CASAD, IDA MAY
Daily Evening Telegraph - Fri 9/27/1867, p3 - Sudden Death - The little daughter of officer M. R. Casad died last evening very suddenly. It was their only child and was one of the sweetest flowers ever transplanted in the Heavenly nursery. Only the evening before it was well and sitting on the verandah sweetly singing "The flag which makes me free," With a degree of art far beyond her years. Her smartness and vivacity doubly endeared her to every one. The loss to her parents is almost unbearable. We deeply sympathize with the afflicted parents, and trust they may find condolence in that source which never fails to comfort the mourner.

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. They left Miss Dunning's place at about dusk on their return to Browns Valley. - Supervisor Casey was 52 years of age, and was born and raised in Yuba County, where he had resided practically all his life. He was quite well known, and had many friends who will regret to hear of the sad affair. He was supervisor of district No. 4 for the past three years, and during 1913 served as chairman of the board of supervisors of Yuba County. He was a prominent member of the Marysville Lodge No. 783, B.P.O.E., Marysville Lodge No. 1, E. Clampus Vitas, and Marysville Parlor No. 6, Native Sons of the Golden West. He is survived by a wife, two children, three brothers and two sisters. - Miss Burris, 23 years of age, was quite a favorite among the younger social set of Browns Valley, and possessed a legion of friends who will mourn her loss. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Byron Burris and has made her home with her parents at Browns Valley from girlhood. Besides her parents she is survived by two sisters and a brother.

CASEY, MARY JANE
Appeal - 8/22/1882, p2 - Died: In Linda township, Yuba county, August 20th, Mary Jane, daughter of Winifred and Peter Casey, aged 14 years and 6 months.
Marysville Daily Appeal - 1/7/1902, p1 - About "Tom" Casey - Something of His Life and Estate and Probable Disposition of Property - The brief announcement was made in Sunday's Appeal that "Thomas Casey, well known in Marysville and Yuba county, where he had large property interests, had died that morning at 2:15 at his home in Marysville township." - The news of his death reached this city just as The Appeal was going to press at 4 o'clock, and was, therefore, too late for a more extended notice. - The deceased was a native of the county Galway, Ireland, where he was born in 1832, and at the time of his death, which resulted from pneumonia, was about 70 years of age. He had been a resident of Marysville and vicinity since 1854. - Soon after his arrival to Marysville, Mr. Casey went to work for Paxton, Brumagin & Co., cleaning up around the bank. He was so industrious and trustworthy that John A. Paxton took an interest in him and invested his earnings for him. He next turned his hand to peddling water, which was a very profitable business in those days, and afterwards started a fish market on Third street, which he conducted successfully for about twenty years. His brother, Martin Casey, worked for him the greater portion of the time, and ran the market for himself for a short time. - The deceased eventually became the owner of 640 acres of land in Marysville Township, which he stocked, and also of 960 acres of stock range in the foothills, on which he kept his stock during the summer months. - He also became the owner of the "Casey row" on D street, the Kelly store-building, and several houses on Fifth street; the Meyers bakery-building, a two-thirds interest in the City Market, and some property in Chinatown. He was also the owner of property in Oakland, the value of which may be estimated at from $2000 to $5000. - To make a conservative estimate, the deceased owned property valued at from fifty to sixty thousand dollars. - During a recent visit to Oakland, he stated that he had deeded his property there to his niece, Mrs. C. Carn, better known in Marysville as Theresa Meaghter. He also stated that he had made out a deed for his two ranches in Yuba county to his nephew, Martin Joseph Nealon, who has managed the ranches for him for several years. - This would leave but the property in the city of Marysville to be disposed of, and it is known that there is a will in existence. He sent for his attorney last Saturday to make some changes in this document, but when the lawyer arrived at the ranch the deceased was not in a condition to transact any business as a change had come over his condition for the worse. - Mr. Casey was naturalized in the District Court of Yuba county on October 15, 1860. - He was popular with the young people whom he called his "kids" and would sing for them the "Old Oaken Bucket" or some other of his favorite airs. He was kind to those of his relatives that he believed were deserving of it, but lately neglected his own comforts. - The funeral cortege will leave his late residence at 8 o'clock this morning and proceed to St. Joseph's Church, where the services will be held at 10 o'clock. The interment will take place in the Catholic cemetery.
Marysville Appeal - 1/8/1902, p1 - Earth to Earth - All That Was Mortal of Tom Casey Now Rests in The Grave - Tom Casey was laid at rest yesterday in the family plot in the Catholic Cemetery. - Requiem mass for the repose of his soul was celebrated at St. Joseph's Church at 10 o'clock by Rev. M. Coleman, in the presence of many who had come to pay a last mark of respect to his memory. - The remains lay in a very handsome cloth-covered metallic casket. - There were but two floral pieces, but both were very handsome, and were the last tribute of respect from true friends. One was the familiar "Gates Ajar;" the other a large standing cross, with the emblem "At Rest." - The following gentlemen acted as pall-bearers: William Walsh, Louis Conrath, D. P. Donahoe, C. C. Slattery, T. J. Sherwood and P. J. Flannery. - At the conclusion of the services in the church the cortege moved to the Catholic Cemetery, where the last prayer was said by Father Hynes, after which the interment took place in the family plot.

