            DR. JOHN F. MORSE

 No man has ever died in California leaving a larger circle of warmly-attached personal friends than Dr. John F. MORSE, whose death occurred in San Francisco on the 30th ultimo.

  Dr. MORSE was born in Vermont in 1816. He was educated for a physician, and pursed his medical studies with ardor and enthusiasm which characterized him in all his undertakings. His profession was ever his pride and his delight. He loved it for the opportunities for good to others which it afforded, and which he never neglected to improve; and for the knowledge it conferred on the most interesting and mysterious questions of natural science. Few men have had a larger or more laborious practice, but he continued a student to the time of his death, and he leaves no one in the State more thoroughly and familiarly acquainted with medical literature and science, their history, researches and latest results. Latterly, he was especially interested in all investigations into the subtle relations between material and mental phenomena. He came to California from Brooklyn (where he was a charter member of Plymouth Church) in 1849, arriving on the ship Humboldt, on which he acted as surgeon from Acapulco to San Francisco, and immediately settled in Sacramento. In the fall of that year, in connection with Dr. STILLMAN, he opened a hospital at the corner of K and Third streets, on the lot now occupied by NATHAN’s clothing store. It is impossible for those who were not here to realize, or even for those who were to recall, the professional labors performed and gratuitous services rendered by Dr. MORSE in the Spring of 1850, when the city was inundated; in the Summer, when it was filled with immigrants, often sick and destitute, and in the Fall, when it was scourged by the cholera. His constitution, not naturally robust, was impaired by constant labor and frequent exposure, and when the Sacramento Union was projected, in March 1851, he was offered a position of editor, which he accepted, and held for about a year. Resuming his profession he continued in active practice in this city until 1863, when he removed to San Francisco. His practice was at all time large, generally limited only by his own strength. In the sick room he was one of the kindest and most sympathetic of men, and each of his patients seemed to be the object of as much care and solicitude as though he had but one. He was also a men of great public spirit, taking a lively interest in every question which affected the community, the State, and the nation. With unusual fluence of speech, and a rapid, impetuous delivery, he was very often called upon for addresses on public occasions, and he became widely known through the State. He was one of the leading Odd Fellows on the Pacific coast, and during the visit to Germany in 1870 he introduced the order into that empire. He spent a great portion of the last five years of his life in traveling on account of failing health. He had uniformly found a sea-voyage beneficial, and about two months ago took passage for Australia. His friends were apprehensive his strength was not sufficient for the journey, and they were right. He went no further than the Hawaiian Islands, and returning reached home a few days before his death. The peculiar and most marked characteristics of his mind and disposition were an ardor that was impulsive, and a devotion that was heroic. The friends that he loved “he grappled with hooks of steel,” and he followed his convictions wherever they led. If tender regrets, kind memories, and grateful recollections could build his monument, no man’s would rise higher.

Donner Party Members Die Same Day

Surnames: Lewis, Wilder, Donner, App, Reed

 

Wednesday, July 4, 1923

The hand of death, by strange coincidence, fell yesterday at about the same time upon two of the few remaining figures of one of California's most stirring historical episodes.

 

While the news was being received of the death of Mrs. Martha Reed Lewis, survivor of the Donner party, at her home at East Twin Lakes, Santa Cruz Co., a fellow member of that ill-fated party was breathing her last in her home at Elk Grove.

 

The second survivor to die within twenty-four hours was Mrs.

Elitha C. Wilder, daughter of Robert Donner.

 

She was a friend of Mrs. Lewis, but because of her weakened condition could

not be informed that the ranks of those who remembered the terrible journey in

1846 had shrunk again.

 

Mrs. Lewis was 87 years old and Mrs. Wilder was 91.

 

Mrs. Wilder is not only famous because she is the daughter of the leader of the

Donner party, but because of her part in the early history of California.

She came to Elk Grove shortly after the living members of the party were

rescued from the snow bound shores of Donner Lake, and has lived there for

the past 50 years.

