    Ellicotts' Mills, May 2d 1847.
    The stable of Col Charles Carroll, on the Donghoregan Manor, about four miles from this place, were consumed on the night of the 26th ult. and six of his choicest carriage-horses burnt. Four others were so badly injured by the flames that their recovery is doubtful.
    The woods of Judge Thomas B. Dorsey caught fire on Tuesday afternoon last, occasioned by some sparks from a locomotive, and before the flames could be arrested, they had spread over four hundred acres of his estate - consuming fences, brushwood, and everything else within their scope. This is the fifth time that these woods have caught fire from a like cause. Judge D. contemplates instituting a suit against the Railroad Company for damages.

The codicil bears date August 19, 1869: I give and bequeath $30,000 to my brother, Reuben M. Dorsey, and Gov.

If my personal estate should not prove sufficient to pay all legacies, including this of $30,000, I direct that so much shall be deducted from the $45,000 given by the codicil dated August 16, 1869, as may be necessary to make up this legacy for the benefit of the people of the South.

  724. Daily Missouri Republican, Vol XXXVI, Issue: 161, p. 2. DIED: MR. EDWARD W. DORSEY died at his residence in Pike county, Missouri, Saturday, the 10th July, 1858. The disease was erysipelas, and proved fatal in the course of a week. Mr. Dorsey was born in Anne Arundel county, Maryland, October 8th, 1795. He lived on his farm in Pike about 22 years. He was not only respected, but loved by all who knew him. A neighbor who knew him long and intimately said: "He was the first to go to the house of affliction, and the last to leave it." Being loved and confided in by his neighbors, he was a mediator and peace-maker among them, and thus, as far as any one man could be, he was a bond or their union in social life. He was an exemplary member of the Protestant Episcopal Church. With an humble mind, he seemed to remember faithfully his baptismal covenant; and as, so far as man can judge, he lived in the house of his God and Saviour, we are justified in the hope that he died in Him and isblessed. To his friends and neighbors and family, his past life is an ever living sermon of Christian faith and Godliness. It is the consistency of Christian life with the precepts of the Scriptures which affords one of the strongest evidences of the origin and truth of that religion. He was the Senior Warden of St. Mark's Church at Bowling Green, and was buried with the service of that Church, in his own family cemetery on his farm. This testimonial is conscientiously and cordially offered by his PASTOR

  762. Annals of Stanislaus County, p 138. The Bensons, Edward S. and John, and the other partner in the townsite venture, J S Byers, seem to have clung to their belief that the town would revive, or they may have file preemption claims in order to enable them to transfer the property. At any rate, the two Bensons and Byers filed claims in Sonora on 160 acres each on August 13, 1852. Then on the 31st of the same month Edward Benson quitclaimed 0 acres on the north bank if the Tuolumne River, mentioned as "being a portion of the site of the late Crescent City." This quitclaim was in favor of Jackson I Wright. Then Byers and John Benson conveyed their titles to Edward S Benson. On the same day John Benson, acting attorney for Edward Benson, deeded what was called the "lower" claim of 160 acres on the north side of the river, or a portion "of the site of the late Crescent City" to John W. Dorsey. From this point on the titles and claims of the former site of Crescent City seem to become a bit involved, which of course was not at all unusual in the early days of our country's settlement. On October 22, 1852, Isaac Ripperdan filed a preemption claim on "the upper claim of the late Crescent City." This, too, is noted as being on the north bank of the river, about one mile below Empire City. Then comes John A. Worthington, who on November 7, 1853, filed his claim for "the Crescent City bottom," between John Dorsey and Ripperdan. Worthington and Ripperdan seem not to have perfected their claims to the Crescent City land, or they may have conceded the priority of the Benson and Dorsey claims. On January 2, 1855, John Adams bought the three claims of 160 acres each from Jackson L Wright, John W Dorsey, and Thomas B Dorsey for $1,500. Thte first tract of 160 acres, of which Wright was the grantor, is described as being on the north bank of the Tuolumne River, and as being a portion of the site "of the late Crescent City." The second tract, from John W Dorsey, was described as the "lower claim," and the third tract, from Thomas B. Dorsey, was described as the 160 acres adjacent to the second tract. This title seems to have held up and John and Lura Ann Adams, his wife secured patents to the land both from the federal government for the uplands and from the state for the swamp and overflowed lands on the river bottom. The site of this town that died almost before it was born can be easily identified today. Where today's Mitchell Road crosses the Tuolumne River marks the westerly boundary of the three land preemption claims included in the original townsite. Ont the 1854 map of the land office, made when the area was sectionized. Dorsey's house is noted on the north bank of the river at a point about midway between Hughson and Garner roads, if they were extended south to the river, and slightly less than three-fourths of a mile above the Mitchell Road bridge.

  798. Oakdale Leader, p 6, May 26, 1971, Centennial Edition. "Colonel" Caleb Dorsey joined his brothers, Thomas B. Dorsey and John W. Dorsey in their ranching enterprises in Stanislaus county shortly after the Civil War was over. Caleb was known as "Colonel" because he fought with the Confederate Army during the Civil War.
    Col. Caleb Dorsey, according to Tinkham's "History of Stanislaus County" was shot and killed May 28, 1885 in Sonora, by his partner over land trouble. In addition to being the Stanislaus County Supervisor and chairman of that body during the year when Oakdale became a town, 1870-71, "Col." Dorsey was also a member of the California State Assembly, 1877-78. After serving on the board of supervisors he established himself in Modesto and was president of the Modesto Bank in the early 1880's, at the same time his brother Thomas was president of the Oakdale Bank, both brothers ranking high as financiers and community leaders.
    The Dorsey family's original interest in the Oakdale area was the Dorsey ranch immediately across the Stanislaus River from Oakdale and east of 26 Mile Road. The ranch consisted of 1200 acres and was procured by the Dorsey family about 1865.
  799. Federal Census, 1850, Virginia, (Roll: M432_409; Page: 219; Image: 438.). states he was born in Missouri - but every other census report I have lists him as having been born in Maryland - including his death as reported in the San Joaquin death register.

  807. The American Civil War, http://www.mycivilwar.com/battles/611228.htm. The Battle of Mount Zion Church, December 28, 1861 in Mount Zion Church, Missouri
    Brig. Gen. Benjamin M Prentiss led a Union force of 5 mounted companies and 2 companies of Birge's sharpshooters into Boone County to protect the North Missouri Railroad and overawe secessionist sentiment there. After arriving in Sturgeon on December 26, Prentiss learned of a band of Confederates near Hallsville.
    On the 27th, Prentiss sent on troop of cavalry to locate a concentration of Confederates near Hallsville and fining none in Hallsville, thy proceeded about 2 miles beyond their advance guard and encountered Col. Caleb Dorsey's men about 1/3 a mile northeast of Mount Zion Church and fired upon them, and then fell back. Dorsey pursued them and 3 miles from the church overtook and fired upon them. A 10-minute skirmish ensued. By 6:00 PM the rest of Howland's men had returned to Sturgeon.
    The next morning at 2:00 AM, Prentiss set out with his entire force to meet Dorsey's Confederates in the brush about 100 yards east of the Mount Zion Church. He routed one company of Confederates on the road from Hallsville to Mount Zion and larned that the rest of the force was at Mount Zion Church. Prentiss headed for the church. The Federals made 3 charges and during the third charge, the ammunition in Dorsey's command became exhausted. Dorsey then fell back to his wagons. The battle closed about 11:00 AM.
    The Confederates retreated, leaving their killed and wounded on the battlefield and abandoning many animals, weapons, and supplies. A few days after the fight, an arrangement was effected for the exchange of the prisoners. After leaving Mt. Zion Church, Dorsey made his way westward into Perche township and went into camp near Everett. He remained there a day or two and then pursuant to orders from Gen. Price, ordered his command to "scatter." This action and others curtailed Rebel recruiting activities in Central Missouri.

His service as a Confederate soldier dates from Aug 1862 when not yet fifteen years of age. He went with eight others in September following to Carrollton, Ark., where he joined Cap. William Barry's company of Missouri cavalry, at that time actin as escort for Gen. M M Parsons. He served with this company on scout and picket duty, and with Dorsey's Squadron of Missouri Cavalry in West Arkansas and the Indian Territory until August 6, 1863. Discharged on account of extreme youth, he could not secure the written consent of his widowned mother, as required by the Confederate War Department; so he went to Little Rock and managed to get into the 28th Louisiana Infantry...

Lt Col Shaffer reached Fayette late the night of the 6th, and there found a large cavalry force, consisting of detachments from the First Missouri Cavalry, under command of Major Hubbard, First Iowa Cavalry, under Major Torrence, and Merrill's Horse, under Major Hunt. He then learned during the night that the enemy, variously estimated at from 1,300 to 2,500, were encamped on Smith's farm, about 5 miles from Roanoke. At the same time he received information that the remains of the command of Colonel Dorsey, which had been engaged in the Mount Zion fight, was then marching to attack me at Columbia. I had only part of one company left when Colonel Shaffer left me, and he knew that part of that would be sent to Jefferson City to escort the provision train. Early next morning he sent the command of Major Hubbard, which he had found at Fayette, re-enforced by one company of his own command, to find the enemy's camp, and returned at once to Columbia with the rest of his command...

    D Sir
    Learning that you have extended the parol of Genl Price and other officers of the Rebel Army lately taken prisoners - I am induced to ask that you will extend the parol of Col. Caleb Dorsey who is a brother of my wife - so as to enable him to go to Pike County Missouri where his mother resides and where his home is - I am not authorized to say that he is disposed to abandon the position which he has heretofore affirmed - but I think that the influences that would surround him on his return home would most probably induce him to change - but this I can pledge myself to that he would do nothing whilst on parol inconsistent with strict propriety of conduct as a prisoner of war parolee upon his honor -
    Respectfully your
    Jas. O Broadhead

I immediately took 105 men of the Tenth Illinois Cavalry and started at 5 pm to intercept them. I came on their pickets about 8:30 o'clock and drove them in, and attacked the main force about 300 strong, killing 4 of them on the ground, wounding a good many, as I afterward understood, and capturing 27 prisoners.

  821. The War of the Rebellion, Vol X, Chapter 7. The land and naval forces on the Mississippi burned Mound City, Ark., on the 15th of January. On the 24th a scouting party from Fayetteville crossed the Boston mountains, and going down Frog bayou, entered Van Buren and captured the steamboat Julia Roane, with about 250 Confederates from the hospital, who were paroled, being sick; the steamer, which was only a hospital, being allowed to proceed.

    February 2d, Maj. Caleb Dorsey, with his squadron of Confederate cavalry, was escorting the steamboat Julia Roane down the Arkansas river, when at White Oak, seven miles west of Ozark, he was attacked by a band of Arkansas Federal, under Captain Galloway. Dorsey, with his confederates, charged and routed them, killing horses and wounding several of the enemy, who retreated to Frog bayou. On February 3d, Capt Peter Mankins, with a portion of his company, was surrounded in a house on Mulberry by a scouting party under Captain Travis, which Mankins repulsed, killing two men of the Tenth Illinois and wounding others.

  824. Missouri Historical Review, pp 395, 398. Referred to by Col Bazel F Lezear, Missouri Cavalry, who was searching out the 'bushwhackers' and raiding parties, such as Quantrill's Raiders, and was also trying to stop Col. Caleb Dorsey and his men.
    "I intend to send all the families of Bushwhackers out of this (Lafayette) and Johnson county just as fast as I can give them notice to leave. Bushwhackers are very plenty here in this county now and I intend in the few days to make a general move against them and try if I cant rid these two counties of them as I will have about one thousand men in a few days and will have the control in this and Johnson county and if let alone wont let them rest night or day until they are all killed or leave. So if you should not hear from me regular you may know that I am in the brush with Quantrill and his band. I wish I could get over there to get after Dorsey awhile. I think I could catch him and if I can only catch Quantrill and Dorsey is still there I will be able to get over there and catch him."
    Ed. Note: The raiding parties inflicted real damage to the residents of Missouri, and by the end of the war had made mortal enemies of those who would normally have supported or been neutral to their cause, but were turned against them due to their vicious and destructive behavior.

I also sent a scout to Hot Springs (Buckskins), and their report amounts to the following, which I think is correct, as it is corroborated by citizens coming within our lines: They say the Marmaduke had a force of 600 men in there on the morning of the 4th instant, they reaching there in the evening. Part of them were State troops. The report there was, they were going to attack Benton, where a small force of ours is stationed. Shelby and the rest of Marmaduke's forces are together, stationed at Okolona, on the Onachita River. Both commands, it is said, have 4,000 men. They are deserting fast; their transportation is very poor. Colonel Dorsey is in the mountains between Benton and Hot Springs, and has 400 men..

    Fulton, Mo., November 8, 1864
    General: On the night of the 5th instant Dorsey, with 200 men, camped ten miles southwest of this place. At 12 midnight he took up the line of march for some point on the Missouri River. I received information that he was in camp at the place above mentioned. at noon of the 6th. I immediately went in pursuit with sixty-five of my command. I struck the trail late in the evening at a point ten miles west of south of this place, and found that he was bearing east. I followed the trail through by-roads and plantations until near midnight, when I lost his trail and came to a halt. I learned that there were two Union families within a mile of me. I sent a sergeant to one place for information of the whereabouts of the enemy. I also sent for and procured a Union man for a guide. I learned that the enemy were crossing the river two miles and a half below Cote Sans Dessein, at the farm of one Swan Ferguson. I delayed no time after receiving information, but moved at once. At about 1 o'clock I arrived at the farm of Ferguson. Not seeing any camp-fires of the enemy, I sent two men, dismounted, to reconnoiter for his camp. In about one hour his camp was found, or rather his point of crossing, with a few men and horses still remaining on this side. I dismounted all of my men, leaving ten men to guard the horses. I went into the brush with my men and moved cautiously, and surrounded the point at which the enemy were crossing the river, and arriving at their fires found that I was too late. The last load had crossed intervening the time that the camp was discovered and the report could reach me and I could move to the place of the crossing. It was pitch darkness, thick brush and heavy timber to pass through. My information up to this time had been that the enemy were crossing in skiffs. I remained on the ground till daylight, and ascertained that Dorsey had captured a steam-boat at dusk, but I did not learn the name of the steam-boat.
    On my return to this place a detachment of one sergeant and five men of my command pursued two of Dorsey' men from the river a distance of fifteen miles, following them by their tracks, overhauled them, killed 1, mortally wounded the other, and slightly wounded a third, who had fallen in company with the two. A short time before my men came upon them, captured their arms and equipments, consisting of blankets, saddle-bags, and a regular outfit for the brush confederacy. One pair of the saddle-bags had a new pair of Federal cavalry pants in them. Conscripts are coming in slowly. I think this country is quiet for the present, but I cannot tell how long it will remain so. It is with much difficulty that we can obtain information from citizens as to where an enemy is in this country.
    General, I am, with much respect, your obedient servant, D. Dale, Major Fourth Cav., Missouri State Mil., Comdg. at Fulton, Mo. (Brig. Gen. E B Brown).

As I leave here, for some "other" Place, in a day or two - As to where I shall go 'tis scarcely yet known to myself - Perhaps when I write again 'twill be from some foreign port - I am no Citizen of the United States as you are aware of, therefore can promise myself nothing but eternal trouble by coming to Mo. where there has been so much trouble among the contending parties -
    Write to John & Tom & say that they will hear from me soon - I have been in unusual good health all winter & spring - have not had a line or heard a word from any of you since November last -
    I shall try and find a country where you can join me if you wish it -
    W H E & "Sallie G's" "George" are with me - Both in moderate health - Crocket is also with me & well - I cannot yet write you a letter that is at all satisfactory & will therefore make this as short as possible - I do not design joining either party in this country unless some unlooked for change takes place in the present status of affairs --
    Presently kindest regards & sympathy to my old friends --
    The Boys wish to be kindly remembered to their friends - and send much love to you --
    With much love to all I am as ever Devotedly

In all there are 4,500 acres, 3,300 being devoted to grain-growing, the balance to pasture and stock range. The Colonel makes a specialty of breeding blooded stock, and on his place may be seen some of the finest stallions to be found in the country, sired by Nutwood and other famous runners and trotters. In addition to blooded stock he also raises mules in considerable numbers, and some years ago made a specialty of sheep-raising.

