GEHRIG, MRS. J. M.
Marysville Daily Democrat - 5/28/1897, p1 - A Woman Killed - She Registered at a Hotel Last Wednesday And Was Found Dead Early This Morning - The Body Was Identified - [First line of article unreadable.] at the National Exchange Hotel in Nevada City under the name of Mrs. Frances Zeitler, without giving her place of residence. During yesterday she went out on the street and returned again, apparently being a representative of some firm or business. The proprietor of the hotel noticed that the woman did not eat at the hotel table yesterday and he thought she acted queerly, as she was not communicative as to her business or intentions. - At 10 o'clock last evening her room door was found open, but the woman was not in, nor did she return again during the night. At an early hour this morning when visiting the woodshed, back of the hotel, the dead body of the strange woman was found. A piece of a clothesline was tied to a rafter and the other end was around her neck, the body being cold, showing that death had resulted several hours before. The woman's feet were within a few inches of the ground and a fruit box was near by, all of which would indicate deliberate suicide. But when the body was taken down and an examination made, seven wounds were found on her person and her skull was fractured in four places. The physicians said that the woman could not have hanged herself after the wounds were inflicted, therefore, the officers concluded that a murder had been committed. - She was quite large and well formed in figure, her age being about 45 years, but there was nothing found among her effects by which to identify her. - Back of the hotel there was a gate which was locked during the night and on it are finger marks of blood. At another place a box was found against the fence and there were marks of blood on it and also on the fence, as if some person had climbed over from the inside, or had tried to do so. The officers are at work on the case and they hope to soon learn something of the strange woman and of the murder, of which there is little doubt in the minds of those familiar with the circumstances. - This afternoon the dead woman was recognized as the wife of J. M. Gehrig, a brewer of Nevada City. Mr. Gehrig says she left home Wednesday afternoon and he supposed she had gone visiting. Opinion is somewhat divided as to the cause of death, murder or suicide.

GENGLER, FRANK RAYMOND
Marysville Appeal - 12/3/1918, p5 - Frank Gengler Dies In France From Pneumonia - Frank Gengler, son of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Gengler, of this city, and nephew of Mayor Mat Arnoldy, is dead in France as a result of bronchial pneumonia, after escaping fatal injury and being gassed in two battles. - Gengler died October 12, according to word received by his parents from the war department last evening. In a letter to his parents in September, Gengler said he was in a hospital suffering from a recent gas attack, and a letter later in that month said he had been wounded September 6. - Gengler was employed by the Marysville Fuel Company and was a conscientious worker. Mayor Arnoldy said last night he never missed a man from his business so much as he missed his nephew. - No details were given regarding his death, but the mayor believes he must have insisted on being returned to his company for battle before he was strong, following the gas attack, as he was intensely patriotic. - Gengler was a member of Company E, 102nd Infantry, when he died, but had been with Company I, 161st Infantry.
Marysville Democrat - Mon 9/19/1921, p1 - Impressive Funeral Ceremonies For Victims Of The World War - Community Pays Respect As Bodies of Frank Gengler and William Norton Are Borne To Grave - Business in Marysville was practically suspended from 9 to 12 o'clock this forenoon while the funeral ceremonials of two veterans of the world war were being conducted. The streets of the city seemed unusually quiet for a Monday morning and all the air a solemn stillness held. The good people of this city were paying their last respects to the memories of Frank Gengler and William Norton, young men of this community who went overseas with the American services and died in France in the service of their country. - It seems but a few short days ago that both these young men were mere youths in Marysville. To their friends they were still only boys when their country called them to the colors. To parents they were yet children, as it were; and they seemed so full of life and vigor when the departed for the training camps. - It is scarce three years since they died. Today their remains were given high honors as befit a soldier and friends and relatives alike gathered around their coffins to mourn their passing. - When the boys departed for the training camps crowds cheered them at the depots as the trains pulled out. Many were the fond farewells and wishes given them to hearten them for the hardships of war. And many a mother's heart was saddened when she thought that her boy might not come back. And how gladly all welcomed the returning soldier and sailor when he came home after the closing of the war. - Today marks a different sort of welcome - the sadness of meeting the silent remains of one who has taken a long trail a-winding and from which journey he will never come back. - All those whose loved ones came back alive and well have much to be grateful for today and they do well to join in sympathy with those who have only fond memories to treasure in their hearts. - In his sermon Rev. Father Guerin who officiated at the services, touched upon the lives of the deceased boys and the fact that they made the supreme sacrifice in response to their country's call; not because their country was in danger but because Democracy should rule the world over. He also spoke of the boys who are now in hospitals, hopeless cripples. - The choir with Miss Celia Weber at the organ rendered appropriate music. - The funeral cortege following the body of Frank Gengler was the first to leave the church for the Catholic cemetery where the last rites were said and taps were sounded over his grave by the firing squad made up of American Legion members. - The interment of William Norton was made in the Yuba City cemetery where taps were sounded by the same firing squad. - The casketbearers for Gengler were Clarence Galligan, Elmer Booth, James Morrissey, John McDonald, Elmer Arnoldy and C. Ewton. Those for Norton were Harold Pyne, Abe Schneider, Louis Sieber, Donald McDonald, L. Clyyma and James Morrissey.
