Marysville Appeal - Tue 12/31/1912, p1 - Notable Record in Longevity Is Held by Labadie Family - A. O. Labadie, one of the most prominent residents of District No. 10, will celebrate his sixty-third birthday January 6, 1913.  He is the youngest of a family of six, all of whom are living and enjoying good health.  The combined age of the six is 418 years. - One of the most striking things in connection with this remarkable family is that there have been only three deaths in it in seventy-seven years.  A sister died forty years ago, while the father and mother were claimed by death twenty-two years ago. This is some record in the matter of longevity and it is doubtful if there is a parallel for it in California.  Mr. Labadie is naturally proud of being a member of such a remarkable family and he intends to make the sixty-third anniversary of his birth a notable event.

San Francisco Call - 12/31/1897 - Kills the Coon, Then Falls Dead Himself:  Strange Death of an Aged Frenchman Near Forbestown While Capturing a Chicken-Thief - Marysville, Dec. 30. - An aged Frenchman named D. Lague, residing in this county near Forbestown, close to the Butte County line, met death last evening under peculiar circumstances.  For some time past Lague had been troubled by a coon that made frequent visits to his hennery.  Monday evening he surprised the varmint and promptly treed him.  He then rushed into the house and procured his rifle, intent on dispatching the intruder.  In order to have his aim uninterrupted, Lague mounted a log beneath the tree and then raised the gun to his shoulder and fired.  The next instant the lifeless body of the coon fell out of the tree and at the same moment Lague toppled forward on his face and lay motionless on the ground. - When his son Charles, who had witnessed the killing of the coon, hastened to Lague's side, he was horror-stricken to find that the old man was dead.  The excitement attendant on the capture of the coon proved too much for the old man, who was subject to heart failure, and thus the spark of life went out.  A Coroner's jury returned a verdict in accordance with the above facts.

LAHERTY, MICHAEL [see Michael Long]

Marysville Daily Appeal - 10/22/1907, p1 - Lived Under Assumed Name - Michael Laherty Lived for Years In Marysville as Michael Long and On His Death His Relatives Were Hard to Locate -  When Michael Laherty came to this country thirty years ago he forsook his father's name and took his mother's name.  It was Long.  Three months ago he died and since that time Public Administrator Arnoldy of this city has been earnestly trying to find relatives of the dead man that were known to exist. - Yesterday Mr. Arnoldy received a letter from the relatives whom he had been searching for for so long.  And the finding of the kinfolk was in a way accidental and revealed the fact that Laherty had been living under a name that was not in reality his. - Laherty was a native of County Kilkenny, Ireland.  After coming to this country he changed his name, for reasons which may never be known, and took his mother's maiden name which was Long.  This is the name he was known by here and it was the name that the burial certificate was made out in and on which the administrator had been endeavoring to locate relatives. - Now that the trouble has been relieved, it is expected that the estate will be settled and the heirs will receive all that is coming to them.

Marysville Daily Herald - 6/23/1857, p2 - Death of Luther Laird - It is our sad duty to announce the demise of Luther Laird, one of the proprietors of the California Express, which occurred yesterday after a long and severe illness.  Mr. Laird was an old resident of Marysville and one of her most esteemed citizens.  He was a good neighbor, a warm friend and an honest man.  In our personal relations with him as a fellow publisher, we always found him a courteous and obliging gentleman.  His journey is over-his troubles are ended and he sleeps in peace.  His consort and relatives have our sincere sympathy in their deep affliction.

Marysville Daily Herald - 6/24/1857, p2 - Funeral of Luther Laird - The last sad obsequies over the earthly remains of Luther Laird, one of the proprietors of the California Express, were performed yesterday afternoon.  At 5 o'clock p.m., the procession formed in front of the late residence of the deceased and proceeded to the Presbyterian church, where the funeral services were performed by Rev. E. B. Walsworth.  The remains were followed to the grave by the Masonic Fraternity, the Odd Fellows, the Fire Department and a large number of citizens.  The procession was one of the largest ever seen in Marysville.

