RACKERBY, was drowned this morning in Honcut Creek, the stage he was driving going off the grade in the flood and darkness just after the new bridge had been crossed.

RAISH, CHARLES

Daily Appeal - 9/10/1904, p1 - A Respected Citizen - Charles Raish, Resident of Marysville for Half a Century - Charles Raish, the well known blacksmith, arrived in Marysville fifty-two years ago today from Beloit, Wis.  He came across the plains with an ox team the trip occupying five months, and he has been a resident of this city ever since. - He has worked at blacksmithing continuously from 1844 to the present time, a period of sixty years, except for the few months that were taken up in crossing the plains, and during this time he occasionally did some work while en route. - He was born in Covington, Lusern [sic] county, Pa., and on June 26th last was 76 years of age.  He has been a respected resident of Marysville ever since his arrival in pioneer days. - Mr. Raish was married in this city, his wife's maiden name being Elizabeth E. Dole.  There are three daughters and a son in the family, Mrs. W. F. Cunningham of San Leandro, Mrs. D. B. Fowler of Madera, Edna Raish, the youngest of the family, who resides at home, and Police Judge Ralph Raish, also of this city.

Daily Appeal - 2/27/1910, p1&8 - Charles Raish Is Killed By Train:  Run Down by Southern Pacific Locomotive On the Feather River Trestle - Charles Raish, a pioneer blacksmith and wagon maker of this city, was run down by a southbound Southern Pacific passenger train on the Feather river trestle yesterday afternoon about 1:40 o'clock and fatally injured.  He was removed to his home at Eighth and D streets in this city, where he died from internal injuries at 4:30 o'clock. - The deceased had spent the morning cutting the grass and cleaning up the yard about his D street home and in the afternoon decided to take a walk over to Yuba City and chose the Southern Pacific grade and trestle as the route.  He was walking along the trestle leisurely when he suddenly discovered the approaching train.  He endeavored to reach one of the small platforms on the side of the trestle as a place of safety, but he was unable and was struck in the back and hurled from the trestle to the ground below, a distance of about eight or ten feet.  The train was stopped at once by Engineer Jardine and the injured man was placed aboard and conveyed to the depot at Yuba City.  Although he complained of a severe pain in the mack [sic] it was not thought that his injuries were of a very serious nature.  He was placed in a cab and conveyed to his home in this city where he was attended by Dr. J. H. Barr.  His condition gradually developed for the worse until the end came about 4:30 o'clock. - The train was No. 21, known as the Sacramento-Oroville local, and was in charge of Conductor Charles Englerock, while Engineer Jardine was handling the throttle on the engine.  Engineer Jardine observed the man walking on the trestle and after he tooted his whistle naturally thought that he would step off on one of the platforms to a place of safety.  Mr. Raish evidently became badly frightened and confused and was unable to make any progress in his movements to reach a place of safety, for he certainly had ample time according to the statements of those who witnessed the terrible accident, to make his escape. - The deceased was a native of Scranton, Pa., and aged 81 years, 8 months and 4 days and is survived by a wife, Elizabeth G. Raish, three daughters, Mrs. William Cunningham of San Leandro, Mrs. D. B. Fowler of Madera, and Miss Edna Raish of Marysville; also one son, Attorney R. R. Raish of this city. - Mr. Raish came to this city about fifty years ago and engaged in the blacksmithing and wagon-making business and for many years conducted an establishment of that kind on Third street between C and D.  He was well known and highly respected, being an upright man in all his business dealings and one always ready to lend an aiding hand to a friend. - He was a member of Yuba Lodge, F. & A. M., and of Marysville Commandery, Knights Templar.  He was probably one of the oldest Masons in the country, having become a member of the Masonic order at Belotym, Wisconsin, in 1840. - Kelly Bros. have taken charge of the body and the funeral arrangements will be made later.  An inquest will be held Monday by Coroner Kelly.