    After the War between the States it was difficult for southern people to get established for farming in a new country. The Dorsey brothers had but two teams of mules for use in sowing wheat; one plowed in the daytime and one at night using a lantern hung on the plowbeam. Impressed with the new land, Philip C Barbour Ewing returned to Kentucky and from his plantations brought out to the ranch mules, cattle and some of his blooded horses, shipping via the new overland railroad.

  840. Annals of Stanislaus County, Vol I, p 60. Burneyville enjoyed the distinction of being the head of navigation on the Stanislaus River, at least for a short time.

    In June, 1868, the Stanislaus Steam Navigation Company was incorporated under an act of legislature passed the previous April. The company was to clear the Stanislaus River of all obstructions in the way of trees, snags, and so forth. This they did, from Burneyville (ed: now Riverbank) west to the mouth of the river. The first steamer to make the trip was the Clara Crow. A small sternwheeler then twenty years of age and already a veteran in river transportation. The steamboat company invited the board of supervisors to make this trip, but on one, Caleb Dorsey, made the maiden voyage. The Clara Crow left Stockton on May 1, 1869, and that night they tied up at E E Taylor's ferry near the present Caswell Park. The next day they steamed into Burneyville to be greeted by a large crowd of citizens. The steamer loaded forty tons of grain and the next day it departed downstream.

A CONTROVERSY CONCERNING A WOOL CONSIGNMENT - In the case of Watt & McLennan vs. Caleb Dorsey & Bros., Judge Morrison Saturday passed upon the defendants' motion of a new trial, saying, in effect, that the defendants were sheep raisers and wool growers in Stanislaus County, and they consigned their wool to the plaintiffs, wool graders in this city. The plaintiff's sold the consignments and made returns to the defendants. Subsequently it was ascertained by grading the wool that some 1,900 pounds or it was not what it was represented to be, and plaintiffs informed the defendants that they had paid them too much. The defendants refused to refund, and this action was brought to recover the amount. The Court said the evidence was conflicting. The defendant, Dorsey, testified that he informed McLennan that his former consignee, Mr Wise, had made a claim for bad wool after grading; that he became dissatisfied and changed his consignments to McLennan. He also swore that he told McLennan that no charge must be made for bad wool after grading. McLennan testified that he had no recollection of such a conversation. It was stated by the defendants'counsel that Dorsey was a man of strict veracity. The Court was inclined to think an error might have been made in giving judgment for plaintiff, and an opportunity would be given to try the merits of the case before a jury, and therefore a new trial would be granted.

    Cattle stealing has for a year past been prosecuted industriously in this county - indeed, it has seemed that it would rise to the rank of an industry, so diligently and openly has it been carried on. The residents in the southern portion of the county have suffered most. A check is likely to be put on the business now. On Friday nigh, the 4th instant, 20 head of fine steers were stolen from the farm of Marion Biggs, Jr., some 12 miles south of this city. Mr. Biggs was absent at the time, in Colusa county. He was sent for, and arrived here on the Monday night following. News met him of the cattle having been heard of near Ione City. He notified the Sheriff and Chief of Police here, and gave such extended notice as was possible, and set out on the trail of the thieves. He soon learned that the cattle had been driven by out of the way routes into Amador county. The thieves must, have made 35 or 40 miles the first day, reaching a point within three or four miles of Ione City, where they rested on Saturday, and then crossed the Mokelumne at Green's crossing, reaching Martels, 18 miles from Ione, on Saturday night. Messrs. Steinberger and Surface, of Ione, heard from a sheepherder of the arrival of a drove of strange cattle near that place, and of the suspicious actions of two or three men in charge of it. On Sunday, though they had not heard then of the larceny, they started to follow the men. They were accompanied by a herder known as "Nat." who drove them back to Charles Blithers' near Ione, where he rested Sunday night. That night one of the thieves rode up to Blithers, and asked if any stray cattle had been seen there. Before he received reply he saw the cattle in the corral and proceeded to turn them out. "Nat" interfered and told him if he owned the stock to come and Monday and prove his claim. The fellow then put the spurs to his horse and galloped off in the direction of Martels. Steinberger and Surface got no trace of the thieves and returned to Ione. Sheriff John Vogan, of Amador, who started in response to a telegram from Biggs, arrived at Freshowers on the Calaveras river in search of the thieves, and he there received information that induced him to go off in a northerly direction to look for them. During this time Mr. Biggs was following the trail. He arrived at Blithers and identified his cattle. He rode on to Martels, and thence to Comanche, Campo Seco and Freshowers, and there learned that the thieves, with singular inconsistency, had attended church on Sunday near the Calaveras line, and while at their devotions the ten head of steers which Steinberger, Surface and "Nat" susequently found had wandered off from the heard, which occasioned the return of one of the thieves to Blithers, as stated. At Freshowers Mr. Biggs found that Sheriff Vogan had already been there, and had gone north on a false scent. It was now Wednesday, and on that day he learned for the first time of the identity of two of the thieves, William Williams and Benjamin Gill. Some people declared there were three men in the gang, others insisted that but two drove the cattle. Information was now had of the cattle being seen on the road toward Modesto, and Biggs pushed on to Milton, where he was met by Sheriff Vogan. It was 45 miles to Modesto and 23 to Stockton, and the party concluded to go to the latter place and reach Modest by rail, meantime sending a man across countyr to follow the trail of the thieves. At Stockton Sheriff Thomas Cunningham joined in the hunt, and the party proceeded to Modesto., where Hon. Caleb Dorsey and Sheriff A S Fulkerth, of Stanislaus, united with it in the search for the property and the thieves...

We, the undersigned, have seen the combined harvester above described, know as the "Shippee Harvester," built at Stockton, with Shippee & Grattan improvements, working in the field. It does first class work - cutting, thrashing, cleaning, sacking, and saving the grain. The machine is eleven foot cut, and was worked by two men and ten horses. It was taking a full cut in a field yielding from twenty to thirty-five bushels of wheat per acre. We recommend it to the farming community and public with pleasure, as being a wonderful laborsaving machine, as also saving much more grain than by heading and thrashing separately.

    Grain fires are numerous but perhaps one of the largest in financial loss was the fire of July 20, 1884. It occurred near the Burnett railroad station and fully 5,000 acres of grain were destroyed, involving a loss in insurance figures of over $100,000, with only $22,000 insurance. How the fire started is not known; it was first noticed in a corner of Colonel Caleb Dorsey's ranch, and as a heavy wind was blowing it spread rapidly. Two men from the McHews' harvesting crew going into Oakdale filled up on liquor and returning to the thresher stopped at the corner and lighted their pipes. Carelessly they threw their matches away and this probably started the fire. W C Carmichael says he saw the men smoking, indifferently looking at the flame. He ran to them and commanded them to assist him in putting out the fire. He soon saw the danger and running to Colonel Dorsey's house phoned in the alarm. In a few minutes hundreds of men from Oakdale and other points were hurrying to the scene, carrying with them wet sacks, pieces of blanket and sticks to beat out the flames. B F Reynolds, on his ranch three miles distant, says the flames at times lifted by the wind would leap thirty or forty fee into the air. He hastened to the fire with his water wagon filled with water to assist in keeping the sacks wet and provide the men with water to drink. Another farmer while trying to get his threshing machine out of the range of the fire was encompassed by a whirlwind of flame and the two horses were so badly burned that one of them was shot to put him out of his misery. In a short time dozens of men were seen about Oakdale with their arms blistered or badly burned and several of them with the hair burned from their heads. The fire was finally checked by back firing and a long strip of plowed land. The losses as computed by insurance exceeded $100,000. Caleb Dorsey's loss was $30,000 on grain, besides losing a Shippe combined header and thresher and a steam threshing machine. Robinson and Carey lost $20,000, insured, $7,000. H Graney, $4,000; Isaac Watson, $16,000; Paulsell and Muncey, $16,000. Some of the grain was insured at seven dollars per acre, but as the yield was very heavy the insurance did not cover twenty-five per cent of the loss.
  893. San Francisco Bulletin, P 3. A BATTLE WITH FIRE; THOUSANDS OF ACRES BURNED OVER ON THE PLAINS OF SAN JOAQUIN; The Farmers, After a Well-Organized Struggle, Check the Flames; An Estimated Loss of $90,000, with an Insurance of $32,000.

    Modesto, July 21st - Yester day morning news was brought to this place over the telephone that the whole country was on fire north of Oakdale or just across the Stanislaus river, near Burnett's station...The fire broke out on the northwest corner of Col. Caleb Dorsey's ranch, about five miles from the river. It is supposed that two men were smoking, and that the fire from their pipes caught the grain and before they noticed it, it got under such headway that no one could go near enough to put it out...The fire started about 10 o'clock and it was not under control until 3:30. During this time it had run about five miles and covered a country three miles wide, destroying some of the finest grain in the valley. It was reported that several farm houses had been destroyed. Col. Dorsey lost one of his tenant houses and the barn, valued at $900. He also lost a thrashing machine and one of Shippee's combined headers and thrashers, valued at about $3,000...
    PROBABLE LOSSES.
    As everybody was excited it is impossible at this time to tell exactly what the losses will amount to. As near as could be learned from the insurance men it is as follows: Col. Dorsey, 1,040 acres; loss $30,00; no insurance; also one house and barn, $900; one of Shippee's combined header and thrasher and one steam thrashing machine, $3,600; partly insured. R Robinson, or Robinson and Carey, 1,200 acres: loss, $20,000; insurance, $7 per acre. L. Grainger, 120 acres; loss, $4,000; insurance, $10 per acre. Isaac Watson, 900 acres; loss, $16,000; insurance, $7 per acre. Paulsel & Muncy, 200 acres; loss, $16,000; insurance, $7 per acre. Total loss, $90,100; total insurance, $23,200.

    Caleb Dorsey subscribed for 100 shares of the Pacific Trust Company's stock on the formation of the bank. He gave his note in payment of an assessment of 10 per cent and received therefore a stock certificate representing the amount of the note. Subsequently he refused to pay the note under the section of the constitution which provides that "No corporation shall issue stocks or bonds, except for money paid, labor done, or property actually received, and all fictitious increase of stock shall be void." The bank brought suit in the Superior Court of San Joaquin county for the amount of the note, and obtained judgment which judgment has been affirmed by the Supreme Court, which holds that the word "property" in the section quoted includes personal property which includes "things in action and evidence of debt.".

    Colonel Caleb Dorsey, the well known horseman and miner, was shot and killed at his mine near Columbia, in Tuolumne county, yesterday morning by J C Newcomer, his partner in the mine and his life-long friend, according to the stories that are told of the men. As far as can be learned there were no witnesses to the killing, and Newcomer asserts that he did it in self defense, and further than that he will not talk at present, though he has given himself up to Sheriff Yancey of Tuolumne county, and in the County Jail at Sonora...A nephew of the dead man works at the mine, but he did not see this shooting [might have been Edward Worthington Dorsey, son of Caleb's brother Thomas Beale Dorsey], though he may know something of the quarrel which preceded it. It remained at the mine when Newcomer started for Sonora to give himself up and he will not come from the mine until he returns with the Coroner in the morning. Colonel Dorsey was a brother of Mrs. Ewing of this city and an uncle of Dr. J D Young, of the medical corps at the State Insane Asylum. The Colonel had a relative named Charles Potter, who lived with him on the ranch and he was apprised of the killing as soon as possible yesterday. Mr. Potter was in Stockton yesterday and left for the ranch early in the forenoon. On his arrival at Oakdale yesterday afternoon the news of the killing was was told him and, acting on the advice of Dr. Young, who could not leave the city, he made arrangements to visit the ranch and caught the night stage for Sonora, where he would arrive at an early hour this morning. It was arranged that he should take charge of the remains in Sonora to day and bring them to this city for interment. The funeral will be held in this city at a time in to be announced hereafter. The deceased was a member of Stockton Commandery, Knights Templar, and had many warm friends in this city and county. He spent much of his leisure time here and frequently visited the local lodges of the Masonic fraternity. Colonel Dorsey has a brother, Thomas Dorsey, who resides at San Jose and who has been interested with the Colonel in several mining deals...
    AN ACCOUNT FROM SONORA; Sonora, April 21. - Colonel Caleb Dorsey of Oakdale, wealthy and prominent mine owner and rancher, was shot and killed at the Dorsey mine, eleven miles from Columbia, in this county, at 9 o'clock this morning by his mining partner, J T Newcomer, over a dispute that ensued upon Dorsey charging Newcomer with cleaning up and misappropriating the amalgam without the Colonel's knowledge. The defendant will claim justifiable homicide. He alleges that during the wrangle Colonel Dorsey attempted to draw his gun, with the usual result of being too slow. The matter has created the most profound sensation, owning to the age and standing of both parties in the community. Both gentlemen were between 60 and 70 years old. Mr. Newcomer absolutely refuses to talk until he consults counsel. He left the scene of the killing before his victim expired and came to Sonora and surrendered himself to the Sheriff. There were no eye witnesses to the affair. Mr. Dorsey died before any one reached him. The preliminary examination will be set to morrow.

