PENDOLA, Nicholas January 3, 1891 Mariposa Gazette
On Friday morning of last week, Nicholas
one of Bear Valley's oldest and most respected citizens, was called to
that unseen realm," From whose bourne no traveler returns." The funeral
took place on Sunday afternoon, at 1 o'clock, and was largely attended.
Throngs of people came from Mariposa, Hunter's Valley, Coulterville,
and other sections, attesting the worth of deceased, and extending kind
sympathy to sorrowing relatives. Mr. PENDOLA was a man of unblemished
and wonderful kindness of heart-- ready at all times to assist the
and unfortunate. As a husband and father he was devoted and
as a friend sincere and true. His death adds another
link to that long chain of deaths that is so rapidly closing from view the strange eventful history of early life in the mines. Truly, that large assemblage which gathered round that noble old pioneers last resting place, on Sunday afternoon, was a mighty eulogy on the life of Nicholas PENDOLA. He was born in San Maurizia de Monte, County of Repallo, Italy, in 1829. In 1853 he married the wife whom he now leaves a widow. When the great gold strike was made in California he, too, like, other daring and dauntless pioneers, left his native home, bade adieu to the hills and dales through which he roamed in childhood days, and came to the shores of the golden west in search of the precious metal. He came across the briny deep by way of Cape Horn, and on reaching San Francisco, came directly to Bear Valley and labored in the mines with great success, for several years. With the fortune he had thus accumulated he established a general merchandise store and did a thriving business in the early days when Bear Valley was in the zenith of its prosperity. Deceased was a very energetic and enterprising man, and by his death Bear Valley suffers a great loss. He leaves five children, viz, Mrs. Mary TRABUCCO, Mrs. Rosa CANEPEA, Charles, Stephen and Louisa. They are all promising young men and women and are well equipped for the great drama of life.
CLARKE, John F. January 31, 1891 Mariposa Gazette
Another Pioneer Gone.
Our people received a severe shock last
evening when the news was brought to town, that ex-Sheriff John F.
had been drowned Sunday evening, in the river above Merced Falls. As
as we have been able to learn, the circumstances of his death are about
On Sunday evening a Mr. THOMPSON, who lives on the other side of the river, had been at CLARKE's place and started about nightfall to return home. Mr. CLARKE walked him to the landing where his boat was tied, and remarked that he would stand and watch him safe across. Twice during THOMPSON's passage across the stream, Mr. CLARKE hailed him to ask if he was all right. Just as Mr. THOMPSON was about to land the boat, he in someway lost his balance and fell into the water, but soon scrambled out and went on home, and knew no more of Mr. CLARKE until next morning searchers came to see if he knew anything of his whereabouts. It is supposed that Mr. CLARKE hearing fall into the water, plunged in to rescue him, and being in feeble health, was perhaps, seized with cramps and must have sunk immediately. He surely diid not see THOMPSON regain the land, as no call for help was heard. His body was found on Tuesday in a hole about twenty-five feet deep.
John F. CLARKE has been too long a citizen of Mariposa county, not to be known to every man and women here, while the list of his friends is very long, while the names of his enemies would be but few. For over fourteen years he was Sheriff of the county, and his character for honor and integrity, is without blemish. He was kind to the poor and unfortunate, and his act of plunging into the river to rescue his companion, was typical of his nature. His body was brought to Mariposa, Thursday and after funeral services by Rev. W. A. BOOHER, at the residence of M. NEWMAN, the Masons and Native Sons formed into procession and conveyed the remains to the Masonic cemetery, where he was laid to rest besides the mother he had so fondly loved. He leaves a loving sister to mourn his loss. The funeral was largely attended from every part of the county.
JOSSELYN, Carrie January 31, 1891 Mariposa Gazette
Death of Carrie JOSSELYN
Word was received here last Saturday night, of the dangerous illness of Mrs. Carrie JOSSELYN, at Tulare, and her mother Mrs. Thomas DOWNIE, left early Monday morning to find her daughter better, but the poor girl was buried before the mother arrived. Mrs. JOSSELYN was born in this county, and most of her life was passed here, until the last four years. She was a general favorite with all of our people, and many tears will fall over the death of pretty Carrie BISHOP. She was married some seven years ago to A. J. JOSSELYN, and was the mother of three children, two little girls being left with the father. Her death is a sharp, sudden blow to her family and friends, for among all who knew her, there is none who has ever said " I am her enemy."

