JOHNSON, CHARLES KELSEY
Daily Appeal - Wed 6/28/1905, p1&4 - Charles Johnson Killed Yesterday - Collapse of Bridge Precipitates Men, Freight Wagons and Horses Into Deep Creek - A fatal accident occurred yesterday afternoon but a short distance from Camptonville, when the bridge over Willow Creek collapsed as a large freight wagon was crossing it, precipitating the entire outfit to the bed of the creek, killing Charles Kelsey Johnson and injuring Oscar Stroud, Tom Housh and A. C. Townsend. All of the injured men are doing well and will recover. Johnson was killed almost instantly. An inquest was held last evening, and the jury returned a verdict declaring death to have been entirely accidental and finding no one to blame for Johnson's death. - The team and wagons belonged to Simon Yore, who is doing a large amount of freighting in the mountains, and all of the men were employed by him. Stroud was driving the twelve-horse team and was sitting on the seat of the front wagon while the others were riding on the second wagon. The weight of the wagons and load probably amount to at least ten tons besides the weight of the horses. - The team was slowly wending its way along the road near the Ramm place and reached the bridge over Willow Creek at about 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon. - It was thought that the bridge was perfectly safe as heavy teams have been going over it for some time, and the heavy loaded wagons were driven upon the structure and reached about the middle when the bridge suddenly began to sink and in another moment both wagons with the men and horses were in the bottom of the creek. The entire bridge dropped down for a distance of twenty-five feet. It is thought that Johnson attempted to jump, and in so doing landed on the bridge under the heavy wagon for as soon as Stroud, Housh and Townsend picked themselves up after the catastrophe they found Johnson's remains pinned in between the timbers of the bridge, and the trucks of the wagon. Although injured themselves they went to work to get the body from its position in hopes that he was only unconscious and could be restored, but when they had dragged the mangled body from between the timbers and the trucks they saw that life was extinct. - Word was at once sent to Camptonville, and as many as possible hastened to the scene to render aid. Word of the accident was telephoned to this city, and from the first news it was feared that the lives of the other members of the party were in danger, but later reports conveyed the news that they were resting easily. Coroner Kelly was notified of the death, and he instructed Justice of the Peace Houtaling to conduct the inquest. - There is some water in Willow creek, but not enough to cause danger of drowning to any of the party. When the wagons went down some of the twelve horses were dragged back over the embankment on top of the wagons, and those animals which were on the bridge when the accident occurred, and one of the most remarkable features of the case is that no horses were killed, although all of them were more or less scratched up. The bridge is about sixty feet long, and the banks on either side are straight down, so that there was nothing to prevent the entire bridge from falling. - The bridge was on a private road which has been used by the public for many years, and not under the supervision of the Board of Supervisors. The repairs on the bridge were also done by private parties, so those who traveled over the road did so at their own risk. - All of the men who escaped consider that it was almost a miracle. Stroud had one bone in his right arm broken and suffered several mean gashes about the head. Housh received some bodily injuries, but none which seem dangerous. Townsend was scratched up considerably. At a late hour last evening all of the patients were resting easily and doing as well as could be expected. - The inquest over the remains of Johnson was held last evening, the following men acting on the jury: W. B. Meek, foreman; L. A. Steward, W. Hoff, D. C. Campton, S. J. Fraser, Thomas Roache, G. W. Kendall, Dan Lawless and C. Peterson. - The following verdict was rendered: "We, the undersigned jury, served to appear and make a report as to the death of one Mr. Charles Johnson, hereby rendered the following verdict: "That the death of the said Charles Johnson resulted by the breaking of that certain bridge, situated near Camptonville, and that the said Charles Johnson was riding on the back section of the team driven by one Oscar Stroud; that in crossing said bridge, it gave way, and said Charles Johnson was found pinned between the timbers of the bridge and the wagon, as above described. And we further find that death was purely accidental, and we find no one to blame for the death of the said Charles Johnson." - Charlie Johnson was born and raised at Dobbins Ranch, and was 51 years of age. He was an honest, hard working man, and has worked steadily along the Yuba River on flumes and in saw mills for the Browns Valley Irrigation District, the Bay Counties Power Company and the Yuba Development Company for many years. He was unmarried, and leaves a sister, Mrs. Royat, at Dobbins. - Oscar Stroud is also a native of Yuba county, and was raised around the Oregon House neighborhood, and has driven the teams of Simon Yore hauling freight to Downieville for many years. Stroud is an upright, gentlemanly, hard working man, about 48 years of age, and his many friends earnestly hope that he will recover from his injuries. - Tom Housh was also raised at the Oregon House, and it is said that his injuries are slight. He is married and has a large family, and has been with the Yore teams off and on for several years, generally acting as brake-tender for the trucks. He is also a hard working man, and is to be congratulated that he got out with slight injuries. - Dave Yore, who had just crossed the bridge with his team, had a contract to do the logging and hauling for the Bay Counties Power Company at their saw mill at Slate Range, which is about to start up for the summer, and undoubtedly was moving in with supplies when the accident occurred.

