KERNS, THOMAS

 

Sacramento Union - 2/20/1852 - Up-River News – We are indebted to Gregory for a copy of the Marysville Herald, of yesterday. The official returns of the late election for Assemblyman, of Yuba county, gave Cook ( W. ) a majority of 162 votes over McCann, ( Dem. ). -  Indian Murders.----On the road between Nelson’s creek and Baker’s ranch, a man by the name of Thomas Kerns, was killed by the Indians, within 400 yards of a ranch. The circumstances becoming known, a party of whites collected the next day, came upon an Indian camp and killed, it is stated, some six or eight of the tribe. The body of the murdered man was found and decently buried. On Monday a man named G. B. Day, and said to be a minister, while at work at the headwaters of Dry creek , four miles from Tolles’ diggings, mining, was attacked and murdered by a party of Indians, and thrown into the hole which he was working.---Seventeen arrows were found sticking in his person. The citizens of Nathes and Tolles’ upon learning the facts of this last murder, assembled in considerable numbers, and went out with determination of having revenge. They made a demonstration upon an Indian encampment near Tolles’, and would have proceeded to unjustifiable extremities, but for the assurances of the chiefs that the murderers would be given up. The Americans returned with several prisoners, but whether they have the guilty parties or not is a question still to be determined.  (B. S.)

KITRICK, JULIA

 

Oroville Daily Register – 5/21/1909 – MRS. JULIA KITRICK IS CALLED BY DEATH – Pioneer Woman Passed Away After Long And Useful Life – Came To California Across The Isthmus In The Year 1859 – Mrs. Julia Kitrick, the mother of County Treasurer, R. S. Kitrick, Lawrence Kitrick, and J. J. Kitrick, died about 2:30 o’clock yesterday morning at her home near Lumpkin. Mrs. Kitrick had been ill for the past two months, and it had been known that the end was not far off. It was not thought, however, that she would pass away so soon, as on Sunday last, when all three of her sons were with her. She appeared much stronger, and Dr. Reardan, who was attending her, stated that while she might pass away in a short time, yet again she might last through the summer months. Mrs. Kitrick came to California in 1859, settling in Yuba County. She was born in Ireland in October, 1820, and came to America when a young woman. She was married in New York in 1854 to Lawrence Kitrick. Mr. Kitrick preceded her to California coming around the Horn. In 1858 she followed him to this state, making the trip across the Isthmus. They settled in Yuba County, where the husband and father died in 1873. Since 1892 Mrs. Kitrick had been living at Lumpkin. A woman of sterling character, kindly, and unselfish, Mrs. Kitrick found the chief duties of her life within her home, rearing her children and instilling in them the ability to bear their full share of responsibilities of life. She was repaid by seeing her three sons grow to manhood, obtain success in their vocations and attain the respect and confidence of whole communities. The tender and loving ministrations of these sons in her later life repaid her for the years of sacrifice and devotion that she had devoted to them. Mrs. Kitrick leaves three sons, R. S. Kitrick and Lawrence Kitrick, of Oroville, and J. J.Kitrick, of Lumpkin; a sister, Mrs. Hannah Hyde, of Vallejo, and a brother, William Butler, of New York. The funeral services will be held on Saturday. Mr. A. V. Reynolds, who has charge of the funeral, states that the cortege will leave the residence of Mr. R.S. Kitrick at 8 o’clock in the morning, will proceed to the Catholic Church, where Mass will be said, and the interment will be in the Strawberry Valley Cemetery, where the husband and father lies. (B.

