Marysville Daily Appeal - 11/16/1913, p1 - Oldest Justice in California Dead: John Seward, Aged Pioneer, Dies After Life of Success and Reverse: Anchored in Feather River Opposite Marysville Over Half Century Ago - John Seward, a resident of Yuba county since 1849, and justice of the peace of West Bear River township, died last evening at the age of ninety-one years. His home was near Oswald, where he had resided since the early '70s. During his residence in California as a forty-niner, packer, rancher, cattleman and county officer, John Seward knew success and reverse. He had often been confronted with both and showed the courage of true manhood whenever the latter faced him. In times of reverse he bore the brunt of loss and started to build again with the remaining tools left him. - He was born in Kennebac [sic] county, Maine, on May 22, 1822. In 1849 he, in company with twenty-six adventurers, purchased an old whaler and after stocking it with three years' provisions they set sail for California. On September 17, 1849, they anchored in the Golden Gate and after loading their provisions into six small boats they proceeded north. - When opposite about the present site of Marysville they anchored their crafts in the Feather River and started for the mines. At a point along the Yuba river they built a sawmill and named the station Kennebec, in honor of the old New England county home. Seward with another companion pushed forward into the wild recesses of the mountains, and at what is now Downieville they located a claim which yielded them $75 per day. Numerous other claims were located and they extracted $80,000 from the river bottoms. - The deceased then forsook mining and operated a pack train into the mines, but later sold the animals and kept a grocery store at Parks Bar. From there he went to a point on Bear river and started in the cattle business, but in 1862 his ranch was overflowed and his cattle and horses drowned. Not discouraged he located near the present site of Oswald, which he made his permanent home. He was the first man to bring the Percheron stallion to this part of California. - John Seward was the oldest justice of the peace in California. He is survived by Mrs. Lawton of Wheatland, a sister of his wife, who died in 1901. The funeral arrangements, which will be announced later, are under the direction of R. E. Bevan & Son.

Sacramento Union - 5/4/1854, p2 - Another Murder - Marysville, May 3 - 9 p.m.. General John Sharp, of Sharp's Ranch, on the Sacramento road, was shot about three o'clock this afternoon. A party of men were cutting timber on his land, and when ordered to discontinue, fired on him, killing him instantly. He was alone at the time, and entirely unarmed. No arrests have been made up to this time.
Sacramento Union - 5/6/1854, p2 - Surrendered Himself - It seems that Sullivan, who recently shot Mr. Sharp near Marysville, delivered himself up to the Sheriff.
Sacramento Union - 5/10/1854, p3 - Examination of Sullivan - The examination of Sullivan for the recent murder of Sharp, near Marysville, was commenced before Justice Singer in that city on Monday. It seems, from the testimony of a partner of the deceased, that a portion of the ranch on which the deed was committed, is in dispute. On the day previous to his death, Sharp crossed Bear River with a party of friends, to the disputed territory, where he found Sullivan and others cutting wood and making rails. - After some words, says the Express, the latter party abandoned the premises, and Mr. Sharp's party set fire to the rails, and they were consumed - Sullivan threatening when he left. - On the following day Sharp returned, with others, to the spot, armed, and after some search in the wood and underbushes, came across Sullivan and party, who had arrived before them. When the two parties first saw each other they were 25 or 30 rods apart. Sharp and his friends advanced eight or ten rods, when he remarked that he would go alone and have a talk with the other side, and requested his companions to stop. Before starting he gave his pistol and belt to his son. He then advanced some rods, though not far enough to be out of the hearing of his friends, to hold a parley with the enemy. As he came up Sullivan said: "Sharp, what did you come here for? You have a pistol and have come to kill us, have you?" Sharp replied, "No, I came to talk with you - have no arms." Sullivan, or some one of the party, witness could not swear positively which, fired. Mr. Sharp fell, and died in five minutes. - The examination was continued.
Sacramento Union - 5/13/1854, p3 - Concluded - The examination of witnesses in the case of Sullivan, at Marysville, has been concluded. The argument of counsel was to have been heard yesterday. Limmerman, who had been implicated as a particeps criminis, was discharged.
Sacramento Union - 5/15/1854, p3 - Sullivan - The examination of Sullivan, at Marysville, for the killing of Sharp, was concluded on Friday and resulted in his being held to bail in $8,000 to answer the charge of manslaughter.

Sacramento Daily Record-Union – December 2, 1886 – A Yuba County Suicide – A correspondent of the Record-Union, writing from Challenge Mills, Yuba County, November 29th, says: “A young man to-day received a letter from his girl, and in ten minutes afterwards shot himself through the heart. His name is T. Sherrer, 24 years of age. He has been in the employ of A. M. Leach, of the Challenge Mills, for eight years, and for the past four years has acted in the capacity of head clerk. He leaves his aged parents broken-hearted. He was a young man of engaging manners, prepossessing appearance, steadt habits, respected by all, and had many warm friends in the community.

