Marysville Daily Appeal - Death of an Aged Woman; Claimed by Her Family That She Had Passed the Century Mark by Thirty Years - Mrs. Percillia [sic] Nelson, a colored woman who has resided in this city for the past thirteen years, died at 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon at the home of her son, Nathaniel Nelson, corner of Tenth and G streets. - According to the family records furnished to the Appeal by her son, she was born in Cook county, Tennessee, on March 8, 1769, which would make her 130 years of age at the time of her death. - She had been a resident of Tennessee for many years in early life, afterwards going to reside in Missouri, from which State she came to California with her husband, who had prior to that time crossed the plains in 1850, and earned enough money by conducting a laundry in Sacramento to return and purchase her freedom. The couple resided for many years at Lodi, San Joaquin county, before coming to Marysville. - The deceased woman was the mother of thirteen children, one of her daughters, Mrs. Monroe being a resident of Prairie district, and her son Nathan being employed as janitor in several business houses in this city. He has taken care of his aged mother for many years, and stated that she was able to be about the house and take exercise up to about four months ago, and had at all times enjoyed excellent health. While the deceased woman is known to have been a very old woman, still it is scarcely to be believed that the claim made that she had reached the age of one hundred and thirty years is worthy of credence. It is not at all unlikely that she had passed the century mark, however, and in looking backward over that lapse of time what great changes have been observed by the woman who is now dead. Within her life time, beginning but a short time after the close of the revolutionary war came the formation of the Government of this country and its acquisition of territory until the brotherhood of states from the thirteen original colonies had stretched from ocean to ocean. In the world of invention the steamboat, locomotive engine, telegraph and telephone have all been involved. In the cause of humanity the shackles have been stricken from her people, and where in her prime all people of African decent were held in bondage, now all are free and equal. It has been a long life that "Granny" Nelson has lived, and how the world has progressed the while and how it will go on advancing till who can tell the wonderful events which may come to pass before we who are in our prime come to lay down the burden of life also and pass into the hereafter.

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]

D. Loyd Morgan, pastor of the First Christian church, will conduct the rites. - Interment will be made in the Lofton cemetery near Erle. - Sister, 4, Sees Drowning - Minnie, Willard and Howard, children of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Nutt, were drowned Saturday afternoon at the scene of the Alicia levee break in 1928, about three miles southwest of Marysville. - The children, wading in a pond formed by seepage from the Feather river, stepped off a ledge on the bottom of the pond while four-year-old sister, Marie, watched in horror. - The triple drowning occurred about a half mile from the house occupied by the Nutt family on the property of the Farm Lands Investment Co., by which firm Nutt is employed. - Dog Stays By Pond - The mother and father were notified of the tragedy by Marie after she had run home, all the way from the scene of the drowning. The little girl explained that her sister and brothers had suddenly disappeared together in the water. - While Marie was on her way to tell the parents, a small fox terrier dog, pet of the Nutt children, remained at the edge of the pond.

When they were found, a motorboat was being transported to the pond with a tractor and trailer to aid in the efforts at rescue. - The children had gone wading with the consent of their parents. The water, the children had said, was "very shallow." It was not dangerous, they explained. According to the father, he had warned them, before they left for the pond, to be careful. Minnie had told him not to worry because she would watch the younger children and take care of them. - Deep Stepoff - It was apparent that the children were unaware of the ledge on the bed of the pond. Next to the shore the water is shallow, but three feet from the bank the pond deepens precipitately. The water where the bodies were found was between five and six feet deep. - Minnie, Willard and Howard were members of a family of seven children. Surviving them besides the parents and the little sister, Marie, are three sisters, Nadine and Frances Nutt, and Mrs. Myrtle LeRoy of Colgate. - Their father is a brother of Ernest Nutt of Wheatland, former Yuba county supervisor. - Coroner Frank M.

NYE, HARRIET FRANCES (MURPHY)
Appeal – 09/19/1871, p. 3 – FUNERAL OF THE LATE MRS. NYE. – The remains of Mrs. H. F. Nye, wife of M. C. Nye, has arrived from Oregon, and will be interred to-day. The funeral will be held at St. John’s Church, at 4 P.M. to-day. The deceased was a sister to W. G. Murphy, of this city, and a sister of the late Mrs. Mary Covillaud, in whose honor Marysville received its name. Her husband was one of the earliest settlers of the county. He will be remembered by many old Californians as the proprietor of “Nye’s Ranch,” as this place was once called. The deceased, whose death occurred in Oregon, a year ago last August, was widely known and esteemed for her many virtues. She, too, will be remembered by many who made this city, in early days, and to whom the hospitalities of her home were ever extended. A large circle of friends will mourn the deceased and cherish her memory. It is fitting that her remains should rest near where her youthful days and maturer years were passed, among the scenes she loved so well. Doubtless a large attendance will be at the church, to show the last sad tribute of respect to one who, for many years, lived among us, winning the love and respect of all who knew her.