Daily Appeal - 11/13/1903, p1 - Nels Johnson Killed - Found Dead in the Road Under His Overturned Wagon - Yuba City, Nov. 13 - Nels Johnson, a well-known farmer of this county was killed Wednesday night as the result of the overturning of his wagon. - Mr. Johnson was last seen alive at about 10:45 that evening in Marysville. He was then starting for his home at the old S. E. Wilson place, driving a team of spirited black horses attached to a spring wagon laden with provisions. - Shortly before 7 o'clock yesterday morning two men going to work on the levee found the wagon upset in the county road near Shanghai Bend, and Mr. Johnson's body underneath, cold and stiff in death. The horses were standing quietly by. The men, whose names are J. F. Hinman and James McDonald, removed the seat of the wagon from Mr. Johnson's body and discovered that life was extinct. Word was immediately sent to Yuba City. Sheriff Wilson arrived first and took charge of the horses, and Coroner B. W. Rowe arrived soon after. A gold watch and $85 in gold were found on the body. News of the accident was telephoned to Tudor, and thence carried to Mr. Johnson's home. - The place where the accident occurred was almost at the extreme south end of the roads leading along the levee. There are three roads here. The one on which Mr. Johnson had been driving was the "bench" or middle road. In the dark the horses got off the road and the wagon was overset. Examination of the road reveals the fact that some 300 feet north of the place where the wagon turned over the right wheels went off the grade, and from that place on the wagon was in a precarious situation. - The following jury was summoned and a Coroner's inquest was held: A. G. Woodworth, foreman, C. A. Duncan, H. C. Stohlman, Marion Gray, John F. Peters, J. C. Phipps, R. Armstrong, C. W. Burch and W. R. Carpenter. Testimony was heard, substantially in accord with the account of the accident given above, and a verdict was rendered that the deceased came to his death by the accidental upsetting of his wagon. Whether death was directly caused by the fall or Mr. Johnson was rendered unconscious and died from exposure, is not clear. - The deceased was a native of Sweden and 35 years old. During his residence here he was held in high esteem by his neighbors. He was unmarried and his sister, Miss Nellie Johnson, a former resident of Marysville, was his housekeeper.

JONES, CHARLES F.
Marysville Democrat - Wed 6/11/1924, p8 - Jones' Body Is Recovered From Hole In River After Two Days - With the neck broken and the body badly bruised, the remains of Charles S.[F.] Jones, automobile salesman of Marysville, were recovered from a deep pool in the Little North Fork of the Feather a half mile below Merrimac by Sheriff Robert Anderson and a party of assistants late yesterday afternoon. Jones had apparently fallen from the high bluff overlooking the pool, breaking his neck in the fall. - The body was at the bottom of the pool and it was necessary for the rescuers to build a raft and probe the depths before the remains could be brought to the surface. Coroner W. M. Thomas, of Oroville, held an inquest this morning at 9 o'clock. - Jones went fishing on the river with a party of local people last Sunday. When he did not return to camp at the specified hour a search was started. His friends started a search which ended at the pool where Jones' fishing pole was found on the edge of the cliff from which he apparently fell. An object could be seen in the deep water but it was necessary to send to Oroville for poles to dislodge it from its resting place in the bottom of the pool. - Jones' wife, and his son and daughter, aged 2 and 6 years, respectively, who were in the fishing party, returned to Marysville late Monday afternoon. With her husband, Mrs. Jones came to this section from Kansas, their native state, about four years ago. Jones for a time was employed in a Gridley garage. Since leaving Gridley he worked at like employment in Marysville, and for several months past has been in the employ of Ed. Wassler of this city. - Only last Friday, friends of Jones say, he refused to listen to a life insurance agent who endeavored to sell him a policy, saying that he "expected to live a hundred years." The local agent of a life insurance company says Jones allowed a policy to lapse several weeks ago, and that he procrastinated when urged to renew the premium payments.
