Old Pioneer Passes The death of John R. Baty removes another pioneer settler of this valley. The end came at the residence of Mrs. Wm Hill, at Modesto, where he was visiting. Coming to this valley and settling at Fort Bidwell when this part of the State was teeming with hostile Indians, his life was one of excitement, thrilling adventures and danger. He was a good neighbor, thoroughly imbued with old fashioned hospitality, and his latch string was always on the outside of his door, and he will be sadly missed in the community in which he has lived so long. John R. Baty was born in Ohio, September 3, 1839 and died March 5, 1925. He came to California in the 60's by way of the Panama route and located at Fort Bidwell and was married to Miss Laura Mason, daughter of Judge Mason, of Lake County, Ore., Oct. 30, 1870. To this union twelve children were born, and reared on the old home place at Bidwell. They are as follows: Thos Baty, Montana; Ella Baty, decreased; Mrs. I. S. McGowan, Los Angeles; Mrs. I. H. Skillman, Fort Bidwell; Mrs. H. Bardue, San Francisco; Mrs. E. G. Peterson, Fort Bidwell Virgie Skillman, deceased; Mrs. W. D. Hill, Modesto; Mrs. W. W. Hughes, Roseburg; Mrs. R. L. Watson, San Luis Obispo; Carol Baty, Eagleville; Mrs. T. J. Wylie, Cedarville. To them sincere sympathy of a large circle of friends is extended in their sad bereavement. The remains were accompanied from Modesto to Fort Bidwell by his daughter, Mrs. W. D. Hill and were interred in the Bidwell cemetery last Sunday afternoon.