 

Mrs. Leanan App, a sister of Mrs. Wilder, makes her home in Jamestown. She is

one of the few known survivors of the party who is still living.

Harvey Thompkins 1915

Surnames: Thompkins, Walthers, Stratton, Henderson

Harvey Wallace Thompkins, perhaps the best known motorcyclist in Sacramento, died in Nevada City 18 July 1915. He had gone there a week ago on account of his health, but his friends did not realize how ill he was. Pneumonia set in as a result of an injury received some time ago.
Until recently he was employed at the Banta Cyclery on Eleventh street and was popular among motorcyclists. He made a record in Sacramento of 20 miles in 18 minutes and 45 seconds. He had also figured in other races in different parts of the state.
Eight months ago he was married to Miss Hazel Walthers of Sacramento and the young people had made their home here.
Besides his young wife he leaves to mourn his untimely death three brothers, Bert, Walter and Orrin Tompkins and one sister, Mrs. Millicent Stratton all of this city. He was the grandson of Mrs. Rafella Henderson.
The funeral was held yesterday in Nevada City, where he was laid to rest beside his mother and father.

Peter Glann – 1914

21 February 1914
Peter Glann, 76 years old, a pioneer farmer of Bruceville and one of the wealthiest land owners in Sacramento county, was drowned in a slough on his ranch last Saturday afternoon when his horse became tangled in brush while fording the flood-swollen stream.
The accident occurred about half a mile west of the Burton Slough embankment of the Lower Stockton road. Mr. Glann and Mr. Ehrhardt were driving out a bunch of horses, the latter being in the lead. What happened will never be known, but the first intimation Mr. Ehrhardt had that anything was wrong was when he saw Mr. Glann's horse coming along riderless.
All day Sunday and Monday 50 to 100 men were engaged in dragging for the body, and it was not until Tuesday morning that success attended their efforts. The body was found out on the plains land a short distance from the slough where it was supposed to repose. There are many theories as to how the body got where it was found. A plausible one is that Mr. Glann held on to the bridle and the horse dragged him a distance until the hold was broken.
All of the residents of Franklin and Bruceville districts, many from Elk Grove and other parts were in the rescue party.
Deceased was a native of Ohio aged 77 years. He leaves one brother, David Glann of Ohio and a sister Mrs. Catherine Upton of Elk Grove, a sister-in-law Mrs. Anna Glann of Glannvale. He was a brother of the late Henry, Vincent, Daniel and James Glann.
Peter Glann was one of the early pioneers of Sacramento county. He was one of the largest and wealthiest land owners in the county. He always took an active interest in political affairs and was a man of much influence among those who knew him.
Deceased was a member of the Elk Grove Masonic Lodge, under the auspices of which he was buried. The funeral was held this morning from the mortuary chapel of Miller & Skelton in Sacramento and thence to Franklin where graveside services were held.

William Schmidt Killed – 1925

Henry Schmidt, rancher of the Franklin district, killed his brother William Schmidt, yesterday (10 December 1925) with a shotgun in a sudden fit of insanity and was overpowered by County Traffic Officer Edward Schmidt, another brother whose life he had threatened, only after a desperate struggle.  "The world's coming to an end and I'll get everyone of you before it does." shouted the insane man as he reached the home of his brother, William.
William emerged from the front door and Henry leveled his gun and fired. The shot struck William in the head and he died instantly.  The third brother, Edward came from the house when he heard the shot. Henry walked up to him and placed the muzzle of the shotgun against his breast and said he intended to kill him too. The the struggle for possession of the weapon took place. Edward succeeded in getting the gun. The murderer then ran to his own house and got another shotgun. He returned to his brother's home but the shells he had were of a larger gauge than the second and he was unable to carry out his threat.  Constable Schoech of Franklin arrived and disarmed Schmidt for the second time and handcuffed him. Sheriff Ellis Jones and Deputies Harry Bryant and Charles Wearn brought Schmidt in.  The funeral of William Schmidt will be this afternoon at 2 o'clock from the family home in Franklin. Interment will be in the Franklin Cemetery.