Sacramento Daily Record-Union – December 3, 1886 – The Cause of the Rash Act – A correspondent of the Record-Union gave some facts in yesterday’s issue relative to the suicide of young Shearer at Challenge Mills. The following, from the Marysville Appeal of yesterday, throws some light upon the cause that led to his rash act: Information was brought to this city yesterday of a somewhat sensational suicide at Challenge Mills on the evening previous. The surmises formed a theme for gossip during the day among those who claimed, or thought that they had become acquainted with the facts surrounding the deplorable incident. From the source which an Appeal reporter secured his information, it appears that the suicide’s name was Thomas Shearer, a young man about 26 years of age, and employed at the mills as book-keeper by A. M. Leach. His nature was said to be very impressionable, and that he became infatuated with a young lady living in the locality, who received his attentions without the last idea of being serious. He apparently was serious, though, but had not the courage to make himself explicit, and when he ascertained that she had accompanied a gentleman friend to a social gathering, while on a visit in this city, wrote a letter full of condemnatory language, which the young lady resented in a reply, and the receipt of which is supposed to have so worked upon him that he took his own life.

Daily Democrat - Mon 5/24/1897, p1 - Killed In A Mine - Of Two Miners Engaged in Blasting at Browns Valley One Meets His Death - The Other Painfully Injured - As the result of an accident which occurred on the lower level in the [blurred] mine at Browns Valley about 10:30 o'clock last night the remains of a man named Ed. Sherman occupy a slab at the morgue in this city, while a young man named William Shea, a fellow employe of Sherman, is suffering painful injuries at the hotel in the mining camp. Both men were employes of the Webb Mining Company, and went to work last evening with the shift which reports at 6:15 o'clock. - Shea and Sherman had been detailed to prepare a series of blasts in a stope and at 10:30 o'clock had the powder charged holes, six in number, ready for the match. They proceeded in the usual manner to discharge the blasts, using a long fuse which burns sufficiently slow after being ignited to give the miners time to retreat to a safe distance. - When the match was applied last night Shea walked hastily away, as usual, and had proceeded quite a distance before he looked back. He then discovered, to his dismay, that Sherman for some reason, not explained, was not following him. The next instant the first explosion occurred and he could observe Sherman's body as it was thrown forcibly to the floor of the stope by the awful concussion, and force of the flying debris. - Though the explosion caused the candle, which Shea was carrying, to go out, he was undaunted, and with great courage and presence of mind, he hastened back to his unfortunate comrade, intent on carrying him to a safe place before the remaining charges were exploded. He had placed Sherman's form over his shoulder and was hastening away when the other blasts exploded in quick succession. Though the flying ore and gravel showered about the two men, inflicting fresh wounds on Sherman and almost disabling his rescuer, the bottom of the shaft was reached while Shea in his weakened condition was yet able to give the alarm. - The two men were hastily taken to the surface and Supt. Farnum telephoned to Dr. Powell to come at once to assist Dr. Williams, the company's physician, in relieving them. Sherman died in less than an hour, before the Marysville physician reached him. An examination of his body showed numerous perforations made by the gravel and ore. One wound that was necessarily fatal was found in the back to the left of the spinal column. Here a large piece of rock had entered and passing through the body, made its exit in front in the lower portion of the abdomen. Internal hemorrhages brought about the poor fellow's death. - The brave Shea, who risked so much to save his companion from the danger of the final explosions, escaped luckily. While he has many slight wounds, the one most serious is in the calf of the left leg, from which Dr. Powell removed a large piece of rock which had lodged in the muscle next to the bone. Dr. Powell says Shea will recover. - Sherman, the dead man, entered the employ of the Webb Company quite recently, arriving at Browns Valley from Nevada City about two weeks ago. Last month he was employed in a mine at Mokelumne Hill. - The remains will be taken to Nevada City to-morrow for burial. In a memorandum book found on his person the address of two brothers-John Sherman of Crookston, Minnesota, and Herman Sherman of Norway, Michigan-was written, besides the addresses of numerous friends. Deceased is supposed to be a native of Sweden. In a letter found in his pocket mention is made of $328.91 which is Sherman's share of an estate distributed in the old country. He had prepared a telegram directing the Swedish Consul at San Francisco to forward the amount to him on receiving it. - Sherman was about 28 years of age and Shea is about the same age. - Coroner Bevan held an inquest at Browns Valley, the following acting as jurors: W. M. Jefferds, J. Palmer, Joe Picard, H. Caviller, J. W. Brady, J. F. Gundry, John Rhoda and Thos. Hutchins. The verdict was that death was caused by internal hemorrhage and laceration of the bowels. - Sherman was a member of Court Garfield, No. 9, Foresters of America, of Nevada City.