Marysville Appeal - Tue 9/20/1921, p1 - Gengler and Norton Laid to Rest - Funeral Services Impressive - City Pays Respects to Heroes - Amid settings impressive, solemn and poignantly expressive of the respect of the citizens of Marysville and surrounding communities, the bodies of Frank Gengler and William Norton, local men, who met their deaths in France as soldiers of the United States of American in the World War, were yesterday morning borne to their last resting places near the surroundings in which they grew to manhood. - At 9:30 o'clock the funeral cortege assembled at Kelly Bros.' chapel, where the bodies had been resting in state in an interior invested with all the beauty that the red, white and blue of America and trinkets held dear to the heart of the warrior for the peace of God and mankind could inspire. - The two hearses bearing the remains of the heroes were escorted to St. Joseph's Catholic church by a guard of honor, composed of ex-service men, under Commander Francis Hall of the Yuba-Sutter Post of the American Legion. - Solemn requiem mass was sung by Rev. Father Patrick Guerin, assisted by Father Murphy of Sacramento, Father McCarthy of Weaverville, and Father James Healy of the Marysville parish. The Catholic choir, with Miss Cecelia Weber as organist, rendered appropriate music. - The appearance of the caskets, draped in American flags, the banner under which Norton and Gengler bravely fought in the vanguard of the fighters for freedom of the world, was a sight that inspired all viewers with an appreciation of the sacrifice of the young men. - A general tribute to those who fought in the country's service was paid by Father Guerin in a fitting eulogy. He referred to the brave deeds performed on the battlefields, and spoke of those who made the supreme sacrifice in a light that was replete with understanding. - He praised the American Legion and its work in his sermon. That the government should make arrangements to care for men who had gone overseas and had returned disabled and in dire circumstances was his opinion, Father Guerin stated. - From St. Joseph's church the body of Gengler was taken to the Catholic cemetery, where it was interred. Norton was buried in the Yuba City cemetery. The Marysville school band marched in each procession. - Salutes were fired over each grave by squads of ex-service men. The final rites at Norton's grave were said by Coroner J. K. Kelly. - The bearers of Gengler's casket were Clarence Galligan, Elmer Booth, James Morrissey, John McDonald, Elmer Arnoldy and C. Ewton. Casket-bearers for Norton were Harold Payne, Abe Schneider, Louis Seiber, Donald McDonald, Leonard Clyma and James Morrissey. - Between the hours of 9 and 12 o'clock yesterday morning business houses in Marysville closed as a mark of respect to the memory of the two local boys and high school students were dismissed to attend the services. - The services throughout were marked by impressiveness and beauty. Kelly Bros. were the recipients of many commendations on the manner in which they directed the funerals. Their chapel, in which the bodies had lain since arrival here, was handsomely decked in greens, army rifles and flags (con't on page 4) [this page was not found to contain the completion of this article]

Gerst, former resident of Antioch, husband of Virginia Gerst, father of Evelyn Green and of Robert Green of Antioch; a native of Iowa, aged 36 years. Burial in Antioch at a date to be determined later.Pg. 9 TWO MEN DIE AND SIX ESCAPE DEATH IN SNOW Plumas Miners Are Led To Safety After Failure Of Tractor Two men are dead in different parts of the high Sierra and six others escaped death after a bitter four-day battle against blinding snow and bitter winds. The dead were: Arthur Gerst, 32, of Antioch, frozen to death Saturday near Strawberry Valley, Yuba County. A.R. Stramer, 49, of Healdsburg, also frozen after becoming exhausted while traveling without snowshoes through two feet of fresh snow in Mariposa County. Men Improvised Skis The story of the rescue of six miners was unfolded last night in Blairsden, Plumas County. They used every available device from a tractor to improvised barrel-stave skis in their fight to escape death in the snow. They were guided