  921. Sonora Banner, April 24, 1896. DEATH OF COL. DORSEY;
    The people were surprised and startled last Tuesday morning when word reached Sonora that Col. Caleb Dorsey, of Oakdale, had been shot and killed by J T Newcomer.
    The particulars of the homicide are meager, as there were no witnesses to the tragedy. The mouth of Col. Dorsey is closed by death and his lips will never tell his side of the controversy. J T Newcomer pleads self-defense and his statements are to the effect that during the difficulty the Colonel made a move to draw his revolver and he, Newcomer, had to fire to save his life.
    At about three o'clock Tuesday afternoon Fred G. Burden, acting Coroner, went to the place of the murder, at the Snell mine, some twenty miles above Columbia, and held an inquest, at which it was developed that early on the morning mentioned Col. Dorsey mounted his horse and rode over to the cabin of J T Newcomer, distant a mile and a quarter from the Colonel's house. What preceded the shooting no one, except Newcomer, knows. It is in evidence that Dorsey entered the cabin and there the two men had a dispute relating to matters connected with the Star mine, in which Newcomer held a fourth interest. It is stated Newcomer had an objection to the management of the property and suggested that a receiver be appointed, to which the Col. sternly objected. Whether the killing was an outcome of that different opinion we do not know.
    Two shots were fired. One entered near the chest, the other close to the junction of the arm and the shoulder. The lower wound must have been the first inflicted as the bullet at the shoulder ranted downward as though it struck while the Col. was falling.
    After the shooting Newcomer left the cabin, closed and locked the door, mounted Dorsey's horse, rode to the Star mine, gave the key to the cook there and informed him of the shooting, stating that he did not know whether or not Dorsey was dead. The cook in turn gave the key to the Superintendent who went to the cabin and there found the dead body of Dorsey. The body was lying flat on the back, feet toward the fireplace and right hand under. An examination of the body showed that deceased had no weapon of any kind, J T Newcomer then continued his way to Sonora and surrendered himself to the Sheriff and was placed in jail.
    The remains were brought down on pack animals Wednesday night and a post mortem was held, at which it was demonstrated that the lower bullet had passed through the body and lodged itself in the back; the supper or neck shot, ranted downward and pierced the backbone between the fourth and fifth ribs. The remains were taken to Stockton yesterday for interment.
    The killing of Col. Dorsey has sent a thrill of regret throughout a large portion of the State. His death is a dreadful calamity to his relatives, especially to his cousins in Sonora, the family of the late C. C. Dorsey, for whom much sympathy is expressed. He was an old resident of Stanislaus county and there his honorable record has placed him high among the business men. He leaves a large estate, but unfortunately it is encumbered. He was native of Howard county, Maryland, and was 63 years of age. The slayer, J T Newcomer, has resided in this county some five years, during which time he had followed the vocation of a miner. He is a man of unbounded hospitality and sociability. He bears a creditable name among his acquaintances, and is a man noted for his quietness and attention to his own business. He is seventy years of age. If there could be anything to make the tragedy more and it would be the fact that the two men were bosom friends, and were never known to have a word of trouble up to the killing.
  922. Oakdale Graphic, April 22, 1896. COL. CALEB DORSEY; Shot and Killed by His Mining Partner;
    A telephone message from Sonora yesterday announced the death of Col. Caleb Dorsey of Oakdale. He was shot by his mining partner, J T Newcomer, at the mine, several miles north of Sonora. Newcomer gave himself up to the Sheriff of Tuolumne county, saying he killed his partner in self defence, but would say nothing further about the tragedy. The Coroner and a number of others proceeded immediately to the mine to hold an inquest and bring in the body of deceased.
    Messages from Sonora this morning say the Coroner has returned and reports that J T Newcomer shot Col. Caleb Dorsey with a revolver, one bullet penetrating the side and another the stomach.
    The body of Dorsey will be packed over the trail from the mine to Columbia, a distance of 15 miles, and will reach Sonora at 5 o'clock this afternoon.
    It is supposed that the remains will reach Oakdale to-morrow morning in time to be shipped to Stockton by the morning train.
    Newcomer, according to reports received here, says Dorsey accused him of stealing the amalgam. Newcomer called Dorsey a liar. Dorsey reached for his hip pocket as though to draw a pistol. Newcomer fired two shots, killing Dorsey instantly. Newcomer then started in haste for Sonora.
    Mr. Porter, a nephew of Col. Dorsey, went to Sonora last night. He says his uncle never went armed.
    The flag on the Masonic Hall at Oakdale is at half-mast, Col Dorsey being a member of the Lodge here.
  923. Oakdale Weekly Leader, Friday, April 24, 1896. COL. DORSEY KILLED; He is Shot by J T Newcomer, His Mining Partner;
    Col. Caleb Dorsey was shot and killed on Tuesday last about noon by J T Newcomer, his mining partner. The tragedy occurred at the mine, nineteen miles from Sonora, in a remote locality, accessible only by pack mules. Newcomer came direct to Sonora and gave himself up, saying that he had killed Colonel Dorsey in self-defense. He was very reticent, but finally said that the cause of the shooting grew out of Dorsey's accusing him of stealing amalgam from the mine. He replied that he (Dorsey) was a d---n liar. Whereupon the deceased reached for his weapon, but being too slow, Newcomer got the first two shots and killed him, one ball entering the side and the other the breast.
    The Coroner's jury found a verdict that the deceased came to his death from wounds inflicted by J T Newcomer.
    Col. Dorsey was apparently a most peacable man, and his friends are reluctant to believe that he was the aggressor. He and Newcomer were old friends and they regard it as absurd that they should quarrel over such a trivial cause.
    The remains were shipped to Stockton via Milton yesterday and the funeral will be held to-day at 2 PM under the auspices of the Masonic fraternity. The following representations of Oakdale Lodge No. 275, F&AM, attended; J. Haslacher, Chas. T. Tullock, J. W. Tulloch, I. H. Clay, Geo. F. Stearns, E. L. Barkis, Dr. J. G. Thompson and Geo. W. Wigley.

    J C Newcomer was held to answer without bonds for the killing of Col. Dorsey. Newcomer did not testify.

  925. Modesto Daily Evening News, Thursday Evening, April 23, 1896, p 1. COL. DORSEY'S DEATH; All Indications Show That He Was Killed Without Justification;
    From J S Alexander, of this city, who returned from Columbia late last night, we learn the following particulars of the killing of Colonel Caleb Dorsey. It shows very conclusively that the Colonel was assassinated by J T Newcomer.
    Mr. Alexander had a lengthy conversation with the Deputy Coroner of Tuolumne county after he had returned from the scene of the killing. The murder took place in Newcomer's house and the Colonel was lying dead upon the floor with his feet toward said nearly into the fireplace. The Colonel had on his overcoat and was lying upon his back with one hand under his body. There was no pistol on his person nor a weapon found in the house though a thorough search was made. Newcomer rode Col. Dorsey's horse to Columbia and from there to Sonora where he surrendered himself to Sheriff Yancey of Tuolumne county. There was no witness to the homicide. A man named Bailey was in the vicinity and Newcomer placed the young man in charge of the remains while he went to the county seat to surrender. The young man did not disturb the remains but had to sweep the fire back in the open fire-place to prevent it from burning the dead man's feet.
    Mr. Alexander was told by a few people with whom he spoke that Newcomer, the slayer of Colonel Dorsey was a very quarrelsome man and had had a number or bitter personal disputes with others quite recently. He is about 70 years of age. The theory of the deputy coroner is that Col. Dorsey was standing before the fireplace with his back to the fire and his hands behind him, warming himself, when shot.
    The funeral of the late Colonel will take place at Stockton, but we have not yet learned the date.
  926. Columbia, MO Herald, 8 May 1896. COLONEL CALEB DORSEY; His Killing Thought to Have Been Unprovoked - He Had an Excellent War Record:
    May inquiries have recently been made by his friends concerning the death of Colonel Caleb Dorsey, who was shot and killed in Tuolumne county, California, by a man named Newcomber, who was interested with him in a gold mine and mill in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, some distance from Sonora, Colorado. Dorsey was raised in Pike county, Missouri, and had numerous friends throughout the state. He served in the confederate army as a lieutenant colonel of a regiment in Shelby's Brigade, throughout the war of the rebelion(sic). He was universally respected and beloved wherever he was known, both here and in California, where he has resided on a ranche(sic) in Stanislaus county since the close of the war. From the best and most recent information obtained, it appears that no other persons were present at the time of the shooting -- it was done in a cabin near the mill, and after the shooting Newcomber locked the door and went over to the mine, which was about a mile off, and delivered the key to the cook -- said he had shot Dorsey in self-defense -- then went off.
    In a recent number or a Stockton paper just received appears the following: "The prevailing opinion seems to be that the killing of Colonel Dorsey, who was shot on Tuesday, April 21, was unprovoked and not in self-defense, as his slayer alleges. Colonel Dorsey had no weapon upon him, and no one can be found who does not say that he was never known to provoke a man to anger in private life. Mr. Rutherford, of Stockton, who knew Colonel Dorsey during the civil war, gave some interesting particulars of his life during the war, which stamp him as one of the bravest. coolest men who fought with General Price in the west. He said: 'After the war General Price told me that he considered Colonel Dorsey one of the most discreet, cool and brave men in his command, and that he would rather trust him with any delicate mission, or one that required unquestioned courage, than any other man in his army.'
    "Mr. Rutherford knew Colonel Dorsey from boyhood, and never before knew him to have a personal difficulty with anyone. He ended the interview by saying 'During all my acquaintance with Colonel Dorsey I never knew him to have an enemy; he never sought trouble and was too much respected for anyone even to offer him an insult.
    The above is taken from the St. Louis Record of last ----??---- Col. Dorsey will be well remembered by all familiar with the civil war in Boone county, where he commanded a regiment of ex-confederate troops and was the leader of that side in the famous battle at Mount Zion in the northeastern section of Boone county. Gen. Prentiss, we believe, commanding he federals. Col. Dorsey was highly esteemed, and was a brave soldier and a man of attractive personality. He was the brother of Mrs. Col. James O. Broadhead of St. Louis.

    Colonel Caleb Dorsey, a mining man, well known in this city, and who has a brother, T B Dorsey, residing at 405 South Tenth Street, was shot and killed near Stockton yesterday afternoon, at a mine in which he was interested with J T Newcomer. The latter was the slayer, firing two shots at Dorsey both taking effect.
    The scene of the tragedy was about fifteen miles from Columbia a short distance from Stockton and occurred at 1:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon. A telegram from Stockton says:
    "The killing resulted from a dispute over a mine in which the two men were interested. After the shooting Newcomer went to Columbia by the trail leading from the mine to the town. When he arrived there he was almost breathless from the trip, which he made on foot. To Telephone Agent Davis he said that he had killed Dorsey in order to save his own life, but he was to excited to give any further particulars and hastened on to Sonora, where he surrendered himself into the custody of the Sheriff.
    "The only witness to the killing of Dorsey was the nephew of the murdered man, and he could not be reached at a late hour yesterday. As soon as the news of the killing was received at Columbus a number of men started on foot for the mine, among them the Coroner..."He was about 55 years of age. He has a brother lining in San Jose. Dorsey has owned the mine over which he was killed for the past twenty years, the property bearing his name. About six months ago Newcomer came from Texas to Columbia and purchased an interest in the mine. He had very little to say about the affair after surrendering to the authorities at Sonora and merely reiterated the statement made to the operator at Columbia that he shot in self-defense. Dorsey is connected by marriag with the family of General Young, one of the physicians on the asylum staff here, and has a sister living here, Mrs. L. E. D. Ewing." The young man who was the only witness to the shooting was E. W. Dorsey of San Jose. The deceased was 63 years old. He was a Colonel in the Confederate army under General Price in the Missouri campaign.
  928. St. Louis Republic, 5 May 1896, p. 3. COLONEL CALEB DORSEY; HIS KILLING THOUGHT TO HAVE BEEN UNPROVOKED - HE HAD AN EXCELLENT WAR RECORD

    Many inquiries have recently been made by his friends concerning the death of Colonel Caleb Dorsey, who was shot and killed in Tuolumne County, California, by a man named Newcomber, who was interested with him in a gold mine and mill in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, some distance from Sonora, Colo. Dorsey was raised in Pike County, Misouri(sic), and had numerous friends throughout the State.

CAUSE OF THE COUMBIA FEUD; DORSEY AND NEWCOMER HAD NOT PROSPERED AT MINING; DISPUTES OVER DEBTS; ONE WANTED THE APPOINTMENT OF A RECEIVER FOR THEIR PROPERTY; HIS DEMAND WAS OPPOSED; THE COLONEL'S ATTEMPT TO DRAW A PISTOL CAUSED HIS PARTNER TO OPEN FIRE;

    Sonora, Cal., April 22. - The Coroner's inquest throws no new light on the killing of Colonel Caleb T. Dorsey, and J. T. Newcomer, the homicide, still positively refuses to make a statement of kind regarding the cause of the killing. W. H. Bailey gave the most important testimony at the inquest. Newcomer having given him, briefly, the reasons for his act.
    "The first I knew of any trouble was Tuesday morning between 8 and 9 o'clock," said Bailey. "Mr. Newcomer came to the house and turned over the keys to his cabin to me, saying he had shot Colonel Dorsey. He wanted me to go down and take charge of the place. I asked him how it happened and he said he asked the colonel to appoint a receiver for their mine, and the colonel said he would have gold enough to pay everything. Hot words followed and Dorsey reached for his pistol, but Newcomer drew his first and fired. He said he did not know if he had killed Dorsey or not, but thought that he had. He then rode away and said that he was going to Sonora to give himself up."
    Newcomer is reported as having said in Columbia on yesterday that Dorsey accused him of stealing amalgam from the mills. He called Dorsey a liar. Dorsey reached for his pistol, but Newcomer got in the first shot. Dorsey's nephew, as well as others who were at the mine at the time of the shooting, knew of no trouble between the partners. Dorsey's pistol could not be found, although it was his custom to carry one always. The searchers did find cartridges on his person.
    Dorsey's friends attempted to bring his body out from the mine on a mule to-day. The mule became fretful and unmanageable and after hard work they succeeded in getting the body from its back, and enfolding it in a blanket, strapped it to a buckboard. They are bringing the corpse by the wagon road via Sugar Pine, a distance of thirty-five miles. It will reach Sonora before morning.
    Colonel Dorsey was a cousin of the late Caleb Dorsey, for many years District Attorney of this county and a prominent mining lawyer. The Colonel was a Mason of high rank.

    Templeton, Cal., April 25. - C. H. Beauchamp of this place was an old-time friend of Colonel Caleb T. Dorsey, who was killed by his mining partner, J T Newcomer, near Columbia. He said today:
    "I have know the Dorseys ever since 1858, when I met John and Thomas Dorsey in Stanislaus County, where they were in the cattle business. Thomas Dorsey shot a Mexican cattle thief once at a rodeo; but they were unusually peaceful and quit men.
    "Colonel Caleb Dorsey I met in the same place after the war. He was engaged in raising horses at Oakdale, Stanislaus County. My acquaintance with him extended over a period of fifteen or sixteen years, and in all that time he never carried a pistol. He was a frequent visitor at my house, and stopped often over nights, so should have know if he had a weapon. It is unlikely that he commenced carrying one at this late day, and I believe that he was murdered."
    Beauchamp is an old Kentuckian, and anxious for Dorsey's reputation as a peaceful, law-abiding citizen.
  931. San Jose Evening News, 23 April 1896, Vol. XXIX Issue 103, p. 4. HAD NO WEAPON; NEWCOMER'S STORY NOT SUPPORTED BY THE EVIDENCE; Colonel Dorsey Was Unarmed When Killed in His Slayer's Cabin. Two Shots Fired.
    Investigations into the circumstances of the killing of Colonel Dorsey, brother of T. B. Dorsey, of San Jose, near Stockton Tuesday afternoon, shows that E. W. Dorsey of this city, was not a witness to the tragedy as first reported; that there were no witnesses. A telegram from Stockton says: The only evidence before the Coroner's jury was that of the cook, and Edward Dorsey, nephew of the deceased, [son of T. B. Dorsey] both of whom were at the mine. Newcomer lives in a cabin one mile from the mine, and as the killing occurred in the cabin and there was no witness there is little to show the cause of the killing. Both the superintendent and the cook tell the same story of how the Colonel left the mine Tuesday morning to go to Newcomer's cabin, and that was the last time he was seen alive by either of them. He said he thought he would go down to Newcomer at home and the quarrel that followed can only be told by the prisoner. After the shooting Newcomer locked up his cabin, leaving Dorsey lying on the floor, and, mounting the Colonel's horse, he rode up to the mine and told the cook he had shot the Colonel. Dorsey hastened to the cabin and, on opening the door, found the Colonel lying on the floor dead, with one arm under his body. A search of the body showed that the Colonel had no weapon and he did not carry a pistol, so the story that he attacked Newcomer and the latter had to kill in self-defense is not supported by that evidence. The superintendent locked up the cabin again and made haste to reach Columbit(sic) to telephone to the authorities. When he reached town the slayer was in jail in Sonora. The body shoed that the Colonel had been shot twice. One bullet entered the stomach and the other went into the neck near the shoulder. Death must have almost immediately resulted for the body lay in a natural position. The Coroner's jury found that the deceased came to his his(sic) death by gunshot wounds supposed to have been inflicted by J. D. Newcomer. Newcemer(sic) is a very small man, about seventy years of age. He is quite cool and seems to appreciate his position, but he refuses to give any information about the killing further than that he acted in self-defense. The story has got around Sonora, the county seat, that while the Colonel and Newcomer have been good friends from back in war times, Newcomer has recently been dissatisfied with the way the mine was being worked, and has threatened to put the property in the hands of a receiver. He owned one-fourth of the property but Colonel Dorsey was putting up the money to carry on the work, and it is certain that Newcomer received his share of the profits. The mine is one of the group that the Colonel has been interested in for a good many years. He has just erected a three-stamp mill on the property which would have been running in a short time.