Marysville Democrat - Thu 6/12/1924, p4 - Jones Funeral Is Held Today; Coroner's Jury Gives Verdict - Funeral services for Charles F. Jones, who was drowned in the Feather river at Merrimac Snuday [sic], were held this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the chapel of Lipp & Sullivan with Rev. D. Loyd Morgan reading the burial ritual. Miss Madge Maynard was the soloist. The following were casketbearers: W. N. Booth, Norman Clark, Lewis Plantz, Tim Plantz, Fred Bohnsack and L. A. Dunbar. Interment was made in the city cemetery. - "The experiences of the party which recovered Jones' body will never be known," said Officer William Booth, upon his return from the scene of the tragedy today. The spot where Jones met his death is known as Sky High Booth said, and is well named. A bluff fully 75 feet high overlooks the river. The water falls at this point have scoured a deep pool below and it was in this pool that the body was located. Whirling eddies kept the remains in one position at the bottom of the pool, Booth said, and it was only after many unsuccessful attempts, that it was dislodged from its place and brought to the surface by means of a grappling hook. - It took Sheriff R. N. Anderson of Butte county and his group of rescuers, from 9 a.m., when the body was found, to 6 p.m. to regain the road, so steep and rough was the country. The passage out of the gorge was effected by means of passing a rope from tree to tree, climbing out hand over hand. - That Jones was dead before he ever struck the water, was the verdict of a coroner's jury which investigated the death in Oroville yesterday. Booth said today that the man's neck had been broken in his fall from the high bluffs. - Sheriff Anderson's testimony at the inquest took the following form: "We found the body at the bottom of a hole in 25 feet of water. We could see from where we stood that 50 feet above he had taken hold of a dead pine tree which had snapped. He fell 25 feet, hit a jetting ledge of rock and then fell 25 feet more into the water. We could see plainly where he hit the reef of rock 25 feet from the top of the bluff." - "We left Sunday morning, at 4:30 a.m." W. M. Booth, Marysville police officer, and a member of the camping party, declared, "to go fishing. We were supposed to be back at 11:30, but we didn't get to camp until 12. Jones never did get back. Tim Plantz and I went up the stream while Lou Plantz and Jones went down the stream. Jones and Plantz became separated." - "When I finished fishing I started for camp thinking Jones preceded me," Plantz said. "When he did not show up we started a search and found his pole lying over the bluff. We knew then he had fallen into the river."

The deed was committed on the railroad track, a short distance south of Wheatland.- The young woman had gone for a stroll down the track with Claude and Carl Burdick, Ralph Boswell, and Miss Lillian Jones and was apparently in a jovial humor. The young people engaged in target practice with the revolver which was owned by young Boswell.

Miss Jory asked her companions to excuse her for a moment as she wished to adjust her clothes. Boswell and his companions started to walk slowly toward home and had taken but a few steps when the shot was fired and they turned to see the young woman fall to the ground. - Word was immediately brought to town, and several rushed to the place to render aid, but they were too late, as the girl was dead. - An investigation was then made of the contents of the note written, which was found to be as follows: "Good bye Mama; please don't blame me for it; I am so tired of everything. I hope that you folks can get along without my help. I don't want you to bury me here, but right beside Audrey. I wish that she had lived instead of me, for she would have done more good than I have. Don't blame the boys or Lillie. MYRTLE." - The mother of the dead girl was almost prostrated when informed of the deed. But she was unable to throw any light on the cause, other than to state that the girl was sick and had been advised that she was liable to die at any time. She suffered from an affliction of the heart. - Coroner Kelly took charge of the body and held an inquest which resulted in the corners jury rendering a verdict of self-destruction. - The request of the deceased to be buried beside the body of her sister at Browns Valley was respected and the funeral was held Monday under direction of Kelly Brothers.