Kelly and Martin Nealon Were Named as Executors-Directions For Payment of Bequests - The will of the late Thomas Casey, which is dated September 25, 1886, will be filed for probate today by Attorney W. H. Carlin. - There is a codicil attached to the will dated June 26, 1901, in which he appoints W. F. Kelly and Martin Nealon as his executors and the trustees of the trust therein created, and orders that they act and serve without giving any bonds. - The witnesses to the will which was made over fifteen years ago are E. A. Davis, residing at Marysville, and M. C. Dufficy, residing at San Rafael. - By the will he gives, devises and bequeaths to his executors and trustees all his property real and personal, wheresoever situated, and all moneys that he may die possessed of, in trust for the purposes and uses named. - After directing that the executors shall pay his funeral expenses; the expenses of his last illness; all other expenses incident to his last illness and burial, and all his debts, he directs that out of the balance of said trust property the executors shall pay the following sums: - The Bequests - To his brother, Martin E. Casey, the sum of $2000. - To his brother, Patrick Casey, the sum of $2000, in installments of $100, payable every six months after his death. It is provided further, however, that the executors may pay him larger installments at any of said times should they themselves deem that his necessities require it. - To his sister, whose name is Annie Maher (unless she has again married), the sum of $2000, in installments of $500, payable yearly after his death. His sister resides, according to his information, at Grantville, State of Nevada. - To Theresa Maher, daughter of the above-named sister, the sum of $2000, when she shall have arrived at the age of 25 years. - To Thomas F. Maher, a son of the said sister, the sum of $100. - To John Nealon, son of his deceased sister, Mary Nealon, of San Francisco, the sum of $100. - To Thomas Nealon, of Colusa, also a son of said deceased sister, the sum of $100. - To Anthony Nealon, also a son of said deceased sister, the sum of $2000, payable when he shall have arrived at the age of 25 years. - To Martin Nealon, also a son of said deceased sister, the sum of $2000, payable when he shall have arrived at the age of 25 years. - To Mrs. Mary McCormack, formerly Mary Nealon, and daughter of his deceased sister, the sum of $500, in installments of $100, payable yearly after his death. In case of her death before the said payments are completed, any portion of said sum remaining unpaid shall be paid to her son now living. - Should Patrick Casey die before the said payments to him are completed the will directs that any balance remaining unpaid shall be paid to Martin M. Casey and Annie Maher, in equal portions, in the manner provided. - Should Anthony Nealon or Martin Nealon die before the said payments to them, or either of them, are completed, the will directs that any balance remaining unpaid of such deceased one shall be paid to his issue, if any, and in the absence of any living issue, the same shall be paid in equal portions to Martin E. Casey, Annie Maher, Theresa Maher and Mary McCormack, or her said son, if she be not living, or to such of them as shall be living. - Whenever all of the foregoing payments shall have been made in full or shall have been fully provided for, the will directs that all the balance and remainder of said trust property, real and personal, shall be paid over and delivered to the said Martin E. Casey, if he is living; but in case he be dead, the will directs that the same be paid over and delivered to Annie Maher, Patrick Casey, Theresa Maher, Mary McCormack, Anthony Nealon and Martin Nealon in equal shares or portions. - Whenever any of the said sums of money above directed to be paid, shall be due and payable as specified, if there shall not then be in the hands of said trustees the necessary funds for making such payments, it shall be optional with them to sell any of the said property for the purpose of raising such funds, or to defer such payment to such time as convenience or interest may require. - Under the will Mr. Casey had appointed his brother, Martin E. Casey, John H. Jewett and A. C. Bingham as his executors without bonds, but last June he added a codicil appointing his friend W. F. Kelly, and his nephew, Martin Nealon, to act as executors. - As already announced in The Appeal, the deceased had deeded his valley ranch and his foothill cattle range to his nephew, Martin Nealon, with the exception of a small portion in which his brother, Martin E. Casey, will have a life interest. He also deeded to his niece, Mrs. D. Carn (Theresa Maher), his property in Oakland. - The bequests will probably be paid out of his city property, as it is understood the deceased had not much money on hand, and not many mortgages.