Marysville Daily Appeal - 12/30/1884, p3 - The Dead Body of a Woman Found in the Sands of the Yuba - A Chinaman, while raccoon-hunting in the Yuba river bottoms south of Marysville yesterday afternoon, came upon the dead body of a woman at a point 150 yards below the bridge and thirty or forty yards from the river bank. The Chinaman immediately informed special officer Miller, who in turn, notified Coroner Hopkins and the body was brought in to the undertaking rooms at the Coroner's office. The body is that of a woman of about 50 years of age, 5 feet 6 inches in height, of stout build, weighing from 200 to 225 pounds. The face is full and round, double chin, small nose and grey eyes. The hair is light brown, streaked with grey, and done up on two short braids at the back. There are no teeth on the upper jaw excepting two molars on the right side. The lower front teeth are in place but there are none other on the lower jaw. A part of the scalp, six inches long by four wide is torn from the skull. There is a deep cut at the base of the skull penetrating to the bone. The right leg is broken above the knee. The back is covered with blue splotches resembling powder or ink marks. There was no clothing whatever on the body when found. A slight decomposition has set in on the lower limbs. The body has the appearance of having been in the water eight or ten days. It had undoubtedly been floated down by the recent high water and left in the position in which it was found when the waters receded. Several theories were advanced regarding the matter, one of which was that murder had been committed. The skull, however, is not fractured, and all the wounds on the head could have been made by sharp rocks or timbers, and were probably made in that way. Two or three persons thought they recognized the body as that of Mrs. Sherman of Brandy City. Eleven days ago Mrs. Sherman and her son fell from a foot log into the North Fork of the Yuba, between Brandy City and Indian Valley. The son was unable to save his mother. All the circumstances go to show that this is the body of the unfortunate woman-Mrs. Sherman. It is probable deceased came down with the flood. The head, being unprotected by clothing, was cut in the manner described above, by striking against jagged rocks. There was no abrasion or discoloration of the skin where the left was broken, indicating that the limb had been protected by clothing when broken. There was no cuts anywhere on the body, showing that, while in the water, it must have been protected by clothing. It seems probable, therefore, that the clothing had been taken from the body by some person - Chinaman or Digger Indian - since its lodgement in the sand. A telegram was sent to Camptonville by the Coroner to see if anything definite could be ascertained. [ The burial book for the Marysville City Cemetery shows an entry for Dec. 29, 1884 of Mrs. Sherman, aged 45 years, female, white, married, place of death Yuba River, cause of death drowned.]

SHERMAN, WILLIAM & STEVEN
Marysville Evening Democrat – 11/06/1913 – SHERMAN BROTHERS FOUND DEAD IN THEIR LONELY CABIN – With strong belief that they were murdered, word reached Marysville shortly before noon Thursday that the dead bodies of Will and Steven Sherman were found this morning by a friend named Travis in a lonely cabin occupied by the men at a point in the mountains a few miles northeast of Strawberry Valley. A long distance call to The Democrat from J. Bean, owner of the hotel at Strawberry Valley, this afternoon conveyed the information that every indication pointed to the fact that the two brothers had been brutally murdered and the assassin had had plenty of opportunity to escape. How long the men had been dead, Bean said, had not been determined definitely but indications are that the bodies had been laying in the cabin for two or three days. The first information of the finding of the bodies by Travis reached the coroner’s office in this city over the telephone about 11:30 and a similar message was received by the sheriff’s office about the same time, although the advice received lacked particulars and did not say how the men came to their death. Instructions to investigate the matter were immediately wired by the officials in this city to Deputy Sheriff A. Beaver and Justice of the Peace Henry Coupe at Challenge to investigate the matter, but up until late this afternoon no further particulars had been received. Additional advice is expected tonight, however, and if the circumstances are believed to warrant it, authorities in this city will go to the scene of the crime.- BROTHERS WELL KNOWN – The Sherman brothers were well known in the eastern section of the county. They were formerly engaged in mining, but for some time past have been engaged in making shingles and cutting wood for posts in a lonely part of the forest between Strawberry Valley and North Star. The isolated condition of the cabin is thought to be the reason why the bodies were not discovered until today. – MYSTERY SURROUNDS CRIME – As far as known the two men had no sworn enemies, yet it is hardly believed that robbery could have been the motive of the crime. The whole affair appears to be deeply shrouded in mystery that probably will never be cleared. If the men as believed from the information at hand, were taken unawares in their cabin and murdered, plenty of time has elapsed for the assassin to escape from the country and the authorities will be at a great disadvantage in solving the matter. From some untraceable source a report came this afternoon that the men had been drinking and probably quarreled with fatal results, but this theory, along with some belief that the victims might have entered into a suicide pact, is scouted (?). People in the mountains have accepted the murder theory as certain. (Note: Historic records show William Sherman and Freeman Sherman but no Steven residing in the area. Possibly Freeman was known as Steven. The marker (metal tag ) and the existing Strawberry Valley Cemetery records show Bill and Freeman Sherman in one grave.) (Transcribed & submitted by Brad Sharpe.)Marysville Evening Democrat – 11/7/1913 - BROTHERS MAY HAVE DIED FROM EXPOSURE – No additional information has been received in this city by the authorities in connection with the finding of the dead brothers in a cabin near Strawberry Valley Thursday morning. Word has been anxiously awaited by both the sheriff’s and coroner’s offices, but up until late this afternoon no new developments were reported by the deputies in the mountain section, which has led to the belief that nothing has been found in the investigation thus far conducted to indicate that the men were murdered, as it was first supposed. In ordering an investigation yesterday instructions were given that the authorities here be notified in order that they could go to the scene if the circumstances were thought to warrant it, and it is the lack of further advice that has developed the “ natural death “ theory. There is still much mystery surrounding the deaths of the two men, however, and it would be a strange co-incidence that they should die at the same time and at the same place. It was planned to hold the inquest in the mountains this afternoon and it is expected that this inquiry will clear away some of the doubt that has existed since the discovery was reported yesterday. More was learned today about the life and habits of the men. One of the brothers is said to have been a “ squaw “ man at one time, and both are said to have been addicted to drink. They lived in the mountains most of the time, but are said to have been coming to this city to spend the winter in the county hospital for the past few years. The only theory, besides murder advanced today for their death is that they became helpless from over-indulgence and died from exposure. (Note:It was Cyrus Travis who found the deceased brothers. At first it appeared that a crime had been committed but as Cyrus told the story, a pan of mushrooms was found on the stove and it was likely that the brothers died from eating poisonous mushrooms. – Information provided by Dennis Travis and Mary Lou Lauck, grandchildren of Cyrus Travis.)

