Marysville Daily Appeal - Tue 12/17/1901, p1 - Shooting at Camptonville:  Eugene Covey's Rifle is Accidentally Discharged and Brings Death:  Harry W. Taylor The Victim:  The Men Were Talking in "Bill" Mayo's Saloon When the Distressing Affair Occurred Yesterday - Camptonville is in the throes of another vigorous sensation. - Yesterday afternoon about half past three o'clock Harry W. Taylor was shot in the head and killed by Eugene Covey. - The deplorable affair took place in O. G. (better known as "Bill") Mayo's saloon and from all that could be learned by persistent telephoning yesterday afternoon and last night was the result of an accident, though it is said that Covey had been drinking. - From the rather conflicting reports received at this office it would appear that the truth of the matter is about to this effect: - The two men, and Leon Heintzen and Mayo were together in the latter's place, and it is said Taylor and Covey were planning a hunting trip.  During the conversation a Winchester rifle which the last named held in his hands was discharged from some cause, the bullet entering the former's head, causing death. - Mayo, who has been in poor health for some time, was so shocked that he swooned away; and so long was he in coming to that serious fears were felt regarding his recovery for a time. - Covey was placed under arrest by Constable I. D. Bray and last night was at the home of his parents under that officer's charge. - The District Attorney, Sheriff and Coroner were notified, and last evening Sheriff Bevan and Coroner Hopkins starting on their long, dark and rough ride for the scene of the tragedy. - Leon Heintzen, who with Mayo witnessed the shooting, is a resident of Forest City, though he spends a part of his time at Browns Valley, in this county. - It is said that Taylor, the dead man, and Covey were on very friendly terms; that they had never had any trouble in the past and that none occurred yesterday, their conversation having been entirely devoid of friction. - The report on the streets here last night that old man Deal's troubles and conviction had had something to do with the fatality was without any foundation at all. - Taylor was about thirty-seven years of age and a miner by occupation.  His home was about two miles from Camptonville.  He leaves a wife but no children, and one brother, Byron Taylor, a well-known resident of Browns Valley. - Covey is a young man about twenty-one years of age.  His mother, Mrs. E. B. Covey, is the telephone operator at Camptonville and his father until recently tended bar for "Bill" Mayo. - For some reason it was difficult to get any of the residents of Camptonville to express themselves on the shooting and this manifest reluctance upon their part naturally aroused suspicion down here for a time that all the story had not been told.  This suspicion was rather intensified rather than diminished when the fact became known that young Covey's mother was the telephone operator at that place.  For it was felt that if the shooting was accidental the residents would be glad to say as much in order to place the deplorable affair in the best possible light before the public.  Then, too, Constable Bray's message merely announced the killing of Taylor, suggestively adding "Covey was drunk."  But there is no reason to believe from the last accounts received by The Appeal that the shooting was other than accidental.

Marysville Daily Democrat - 12/20/1894, p1 - An Aged Lady Drowned - She Endeavored to Leap Across a Swollen Ravine and Met Her Death - The news of the sad death of Mrs. Ann Thompson, formerly Mrs. Wm. Brady, reached this city to-day, when John Lafferty, who resides near Brown's Valley, came to town to make arrangements for burial.  Mrs. Thompson met her death by accidental drowning, between 3:30 and 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. - About noon she left her home to walk to Brown's Valley, three-fourths of a mile distant, to make some purchases.  She remained at Brown's Valley until half-past three o'clock in the afternoon.  To reach the store she walked the wagon-road, but to return home she took a trail, a short cut that leads over the hills.  When at a point within 200 yards of Mr. Lafferty's place, she encountered a ravine which had been swollen by the recent rains.  It is supposed that the woman, who was well along in years, attempted to jump across the ravine, which is narrowest at the point where the trail intersects it, and that she miscalculated her ability and fell into the rapidly running body of water, and was drowned.  Her body was recovered 200 yards below the trail, in an eddy of the ravine, at 8 o'clock last evening. - Coroner Bevan said to-day that he did not deem an inquest necessary, as it is plainly a case of accidental drowning. - Mrs. Thompson leaves four children to mourn her demise, viz: Thomas, who resides at Sutter City; William, who is at present living at Bangor; Mollie, who is a domestic in this city, and Nellie, who resides at home. - Deceased was a native of Ireland, and 67 years of age.  She had resided in the vicinity of Brown's Valley since 1855. - The hour for the funeral will be announced later.