Daily Appeal - 3/2/1910, p1&8 - Charles Raish Laid To Rest In Grave: Pioneer of Marysville Died As He Had Lived, Loved, Honored and Respected. - The tolling of the fire bell in the tower of the City Hall yesterday afternoon was the announcement of the funeral of the late Charles Raish.  The somber tones of the big bell caused a feeling of sadness to pervade the community as they thought of the good neighbor, kind friend, excellent citizen, honored pioneer who had met with such a sad and tragic death when run down and killed by a locomotive on the Feather river trestle on Saturday.  He was known to every man, woman and child in Marysville, and all who knew him respected him for his noble qualities, his goodness of heart, his loyalty to his home, and his sterling worth as a peaceable, God-fearing, law-abiding citizen. - He had lived in Marysville so long that he was an encyclopedia so far as the city's history was concerned.  In his younger days he served with the volunteer fire department and served the city in several official positions. - He was about one of the oldest members of the Masonic fraternity in the State, having joined the order at Belotym, Wisconsin, over sixty years ago. - Yuba Lodge No. 39, F. & A. M., took charge of the funeral yesterday and they were assisted by Marysville Commandery.  There was a large attendance of the brothers of the order, relatives, neighbors and friends present during the holding of the ritualistic exercises at the Masonic Temple, which was conducted by W. M. William Loehne, assisted by the officers of the lodge.  Masonic rites were also conducted by the brethren at the grave, where each deposited on the coffin a spring of acacia.  The floral offerings were many and beautiful, mute but touching evidence of the esteem in which the deceased was held by those who will soon follow him to that above from which there is no escape, the common lot of all who live. - The pallbearers were Conrad Schuler, John Peffer, John Onstott, Peter Engel, C. A. Barnes and C. F. Palm. - Charles Raish was a native of Scranton, Pa., aged 81 years, 8 months and 4 days, and is survived by a wife, Elizabeth G. Raish, three daughters, Mrs. Wm. Cunningham, of San Leandro, Mrs. D. B. Fowler, of Madera and Miss Edna Raish, of Marysville; also one son, Attorney R. R. Raish of this city. - Yesterday when the hour arrived for the funeral to take place a jury trial was in progress in the Justice Court.  Judge Morrissey, who was presiding, called a halt in the proceedings and declared a recess during the hour the funeral was in progress.  Judge Morrissey, who is an enthusiastic member of the order of N.S.G.W., is a great admirer of the pioneers of California, those who braved the dangers of the desert, and the buffets of old ocean in coming to this country in the olden, golden days.  He paid a high tribute to the deceased pioneer, who came to Marysville when it was a young village, pitched his tent where the court house now stands, and established himself in the blacksmithing business, which he followed for many years.  The judge referred to many incidents in the life of the deceased and to his good qualities, benevolence, and kindly disposition.  He spoke words of sympathy for Attorney Raish, who was his predecessor on the bench and the other members of the bereaved family. - Other members of the bar in the courtroom at the time spoke in similar strain.

Daily Appeal - 3/3/1910, p1 - Coroner's Jury In Raish Case Exonerate Engineer Jardeau: Unfortunate Man Was Walking On the Feather River Trestle When the Engine Knocked Him Off - "We, the jury, find that the deceased, Charles Raish, a native of Scranton, Pa., aged 81 years, 8 months and four days, came to his death on the 26th day of February, 1910, in Yuba county, California, from injuries received by being struck by Southern Pacific train No. 21, and we further find and believe that the engineer endeavored to stop the train and used all precautions generally used in such cases." - The above was the result of the inquest held on the body of Charles Raish, who was killed last Saturday afternoon while walking across the Southern Pacific trestle to Yuba City, by being run down by the Oroville-Sacramento local passenger train No. 21.  The inquest was called at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon by Coroner Kelly, and the following jury was selected:  John Peffer, Peter Engel, William McClelland, Amos Fisher, C. A. Barnes and Eugene Sneed. - Engineer's Statement - The principal witness during the progress of the inquest was Louis Jerdeau, the engineer.  He stated that it was about 1:50 o'clock when he crossed the K street levee in this city, and blew the usual station whistle for Yuba City.  While in the act of blowing the whistle he observed a man on the trestle between the bridge which crosses the Feather river and the gravel deck trestle, this side.  He stated that it is no unusual occurrence for pedestrians to be walking across trestles and naturally he thought the man would step off on one of the platforms to a place of safety as is the usual custom.  A few seconds later he blew what is termed as a station whistle and opened the valve of the whistle fully in order to warn the man of the danger approaching. - Turned Around - Engineer Jerdeau [sic] stated that the man then turned around and faced the train, turned back and started to run as if in an attempt to reach the large platform.  He ran but a short distance and then stopped.  The engineer then threw on the air and emergency brakes, but was unable to arrest the progress of the train, which was moving at a speed of about twenty miles per hour, in time to avoid an accident. - He stated that from his position or seat in the cab he is unable to see an object ten feet in front of the engine.  Therefore he did not know whether he had struck the man or if he had escaped by stepping off on one of the small platforms on which is stationed a barrel of water for fire protection.  He at once called to the fireman and asked "Did we hit him?"  The latter replied that they had and that Raish had been knocked from the trestle to the ground below, a distance of about ten feet. - Engineer Jerdeau stated that he and the fireman then stepped out of the cab and hurried down the embankment to the unfortunate man, who was in a sitting position on the sand.  He was bleeding slightly from the mouth.  He asked Raish if his side was injured and the latter replied that it was not, but complained of his neck.  They placed the injured man on the train and he was conveyed to the depot at Yuba City. - Fireman's Story - The testimony of Fireman Sherwood was comparatively the same as that of Engineer Jerdeau, with the exception that he witnessed the last stages of the accident, he being on the left side of the engine where he had a clear view of the man all the time.  He stated that Raish was struck in the side by the bumper on the left side of the engine and when he fell from the trestle he struck his head. - There were several other witnesses examined, among them being Conductor Engelrock, who was in charge of the train, but their testimony brought out practically nothing that had not been previously adduced by the other witnesses.

