Marysville Appeal - 12/14/1894, p1 - End of a Busy Life - Something of a Pioneer Merchant - His Fluctuating Fortunes - At Eighty-Four He Was Amassing His Third Competency When the End Came - The remains of the late John C. Fall arrived from San Francisco on the Oregon express this morning. - The funeral services were held in San Francisco yesterday and the interment will take place in the family plot in the city cemetery to-day. - The deceased was a native of Virginia and 84 years of age.  He was married three times, but leaves only one child, the wife of ex-Governor Kincaid of Nevada.  His last wife is still alive.  Many of our pioneer citizens will no doubt attend the funeral as well as his friends. - The Examiner of yesterday had the following sketch of the deceased: - John C. Fall was born near Staunton, the county seat of Augusta county, Virginia, in 1810.  He was of German parentage, a large number of the settlers of the valley of Virginia being of German origin. At the age of 8 the family of Mr. Fall emigrated to Ohio, and young Fall made the journey from Staunton to Southern Ohio on horseback.  At an early age he began life as a clerk in a store.  He soon developed great talent for commerce, so much so that before he had reached his majority he was a partner in the largest mercantile house in the county of Lancaster.  While living in that county he formed acquaintances and friendships with its most prominent residents, among them the Ewings, the Shermans and the Hunters, all of whom have furnished distinguished members to the service of their country. - In the panic of 1848 Mr. Fall, with many others, was reduced to poverty, owing a large amount of indebtedness.  The discovery of gold in California attracted him to the Pacific Coast.  He first went into business in a small way at Sacramento, but before long established himself in Marysville.  The house of John C. Fall & Co., from 1849 to 1862, was the largest and most prominent mercantile concern in that section of the country.  After years of unexampled prosperity he returned to Ohio on a visit and paid his debts in full with interest, amounting to more than $50,000.  He returned to California and fortune seemed to smile upon him for many years, until he was again ruined by the great flood of 1861, which nearly destroyed the town of Marysville. - He determined to begin the world again in Nevada, and settled himself at Unionville, in the county of Humboldt.  He there began a mercantile business in a small way, which led to investing in mines, one of which, called the Arizona, subsequently became quite celebrated and produced, between 1864 and 1884, some $4,000,000 or $5,000,000.  At one time Mr. Fall had accumulated quite a large fortune, but the decline of mining and the depreciation of the value of silver, amounting to 40 per cent of the gross product of his mine, caused his ruin. - At the age of 76 he again started to accumulate another fortune.  He established himself at Wilcox, Ariz., where he met with moderate success. - Mr. Fall was married three times, his last wife being a sister of Colonel H. I. Thornton of this city.  He leaves but one surviving child, the wife of John H. Kinkead, ex-Governor of Nevada and of the territory of Alaska.  He was a member of the Society of Pioneers in good standing.

Marysville Daily Democrat - 5/28/1885, p3 - Another Suicide - Frank Faugest [sic], a native of Sweden, and a poultry raiser, was found dead in his house, near Slattery's slaughter house, this afternoon, having committed suicide by shooting.  Coroner Hopkins at once went out and brought in the body.  From Harry Bahrenburg, who accompanied him, we learn the following, which owing to the lateness of the hour we condense:  The body was found lying on the bed with a wound just above the nose and another over the stomach.  From the appearance of the body it is evident that Faugest made two attempts before he succeeded in killing himself.  It is probable that the wound in the side, which is only a superficial one, the shot having glanced off, is the first one.  It set his clothing on fire and the shirt and under shirt he had on is burnt to the neck.  Without stopping to put out his burning clothes he evidently reloaded the gun and putting the muzzle against his face, just between the eyes, fired the second shot.  That this was also a glancing shot is shown from the fact that the skull is not fractured and only the left side of the face was injured, the right eye being intact.  The weapon used was a double-barrel shot gun.  Dr. Harington [sic], who made a post mortem examination, tells us that the nasal artery and several smaller blood vessels were cut by the shot.  The small bones in the upper part of the nose were also crushed to atoms.  The wound made is about as big as a half-dollar.  The man evidently bled to death, and when he revived from the effects of the last shot, endeavored to load the gun again, as the blood of the room, and table on which were his shot pouch and powder flask are spattered with blood; but feeling faint from loss of blood he relinquished his purpose and laid himself down on the bed, still holding his gun, which he still held when found, breathed his last.  It is generally thought that he committed the deed this forenoon, indeed, some of his neighbors assert that they saw his face at his window this morning.  He was somewhat in debt and this coupled with bad luck has worried him a great deal of late, and in a fit of despondency he committed the rash act.  Henry Bahrenburg of this city was his intimate friend, and in a little account book found in the room was the following letter:  "Henry Bahrenburg, Marysville.  I leave you everything to settle, prove, etc.  The Chosen Friends pay all O.K.  I am indebted to Bro. Cumberson for about $35.  To J. K. Hare I owe to the amount of $10 to $20, his books will show.  I owe Peter Barry, saloon keeper, cash, $10, drinks, 25 cents, and Nicklaus Anderson I owe $10.  Write to Gozintras.  I owe Gust Aberg $10, and tool and hardware store for axe and wedges, I don't remember the amount $7 or $10.  I owe Mr. Slattery for 2 1/2 sacks of wheat.  Moon & Creighton, your neighbors, $10, at brewery, 60 cents.  I believe that is all  my indebtedness. - Henry you have been my only friend I have in this place as have done me any good, and I bless you for it.  Thank you, thousands of thanks for what you have done for me.  I have suffered thousands of deaths, and can't stand it no longer, so I have made up my mind to suffer no longer in this world.  I hope you will have my body buried.  Henry I hope you will take care of my poultry and dog.  Don't let the dog suffer as he has been a great help to save what poultry there is left.  My respects to Mrs. Bahrenburg.  Don't wonder at my rash act I have been suffering for years and can stand it no longer.  I am not crazy.  [signed] Frank Faugest." - Scattered through the book were other notes, some of them going to show that their author was not in his sound mind when he penciled them.  The inquest takes place to-night at Hopkins Bro's. undertaking rooms.

