Daily Appeal – 5/28/ 1907, Pg. 8 – Sudden Death of Jacob Zinc – Wheatland, May 27.---Jacob Zinc an old resident of this town was found dead by the side of the road ten miles east of here yesterday afternoon. Zinc was engaged in hauling wood and it is supposed that he was attacked with heart disease and fell off his wagon. His remains were brought here and taken in charge by Undertaker Bevan of Marysville. Coroner Kelly will come down from Marysville this morning and hold an inquest.  (B. S.) 

Democrat - 5/28/1907, p1 - Dead Body of Jacob Zink Found:  Old Pioneer Meets Sudden Death in Road East of Wheatland - Word was sent to Undertaker R. E. Bevan and Coroner J. K. Kelly late Monday afternoon that the dead body of Jacob Zink, a well known pioneer of this part of the state, had been found in the public road ten miles east of Wheatland.  Undertake Bevan went to Wheatland immediately and this morning Coroner Kelly went down to hold an inquest. - Mr. Zink had gone to the hills with a team to haul some wood to town.  James Worl of Nevada City was riding a horse along the road when Mr. Zink's team caught up with him.  There was no driver on the wagon so Mr. Worl went back along the road to fine Mr. Zink, he having recognized the team.  Wood was scattered all along the road, showing that the team had run away.  The body of the aged man was found some distance back and Mr. Worl, after finding that life was gone, noticed from the tracks left that Zink had run for probably a quarter of a mile.  This would indicate that the gentleman had gotten off his wagon and that the team had run away, he following it afoot.  The exertion brought on the attack of heart trouble that caused his death.  He had been subject to fainting spells the past few years. - Deceased was one of the best known men in Yuba county.  He was a native of Baden, Germany, but came to California in 1854 and had resided in Yuba, Sutter and Placer counties since that time.  He was a farmer for many years and retired from that vocation with a sufficiency of worldly goods to allow him to spend his latter years in comfort and quiet.  He was 75 years old, but was strong and active, and thought nothing of hauling his wood from the foothills to Wheatland, a task that requires considerable labor. - Mr. Zink was married twice and his second wife survives him.  He was a member of Valley Lodge, No. 107, I.O.O.F., of Sheridan, and the funeral will be held under the joint auspices of that lodge and Sutter Lodge, No. 100, of the same order at Wheatland.  Services will be held in the Christian church Wednesday at 2 o'clock and the interment will take place in the Wheatland cemetery.

Daily Appeal – 5/29/1907, Pg. 2 – DEATH OF JACOB ZINC – Particulars of His Sudden Demise Near Town of Wheatland – Wheatland, May 28.---A shadow of sorrow was cast over this community yesterday when word was telephoned in from the Hunt ranch that the lifeless body of Jacob Zinc had been found lying in the public road about eight miles east of here. The deceased left home early Monday morning for the foothills after a load of wood, and on returning home in the afternoon the unfortunate occurrence which ended the life of this honored citizen took place, and as he was alone at the time of his death the best the public can do is to pass only an opinion as to the cause of the accident. It is supposed, however, that the team ran away and in an attempt to capture them the deceased overtaxed his physical strength and died from exhaustion. His tracks were found where he had followed up the road some 200 yards in the direction of the way the team went. -  The horses were first seen about four miles from where the body was found still going at a fast gait. The wood was scattered along the road, and the wagon was badly damaged. - The remains of the deceased were brought to town last evening, and this afternoon a coroner’s inquest was held, and tomorrow at 2 o’clock funeral services will take place. -  Mr. Zinc was about 72 years of age and for some time has been in feeble health. He was of German descent, and had been a citizen of this State since 1852. He was widely known and universally respected. -   Mr. Zinc was married twice and his second wife survives him. He was a member of Valley Lodge, No. 107, I.O.O.F., of Sheridan, and the funeral will be held under the joint auspices of that lodge and Sutter Lodge, No. 100, of the same order at Wheatland. Services will be held in the Christian Church Wednesday, at 2 o’clock, and the interment will take place in the Wheatland Cemetery. (B. S.)