RICHARDSON, HARRIS C.

Marysville Daily Democrat - 4/1/1897, p1 - Here Is A Lesson - The Rapid Pace Set by a Young Man Leads to His Death Under Regretful Conditions - A Legacy From The East - Had Harrie [sic] C. Richardson lived until the second day of next January he would have celebrated his twenty-ninth birthday and continue to have bright prospects of which any young man might well be envious.  But he chose the path that is not of the straight and narrow kind, and to-day his lifeless body occupies a slab at the morgue. - With three companions young Richardson arrived in this city last Sunday evening.  He had been here but a short while when he convinced the observant ones that the object of his visit was pleasure rather than business.  He prided himself on the possession of diamond finger rings and checks galore, and his ability to keep up his end when it came down to sociability and congeniality for "the boys" sake.  He had "money to burn" and found no trouble in finding companions to aid in fanning the flame that consumes. - Last night about 12 o'clock this young man was conveyed from the house at the foot of D street known as No. 7 to one of the hotels, suffering all the torments that follow in the wake of overindulgence in alcohol.  Two hours later he died, despite the efforts of a physician to restore him. - This forenoon when his trunk was opened at the office of Coroner Bevan one of the first documents to be revealed was a certificate of service issued from army headquarters showing that young Richardson joined Troop A of the Fifth U. S. Cavalry December 22, 1890, and served until March 21st, 1894(1891?), when he was honorably discharged at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, the original discharge giving his character as "very good." - From the young men who accompanied deceased to this city it is learned that he has been in California nearly three years, Napa City being his headquarters until recently.  He worked chopping wood near that place.  On the 18th instant he received a legacy of $1,500 from an Eastern relative and immediately started on a spree, going first to San Francisco, thence to Woodland and finally reaching this city.  About $200 of the amount received from the East is left.  Ex-Mayor Alexander Lewis of Detroit, Michigan, is an uncle of deceased's mother. - Richardson and his companions were on the way to Red Bluff, near which place they intended trying their luck at prospecting.  They had purchased a portion of their outfit in San Francisco and expected to buy their tents, shovels, tools, etc., in Red Bluff.  The young men with Richardson are named Wm. A. and E. B. Walker, brothers.  These two claim that they used their best efforts to have Richardson sober up while here, but to no avail.  The certificate of Dr. Barr furnished Coroner Bevan ascribes death to delirium tremens.  As the physician was with the young man several hours before he died, an inquest or autopsy are not deemed necessary. - After Richardson's trunk was taken from the baggage room at the A-street depot and its contents examined by the Coroner in hopes of locating all the relatives of the young man, Public Administrator Batchelder took charge of the following property belonging to the deceased:  A certificate of deposit on a San Francisco bank in the sum of $200; a Winchester rifle valued at $17.50; a single-barrel repeating shotgun worth $15; a diamond ring bought at San Francisco for $140; a pistol worth $12.50; open-faced silver watch, and other effects. - Deceased was at one time employed by A. T. Hatch, a prominent Suisun orchardist, as book-keeper. - In explanation of the $1,500 legacy which came to deceased last month, Wm. Walker said to-day that it was the residue of $2,000 bequeathed Richardson fourteen years ago by a Judge Humphrey of Boston, Massachusetts.  It appears that Richardson and a son of the Judge were classmates in a boarding school near New York.  A strong friendship grew up between the lads, which ended only when young Humphreys died.  The love the father bore his son was in a degree transferred to Richardson, the classmate, and when the jurist drew up his will he remembered the lad in sum of $2,000. - The money was to be paid to Richardson when he reached his 23d year, but as a sister of the Judge came in for a life interest in the estate distribution was not made until after her death.  In the interim the estate's valuation decreased and Richardson's share was necessarily reduced to $1,500.  Richardson was a native of Weymouth, Mass.