into Blairsden by two ski experts sent out to search for them Saturday. Caught In A Blizzard Those in the party, William Lee, Antone Costa, Lee Lumsden, Dave Mitchel, Pete Foley and Harold Fowler, were caught Wednesday in a blizzard. While they thawed out and ate their first meal since they were marooned by the storm, they told of their experience. Found Shelter They left the Ready Bullion Mine early Wednesday for Blairsden, twenty miles down the mountains, traveling on a snowmobile --- a tractor device used for traveling over snow. Before noon the storm howled upon them and piling drifts disabled the tractor. Without food, the men struggled through the snow, but were soon forced to take shelter in a deserted cabin at Mt. Elwell. Around the cabin the snow piled from four to ten feet deep. They remained there until Sunday morning, when they started out again on the skis made from barrel staves and boards. George and Ernest Jovich of Johnsville, who had been sent out to make the search, found them. Miner Lost Snowshoe The story of Gersts death was brought to Marysville by miners, who said he froze in a nine-foot snow bank a quarter of a mile from his cabin. It is believed he lost a snowshoe while making his way down a steep canyon from Slate Creek in Yuba County, where he had been mining. Dwellers in nearby cabins said they heard cries during the night, but mistook them for coyote yelps. They said Gerst must have floundered in the snow drift and was too exhausted to free himself. Stramer, who had been working at the Sweet Water Mine fourteen months, leaves a wife, Anna of Healdsburg. [According to the California Death Index, Arthur was 36 when he died.] (B. S.)

A young man named Giles was one of the wagon tenders; his team was loaded and started for the mill; he was going to attend the brake for a short distance; the wagon overturned and Giles attempted to make his escape out under the wagon, or out under the hind part of the log; his head came in contact with the crow-bar, which stunned him, (crow-bar sticks in the hind bunk of wagon). So that the overturning log and wagon were on him, the log striking him on the back dislocating his neck and literally breaking his back fro his shoulders to hips. Death was instant.

Daily Appeal 2/17/1891 Death of E. Goble From Accidental Injuries A Brownsville correspondent furnishes the following particulars of an accident which resulted fatally to a well-known pioneer of Yuba county: A sad and most deplorable accident which occurred on Monday, February 9th, threw a gloom over our community. E. Goble, one of our old and respected pioneer citizens, who, owing to his advanced years, and a stroke of paralysis which afflicted him a few years since has been of late in an enfeebled condition, while out on his ranch endeavoring to pass the time, by clearing up a little brush, attempted to light a fire, and while so doing it is supposed (very little can be positively known, as when found he was beyond speech), his clothing caught fire, and before, in his feeble state, he could extinguish the flames or give the alarm to others, he was fatally burned. Early in the morning his wife and daughter (Mrs. Dr. Crossman, of Brownsville), becoming uneasy at his delay, the latter started out to find him, and call him to lunch, when she met neighbors who had only a few moments previous to this found Mr. Goble, alas, to late to save his life or limit his sufferings. He died about an hour after being brought to his home, and was conscious, in a faint degree almost to the last. The shock to his family is a most severe and terrible one, and also to the whole vicinity, throughout which he had many friends, who will ever remember him as a man of sterling character, honest in all his dealings, a kind neighbor and a good citizen. He came to California at an early day, and for nearly forty years resided in Strawberry Valley. He was a prominent Democrat, and some years since was the chosen one of his party for candidate of the Assembly only failing to win the election by one vote. His funeral took place on Wednesday at 11 a. m., and was attended by all his old townsmen, as well as by a large number of friends from miles distant. The pall-bearers numbered J. H. Drake, Y. L.