FISKE, Frank April 11, 1891 Mariposa Gazette
Our All Wise and Loving Father, in his infinite wisdom, has summoned from our midst our esteemed fried, Frank FISKE, who by kindly nature, generous qualities and courteous manner, endeared him to all with whom he was associated. One who has proved himself in every way worthy of our respect and regard, and one whose memory we long will cherish. Frank is dead; stricken down in the very springtime of life, and in the first flush of young manhood, deprived of whatever joys and pleasures a long life might have afforded; he is also spared its trials and troubles. In his death, his parents have lost a fond and devoted son; his brothers and sisters a affectionate brother, and the community an honorable young man; but we assure them in this, their hour of sad bereavement, that we share their sorrows. But at such a time, words are but an outward expression of sympathy, yet would we commend them for consolation to Him, who doth not willingly afflict, and who hath said:" Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted."
Leaves have there time to fall,
And flowers to wither at the north wind's breath.

Temple was notified of the accident, and he at once started across the
mountain, to hold an inquest and help to convey the body home. The
in that locality is very rough and the kind hearted men who gathered at
the mine, had to carry the remains of the unfortunate man over two

buried in the public cemetery. He leaves a widow.

A Sad Accident.
One of the most depressing accidents which
has happened here for a long time, occurred at the Malone mine, about
miles from Mariposa, last Saturday evening, near five o'clock. Mr.
CASTAGNETTO and a Chinaman were engaged in stoping from the lower

it. His fellow workers hastened to him at once, but he never spoke, and
life was extinct in less than five minutes from the time the rock fell.
His body was taken at once to his home in Bear Valley, where his grief
stricken wife and three little children awaited the sad home coming.
news also fell with cruel force on his aged parents and devoted
and sisters. Mr. CASTAGNETTO was born and raised in Bear Valley, and
loved and respected by a very large circle of friends, and his sudden
terrible death cast a gloom over the entire community. He was a son of
Mr. and Mrs. Dominico CASTAGNETTO of Hunter's Valley, who appeared
unable to realize that the crushed, helpless form before them, was
handsome and beloved boy, Frank. People gathered from all parts of the
county to pay last tribute of respect to his memory, and there were
tears shed as coffin was lowered from view. The sympathy of the

A SAD RESULT.

as to kill coyotes if any came there way. They stopped a while at the
place where the accident occurred. Miss Lottie HUNSACKER was handling

the knee shattering the bone. He was brought to town and everything

ADAMS, Rufus August 15, 1891 Mariposa Gazette
Death of Rufus ADAMS.
All of our townspeople will remember Rufus, the son of Mrs. Georgiana ADAMS who has lived here for so many years. Rufus was the only son left her, two others having died long ago. He left Mariposa about ten years ago, and has been living at or near Hollister, most of the time since, and has ever been a kind and helpful son, although so long absent from his family. Below we publish extracts from a letter written to Mrs. ADAMS by E. E. HOLBROOK, sheriff of San Benito county:
Hollister, Cal., July 24, 1891.
Dear Madam: Although I am a stranger to you, yet it becomes my sad duty to inform you of matters relating to your son Rufus. Previous to the 3rd of last May he had been in my employ about two years. Since May, up to one week ago, he has been engaged in baling hay. A week ago yesterday, he caught cold in the hay field, and quit work and came to Hollister. Two physicians were in constant attendance upon him, and everything was done for him, that willing friends could do, or that money could command, but without avail, for on the evening of July 23rd, without a murmur or a struggle, the spirit of your son, Rufus, passed away from this world. I remained at his bedside until the last. During my acquaintance with Rufus, I always found him to be honest and industrious- a generous, whole-souled man, who was ever ready to lend a hand to one in need, no matter whether friend or stranger- a man that possessed a just pride, and was esteemed and respected by all who knew him, which fact was evidenced by the large number of friends who cared for him during his last days. His expenses during his illness were paid by his friends, who also purchased a lot in the Odd Fellow's cemetery, where he was laid to rest."