    Events Following the Homicide Described by Witnesses for the Prosecution.

    Sonora, Cal., Aug. 11 -- The trial of John To Newcomer for the murder of Caleb Dorsey began in earnest to-day, the twelfth juror being sworn during the morning hours. The District Attorney made a short opening address, reciting the main facts of the killing and then called Thomas B Dorsey, a brother of the murdered man, to the stand.
    Dorsey testified to the general correctness of a map showing the Dorsey mine and surrounding buildings and topographical features. William Bailey, a cook at the mine, testified that on the morning of the shooting he was in the kitchen when Newcomer drove up to the cabin and asked him to come out. Newcomer told him that he had shot Dorsey, but did not know whether he had killed him or not. He was going into Sonora to give himself up. He handed to Bailey a key to the cabin where he and Dorsey lived and told him to go down and look after the wounded man. Bailey gave the key to Samuel Bateman, who went down to the place to look after the colonel.
    Samuel Bateman stated that on the day of the shooting he noticed in the mine -?- a pistol which belong to Dorsey: of the neck on the right and below the ribs near the abdomen. Bateman state that Edward Dorsey, a son of the murdered man, had gone down to the cabin where his father's body lay, but did not go in, and at no time did he see him with his father's pistol.
    Charles Owens was the last witness of the day and merely testified to the fact that on the day of the murder, while he was at the mine, Newcomer had told him that Colonel Dorsey was up in the woods cutting timber for firewood. This is important so far as Newcomer's veracity is concerned, as all that the colonel lay cold in death.

    Sonora, Cal., Aug. 15. -- John T. Newcomer, the slayer of his aged mining partner, Colonel Caleb Dorsey, was to-day found guilty of murder in the second degree. The jury was out ten hours before the verdict was reached. Byron Waters, the attorney for Newcomer, will move for a new trial on Monday.
    In his closing argument this morning District Attorney Otis reviewed the testimony in an exhaustive manner and pointed out to the jury the weak spots in the defendant's plea of justification or self-defense. From the trend of the District Attorney's remarks it was evident that he did not expect a verdict of murder in the first degree, and he gave the jury practically to understand that his side would be satisfied with a verdict of manslaughter.
    Otis closed his speech by assuring the jury that all he wished was justice, and whatever the verdict he would know that in rendering it every member of the jury was actuated by conscientious motives.
    Judge Nicol at 11:30 o'clock commenced his instructions to the jury, taking a half hour in the delivery. The jury retired, and did not arrive at an agreement until 9 o'clock. The aged defendant gave no outward sign of emotion when the verdict was read.
  946. San Jose Mercury News, P 4. HE HAD A GUN; IMPORTANT EVIDENCE WHICH MAY SAVE COLONEL DORSEY'S SLAYER; Tragedy at the Mining Camp ---Confession of a Cook Who Hid the Pistol.
    Colonel Caleb Dorsey of San Jose was killed a few months ago near Sonora by J T Newcomer, his partner in a mine. The tragedy occurred in Newcomer's cabin where Dorsey had gone to discuss business matters. Newcomer claimed that during the quarrel he thought Dorsey was going to kill him, and fired in self defense.
    After the shooting, Newcomer rode to Sonora and surrendered. At the trial efforts of the defense to prove that Dorsey was armed proved fruitless and Newcomer was convicted of manslaughter. New and important evidence has been discovered, which may save Newcomer from prison.
    A telegram from Sonora says: It is more than possible that J T Newcomer, who is now in and under sentence of eleven years to San Quentin for the killing of Colonel Caleb Dorsey, may escape the penitentiary owing to newly discovered evidence.
    Newcomer is till held here pending a motion in the Supreme Court for a new trial.
    At Newcomer's trial it was proved that at the time of Dorsey's death he was unarmed. For some time past William Bailey, the cook at Dorsey mine, whom Newcomer first informed that he had killed Dorsey, has been drinking quite heavily. Yesterday he informed Ed Doyle of the Union saloon that when he went to Dorsey's cabin after Newcomer had started for Sonora to surrender to the officers, he took Dorsey's pistol from his body and hid it under the floor in the next room.
    Bailey and Doyle left here at 4 o'clock this morning on horseback. They went to the cabin and found the pistol where Bailey had hidden it, and brought it to Sonora. The finding of the pistol will probably save Newcomer from going to San Quentin.

  949. San Jose Mercury News, P. 1. DORSEY'S SLAYER; Sonora, November 2 - The second trial of John T Newcomer for the murder of Caleb Dorsey, of San Jose was begun in the Superior Court here yesterday, Judge Nicols presiding. The day was consumed in getting a jury. The opening statements were made and the taking of testimony began today.
    The trial is expected to last throughout the week, and the opinion here is that it will result in either an acquittal or a disagreement. Since the termination of the last trial, Colonel Dorsey's pistol has been found, and this fact may materially alter the situation.
  950. Court Records - Tuolumne County, Archive 3142. JT Newcomer is acquitted of murder; basic argument was that the instructions of the judge in the murder trial had given incorrect instructions, and that the element of self defense was not correctly assessed. The essential element of "intent" was not ever established or proven - Caleb Dorsey was known to be hot-tempered, quick to react, and comfortable with firearms - Newcomer was well within his rights to assume that he was going to draw on him.

    However, 18 Mar 1903, JT Newcomer committed suicide in a remote cabin in Tuolumne County. After being acquitted of the murder of Dorsey, he was never able to recover his life, was ostracized by the community. "Feared by his neighbors and without friends, he finally turned on himself the weapon which wrecked his life and his fortune." (SF Call Newspaper, 20 Mar 1903).

  951. San Francisco Call, Friday, March 20, 1903, P. 5, Col. 7. PISTOL BULLET ENDS HIS LIFE; Sonora Miner, Acquitted of Murder, Commits Suicide;
    Sonora, March 19. - J. T. Newcomer, who killed his mining partner, Colonel Caleb Dorsey, a prominent stockman of Stanislaus County, at the Snell mine in this county in April, 1896, committed suicide last night near the scene of the first tragedy. He fired a bullet into his brain in the presence of his partner, and his dead body now lies unguarded on a cabin floor in a lonely and remote section of the county.
    Newcomer was tried twice for the murder of Colonel Dorsey. He was convicted of murder in the second degree the first time but on the second trial he was acquitted. Self-defense was his plea. The men were alone when the killing occurred. After being released from jail Newcomer returned to the mines, where he worked without success. Feared by his neighbors and without friends, he finally turned on himself the weapon which wrecked his life and his fortune.

  1104. Confederate Veteran, Vol III, No 5, May 1895, p 144. Comrades have written the Veteran of the malicious story revived that President Davis was capture in female attire. Again, others have asked that the ridiculous story that a Federal secured Albert Sidney Johnston's watch at Shiloh be repudiated.
    In refutation of the former, Mrs. Dorsey, who provided liberally for Mr. Davis and family, had his picture made, in citizen suit, that he wore when captured, and it may be seen in the Capitol at Jackson, Miss. It is too well known that the Federals never got possession of Gen. Johnston's body, for that tale to have credence.
    The official telegram by Major-General Wilson from Macon, Ga., to Gen. Grant and to Secretary of War Stanton, dated May 12, 8165, at eleven a. m. states that Col. Pritchard and his Michigan Cavalry surprised and captured Jefferson Davis and family, Mr. Reagan, P. M. General; Col. Harrison, private Secretary; Col. Johnston, Aid-de-Camp; Col. Lubbock and others, in camp near Irwinville, Ga.

I Sarah Ann Dorsey of Tensas parish, Louisiana, being aware of the uncertainty of life and being now in sound health of mind and body, do make this my last will and testament, which I write, sign and seal with my own hand in the presence of three competent witnesses, as I possess property in the state of Louisiana, Mississippi and Arkansas, I owe no obligation of any sort whatsoever to any relative of my own. I have done all I could for them during my life, I therefore give and bequeath all my property, real, personal and mixed, wherever located and situated, wholly and entirely without hindrance or qualification, to my most honored and esteeemed friend, Jefferson Davis, ex-president of the Confederate States, for his own sole use and benefit in fee simple and I hereby constitute him my sole heir, executor and administrator. If Jefferson Davis should not survive me I give all that I have bequeathed to him, to his youngest daughter, Varina.
    I do not intend to share in the ingratitude of my country toward the man who is in my eyes the highest and noblest in existence. In testimony whereof I sign this will, written with my own hand, in the presence of W T Walhall, F L Hewes and John C Craig, subscribing witnesses, resident in Harrison County, Mississippi.
    Signed Sarah Ann Dorsey (Seal).

Mr. Dorsey is extensively connected throughout the county, and is the only surviving son of the late Judge Thomas B. Dorsey, who was a distinguished Maryland jurist. The petition was granted by the court.

  1155. History of Tuolumne County California, p 373. CALEB DORSEY
    This gentleman, one of the practicing attorneys of Sonora, was born in Howard County, Maryland, March 25, 1825, receiving there his primary education. When about eighteen years of age, he attended school at Rockville, Maine, and afterwards was prepared for college. He graduated from Harvard College, and received instruction from the celebrated jurists, Greenleaf, Kent , and Judge Story. He studied Law with Robert J. Brent, was admitted to the Bar, and commenced practice at Baltimore, Maryland. Coming to this State via the Isthmus of Panama, he arrived in October, 1850. He came to this county, settled at Shaw's Flat, and mined for six months. At the Flat he erected a sawmill, and conducted that business, in addition to practicing his profession, for nearly two years. Then, settling at Sonora, he opened a law office, since which time he has been practicing his profession. He has held the office of District Attorney for several terms in Tuolumne County. This volume contains numerous references to Mr. Dorsey's career, which, throughout, has been of the greatest importance to the County.

Nothing was done to impose requirements for admission except a certificate of good character which had been sufficient for most of the previous history of the School. I t is true that down to 1865 about two-thirds of the students had been college graduates, but the proportion began to diminish after 1845, and from 1856 to 1870 it suffered a sudden reduction, very likely a result of the Civil War...

Failing in his objects, he removed his mill to Sawmill Flat, and engaged in lumber making, with good success.
  1180. Oakland Tribune, 27 July 1924, pp 8-9 magazine section. Caleb Dorsey, who later became on of the most famous lawyers of the Mother Lode, was taken will with typhoid at Shaw’s Flat in the early days.
                Typhoid fever in ’49 was usually synonymous with death.  There was little hope held out for any man that contracted it in the diggings.  Nurses were unknown, and few miners cared to cease their hunt for gold for several weeks, to care for that kind of a patient.
                Just when Dorsey’s fever was at its highest and all hope gone, Tom heard of it and immediately volunteered to care for him.  Just what old fashioned herbs he used, or just what methods he devised to pull the young attorney through, no one ever knew, but as the crisis passed Dorsey began to recover and in a few months was a well man again.  As long as Caleb Dorsey lived Uncle Tom never lacked a steadfast friend.

    One the 21st day of June, '51, a meeting of the miners of Tuttletown was called for the purpose of taking measures to survey a route for a ditch, to convey the waters of the South Fork of the Stanislaus into Columbia, and the adjacent Camps. Joseph Dance, of Alabama, was Chairman, and J D Patterson, Secretary. A Committee consisting of General Benard, Civil Engineer, J D Patterson and Judge W H Carlton was appointed to make a preliminary survey of the route, and report in two Weeks. --- at the expiration of the time the Committee made a report favorable to the enterprise. The company was then organized at Tuttletown. --- Joseph Dance was chosen President, and J D Patterson, Secretary, and Gen. Benard, Engineer. The company then consisted of twenty-one members. An assessment of five dollars on each member was then made. Another meeting a few days after was called at Shaw's Flat, to induce the people of that Camp to co-operate in the enterprise; and Caleb Dorsey, our present District Attorney, took an active part in favor of the scheme. Another meeting was called, at Columbia, in which P Mc. D. Collins was active in urging the importance of the work. At this meeting the Company was fully organized, and the work was commenced at Summit Pass. The Company persevered under great difficulties on account of the want of means, but were prevented from being obliged to suspend operations by the pecuniary assistance afforded by D O Mills & Co., Bankers, of Sacramento, and who afterwards established a House in Columbia.

    The People ex rel. Dorsey vs. Smyth, County Auditor (No. 545) - At the September election, in 1863, the relator, Caleb Dorsey, and one Hugh G Platt were opposing candidates for the office of District Attorney of Tuolumne county. At that election two hundred and eleven votes were cast for the candidates for that office by soldiers in the military service of the United States. Of these votes Platt received two hundred and ten and Dorsey one. With these votes in Platt was elected, otherwise Dorsey. They were included in the count and Platt declared elected. Thereupon Dorsey brought suit to contest the election upon the ground that the votes in question were illegal, which was finally determined in his favor by the County Court on the 7th of December 1863, and by this Court on appeal at the October term 1864. Prior to the first Monday in march, 1864, at which time the term of office to which he had been elected commenced, the relator duly qualified and anon that day formally demanded from C C Brown, the then incumbent, possession of the office and the books and papers pertaining thereto. On account of the pending controversy between the relator and Pratt, Brown refused to comply with the demand and continued to hold the office and exercise its functions until after the final determination thereof, at which time he surrendered the office to the relator. For the time during which he thus held over, Brown received from the county the salary belonging to the office, amounting to the sumo f seven hundred dollars, which was paid to him in obedience to a mandamus issued by the District Court upon his relation against the Board of Supervisors, to which proceeding neither the relator nor the respondent were parties both however, were cognizant of the prceeding and the judgment thereon. Upon coming into the possission of his office, the relator made claim for the back salary before the respondent and demanded from him a warrant therfor which was refused. Hence the present proceeding.
    The question involved in the case is whether Brown, the old incumbent, or the relator is entitled to the salary for the time during which the former held over. This question is wholly unaffected by the mandamus against the Board of Supervisors. The relator was not a party to that proceeding, nor had the Board any power over to duty to perform touching the salary of his office. The salary of District Attorneys is not audited and allowed by the Board of Supervisors but by the County Auditor. (Wood's Digest, p. 665, Sec 2, and p. 694, Sec 9) Admitting that he could have intervened in that proceeding we know of no rule by which he was compelled to do so, and such being the case his rights in the premises could not be prejudiced by his omitting to do what no rule of law required.
    Every one is presumed to know the law, and therefore Mr. Brown was bound to know under the circumstances who was his successor, and to yield the office upon his qualification and demand. He was bound to act at his peril, and if he held over, and thereafter it should appear that the party so qualifying and demanding the office had at the time a title thereto he could claim nothing on the score of services rendered, for upon the determination of that question he became a usurper ab initio. The salary annexed to a public office in incident to the title to the office, and not to its occupation and exercise. (The People ex rel. Morton, vs. Tieman, 8 Abbott's Practice Reports, 359.) In the case cited the Court said: "The salary and fees are incident to the title, and not to the usurpation and colorable possession of an office. An officer de facto may be protected in the performance of acts done in good faith in the discharge of the duties of an office under color of right, and third persons will not be permitted to question the validity of his acts by impeaching his title to eh office. Public interests require that acts of public officers, who are such de facto, should be respected and held valid as to third persons who have an interest in them, and as concerns the public, in order to prevent a failure of justice (2 Kent's Com., 295). But it does not follow that a right can be asserted and enforced on behalf of one who acts merely under color of office, without legal authority, as if he were an officer de jure. When an individual claims by action the office or the incidents to the office, he can only recover upon proof of title. Possession under color of right nay well serve as a shield for defense, but cannot, as against the public, be converted into a weapon of attack to secure the fruits of the usurpation and incidents to the office."
    The technical objection interposed to the relator's official bond is, in our judgment, untenable.
    Having the title to the office, the relator is entitled to the salary from the commencement of the term for which he was elected, and he cannot be deprived of it by the usurpation of Brown, or the wrongful payment of the same to the latter by the direction of a Court in a proceeding to which he was not a party.
    Peremptory mandamus allowed.