Marysville Daily Appeal - Tue 4/4/1911, p1 - Justus Greely Dies Sitting in His Chair - Justus Greely is dead. There was an expression of deep regret on all sides yesterday afternoon when the news of his sudden demise spread quickly throughout the city. He had been working in the garden and about the yard, and feeling fatigued sat down in a chair on the front porch of his home to rest, where he was found a few moments later asleep in that eternal rest which knows no waking. Justus Greely had lived in Marysville so long that he was known by all the people. His familiar face and kindly greeting will be missed. There may be other men just as good, but there was none better. He was active in developing the resources of this section and classed among the ablest and intelligent men. - Mr. Greely was born March 12, 1830, in Waldo county, Maine. After receiving a practical common school education he remained with his parents until he attained his majority. It was about this time that the wonderful story of the discovery of gold in California set the tide of immigration westward, and he was with those who came via the Isthmus of Panama. He spent his first two months at what was then known as Rose Bar, in this county. - From Rose Bar he went to Calaveras county, where for six months he mined with considerable success. He then returned to Yuba county, where he resided for three years. In 1855 he returned to his native state, where he married and brought his wife to California. He then located at Galena Hill, establishing a trading post under the firm name of Rideout & Co. - In 1860 Mr. Greely went east with his wife for a visit, and for nine years thereafter resided in New England. Preferring, however, the sunny climate of this state, he returned to the Pacific coast in 1869 and at once settled in Marysville. He bought an interest in the Buckley [Buckeye] flour mills, which were established in 1853, and for many years thereafter was connected with that institution as part owner and manager. - Mr. Greely's wife's maiden name was Margaret Rideout. - Two children were born of this union, Frederick H., the present county auditor and recorder, and Margaret, the wife of Dr. David Powell. Both of them reside in Marysville. He leaves five grandchildren, Mrs. Jackson Waste, Justus Greely, Donald Greely and Jeanette and Margaret Powell. Deceased was a devout churchman and a pillar of the M. E. church. - No arrangements as yet have been announced as to the funeral services. Kelly Bros. have charge of the arrangements.

Marysville Daily Appeal - Tue 5/20/1913, p1 - Two Men Come Near Being Electrocuted - Justus Greely Is Burned To A Crisp - Accident Happens at Sub-Station of P.G. & E. Co. at Midnight - Owing to lack of experience about their work, Justus Greely was horribly burned and his helper, Elton Jones, suffered minor injuries at a few minutes past 12 o'clock this morning while employed at substation 4. With his clothes partly burned off him and his chest, arms and face a frightful mass of burns and blisters, Greely was taken to the hospital by Dr. Kaufman. Jones was given medical attention later, but owing to the fright did not realize at first that he had suffered at all. - Just how the accident happened no one knows. The two men were up on a platform reading a meter when suddenly a blinding flash flared out and hit them. Both were knocked unconscious. When Jones came too [sic] he ran down the ladder and turning about saw his fellow workman lying flat on his back and just regaining consciousness. Word of the accident was telephoned to the police station and Officers Smith and Blue summoned Dr. Kaufman. - Upon arriving at the station, Greely could be seen sitting on the platform, about ten feet high, speechless from agony and unable to move. He kept making gestures for those below to aid him, but no competent man being in charge of the plant, it was feared that the platform was charged. When Officers Blue and Smith arrived an endeavor was made to get some employe to shut off the juice, but none understood its workings. - Blue then volunteered to take a chance and scaled the ladder and carried the injured man down. Greely's shirt was burned away and his entire breast and right arm was cooked. His face was all blistered and over the right eye the flesh was literally baked. His condition was pitiful, but despite his sufferings he endeavored to keep from showing his agony. - Jones was unable to explain how they had come to be injured. He had just commenced to work for the company last night and was unaccustomed to any of the machinery. As far as he could state, no connection was made with the machinery by any of them. None of the employes who rushed to the spot could give any explanation as to how the accident could have occurred. - Lights Went Out - As the accident occurred the lights all over Marysville flickered red for an instant and then went out, but came on again immediately. - Brave Work of Blue - Officer Blue, while in his performance of duty, displayed bravery that is commendable and deserving of praise. Not knowing whether the same fate awaited him as that of Greely, he scaled the ladder to render aid and saved Greely from such suffering.
