Chico Weekly Chronicle-Record, Saturday, December 29, 1888, pg 1 col 8: Death of John James Murchison. John James Murchison, a young man who had been some time in the employ of D.M. Reavis at his ranch, died on the 21st instant, after an illness of six weeks. During this time he received every possible attention from Mr. R. and family, as well as from the other men employed on the ranch. Mr. Murchison was about 24 years of age. A communicatio from Zach Van Ornum to this paper speaks in high terms of the young man, and of the kind treatment he received during his illness.

[no age provided] Charles (?) Murchison was interred, per the Chico Cemetery Association Records, in the plot noted, on December 23, 1888.