    THE GILSON QUARTZ MINING COMPANY VS. GILSON (3,970)
    PRACTICE - NONSUIT - EQUITY. Findings after judgement of nonsuit, part payment of judgment, equity, interest of stranger to suit - considered.
    Appeal from the District Court of the Fifth Judicial District, Tuolumne County. The action was brought against L. Gilson and E M Hampton to cancel as fraudulent the satisfaction of a judgment obtained against them in a former action. The judgment had been rendered in September, 1866, for the conveyance of a quartz mill and other mining property, and for $7,249.59. The plaintiff, desiring to sell the mining property, agreed with the defendant Gilson, in June 1871, that if he would pay $2,000 cash on the judgment and procure a purchaser for the mining property at $5,000, the judgment should be cancelled.(sic) One Kenfield, who is not a party to this action, claimed to hold eleven shares of the capital stock of plaintiff, each share representing $10. The plaintiff also claimed the stock under a sheriff's sale. June 16th, 1871, Gilson represented to the plaintiff that he had procured a purchaser for the property. He then paid the $2,000 in money, and promised that on the next day, as soon as the deed for the mining property should be drawn and delivered to Kenfield, the latter would pay the $5,000 purchase money by check on Jesse Holliday of San Francisco, having previously exhibited a letter from Holliday, authorizing the transaction. Thereupon, at the request of the defendants, the judgment was cancelled, but before cancelling it the plaintiff induced Kenfield to surrender his claim to the stock. The deed was duly prepared and delivered y the plaintiff, but Kenfield refused to draw the check. The complaint alleges that the proposition as tot he sale of the mining property was not made in good faith, but with a design to fraudulently procure a full satisfaction of the judgment.
    The defendants answered that the consideration for the satisfaction of the judgment was the payment of the $2,000 and the surrender of the stock, and that the matter of the sale of the mining property was a separate transaction entirely. At the trial, afer the plaintiff had introduced his evidence, the court granted a nonsuit on the ground that the plaintiff, before bringing the suit, should have returned the $2,000 to defendants, and retransferred the eleven shares of stock to Kenfield. Subsequently the court filed the findings referred to in the opinion. The plaintiff moved for a new trial, which was denied, and this appeal was then taken from the judgment and from the order refusing new trial.
    Caleb Dorsey for appellant, argued that the findings should be disregarded because not authorized by the code in such a case. He also argued that as the action was not brought for the rescission of a contract, but for fraud and for money due on a judgment, the defendants were not entitled to have the money paid on the judgment return, citing Pierce vs Wood, 3 Foster, 519; Frost vs. Lowery, 15 Ohio, 200.
    ER Colvin and WL Dudley argued that the action was brought for the rescission of a contract for the cancellation of the judgment on the ground of fraud; and that the action could not be maintained until the defendants had first been placed in statu quo. They cited Bohall vs Diller et al
    BY THE COURT [The Gilson Quartz Mining Company vs Gilson, No. 3,970 - Filed Feb 11 1874] 1. The plaintiff having been nonsuited at the trial on July 11th, the "findings of fact and conclusions of law" filed on the 26th of July, are without precedent in point of practice.
    2. The court manifestly erred in nonsuiting the plaintiff, who was not bound to return to the defendants the moneys received of them in part satisfaction of the judgment, for the plaintiff is entitled to retain these moneys in any aspect of the case.
    Nor does it concern the defendants what disposition has been made of the Kenfield stock. If it had been returned to Kenfield it would not have benefited the defendants in anywise.
    Judgment reversed and cause remanded for a new trial. Remittitur forthwith.

    Gentlemen: We have had your matter under consideration and concluded to submit the following proposition, subject to your approval: If your people will organize a company, then grade and prepare the road for the iron with practical grades and curvatures on a gauge corresponding with the San Joaquin Valley Road, we will then furnish the iron, taking as payment therefor(sic) the first mortgage bonds on the road at their market value. When the road is completed and ready for the rolling stock, should you prefer not to equip and operate the same, a fair arrangement could be made by which we will operate the road, for a just and fair division of the earnings, until such time as you may deem it advisable to stock it and operate it yourselves.

    On motion of Mr. C Dorsey, it was ordered that a committee of eight be appointed to open books for subscriptions to secure the building of a railroad from Columbia to Modesto; that the subscribers are not to be called upon unless the whole amount of $200,000 be subscribed, and that none of the money even after it is subscribed be used unless it be sufficient, with the amount contributed from Stanislaus county, either to grad the road or to secure the completion of the same.

    On the morning of January 16th, on the Brown's Flat road, Tuolumne county, the stage was robbed and Wells, Fargo's box taken, an account of which has already appeared in the Record-Union. The case was worked up by detectives J B Hume and Ben K Thorn. The main points of the testimony at the examination are given by the Tuolumne Independent of the 2d instant. It is admitted on all sides that the acuteness of the officers, and the experience of detectives Hume and Thorn led to the prompt unearthing of the robbers and the subsequent confessions. The Independent says:
    D M Kenfield, agent for Wells, Fargo & Co., stated that he prepared the packages for shipment; there were two certain packages of silver half-dollars, containing $1,000 each; other packages containing $2,500 and upwards in United States gold coin, in $20 pieces. The silver was in canvas coin bags; the gold was in packages, and all put in a large treasure-bag. The silver was in $20 rolls, and ifve rolls to a package, and tied.
    On the morning referred to Mr. Monahan said that he put the money on board the stage and deposited it in the iron safe, and locked it with a heavy brass padlock.
    Mr. Shine said that he left Sonora on the 16th, about 3 o'clock and 20 minutes; drove on as usual above Brown's Flat; Caleb Dorsey, J H Condit, and J G Divoll were on board inside, and when at a certain point was stopped by two men - ...

  1243. San Francisco Bulletin, Page 2, 1 Sept 1879. THE SUPREME COURT
    It is unnecessary to waste any words upon the importance of securing an able, upright and conscientious Supreme Court. If any other department of the Government should fall into loose or corrupt practices, there is always some method of getting at it and compelling it to mend its ways. If nothing else, it can be ignominiously retired at the end of its term, which is comparatively short. But it is different with the tribunal of last resort. It it is short-sighted or prejudiced; if it is venal or corrupt; if it is partisan or biased, it will leave a mark on the jurisprudence of the State which cannot easily be effaced. The evil which it does may last for generations...The peculiarity of the last mentioned ticket (the Honorable Bilks) is that three of the nominees for the Associate Judgeships, though able men, were pronounced and active secessionists. Calhoun Benham was in the Confederate service. Mr. Burch (John) was an advocate of a Pacific Republic. Dorsey is a politician of the same stripe. The nominee for Chief Justice, Nathaniel Bennet, is notoriously unfit for the place. The other three nominees, CA Tuttle, J H McKune and Alex Campbell, are not lawyers in the broad sense.
    The Republican ticket is, in the main, excellent. If there is a necessity for any scratching, the intelligent citizen will know just how much of it is necessary. If so, some good names may be found on the combined Workingmen's and Democratic ticket. McKinstry, J D Thornton and S B McKee stand high in the judicial ranks. In the selection of any one or more of them for other names on the Republican ticket that may not be considered strong, there is not much chance that any great mistake will have been committed.

  1247. San Francisco Bulletin. THE OLD SECESSIONISTS AS NEW CONSTITUTION MEN; ...In a very large sense David S. Terry is the father of the party [New Constitution] which subsequently appeared on the scene and which is now know as the Honorable Bilk. Terry is a man of great ability, strong prejudices and deep convictions. In the early struggle in this State between free and slave society, he slew the champion of the popular party. When it was found that there was no chance to carry California out of the Union he went to Mississippi, and there held, we believe, an important command in the rebel army.

    The element of which this gentleman [David Terry] is a representative is large enough to give character to the whole HB [Honorable Bilk] movement. The sudden appearance of these fossils served for a time to whet the popular sense of humor, but there is a serious side to it. These men have seized upon every point where real power is located.

Glenn, a native of Virginia, and whose farm is a reproduction, so far as the different surroundings permit, of a Southern plantation on a large scale, is the candidate of the Honorable Bilks for Governor. David S Terry, though at first declining all preferment, has since stepped into the candidacy for the important office of Attorney-General, who has charge of the legal conscience not only of the Governor but of the State Government. Calhoun Benham, who held a position on the staff, we believe of Stonewall Jackson, is one of the nominees for the Supreme Bench. Another is John C Burch, who, as a member of Congress from this State in 1860 openly advocated the formation of a Pacific Republic. A third is Caleb Dorsey, who was also a pro-slavery Democrat, and is the same manner of man....

  1248. Sacramento Daily Union, P. 2, 2 Sept 1879, Vol 8, No 150. KILLED BY DEMOCRATIC INDORSEMENT; YREKA JOURNAL:
    Caleb Dorsey, of Tuolumne, regretted the feeling which had been made manifest. He differed with Gen. Howard. It was said Dr. Glenn would carry Democratic votes, but wouldn't the part lose as much among Republican voters? Dr. Glenn had refused the nomination unless the Democracy would indorse him. For him he wanted no party to indorse the ticket unless it takes it all, from top to bottom. (Applause) Looking at all things, and the availability of the men, he believed the indorsement of the head of the ticket alone by the Democracy would virtually destroy the NCP [New Constitution Party]. He therefore would support Mr. Webster. (Applause) The remarks above given were made by Mr. Dorsey in the H B [Honorable Bilk] State Convention. He seems to have had a prophetic view of the situation, for he declared then and there that destruction would follow the indorsement of the head of the ticket alone by the Democracy. Glenn was nominated. It was declared by him that he must have Democratic indorsement. He got it and it has killed him. He is politically dead, and on his tombstone might well be written, "Killed by Democratic indorsement and Chronicle treachery.".

He lighted up a blazing fire on the hearth, filled up an old stinker of a pipe and had a social smoke. The he proceeded to an adjoining room, which is tenanted as a bed-room by another limb of the law, who was absent that night. The tramp climbed into the elegant four-poster, which he defiled before morning; also, committing a like depredation upon another article of vertu in the room. In the morning he was arrested and sent up for fifteen days.

    ---- RAIN

    Sonora, January 10. -- Frank G. Gilkey, one of the parties arrested on suspicion of having killed William Bargel some time ago, was held by Justice Miller yesterday to appear in the Superior Court on a charge of murder. Tobe Richards is on examination to-day for the same offense. While James Burns, one of the witnesses, was being examined by Caleb Dorsey, Assistant District Attorney, hot words passed, which resulted in Dorsey's drawing a six-shooter, which was followed by Burns drawing his pistol. Parties in the Court-room got between them and prevented any further demonstrations.
    It rained this morning, but it is clear and cold to-night.

  1260. Grass Valley Union, Wednesday, April 1, 1885 - Obituary - https://docs.co.nevada.ca.us/dsweb/ImageStoreViewer/Document-413726. DEATH OF CALEB DORSEY; Caleb Dorsey, a leading lawyer, and a pioneer resident of Tuolumne county, died suddenly at his residence in Sonora on Saturday evening. Mr. Dorsey has always been prominent in public life, having held various positions of trust, and at the time of his death was a Regent of the State University and a Director of the Stockton Insane Asylum. He was well known throughout the state, particularly by members of the Democratic party, in the affairs of which he always took a prominent part.
  1261. Tuolumne Independent, 4 Apr 1885. Death of Caleb Dorsey - The sudden and unexpected death of our esteemed fellow-citizen, Caleb Dorsey, at 9:30 pm on last Saturday caused universal sorrow and sincere regret, and the sad news fell as a personal grief upon every heart in the community. The immediate cause of his death was a spasmodic contraction of the throat, of which he had had several previous attacks. The day before, he had overexerted himself in his argument in defense of a poor unfortunate on trial for murder, and on going home at noon he complained to us that his throat was sore, and that he felt hoarse and exhausted. On Saturday afternoon, and a few hours before his death, he was in the Independent office twice, and seemed cheerful and in better health than usual. Alas, how short is life! We never saw him after - that night our ever faithful friend, the man we had known and respected for over 30 years - had laid down the cares of this life and gone to receive the reward he had so richly earned in this vale of sorrow and of tears.
    Deceased was born in Howard County, Maryland, March 25th, 1825, receiving there his primary education. He entered Harvard College at the age of 18, from which he graduated in 1847. He then entered the law-school of that institution, from which he also graduated with distinctive honors. He received instruction from the celebrated jurists Greenleaf, Kent and Judge Story; was admitted to the bar and commenced the practice of his profession in Baltimore, Maryland. He came to this state via the isthmus, in October, 1850, settled in Shaws Flat where he engaged in mining, afterwards opening an office in Sonora and practicing his profession. He returned to his native state during the years 1855, 1856 and 1857 successively, his last trip being the occasion of his marriage to Miss Esther McNabb of Baltimore, Maryland. He returned with his bride to Sonora where they have since resided and reared their family which now consists of three daughters and one son.
    Mr. Dorsey was a prominent member of the Democratic party in the old days - was honored by his fellow-citizens in electing him to the office of District Attorney. In later years he was more independent in his action and refused to agree with every measure deemed expedient by the party management. In principle he was still a Democrat but refused to obey every crack of the political whip. In fact, he was in advance of parties in many points which are now considered essential to success in politics. He believed that what was right was better than what was politic and consequently dropped out of the inside workings of his party and followed the dictate of his own conscience rather than assent to the advocacy of measures only adopted, as he considered, as a means to success. Perhaps, not always right, but never afraid to express his honest convictions, however much they might tend to injure his political standing with his party. In this he was no hypocrite, for his opinions were never masked under the veil of obscurity, never obtrusive among political opponents yet never faltering, when questioned in a friendly manner, as to his views on means or measures. In the new constitutional campaign he was a candidate for Judge of the Supreme Court, and received a very flattering vote. A few months ago he was appointed by Governor Stoneman, a Director of the State Insane Asylum at Stockton and on the 10th ult. he attended a meeting of the Directors in that city. About three weeks ago he was again honored by the Governor, receiving an appointment as Regent of the State University, but did not qualify on account of ill health.
    In his profession Mr. Dorsey stood among the highest and was recognized as among the ablest lawyers in the State, having on several occasions conducted successfully, important suits in the Courts of our neighboring State and Territories. It was while thus engaged in Arizona that he contracted the sickness which ruined his health and finally resulted in his death.
    An old pioneer of Tuolumne, Mr Dorsey was ever alive to its best interests and advocated and assisted by every means in his power to advance and develop the resources of the county. His public enterprise in this respect is well known to all our citizens.
    In the community where he has lived 35 years, almost from boyhood - he was honored and esteemed for his many virtues, for he was faithful to his trusts, honest and sincere in his convictions, generous to a fault and a gentleman whose sterling qualities were open to the light of day. Not a professing christian as the term is understood in these days he was better - he practiced the virtues of Christian faith among his fellow men. The last professional act of his life - and which undoubtedly was the immediate cause of his death - was the defense of a poor Indian on trial for his life. Without fees, hope of reward for professional fame, he entered into the defense of the wretch with all the ardor of his nature. There is no question that by Mr. Dorsey's able efforts alone was the friendless wretch snatched from the scaffold.
    In his family relations he was the idol of a happy home, a loving husband and an affectionate father.