Marysville Daily Appeal - 5/29/1885, p3 - Tired of Life - The lifeless body of Frank Fargust [sic] was found in his house at the old Park place on P. C. Slattery's ranch, three miles north of town at noon yesterday.  At that hour John Slattery, an employee on the Slattery ranch went to the house, as was his custom when nearer that point than the slaughter house, to get his lunch.  Upon entering he found Fargust lying on the bed with a single barreled shotgun in his left hand.  A terrible wound was visible at the bridge of the nose and a large quantity of blood was on the floor just in front of the bed.  There was blood in various parts of the house, from the front porch to the kitchen.  A further examination of the body revealed a surface wound on the left side just below the ribs, and the woolen shirt which he wore had been on fire, but the fire had only smouldered and gone out.  From appearances of things he had evidently shot himself first in the face, producing the wound at the bridge of the nose, which only stunned him for a time.  He probably then arose and wandered about the house in a dazed condition, for a time, and then reloaded the weapon, laid down on the bed, and made an attempt to shoot himself in the side.  This failing, he probably bled to death where he laid.  There was blood marks on the powder flask where he had handled it after the first shot.  The Coroner was notified and the body brought to his office, where an inquest was held last evening.  Fargust had been in town the day before, but nothing unusual was observed in his actions.  He had procured a box of caps from his friend, Henry Bahrenberg, stating that he desired to shoot a skunk which was killing his chickens.  He was living alone at the place, having obtained permission from the proprietor, P. C. Slattery, to occupy it for the purpose of conducting the poultry business.  A few years since he acted in the capacity of assistant barkeeper for Bahrenberg and Vagadese and was very friendly and grateful to Mr. Bahrenberg.  When the Pioneer Lodge of Chosen Friends was organized at Yuba City he became a charter member and made Mr. Bahrenberg his beneficiary in the amount of $2,000.  In his pocket book was found a communication addressed to Henry Bahrenberg which reads as follows: - "Harry Barnberg, Marysville:  I leave everything to you to settle provided the Chosen Friends pay all O.K.  I am indebted to Bro. Cumberson for about $35, to J. K. Hare for groceries to the amount of $10 or $20, his books will show.  I owe Peter Barry, saloon keeper, cash $10, two drinks 25 cents.  Nicholas Anderson I owe $10.  (Write to Jo Zenters)  Gust Aberg I owe $10, and in the hardware store I owe $7 or $10 I don't remember the amount, and then I owe Mr. Slattery for two and one half sacks of wheat, Moon & Creighton, the shoemakers, your neighbors, $2; at the brewery, 60 cents.  I believe that is all of my indebtedness.  Henry you are the only friend I have in this place that has done me any good, and I bless and thank you a thousand times for all you have done for me.  I have suffered.  I have suffered a thousand deaths and can stand it no longer.  So I have made up my mind to suffer no longer in this world.  I hope you will have my body buried.  Henry, I hope you will take care of my poultry and my dog.  Do not let the dog suffer.  He has been a great help in saving the poultry.  My best respects to Mrs. Bahrenberg.  Don't wonder over my rash act.  I have been suffering for years.  I can stand it no longer.  I am not crazy.  (Signed) Frank Fargust. - I met in Marysville to-day a countryman from Dendahk from Eggalhoun and I hear that all my old friends at home are already gone home and waiting for Frank to come.  My gun is ready for the deed, and I say good bye to all.  If my prayers are heard I bless you all.  Chosen Friends, forgive me, for I can stand it no longer.  I cannot make a living like a tramp.  Mr. Slattery, I thank you. - In Dr. C. C. Harrington's testimony before the Coroner's jury, appears the following, relative to the nature of the wounds and the cause of death:  Gunshot wound, commencing at the outer angle of the left eye, carrying away a portion of the upper part of the left cheek bone and the bridge of the nose at its juncture with the forehead, causing a hemorrhage which resulted in death.  Also, a wound on the left side of the body just below the ribs.  That wound did not penetrate the cavity at all, but powder burnt the skin up to the collar-bone on the right side. - The Coroner's jury in their verdict found that the deceased was named Frank Fargust, a native of Sweden aged 54 years, and that he came to his death by hemorrhage caused by a gunshot wound inflicted by his own hands.  [Note by Kathy:  Frank was buried in the Bahrenberg plot at Marysville City Cemetery, with a non-military stone clearly saying: Frank Faugust, 12th Ills. Vols., Co. I - I can not find his records as yet in any databases for Civil War or any wars in which he would have been eligible to join.]  Original transcribed by Laura Tyler.