ONEAL, John R. September 26, 1891 Mariposa Gazette
A HORRIBLE FATE.
John R. ONEAL, an old settler in the neighborhood of Twin Springs, and well known throughout that portion of the county, was found dead, on Thursday of last week in the woods two miles east of his place. Mr. ONEAL had a good mountain ranch, and had lived alone many years. He employed most of his spare time in splitting shakes for sale. He was last seen about a month ago, when he was at the Post Office at Grant's Springs. Some three weeks ago Albert REYNOLDS called at his house, but found no one at home, but noticed that things looked as if ONEAL had been gone sometime, as food which had been left on the table was moldy. Last Tuesday REYNOLDS again went to the house, and found things exactly as they were, at his former visit, and also saw that his ax and saw where gone. A searching party was organized, and every tree on ONEALS land, where shakes had been made, was visited, but no trace could be found. They then began to look elsewhere as he was known to have bought trees, on other lands, and on Thursday, his body was found. A tree in falling had caught one of his legs, in such a manner, that the poor man could not extricate himself and there he suffered and starved to death, almost within sight and hearing distance of some men, who were cutting logs, on a ridge near him. There were signs of the awful struggle he had made in trying to dig himself out but his leg was badly crushed, and he was to feeble to extricate himself. The body was badly decomposed showing that he had been dead a long time. He was in the habit of marking his calendar every day and the last entry was on August 8th, but it did not certain whether that was the date, on which the terrible fate overtook him. Mr. ONEAL, was an inoffensive kind hearted man and had no enemies. He was unmarried and was a native of Tennessee. His age was 55 years.

DODSON, S. P. October 31, 1891 Mariposa Gazette
A Sudden Death.
Last Monday afternoon between 3 and 4 o'clock. Mr. T. J. WILCOX of White Rock found the body of Mr. S. P. DODSON of Bridgeport, lying besides the road near the home of Wesley HELM. Mr. DODSON was on his way to Merced, and had been met by several persons along the road, all of whom had spoken to him, but none of them noticed anything wrong with him. He had stopped to rest and eat his lunch, when, apparently, a sudden attack of heart trouble overcame him, and death must have been instantaneous, as there was no trace of even the slightest struggle. Mr. DODSON was an old settler of Bridgeport, having lived there nearly, or quite thirty years. He was a quiet, inoffensive man, and attended to his ranch and stockraising, giving very little trouble to anyone. His son and daughter living in San Francisco, were sent for immediately. The funeral took place at Bridgeport, at 2 o'clock Wednesday afternoon.

ORME- RICHARDS marriage November 14, 1891 Mariposa Gazette
Old Hearts Wooed.
John ORME, Sr., an old and respected
of Mariposa county, and Mrs. C. RICHARDS, living in the vicinity of
were married a few days ago. Each is in the neighborhood of sixty years
old, and when the candidates for matrimonial honors appeared before
Clerk WILLIAMS for a marriage license they besieged that officer with
many questions that he almost gave up in despair, the work of filling
the blank. " Now you'll fix that paper so Mr. ORME can't get away from
me, wont you?" asked the blushing bride, her face almost touching the
as she leaned over the railing to hear his answer. " I want this thing
done right," she added, and then straitening to her full height looked
her prettiest. The groom equally anxious took hold of her hand and the
two then departed apparently the happiest couple that ever left the
House. - Madera Mercury.

