Mariposa Gazette, March 9, 1907 Body Recovered
Word was telephoned to Mariposa Thursday evening that the body of Dave Ashworth, the young man who was downed in the Merced river a few weeks ago, had been recovered. The body was found only a short distance below the point where he was supposed to have entered the river on the opposite side. Coroner D. E. Johnson was summoned and left for the river to hold an inquest on the body, but at this writing nothing is known as to whether or not the condition of the body will admit of its being brought to Mariposa for burial.