Marysville Appeal - Sun 4/12/1908, p1 - Edward W. Featherly Blows His Brains Out - Well Known Resident of Sutter County and Brother of M. T. Featherly of Marysville Commits Suicide In San Jose - Edward W. Featherly, brother of M. T. Featherly and Mrs. William Wagner of this city, committed suicide last evening in San Jose, where he had been for ten days visiting with his two sisters and a niece.  Featherly blew out his brains with a pistol ball while sitting on a bench in St. James park, brooding over the death of his wife, which occurred three years ago. - Featherly was staying with his niece, Mrs. Elmer Simonds.  He left her home at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon saying he would return by 5 o'clock for dinner.  He did not return and Mrs. Simonds became alarmed, as she knew her uncle's melancholy condition, and sent out after him. - Shortly after 7 o'clock Featherly entered St. James park and sat on a bench.  A few seconds thereafter he was seen to take a pistol from his pocket, place the muzzle to his head and fire.  After sending the bullet crashing through his brain he laid the smoking pistol on the bench beside him and then sank to the ground dead. - Several pedestrians in the park saw the suicide, but were unable to prevent it, Featherly acting too quick for them to interfere. The body was taken to the morgue and an inquest will be held tomorrow. - For the past thirty odd years Featherly had been employed on the farm of B. F. Walton, near Yuba City.  He left that place ten days ago and went to San Jose to spend a few weeks with his two sisters, Mrs. Ella Parkhurst of 601 Willows street, and Mrs. George Bennett of 177 North Fourteenth street, and his niece, Mrs. Simonds. - His brother, M. T. Featherly, of this city received a letter from one of his sisters yesterday morning stating that her brother was acting queerly and that he was melancholy and had been drinking considerably.  Mr. Featherly sent his brother $10 and the letter was probably in the San Jose postoffice when the unfortunate man killed himself. - Three years ago Featherly lost his wife and ever since that time he had not been himself.  He grieved continually and on several occasions wrote to his brother her and his sister, Mrs. William Wagner, telling them he intended to kill himself, saying that he did not want to live since his wife had been called away.  He never made an attempt, however, to commit suicide. - Mr. Featherly was born at Whitmore Lake, Michigan, in the year 1855.  He came to California in 1875 in company with his brother and sisters.  He returned east and was married in 1882 to Miss Margaret Trainor.  The wedding took place at his home town. - He leaves two brothers in Michigan, Mark and William Featherly, two sisters in San Jose, Mrs. Parkhurst and Mrs. Bennett, one sister, Mrs. William Wagner, and one brother, M. T. Featherly, both living in this city.  - He was a member of Enterprise lodge, No. 70, Free and Accepted Masons, of Yuba City, Royal Arch Chapter No. 13 of this city, and of Marysville Commandery Knights Templar.  He was an honorable, upright man, well known and highly respected by everybody with whom he was acquainted. - The death of his wife made him almost insane and he drank heavily from the day of the funeral. - M. T.