Marysville Appeal - 1/5/1902, p4 - Died Last Evening - Printer John Chenoweth Will Be Laid to Eternal Rest This Afternoon - At the County Hospital yesterday evening about 5:30 o'clock, John Chenoweth, a well-known printer, passed from a bed of suffering to eternal peace and rest. - Mr. Chenoweth, who had resided in Marysville temporarily upon two previous occasions, came to this city again in the early part of last July and remained here from that time on, working a greater portion of the time in The Appeal composing rooms. When there was nothing for him to do at the case, he worked at odd jobs about. It was while engaged in labor of this kind on November 23d last that he met with the accident which sent him to the Hospital and which ended in his death last evening. - Mr. Chenoweth was 48 years of age. He was born at The Dalles, Oregon, and married in that State about twenty-one years ago. In 1888 he came to California and since then has worked on papers in many towns, residing most of the time, however, in Fresno, Stockton and San Francisco. - The deceased leaves a wife and seven children, all but one of whom are at present in this city. A son has been employed at the woolen mill for several months and expects to continue his residence here. The rest of the family will return to Oregon to reside. - Mr. Chenoweth was a good comrade and citizen. No task was ever given him that he did not faithfully try to perform.

Daily Appeal – 03/15/1876, p. 3 – THAT MURDERED CHINAMAN – We stated yesterday that a Chinaman had been murdered near the Union Flour Mills, on Bear river, and that Coroner Barnes would go there on Tuesday and hold a Coroner’s inquest. Mr. Barnes took yesterday morning’s express train for Wheatland, and from that town went to the Union Mills in a private conveyance. On arriving on the ground where the dead Chinaman was found, he was unable to find any reliable testimony about the matter. Kotch Chow, a Chinaman supposed to be about 30 years of age, was found dead on Monday morning, about a mile below Stoddard & Bros’ mills, and near the mouth of Rock Creek, and no one in that vicinity knew anything about the man or the murder. A scar on the face gave the impression that he had been knocked down, and while prostrate his throat was cut by a knife which entered below the right jaw, and passed through the neck, the point ranging upward and coming out under the left ear. The only information obtained about the murdered man was given by a Chinaman in the employ of the Stoddards, who said that the deceased was a friend of his, and was charged by Chinamen at Timbuctoo with being engaged in kidnapping a Chinese woman from that town, and that he might have been murdered for his connection in that matter. Coroner Barnes concluded not to hold an inquest as it would only result in an expense to the county. The body was therefore placed in a pauper’s coffin and buried near where it was found.

