Stocker - In Tillamook Bay, OR, September 7th, James T. Stocker Sr., a native of Baltimore, MD, age 66 years.
The sad news was received here last week of the accidental death, by drowning, of Mr. James. T. Stocker Sr. Few particulars of the occurrence have come to hand. Mr. Stocker was in the employ of the Hudson Bay Co., and it appears that he left their works to go to his ranch, and the next that is known of him is that his body was found in Tillamook Bay. He was a pioneer in 1849, and had been in California previous to that. He came to Marin County in 1852, and was for many years a prominent citizen here, and represented the county in the Assembly in 1857-8, having previously filled the office of Sheriff in 1853-5. He leaves a widow and 6 children, 4 sons and 2 daughters, 2 daughters having passed away before him. Of his sons, James T. Jr. and Charles, are still residents of the county, the first a carpenter, and the latter a railroader, living in Tomales.