Mrs. Mary CASTAGNETTO.
Friday evening of last week the wife of Dominico CASTAGNETTO, of Hunter's Valley, died after a short illness. She was quite an aged lady, and had spent many years of her life in the town, and vicinity of Bear Valley, where she was well known, and beloved for her many deeds of kindness, and of charity. This is the second death inside of six months in the CASTAGNETTO family. A son, Frank having been killed by a cave in the Malone mine, last spring. She leaves a husband and several children to mourn her loss as well as many friends. Her funeral at Bear Valley, on Sunday was said to have been the largest that ever occurred there.
WINDSOR, Joseph December 12, 1891 Mariposa Gazette
Very few who saw poor Joe WINDSOR on Thanksgiving Day, here in town, thought that in a week from that time, he would join the silent majority. But on the mourning of December 5th, he answered the summons, which comes to all at some time. He was not well when he was in town, but thought it only a bad cold, and did not take proper care of himself, and it ran into pneumonia. Mr. WINDSOR was a quiet, industrious young man, who had lived his entire life within a few miles of here, and who numbered many friends, both among the country and townspeople. He was kindly cared for by relatives and friends, but he could not rally from the dread disease. He leaves one sister, Mrs. Nancy FISHER, to grieve him. His large funeral on Sunday, was an evidence of the good will borne him.
COCHRAN, Ruggles S. December 12, 1891 Mariposa Gazette
Ruggles S. COCHRAN.
The news which reached town, last Friday night, telling of the death of R. S. COCHRAN, was a shock to all of us. It had been just a week since he was on our streets, and although complaining of a cold, no one suspected him seriously ill. He went out to his home on Sherlocks, and on Tuesday sent into town for his wife, who had been stopping with Mrs. FITZHUGH, to come home, as he was sick. Late Friday afternoon, Mrs. COCHRAN drove hurriedly into town, for medicine and to take her daughter home from school. They drove as fast as their horse could go, but within five minutes after they reached home, Mr. COCHRAN coughed, and in so doing ruptured a blood vessel. and died immediately. He had first taken la grippe, which turned into pneumonia and thus terminated a useful life. Mr. COCHRAN was an early settler in Mariposa, coming here in the fifties, and his whole life since then, has been passed in the immediate neighborhood of Mariposa. He had long been a member of the I.O.O.F. and Rebecca Lodges, and was a faithful, conscientious brother, doing all he could for the upbuilding of the orders, and trying in every way to do his duty to all. He was a good citizen, and will be missed in the community, as well as in his family. He leaves a devoted wife, and three children, besides two sisters, Mrs. Charles PEREGOY, of Mariposa, and Mrs. L. J. STREETER, of Fresno, to mourn his loss. He was buried, Sunday, under the auspices of the Odd Fellows, and his funeral was very large.
COWIN, John December 12, 1891 Mariposa Gazette
Mr. John COWIN, an old settler of the Hornitos country, died very suddenly Sunday morning, at the residence of Mr. Peter GORDON, from la grippe. Mr. COWIN was a kind hearted old man, and for many years was associated with Mr. Jas. SIMPSON in stockraising, near Indian Gulch. He was a native of England, and, we believe, was without relatives in this country. He was buried Monday afternoon, in the public cemetery.
CASTAGNETTO, Delida December 12, 1891 Mariposa Gazette
Mrs. Delida CASTAGNETTO.
One of the saddest things we have to chronicle, this week, is the death of this beautiful young mother. Our readers will remember the sad death of her husband, Frank CASTAGNETTO, last May by a cave at the Malone mine, and all will be grieved by the sudden loss of the young widow. She was at the home of her father-in-law, in Hunter's Valley, and was suffering a cold when her mother-in-law died two weeks ago. Not being a very rugged women, disease soon had its way with her, and last Sunday night, she passed to the other side leaving three little children to the care of relatives. She was so young, and had her little children dependent on her and it seems very cruel to hear that she has been taken from them. Her death cast a gloom all over the homes in Bear Valley, and many sad hearts followed her to her last resting place besides her beloved husband.
ZINKAND- FUNDERBURK marriage December 12, 1891 Mariposa Gazette

Another of the old settlers of Mariposa passed away, last Saturday night, after a short attack of pneumonia. Mr. MELLO was well known here, and in early days was proprietor of the Franklin House, one of the hotels of Mariposa. For many years he has lived a few miles from town on a small ranch, where he has supported himself by his garden and wood. Death has been very busy in the MELLO family, this being the seventh to die, within the last four or five years. Two young children are left at the ranch while a grown son, the only one remaining of his first family lives in San Francisco. Mr. MELLO was buried in the Catholic Cemetery Monday afternoon.
GARRITY, Mary H. December 19, 1891 Mariposa Gazette
Death of Mrs. Mary H. GARRITY.
The death of this estimable lady which
at the home of her son-in-law Hon. J.M. CORCORAN, Wednesday night, was
unexpected just at this time. She had been an invalid for many years,
was so often dangerously ill, that when it was reported last week, that
she was sick, no one supposed the end was so near. For upwards of
years she has been a patient sufferer, and although nursed tenderly and
cared for, most devotedly by her daughter and family, yet many times
suffering has been so great, that she would have gladly welcomed death.
She was ready for the summons, and on Wednesday night, when the divine
hand beckoned, the tired body made no resistance, and the freed spirit
departed so gently that the devoted daughter sitting by her side knew
the exact moment of dissolution.
Mrs. GARRITY was born in Dublin Ireland seventy years ago and resided at Salem, Mass., until 1860, when she came to California, where her husband had preceded her. For thirty-one years her home has been in Mariposa, and though for so many years she has been to much of an invalid to mingle in the outside life she did not lose her interest in the welfare of those around her. She was a devout Catholic, and on Friday afternoon her remains were laid to rest in the Catholic cemetery at the lower edge of the town.
RHODES, Silas December 26, 1891 Mariposa Gazette
Death of Silas RHODES.
Silas RHODES, one of the old pioneers of Mariposa, passed away last Wednesday morning. Mr. RHODES and an aged brother lived near the town for many years, until about four years ago, when the brother died, since which time the poor old man has seemed almost lost and has never stopped grieving for him. A few weeks ago, ill health compelled him to enter the County Hospital, where he received kindness and attention, but the infirmities of age, told against him, and he succumbed to the effect of age and disease. He was an industrious man and a skilled mason, and in earlier days did much work around the county.