NYE, MICHAEL C.
Daily Appeal – 07/19/06, p. 1, continued on p. 8 – COLONEL MICHAEL C. NYE PASSES AWAY IN OREGON – Marysville’s Oldest Pioneer Died Recently After a Long and Exceedingly Varied and Interesting Career. – Word was received last evening of the death of Col. Michael C. Nye at Prineville, Or., on the 12th inst., at the ripe old age of 85 years. Marysville was at one time called “Nye’s Ranch,” having been so named after the deceased, who, in the early forties, was owner of the land which is now known as Marysville. – Mr. Nye was born April 10, 1821, in the little town of Bucyrus, O. In the course of time he drifted with the tide of population into what is now known as the State of Missouri. There he met General Bidwell, his brother in pioneer fame, and with him formed a company of thirty-six persons, on May 8, 1841, who left Independence, Mo., bound for California. They passed near Salt Lake to the Carson river and thence to the main channel of Walker’s river. Near the source of the last named stream they crossed the Sierra, descending into the San Joaquin valley, journeying to what was formerly known as the “Marsh Ranch,” near Mount Diablo, where they arrived on the 4th day of November, 1841. At this point the company disbanded, the members distributing themselves throughout the State. Mr. Nye was the last surviving member of the company, General Bidwell having preceded him to the grave. In 1846, Mr. Nye was the owner of a large herd of cattle and a band of horses, which he pastured in what is now known as Linda Township. It may be of interest to state that the house where Mr. Nye then resided was of peculiar construction. Ends of stout poles were sunk into the ground and willows were interwoven through them horizontally, forming a sort of basket work. A heavy coating of soft clay was plastered over the wicker work on both sides and the roof was thatched with tule grass, brought from Nicolaus. The floor was constructed of sun-burned brick and earth, pounded down smooth. A coat of whitewash was the only covering of the bare and unsightly walls. – In 1847, a more pretentious and commodious structure of two rooms was erected. The walls of the new building were of adobe, that is to say of mud, and the roof was covered with split shakes brought from the river bottom near Marysville. This building, as well as the first one, was situated across the Yuba river from this city, and must not be confounded with the old adobe hut which stood at the foot of D street at that time. In the latter part of the year 1846, Mr. Nye entered the employ of Theodore Cordua, who was then the only white man who owned a home in Yuba county. Cordua was the first settler of Yuba county. He also owned large herds of stock and made his living by selling the horns, hoofs and hides to ship’s boats which came up the river from Yerba Buena (now San Francisco). Marysville was then called “New Mecklenburg,” in honor of the place of nativity of Captain John A. Sutter, who claimed a large Mexican grant called the New Helvetia Grant, which extended from the Yuba river to the Third Standard North and from the Feather river to the foothills. Mr. Covillaud, a pioneer of 1844, became a partner of Mr. Nye about this time; and in the spring of 1847, the Yuba County contingent of the Donner Party arrived in this vicinity. With the party came William Foster and his wife and their relatives. - In October, 1848, Theodore Cordua sold one-half of his interests in Yuba county, which included the land now comprising the City of Marysville, and vast heards of cattle and horses, to Charles Covillaud, for the modest sum of $12,500, and on January 4, 1849, he sold the remaining half to Nye and Foster for $20,000. Later on Covillaud became the sole owner and thereafter disposed of three-quarters of the property as follows: One-fourth to John Sampson, one-fourth to Theodore Sicard and one-fourth to J. M. Ramirez. – On January 1, 1848, Mr. Nye and Mr. Covillaud married sisters-in-law of William Foster at Sacramento. – The writer, in an article published in this paper the day following death of William G. Murphy, made mention of some interesting particulars connected with the life history of Mr. Nye, which it might be as well to repeat. When Mr. Nye came to California there were not over twenty white persons in San Francisco, which place was at the time known as Yerba Buena. Not half a dozen white people were living in the northern part of the State outside of Yerba Buena. Indians and “Greasers” were almost the only inhabitants of the State. – In December, 1849, Mr. Nye took his family back to the East by way of Panama: Again, in 1854, Mr. Nye undertook the long and arduous journey to California over the plains, this time with a large band of cattle, which he expected to sell at fabulous prices and out of which he did, in fact, make a splendid profit. – Nye was a prominent figure in Marysville’s affairs until about the year 1870, when he took up his residence at Prineville, Or., from which place his death has been announced. Mr. Nye was a man of commanding presence, standing 6 feet 4 inches in height. By reason of his distinguished bearing, but not on account of any military service, he was familiarly called “Colonel” by his friends. – In 1856 and for several years after, he resided with the family of Gabriel N. Swezy, in the old homestead, at the corner of D and Seventh streets, now owned by Henry Broek, superintendent of the Sunset Telephone Company. He built the residence now occupied by John C. Lumbard, and occupied it with is [sic] family until the early sixties. – Mr. Nye’s remains will rest in the cemetery at Prineville.