Daily Appeal – 11/081913 – DOUBLE FUNERAL FOR BROTHERS – Murder Theory Blew Up at Coroner’s Inquest Held Yesterday – As predicted in yesterday’s Appeal, the theory of murder regarding the death of Freeman and Bill Sherman at North Star was absolutely wrong, and the coroner’s jury returned a verdict yesterday to the effect that death resulted in both cases from exposure and alcoholism. The inquest was held by Acting Coroner Henry Coupe of Challenge, and an autopsy was performed by Dr. Clark of Challenge. The coroner’s jury made a thorough investigation and the verdict met the approval of all interested in the case. No marks on the bodies indicated that any violence had been exercised. The deceased brothers were strongly addicted to drink and had been on a long debauch just prior to their death. A double funeral will be held this morning at Strawberry Valley.

same issue, page 3 - Death of an Old Citizen - Patrick C. Slattery Passed Away Early Yesterday Morning - Surrounded by his Family - He Took a Prominent Part in the Commercial and Political Welfare of Marysville and the Surrounding Country - The Man of Much Generosity - Hon. P. C. Slattery, one of Marysville's most honored and respected citizens, died at his residence on Seventh street at a quarter past 6 o'clock yesterday morning, of congestion of the brain. Mr. Slattery was apparently in his ordinary health of late on Sunday when he took up the collection in St. Joseph's Cathedral. On Sunday evening he enjoyed a game of cards in the family circle and was as jovial as ever. On Monday morning he heard the bell of the Catholic Church ring and he hastened to get out of bed, thinking that he had overslept himself, as he was a very early riser. After reaching the floor he was overcome with dizziness and fell heavily to the ground, striking his head against some hard substance. Dr. Dobbins was sent for, and Mr. Slattery apparently recovered. He spent the day at home, and walked with his daughter, Kate, around the lawn. Towards evening he again wavered and retired to bed at 11 o'clock. - On Monday night he became unconscious, and never spoke again. At times he seemed conscious, and able to understand the prayers that Father Coleman was repeating. - His case from the moment he grew unconscious was hopeless, and Doctors Dobbins, Powell and Schlessinger, who held a consultation, gave the family no hope. - He died surrounded by those he loved best on earth-his wife, and children. It was a painless death, but a sad one to his friends who witnessed it. - By his death Marysville loses one of the best of citizens. Many a widow and orphan child will shed tears over his grave, for he was their benefactor. - Beautiful deeds, like beautiful thoughts, whether inscribed on the printed page, or transferred to the artists' canvas by the hand of genius, should live forever. - The flag at the City Hall was at half-mast on yesterday, as was also the flag at the county Court-house. - Ex-Mayor Slattery was a member of St. Joseph's Society from its infancy, and was on several occasions elected President. He was also Chairman of the committee which makes arrangements for the annual picnic of the Society. - Patrick C. Slattery was born March 17, 1829, in Tralee, County Kerry, Ireland, it being one year after his illustrious fellow countryman, Daniel O'Connell had passed through the English House of Commons, his famous Catholic emancipation bill. At a very early age, Mr. Slattery was left fatherless, and being the oldest child, he started in at once to try and help his poor mother and the younger children. He was apprenticed to a leading butcher in his native town and learned the trade after five years. At the expiration of his apprenticeship he started for New York, where he arrived in the year 1852, and found no difficulty in getting a situation, in the celebrated Fulton market, as he was considered not only one of the best stall-men, but an excellent judge of cattle. - About two years after arriving in New York he married his present wife, and took the first step on the road to happiness and prosperity. - About this time there was great excitement about California, and the young butcher left the Fulton Market, and his good wife and child (C. D. Slattery) came to Marysville, where his cousin, Father Dan Slattery, was rector of the Catholic Church. - He arrived in Marysville in 1859, and after working for wages for several months sent to New York for Mrs. Slattery and the baby, and when they arrived he started a small stall for himself in the present City Market. To prove how economical he was, he would buy a beef and a couple of sheep, and his wife would help him to kill, and he then did the cutting up. - After a short time he was able to hire an assistant and kept on increasing his business. When all the other butchers, with plenty of means at their disposal, but less ability and judgment as butchers than Mr. Slattery, failed, he prospered. Night and day he kept working, never knowing when to stop, and his stalls were always found with lamb, veal, etc. Many people would wonder where he got them at such seasons. As he made money he invested in land, and soon became the owner of the Eton, or old Park ranches and Simmerly ranch, to which he made additions, all of which now contain about 800 acres. - He opened a packing house on E street, and some years later purchased the extensive premises known as "Slattery's Packing House." He also opened a branch shop in Yuba City. - Of his generosity it is not necessary to say anything, but even outside of what his noble wife did, many a ton of meat, in the past twenty-five years, have been sent to the poor of the city of Marysville and surrounding country. An Appeal representative once heard a man who had worked for him a number of years, say that he could swear that he never refused man, woman or child, whether deserving or not. - He gave freely to all churches, no matter of what denomination. He will be missed by many of his own countrymen, to whom he was ever generous and kind. His purse was always open to help the land that gave him birth. - Mr. Slattery will be missed and mourned by every man, woman and child in this community. - He was elected County Treasurer in 1879, and took office January, 1880, having defeated the late E. C. Ross by 166 votes. He also served as Alderman, and was elected Mayor of the city in March, 1888, serving for two years. - He leaves a wife, two sons, and two daughters, to mourn his loss. He has one brother, Cornelius, in this city, a brother Maurice, in Tralee, who resided in this city some years ago.