RIDEOUT, NORMAN ABBOTT

Marysville Daily Appeal - 3/10/1906, p1 - Killed In A Mine - The Sad Fate of Ex-Mayor Norman Rideout - The Community Shocked - The Details of a Fatal Accident That Created Sorrow Everywhere - The Funeral Tomorrow. - Norman Rideout, vice-president of the Rideout Bank in this city, and one of the most popular and energetic men in the northern section of the country, was killed in the Magalia mine, located about three and one half miles from Magalia, Butte county, on Sunday afternoon.  The news of his death has cast a gloom over the entire community, and nothing is heard from all classes, but words of sympathy for his beloved wife, parents and other relatives. - The first news received in this city was through a telephone message about 4:30 Sunday afternoon announcing that while he was in the sump of the mine a piece of rock became detached from the ceiling, which was sixteen feet high, fell, hitting him on the head and breaking the bones of one leg.  As he was thought to be seriously injured a request was made that Dr. Powell be sent at once to Magalia.  His friends telephoned to Chico to ascertain if any further particulars had been received, and notifying the bank officials that Dr. Powell had left for Chico on the evening train. - A telephone message was received later at the Appeal office, that his skull had been fractured and it was later ascertained that Mr. Fogg had dispatched a messenger from Oroville to Magalia to learn if his injuries were as serious as at first reported.  At 4:20 a telephone message was received from Oroville announcing that he had died at 4 o'clock. - From J. R. Trayner, who accompanied Dr. Powell to Magalia, an Appeal reporter learned the following particulars:  Mr. Rideout was in Gridley on Saturday afternoon attending to some business at the cannery.  He went to Chico where he remained over night.  He left Chico Sunday morning on the stage, arriving at the mine, which is twenty-four miles distant, about 12:30.  After lunch he transacted some business, and between 2 and 3 o'clock went down in the cage to the 500 foot level, with Foreman T. W. Finchley, to make an examination where the men had been building a new pump stage and a new sump; men were running crosscuts from the main shaft it being the intention to timber that portion yesterday. - They found the men at work, and the man working farthest in stepped out of the right hand corner when Mr. Rideout stepped in followed by Finchley.  A few seconds later Finchley saw the deceased look up, and immediately after he was hit himself, and was knocked to the ground, being stunned by the blow.  When he came to he found two men at work removing about a ton of bed rock from Mr. Rideout's body.  The latter was soon picked up.  He was found to be unconscious and was bleeding from a wound on the top of his head.  Finchley took him up in the cage to the surface and at once sent a messenger for Dr. Lowe to Magalia, and ordered a telephone message sent to Marysville, requesting that Dr. Powell be sent to the mine at once.  When Dr. Lowe arrived he found that the case was beyond human relief.  He died at 4 o'clock without recovering consciousness.  The Coroner of Butte county on learning of the facts waived rights for holding an inquest, and the remains were brought to Chico where they were taken in charge by Undertaker R. E. Bevan, and arrived in this city at 11 o'clock. - Dr. Powell states that there was no fracture of the skull, that both legs were broken, between the knee and ankle and that there was a scalp wound on the top and back of the head.  Death was caused by concussion of the brain and internal hemorrhage, caused by internal injuries. - When the deceased was struck first he must have fallen on his back, and then the bed rock piled on to his legs and chest. - When the news of the accident first reached the city a telegram was sent to San Francisco to notify his parents, Mr. and Mrs. N. D. Rideout.  His sister, Mrs. W. E. Briggs, was also notified in Sacramento and they arrived on the Oregon express. - The funeral will take place from the Presbyterian Church, to-morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock.  The interment will take place in the city cemetery. - The flag over the city hall was placed at half mast yesterday morning, as a mark of respect to his memory, as was also the Native Sons flag over Jefferson Hall. - The following is a brief sketch of the career of one of the most progressive, enterprising and popular citizens that Marysville has ever had: - Norman Abbott Rideout was the oldest son of N. D. Rideout, the well-known banker and capitalist, and was born in Camptonville October 14, 1859.  He came to this city to reside with his parents.  He was educated in the public schools of this city and graduated from the High School in 1876.  He attended an academy at Kents Hall, Maine, and remained a year.  Later he attended the University of California, and then made a trip to Europe with A. D. Starr and family in 1881.  On his return from Europe he decided to learn the banking business, and spent some time in the banks at Oroville, Sacramento and Gridley, in which his father was largely interested.  It was in January, 1885, that he went into partnership with his father in the Marysville bank, then known as the Rideout & Smith bank, but on November 1, 1890, was re-incorporated, and became the Rideout Bank, of which he became vice-president. - At the time of his death he was one of the directors of the Northern California Bank of Savings, vice-president of the Rideout, Smith & Co. Bank of Oroville, vice-president of the Magalia Mining Company, in which his father and J. B. Haggin are largely interested. - He was president of the Citrus Fair Committee, which carried on the most successful fair, commencing on January 14, 1891, that was ever held in California.  He was chairman of the executive committee of the Marysville Improvement Association, which gave to Marysville as a monument of its industry, Cortez Square. - He was Mayor of this city in 1892 and 1893, and had associated with him as councilmen some of the best and most progressive business men of the city.  He took an active interest in the many enterprises his father was connected with, and was besides a spirited citizen who had the best interests of the city of Marysville always at heart, and who was in the front rank of every movement that would benefit this section of the country. - He was married on June 17, 1886, to Miss Corinne Kimball, daughter of C. B. Kimball of this city. - He leaves to mourn his loss his wife, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. N. D. Rideout, his sister, Mrs. Dr. W. E. Briggs of Sacramento, and a brother, Edward.  He joined Marysville Parlor, No. 6, N.S.G.W., in June, 1885, and served as treasurer for several years.  This was the only fraternal organization of which he ever was a member.