  1269. Sacramento Daily Union, 24 Nov 1856. PROSPERITY OF SONORA - The Sonora Herald of Tuesday, Nov 11th, draws the following encouraging picture of that mining town:
    Probably no town in the State has improved, in proportion to size, so rapidly as Sonora within the past eight months. The erection of stone and brick buildings took a start immediately after the fire of February last, when some eight or nine frame buildings on Washington street were consumed. Since then the enterprise of our citizens has never slackened - the mason's trowel and the carpenter's hammer have been constantly employed - until now Washington street presents as fine and durable an appearance as most of the streets of our principal cities. To any person who may have been absent from here during the period referred to, the change must appear indeed remarkable. It is the best evidence that could be afforded of the stability, prosperity and wealth of Sonora, showing that our own people have not only the confidence but the means to beautify the town and cast their fortunes here for life.
    At some other time we shall furnish a statement of the number of stone and brick buildings in Sonora. At present we will content ourselves by mentioning those lately finished and now under way. In a previous number we have spoken of Mr. Alexander's building. It is really as fine a two-story house as can be seen in the State, containing two stores in the first, and two large rooms in the second story. Mr. Merriam has lately erected a two-story brick at the north end of Washington street, which is now finished. Mr. Brodigan has erected a massive two-story building on his lot, near Sonora Creek Bridge. It is one of the largest houses in town, built of a species of slate rock which is extensively quarried in this vicinity. The carpenters are now engaged finishing it inside. Mr. Charles Rutherford and Caleb Dorsey, Esq., have had brick dwelling houses erected, which are almost finished. Dr. Kendall is having a brick building erected on Washington street, which he designs for an office. Last, but not least, we have to mention the beautiful two-story brick, with iron front, and which is designed for stores, now in course of erection by Mr. Joseph Armitage. It is in the center of the city, and will be, when finished, one of the handsomest and largest buildings in town. We understand that the second story is intended for a Masonic Hall.
  1270. The Saga of Old Tuolumne, pp 214, 215. Caleb dorsey, who reached Sonora in October, 1850, one of the county's legal lights, was a staunch supporter of Gwin's. At the time of Gwin's visit to Solomon, Mr. Dorsey was having a two-story red brick dwelling erected for his family home across the street from the United States Hotel. Together with sheriff Solomon they inspected it. The finishing touches had just been given to the newel post in the hallway. All Southerners, it perhaps reminded them of the homes they had so recently left. A kiln in Sonora had furnished the bricks for the house, and the bricklayers had laid them well. They paused for moment in the spacious parlor to gaze with admiration on the ceiling decorations which had been done by William Sell, the town's first plasterer of note. The house, they agreed, was spacious, first class in every detail. When Mr. Dorsey's house was finished, he used a portion of the downstairs for his law offices...
  1271. Golden Roots of the Mother Lode, p 10. Caleb Dorsey's wife, Esther Marie McNab, was born in Baltimore 31 July 1835. They were married on one of Dorsey's several trips back to that city. He brought her as a bride to the new brick home he had built in Sonora. The house and property were valued at $9,675 in the 1860 tax records.
    Date is estimated from the date of first child's birth.
  1272. Tuolumne Independent, 4 April 1885, p 1. ...He returned to his native State during the years 1855, 1856 and 1857, successively, his last trip being the occasion of his marriage to Miss Esther McNabb, of Baltimore, MD, which occurred March 16th, 1858. He returned with his bride to Sonora, where they have since resided and reared their family, which now consists of three daughters and one son. A Search of the Maryland State Archives was made for their marriage record; letter received 17 Dec 2009 states: A search was made fro the marriage record of Caleb Dorsey and Esther Marie McNab/McNabb, Baltimore County, March 16, 1858 but unfortunately nothing was found.

    Beyond where Stewart St goes into Elkin St and Elkin St into Washington St is the Rowan Hardin home, Judge Hardin's old family home. Several lots beyond was the Caleb Dorsey home. It must have been a beautiful large residence when Caleb Dorsey was alive. He was a very prominent lawyer in his time and his services were sought all over California. When I knew and remembered it, all that remained of the garden were the two oleander bushes by the front entrance. It was a large, square two-story red brick house with wooden porches on both stories around three sides (171 N. Washington St.). Then, the porches were falling down because the two Dorsey sisters had a hard time making ends meet. Mr. Dorsey, when he died, left a fairly substantial estate to his wife, who was a proud southerner used to the best servants, etc. Frequent trips to San Francisco and stays at the Palace Hotel soon exhausted the family finances. One sister, Elizabeth, was a deaconess at St. James' Episcopal Church. The other, Nita Dorsey, earned what she could by selling her beautiful handwork to the City of Paris. Many hours she spent doing this work so difficult on her eyes and health so that her demanding mother, now senile, could have the things she wanted. My family knew them well. My father was their doctor for many years. Each year they would bake us a beautiful fruit cake at Christmas time. Once, my mother sent me on an errand there. Although their porches were falling down, there in the parlor were their sterling heirloom; beautiful candelabra, a lovely tea set and many other pieces. I am sure they deprived themselves of many things to pass these on to some distant relative. A good example of southern pride.

  1294. Tuolumne Banner, 12 Sept 1921, Friday. MRS E. DORSEY PASSES AWAY
    Last Monday morning at 1 o'clock the angel of death entered the home of Mrs. Esther Marie Dorsey in this city and plucked her spirit from the withered body. She was aged 86 years, having been born in the city of Baltimore Maryland, on the 31st of July 1835.
    She was the widow of the late Col. Caleb Dorsey.(sic) The large brick house in north Sonora has been her home for 60 years and was the home to which her husband brought her from the old south as a bride in 1861. When young in spirit and in beauty she made that place the social center of the city of Sonora and the place of entertainment fro all persons of distinction who visited this county. Her bright mind and knowledge of the manners of the South easily placed her in the lead of the society of that day and she made that held many friends until advancing age and feeble health confined her spirit and restricted her activity.
    For may years she has not been seen upon our streets and the younger generation knew her not. But, to the older citizens, she was well known and highly respected.
    Her mind remained unusually bright until the last few months and she could not only tell of the many exciting events which took place in Tuolumne County in the early days but was equally interested in the doings of the present day.
    She leaves two daughters to mourn her departure, Miss Elizabeth Dorsey, a Deaconess of the Episcopal church, and Miss Anita Dorsey, both of this city.
    Following the custom of the south, where she was born and raised and received her first impressions of such matters, it was her request that no public notice be given but merely that her friends alone be present at her funeral. Undertaker C. H. Burden had charge of the arrangements and the funeral was conducted from the family home about 2:30 Wednesday afternoon. Interment was made in the family plot in the Odd Fellows cemetery. Bishop A R Graves read the service at both the house and the grave. The pall was carried by Hon. G W Nichols, G P Morgan, Rowin Hardin, O J Mouron, J B Doyle and Charles P Jones. A number of Native Daughters escorted the cortege to the final resting place.
    A number of relatives were present from Oakdale and other points.

  1301. Union Democrat, Tuolumne Co, CA, 2 Aug 1935. DEACONESS DORSEY JOINS THE FAMILY CIRCLE AGAIN
    Miss Elizabeth M Dorsey, 76, passed away in Sonora, the home of her birth, early last Friday morning. A week before she had submitted to an operation and despite her age and the seriousness of the operation, she rallied and for a few days it looked like she would be able to again take up the good work in the community to which she so generously gave her time and so nobly attended.
    Miss Dorsey was Deaconess of St. James Episcopal Church, an honor conferred on her 35 years ago and one to which she has been faithful at all times. Other activities in addition to the church, held much of her attention, she feeling ti her duty at all times to function in whatever was for the good and welfare of the people in the community, so when the World War was in progress and ever since she has acted as secretary of Sonora Chapter, American Red Cross, for years has affiliated herself with the Sonora branch of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. She was kind and considerate and through her efforts and alertness many needy persons received succor and many a dumb animal was spared the blow by an irate master.
    She was a good Christian woman and was sincere in all her undertakings and now that she is no more - the last of a pioneer family that was proud but reasonable - the name will ever stand as a monument in our midst - handed down by her father, the late Caleb Dorsey, a great attorney in his day and at one time District Attorney of Tuolumne County.
    The family consisted of the parents, four daughters and a son, devoted during their life time - what a joyful reunion.
    Under the direction of the Burden Company the funeral was held from St James Episcopal Church at 2:30 Monday afternoon where the Right Rev. Bishop Louis C Stanford conducted the services, assisted by the Very Rev A W Farlander of the same city and of the deceased were in attendance at the last sad rites. Interment was made in the IOOF Cemetery, this city.
    Cousins of the deceased surviving are as follow: Mrs. H P Badgley, San Francisco; E W Dorsey, Oakdale; E S Dorsey, Alberta, Canada; Mrs. Harry C Marsh, Mrs. Frank Boggs and Dr S W R Langdon, Stockton; besides relatives residing in Maryland.
  1302. Tuolumne Banner, 2 Aug 1935, p. 7, col. 4. ELIZABETH M. DORSEY
    Miss Elizabeth M. Dorsey died in this city Friday morning, July 26, after a long and confining illness. Born in Sonora in the year 1859, she lived to be one of the oldest residents, highly respected devoted to welfare work as applied by the Red Cross, the Episcopal Church, and county relief, and at all times deeply concerned with the political life of the nation.
    Her parents were the late Attorney and Mrs. Caleb Dorsey, pioneers of the year 1852. They left their native Maryland, accompanied with a few household slaves, whom they immediately freed, when the great gold rush was underway. He was a man of extraordinary ability, force and intelligence, and immediately became a leader in the life of Tuolumne County. He served as head of the Democratic Party for years; was elected district attorney and was the leading attorney of the county throughout the years of his residence.
    Miss Dorsey followed in the footsteps of her father in many ways; she was a staunch Democrat, ideally optimistic of the honesty of others, sympathetic to every plea for help, whether from a human or dumb source, and kept informed of all the national and state events, particularly in her younger years.
    The Dorsey home, the square red brick building just east of the Episcopal Church, was at one time the finest residence in the city, and was always the headquarters for every visitation to our city of persons of prominence. It formerly was surrounded on each side by lower and upper porches, with an upper roof, and presented a fine appearance with large yards on either side and in front.
    Miss Dorsey was the last of the family, which originally consisted of the parents and three daughters and one son. She was a great worker for the cause of her country during the World War (and we presume was equally active during the Spanish American War) and following that conflict was for years working in the interest of the ex-soldiers. She served as secretary of the Red Cross for years, as also she did for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, assuming the presidency upon the death of Mrs. Edna Winn.
    She was the first woman in California to be honored with the ordination of deaconess of the Episcopal Church, in 1900. Among her relationships she could trace back to Washington and down to Robert E Lee.
    Among the surviving and geographically near relatives are the following cousins, most of whom were her during her illness or at the time of her funeral: Hrs. H P Badgley, San Francisco; E W Dorsey, Oakdale; E S Dorsey, Alberta Canada; Mrs. Harry C Marsh, Mrs. Frank Boggs, Dr S W R Langdon, Stockton; John Dorsey Ewing, Sacramento.
    The funeral was conducted from the family home at 2:15 Monday. The body was carried to St. James Church where services were under direction of Rt. Rev L C Sanford, from Sacramento, assisted by the Very Rev A W Forlander, dean of St James Cathedral of Fresno, and the Rev. Will Cash, rector of St. Luke's Church of Merced.
    Interment was made in the family plot in Odd Fellows Cemetery.

    Miss Anita Ester Dorsey passed away at her home in Sonora at 10 o'clock last Monday morning. She had been ill for the past two months, and the close attention by physician and the kind gentle ministrations by a devoted sister but availed her of a more peaceful ending.
    Miss Dorsey was the daughter of the late Caleb and Mrs. Dorsey, pioneer residents of Sonora, where her father was a noted attorney during those hectic days when law and order required the services of such brilliant lawyers. She was born in Sonora in the house where she died and spent the 71 years of her christian life.
    Funeral services were held at St. James Episcopal Church Wednesday afternoon at two o'clock, Rev. Chester Hill officiating. Under the direction of the Burden Undertaking Co. the interment was made in the family plot in IOOF cemetery, this city.

    Caleb C Dorsey, son of the late C C Dorsey who was a prominent lawyer and participated in all the big litigations in the early history of the county, died at the home of his mother in this city Thursday morning. Deceased had been in ill health for two years past during which time he was confined to the house.
    Deceased was born in this city 48 years ago and almost his entire life was spent here. Mining was always attractive to him and he generally followed that calling, his latest operations being in the Tuttletown district, and where his efforts were crowned with some success. He was a companionable and entertaining man and his many friends throughout the county will learn with regret that he has gone. His mother and two sisters are bereft of an affectionate son and brother and in their sorrow they have the sympathy of the community.
    The funeral will occur at 3 o'clock this Saturday afternoon from the Episcopal church. Interment will be in the 1OOF cemetery.

  1329. Sonora Banner, 11 Aug 1916, p 1, col 2. C. C. DORSEY DIES IN THE HOME OF HIS BIRTH; At fifteen minutes to four o'clock Thursday morning the spirit of Caleb Chauncey Dorsey broke from the walls of mortality and took its flight into eternity. For many days, we might well say weeks, it had been his daily prayer to be released from the tightening chains that were slowly sapping his life and to take the well deserved rest that his torture wracked body had earned. Five years of illness, during which he was only able to do the lightest tasks, have been brought to a close and it is to the relatives only that sorrow can be extended; deceased himself prayed up to the last moment for the appearance of the angel. He was ready to meet his God and he did so with perfect confidence. Many years ago "Wooze" as he was always called, went to the assistance of his friends and aided in quenching a forest fire in the Jackass hill section. The night of his return he lay in a stupor. Days afterwards, when able again to be about the house, he stated that he considered his days to be numbered as he had breathed flames into his lungs, and from that day until the day of his death he gradually grew weaker.
    If liberality is a fault, then we can say that "Wooze" was in error throughout the days of his life. If loyalty to people and ideals should be discountenanced then "Wooze" was not in sympathy with his fellow citizens. But if liberality is a virtue, if loyalty is taught the oncoming generation, then "Wooze" Dorsey can be pointed to as a man who lived a life of devotion to his ideals.
    Nearly forty-nine years ago he was born in the home in north Sonora built by his father, Caleb Dorsey, many years before, who had come to this state at the close of the Civil War to rehabilitate his devastated fortunes and to begin a new life that had been at the apex of the legal profession in the state of Maryland. Four years of war and several years of tyranny will break the strongest heart but Caleb Dorsey made his name the best known in this part of California and well known throughout the west and to the leading spirits of the nation.
    A mother and two sisters, Miss Elizabeth and Miss Anita, are left of the immediate family, but a large number of relatives and friends mourning his departure.
    Mrs. Thomas Dorsey of Oakdale arrived at the home Thursday afternoon.
    The funeral services will be held in St. James Episcopal church at three o'clock Saturday afternoon, interment will be in the family plot in the IOOF Cemetery.
    Mr. Dorsey was a miner by occupation and in the capacity more of a prospector than a miner, he became familiar with every portion of Tuolumne and adjoining counties. In his traveling he became well acquainted and whatever he possessed was always at the disposal of his friends. He was well liked and has hundreds of friends and acquaintances who will regret to learn of his long illness and death.