The Evening Bee, Sacramento - Monday, Aug 7, 1905 - INDIAN GIRL MAY HAVE DIED OF BROKEN HEART - Marysville, Aug 7 – An Indian girl, who, less than a month ago, was the central figure in a sensational shooting affray near Stanfield Hill in this county, lies on the slab at the Morgue to-day, supposedly the victim of consumption, but by many thought to have suffered a broken heart. - Nettie THOMPSON, as she was known to her pale face acquaintances, a sister of Sarah Thompson, who married a Chinese peddler names Jim Boo and Sarah died a short while after under suspicious circumstances. Jim Boo then transferred his affections to Nettie. This move on the Chinaman’s part met with opposition from the father-in-law, Henry Thompson, and the shooting referred to above was the result. Jim Boo was killed by a shot to the head from Henry Thompson’s rifle and Thompson suffered the loss of his leg at the knee. The latter will be tried for the killing of Jim Boo as soon as he is able to leave the hospital. The dead girl was one of the chief witnesses to the trouble and has ever since been on the decline.

Marysville Daily Appeal - Sat 6/16/1888, p2 - Deaths:  In Marysville, June 13th, Mrs. Naoma M. Trafton, aged 26 years. - Friends and acquaintances are respectfully invited to attend the funeral form his [sic] late residence on B street, between Sixth and Seventh, this (Saturday) afternoon, at two o'clock, thence to Yuba City, where services will be held.

same issue, p3 - Brutal Husband - Between 12 and 1 o'clock yesterday morning, Mrs. Henry Trafton died at her home on B street, between Sixth and Seventh, after an illness of several days, and the physician's certificate of death is to the effect that she died of scarlet fever.  Her baby, scarcely over a year old, has the same malady.  That her surroundings and treatment by her husband, however, were such as to hasten her death, is beyond question, and the neighbors and the benevolent ladies and gentlemen who called to aid her are loud in their indignant exclamations. - She has been ill for several days, and was waited on by the neighbors, but, she sent into the country for her husband, he being out at work.  He came in and immediately got drunk, and those in the locality say that more than once on Wednesday night and Thursday morning noises and cries were heard from the house.  On Thursday morning his little four-year-old girl ran out of the house and to a Mr. Harrington's, where she told that "papa was beating and choking mamma, and had whipped Sadie."  The little girl cried and said "Mamma wanted a policeman."  Mr. Harrington's little girl then ran with her to the police office, and officer Colford went up to the house.  There he found everything very quiet.  Trafton was slumbering, under the influence of liquor, and his wife said there was nothing the matter only he was drunk. - On Thursday night Trafton refused to admit Rev. E. R. Willis, and abused him, while his language to Mr. Harrington, on being told that his wife was dying, was fearful. - Dr. N. S. Hamlin, the attending physician, a few hours before she died, heard her say to the husband, "Henry, Henry, are you not sorry for what you have done?" - Yesterday a large number of ladies called, and the children will be cared for.  Trafton had to be taken away from the house in the afternoon, as his drunken demeanor was unbearable. - Marshal Maben, when spoken to, said that at present he could see nothing on which to ....[smeared]... although there was no question of the brutality of the husband. - This makes the third case of inhuman treatment of wives in this city within the last five years, and the other two - those of Edward Toal and James Fairclough - escaped with comparatively light penalties. - Demands an Investigation - Last evening District Attorney Forbes, after hearing the surrounding circumstances, concluded that it would be best to hold an inquest on the remains of Mrs. Trafton, and gave instructions to Coroner Hayes to be prepared this morning to hold the inquiry.