Daily Appeal - 5/21/1910, p1 - Old Estate Is Sought By Nephew - Texan Relative Inquires For Information About Uncle, Luther Laird - An article which appeared in a Sacramento morning paper and was copied in a Marysville newspaper yesterday has given rise in some quarters to the misapprehension that there is a flaw in the title of the United States Hotel property, which is owned by S. Lewek.  There are absolutely no grounds for such a belief, as Mr. Lewek has a clear title to the property established by an abstract compiled twenty years ago. - The misunderstanding arose in this manner.  County Clerk J. F. Eastman received a letter Thursday from F. M. Weatherred of Gunter, Texas, in which inquiry was made about the estate of his uncle, Luther Laird, who died in Marysville in 1857.  A search of the court proceedings showed that no record had been made to indicate that the estate had ever been settled.  The will had been filed and letters of administration issued to the widow, Jane M. Laird, but there the record ceased.  In the will, lot 5, block 3, range D, the land upon which the United States Hotel is located, was left to the widow, and as no record could be found of the settlement of the estate, the continuity of the title seemed broken. - A search of the deed books showed, however, that Laird himself had never owned the property in question, but that his wife, Jane M. Laird, had purchased it in 1855 from Elizabeth Stockton and John Rueger.  He therefore had no right to will the property to her, but it is supposed that he desired to make her title clear by bequeathing his community interest to her. - Mr. Weatherred stated in his letter that he had recently come across an old newspaper clipping in which his uncle's death was mentioned together with the fact that a large estate had been left.  It was in hopes of obtaining some of the property at this late day that his inquiry was sent.

Daily Appeal – 1/22/1878, Pg. 3 – Horrible Suicide – Jacob N. Landerman, a foothill farmer occupying the old “Stanfield ranch,” half a mile above the Galena House on the La Porte and Downieville stage roads, and about 15 miles east of the city, committed suicide on Sunday, 20th instant, about 8 o’clock in the morning, under the following circumstances while laboring under an attack of delirium tremens : Mr. Landerman was tried and acquitted at the last term of the County Court on a charge of attempt to commit rape, and since that time has been much addicted to strong drink. On Saturday Mr. Landerman  was in the city, and returned home in a state bordering on insanity from over-drink. During the evening he beat his wife in a most cruel and shocking manner, and the sufferings of the woman were so painful that she was compelled to seek her bed. At about 11 o’clock Saturday night the crazy man renewed his attack upon his wife, drove her out of bed and the house, and she was obliged to flee to the neighbors for her life. The maniac some time in the night turned upon his children—two boys respectively 13 and 8 years of age, and a girl 10 years old. Seizing the smallest boy he slashed his throat nearly fro ear to ear, but the wound proved to be only a little more than skin deep. The oldest boy seeing the evident intention of the father interfered and the maniac was diverted from his purpose for a brief time, during which the two youngest children crawled under the house and remained until their lives were no longer jeopardized. At about 8 o’clock in the morning, Mr. Landerman took up his shotgun, and in one of the rooms of the house and in presence of the oldest son, shot himself. The butt of the gun was rested upon the floor in rear of Mr. Landerman, while bending backward and at the same time lowering the muzzle to a line with his head he reached and pulled the trigger, when the gun was discharged and the skull and brains of the suicide were scattered in fragments about the room. An inquest was held Sunday on the body by Judge Hall of Brown’s Valley, and the verdict of the jury was that the deceased came to his death on January 20th, by gunshot wounds inflicted by himself. The deceased was a native of Ohio, aged 45 years. He was a member of Oriental Lodge, No. 45, I. O. O. F., and while in the city on Saturday left a sum of money in the hands of a member to meet his dues. The funeral takes place to-day, the body to be buried at Brown’s Valley.  (B. S.)

Marysville Democrat - Friday December 4th 1925 - MYSTERY ILL QUICKLY KILLS SCHOOL GIRL - Gertrude Landers, 12, Is Dead With Malady Doctors Cannot Yet Identify - Death, sudden and mysterious, came to little Gertrude Landers yesterday about noon. - Her mother, Mrs. Philip Pratt could not believe that the little girl was dead and the matter was not reported to the Bever-Bricker funeral home until late in the day. - Investigation of the malady that ended her life is now underway. The symptoms are said to enclude those prevalent in cases of infantile paralysis and spinal meningitis, yet the case is said not resemble either of these to a sufficient extent to diagnose it as either. Only an analysis that is now underway will clear it up. - NOT PTOMAINE - It has been generally reported about the city that the child's death was due to ptomaine poisoning, caused by a sandwich, but Dr. John A Duncan said today that the symptoms were not at all those of ptomaine. He said that many other children had eaten the same kind of sandwich yet only this little girl had become sick. He said he does not attribute death to that cause. - Gertrude was 12 years old. She was apparently in good health when she went to school Wednesday morning. Shortly after luncheon, she seemed dull and listless and later on told her teacher she was sick. - SINKS RAPIDLY - She was taken home and Dr Duncan was called. She grew rapidly worse in spite of all the doctor could do. The malady acted so swiftly that there was little time to diagnose it and learn the cause. - While medical experts are making their tests the little body is being safely guarded against the possibly that the disease that caused death was contagious. The funeral will be held at Oroville. - Besides the mother and stepfather, she leaves a sister, Gladys.  (Transcribed and submitted by Cliff Day)