Appeal Democrat - Sat 1/21/1928, p1 - Smethurst, Pal of Mark Twain, is Buried Today - The funeral today at the Peoria cemetery in Browns Valley of George W. Smethurst marks the passing of one of the most romantic figures in the state. - Born in Philadelphia, 94 years ago, Smethurst filled many roles and lived a life full of incident and history. As a boy he showed a strong taste for mechanical engineering which led him eventually to the Mississippi river where he became an engineer on one of the famous steamboats that carried as passengers, the adventurers that made the life on the packet boats, the scene of many a story. Among those Smethurst met on the boat was a young, curly-headed pilot who invariably attracted everyone to his cabin by his talent for humorous story telling. This young pilot named Samuel Clemens became famous under the pen name of Mark Twain. Smethurst was able, being possessed of a remarkable memory, to relate many tales of the young pilot. - Later Smethurst moved to Nevada and became an active recruit in the ranks of the pony express. His tales of adventures with the Indians and the wild races across the continent were most thrilling. Smethurst was one of the few remaining members of the pony express riders. After settling in Browns Valley, George Smethurst while plowing a field brought to the surface some gold bearing quartz which led to the discovery by him of a gold bearing ledge. - From this he mined a small fortune which kept him in comfort for the rest of his days. The mine with its hoist and stamp mill has been kept in good order ever since Smethurst removed enough gold to satisfy his needs. - At the age of 94 passes one of the last remaining Mississippi steamboat engineers of the days of Mark Twain, the cub pilot, and probably the last of the Pony Express riders. - The religious rites were administered by the Rev. John W. Winkley, pastor of the Methodist church. Walton Langdon was the vocalist, with Mrs. E. E. Monson as accompanist. - The body was taken to Peoria cemetery by Lipp & Sullivan and was interred in the family plot there. The pall bearers were R. Bruce, J. Bruce, Arthur Rice, E. Binninger, T. Binninter and Z. Zbinden.

Marysville Daily Appeal January 4, 1895 page 1 - WAS IT MARY ANN? - Statement That the Young Woman is Dead--THE ASPHYXIATION ROUTE - Not a Very Definite Establishment of Her Identity---The Letters of Inquiry - A few days ago an account of a newly married couple being asphyxiated appeared in the San Francisco dailies, and accompanying it were the following death notices: - In this city, December 30, 1894, Mary, beloved wife of the late John Smith, and daughter of Nicholas Powers, and sister of Alice and Jennie Powers, a native of Pennsylvania, aged 22 years. - In this city, December 30, 1894, John, beloved husband of the late Mary Smith, a native of Ireland, aged 28 years. - A lady who resides in San Francisco wrote to her father, a well-known resident of this city, informing him that the woman who was the victim of the deadly gas burner was the daughter of Nicholas Powers who worked at the Buckeye Mills for a number of years, and had been married to Henry Farenkam, for a number of years employed in the Kimball stable. - An APPEAL reporter tried to locate Farenkam yesterday but was informed that he has not resided in this city for some time, but had been in town the early part of the week. Those who are intimately acquainted with Farenkam stated that he had never been divorced from Mary Ann, and that there must be some mistake, as she was a native of Marysville, not of Pennsylvania, as stated in the death notice. Her father's name is correctly stated as are also the names of her two sisters, and her age is about correct. - The following particulars appeared in last Monday's December 31, 1894 San Francisco Call page 10, column 5: from Ralph Clouse: - "Sunday is known as "asphyxiation day" at the Morgue, for a Sabbath seldom comes without a case of suffocation by coal gas. Many of such cases come from lodging houses, where no attention is paid to gas burners. The fuddled or ignorant transient retires late Saturday night, turns out the light and goes to bed ignorant of the fact that he has turned the stopcock too far, and the deadly fluid is filling the room. Next day his body is discovered and the Coroner's deputy reports that he found gas flowing from a burner in the apartment. - "A newly married couple, John Smith and wife of Berkeley, were among the burner's victims yesterday. they came to this city Saturday afternoon and spent the evening at Michael Mitchell's saloon, 823 Howard Street. Smith was a railroad employee and was related to the saloonkeeper. He was married a week ago to the buxom girl, and took her to the city with him for the purpose of introducing her to his friends. Late at night the Smiths made their way to the ferry only to discover that the last boat had crossed the bay. They returned to Mitchell's and were invited to pass the remainder of the night in a furnished apartment adjoining the saloon. The invitation was gratefully accepted, and Mitchell went home leaving the gas burning in the room in which the young couple had retired. When the saloonkeeper entered his place yesterday morning the light in the room occupied by the guests was out, and the apartment filled with gas and the bride and groom lay dead together. The stopcock on the burner had been turned on a little too far. - "A physician was summoned by Mitchell, and he declared that the Smiths had been dead two hours." - About a month ago the unfortunate young woman wrote to a friend in this city to ascertain if Henry had any money and if he still owned an interest in the stallion, but she never said a word about being divorced or having been married again. Henry and his wife did not lead a very happy life as he got into trouble with her several times when she resided in the Fourth Ward. - Until Farenkam comes to town again it will be impossible to ascertain if he knows anything about the divorce proceedings having been instituted, or if he was aware that his wife was married again. - A well known resident of this city informed an APPEAL reporter last night that Mary Ann Powers was born in Pennsylvania and that she came to this city with her mother after her father, Nicholas Powers, had obtained employment. Her sisters, he stated, were all born in this city. He knew nothing, however, about her being divorced from Farenkam. (firstname.lastname@example.org)

