Obituary, Mariposa Gazette
CASTAGNETTO, Dominico January 23, 1897
Another Pioneer gone.
Last Thursday at about 10 o'clock the messenger of death visited the home of Dominico CASTAGNETTO in Hunter's Valley and summoned its venerable owner to appear before his maker.
Mr. CASTAGNETTO was a pioneer of Mariposa county and at the time of his death he was seventy-five years of age. He was a native of Italy and came to California when he was a young man and has ever since resided here. In his younger days he carried on an extensive merchandise business in Bear Valley and was one of the prominent citizens.
For a number of years prior to his death he has lived quietly with his family on his ranch in Hunter's Valley.
He was married to a very estimable lady, who preceded him to the grave a few years since. They raised a large family of children, six of whom survive their parents.
The funeral took place in Bear Valley on Thursday last and was largely attended by the friends of the deceased.
The sympathies of the entire community is extended to his bereaved relatives.