Marysville Evening Democrat - Tue 5/20/1913, p1 - Electrical Workers Burned in Substation Four - Without a moment's notice or a chance to escape Justus Greely, son of County Recorder F. H. Greely, and Elton Jones, employes of the Pacific Gas and Electric company, were caught in a blinding flash of electricity while engaged at work in substation No. 4 in this city shortly after midnight Monday, resulting in the former being seriously burned about the face and body and the latter being blistered considerably. Greely was so seriously burned by the flames that his features were unrecognizable after the accident and for a time it was feared that the burns might prove fatal. It was reported today, however, that the victim, who was taken to a hospital after the accident, was in no particular danger and that the wounds would heal in due course of time. Jones, whose home is in San Jose, was only slightly burned compared to Greely, and will suffer no serious consequences. He commenced working for the company only yesterday. - The two men were working together in the plant when the accident occurred. At the time the flames suddenly burst out upon them they were reading a meter, to which access was gained by climbing a ladder. The flames, as though from an explosion of gasoline, enveloped both the workmen and rendered them unconscious for a short time. Jones was able to descend the platform, but Greely suffered so extensively from his wounds that it was found necessary to carry him down the ladder, a task undertaken by Police Officer Henry Blue, who was one of the first to be notified of the accident. - The plant being in charge of a number of inexperienced men, it was thought that the platform might be charged with electricity after the accident and for a time no one dared to mount the ladder and remove the victim. Of the several employes about the station no one could give a reason for the flames bursting out without any apparent cause. - It is said, however, that short circuiting of the power wires, even though several miles away from the generating plant, would cause such an occurrence as the one of last night. A small wire coming into contact with the power line even for an instant might effect the machinery in the substation and cause the disturbance. - The injured men were treated by Dr. Kaufman, who was summoned to the plant after the police had been notified.
Marysville Daily Appeal - Wed 5/21/1913, p1 - Justus Greely Will Recover - Officials and Employees Know No Cause for the Accident - The condition of Justus Greely who was severely burned at the Pacific gas and electric substation at a few minutes past 12 o'clock Tuesday morning, was improved yesterday and the attending physicians stated that his injuries, while very painful, would not be serious. Elton Jones, the other workman who was burned, will not be scarred from the accident, his burns being superficial. - Neither of the two men nor the company officials are able to fully explain how the accident occurred. Superintendent Johnson stated last evening that he was unprepared to say what produced the sudden flash, but in all probability one of the two employes caused a short circuit by dropping something between the wires. Nothing about the spot where the short circuit occurred would indicate the cause. - According to statements from those connected with the plant, the two men had just gone on work a few minutes before they were injured. It is presumed that Greely started to explain the workings of some part of the machinery to Jones, and being inexperienced made a connection.
Marysville Daily Appeal - Sat. 5/24/1913, p1 - Justus Greely Succumbs To Injuries - Death at Rideout Hospital Last Evening Was Not Unexpected - Deceased Was Well Known, Having Been Born and Reared Here - As a result of burns received while at work in the Pacific gas and electric substation last Tuesday night, Justus Greely died suddenly at the Rideout hospital last evening at 6 o'clock. It was known that the young man had very slight chances for recovery, but death was not looked for so sudden. A convulsion came on him just before he passed away, so rapidly that his relatives had hardly time to be summoned. - Justus Greely and a fellow workman were severely injured while performing their work, but the former suffered the most. He was immediately taken to the hospital and for about a day, hopes were held out by his friends that the burns would not prove fatal, but he was handicapped by having a weak heart. The attending physician did everything to strengthen him to meet the struggle it would be necessary to make, but his constitution would not respond. - The burns which covered his chest and arms were not fatally deep at first, but by yesterday the ones on his arms had greatly increased in depth. Burns received from such electric shocks have a tendency of spreading. - The deceased was a Marysville boy, having been born and reared in this city. He was thirty-one years old, being born November 28, 1881. His father is F. H. Greely, recorder of Yuba county, one of the best known residents of this part of the state. - He is survived by his wife, Eva, and two step-children; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. F. H. Greely; a brother, Donald; a sister, Mrs. John Waste; an aunt, Mrs. D. Powell, all of Marysville. The body is at Kelly brothers, but no arrangements for the funeral will be made until today.
