"DAVIS--ALBERT DAVIS PASSES--Hemorrhage of the Lungs Was Immediate Cause of Death--WOODLAND, Oct. 7 - Albert DAVIS was found dead Sunday morning, and his physician states that hemorrhage of the lungs was the immediate cause. He had been under treatment for cardiac asthma for a number of years and had been frequently warned that he must take every possible precaution against hemorrhages. Two or three days previous he had a mild attack and his friends advised him to remain in bed until he had fully recovered. Saturday night he complained of feeling rather worse than usual and he retired early. At midnight some friends called to see him and they saw no indication of hemorrhage. About 7 o'clock Sunday morning he was found dead. He probably died between 4 and 5 o'clock. Will DAVIS, brother of the deceased, is in San Francisco. Efforts have been made to locate him but so far without avail. The funeral will probably be held on Wednesday and it will be held under the auspices of the Eagles. Deceased was also a member of the Neutawanha lodge, No. 245, I.O.O.F., of Fulton, New York. Owing to the absence of the brother we have been unable to procure any data from which to write a sketch of the life of the deceased. It is a matter of general knowledge, however, that he had lived in Dunnigan, Blacks and Woodland for the last fourteen or fifteen years. He was well liked by all who knew him."

"DAVIS--Yesterday morning John W. DAVIS, formerly a Sergeant in Company G, 14th Regiment of Infantry, U.S.A., was found dead in his room at the Philadelphia House, on Bush street. A gland was sufficient to show that he had committed suicide by cutting the arteries of his right arm with a razor that was found on a table in the room. Near the razor was a letter addressed: "'Call' office, Frisco," and it read as follows: "The 'Daily Call:' Publish this letter for me. I am going to fill a suicide's grave, and may God forgive me. I have left $1,000 in the bank at Portland for the Orphan's Home. May the children who receive the benefit of it be men for the good of society. John W. DAVIS."

"de FREMERY--DIED WHILE TRAVELING--James de FREMERY, the Well-Known Capitalist, Passed Away on a Train in Colorado. James de FREMERY, who, according to the telegraphic dispatches, died in Colorado while en route to this city, was the founder of the well-known firm of GILDEMEESTER, de FREMERY & Co. of this city which is still in existence under the firm name of James de FREMERY & Co. The deceased was president of the Chamber of Commerce for two terms and was active in the management of the Savings and Loan Society, the Giant Powder Company, The American Sugar Refining Company, several Oakland Street railway companies and various other enterprises. He was the Consul for the Netherlands for many years, receiving in recognition of his services the Order of Knight of the Netherlands Lion. He was also Consul for Mecklenberg Schwerin. His work, however, by which he was best known in this city was in connection with the San Francisco Savings Union, founded by himself, John ARCHIBALD, Albert MILLER and others in 1862, and of which he was president for about twenty-five years, the success of the institution being in great measure due to his financial skill and the confidence reposed by the public in his prudence and integrity. Mr. de FREMERY was born on February 17, 1826, on the estate of his family at Ouwendyck, near The Hague, Holland. Leaving home at an early age, he arrived in New York in 1848, where he engaged in commercial pursuits. He remained there three years and left for California by way of Panama, arriving here in 1849. Socially he was excellent company, hospitable and charitable; deserving poverty never appealed to him in vain, and his charities followed the ungrateful as they did those who appreciated his benevolence. He was a man of extensive reading, and a writer of force; he contributed to the newspapers when there were objects to accomplish in the interests of progress and good government; he wrote miscellaneous articles on many occasions, and published several books. Of late years he has been busy with the preparation of a local history. The wife of Mr. de FREMERY died several years since in Switzerland. For descednants he leaves a son, James L. de FREMERY, resident in New York and a daughter, the wife of P.J. van LOBEN SELS, residing at the homestead in Oakland."

DENEHYat Redding last Monday evening at 6:30 o'clock, caused by the rupture of a blood vessel on the brain. Mr. DENEHY had been ill for a time and recently he was taken to Redding, where he was under the care of a specialist. Among the representative men of Modoc County, whose place of birth was in the British Isles and who with the industry and thrift characteristics of the people, was a successful, progressive and respected citizen of Modoc County and a successful merchant of Cedarville. A native of Ireland, he was born June 26, 1857, in the City of Cork, but was brought up and educated in England. In 1880, Mr. DENEHY came to America and for a while remained in the east working in New York City. Migrating to California in 1885, he was for ten years a wage earner in Surprise Valley. He then embarked in the mercantile pursuits, when he formed a partnership with James WILLIAMS of Fort Bidwell, with whom he built up a lucrative business, the firm name being D. S. DENEHY & Company. Under this same firm name the business was incorporated in May 1905, with a capital of $25,000. A short time after this a fine new brick building was erected and stocked with a complete line of dry goods, groceries, merchandise and all other kinds of implements, which soon earned their well known motto: "Everything for Everybody." In 1901, Mr. DENEHY was married to Miss Esther STREET and to them one child was born, Mrs. Dorothy SMITHSON, of San Francisco. He is survived by his wife and daughter and one grandchild, Allen Smith and a host of friends. The funeral will be held Thursday morning at 11 o'clock at the cemetery."

