|Death: ||May 22, 1897|
On April 4, 1896, after arguing with his neighbor George Washburn of San Andrea, Calaveras County, over an over-flowing well, Lopez picked up a revolver and shot Washburn dead. He was soon convicted of murder and sentenced to death. He was always considered a dangerous man due to rumors that he once stabbed a man and was suspected of murdering another several years ago. On the day of his execution, it was reported that Lopez slept well, had a hearty breakfast, conferred with his spiritual advisors, then calmly walked from his cell at Folsom State Prison to the gallows where he was duly hung. He was 70 years old and a native of Central America.