Daily Appeal – 06/25/1903, p. 4 – FOUND DEAD – Samuel W. Nye, the Painter, Meets Death by Drowning – The remains of Samuel Washington Nye, a well known Yuba City painter, were found yesterday afternoon under the first trestle between the levee and the Feather river bridge, near the old McDonald race track. – The body was first seen by a railroad crew who told O. W. Wallace when they arrived at Yuba City. He at once notified Coroner Kelly, who found the body at the place described in about a foot and a half of water. There was a mark on the forehead that was no doubt caused by striking a stump on which the body lay. – Coroner Kelly found a purse containing $12.55 in one of the pockets, a watch, pair of spectacles, rule, knife and two letters which were signed “Nettie.” – The deceased was about 68 years of age, and was a member of the firm of Mount & Nye, painters, and had resided in Yuba City about 15 years. He visited Marysville last Sunday and had ninety dollars in his possession. That was the last seen of him. He had been married twice, and had a daughter, Mrs. Armstrong, who resides at San Jose. – An inquest will be held today. The body was badly decomposed but D. O. Mount has positively identified the body and the articles found in his possession.
Daily Appeal – 06/26/1903, p. 1 – DEATH WAS ACCIDENTAL. – Result of Inquest Over Remains of Samuel W. Nye. – Coroner J. K. Kelly held an inquest at 7 o’clock last evening to inquire into the causes leading to the death of Samuel W.

Featherly, James R. Sulliven [sic], Charles Dietz, Phil McCune, Charles Bruce and James Divver. – D. A. Mount, the partner of the deceased who was a painter, stated that he last saw the unfortunate man alive last Sunday afternoon. He stated that the deceased was usually very timid about crossing a trestle work. – Evidence was also given that the watch of the deceased had stopped at 11 o’clock. When the body was found the face of the man was turned downward. – The jury found that the deceased was a native of Vermont, about 70 years of age, and that he came to his death by falling off the trestle, and that it was accidental.
NYE, URIAH S.
Daily Democrat – 02/19/1897 – p. 1 – URIAH NYE DEAD. – A Glenn County Farmer Whose Name is Closely Associated With Marysville’s Early History. – REVERSES AND ILL HEALTH. – Uriah S. Nye, a prominent farmer of Glenn county, committed suicide yesterday afternoon by shooting himself in the right temple at his home, twelve miles west of Willows on the Mendocino railroad. Wednesday evening he complained of feeling unwell, and at noon yesterday requested his son and two daughters to withdraw from the room, explaining that he wished to sleep. – An hour later the household was alarmed by hearing the report of a pistol shot, and, on rushing to Nye’s bedroom, found him dead. Business reverses and ill-health are supposed to have been the cause of the suicide. – The name of Nye is inseparable with the history of Marysville. When the first settlement on the banks of the Yuba river was made it was known as Nye’s ranch, and included the Cordua and New Helvetia grants of which tracts Yuba and Sutter counties are now principally made up. It was Michael C. Nye, a brother of the suicide, who, in partnership with William Foster and Charles Covillaud, brothers-in-law of Attorney W. G. Murphy of this city, first owned these lands. Michael C. Nye now resides at Prineville, Oregon. – Uriah S. Nye retained many friends in Marysville who will be grieved to learn of his sad end. Occasionally his daughters visited in this city, one of the young ladies being named after a well-known Marysville lady. Deceased always had a warm welcome for Marysville folks who visited Glenn county. In the early 70’s he was a prosperous farmer, regarded as independent, and up to a few years ago was still considered quite wealthy.