BEAVER-BATES February 6, 1892 Mariposa Gazette
Another case of marrying in haste, to repent through all eternally, was consummated last Monday, when Miss Clara BATES of Fresno Flats eloped with John BEAVER a handsome masher who had been located at Raymond for some time. The young lady is said to be quite pretty, and a general favorite and was singled out for a victim by BEAVERS. She was under the legal marrying age, and her father opposed the match, but the couple snapped their fingers at the old gentleman and ran away to Fresno where they were married. On Wednesday following a summons from the Superior court of Hollister was served on BEAVERS, where a former wife seeks a divorce and also custody of a four year old daughter. BEAVERS stands a pretty fair chance of becoming a guest of the State on a charge of bigamy, while the foolish young girl, who trusted him, instead of listening to the wisdom of parents can wail over shattered hopes and a ruined life. A temporary suspension at the other end of a rope. would serve such fellows as BEAVERS right.

"Another of the pioneers of California who
themselves with its history passed away, when Ethelbert BURKE died
at his home, 924 Powell street.
He had in a very large degree those qualities of heart and character which go to make a man loved and respected by his fellow men, and regretted when he is gone. His disposition was unusually gentle, his nature quiet and charitable and his unswerving honesty was often proved during the trials of official life.
He was a Virginian by birth. In youth he went to Ohio, where he began the practice of law. In 1849, he came to California by the overland route and went at once to the mines. He was elected to the Legislature from Tuolumne county in 1824,* and two years later became the first Judge of the Thirteenth Judicial district. This office he held for several years, resigning in 1863 to accept the appointment of Deputy Collector of the port of San Francisco, which position he held for sixteen years. He was then elected Justice of the Peace, and held that office seven years. For three years he had been a sufferer from a kidney trouble which caused his retirement to private life, and ultimately his death, at the age of 73 years."
The above article taken from the San Francisco Chronicle of April 26, will be read with regret by all our older residents, with whom this well known and honored gentleman was associated in early days. He was Judge of this district and lived many years in Mariposa.

Young as well as old people loved and honored him, and in many a home, last Saturday, tears fell in his memory. Mr. Ed.

ESCOTT, Walter August 20, 1892 Mariposa Gazette
Peace at Last.
Merced Sun, August 16th.
Walter ESCOTT committed suicide last night
in his room at the Tuolumne Hotel, by taking laudanum.
ESCOTT came to Merced about the first of April, from Texas. He was a hard drinker, and was trying to break himself of the whiskey habit. He engaged board and lodging at the Tuolumne Hotel, which was paid for at intervals by the suicides father, who lives in Beeville, Texas. ESCOTT was a powerfully built man, always well dressed and seemed to be a man of good education. His was a familiar face about the Tuolumne, where he always conducted himself as a gentleman and was always treated as such. But liquor had a firm grip on him, and the effort to break from it seemed to him a matter of life and death. Last night he was in the hotel office, cheerful and jolly and in as good spirits as usual. He retired to his room between nine and ten o'clock, but returned to the office about eleven and asked for a pitcher of ice water which was given him. As he left for his room for the last time, he said to a friend, " if I never see you again, good-bye." That was the last time he was ever seen alive. This morning he did not put in an appearance at the hotel, and about noon some one discovered a light in his room. On entering, ESCOTT was found on his bed dead., with a empty bottle labeled laudanum on the beareau. Coroner O'BRIEN was summoned and found among the dead man's effects the following letter, which we reproduce verbatim;
To My Dear Father: - I cannot impose on
kindness further. This is a cowardly way of showing my appreciation of
your love, kindness and leniency for me, but dear father, I will take
life this night. I can't stand it any longer- my wife and child away
me, no home, no prospect of anything future. May God bless my dear
and sister forever.
To My Wife and Baby: - I love you more than you can tell, but as I can't do for you as I ought, and I can see no future, I will set you free my dear ones. Will you think of me, and think that my grave is green. Good-bye, my Josie and Gertrude. Love and kisses for you all. With God and your forgiveness, Good-bye.

