POPULAR PHYSICIAN. Solano
Republican Jan. 26. This community was shocked Monday afternoon when
the sad intelligence was announced by telegram that Dr. J. A. Ostrander had
died that afternoon at his home in Oakland. Although
it was known many months ago that Dr. Ostrander was a very sick man, and at the
time last summer he was compelled to abandon his practice here, few thought he
would ever be well again, but recent reports were of an encouraging nature and
hopes for his recovery were revived. The news therefore of his death
came as a great shock to many people who knew him in life only to love
him. Although the deceased had been away from Suisun several months,
during his residence here he had so endeared himself to the people they still
claimed him as one of their own. Jasper A. Ostrander was born at Snelling, Merced county, January 7, 1856, his family being one of the
foremost of that section and prominently identified with the early history of California. He
received his early education in Merced and finished
up by the study of medicine in Oakland,
where he was married prior to coming to Solano county
to enter into the practice of his chosen profession. He came here
about ten years ago, first locating in Fairfield
and afterwards removing to Suisun. This was in May,
1893. He was successful in the practice of homeopathy - in fact, he
possessed unusual medical skill. His close attention to his duties,
however, finally proved more of a strain than his constitution could
bear. He first became ill a little over a year ago, and although
then a very sick man, often answered calls and took long cold drives when he
was unfit to leave his bed. His devotion to his duties was too much
for him and it was not long before he had to give it up entirely. By
the death of Dr. Ostrander a vacancy has been made that will be hard to
replace. He was a man of honor and possessed of a kind and generous dispositon. He was quiet, and unostentatious to
such degree, that many acts of his generosity and charity were unknown except
to himself. In Fraternal circles he held a high place and much could
be said of him in this regard if space permitted. He was a member of
Suisun Lodge No. 78, I. O. O. F., Suisun Lodge No. 111, Knights of Pythias and Solano Parlor No. 39, N. S. G. W., and was a
past presiding officer of each of these lodges. He was also a member
of Crystal Rebekah lodge of Suisun, of which his
widow is also a member. There are left to mourn his loss, a
sorrowing widow, Mrs. Emma Ostrander, and three children, Olive, Annis and Charles." - Merced Express, Fri., 2 Feb
1900, pg. 3/5.