Marysville Appeal - 5/13/1905 - Captain Colford Passes Away - Just before "The Appeal" went to press this morning, word was received that Captain John Colford passed away at twenty-five minutes after one o'clock. Owing to the lateness of the hour it is impossible to give full particulars and details of his life, but it is known that he was born in Boston, Massachusetts, 67 years ago. He was the father of John, William, George, Louis and Charles Colford, and Mrs. Louis Brown. - Owing to sickness in the family the remains have been removed to the undertaking parlors of J. K. Kelly. - Funeral notice hereafter.
Marysville Appeal - 5/14/1905, p1 - A Good Man Has Gone Beyond - The Life of Captain John Colford Was One of Untiring Industry - Captain John Colford, a short account of whose death appeared in yesterday's "Appeal", was a veteran of the Civil War, and one of the most highly respected residents of Marysville. The angel of death came just ten days after his beloved wife was taken away from him and his demise was directly due to pneumonia which he contracted shortly after the death of his wife. The Captain and Mrs. Colford had spent many happy years of married life, and when his wife passed away on May 3rd, the old gentleman could not be consoled, but little did he know that in so short a time he would follow her to the spirit land. - John Colford was born in Boston, Mass., sixty-seven years ago, and his long life was an eventful one. While a young man he enlisted in the Navy of the United States and during the memorable Civil War he served under Farragut on the Neipsic. He took part in the battles of New Orleans and many other great struggles upon the water. He served during the entire war with great credit to himself and to the flag under which he battled. - Soon after the close of hostilities John Colford came to California to seek his fortune in the great west. Being an ambitious and industrious man he had no trouble in finding work and was always busy. Having settled in Marysville he built up a reputation as being an honest, straightforward man and he was much respected by all who knew him. - In July, 1872, he was appointed to a position on the police force of the city, and for about sixteen years served the city very capably. He was brave and his reputation spread until the undesirable element learned that he was a man to avoid. In the running down of criminals he was unusually active and during the time he was on the force made many good captures. - At the end of the sixteen years of faithful service as a policeman he was called upon to take another and even more responsible position, in which he was again serving the city. This time was as Chief of the Fire Department. For three years he held this position, at the end of which time he terminated his connection with the city by sending in his resignation. - Since that time, in 1891, he has acted as a special policeman and night guard in the Chinese quarters of the city. He has been a most faithful and efficient officer and was on duty almost every night from the time he took up the work until the fatal disease laid hold on his sturdy figure. - He was presiding officer of the Knights of Honor, and was a charter member of that order in Marysville. It is reported that the lodge in this city may disband, for the loss of John Colford has reduced the number of members until it is difficult to get enough to hold the offices. - In the passing of John Colford the city has lost a good citizen and a faithful officer. He was among the most widely known residents of Marysville. The members of "The Appeal" force will miss his always welcome face, as he used to walk in each morning just as the forms were being placed on the press. He was a very entertaining talker, and his wide experience and his travels had taken him to many lands, and he was perfectly familiar with China, India and many other foreign countries. Being an observant man he saw many things, and he remembered them for years, and "The Appeal" force has many times listened with the greatest pleasure to his accounts. - He leaves to mourn his death, five sons and one daughter; John, William, George, Charles, and Louis Colford and Mrs. Louis Brown. - The funeral will be held Monday morning. The cortege will leave the undertaking parlors of J. K. Kelly at 9:30 o'clock, and a requiem mass will be said at St. Joseph's church at 10 o'clock, and the interment will take place in the Catholic cemetery. The same gentlemen who acted as pallbearers at the funeral of Mrs. Colford will act tomorrow.