Marysville Evening Democrat - Sat 5/24/1913, p1 - Justus Greely Died Of Injuries Received In Sub-station - After suffering intensely since early Wednesday morning, Justus Greely, who was horribly burned by electricity at the sub-station of the Pacific gas and Electric company in this city, succumbed to his injuries in the Rideout hospital about 6 o'clock Friday night. Despite the fact that his flesh was virtually cooked as a result of the accident at the electrical plant, and his heart affected by the severe burns he received, Greely showed recuperative powers and for a time it was believed that he would be able to survive. Friday morning it was reported that he showed signs of improvement and the physician in attendance was encouraged in the hope that the victim might live, but yesterday afternoon shortly before death occurred the young man was taken with a convulsion, which indicated that the end was near, and relatives were summoned to his bedside. - The deceased, who was the eldest son of County Auditor F. H. Greely and wife, was 31 years old. He was born in this city November 28, 1881, and spent the greater portion of his life in Marysville. He is survived by a wife, Mrs. Eva Greely, to whom he was married only a few years ago, and two small step-children, besides other relatives in this city, including his father and mother, a brother, Donald Greely, a sister, Mrs. Jack Waste, and an aunt, Mrs. David Powell. - The accident that resulted in the young man's death has never been fully explained, although it is the belief of relatives that it was caused by a short circuit of electric wires. Greely was working in the plant with a fellow employe named Jones when the wires suddenly flashed out and he was enveloped in a blinding blaze. In the position that the two men stood Greely's body protected Jones and the latter suffered only slight burns. The disturbance that caused the arc of electricity to form at the plant and result in the accident, it is said, was traceable to a short circuit more than anything else, and the theory that some one interfered with the power wires is accepted by relatives. - The funeral will be held Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the late residence of the deceased on A street, the religious services to be conducted by Rev. Thos. H. Nicholas, pastor of the Methodist church. The interment which will be made by Kelly Bros. in the city cemetery, will be private.

Some strychnine had been put away in an old teapot, of which fact he was not aware. In searching for a vessel to put some water in, he found the discarded teapot, and there was a small bottle in it containing a whitish powder. His curiosity led him to taste it. It was not until he was seized with violent pains and the poison had done its deadly work that he told his parents what had happened. A physician was hastily summoned, but it was too late, and death ended his sufferings. Mr. and Mrs. Groves have the sympathy of many friends in this city.

GUINAN, WILLIAM J.
Marysville Appeal - Tue 1/25/1921, p1,4 - Dr. W. J. Guinan City Physician Is Called By Death - Beloved Physician, True Friend Of Poor, Answers Last Call As Entire City Mourns Him - Dr. William J. Guinan, city health officer and county physician, veteran of the Spanish-American war, and beloved and respected by all who knew him, passed away at his home at 801 Fourth street, at 9 o'clock Sunday morning after a brief illness, pneumonia being the cause of his death. He has been in poor health since an attack of influenza two years ago, and his constitution was so weakened that while seemingly on the road to recovery, he could not rally from the effects of the last attack, and passed away, sincerely mourned by a large circle of devoted friends in all parts of the county. - Dr. Guinan - or "Bill," as he was affectionately known by hundreds - was born in Albany, N.Y., in 1874. He gained his boyhood education in the public schools of Albany, then graduated from the University of Vermont. Soon after his graduation he became an interne in the great Bellvue hospital in New York City, where he spent three years, and it was there he gained the medical knowledge that made him such a success as a physician. - Former Soldier - Dr. Guinan was a lieutenant in the medical corps of the New York National Guard when war with Spain was declared. He served during the war with a New York regiment, and while he did not get to Cuba, did more than his share in fighting typhoid fever in the southern camps. - After the war he moved to California and practiced in several cities, finally going to Smartville in 1913, and remaining there until 1917, when he started practicing in Marysville, although he had many patients here prior to that time. - The poor people of the city and county will sadly miss Dr. Guinan as in him they had a true friend, who never missed an opportunity of answering a call, and whose real charity will never be known, as he was reticent about his own good deeds. However, many poor knew him as a good friend, not only as a medical advisor, but in supplying food, bedding and medicine. Dr. Guinan did not make much money; he was treating too many free patients, but he leaves behind him hundreds of people who mourn his loss as they do that of a brother for he was ever their friend in the time of need. - Funeral Wednesday - He was a member of the Marysville Council, Knights of Columbus, and of the Moose lodge, being a past director of the latter lodge. - Besides his widow he is survived by a brother, Dr. John Whitehall Guinan, and a sister, Mrs. Murray Downs, both of New York City. - The funeral will be held from St. Joseph's Catholic church at 10 o'clock Wednesday morning, under the auspices of the Knights of Columbus. Interment will be made in the mausoleum at Yuba City. Kelly Bros. will have charge of the arrangements.
