Birth: 1817, Ireland
Death: Jul. 24, 1882
Iowa Hill
Placer County
California, USA

Died at age 65 from suicide. He was a miner.

Obituary below to the contrary, it appears his name was Bracken, not Bracket, based on voter registration and census records. Thee was also a Brackett, but he is buried in Colfax.
