From the San Francisco Call, December 7, 1907:
"H. DE LA MONTANYA,
NOTED PIONEER, IS DEAD

Member of First Vigilance Committee Here and Supervisor in 1866

SAN RAFAEL, Dec. 6 -- Hudson de la Montanya, one of the best known pioneers in the state, died at his home here today, aged 80 years, death being due to natural causes. He came around the Horn in the spring of 1850, accompanied by his brother, and engaged in the hardware business in San Francisco. He was one of the original vigilance committee in San Francisco and was a member of the volunteer fire department of 1851.

He was famed the state over through bringing the first trotting horses to the coast in 1860. As a supervisor of the county and city of San Francisco from 1866 to 1888 he had much to do with the affairs of the municipality.

De la Montanya came to Marin county about 25 years ago, engaging in stock raising, and after some 10 years retired from business life. He leaves a widow and two sons, Pierre and Herbert, the latter being a journalist."