From the Oakland Tribune – 1/01/1939 – Excerpts from “The Knave” - On the passing of William T. Spilman, son of B.R. Spillman – “From one close to him I get this”- “His father, Colonel B. R. Spilman, came from Kentucky in 1850 and went into the hotel business at Strawberry Valley. The hotel was the Columbus House, and part of it is still standing and called by that name.” – “Then, from a granddaughter of Spilman” – “Those were stirring times in the early ‘50s’. Grandfather was a tall, commanding Kentuckian. When parades were held in Strawberry, he stood near our Flag with his hand on his holster, in case any man refused to walk beneath it. And he meant it. Hot headed? Yes’ But those were the kind who made our great California.” (B. S.)
NOTE: In the 1860 census B. R. Spilman is shown as a Hotel Keeper, as well as Joseph F. Edmonds. It is clear from the Mountain Messenger, in an article from 1862, that Jenkins and Wheeler purchased Columbus house from J.F. Edmonds in 1862 and that Edmonds had been proprietor for the 4 years preceding the sale. J. F. Edmonds had married B. R. and Margaret Spilman’s daughter in July of 1857 and it appears likely that B. R. Spilman and J. F. Edmonds were operating the hotel jointly at the time. From the San Francisco Daily Globe – 8/03/1857 – Married – On the 29th ult., at Strawberry Valley, O. F. (J. F.)

Nevada State Journal (Reno, Nevada) May 11, 1948 - Frank Stall Body Found - Inquiry Demanded by Relatives - Relatives of Frank W. Stall, 78 year old mining executive, said yesterday in Sacramento they would demand a full investigation of his disappearance and death. - Mr. Stall's body was found near Chico, Cal. Saturday. He had been missing since Dec. 8 when he went on a quail hunt in the Richardson Springs area. - Alpha Filcher, Stall's niece, declared the family had been fearful "all along that he met with foul play." - Mr. Stall, widely known throughout Nevada, was the object of an area wide air and ground search immediately following his disappearance, and relatives continued the search even after law enforcement agencies gave up. - His body was discovered in the top of a fallen tree by two fishermen. The body showed no marks of external violence. - Authorities theorized that Mr. Stall had fallen into Big Chico creek in attempting to cross it while it was swollen with rain waters last December. - A broken leg suffered in a mine cave-in in Nevada more than 35 years ago provided the most positive identification. - The leg was treated at Stanford-Lane hospital in San Francisco and the fracture was pulled together with a silver staple. An identical fracture and staple were found on the body discovered Saturday. The body was unclothed, apparently by action of the swift flowing waters of the creek. - Mr. Stall, a native of Marysville, Calif., became interested in mining when he participated in the Yukon gold rush in 1901. He returned to California in 1905, and shortly thereafter came to Nevada. - He was one of the first men to prospect the Santa Rosa mountain range in northern Humboldt county, and in 1906 discovered the rich National gold mine near McDermott. It was there he received the broken leg which led to he identification 35 years later. - Funeral services will be conducted in Sacramento at 2 p.m. Thursday from the Clark-Booth-Yardley funeral home.

STALL, JAMES PETERS
Marysville Evening Democrat - 1/21/1916, p1 - Dreams of Youth and Old Age Shattered for Third Time by Unkind Hand of Grim Reaper - Death has parted an aged couple in the Yuba County hospital, who through sickness have for the past several years been unable to carry out their matrimonial intentions, in the death of Miss Emma Stammer, who died at that institution Friday morning. The deceased was 80 years of age and was a native of England. She was a former resident of Strawberry Valley, but has been in the county infirmary for some time. Only recently she contracted pneumonia which resulted in her death today. - There is a peculiar incident connected with this aged woman, mention of which has been made before. Miss Stammer and Charles Prindle, an aged man also confined in the county infirmary, have been close friends for many years. Several years ago while residing at Strawberry Valley they made preparations to be united in marriage, but one of them was siuddenly [sic] stricken ill and the marriage had to be postponed. Later after the recovery from sickness, preparations were once more made for the wedding, with the result that the hand of fate again stepped in and prevented the marriage, the other one being suddenly stricken ill. - Later both the man and woman, after much privation and suffering, were removed to the Yuba County hospital, where they have since been confined. About a year ago Miss Stammer and Mr. Prindle told Steward Bell that they desired to be married, and all arrangements were made for the third attempt to have the nuptial knot tied. Miss Stammer had a plain but neat wedding dress made, and everything was in readiness, both of the aged couple being in good health and the best of spirits and believing that at last they would enjoy knowing that they were man and wife, when just a day before the ceremony one of them was again taken suddenly ill and the marriage postponed for the third time. - Now when they again hoped to be able to be united in marriage, death has stepped in and forever parted them in this world. The old man expressed much grief over the loss of his aged friend. Funeral of Miss Stammer will be held Sunday, and interment made in the city cemetery under the direction of R. E. Bevan & Son.