TRUIT, Thomas September 3, 1892 Mariposa Gazette
The Jail Burned.
One Life Probably lost.
Thursday morning about 1 o'clock, our people were awakened by the rapid ringing of the church bells and the cry of fire. It was soon ascertained that the fire was in the County Jail, and that it had gained such headway, that nothing could be done, except saving the adjoining buildings. To add to the horror, of matters, one prisoner was in the building. No call for help, nor sounds of any kind came from the jail, after the fire was discovered, so , if he perished, he must have been suffocated, early in the burning. Some have suggested that he fired the building in order to escape, but as his offense was not a serious one, and he was merely doing time, the supposition does not seem very feasible. The unfortunate man's name was Thomas TRUIT, and he is said to have come from Fresno. He was thought to be a little insane, and it is possible that he might have set the fire while laboring under a spell of insanity. At all events our jail is in runs and it is almost certain that the charred body of the poor fellow will be found when the fire dies out, so that the search can be made. It will be several days before any one can work the ruins. This is a sad loss to the county financially, as we are not in very good condition to replace the building. The old jail was very substantially built, and it is doubtful if we can get an other as good.
TRUIT, Thomas suicide note September 24th, 1894 Mariposa Gazette
Letter Found in Coulterville Jail.
The following letter, which was found in the jail at Coulterville, was handed to us by Supervisor W. H. DUDLEY, and was written by the man who was burnt up in the Mariposa Jail, September 1st, 1892. It is self explanatory, and shows that it was written by an insane man.
Coulterville, August 4.
Give me liberty or give me death!
I would rather die than to remain, that is all.
Give me liberty or give me death!
Thos, TRUITT, Coulterville, Cal.
I have done nothing wrong.
I have done nothing wrong.
I have done nothing wrong.
God forgive me this act of taking my life.
I have been worried all my life, and long for the peace of the dead. I
send my remains up in smoke.
And as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world
without end, amen.

OLCESE- In Merced, Oct. 6, 1892, Genevive,
daughter of Frank and Minnie OLCESE, of Hornitos, aged 7 months.
How much bitterness and sorrow lie in the above notice. Just a tiny bud, which had only begun to expand it's beautiful leaves, showing the bright, sweet heart within, but, oh, how dear nd precious to the parents and friends. Little Genevive although but seven months old, was so bright and winning, that she had the love of all with whom she came in contact, and her sweet baby laugh was welcome music to her loving friends. She was ill so short a time, that her parents scarcely knew she was in danger until she has slipped through the white gates, leaving only tender memories of her brief visit to their home. The sympathy of many friends is with the young father and mother in their hour of suffering. Editor.

STEWART, David October 8, 1892 Mariposa Gazette
Sad Fate of a Mariposa Boy.
The San Francisco papers of Oct. 4th
an account of the terrible fate that befell David STEWART, a young
painter. He had been suffering from an attack of " painter's colic,"
had gone home severely ill. His mother and landlady went to the kitchen
to prepare some delicacy for him leaving him sitting by an open window
in a second story room. When they returned he was missing, and a search
revealed him lying on the sidewalk below, He had either been seized
a fit and fallen; or else had jumped, although that was hardly

was fractured, and the physicians declared his injuries fatal.
David STEWART was born and raised to manhood in Mariposa, being a son of the late George STEWART. He was a bright, handsome, affectionate boy, and always has hosts of friends among both old and young. Quite early in life he showed a decided talent for painting, and while still in his teens painted a number of really beautiful landscapes. At last he went to San Francisco where he worked at sign painting, and for the past seven years or eight years he has lived either in that city or Los Angeles, and was called one among the best workmen in his profession. David was a steady, sober, young man, a dutiful son, a devoted brother and a true friend, and should the physicians verdict prove true, many hearts will trob with grief over his sudden, and awful death. His brother George, who lives at Sherlocks was notified as soon as possible, and it is hoped he may reach the city in time to see his brother once more.