Marysville Daily Appeal - 2/13/1914, p1 - Gang Plow Inventor, Wm. Gummow, Dead - The following story, full of heart-interest and expressive of the vicissitudes of fickle fortune as she played with the pioneers of California, will be read with interest by many residents of Marysville: "San Jose, Feb. 11. - An old diary found among the effects of William Gummow, who died in Watsonville Monday almost a pauper, disclosed the fact that he invented the first gang plow ever used in the west and was engaged at Marysville with John Meyers in the manufacture of the implement. Gummow was temporarily absent from his shop when a traveling representative for a San Francisco manufacturing house induced Meyers to sell the invention for a small price. The manufacturing concern became enormously wealthy through the sale of the plow and Meyers and Gummow died penniless." - While William Gummow had been away from Marysville for many years prior to his death there are several persons among the older set of the city who remember him and who speak in the most kindly terms of his character and ability. He was a mechanic of considerable ingenuity and achievement, as his invention of the gang plow attests and he always contended that had he not been away from his blacksmith shop when the representative firm who made an immense fortune out of the invention appeared, it would never have gone out of Gummow's control. Gummow believed and knew all the time that he had a valuable discovery, one that would revolutionize the agricultural industry, and he told many of his friends at the time and many times since that he intended to expand his invention and secure funds to place it on the market. Had he succeeded in doing this he might have died a wealthy man instead of having passed to the other side leaving little of value but his good name to be remembered by. - The case of Gummow has many prototypes in this and other countries. It is seldom that inventors reap financial reward commensurate with the importance of the things they conceive and make possible for the betterment of mankind, and Gummow's is really no exception to the rule. However, in inventing the gang plow, he left behind him a monument that will perpetuate his genius in the generations to come when the names of those who profited by it are forgotten.
Daily Appeal 8/22/1878, Pg. 3 Fatal Mining Accident.---An accident happened on Monday morning at the Brush Creek mine, near Dan Coles Mountain House, which terminated fatally yesterday afternoon. Joseph Gundry, foreman of the mine, was at work in the shaft repairing it, and was knocked off his platform falling thirty five feet, crushing one foot badly and receiving internal injuries. The foot was first amputated, and subsequently the leg at the ankle. The body was removed last night to the residence of the deceased at Browns Valley, where the funeral will take place this forenoon. Deceased leaves a large family. (B. S.)
Daily Appeal 8/24/1878, Pg. 3 Death of Mr. Gundry.---We announced the death of Mr. Gundry on Thursday, but the Downieville Messenger has the following in relation to the sad affair: On Monday an accident happened in the Brush Creek mine, at the Mt. House which cost a man his life. The cage used in hoisting the ore became jammed in the guides by the swelling of the rock, and the underground foreman, by the name of Gundry, went to release it. While at work in the shaft underneath the cage, it suddenly started, and the man was precipitated to the bottom, a distance of thirty five feet. The cage went down with him, and caught one of his ankles, mashing it fearfully. Besides this he received a cut on the head and was otherwise bruised. Drs. Lefever and Jump were called and amputated the leg about six inches above the ankle, it being the only alternative. The man died on Wednesday morning. He was a large man, weighing nearly 200 pounds, about fifty years of age, and it is probable that he received several internal injuries. We understand that he leaves a large family of children to mourn his untimely death. (B. S.)