They had known each other for many years at Strawberry Valley before the road of fate led them to the hospital. - Arrangements for the funeral are being made by R. E. Bevan & Son.

Daily Democrat - 1/22/1900, p8 - Death of John Stevenson - Another Landmark Answers the Summons and Joins the Silent Majority - After long hours of unconsciousness, resultant of the stroke of apoplexy which visited him last Wednesday night, John Stevenson breathed his last at the family residence on Second street at 8:30 o'clock Sunday evening. His passing was painless. Once or twice during his illness he seemed to recognize the members of his family who waited on him, and on these occasions, brief though they were, he gave signs of being resigned to his fate. In his demise the community has lost a good citizen and business man, and his family a kind and indulgent father. He had interests which afforded employment for many of the laboring class, and these, too, will greatly miss him. - John Stevenson was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, May 8, 1825, and was, therefore, nearing the 75th year of his age when the end came. He was the son of James and Catharine (Sponogle) Stevenson, natives of Pennsylvania. At the age of twenty years he engaged in business for himself, running a line of omnibuses from Cincinnati to Fulton, Ohio. At that time troops were being recruited and drilled at the latter place for the Mexican War. - In 1849 he ran a daily line of stages to Dayton in the same State and also transported passengers and mail to Indianapolis, Indiana. In 1852 he embarked for California, coming by way of the Isthmus of Panama and arriving in San Francisco in July of that year. He immediately began mining on the principal rivers, meeting with fair success. In 1856 he built a mining canal from the South fork of the Feather river to Mooreville, twelve miles in length, and costing about $100,000, he being the principal owner. From that time to his death he was engaged in various pursuits. Of late the wood and coal business and his farming interests in the vicinity of this city engaged his attention. - He was an active Odd Fellow from 1847, when he joined Fulton lodge No. 112 of Cincinnati and at the time of his death he was a member in good standing of Oriental Lodge, No. 45, I.O.O.F. of this city. The flag of the latter society floats at half mast in respect to his memory. - In 1870 he was married to Nicomedes Botillen and was the father of seventeen children, only three of whom are living: Catalina (Mrs. W. L. Vance), Charles and Hazel; also his step-daughter Elisa (Mrs. Horace H. Walling of Placerville) to whom he was a kind and loving father from her infancy. - The funeral services will be conducted in I.O.O.F. Hall Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock under the auspices of Oriental Lodge. The remains will lie in state from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The burial will be in the family plot City cemetery.

He immediately began mining on the principal rivers, meeting with fair success and in 1856 built a mining canal from the South Fork of the Feather river to Mooresville, twelve miles in length and costing about $100,000, he being the principal owner. From that time he has been engaged in various pursuits in this city, latterly carrying on a wood and coal yard as well as farming the old McCoy ranch.

He called a spade a spade and always gave an honest, open and candid opinion on all public affairs regardless of consequences. He despised sham of any kind and was always honest in his dealings with his fellow men. He was a fair specimen of the rugged young manhood that came to this coast in 1849. But few of them are left."

Just a few weeks ago she was visiting at the home of her son, J. L. Swank, in Colusa, and seemed quite cheerful at that time. - "The Angel of Death is ever an unwelcome visitor, yet he must call on us all sooner or later. Death is no respector of persons and shows no special favors to old or young and we can but be ready when he comes. Being of a most loveable disposition, Mrs. Swank has ever been kindness itself and many a heart has been made to feel lighter by her sympathy and love. She is gone and another home is without a mother."