GOURGNET, Dennis January 21, 1893 Mariposa Gazette
Death Of Dennis GOURGNET.
Another of Mariposa's pioneers joined the silent majority, on January 12th, when Dennis GOURGNET crossed the cold stream. Mr. GOURGNET came to this county in 1850 or 51, and lived at the active mining camp of Princeton. In fact, he gave the town its name, and was one of the first owners of the Princeton mine. Afterwards, when prosperity shifted from Princeton to Bear Valley, he moved his family there, and for several years was employed as collector and book keeper for the owners of the Fremont Grant. He was a man of fine clerical ability and of much energy, and when Mariposa's fortunes began to fall, he determined, even though advanced in years, to seek new and more active life. He left this county some twelve years ago, and located near Selma, where he has ever since resided, and by untiring industry has, in a great measure, retrieved his past prosperity. Two children, Albert GOURGNET, of Selma and Mrs. Thomas McELLIGOTT, of this town, and his aged widow survive him. His remains were temporally interned at Selma, but as it was his ernest desire to rest amid the beautiful hills of Mariposa he will eventually be brought here.

the country who will grieve to learn of his death. He leaves a widow

Anglo CORIDINO February 4, 1893 Mariposa Gazette
Buried by Tons of Rock.
On Thursday afternoon of last week, an awful accident occurred at French Gulch, a mining camp, about one and a half miles from Grub Gulch. A mill is in the course of construction on the Swanstrom mine, and two men, Patrick GRACE and Anglo CORIDINO, were engaged in sinking a pit for the battery blocks to rest on. A blast of powder which had just been exploded, had possibly loosened the wall of the pit, without any warning the wall some twelve feet high caved in on the unfortunate men burying them under tons of slate and dirt. Their companions who were outside of the pit, hastened to their rescue and worked with all possible speed, but were not successful in saving both men. GRACE was in a corner where a ladder was standing and this saved his life, although he was badly crushed and bruised. Mr. CORIDINO was alive until about fifteen minutes before the men reached him as he answered them, and told them to "hurry on that he was all right." But when the rock and dirt was finally removed it was found that he was dead. The unfortunate man was a member in good standing of the Mariposa Lodge, I.O.O.F. and F. H. WOODARD brought the body here on Friday, to receive burial by the hands of that order. He had no known relatives in this county, but the Odd Fellows fulfilled their duty nobly, and gave him a Christian burial. He was- spoken of as a quiet industrious man, and had sincere friends among the people where he worked. The other man Mr.GRACE was taken to his home in Madera, and his physician entertains hopes of his recovery.

The deceased was a native of Nova Scotia, about 46 years of age and had resided in the vicinity of Snelling and Merced Falls for a number of years. His health has been failing him for some time and about two months ago he went into the Santa Cruz mountains, thinking that the climate might prove beneficial to his health, but it failed to do so, and a few weeks ago he returned to his home at the Falls and after remaining there for a week or two he started for Yosemite Valley with the hope that the change of climate and water would help him, but he only went part way to die.- Merced Express.

At San Francisco,

The above happy couple arrived in Coulterville the 2cd of the present month on a visit to the bride's parents and relatives.
Miss Lena is a daughter of our esteemed residents, Mr. and Mrs. GAZZOLO, and was reared in Coulterville. She is a young lady of fascinating appearance and one who my her uniform pleasant ways and lady like conduct had endeared herself to all.
Mr. MAZE, the fortunate possessor of this most estimable prize, is a young gentleman born and raised in San Francisco, of pleasing manners, exceptionally good looks and exemplary habits. His affable ways and generous treatment of all with whom he came in contact during his short stay among us, justifies the unanimous verdict that " he is worthy of the lady he won." Owing to business that required his immediate attention, it was impossible for Mr. MAZE to remain with us long and with his wife left on the morning of July 6th for San Francisco, their future home, carrying with them the best wishes of all for a long life of happiness and prosperity.