CONGDON, C. A.
Daily Appeal - 7/20/1910, p1 - Engineer Died Like A Hero - The last act of Engineer C. A. Congdon, killed in Monday's wreck of the Southern Pacific Oregon Express No. 15 at the Feather river bridge near Marysville, was to set the brakes of his train so hard that none of the coaches followed the engine as it hurtled from the trestle to the river bed far below, pinning the ill-fated engineer under the wreckage and scalding him to death. - This presence of mind and heroic conduct of Engineer Congdon probably saved the lives of hundreds of his passengers who, but for his prompt action would have followed the engineer to his horrible doom. Over 500 people were riding in the express at the time the wreck occurred. Scores of these fortunate tourists owe their lives to the steady hand of the man who, while toppling to his death, still kept his head clear and his nerves firm. - The clamped brakes of the coaches and the grinding rails where the clutched wheels dragged to a stand give mute testimony of the engineer's heroism and iron nerve.

CONWELL, H. A.
Marysville Appeal - 4/6/1913, p1 - H. A. Conwell Passes Onward - Pioneer of Yuba County Succumbs to Complication of Diseases - H. A. Cornwell, one of the pioneers of Yuba county, died at his home at Brownsville yesterday evening following an illness that lasted several days. About a week and a half ago Dr. Powell was called to attend the deceased and at that time there seemed little possible hope of recovery. Mr. Conwell was suffering from a complication of diseases, including heart trouble and kidney trouble. The physician did what he could to make his patient comfortable, but held out little hope to the anxious relatives. - The arrangements for the funeral have not been made at this writing. The interment will more than likely be made at Brownsville, where the deceased has made his home for more than forty years. - To mourn their loss there are left a widow and one daughter, Mrs. Ernest Wilbur of Yuba City. - H. A. Conwell was a native of Delaware, eighty-one years of age. While still a young man he was fired with an ambition to come to California and make fame and fortune. He joined the pioneers of that period and landed in California with an ambition to succeed as one of his strongest assets. Something over forty years ago he went to Brownsville and established himself in business. He stood by the famous old camp through thick and thin to the day of his death, always having confidence that it had a bright future. He was a man of splendid attainments and of irreproachable character. He was affable in the extreme and there are many throughout the county who will mourn his death.

Marysville Semi Weekly Appeal – 7/10/1905, Pg. 6 – Charles Corbierre Dead – The news of the death of Mr. Charles Corbierre at Clipper Mills yesterday afternoon was a surprise to all his friends and relatives. He was working about his little home near Clipper yesterday forenoon, and at half-past one was found dead. As nearly as Mrs. G. W. Braden, his daughter, could learn by telephone, his death occurred by bleeding, occasioned by the bursting of a blood vessel. The deceased had long had a sore on one leg and treated this with a preparation of sugar of lead. It is believed that this medicine had eaten through so as to cut off a vein and death resulted from inability to stop the bleeding. Mr. Corbierre had evidently been preparing to dress the sore, as he had the medicine and bandages laid out. When the bleeding began he got up and walked about the room, evidently hunting for something to stop the bleeding: at an y rate, there was blood in various parts of the room where he had walked after the blood vessel burst. He then evidently came back to the door, and here fell dead. As soon as he was found, which must have been very soon after his death, a dispatch was sent by Mr. Schultz to G. W. Braden, and soon afterwards C. S. Topping started for Clipper Mills to take care of the body and to bring it to Oroville, where arrangements will be made for burial. ( From Thursday’s Register ) (B.

