DEATH OF DAVID WATSON
Death has again claimed one of our old neighbors and friends. This time it is David Watson. He had been failing for some time and his death was not unexpected. He departed peacefully to his eternal rest a week ago yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock.
The remains were buried by the Odd Fellows in the Bieber cemetery last Friday afternoon in the presence of a large number of people; the funeral services at the house and grave being conducted by that order, of which he was an old and worthy member.
Deceased was born in Pennsylvania 64 years ago and came to California in the early days, where he engaged in mining in Siskiyou County. In 1870, he came to this county, settling first on Hayden Hill, where he continued in the mining business for a year or two, and after abandoning that occupation, he settled in this valley, where he has since continuously resided.
Deceased lived a bachelor life until about twelve years ago, when he married Mrs. Calista D. Scranton, from whom he was divorced some five years ago, there having been no issue of their marriage.
He has one brother, Sam, residing in this state and several brothers living in Ohio.
His many old friends will hear of his death with sincere regret, and with us will wish that "Peace be to his ashes."