SYKES, JAMES ANDREW
Marysville Evening Democrat - Thu 1/2/1913, p1,5 - Deaf Man Ground To Death By Western Pacific Train - Was Walking on Right of Way When Treacherous Iron Monster Suddenly Crept Upon Him - J. A. Sykes, an expert millwright, who has been an inmate of the Yuba county hospital in this city for the past three or four years, met with a horrible death on New Year's day by having his body terribly mangled by a Western Pacific freight train, near the signal tower and crossing of the Western Pacific and Southern Pacific roads, Ninth and K streets. Sykes was a native of Ohio, 65 years old and unmarried. - The train that brought death to the millwright is known as No. 93 and was in charge of Conductor McCracken. The fatality occurred at about 2 o'clock. A short time previous to the accident Sykes, who was given permission to leave the hospital a few hours before by Steward Bell, talked to a brakeman on the train, which was switching in the yard. He had been walking along the track in the vicinity of the switch tower, which is only a few blocks away from the hospital, when noticed by the trainmen but in what manner he fell under the wheels of the train will perhaps always remain a mystery, as no one witnessed the accident. - Probably Intoxicated - Sykes had a strong appetite for liquor and it is believed, however, that he reeled and fell under the wheels of the train while it was switching, or walked too close to the track and was drawn into the vortex caused by the passing cars. The finding of the bleeding and lifeless body beside the track a few minutes after the brakeman had been talking to Sykes was the first intimation that the train crew had that an accident had occurred. At this time the engine was uncoupled from the cars and was backing up and it is a matter of conjecture whether Sykes was killed by the engine alone, or was run over by the freight cars. The fragments of a broken whiskey flask were found in his clothing after the accident. - Partially Deaf - The dead man was partially deaf and it is the opinion of some that the train backed into the victim as he walked along the right-o-way of the railroad. The chest of Sykes was caved in, his left leg severed at the ankle, his right foot mangled, and his face and body otherwise horribly mangled. Shortly after the accident the coroner's office was notified and the body brought to the morgue, where an inquest will be held as soon as possible. - Several years ago when Sykes first came to Marysville, and for a long time thereafter, he was regarded as one of the best millwrights in the state. It was under his direction that the machinery in the new Buckeye flour mills of this city was installed about 20 years ago. Later he supervised numerous other important jobs and for a long time was head mechanic for the Sperry Flour company in this city. - Drink Worst Enemy - Drink was the worst enemy of the dead man, who became incapacitated from performing his regular labor a few years ago. No longer able to follow his vocation he entered the hospital, at which institution he has had charge of the ordinary mechanical work for the past few years. - He is said to have relatives residing in Philadelphia, with whom he has not been in communication for the past 28 years. Among the relatives is said to be a brother who is quite wealthy. It is also believed that the dead man was a member of the 121st Ohio Infantry during the Civil War. - In his effects have been found the addresses, "L. P. Degen Belting company, 260 Mission street, San Francisco," and "James Wagner Mfg company, 165 Beale street, San Francisco," and these are thought to represent people and firms for whom he had worked during his lifetime. - An effort will be made by Coroner Kelly to communicate with relatives before making any disposition of the body.
Marysville Appeal - Fri 1/3/1913, p8 - Freight Train Kills Old Man - Jack Sykes Is Victim of W. P. Locomotive Wednesday Afternoon - Jack Sykes, an inmate of the county hospital, was run down Wednesday afternoon by a Western Pacific freight train, near the tower on the crossing of the Southern Pacific and Western Pacific tracks, a short distance above the depot at this place. - Just how the man came to be killed is unknown, as no one has been found who saw the accident. He was horribly mangled and mutilated, his head being crushed and one leg cut off. - Coroner Kelly was notified as soon as the accident had been discovered and the body was taken to the morgue, where it will be held until an inquest can be held. - Deceased was a native of Ohio and was 65 years and two months old. He was a single man. - Sykes was engaged in conversation with a brakeman of the train that killed him just a short time before the accident occurred and while the train was switching. The old man was seen walking along the tracks in the yard, but no one seems able to account for him falling under the wheels of the train. The train that crushed out his life was No. 93 and was in charge of Conductor McCracken. - Coroner Kelly will hold an inquest over the body tomorrow.
Marysville Appeal - Tue 1/7/1913, p1 - Sykes Funeral Yesterday - The funeral of John A. Sykes, who was killed by a Western Pacific freight train in this city on January 1st, was held from the mortuary chapel of Kelly brothers yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Interment in the city cemetery.
Marysville Appeal - Wed 1/8/1913, p1 - Accidental Was Death of J. A. Sykes - Inquisition Is Held and Jury Renders Verdict Before Coroner Kelly - "Accidental death" was the verdict of the jury convened by Coroner Kelly to inquire into the death of John A. Sykes, an inmate of the county hospital who was killed on the railroad track of the Western Pacific New Year's day. Coroner Kelly presided over the inquisition and Attorney Carlin was present to watch the proceedings for the railroad company. There was no evidence divulged that has not already appeared in the newspapers. - The engineer of the freight train that caused the death of Sykes was one of the witnesses. The brakeman of the same train also testified. The railroad employe told the jury that they did not know that Sykes had been killed until they saw his body near the track, that they were shunting on the road at the time between the hospital and the station of the Western Pacific company and did not notice the deceased. They told of finding the body and of notifying the authorities. - Steward Bell of the county hospital testified that he identified the deceased as being John A. Sykes by a number he wore on his clothing. He further testified that the deceased was somewhat deaf and that was probably the reason that he met his death - he did not hear the approaching train. Attorney Carlin told Steward Bell that he thought it would be an excellent thing if he would instruct the inmates of the hospital not to perambulate about the railroad track; that when they have to go to town or elsewhere they should take some other route. If this advice were followed it might be the means of preventing future accidents and possible deaths. - It developed during the inquisition that the deceased had permission to leave the hospital on New Year's day and that he was not out without permission. At the conclusion of the inquisition the jury returned the following verdict: - "We, the jury, find the deceased, John A. Sykes, a native of Ohio, sixty-two years of age, came to his death in the city of Marysville January 1, 1913, from injuries received by being struck by a freight train known as No. 95 of the Western Pacific railroad company; and we further find said death to have been purely accidental and exonerate the train crew from all blame." - The jury was composed of the following: Harry J. Brul, foreman; Jack Graham, Harry White, J. P. Sullivan, F. M. Lipp and Charles Powell.