Marysville Daily Democrat - Mon 8/14/1893, p1 - An Old Pioneer Missing - Believed to Have Succumbed From Exhaustion or Fallen Into the River - Search Parties - John Cosgrove, 65 years old, and recently an inmate of the Yuba County Hospital, is missing, and believed by many to be dead in some ravine or cut in the foothills between this city and Smartsville. - The old man left Smartsville on Saturday, the 5th instant, stating that he would walk to the ranch of an old friend "Fussy" Gallagher. He was in a semi-demented condition at the time, but as he had often before taken such tramps no one paid much heed to the sudden change he had decided on when he concluded to leave his Timbuctoo cabin. He has not been seen since the above named date, so far as can be learned (and careful inquiry has been made), by anyone. - On the evening of the day mentioned Dr. G. W. Stratton, Dr. Melton, Dr. Phelps and A. P. Lipp were returning from an expedition to Bowman's Dam and when nearing the Newbert place, on the Smartsville road, their attention was drawn to an aged man trudging his way toward this city. When he noticed their approach the old man acted queerly and turned off the road. - Dr. Stratton mentioned to his companions that the aged traveler somewhat resembled his former county charge, John Cosgrove. The doctor gave the little incident no further thought until yesterday morning when he received a telegram from Thomas Conlin, of Smartsville, which ran as follows: - Smartsville, August 13, 1893. John Cosgrove left here on Saturday, the 5th instant. If he has not reached you by this time he has perished. - Thomas Conlin - Search parties were instituted by Smartsville young men yesterday and they scoured the foothills in every direction, returning last evening from a fruitless search. - Cosgrove was at one time a semi-millionaire, carrying on a large business in general merchandise at Timbuctoo. Reverses and poor speculation finally reduced him to want and of late years he has spent the major portion of his time in the county hospital. The ruins of his mining day establishment is yet to be seen near his cabin. The officers of this county should make some effort to locate Cosgrove dead or alive.

COURTNEY, H. J.
Marysville Daily Democrat - 5/25/1897, p1 - His Fatal Spree - A Farm Hand Falls From a Loft on The Cohn Place And Meets Instant Death - His Neck Was Broken - When Wm. Wedderin, manager of the J. G. Cohn farm, south of town, repaired to the barn at daylight this morning to feed his stock he was surprised to find the lifeless form of a man on the floor. On closely examining the remains he discovered that the man was H. J. Courtney, who, up to yesterday morning, was employed on the place. It was evident that Courtney had fallen from the loft during the night and broken his neck. The body was resting on the elbows and knees, face downward, showing that the unfortunate man died almost instantly on striking the floor. Coroner Bevan was notified and he has taken charge of the remains. An inquest will be held this evening. - Deceased went to work on the Cohn place about four months ago. He was quite steady until the week of the spring races, when he began drinking. Last Sunday he was on a spree and on returning to the farm yesterday morning declared that he wanted to quit work. Eight dollars that was coming to him was paid over and he started for town. Last evening at 7 o'clock he again made his appearance on the place to bid Mr. Wedderein and others good-bye, stating that he was going to leave for the north on the Oregon express. That was the last seen of him alive by the farm hands. - It is supposed that Courtney returned to the barn during the night, sought out the loft to take a sleep, lost his bearings and fell through an opening to the floor where his body was found. In his descent Courtney struck a wire which is stretched at the rear of the stalls to hang lanterns. This probably accounts for the peculiar crouched position in which the body was found. - Harry Smith, proprietor of the Reception Saloon, knew Courtney very well, deceased having worked for him in Sacramento fourteen years ago. He always heard him called Ed. St. Clair, but supposes that was the man's race-track name. Courtney followed the races many seasons, acting in the capacity of trainer about the stalls. To some he represented that he was a jockey and driver and confessed that he was at one time ruled off the track. Smith says Courtney left his saloon at 11 o'clock last night. He stated that he was going back to the farm. - Courtney was a native of Virginia and about 33 years of age. A brother, Claude Courtney, is a jockey at the Bay District track. He has been notified of the death. Deceased's father, mother and sisters reside at Richmond, Virginia. - A search of the body made at the morgue revealed $3 as the extent of the dead man's wealth on his person.

Her kind ways and uniform gentleness of disposition endeared her to every one. She leaves several children who, by her sudden demise, are left wholly orphaned. We deeply sympathize with her numerous friends.

