Sacramento Daily Record-Union – 6/21/1878 – DIED – Marysville, June 19---Frances C. Voss, 26 years.  (B. S.)


Marysville Evening Democrat - 2/10/1915, p1 - Ex-Sheriff George Voss Is Quite Ill At His Home - The condition of George H. Voss, ex-sheriff of Yuba county, who has been confined to his home in this city for some time on account of illness, is causing considerable alarm among friends. The former county official has been in ill health for several months, and his condition for the past few weeks, has been anything but encouraging, it is said.  It was on account of poor health that he resigned his position last summer, several months before the expiration of his second term as sheriff of Yuba county.  After his resignation he went to the mountains for several weeks in the hopes of benefitting his health, which many believed he had accomplished.  His illness at the present time, however, is discouraging to himself, relatives and friends.

Marysville Evening Democrat - 2/22/1915, p1 & 8 - George H. Voss Will Be Missed By Many Warm Friends - Popular Ex-sheriff Died As Results of Injuries Received In Hop Field Riot - Universal regret was expressed by every citizen of Marysville Sunday morning upon learning of the death of Ex-Sheriff George H. Voss, who departed this life at 9 o'clock Saturday night, following a lingering illness of several months.  His death can be directly traced to the effects of the terrible beating he received at the hands of a mob during the Wheatland hop riot on August 3, 1913.  Never of robust constitution his health rapidly declined after the injuries of that fatal day, which he was beaten with clubs and nearly kicked to death by the infuriated mob that caused the death of two peace officers on the Durst hop ranch and also resulted in the killing of two of the mob by peace officers deputized by Sheriff Voss. - Voss had to give up his duties as Sheriff of Yuba county on July 6th last because he did not feel equal to the task, and he spent several months in the Yuba mountain section in an effort to regain his health.  For a time he did appear to improve but it proved but a fleeting hope and soon he became reconciled to the inevitable. - Deceased was born in Yuba county, about fifteen miles from Marysville, February 23, 1861.  He was of German descent.  He received his early education in this city but at the age of 14 he began to learn the marble cutters trade, serving an apprenticeship with Condon Bros.  After completing his time he worked for his employers as a journeyman until 1899, when he started in business for himself and established a shop on D street near the site of Merle Bros. garage.  He continued to follows his trade up to the time he was elected as Sheriff in 1902. - Voss was a most popular official and could no doubt have continued in office as long as he desired.  He was elected three times and all but finished his third term when he resigned only lacking about six months.  He had announced his intention to again be a candidate for the fourth term when his ill health made him reconsider his intention and offer his resignation. - As a public official he had always performed his duties like a man without fear or favor.  His universal courtesy was never known to fail and he was liked by all who had business dealings with him.  He was most considerate of the rights of others and in this respect treated all prisoners with kindness.  He was held in high esteem by his fellowmen and as a tribute to his popularity he was presented with a handsome diamond studded Sheriff's badge upon his first taking office as Sheriff.  It was ever one of his most valued possessions. - Voss was a member of the National Guard, having joined Company C, Eighth Infantry, in 1899 [1889?].  This company was afterward changed to Co. D, Second Infantry.  He was elected second lieutenant of the company in December, 1891, and he was elected to the captaincy in 1896.  During the railroad strike of 1894 Voss served with his company in the vicinity of Sacramento, guarding the railroad bridge that crosses the American river.  In 1898, the time of the Spanish-American war, his company was called out for active service and on July 7th was mustered into the California Volunteers as Co. L.  Voss was commissioned by Governor Budd as Captain of Co. L. and was stationed at Angel Island until January 28, 1899, when the company was mustered out.  Voss remained in the militia for five years longer as commanding officer of Co. D. but resigned in 1904.  He was also prominent in fraternal orders, being a member of the Native Sons, Elks and Foresters. - He was married to Miss Alice Cunningham in this city several years ago. She preceeded him to the grave, having died December 17, 1911.  His surviving relatives are his brother Joseph and a sister, Mrs. Rosenthal of Portland, Oregon. - No one ever heard George Voss utter a harsh word in speaking of another and if he ever had an enemy it is not known by friends.  Being of a pleasant disposition and never complaining of his illness, he was a man who endeared himself to every one he met.  None knew him but to love him and in his passing a vacancy will be felt in the hearts of many warm friends in Yuba county. - The funeral will be held from his late home Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock with Rev. Father Coleman officiating.  Friends and acquaintances are invited.  Kelly Bros. have charge of arrangements.