Evening Democrat - 10/28/1913, p1 - Fralley Lane Commits Suicide While Despondent - His Many Friends Here Surprised and Grieved To Learn About His Death - "Dear Pal:  Look out for the booze!  Don't let it get you the way it got me." - Leaving this brief note behind as the only explanation for his friends and relatives, Fralley Lane, son of Mrs. Alice Lane, a well known resident of this city, quietly went to his room at the Belvedere hotel, 1537 Clay street, San Francisco, early Monday afternoon and shot and killed himself with a revolver.  The young man, who has been living away from Marysville for the past few years, left Elmer Davis, a friend with whom he had been rooming, in the lobby of the hotel in the forepart of the afternoon simply stating that he was going to his room and offering not the slightest intimation of the act he must have resolved in his mind at the time the two young men parted.  When Davis went to the room several hours later he found the lifeless body of his companion, with the pistol and the note beside him.  He was 23 years old. - Act Mystifies Friends - The victim was well known in this city where he was raised and attended the public schools.  He worked in the shops of The Yuba Construction company for a short time a few years ago and later wen [sic] to Oakland, where he took a business course in one of the private school [sic] there.  Up until recently he was employed as a solicitor by the Royal Typewriter company and since that time was employed as a bookkeeper by a large wool buying concern of San Francisco.  He visited with relatives in this city in July and appeared then to be in the best of health and without cause for worry of any kind.  It is known, however, that he was troubled with a weak heart and this is the only reason that friends in this city can account for the suicide.  It is believed that the fact of this trouble weighed upon him and in a moment of despondency caused him to shoot the bullet into his brain. - Friends nor relatives in this city cannot account for the text of the note left behind, for if he was addicted to the use of liquor, it was not known locally. - Popular Young Man - Young Lane was one of the most popular young men in this city at the time of his residence here.  He was unusually affable and seemed to have a faculty for making friends.  He was a member of the local lodge of Foresters of America and before leaving Marysville took an active part in the social affairs of the order.  His father, the late Amos Lane, died suddenly a few years ago from pneumonia. - The surviving relatives, besides his mother, include two sisters, Miss Maude Lane, who is a trained nurse in a San Francisco hospital, and Mrs. William Kelly of Berkeley, and a brother, Riley Lane, who resides with his mother in this city.  The deceased was a nephew of Frank Lane, probation officer of Yuba county. - The remains will arrive here tonight from San Francisco and arrangements for the funeral be completed by Kelly Brothers. - Word of the young man's death reached here last night, but it was not known until today that he was prompted to take his own life.

Marysville Evening Democrat - 7/13/1911, p1 - Joe [sic] Leonard Fell Into Waters Of Yuba River - Dead Body Was Found Within a Short Distance of the Place Where He Went To Get Water - The second drowning within four days occurred here Wednesday when James Leonard, better known as "Shorty" a familiar character of this city, lost his life in the Yuba river at a point on the south side of the stream about 100 yards below the D street bridge.  Just how the unfortunate man fell into the water will perhaps always remain a mystery as there were no eye witnesses to the drowning, but the events leading up to the affair have been learned from Harry Veazie, one of the men who accompanied Leonard to the river bottoms and who was one of the last to see him alive. - Mr. Veazie told the following story to a Democrat reporter last night:  "Shortly after 2 o'clock Wednesday afternoon Joe Brannan, James Leonard and myself left this city to go to the south bank of the Yuba river to prepare a 'mulligan stew.'  Upon arriving at the scene Brannan told Leonard to go to the river and get some water while he gathered the wood to build the fire.  After waiting for some time for Leonard to come back with the water we decided to go ahead and prepare the stew, as we thought Leonard, who was considerably under the influence of liquor, had probably got 'sore' at something and had gone back to town or had gone into the bushes to lay down.  Brannan went after the water himself after which we prepared and ate the stew, thinking that when we arrived in town, would find the missing man here. - It was quite late in the afternoon when we finished our operations across the river and came back to the city.  Of course the first thing we did was to go to Leonard's regular headquarters and ask if he preceded us back to Marysville.  We were informed that nothing had been seen of him since early in the afternoon, and it was then for the first time that it occurred to me that Leonard might have fallen into the river when he went to get the water.  Tom Bennett and myself then decided to go back to the river and see if we could find anything of him.  We found the path he had taken without difficulty and on going close to the bank of the stream discovered his dead body lying in the water.  At this point the river is about eight feet deep but the body of Leonard was close to the surface, having caught on a small snag which held it from sinking to the bottom of the stream.  This is all I know about the matter excepting that we notified the Coroner's office as soon as we found the body."  - It was about 6 o'clock last evening when word of the drowning reached the Coroner's office, immediately after which John Hocking went to the scene and took the body in charge.  Very little is known about Leonard's connections before coming to this city, which was about five years ago.  He was a laborer and worked at several of the grading camps when he first arrived in this city.  For several years he was employed as porter at the Canteen saloon when it was under the management of Joe Whyler.  When he met his death he was employed in the same capacity at the St. Nicholaus saloon on D street. - The dead man is about 53 years of age and is said to be a native of Ireland, but emigrated to this country when quite young.  He served in the United States army, it is said, for 21 years and was a veteran in the Spanish-American war, papers showing that he had served in the army being found on his person when taken from the river.  It is thought that he has a sister living some place in California as he was heard to speak of her when employed by Mr. Whyler several years ago.  Leonard came to Marysville from Benicia soon after being discharged from the army. - While the general opinion is that he fell into the river while in the act of getting the water and was unable to help himself owing to being under the influence of liquor, it is known that the man was subject to fits and it is possible that he may have been suddenly taken with one of these and in this helpless condition fell into the water. - Same page - Inquest Tonight - The inquest over the remains of the late James Leonard who was drowned in the Yuba river last night will be held at the Coroner's office in this city at 7:30 o'clock this evening.

