"On the 18th inst., a man named Thomas Ripley, mining near Chinese camp, was being lowered into his shaft when the noose in which he was seated slipped from the bight, precipitating him a distance of 85 feet. He struck on his feet with terrific force, breaking every bone in the lower portion of his body and killing him instantly."
"Mining and Scientific Press", 26 September 1874, page 196, housed at the California Division of Mines in Sacramento, CA.

The area around Chinese Camp is now under a reservoir. The bodies were moved to Jamestown, CA.