Mrs. Covillaud emigrated to this State in the year 1845, and was one of the Donner party that suffered so terribly during the Winter of '45-46, in the neighborhood of the Donner Lake. She was the first white woman that ever set foot on the soil where Marysville stands, and our city was named in her honor. She emigrated from Missouri, and soon after her arrival in this country, married Charles Covillaud, one of the founders of this city. She was a woman of more than ordinary intellect, and possessed a kind, generous and noble disposition. All who knew her, loved her. She left a number of children and a sister, Mrs. Nye, to mourn her loss. Her funeral will take place to-day at 2 o'clock p.m. from her late residence.
San Francisco Bulletin – 9/30/1867 – Death of Mrs. Covillaud – Yesterday morning, says the Marysville Appeal of September 28th, Mrs. Mary Covillaud, widow of Charles Covillaud, deceased, died at her residence near this city, in the 36th year of her age. Mrs. Covillaud emigrated to this state in the year 1845, and was one of the Donner party that suffered so terribly during the winter of 1845-46, in the neighborhood of Donner Lake. She was the first white woman who ever set foot on the soil where Marysville stands, and our city was named in her honor. She immigrated from Missouri, and soon after her arrival in this country, married Charles Covillaud, one of the founders of this city. She was a woman of more than ordinary intellect, and possessed a kind, generous and noble disposition. All who knew her, loved her.

[Meriam had several other living relatives - two brothers and another sister (besides Harriet Nye), as well as nieces and cousins who survived her, although they are not mentioned in any of the above articles. It is also largely disputed that she was the first white woman to set foot on the soil of Marysville. Much misinformation surrounds the Murphy family, so please research credible sources. Also of note is that Meriam was first married to William Johnson, owner of the Johnson Rancho, upon her arrival to California. That marriage was dissolved, and her second marriage was to Charles Covillaud.]