Marysville Daily Appeal - Sun 6/17/1888, p3 - A Shameless Brute - The death of Mrs. Trafton, and the surrounding circumstances, were subjects for many street conversations yesterday, and the universal verdict was that something should be done to a man so inhuman and barbaric, though it was generally conceded that it would take more proof than could be obtained to force the law to give him his deserts. - In accordance with the instructions of District Attorney Forbes, Dr. C. C. Harrington, assisted by Dr. Thomas Dobbins, held a post-mortem examination on the body yesterday morning.  Their return was to the effect that they could detect no evidence of violence, and that she died from natural causes. - Dr. Dobbins said that this examination was thorough, and though he believed the woman had been abused and neglected he could not, after making the autopsy, swear that there were any symptoms of previous abuse by choking or strangulation. - In the afternoon an inquest was held before Coroner Hayes and a jury, at which the testimony as summarized below was given. - Sam C. Hare said that he had frequently heard the husband and wife quarreling and talking loud. - Dr. N. S. Hamlin testified that when he saw her on last Wednesday she was in a critical condition.  Her husband was sent for and in the evening he had arrived, but was much under the influence of liquor.  He informed Trafton of her condition and he promised to care for her.  The next morning Trafton met him at the Postoffice.  He had been drinking, but informed the doctor that his wife was better and promised to be there in half an hour and accompany him to the house.  He did not come, and when the physician went to the house he found her overcome with grief, and she said she could not get well and put up with his shameful abuse.  At this point he came in, and did not deny her charges of abuse and neglect when ...[smudged]...before the doctor.  He had not given her the medicine and not even a glass of water.  When his attention was called to these facts he became enraged and abused the doctor, who, to save a scene in the sick room, left. - Dr. Hamlin then said that the discoloration around her throat was such as is usual after death, and a sore throat, in some degree is attached to every case of scarlet fever, but that in this instance he believed that it was violence which had caused the throat to assume its condition after death. - In closing, he said that the remote cause was scarlet fever, and that the immediate cause was neglect and exposure. - Dr. C. C. Harrington testified to having made the post-mortem examination. - Officer Colford on being sworn said that on Thursday he met two little girls on D street, and that the youngest -  Trafton's child - said that her mamma wanted me to come at once, as her papa was choking mamma.  I went up and into the room where the sick woman was, and she told me she wished I would take him away and lock him up, that he treated her like a dog.  Trafton then came in and told him not to mind her as she was crazy.  She replied by asking the officer if he believed her crazy and he said no but that he believed him to be.  He told Trafton that she was very sick and for him to treat her properly.  He followed the officer out and was abusing the Salvation people who were there and was told to shut up.  Mrs. Trafton begged the officer not to go.  He walked down the street, leaving word to be advised if Trafton did anything more. - Samuel Harrington testified that he and his wife had waited on Mrs. Trafton until midnight on Wednesday, and stayed with her on Thursday and until she died on Friday morning.  He knew that he had ill treated her previously, and in this case he thought she would have recovered had she had anyone but a brute to wait upon her. - Mrs. Samuel Harrington testified in substance as her husband had, but that the deceased had frequently told her of the abuse her husband heaped upon her and particularly since he had arrived form the country to wait upon her. - Mrs. S. A. Jones, Mrs. J. S. Plumb, Miss Abbey Korin and Mrs. Jennie Hyde, ladies who had waited on the deceased and knew of her husband's brutality, testified to having heard the deceased tell of his abuse during her last sickness. - The jury then retired and shortly after brought in the following verdict, which was preceded by the usual preamble:  "We find the deceased was named Naoma Trafton, a native of Illinois, aged 26 years.  That she came to her death on Friday, June 15, 1888.  That we find and believe that her death was caused from neglect and want of proper treatment from her husband, H. E. Trafton, and that he is highly censurable for his neglect in not administering the medicine according to the directions of the physician, while he was left in charge, and we believe that he should be punished for such neglect according to law." - The funeral of the deceased occurred yesterday afternoon, the remains being placed in a lot in the cemetery at Yuba City. - The two children, one of whom is down with the scarlet fever, is being cared for by friends for the present. - Yesterday afternoon and evening Trafton paraded up and down D street, evidently trying to attract attention and looking as though he had done something bright, instead of being implicated in the death of his wife.