    (according to Celeste Young Cary) when Comfort Worthington Dorsey's family moved west to Missouri she remained with her Grandmother in Ellicott City, MD to finish her education at Patabsco (actually Patapsco) Institute (about 1 year). This has been confirmed online with Howard County, MD Dept of Recreation and Parks, Patapsco Female Institute Historic Park (in book). "In our records we did find a Comfort W Dorsey from Spring-Hill, MD. She was a student at the Patapsco Female Institute 1842 - 1844.".
  1369. Daily National Intelligencer, P. 3. PATAPSCO FEMALE INSTITUTE, Near Baltimore, Md.;
    The Principal, Mrs. Lincoln Phelps, has had long experience in directing a literary institution, and is well known to the public from her former connexion in the Troy (NY) Seminary with her sister, Mrs. Emma Willard, as the author of Lincoln's Botany, and of a series of works on Chemistry, Natural Philosophy, &c., of sundry works on the subject of Education, &c.
    The Patapsco Female Institute is situated within five minutes' walk of the depot of the railroad in the vicinity of Ellicotts' Mills, Md., ten miles west of Baltimore, with which, as with Washington, there is a constant communication, both by railroads and turnpikes. The building for the accommodation of the School is of dressed granite, erected in a chaste styles of architecture, at an expense of $27,000. The present Principal, aided by the advice and assistance of her husband, the Hon. John Phelps, has expended about $5,000 in additions and improvements. The adjacent grounds, consisting of about twelve acres, belonging to the institution, are beautifully situated, and afford many advantages for health and recreation.
    The terms for the scholastic year, for board and English education, are $240; no extra charges being made but for ornamental branches, lectures, and foreign languages.
    A Board of five trustees (the Hon. Thomas B. Dorsey, President) have a general oversight of the condition and management of the institution. The Right Rev. Wm R. Whittingham is visiter. A resident Chaplain, the Rev. Wm. H Clarke, a graduate of Yale College, is Professor of Mental Philosophy and English Composition. Besides the experienced and excellent Vice Principal, Miss Browne, there are associated in the care, discipline, and instruction of the pupils nine ladies resident in the family. Mons. Louis F. Levis, a graduate of the University of France, (licentiate de droit,) Professor of Modern Languages, resides in the institution, and devotes his time wholly to its interests. There are in regular attendance two distinguished German Professors of the Piano; two English Professors, one of Vocal Music and the guitar, and one of the Harp and Organ; and a Professor of Drawing and Painting, in water colors and oil; Professor Aiken of the University of Maryland, is Lecturer on the Physical Sciences. Mr. Henry C. Cornwell is Secretary and Business Agent.
    An organization of officers and teachers like the above, with the accommodations provided, entitle the Patapsco Institute tot eh rank of a College or University for the perfecting of female education in useful and ornamental branches. It is vested, by an act of incorporation, with the power of granting diplomas to those who pass through a prescribed course of study...
    Extract from a report of the Principal, October 1847.
    "Patrons of various Christian denominations have continued to give the institution their support and friendship; and as a due return, the principles of all are respected. Controversy among us is discountenanced. We endeavor to train up our pupils as Christians, relying much on the influence of religious habits and example.
    "A Northern school in all its essential features and characteristics, but divested of all that might be offensive to Southern feelings, is planted in a Southern climate."
    This Institution is at all times open for the reception of pupils. Those who wish to do so, remain during vacations.
    Applications may be made to Mrs. Lincoln Phelps, Ellicott Mills Post Office, Maryland.
    NB The services of well qualified teachers for schools and families may usually be obtained by applying to the Patapsco Institute, in which is a Normal Department, for the training and improvement of teachers.
  1370. Montgomery County Standard, 9 Nov 1894. Ralls Co MO - Yesterday morning at her home in Hannibal, Mrs. Comfort Worthington Porter, wife of Judge Gilchrist Porter, age 69y 5m 3d. Miss Comfort Worthington Dorsey was born in Howard co MD, and lived to womanhood there. Her father was Col. Edward W. Dorsey, who migrate to Pike co, MO in 1838. In Pike co Judge Porter, then circuit attorney for that circuit, met, wooed and won her. They marr. at home of her father, Feb. 25, 1844, and went to housekeeping at Bowling Green. In 1853 they moved to Hannibal and have lived there since, with the exception of the 14y that Judge Porter was on the circuit bench during which time they resided at Clarksville. (Hannibal Journal).
  1371. Unknown Newspaper - Hannibal, MO. Long obituary from unknown source, probably the Hannibal, MO local paper; found in the notes of Abby Hammond Roberts:

    Death of Mrs. Gilchrist Porter, August 9, 1892
    At 9 o'clock yesterday morning, at her home on South Sixth street, occurred the death of Mrs. Comfort Worthington Porter, wife of Judge Gilchrist Porter, at the age of 69 years 5 months and three days, and when the news went out in this city words of regret were expressed on every hand.
    Miss Comfort Worthington Dorsey was born in Howard county, Maryland and after having grown to womanhood, with the advantages of a good education in native state, she removed to Missouri with the family of her father, Col. Edward W. Dorsey, who settled in Pike county. This was in the year 1838, and it was in Pike county that Judge Porter, who was then circuit attorney for that circuit met, wooed and won her. They were married at the home of the bride's father on the 25th day of February, 1840, and went to housekeeping at Bowling Green. In 1853 they removed to Hannibal and have resided here continuously since, with the exception of the fourteen years that Judge Porter was on the circuit bench, during which time they resided in Clarksville. When Judge Porter retired from that office they moved back to Hannibal, in 1881.
    To Judge Porter and his good wife twelve children were born, seven of whom are now living, as follows: Ed. D. and W. C. Porter, of Joplin; J. D. Porter, of Lower California, and Charles U. Porter, also of California; Mrs. A. R. Levering, of this city, Mrs. W. H. Smith of Golden Gate, California, and Miss Annie Porter, of Hannibal. Ed. D. and W. C. were at the bed of their mother when dissolution took place, and Mr. R. H. Roberts, who married one of Judge Porter's daughters (now dead) will arrive today. Owing to the great distance that separates the children in California from the mourning household in Hannibal it will be impossible for them to attend the funeral.
    To say that the death of this good woman has cast a gloom over the entire city is to speak truthfully. Her's was a character of great nobility and of untiring devotion to everything that was good and true. She was loved for her true worth and during the long and successful political career of the husband she now leaves heartbroken, she was a solace in the hour of trial, a devoted wife and a safe adviser. It is he, in his declining years, who will miss her more than all else - he who will realize that the dearest tie that bound him to earth has been broken. While his children are left to comfort him, yet the rude severance of the a married life of so many happy years is bound to leave a sore heart and a sad mein(sic) even unto the time when he too shall be called upon to answer the summon to go hence. While friends now say to him, "I sympathize with you," and while these kindly expressions have a tendency to sooth(sic) the heart that bleeds, yet remains the knowledge that death has come and his wife is no more. How hollow and idle are words of sympathy under such conditions, and yet how cold the world would be but for their presence.
    Mrs. Porter was an active, earnest member of the Episcopal church, having become a communicant with that church 40 years ago. Since she first enlisted in the work of Christ her many good deeds have made her Christian career an especially bright one and they will live long after she has gone to make the world better and the hope of eternal life of those left behind more pronounced and cheering.
    The funeral services will be conducted this afternoon by Rev. John Davis, rector of Trinity church, at the family residence, following which the interment will take place at Riverside Cemetery, Hannibal, Mo.
    May her soul rest in peace.

    Judge Gilchrist Porter, who died at Hannibal on November 1, at the age of 77 years, was well known in St. Louis, where his death is sincerely regretted.
    Judge Porter was born in Culpepper County, Virginia, but removed to Missouri when a young man, taking up his residence at Bowling Green, Pike County. When only 24 years old he was elected Circuit Attorney for the Third Judicial Circuit, which office he held for six years, resigining it to become a candidate for the Legislature on the Whig ticket. He served acceptably in the Legislature, and in 1850 was elected to Congress from what was then the Second District. Two years later he was re-elected.
    Judge Porter occupied a position on the Circuit bench for more than 17 years, being first appointed by Governor Gamble to fill a vacancy and afterwards elected by the people. In private and public life Judge Porter was noted for the able and faithful manner in which he discharged every duty imposed upon him. He enjoyed the entire confidence of the people among whom he lived, and died deeply regretted.

  1456. Correspondence, Letter in hanging file. 5 April 1893, from his sister Mary Eleanor Porter Levering, to John Dorsey Porter, Alamo, Lower California Mexico (via San Diego):
    My Dear Brother!
    I was glad to receive your letter, which came day before yesterday - though very sorry your prospects are no brighter . I have wondered, for some time, how you could afford to spend so many of the best years of your life, on so slight a prospect, as you said you had, to collect a few debts. Of course, I know nothing of the circumstances & yuo do not tell me, in your letter, what it is you need. Whilst I have every thing I could think of needing, you know, I have no separate estate, no income of my very own, but I happen just at this time, to have fifty dollars, & Righter insists upon giving one fifty more, which I am so glad to have for you. That will be enough to pay your way up into California & give you a little, till you have time to find work, will it not? & was that what you wanted? I am glad you feel that your rxperience down there, will help you, in your future life. Forget all the discouragement of your failure there, & start anew, determined to succeed. Keep near to the dear Savior, & put yourself under the influence of good Christian people & when temptation comes, He will surely strengthen you, if you determine to help yourself. Dear Dorse, I have always had a more tender love for you, than for any of my Brothers, because, I feel sure you have the making of a noble, true man committed to your keeping & if you fail to work out a grand manhood, you will be frustrating your Maker's plan for you. You know how little Pa & Nan have to look for in the other boys - Let them see you can not only honor yourself, but be a son & brother they can look up to & honor. When we talked of having a monument put up to our Mother's memory, I thought, each of us, her children is a monument to her memory & how doubly she will rejoice if we show her name worthy of honor, in her children. The only condition I attach to the little gift I send you is, that not one penny of it shall be spent in a way that would give her, that would give me pain. I hope you will get something to do quickly. I know you can succeed, & I will pray that you may. I feel sure Will Smith will help you find work. He spoke of you in such a brotherly way. Write as soon as you are out of Mexico, & if you have decided to go, why not at once? Nan & Dot are still in St. Louis. Dr Green encourages Nan about Dot's eyes. Pa is in Joplin. He says he is ten per cent better than when he lift home, but Pa is a very old man & very childish. Port is with us. I am not well this Spring - have been confined to my bed for several days. We are having Spring at last. 'Tis uncomfortably hot. There is a great deal of seckness here. I have thought so much of Gillie Dorse, since I began to write to you & am so thankful he escapted the troubles of this world & is saafe at home to wellcome us, when we reach there. But life is all before you, yet & I count upon your keeping your promise to make us all proud of you I can write no more now. Lovingly Sister.
  1457. Correspondence, Apr 5, 1893. Letter to "My Dear Brother" signed "Lovingly Sister" admonishing him to come home and sending him money. Does not disclose the purpose of his trip to Mexico. He must have gone down with brother Edward Porter - and they left from Joplin. He shows up in Joplin after the time of this letter in the 1910 census.Clearly he received it, or it wouldn't have found its way into Abby Hammond Roberts' possession. Note - at the end of his life he lived with Abby and Porter Roberts in Stockton.

Even as he was being assigned in 1863 to the position of Provost Marshal General - a military command that encompassed Missouri, Arkansas, Indian Territory, Kansas, and southern Iowa - he maintained this mind-set and was reported to have gone so far as to assert that "every damned Abolitionist in the country should be hung.".

BROADHEAD; IMPRESSIVE PUBLIC SERVICES AT CHRIST CHURCH CATHEDRAL LARGELY ATTENDED; ALL CLASSES REPRESENTED; EULOGIZED BY MEMBERS OF BAR ASSOCIATION AND MERCHANTS' EXCHANGE; BURIED IN BELLEFONTAINE.
    Like a message from another world, dazzling rays of sunshine fell through an open window into Christ Church Cathedral sanctuary yesterday, where reposed all that was mortal of the late Colonel James O. Broadhead. The inspiring omen gave cheer to mourning friends and relatives in attendance at the public funeral services and had a visible effect on the members of the Episcopalian clergy who were performing last rites over the honored remains. From the Broadhead homestead at 3333 Lafayette avenue to the cathedral the body was taken at 2 o'clock. There had been a large assemblage of friends at the house, but a far larger crowd was found in waiting at the church. Members of the St. Louis Bar association to the number of a hundred or more attended the services in a body. There were dapper young attorneys, gray-haired lawyers, judges from the high and lower courts, men of prominence and standing in banking, business and professional circles; leaders in society and poor men, men whom Colonel Broadhead had befriended. It has been some time since such a tribute has been paid to the memory of a deceased St. Louisan. Here and there sprinkled throughout the throng were members of the Loyal Legion, who reverenced Colonel Broadhead for the part he had taken in the ante-civil war controversies in Missouri. He was a Union man of the sternest type....Dean Carroll M. Davis offered the closing prayers and pronounced the benediction. Relatives, near friends of the deceased, and the pall bearers then entered carriages and were driven with the remains to Bellefontaine Cemetery, where Dean Davis read the committal service at the grave...

  1504. Civil War St. Louis. His activities that followed, important though they might have been in the scheme of events, were almost anti-climactic compared to what had preceded them. Broadhead spent 1862 serving on the military staff of Provisional Governor Gamble as Judge Advocate General, at the rank of colonel. He also continued in the employ of Edward Bares where he received a promotion from Assistant US Attorney to US Attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri, where he served from November 1861 through August 1862.
    The following year he was commissioned Lieutenant colonel of the Third Missouri State Militia Cavalry Regiment, a Pike County unit. He was then detached from the regiment and assigned to the post of Provost Marshal General for the Department of the Missouri from June 1863 through January 1864. In this position he ironically wielded far more power than his commanding officer in the Third MSM ( who happened to be Edward Bates' cousin and law partner). While his wife's brothers - John and Caleb Dorsey of Pike County - and their Confederate activities occasionally bedeviled him in his position as PMG, his Conservative Unionist policies offered relative moderation towards the non-combatant slaveholding and Southern-oriented citizenry of the state, as well as extreme aggravation to his Radical Unionist political opponents that desired sterner action on his part.

    STOCKTON, Cal., May 25. -- Consequent upon the fact that Cashier Kahn of the Oakdale bank shot himself yesterday, the directors of the institution, or which Thomas B Dorsey is president, met and suspended business indefinitely. The state bank commissioners have been sent for. The condition of the cashier is precarious. It is stated here by bankers that the Oakdale bank has been in bad standing for some time. The institution lost about $12,0000 in the Eppinger grain failure and Mr. Kahn sustained a heavy loss in a barley deal not so very long ago. Kahn was formerly a member of the grain firm of Haslacher & Kahn. These facts have occasioned a persistent rumor that Kahn, because of the liabilities and ill health, attempted self-destruction in a fit of despondency.
    On the other hand, friends and relatives declare that the shooting was purely accidental. In fact, shortly after it occurred Mr. Kahn told his wife in a moment of consciousness, that he had been examining the weapon, which had been out of order, and that it was accidentally discharged.

    Kind and most welcome letter was received this morning and I am perfectly delighted at the idea of having a lady correspondent, though I cannot imagine what I should have done, had you expected me to write first, your kindness in relieving me from that to me, very embarrassing position, I assure you is fully appreciated.  I am a very diffident little fellow and my absence from ladies society, for some months past has rather tended to increase than diminish the feelings.  Judging from your letter, I like you very much, and feel confident we shall be good friends,that is, if I am so fortunate as to make a favorable impression.
      You say you wanted a dirty, ragged Rebel; I am so fortunate (or rather unfortunate)as to be well clothed a present, but the time may come, when I will suit.  I am truly sorry that you and our kind friend, have been compelled to separate, and hope it may be, but for a short time, - I have (and am now) experienced what it is to be separated from those we love.  The dull monotony of Prison life, was somewhat cheered last week by the arrival of a large Dixie mail, our friends South, all well, no prospect of an Exchange soon.
    “Cousin Ambrose” Adjt Anderson and myself send kindest regards.  Hoping to hear from you very soon

    My Esteemed Cousin Loudie:
                Your very pleasant and kind favor from “Forest Level” came to hand a day since. Has been a little longer than is usual on the way.  I was the more favored in your cheering letter and its kind offers from the fact that it is not impracticable.  You may have observed that in recently published prison regulations it is permitted that we receive no favors per express, save from our relatives.  I must say, however, that were this not the case, I would much prefer accepting such favors from many business acquaintances in St. Louis, than to trouble my dear friends at my beloved old :Forest Level: home. You doubtless recollect my inveterate prejudices against “cousining” and my relatives in general.  Your messages to Cousin Caleb, per flag of truce, are already en route.  I trust they may reach him.  If so, I will hear from him in about six weeks.  Although, I do not know but that you may see him within that period.  Uncle Sterling I see is about to attempt you at visit.  May the kind hearted old gentlemen have a pleasant journey, and take cousin Caleb home with him.  The winter will be a severe one here.  You speak of my wants.  The most I will need will be a pair of pants,pair of shoes, and a coat of some description. Cousin Caleb’s size would just about fit me.  We are permitted to receive these only of course grey material.  Two pairs socks and a pocket Handkchf would help my needs greatly.  We are not permitted to buy them here.  Shoes “Size 8.”  I will not need them till sometime next month.  Very truly Your Cousin
                                                                Geo B Clarke
    I will write to you for them when I shall need these articles.  Meantime, please let me hear from you, again.

