MARIPOSA - Another important chapter in the fabulous history of this old mother of counties came to a close last night with the death of Frank Thomas Trabucco, 87, Mt. Bullion's nationally known postmaster. He died in a Fresno hospital.

Frank Trabucco held the office of postmaster longer than any postmaster in the United States at the time of his retirement 10 years ago. He had added to that record by serving as acting postmaster of the little community since that time.

Frank Trabucco was a part of old Mariposa county. He saw it in its lush gold days when Mt. Bullion was better known as Princeton, a city of several thousand persons. He lived in the community where California's first mint, Mt. Ophir, was turning out gold pieces in $50 denominations.

Among his personal acquaintances were many presidents of the United States who paid him homage on their trips to Yosemite National Park. He was appointed postmaster by Grover Cleveland in 1886 and served continuously since that time.

Funeral services will be held in the Tiscornia and Ivers chapel here Saturday afternoon at 2:30 under the auspices of the Mariposa Masonic lodge.

He leaves one son, Frank Trabucco of Hornitos; four daughters, Miss Julia Ellena Trabucco of Keen, Mrs. May Ham of Fresno, Mrs. Agnes Appling of Taft, and Mrs. Eleanor Westfall of Le Grand. He also leaves a sister, Mrs. Delida Bertken, mother of the late Louis T. Milburn.