Daily Appeal – 9/04/1866 – Murder and Robbery – Camptonville, September 3d. Mr. W. K. Findlay was murdered this morning about 10 o’clock, while alone in his storeat Slate Range, near Camptonville by robbers. When found he was quite dead. His body was terribly cut and from all appearances there had been a fearful struggle. The whole country is being scoured in search of the murderers. They were unable to open the safe, consequently did not get much money.  (B. S.)

Daily Appeal – 9/08/1866 – Particulars of the Murder of Mr. Finlay – We find the following particulars  relating to the murder of Mr. Finlay, in the Downieville Messenger of September 8th: “ About 9 o’clock Monday morning, two men working under the bank in front of Mr. Finlay’s store, saw the door open and shut, but saw no one enter. Some little time after they heard a noise in the store above, and left their work and went up to the building, but found the door barred on the inside. This elicited their suspicions that all was not right, and they passed on to Mr. Finlay’s residence, a few yards distant and inquired for him of his housekeeper, and at the same time asked her if there were any arms in the house. She told them that Mr. Finlay was in the garden at the rear of the building, and gave them a pistol, with directions to find a rifle. While they were after the rifle, she had occasion to go into a back room, and while there saw a man jump from a back window of the store and make across the garden. She gave the alarm, but before either of the men got sight of him he had gone up the trail a few rods and disappeared in the brush. The men immediately proceeded to the store, and found the body of Mr. Finlay lying in the back room with eleven stabs and cuts on his person, almost any of which would have been mortal. One of the stabs was just behind the ear, the knife going entirely through the neck and coming out on the other side. One thumb was also nearly severed from the hand, and looked as though the murdered man had grasped the knife in endeavoring to ward off a blow. The other wounds were in the neck, chest and back. The probabilities are that the murderer went into the store and professed to wish to purchase a pair of boots, and when Mr. Finlay went to the back room to get them, he followed and stabbed him in the back of the neck, where a wound was found eight or ten inches deep. After committing the deed, the robber rifled the money drawer, in which he found some fourteen or fifteen dollars, but was unable to get into the safe, when hearing the noise made by the two men, he went to the back room, climbed on some boxes piled up before a window, kicked out the upper sash and jumped to the ground.

Appeal Democrat Monday October 25, 1948 pg 1 - Sutter Rancher Kills Self, Wife - Son Discovers Bodies of Pair On Sunday Visit - William T. Forderhase, 70-year-old Sutter county rancher and his wife, Elizabeth Webster Forderhase, 65, were found dead in the kitchen of the Sutter City home yesterday. Both had died of shotgun wounds which investigators are convinced were inflicted last Friday by Forderhase. Earl Forderhase of Yuba City, only son of the pioneer couple, discovered the tragedy when he went with his youngster, Billy to make a Sunday morning call at the comfortable Sutter City home where his parents had lived for many years. The slain pair had been well provided for financially. They were widely known. The elderly man, known to have been despondent because of his increasing ill -health, had first shot his wife and then turned the gun upon himself, according to Chief Deputy Sheriff Kenneth Hopper of Sutter County who with Deputy Earl Blackburn and Coroner B. W. Ullrey made an inquiry into the dual deaths. The murder-suicide is thought to have taken place shortly before noon on Friday. The house had evidently been carefully cleaned. Every room was in good order. Mrs. Forderhase had been making a list of groceries needed for the weekend. A partially written memorandum was found on the kitchen table. There was, however, no message left by Forderhase which might have shed any light upon the tragedy. In the living room, The Appeal Democrat of last murder-suicide was unfolded on a reading stand near a chair, but the Friday and Saturday issues of the paper were found lying unopened on the front porch of the home. Officers think that Forderhase after brooding over his condition, determined to end both his own and his wife's life. They had been known as a devoted couple. It is assumed that he loaded the single-shot 410 gun and entered the kitchen from the back door. As his wife turned towards him he apparently fired the gun pointblank at her. The charge struck her in the right temple and she crumpled to the floor. Her death is thought to have been instantaneous. Forderhase then ejected the empty shell which was found on the floor coolly reloaded the weapon and then using a stick of kindling wood to pull the trigger placed the barrel against his forehead and fired. He was found slumped inside the closed back door, the gun lying across his body. After many years of ranching, Forderhase had been custodian at the Sutter City cemetery for 20 years. In January he had to retire because of a series of heart attacks. Neighbors failed to hear any commotion Friday or the sound of the shots, according to Hopper. Coroner Ullrey said no inquest would be held in the double deaths. Forderhase was the son of the late W. H. Forderhase, Sutter county resident who brought the family from Missouri in 1888. He was born in that state May 1, 1878. His wife, a native of Ophir, Calif., was born July 2, 1883. She was a daughter of the late W. T. Tresize. The couple had married in 1904. Earl Forderhase, son, and three grandchildren Aileen, Janet and Billy of Yuba City; two brothers, Florenz of Marysville and Edward of Sutter City and a sister, Mrs. Emma Davis of Yuba City, are surviving relatives of Forderhase. Mrs. Forderhase left a sister, Mrs. Lucille Graham of Glendale. The funeral will be conducted at 2 pm Wednesday in the Ullrey chapel by Rev. John Swinford, pastor of the Sutter Community church, officiating. Interment will be made in the Sutter City cemetery. The tragedy was similar in nature to the deaths earlier this month of Dr. Tuttle and Mrs. Arthur Tuttle near Live Oak.  (Transcribed & submitted by April.)