    Mrs. Lou Eleanor Ewing Passes Away Following Two Weeks' Illness

    Mrs. Lou Eleanor Dorsey Ewing, esteemed Stockton woman of many years' residence, founder and first president of Sterling Price chapter, Daughters of the Confederacy, and long an active worker in St. John's Episcopal Church, died yesterday afternoon at the family home, 1125 N. El Dorado street. Her passing came after an illness of over two weeks' duration, although she had been in poor health for a longer period. She lacked two months of being 80 years of age.
    Mrs. Ewing, widow of Philip C. Barbour Ewing, a pioneer resident of a San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties, who died many years ago, was the mother of Miss Edwa W. D. Ewing and J. Dorsey Ewing of Stockton and Mrs. Harry Marsh of San Francisco, formerly Miss Barbour Ewing. There is a grandson, Dorsey Ewing Marsh of San Francisco. A Sister, Miss Anna B. Dorsey, who has made her home at the Ewing residence, survives.
    Mrs. Ewing was born in Missouri of parents who had recently moved there from their home in Maryland. Her girlhood was spent in her natal state and she was there during the trying period of the Civil war. Her parents being southerners, their sympathy was naturally with the Confederacy and Miss Dorsey was active in the war relief work which is always the lot of women to perform.
    A number of years ago in Stockton Mrs. Ewing interested a group of Southern women in the formation of a chapter of the Daughters of the Confederacy. She was chosen the first president when Sterling Price chapter was organized, and continued in that office for seven years or as long as her health permitted. Her daughter, Miss Ewing, is president at the present time. Mrs. Ewing was present at the chapter a month ago, but her illness prevented her attendance at the meeting earlier this week.
    All during her long residence in Stockton, Mrs. Ewing has been actively identified with the Episcopal church. She was treasurer of the Sunday school and a teacher there for many years. In times past the Christmas tree, with its decorations and gifts, was one of the things in which she took a special interest.
    Mrs. Ewing was a fine type of southern gentlewoman with a wholesome personality and quiet charm which won her many friends. Her untiring efforts in church, charity and other work to which she devoted herself, made her many more admirers.
    Of distinguished lineage, she had many prominent family connections in Maryland, Virginia and Kentucky, as well as in this state. She was a great-aunt of Mrs. J. D. Young of Stockton and Dr. Samuel Langdon, formerly of this city, but more recently of Livingston, Merced County.

    Mrs. Lou Eleanor Ewing Passes Away Following Two Weeks' Illness

    Mrs. Lou Eleanor Dorsey Ewing, esteemed Stockton woman of many years' residence, founder and first president of Sterling Price chapter, Daughters of the Confederacy, and long an active worker in St. John's Episcopal Church, died yesterday afternoon at the family home, 1125 N. El Dorado street. Her passing came after an illness of over two weeks' duration, although she had been in poor health for a longer period. She lacked two months of being 80 years of age.
    Mrs. Ewing, widow of Philip C. Barbour Ewing, a pioneer resident of a San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties, who died many years ago, was the mother of Miss Edwa W. D. Ewing and J. Dorsey Ewing of Stockton and Mrs. Harry Marsh of San Francisco, formerly Miss Barbour Ewing. There is a grandson, Dorsey Ewing Marsh of San Francisco. A Sister, Miss Anna B. Dorsey, who has made her home at the Ewing residence, survives.
    Mrs. Ewing was born in Missouri of parents who had recently moved there from their home in Maryland. Her girlhood was spent in her natal state and she was there during the trying period of the Civil war. Her parents being southerners, their sympathy was naturally with the Confederacy and Miss Dorsey was active in the war relief work which is always the lot of women to perform.
    A number of years ago in Stockton Mrs. Ewing interested a group of Southern women in the formation of a chapter of the Daughters of the Confederacy. She was chosen the first president when Sterling Price chapter was organized, and continued in that office for seven years or as long as her health permitted. Her daughter, Miss Ewing, is president at the present time. Mrs. Ewing was present at the chapter a month ago, but her illness prevented her attendance at the meeting earlier this week.
    All during her long residence in Stockton, Mrs. Ewing has been actively identified with the Episcopal church. She was treasurer of the Sunday school and a teacher there for many years. In times past the Christmas tree, with its decorations and gifts, was one of the things in which she took a special interest.
    Mrs. Ewing was a fine type of southern gentlewoman with a wholesome personality and quiet charm which won her many friends. Her untiring efforts in church, charity and other work to which she devoted herself, made her many more admirers.
    Of distinguished lineage, she had many prominent family connections in Maryland, Virginia and Kentucky, as well as in this state. She was a great-aunt of Mrs. J. D. Young of Stockton and Dr. Samuel Langdon, formerly of this city, but more recently of Livingston, Merced County.

  1612. Stockton Record Newspaper, 10 Dec 1923, p 13, col 1. LAST RITES FOR MRS. EWING HELD THIS AFTERNOON;
    Quantities of beautiful flowers and floral pieces were banked about the casket of the late Mrs. Lou Eleanor Dorsey Ewing for whom services were conducted this afternoon. The funeral rites were held at St. John's Episcopal church commencing at 2 o'clock, Rev. Hugh R. Montgomery officiating.
    There was a large attendance of friends and members of the parish to which she had devoted so many hours during her life time. Interment was held privately in Rural cemetery.
    At the annual church dinner Friday evening, Bishop Louis C. Banford expressed his sorrow at her passing and paid a tribute to her long years of service to the church. He recalled her early work in the parish, not only at the time he took chare of the diocese of the San Joaquin but also when he was a young cleric in the diocese of California, many years before.
    The church members at the dinner stood in silence for thirty seconds out of respect to Mrs. Ewing's memory. A committee composed of C M Jackson, F N Vail and Mrs. C R Harry was named to send resolutions expressing the sympathy of the parish to the Ewing family.

  1675. Sacramento Daily Union, 28 Feb 1872, Vol 42, No 4723. A PROPER SPIRIT. - The Fresno Expositior of February 21st has the following:
    We are informed that Miller & Lux have sent up a number of men to the Alabama Settlement who are to work under the instructions of the farmers in that locality, but at the expense of the firm mentioned, in herding the stock off the growing crops. These men, in conjunction with the farmers, will enable the farmers to keep the loose stock off their premises without the aid of fences. This is certainly a very commendable spirit, and one which we are particularly pleased to notice, as it comes from the most prominent stock-raisers in the country. A general adoption of this course on the part of the stock-men would have a tendency to put a stop to the clamor for a no fence law, and would restore the relations of the agricultural and stock interests to an amicable status, and would stop the lawless shooting and maiming of stock. We learn also that Samuel Langdon, agent for Peres & Tuber of the Palo Alto Ranch has sent men to the settlement to assist in keeping off the stock. The arrangement has been made by Miller & Lux to furnish two men to Peres & Co's one. We only wish that other of our stock-raisers would pursue this same fair and proper course. Because the law protects a man it is not reason that he should override his neighbor. I question that this applies to this Samuel Langdon - but the name is so unique to the family - and the association with the Dorsey family is so clear, I don't want to lose this.

  1760. Missouri Masonic Grand Lodge, Email from Grand Masonic Lodge, Missouri. "When Richard Morris Roberts affiliated with FellowshipLodge #345, this meant that he was already a member some where, so thanks for the information about Clarksville, Missouri. I found that he was listed as a member of Clarksville Lodge #17, when it was chartered on October 8, 1830. I am sorry it did not give his degree dates but on records as old as this one is, no one had dates reported. So he left Clarksville Lodge #17 and joined with Fellowship Lodge #345. So he died as a Mason in good standing."

    Richard wasn't born in 1830 - so I'm assuming that this was a typo and have shifted it to 1860 - will leave it there until I can correct it with an accurate date.

  1771. Unidentified Newspaper, probably the Joplin Daily Herald. THE HAND OF DEATH; R. M. Roberts Falls Dead on the Street a Victim of Apoplexy of the Heart:
    Richard M. Roberts, ex-sheriff of Jasper county and probably the best known man in the county, left his home on the corner of Virginia avenue and Second street shortly before 7 o'clock this morning apparently in his usual state of health, but in less than fifteen minutes later he was carried back into the house unconscious and breathing his last.
    He had taken a bundle of his clothes down to the laundry on Second street, between Main and Joplin and then started back to Main street to go down to Marquis' for his breakfast. He had crossed Second street and was just in the act of stepping up on the cub stone at the corner of Main and Second, west side, when he fell back onto Second street. Some men on the street who saw him fall rushed to his assistance, but he was unconscious and apparently dying. Dr. Wolf, whose office is across the street, was summoned and at the suggestion of Col. Pierce, who happened to be at the scene, the men present picked up the prostrate man and carried him to his home and laid him tenderly on the bed and the doctor proceeded to examine him, but found without difficulty that he was beyond human aid and that he had fall a victim to apoplexy of the heart. He continued to breathe about ten minutes after the fatal stroke, but did not regain consciousness.
    The news of the sudden death as it spread along Main street caused everybody to stop and question, and looks of distress were plainly visible on the features of all, for everybody knew :Dick" Roberts and held him in high esteem.
    Mr. Roberts was about fifty six years old and had been a resident of Joplin since the fall of 1872 removing to this place from Hannibal, Mo. [interleaved - St. Louis] where he had married a most estimable young lady, Miss Julia Porter, daughter of Judge G. Porter. Shortly after his arrival here he and his brother-in-law, E. D. Porter, now president of the Rex Mining Co., engaged in the grocery business at the corner of Main and First streets. In 1880 he was elected sheriff of Jasper county, and he then retired from the mechatile(sic) business and gave his entire attention to his official duties which he did so creditably that he was re-elected two years later. After serving four years a sheriff he retired from office and engaged in business as a merchandise broker, which he continued in up to the time of his death.
    Just previous to his election to the office of sheriff he served two years as mayor of Joplin, having been nominated at a mass convention which was presided over by W. M. Carter and at the election he received a very large vote.
    In the meantime the saddest blow of his life befell him. His wife, whom he almost idolized, was taken from him by death. This occurred about twelve years ago. She left him three bright and promising children who have been a great comfort to him since, but he has seen them only occasionally, as after their mother's death realizing that it would be better for them, he sent the children to live with their grand parents at Hanibal(sic) and they have made that their home ever since. His children were Nellie, who is now Mrs. Dr. Young and lives at Stockton, Cal.; Miss Dot, aged sixteen, and master Porter, aged thirteen.
    Mr. Roberts has always, since the death of his wife, cherished her memory with the greatest affection, although he never spoke of her to his friends. During all these years he has kept the house in which she and he lived so happily, as nearly as possible as it was when she left it. He and the house and the furniture have grown old together and now he has gone to join her in the better world, and his body will be taken to Hanibal(sic) and laid to rest by the side of her whom he loved so dearly.
    Coroner Squire decided that it was not necessary to hold an inquest but very likely an autopsy will be held this evening and the body will be taken on the Memphis or Missouri Pacific night train to Kansas City and from there to Hanibal(sic).
    Mr. E. D. Porter, Mr. Roberts' brother-in-law and life long friend, was down on the Cowskin river fishing when the death occurred, but a telegram was sent him by special messenger from Noel this morning and he is expected to arrive on the evening Splitlog train.
    Deceased has a brother, John Roberts, living at Clarksville, Mo., also one in St. Louis, and a sister, Mrs. Downing, in Kansas City. The have all been notified and will probably be present at the funeral.
    Mr. Roberts was in comfortable circustances(sic) financially, owning considerable land in the county, some of which is lately proving to be valuable mining land. There is not a man in the county of Jasper who had so extensive a personal acquaintance as he, no matter what part of the county he was in nearly every man he met greeted him pleasantly and called him by name, and everybody had a good word to say of him.
    A.F. and A.M.: Fellowship Lodge No. 345, AF and AM, will meet its asylum at 7:30 to-night for the purpose of escorting the remains of Brother R. M> Roberts to the train. Members of Joplin Lodge No. 335 is cordially invited to meet with us. P.L. Crossman WM

    Resolutions.: The Old Settler associations of Jasper county at a recent meeting adopted appropriate resolutions on the death of R M Roberts who died suddenly at Joplin and was laid to rest in Riverside cemetery. The resolutions are as follows:
    Resolved, 1st. That in the death of R. M. Roberts our city has lost a most estimable and worthy citizen, society one of it brightest lights, the poor a warm friend who gladly extended to them a helping hand and words of sympathy in their need and distress.
    2. That this organization deeply deplores the sudden death of our late associate and friend and that to his children and relatives we extend our deepest sympathy in this, their sad hour of affliction.
    3. That his noble deeds of love his words of kindness spoken his virtues and true nobleness of manhood will ever remain green and fresh in our memories; and while he sleeps the sleep that knows no wakening may we cherish the fond hope that we may meet again and draw consolation to our souls in the thought that the world is better for his having lived.

This suggests that I may be completely wrong, the Dorsey was the plaintiff, not the defendant.

  2040. Hannibal Courier-Post. Editorial at the time of his death:
    Frank T Hodgdon
    The measure of a man's stature in a community is measured generally by the contributions of service which he has made in its progress and well being. When this service is multiplied by a tenure of more than a half century of active interest, its measure grows.
    That is the sort of citizen Frank T Hodgdon was in a period running a span of well beyond fifty years in Hannibal.
    A resident since 1887 when he came here at the age of 14 years, he held a record outstanding both in length of time and magnitude of service, in his work as a citizen. Both in the business with which he was identified for so long and in a tremendous number of civic undertakings he was an untiring worker and leader.
    Mr. Hodgdon's business was banking. Entering this calling in the Farmers and Merchants bank when a young man just out of college, he worked through various stages to become cashier for many years and then president of the institution.
    Nor was his interest in the banking business merely confined to his job. He believed in the advantages of association of those engaged in a business and the helpfulness of "talking shop" with other bankers. More than a third of a century ago, he was recognized by the state's banking fraternity for his leadership and elected to office in the Missouri Bankers Association. In 1918 he became its president. Recognition of his interest was not only in his state. He served a term on the executive committee of the American Bankers association.
    It was not merely in his business that Mr. Hodgdon devoted his talent and his energy. During his long career one has only to list the civic and community undertakings of Hannibal to name the activities in which he had a prominent part.
    Chamber of Commerce movements, fraternal organizations work of the schools, the churches, the YMCA, Boy Scouts - one could count them by the score - were activities in which he made an important contribution of effort.
    Perhaps the crowning event of his "extrabusiness" activity was in the later years of his life, when as chairman of the Missouri State Cancer Hospital commission, appointed by the then governor, Lloyd C Stark, Mr. Hodgdon was in charge of the planning and building of the outstanding state-sponsored hospital for cancer treatment and research in the country. Ellis Fischell hospital today is testimonial of his energy and determination to render an outstanding service when called upon to do a job.
