verge of death, and saved undoubtedly by the devotion of this Red Cross volunteer, who seemed to have the power to make the child fight for its life. - An attempt was made to send the family to the Red Cross hospital, but there was no room at that worthy institution, and Mrs. David Powell, chairman of the committee, has been supplying other nurses at the home to relieve those who had become exhausted by their work. - The story is told only that more volunteers come forward to help in other cases equally as sad. No words can describe the magnificent work done here and at other places where these merciful, brave and loyal women have rendered their loving ministrations, but there must be others offer to relieve them if the situation is ever to be gotten under control and the lives of babies be saved, for it is only the want of care in many cases that would prevent fatal results.