He graduated from Oroville High and was a member of the block “O” society and a diligent defender of the Table Mountain “O”. He was drafted and served in the Pacific Theatre of World War II. He saw war with an intensity that few Americans have experienced. He was an expert shot and handled a browning machine gun. He received two purple hearts and a bronze star. A remarkable man with a zest for life, he studied law extensively and often went to bat for the underdog in legal matters. He believed that every citizen should know his Constitution and some basic rights, law and how to write a Habeas Corpus. A life long gambler, Stanley enjoyed betting on college games and was often seen with a Tuesday edition of “USA Today” under his arm. An avid poker player, with a keen sense of humor, one of his sayings was “It’s not how much you won or lost, it’s how you looked playing the game.” He enjoyed the mountains, and the back roads, chess, classic music and good people.

Daily California Express - 10/17/1862, p4 - Death of Capt. Frisbee - We see in the Placer Herald (Auburn), the death of our early friend, Captain Samuel J. Frisbee, at Michigan Bluffs, September 27th, from hemorrhage of the lungs.  Thus has passed away a good man, of the most generous feelings, truly a cosmopolite, one in whom there was no guile.  Captain Frisbee, in 1849, arrived in San Francisco from Pittsburg, Pa., where his father kept the old shipyard at the Point.  He brought out the steamer Urilda, in sections, and put her up where Donahue's great works are now in operation.  Then it was the sea-beach.  His enterprise was successful; so much so that the California Steam Navigation Company purchased for a large sum his interest in the trade on the Sacramento river, with the steamer also.  He then returned home to Pittsburg, put up another steamer for the Mississippi trade, in which he had been engaged prior to his coming to California; but on his return there the competition was so great that his finances sunk as rapidly as their accumulation had been here.  Leaving his son in command of the steamer, he returned to San Francisco to see about recommencing his old business, but found competition so rampant he sold out to the old company the right to put up the new boat, the material of which he had brought out, and re-shipped it for New Orleans.  Mr. Frisbee was full of business enterprises, being of an active temperament, yet not a worshipper of Mammon, as we have heard him tell a stranger just arrived from Pennsylvania, to go into business immediately, and he would let him have, without interest, from $500 to $5000 to start with.  He invested largely in Marysville at its early day, in which his interests were sacrificed during his absence.  Green be the sod above thee, good old friend! - Sonora Democrat.


Marysville Daily Appeal - 4/17/1888, p 3 - On last Sunday about 1 o'clock, a German laborer, known in this city as John FRITZ, where he was in the habit of coming, after accumulating a few dollars, to go on a spree, was drinking whisky at Klemp's resort on the Fifth street grade.  After some talk with the proprietor he started to cross the Feather river, stating that he proposed to walk to the Wilson ranch, where he had been engaged in cutting wood.  He had only gone a short distance on the uncovered portion of the bridge when the old straw hat which he wore blew off and fell into the water beneath, which backs up from the Feather river.  He walked over the bridge and accosted Dick Williams, whose assistance he requested to secure his hat.  Williams told him to get boatman Baker to row out and recover it.  He went back, stating that he was a swimmer, and would recover it himself.  The next seen of Fritz was by two men named Smith and Wallace, who saw him helplessly floundering in the water, and without any great haste they gave the alarm that a man was drowning.  In a short time a crowd had congregated on the banks below the bridge and meanwhile Fritz had sank.  Most of the drowned man's clothing was found on the bank. - Soon a boat and some grappling hooks were procured, with which the body was brought to the surface.  Coroner Hayes was at once notified and took charge of the remains.  Yesterday an inquest was held in which a verdict of death by accidental drowning was brought in. - The man's proper name was John Feitz.  He was a native of Germany, aged 42 years. - Through the kindness of Wesley Wilson, his former employer, the drowned man was given a respectable burial.