Harrington and Watts.  Riggins has a wife and family and a subscription paper was circulated around town yesterday for their benefit and that of Rines, by W. T.

Out of the Shadows
( Contributed )

Out of the shadows of sadness,
Into the sunshine of gladness,
Into the light of the blest.
Out of the land very dreary,
Out of the world of the weary,
Into the rapture of rest.

Out of to-day’s sin and sorrow,
Into the blissful to-morrow,
Into a day without gloom.
Out of a land filled with sighing,
Land of the dead and the dying,
Into a land without tomb.

Out of a life of commotion,
Tempest swift oft as the ocean,
Dark as the wreck drifting o’er.
Into a land calm and quiet,
Never a storm cometh nigh it,
Never a wreck on it’s shore.
(B.S.)

RYAN, DANIEL

Marysville Daily Appeal - Tue 8/26/1913, p5 - River Gives Up Its Dead - Remains of Victim Found Sunday at Spot Near Hammonton - After four months the Yuba river gave up its dead last Sunday when Fred Marple discovered the remains of Daniel Ryan lying beside a tree at Hammonton near dredger No. 14.  The spot had been covered with water until the stream commenced to recede, exposing the remains to view.  Coroner Kelly was notified and went out there yesterday morning and brought the body to this city, where it is being held for positive identification by Jim Crowley. - Ryan was drowned at Deguerra Point, near Parks Bar bridge, last March while he and Jim Crowley were attempting to cross the stream in a home-made boat.  When about midstream, the rude affair capsized.  Both men had been visiting a roadhouse that day and it is presumed they were under the influence of liquor.  Crowley managed to swim ashore, but Ryan went down.  The survivor notified the coroner next day, but the body could not be found owing to the high water. - The flesh was decayed away from the bones except on the left foot, upon which is encased a new high top boot.  The other leg decayed away at the knee.  An acquaintance of Ryan's stated yesterday that the deceased was wearing a pair of new high top boots at the time he was drowned.  As no other death in the river was reported during the past year, it is almost certain that the remains are those of Ryan.  Coroner Kelly was endeavoring all day yesterday to get in communication with Crowley and have him further identify the remains.

Marysville Daily Appeal - Wed 8/27/1913, p8 - Ryan Funeral - The remains of Daniel Ryan, the man who was drowned last March in the Yuba river, will be held Thursday at Smartsville.  The funeral will be under the direction of Kelly brothers.
