Marysville Herald - Fri. 12/20/1850, p2 - Melancholy Accident - Mr. M. S. Ebright, of the house of Tay, Brooks & Co., was, on Wednesday morning, at about 10 o'clock, examining some German percussion caps, which are used as both charge and cap, and are quite powerful.  He placed one of them upon the counter of their store, and exploded it with an iron weight, when the discharge communicated with a large quantity of the caps, creating a terrible explosion, the report of which sounded like the report of an ordinary sized cannon.  Mr. Ebright was shockingly mangled, and portions of the poisonous caps were deposited in different parts of his person; many of these were extracted by the surgeons.  A young man who was a clerk in the establishment was injured considerably, but not dangerously, in the face. - Both Mr. Ebright and the young man were last evening much better, and we are happy to learn that Mr. E. is considered out of danger.

Marysville Herald - Fri. 1/10/1851, p2 - Death of Mr. Ebright - We have to-day to perform the mournful duty of announcing the death of our very worthy and much respected friend, Mr. Ebright, the accident to whom we published some time since.  He expired, after much suffering, on Monday last, at about midnight.  Mr. Ebright was a man universally liked in our community, where he had resided nearly ever since our town has been in existence.  In all the relations of life he was most exemplary, and his death leaves a void in our midst which will be long felt by devoted friends - friends who have become so by the contemplation of, and acquaintance with his many virtues as a man and a citizen.  The melancholy manner in which he was stricken down, in the prime of life, while it calls forth the tear of friendship, may serve as a lesson of the frail tenure by which we hold our earthly existence, and how unexpectedly we may be called away, to be seen no more of men. - In the appropriate column of this day's paper, will be found an obituary notice of Mr. Ebright, written by one of his many friends.

Marysville Herald - 1/10/1851, p3 - Died:  In this town on the 8th day of January, in consequence of injuries received by an explosion of German gun caps at the store of Tay, Brooks & Co., M. S. Ebright, formerly from Millesport, Ohio, late of the firm of Fall, Ebright & Co. of this place, aged 28 years.

Obituary Notice:  Death is at all times, and under all circumstances a subject of serious contemplation.  We see the aged and infirm, the helpless infant, the joyous youth, the man of prime, strong as the forest oak, wither beneath the touch of death's cold finger, and we shrink back shuddering even tho' his approach be slow and stately, and accompanied by all the ameliorating influences of home and kindred friends; but when the stout of heart and frame are suddenly, as by a flash of thought, stricken to earth with none but stranger hands to minister to his wants, a sadder gloom settles upon the brow of thought. - Such was the case of the subject of this notice.  He had not reached the prime of manhood.  Health, cherub health had set its seal upon a brow where Time had furrowed ne'er a wrinkle, and to human ken gave promise of many years of life, when the destroying angel came. - It is no unmeaning form of an obituary notice to say that the deceased was a man of sterling virtues, that, as a merchant, citizen, and neighbor, he enjoyed the confidence, respect and esteem of all who knew him, in an eminent degree.  His demise leaves a void in our midst that cannot easily be supplied. - To the bereaved and stricken widow, and deeply afflicted parent, we tender, in behalf of our fellow citizens, our sympathy and unfeigned condolence; let their grief be assuaged by the assurance that from first to last he received every care and attention that kindness could suggest; night and day his couch was surrounded by devoted friends; that eminent physicians were assiduous in their efforts; that everything man could do to save him, was done; but above all let them not forget in their darkening hours of deep distress that they "mourn not as those without hope."  He was perfectly resigned to the will of God; throughout his long and suffering prostration, maimed and wounded, with the light of day shut out, not a murmur or complaint escaped him; he bore all with meekness truly christian and a fortitude more than Roman.  L.W.R.