KITRICK, WILLIAM 

San Francisco Chronicle – 11/5/1892 – GASHED HIS THROAT – A Revolting Suicide on the Street – Life Let Out With a Dull Knife – William Kitrick of Oroville Ends His Life in a Horrible Manner – A few minutes before 10 o’clock yesterday morning a middle-aged man was seen to walk down Dupont Street and turn in to Harlan place. He had proceeded down that alley but a few feet when he stopped and sat down upon the curbstone. From a trousers pocket he took a heavy single-bladed pocket-knife and began to whet it on his shoe. His actions attracted the attention of two or three men and two small boys who were passing down the alley. When the strange man pulled a hair from his beard and began to try the edge of the knife, razor fashion, the men who had observed him smiled and passed on. A moment later they they were startled by a cry from the boys. Turning around they were horrified upon seeing the stranger standing upright and sawing his throat with the knife. Blood gushed in streams from the wounds that he was making. Policeman Gibson, hearing the cries of murder set up by the two small boys, ran into the alley in time to stay the suicidal hand and catch the man before he fell to the sidewalk. An attempt was made to walk the victim to the corner, but the loss of blood was so great that his legs failed him and he fell into the policeman’s arms. An emergency call was telephoned to police headquarters and a patrol wagon responded. The injured man was placed in the ambulance and taken to the receiving hospital. On the way out Market street he tried to enlarge the wounds in his throats by tearing away the flesh with his hands. . It took the united efforts of two officers to prevent him carrying out his design. As soon as he was placed on the operating table Dr. Somers pronounced the wounds fatal, and within fifteen minutes from the time he was brought in the Coroner was notified of his death. The suicide proved to be William Kitrick, a lumberman and millowner from Oroville, Butte county. There was nothing in his pockets which could possibly explain his horrible deed unless it might be the following words scribbled on the back of an advertising card: Good-bye Annie; I have been hypnotized. W. KITRICK. There were other letters, one from the brother and business partner of the deceased., and a telegram from A. L. Veuve of Santa Crus making an appointment to meet the the deceased in this city on Thursday last. All of these letters seemed to refer to business matters. When Kitrick came to the city could not be ascertained. At the Russ House, where he usually stops, he had not registered. The clerk knew him well, however, and was holding letters for him. The Coroner has notified R. S. Kitrick of Oroville, who is a brother of the deceased and his partner in the Lumpkin Mill Company, and the latter has answered that he will be in the city today.  There is little doubt that Kitrick was insane. From outside sources it has been learned that he was troubled over his domestic affairs, and that he imagined that his wife had cause for complaint against him, but in this city the particulars of the affair could not be learned. – KITRICK’S BUSINESS INTERESTS – He Was Despondent Over the Recent Suicide of a Partner – OROVILLE, November 4.—William Kitrick was one of the owners and the general manager of the Lumpkin sawmill and the Oroville planning-mill. The company owns 15,000 acres of sugar pine timberland on Fall river, thirty-five miles from Oroville, and the sawmill cuts between 3,000,000 and 4,000,000 feet of lumber a year. The planning-mill at this place was under his personal supervision. The property of which Kitrick had the management was owned by T. J. Birmingham of Strawberry Valley, J. F. Rowell of Oroville and himself. About a month ago Rowell was found dead in his house at this place. His death was suicidal. He had taken morphine during the night and was found at noon the next day. Mr. Kitrick entered the house and found his partner dead and it is believed that this wrought upon his mind greatly. Kitrick was 40 years old and was married, but had no children. He was industrious, attentive to his business and frugal. He was well known and popular. He owned a valuable quartz mine on Willow creek, Plumas county, known as the Little California, and was interested in gravel mining. The sawmill company owes some money on it’s property. but the mills and land are worth two and a half times the debts. Coming so suddenly after the suicide of his partner, Kitrick’s death has horrified the people here. It is stated here that Kitrick carried a life insurance amounting to $15,000.  (B. S.)

Lampkin, the night policeman at the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe depot, was shot and killed at 11:40 yesterday evening by a passenger named J. W. Knorsa, who was en route from San Francisco to New York, and who had gone insane on the train.  He imagined he was pursued by a mob with a rope who were threatening to hang him.  He escaped from the train at this point and after threatening the lives of some of the switchmen with a revolver he took refuge behind some cars near the ice house.  The night watchman, assisted by Deputy Marshal Gemmill, went in search of him and while in the act of crossing the coupling between two cars he suddenly saw Knorsa right in front of him with a revolver pointed directly at him.  Lampkin commanded him to drop his revolver and throw up his arms or he would shoot him.  Instead of doing so Knorsa fired.  The ball entered Lampkins neck killing him instantly.  Knorsa then ran off and concealed himself in the yard.  At early daylight this morning his body was found some fifty yards from where he had shot Lampkin with his throat cut from ear to ear.  In his despair he had taken a small pocket knife and cut his throat in the manner above described.  He afterwards stuffed a silk handkerchief into the opening, and started on going a few yards when he dropped dead.  On his person was found his railway ticket, a New York draft for thirty dollars, a baggage check, a lodge receipt for dues in the Ancient Order of Foresters of America, located at Marysville, California, by which his identity was discovered, and news sent by the authorities. - His relatives here had not know [sic] he had gone East, and as far as known, he had not informed any one here of his intended departure, and it is stated by persons who have been intimately associated with him that he has acted strange on several occasions within the past few months.  There is a rumor to the effect that he was going East to get an intended bride and to be married, but the facts were not known here if such was the case, though he has kept up a correspondence with Miss Thresa Hornung, at Brooklyn, New York, and had paid for the Democrat, sent to her address, at his request, during two years past. - The remains will probably arrive here Saturday night next, and be buried here by the side of the remains of his father, who was a pioneer citizen of Marysville.  The sad event has brought great grief to the mother and relatives, and has caused a cloud of sadness to settle down around his many friends and associates here, yet it is only what may be expected as we pass along the journey of life, and count the days and years to return no more.