JEFFFERY- CANOVA wedding July 15, 1893 Mariposa Gazette
On Monday evening, July 3rd, at the
of the bride's parents in Coulterville, Mr. George JEFFERY was united
the Holy bonds of matrimony to Miss Mary CANOVA. The engagement of
young people had been announced for some time and a general invitation
had been extended to all to be present. The large number of people who
assembled to witness the ceremony that was to make "two hearts beat as
one," bore unrepeatable testimony to the high regard and esteem in
the contracting parties were held.
Both bride and groom, are natives of Mariposa County and have lived in or near Coulterville all their lives, consequently were acquainted with everybody and every body was acquainted with them.
The recollection of a ridiculous mishap made by the writer at one time, in foolishly presuming to describe a dress worn by a young lady, deters him from attempting a description of the dress worn by the bride, suffice to say, that she was elegantly dressed, and while always comely to look upon, that evening she was beautiful, and caused many of the less fortunate young men to sorrowfully regret that they were not standing in George's shoes, whether they fit them or not.
The spacious parlors of Mr. and Mrs. CANOVA were adequate to accommodate but a small percentage of the assembled throng and in order that all might see and hear, the ceremony was performed on the porch in front of the residence.
Mr. Henry BOISSE and Miss Amelia CANOVA acted as best man and lady, and performed their part with remarkable courage and grace.
The nuptial knot was tied by Judge MURPHY in a short but impressive style, and we hope tight enough to defy the combined legal talent of the State to untie it.
After congratulations, which were numerous and sincere, Dr. BURNETT was induced to make a speech and did so in such manner and style as to justly entitle him to a reputation as an after-wedding-speaker, that would rival that of Chauncey M. DEPEW, as an after dinner talker. R. B. STOLDER, who was on hand owing to the fact as above stated, that everybody was invited, was also called upon and said something.
Cake and refreshments were served, after which all departed, wishing the happy young couple unalloyed happiness and prosperity.
A partial list of presents received by bride and groom:
Mr. CANOVA, Cow and calf; Mrs. Canova, Castor and 1/2 doz. pillow cases; Mr. and Mrs. J.

This fair little bud, so soon broken from the parent stem, had been here so brief a time,that his stay on earth will seem almost like a happy dream. But to the fond parents and relatives, his going away will leave a aching void, which nothing can fill. Less than six months of earth-life had been granted to this beautiful babe, and from the first he had been delicate. The afflicted parents have the sympathy of many friends.

OLCESE, Andrew December 9, 1893 Mariposa Gazette
Many citizens of this county will be shocked to learn of the death of Andrew OLCESE, which occurred at his home in Oakland, on December 4th, Mr. OLCESE for many years, was one of the leading merchants of Hornitos, and his upright honorable life, and generous nature made him firm friends among all who knew him. A few years ago he removed to Oakland, but never entirely severed his interests with this county, and always retained a feeling of affection for this home of his young manhood and middle age. He was an enterprising, progressive man, and had accumulated a large fortune by close adherence to business. His ear was ever ready to listen to the call for aid and his generous heart prompted many kindly acts to the poor, or distressed. A widow and a large family of sons and daughters, are left to mourn the loss of this loving husband and father. Mr. OLCESE was a native of Italy, and was 62 years old.
PEREGOY, Mrs. Mary Agnes December 16, 1893 Mariposa Gazette
Mrs. Mary Agnes PEREGOY.
The death of this highly esteemed lady, occurred last Sunday afternoon, after a painful illness of many months' duration. Mrs. PEREGOY was a very quiet retiring woman, but was much beloved by all who knew her intimately. She came here from Pennsylvania, in her girlhood, and since then her life has been spent amid the mountains of Mariposa. She possessed the elements of a lovely Christian character, and always sought peace instead of contention. Always a delicate woman, her strength gave way suddenly, when the fatal disease, consumption, fastened itself upon her, and for weary months, she had been confined to her home. A devoted husband and sons and a loving daughter, and many friends ministered to her wants, but all was unavailing. A large concourse of friends followed the body, on Tuesday, to its last resting place.