Marysville Daily Appeal - Sat 2/4/1911, p3 - Robert Eccleston, Pioneer, Is Dead - Word has been received in Marysville that news reached Oroville yesterday that Robert Eccleston, pioneer resident of Forbestown, dean of one of the best-known families in this state, pioneer of California's earliest days, and the last of the little company of Indian fighters who discovered the Yosemite valley, had died at his home in Oakland.  Death followed a general breakdown of the system and an illness of several weeks. - With the earliest westward immigration, Robert Eccleston crossed the plains to California.  He first came to Butte county and engaged in mining.  Afterward he took up the business of cattle-raising, establishing his home at Forbestown, where, in September, 1857, he married Miss Emily Josephine Young, who crossed the plains in 1852, at the age of 13 years. - Numerous diaries written in the clear script for which he was noted, and illustrated with admirable pencil drawings of country places and people of the early days, were kept by Eccleston and are treasured by his sons for historical worth, as well as for their fascinating reading. - The discovery of the Yosemite valley by the little company of Indian fighters who served with Major James D. Savage under the command of Captain Kirkpatrick, is recounted in one of the volumes of the diary, and vividly pictures the wonder with which the white men first gazed upon the splendor of the great valley when they chanced upon it in their pursuit of the savage red men. - With drawing and story, Eccleston told of the Indians, their ways of living, and the white men's battles and experience with the tribes.  He also told of Major Savage's remarkable family of twenty-six Indian wives.  Such chronicles and numerous poems and personal letters from early-day heroes and celebrities may be found entralling reading for many weeks. - In 1867 Eccleston returned to New York, then came back to the west and settled in Arizona, where for three years he was agent for the Pimo Indians and afterward was one of the builders of the tent city of Tombstone. - After fifteen years' residence there, Eccleston and his family moved to Oregon, where they lived until 1900, when they went to Oakland to make permanent residence there, and established a home on Rio Vista avenue. - Charter Member of Forbestown Lodge. - The deceased was a member of the Masonic order, being one of the charter members of the Forbestown lodge.  He was a devout member of the Methodist Episcopal church throughout his life.  He was an ardent republican and enthusiastic admirer of McKinley and Roosevelt, from both of whom he treasured personal letters and souvenirs of friendship. - The funeral will take place this afternoon at 2 o'clock from the late residence.  The services will be with only the immediate members of the family present and with Rev. Mr. Jaderquist, a personal friend, officiating.  Interment will be at Mountain View cemetery, where a brief service will be held at the grave and to which friends will be privileged to be present.  The four sons will bear their father to his last resting place. - The deceased was born on March 4, 1830.  He leaves to mourn his loss his wife, four sons and two daughters.  The children are J. Y. Eccleston, the banker, Rev. Edward Eccleston, C. H. Eccleston, and insurance and oil broker, all of Oakland; Louis Eccleston, of Fresno; Mrs. Nancy Slater, of New York, and Mrs. Sophia King, of Dublin, Ireland.

Marysville Daily Appeal - 2/17/1903 - With Military Honors, Capt. Alfred Everson Laid to Rest by Grand Army Veterans - The funeral of the late Capt. Alfred Everson who was found dead near the Oregon House, took place on Sunday afternoon under the auspices of Corinth Post, No. 80 G.A.R. - Rev. E. W. Johnson pastor of the Christian Church officiated at Undertaker J. K. Kelly's parlors.  The following members of the Post acted as pall-bearers:  Patrick Slattery, John P. Swift, A. W. Lewis and James Van Buskirk. - The last prayer was said by Rev. E. W. Johnson after which the interment took place in the G.A.R. plot at the city cemetery. - Everson was about 68 years old.  He had been living in a little cabin at Wood creek for the past five or six years and eeking out a bare existence with a prospector's rocker.  It is claimed by people in the neighborhood that many times he would not clean up over a $1 for a weeks work.  With this pinch of dust he would go to the store at Dobbins ranch and secure in exchange a handful of coarse provisions. - Last Tuesday he was returning to his cabin from one of these trips.  Enfeebled by age and privation he could not withstand a severe snowstorm that was raging, and he lay down under a manzanita bush on the hillside to perish.  By means of an old newspaper his relatives in the east were traced and an order was received here Saturday from the Merchant's National Bank of New York city to fulfill all the requirements of a respectable burial and assuring payment of the expense.  - The "Old Captain," as he was called was uncommunicative and during his residence in this section seldom mentioned any personal matters relating to himself. - It is now known however that he was very well connected and occupied the position of Commander of several vessels in the United States Navy at different times in his career.  He was much esteemed by all who knew him in this locality and it is thought that some disappointment drove him to seek the hermit's life he has been leading in the hills of Yuba county for the past few years.
