Mabel W. Porter Briot

Birth: unknown
New York, USA
Death: Mar. 25, 1911
Grass Valley
Nevada County
California, USA

Mabel W. Briot was the daughter of Reuben R. & Alice A Lincoln Porter. Her father is credited with being the founder of Chicago Park.

Although no headstone is present in the city cemetery today, Mabel expressed her desire to be buried in this cemetery in her will. It is thereby very likely that she is buried near the gravesites of her parents.


After being ill for several weeks, refusing to yield to the physicians care, Mrs. C. H. Briot of Chicago Park was brought to the Jones hospital Sunday morning, where she is low lying in a critical condition. A lad by the name of Joseph Foster, who has been making his home with Mrs. Briot, notified neighbors of Mrs Briot's illness. As soon as they arrived at the home they found the sick woman unconscious and delirious at times. Dr. Carl Jones was sent for and it was found necessary to bring her to this city for expert medical treatment.

Found by Friends a Week Ago at Chicago Park in Critical Condition.

Death claimed Mrs. C. H. Briot last evening at the Jones hospital, where she was taken a week ago from her home at Chicago Park. Deceased had been a long and patient sufferer from a cancerous growth. She resided all alone at Chicago Park and just a week ago she was discovered by neighbors to be in a weakened condition. From the time she entered the hospital little hope was held out for her recovery and her death did not come as a surprise to the attending physician, although her death caused a profound shock to her brother, who recently arrived from Los Angeles to be with her in her last illness.

Deceased had made her home at Chicago Park for a long time. Her many friends loved her for her sweet, womanly ways and her cheerful, sympathetic nature. Undertaker Thomas Harris has taken charge of the remains, but the disposition of the body had not been arranged for last night. As far as known the brother is the only living relative.
