Oroville, Feb. 2. ­ News reached Oroville yesterday that Robert Eccleston, pioneer resident of Forebestown, this county, died at his home in Oakland at the age of 81 years, after several weeks’ illness.

With the earliest immigration across the plains he came to California and engaged in cattle raising near Forbestown. In September 1857, at that place he was married to Miss Emily Josephine Young, who crossed the plains in 1852 at the age of 13 years.