Twogood, one of California’s pioneers, died about 2 o’clock Saturday morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs. George Edwards, on Butte Street near Laurel. Though Mr. Twogood had not enjoyed perfect health in recent years his condition was not recently such as to cause alarm, and Friday evening he was able to attend the evening chores about the home as was his custom. During the evening he suffered some pain, presumably from indigestion. At 10 o’clock Saturday morning, Mrs. Twogood questioned him concerning his condition, and he said that he was quite comfortable. Less than an hour later, Mrs. Twogood became alarmed, because of his heavy breathing, and found him unconscious. He died a few minutes later. Deceased was a native of New York, aged 83 years. In the early fifties he came to California and settled in Yuba County, where, during the course of thirty-two years’ residence, he acquired a wide acquaintance-ship, and to know him was to prize him as a friend.

It is said that in Yuba County no man stood higher in the estimation of all classes than Gaylord---Twogood.

San Francisco Call - 3/9/1902 - Kindly Priest's Sad End - Rev. Father Twomey Is Drowned Near Smartsville - Tries to Ford Stream Swollen by Heavy Rainfall - Vehicle is Overturned and He Sinks to His Death - (Special Dispatch to The Call.)  Marysville, March 9. - Rev. Father Twomey, pastor of the Smartsville Catholic Church, while attempting to ford a small mountain stream this morning, was swept from his buggy and drowned.  Particulars of the accident were received in this city by telephone this afternoon. - Father Twomey, driving a double team from Smartsville to Dobbins, approached Dry Creek at 10 o'clock this forenoon, at a point about two miles west of the old electric power house and six miles from Browns Valley.  He attempted to ford the stream, which was high and running swiftly.  M. V. Hendricks, who lives near there, called to the priest and warned him of the treacherous condition of the stream, but the warning evidently was not heard above the roar of the rushing waters. - When the current struck it the vehicle was capsized and the rig was swept down the stream a distance of 100 yards, where it lodged against some willows.  Hendricks hurried to the rescue, but before he reached the bank Father Twomey disappeared in the surging waters.  The horses were rescued, but the buggy was demolished. - Hendricks summoned assistance and search was commenced to locate the body, which was found late this afternoon, lodged in some brush two miles below the scene of the accident.  Coroner Hopkins left for Smartsville this evening to hold an inquest. - Rev. Father Twomey was a native of Clonakelty, County Cork, Ireland, and 38 years of age.  For the past fourteen years he ahs served in the capacity of pastor of  the Catholic church in Smartsville, Yuba County, and his kind, genial manner won the love and respect of the residents of the mountain town and that section of Yuba County.  He was often the guest of Father Coleman in this city and the news of his drowning was a shock to the many friends he had made here.  He was an active and devoted Christian worker and noted for his kindly acts. - Father Twomey was busily engaged in establishing a church at Dobbins Ranch, and made many trips between Smartsville and that place.  Often had he crossed the little stream at the scene of to-day's tragedy, but the heavy rains of this morning had swollen it to a torrent which his team was unable to struggle against and in which no man could survive, because of the rocks and drift.

Father Twomey, pastor of the Smartsville Catholic Church, which occurred Saturday morning while he was attempting to ford Dry Creek, a few miles from Browns Valley, in Yuba County, came as a shock to all who learned of the sad event and has caused sincere sorrow. - The details, as brought out at the Coroner's inquest, are substantially the same as those published in The Call this morning.  Father Twomey left Smartsville between 7 and 8 o'clock Saturday morning and was to have preached at Rackerby to-day.  He started by way of the Peoria schoolhouse, expecting to hold service there at 10 o'clock Saturday. - It was necessary to cross Dry Creek where there was no bridge, and in attempting to ford the little stream, which was flowing bank-full, the buggy was capsized.  The clergyman was carried to his death under the capsized vehicle.  After a few minutes the rushing waters moved the buggy in such a manner as to permit the imprisoned body to escape and it was carried two miles down the stream before it was recovered, having been in the water more than thirty hours. - Father Twomey was loved by all the residents of the foothills irrespective of creed.  His religious field was large and his success was most encouraging.  A large concourse of sorrowing friends will attend the funeral, which will occur in Smartsville Tuesday morning at 10:30 o'clock.