[Different version of events than given above.]  Marysville Daily Appeal - 7/13/1911, p1 - J. Leonard Drowns In Waters Of Yuba - James Leonard, a veteran of the civil war [Spanish-American war], who has been employed at the St. Nicholas saloon as a porter for the past five years, was drowned in the Yuba river shortly after 6 o'clock last night.  His body was discovered a few minutes later by Tom Bennett, who was walking along the bank of the river, and was later taken from the river at the direction of Deputy Coroner Hocking. - According to statements made, Leonard, Harrie Veazie and another man whose name has not been ascertained, made a trip to the vicinity of the bee farm with the intention of cooling a "mulligan stew." - A fire was started and Leonard was detailed to get a pail of water.  He went to the river, a distance of about seventy-five yards, but failed to return.  After waiting about fifteen minutes his companions instituted a search.  They scoured the river in the vicinity, but were unable to find any trace of the missing man.  In the meantime Tom Bennett, who was walking along the bank of the river, noticed the body of Leonard half submerged in the water, where the depth was estimated at about twelve feet.  Leonard had one arm around a pile of brush, and in this position Bennett left him while he hurried to town and notified Coroner Hocking.  In the meantime Chester Lee had hurried out to the river with a long rope and after about fifteen minutes hard work finally succeeded in tying the unfortunate man to the brushes. - The rigid body of Leonard was removed from the river at 7:15 and immediately taken to the undertaking establishment of Kelly Bros. - Very little is known here regarding the family connections of Leonard.  He had been putting his time in at the St. Nicholas saloon doing odd jobs. - An effort will be made to locate relatives of the dead man by the authorities.  Leonard was about sixty years old.

Daily Appeal – 12/28/1895, Pg. 1 – CHINAMAN SUICIDES – At Strawberry Valley a Mongolian Tries to Swallow a Bullet – A Chinaman committed suicide by shooting at Strawberry Valley Monday. He had come down from La Porte and was waiting for the stage to make the rest of the trip to Marysville. He sat near the stove in the office of John Robertson’s hotel there and had removed his boots. He acted as if he was crazy according to one of the eyewitnesses. After he had taken off his boots he got up and started for the washroom door twice but returned each time and sat down again. Finally he got up and sprinted to the door, opened it and went inside. The door has a glass upper half. As soon as the celestial was inside he turned his face to the glass panes in the door and the observer saw him put a pistol in his mouth. A second, and there was a report. He was dead before they reached him. The bullet passed out the upper part of his skull.  (B.S.) 

Oroville Daily Register – 1/02/1896 – To the Chinese Heaven – A celestial who had been working for some time for Hop Kee at La Porte got to drinking too heavily and his companions thought if he could be induced to go away he would be benefited. He came down on the stage as far as Strawberry Valley. At this place he entered a backroom while the stage was stopping., put a 4 1/(? Not readable ) pistol to his mouth ad instantly killed himself. It is supposed he had an attack of delirium tremens. (B.S.)  [Note: Yuba County Undertakers Records 1889-1897 – Died December 23, 1895 – at Strawberry Valley – age 30 years – Chinese, male – occupation, cook – cause of death, consumption – undertaker, M.F. Emerson (Town’s butcher at the time).