"DERRICK--TERRIBLE TRAGEDY --- A Man Shoots His Wife, her Paramour and Kills Himself -- A dispatch from San Francisco to the Sacramento 'Record' dated April 4th, gives the following account of a horrible tragedy that occurred in this city [San Francisco]: A terrible affray occurred about 2 o'clock today on the SE corner of Market and Second streets. John D. DERRICK a ship carpenter, from Vallejo, married about 6 months ago the stewardess of the 'Orizaba,' but she left him soon after and came to this city, where she has led a life of ill fame. DERRICK frequently tried to get her back to him, but she refused all intercourse. Some weeks ago he broke into her house, on Mission street, to get her away, and was arrested on a charge of burglary but was discharged on examination. His trouble concerning her appears to have driven him crazy. This afternoon he went to her room, corner of Second and Market, and found her in company with Frank EDWARDS, a waiter in a restaurant on Second street. She introduced him to EDWARDS, and they exchanged a few common place remarks. Mrs. DERRICK said she was going out and prepared to put on her cloak and bonnet. DERRICK wanted to go with her; she refused his company, and said she wanted no more to do with him. He then drew a 4-barreled Remington pistol and fired at EDWARDS, shooting him back of the head. EDWARDS fell to the floor. DERRICK then shot his wife once on the left side of the head, near the temple, and another through the left arm below the elbow. Then he put the pistol to his own head and lodged a bullet in his brain behind the right ear. His brains protruded from the wound, and he died at 20 minutes past 5 o'clock. EDWARDS is not dangerously wounded. The ball cut a deep scalp wound and caused profuse bleeding, but not serious. Mrs. DERRICK's wound is not necessarily fatal. With good attention, unless mortification sets in, she will recover. Upon searching DERRICK's pockets it was found that the act was deliberate, having had it in contemplation some weeks. Letters were found, written at various times, announcing suicidal intentions on account of his wife's infidelity. He made a written request that the city would take charge and educate his children, and requests his friends to bury him beside his 1st wife, and requests that under no circumstances shall his 2nd wife be buried near him -- declaring her the cause of his death. It appears that he mistook EDWARDS for a man named MITCHELL, whom he accuses of being his wife's paramour. To Charles MORGAN, Wells, Fargo & Co.'s messenger, he writes: "When you receive this I shall no non est. I wish to inform you, that you may be the instrument of exposing my wife. Charles, she is a terrible bad woman -- artful, low, cunning and won the sympathy of many by her plausible and tricky tale. Beware of her. Caution all others to do the same She is bad; trust her not. She now contemplates going stewardess on the 'Idaho,' for Honolulu. God Bless you. Good bye. Yours, most respectfully, J.D. DERRICK." The tragedy created great excitement and crowds gathered in the vicinity all the afternoon, discussing the details." Source: Stockton Daily Independent, 6 Apr 1869. Transcribed by Dee Sardoc.

WHEELER, who was passing, had been mortally wounded. There are numerous versions of the affair, but that most prevalent is that the 2 met on the sidewalk and had high words on account of articles attacking the Judge recently published in the 'Chronicle,' when LAKE struck De YOUNG with the pistol on the side of the head, inflicting a somewhat sever flesh wound, and one chamber of the pistol being discharged, the bullet passing through the thigh of Judge WHEELER, inflicting a severe, but not dangerous, wound. LAKE claims that De YOUNG attempted to draw his pistol when he drew his and struck him as stated. LAKE was instantly arrested by officers who were near at the moment, and taken to Chief CROWLEY's office and from thence to Judge PENNIE's office where he gave bail to appear to answer a charge of assault to murder. De YOUNG's friends claim that his wound came from the bullet and not from a blow with the butt of a pistol as stated, and some of the bystanders thought they heard 2 shots instead of 1. The pistol had only 1 chamber discharged." Source: Stockton Daily Independent (Stockton, San Joaquin Co., CA), 2 Dec 1871. Transcribed by Dee.