CROSSMAN, LYMAN CHILDS
Daily Appeal - 7/15/1891, p2 - Died: In Brownsville, July 12th, Lyman Childs Crossman, M.D., a native of Wisconsin, aged 45 years.
Daily Appeal – 7/16/1891 – DOCTOR CROSSMAN’S SUICIDE – The Details as Obtained by an “Appeal” Correspondent. – The Causes Which Led to His Eccentricities Thought to Be Something Not Now Definitely Known of – The Funeral – Editor Appeal: -- The mystery surrounding the disappearance of Lyman Childs Crossman, M.D. is cleared so far as his recent history is concerned, but, that there was a deeper motive, than any we know, to prompt him to self-destruction is the prevailing opinion here. For some months the doctor has given evidence of trouble, by his demeanor, but nothing was thought of it beyond an eccentricity, until he left, unceremoniously , last May for a brief visit to Marysville, for the ostensible purpose of attending the Convention of Medico’s held in that city during the week of May 25th – June 1st. He continued that sojourn, bringing distress to a loving wife, by his prolonged absence. Inquiries were made as to his whereabouts and finally a surprise awaited all by his return in company with Judge Crane one Sunday night just at dusk. After his return he seemed a changed man, more eccentric than heretofore, and considerably less communicative. He resumed his practice and all seemed to be going well, when occasional fits of melancholy would seize him: then it was he would un-bosom himself to his wife after this wise: “Why did I go away that time and spend my money? Why didn’t I stay home and pay my debts? I have ruined your life as well as mine. I will give you everything and I will go away. I can go away and die; I am no more use to you or anybody else.” Friends called at his cosy little home and, on many occasion, dispelled the melancholy reverie of his, but latterly it proved unavailing. On July 4th, he left his home and was gone for four hours or more, during which time he was seen by a young lad to walk twice around the school house as if in quest of something. On Sunday morning July 5th, about 10:30 o’clock he was seen to leave his home with a bucket on one arm and a hand satchel under the other arm and walk up the road toward the school house. By some of the Sunday school girls he was seen to draw a bucket of water from the school house well. This was the last seen of him alive. His wife waited dinner for him, and supper also, but he did not return. Monday morning early, the alarm was given, and in a short time a score of men were traversing the woods in all directions in quest of the missing man. Every shaft, tunnel, ditch, water hole and cabin was examined, except the old Ruff cabin which had it’s doors locked and the searchers had a delicacy in breaking in as a man had recently occupied it and they thought he had barred the door. Hosts of searchers had been to that door and found it locked, contenting themselves with an examination of the premises no further than peering into the darkened room through a couple of small windows. The search was continued until Wednesday and Thursday’s rain drove the men to shelter. On Saturday morning however, Sylvester Kinnear, Sr., and John Nelson came down for the purpose of making a search of the woods with a hound. While sitting upon the fence near this Ruff cabin, deciding upon a plan, they heard a noise within the cabin as if something falling or knocking; it was repeated and they then started for the house, both taking around an opposite side. Mr. Kinnear came to the front door and finding it locked turned to get something to break it in, when he was called by Mr. Nelson to come around where he was. He did so and getting up to the window he thought he saw someone lying upon a lounge. He pulled away the wooden covering of the window there, sure enough, was the object of their search, cold in death. They came to town, spread the news, sent for Justice of the Peace Reynolds., the deputy Coroner, and by 1:30 p.m. the Coroner and jury were upon the spot. Contrary to expectation there was no odor from the body, and the room was soon full of persons, eager to catch one last glimpse of their deceased friend, and to view the surroundings. Everything about the room was arranged to a nicety. On an old frame bedstead two boards were laid for a shelf and upon theses were placed a small package of surgeon’s lint and cotton; two keen lances opened and ready for use; his spectacles and suspenders, they being actually rolled up, while under each was a sheet of paper, put there so as to keep them from dust. Near this bed was an old lounge, upon which the body lay; on the left hand side near the foot of it was the little hand satchel, while on the right-hand side and near the head was a bucket nearly a third full of water. Under the lounge was a glass two-thirds full of water setting upon an almanac leaf, and upon a little table near by was his hat and gold – bowed glasses. The door was bolted and the foot of the lounge was next to the door. Evidently careful preparations had been made for self-destruction, and a determination, seldom equaled, was manifest from the surrounding conditions. The Coroner viewed the remains as found, and without calling his jury together proceeded to search the body for valuables and evidence of self-destruction. Having removed everything from a portion of his pockets he began a cursory self-examination of the same, but was carefully watched by one of his jury, who had a curiosity to see and learn if possible any motive for the rash act, and what means were used “to shuffle off this mortal coil.” Next came the hand satchel for a cursory examination, but afterwards a more minute search by two of the jury. Though nothing was found whereby to attribute death, it was evident to the jury that he had designed to take his life, and did do it. In accordance with the circumstances surrounding the case, the jury felt it was doing it’s duty when it rendered the following verdict; “We, the jury, find that Dr. Lyman Childs Crossman came to his death by administration of a drug from his own hands, and with suicidal intent.” (Signed) Israel Hedge, W. H. Hanford, A. S. Packard, C. Start, S. A. Davis, C.F. Fors, James Gordon, - It has been erroneously stated heretofore in the Appeal that the discovery of the body was made by the odor rising from decomposition, but this is not so. The above facts are by one of those present, and no odor arose from the body until the body was disturbed, and but little then. There was no such putrefacation, or decomposition, as might have existed had the weather remained as excessively hot, as it was the previous week. The countenance was natural, and none could fail to recognize in the features of the deceased one other than Dr. Crossman. Just about the wrist could be noticed signs of mortification , but not on or about the face. For some reason the clothing was not removed from the body, and if any evidence of foul play existed the Coroner or jury were ignorant of it. There was no disarrangement of any article of clothing to lead to suspicion of foul play, and the knowledge before all made a post-mortem examination necessary. So it was that the body was handed over to the bereaved wife, who had the remains taken to Strawberry Valley, and interred in the family plot, where a father and brother lie. The funeral took place from the home of Mrs. Crossman’s mother at Strawberry Valley, Sunday morning at 9 o’clock, Rev. J. H. Jones officiating. Dask (B.S.)
