The following is an obituary from the Mountain Democrat, 29 November 1902 provided by contributor K. Thomas"
E. (R.T. sic) Chaix, son of Sixte Chaix of Latrobe died last week Friday evening and was buried Saturday. He was an intelligent, industrious young man, just 21 years of age, and death came from a virulent attack of diphtheria, contracted it is thought in Tuolumne County, where he had been living. He was a brother of Mrs. G.S. Estey, and well known here. His early death is greatly regretted.
Ray also purchased the old M.J. Fuller ranch in 1900 near Columbia, Tuolumne County (where he died).
The Chaix family owned several mines in Latrobe (chromium, quartz and gold) with the Estey family. Ray took advantage of his knowledge of mining and traveled to Nome, Alaska in 1901 where he did quite well in the gold rush there. He returned home from Alaska in October of 1901.
