Birth: Jun. 9, 1827
Benton
Yates County
New York, USA
Death: Dec. 31, 1852

Died - December 31st, 1852, on board Steam Ship Cortes, off St. Lucas Bay , Alonzo Murdough aged 25 years 6 months and 22 days.

Mr. Murdough was a young man of steady and temperate habits, and well known to most of the citizens of our place. It is but about three months since that we last saw him full of life and high anticipations, start for the land of Gold. He probably but little dreamed at the time, that none of his hopes would ever be realized, and that his fate would be the same as hundreds and thousands that had preceded him. When within about 12 days sail of San Francisco, he was taken with the Cholera and died in the course of a few hours, and his remains now lie in the fathomless depths of the broad Pacific. He was the son of William and Elizabeth Murdough, of Benton in this County, and he leaves a large circle of relations and friends to mourn his untimely end. - Com.
