Aged Colusan, Train Victim, Laid to Rest
Pioneer's Tragic Death Under Train Held Accidental

A coroner's jury inquiring into details of the tragic death of Albert[sic: Alfred] B. Baker, 72, resident of Colusa for 65 years who was killed Monday evening at Crommer Crossing when struck by a Sacramento Northern passenger train, late yesterday returned an open verdict. The jury found that Baker came to his death "by being struck by Sacramento Northern train No. 100 at Crommer crossing."
Members of the coroner's jury were: Everett Wurz, foreman; Trueman H. Towne, James Turner, Frank Mason, H. J. Grisson and S. S. Brown.
A possible suicide theory in the death of Baker was discounted today. It is believed he stumbled and fell on the tracks and cattle guard while wandering in a daze. Baker of late had been worrying over financial troubles. It was said he was about to lose his home.
Funeral services for the pioneer Colusan were held at 2:30 o'clock this afternoon at McNary's chapel with Rev. Francis E. Cook officiating. Interment was made in Colusa cemetery under the direction of J. D. McNary & Son. Mrs. E. T. Nesbit and Everett Wurz sang at the services. Mrs. Kay Boyd of Emeryville, sister of the deceased, was here for the last rites.
Pallbearers who officiated at the services this afternoon were C. J. Wescott, W. A. Sweetland, Charles Neal, James Rogers, Phil Humburg, Sr., and Otha Shuman.
