"FINN--James J. FINN (1844/45-1925) - When the last chapter in the history of the Far West is finally written, the just chronicler will accord a preeminent place to the Irish. That history is indissolubly linked with the mining industry, and on that the adventurous Celt has left an indelible mark. The greatest mines, from the Rockies to the Sierras, have been discovered by Irishmen, and the greatest miners have been of the same race. DALY in Montana, MacKAY and FAIR in Nevada, KEARNS in Utah, Clark in Idaho, BARNS and WALSH in Colorado, are but a few of the names that suggest themselves in this connection. And, how many know that the great COMSTOCK Lode, named after a loudmouthed pretender really discovered by Peter O'RILEY and Patrick McLAUGHLIN?
One of that hardy race of pioneers who helped to develop the Far West, a miner who left the imprint of his personality on more that one of the great camps of his generation, passed away at St. Joseph's Hospital, Stockton, on Friday afternoon, May 8, when James FINN, weary of earthly wandering, set sail for the fort of final rest. Mr. FINN was a true Irishman, born in County Kerry, and imbued with a love of everything a patriotic Irishman should love. He was a Gaelic scholar, who wrote and recited in Gaelic and sang the songs of his native land in its Native tongue.He was in Virginia City and Gold Hill in the days when the Big Bonanza of the Comstock was pouring forth its cornucopia of gold and silver. He was in Bodie when the lynching of "Frenchy" helped to fasten on the memory of the West the immortal phrase, " a bad man from Bodie". He was in Grass Valley and Nevada City when the famous ALLISON Ranch Mine was still numbered among the producers of gold. And yet he spent more than forty years of his life in San Francisco, only leaving here when his health began to fail, about eighteen months ago, to spend his last days at St. Joseph's Hospital in Stockton, where one of his daughters, Sister M. COLUMBA, O. S. D., is stationed. There he passed many pleasant hours in the company of James CANIFFE, another Gaelic veteran well known to readers of The Leader. In addition to Sister M. COLUMBA, he left another daughter, Sister Catherine FINN, of the Sisters of Charity, now at Yaochow Ki, China. Of his other children, James, Richard and Elizabeth FINN and Mrs. Paul C. HAMANN reside in San Francisco, and Mrs. Mark POOLE and Mrs Ray GRIER in Oakland. His beloved wife, Ellen, died here in the Fall of 1918. A daughter, Mrs. William GEDDES, also preceded him to the tomb. A Sister, Mrs. Thomas BALDWIN survives him here. A solemn requiem high Mass for the repose of his soul was sung at St. Joseph's Church, San Francisco, on Monday morning, May 11, beginning at 10 o'clock, with the Rev. Henry O' Flynn as celebrant, the Rev. John F. Dunn as deacon, the Rev. Francis Mulvihill as sub-deacon, and the Rev. Father McCarthy of St. Patrick's Seminary, Menlo Park, master of ceremonies. The Rev. Father Martin, O. P., was present in the sanctuary. Interment was in Holy Cross Cemetery." Source: 'The Leader' (an Irish Newspaper published in San Francisco). Contact: Robert G.

They were among the builders of the Eastern commonwealths… He received his literary education in the high school and academies of his

native State and thereafter attended the Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, where he graduated in 1849. Returning to Maine he practiced medicine until 1851, leaving in May of that year for California by way of Panama. Reaching San Francisco on July 7, 1851, he left that same evening for Sacramento, going thence to Volcano, Amador county…he engaged in mining, remaining until the winter of 1852, meanwhile incidentally practicing his profession. On Christmas Day, 1852, he left San Francisco for the East, making the journey via Panama, to visit his friends and relatives. In the spring of 1853 he started again for California, this time coming by the overland route. At Terre Haute, Indiana, the most westerly point that could then be reached by rail, was formed the firm of FLINT, BIXBY & Company… composed of Dr. FLINT, his brother Benjamin and Llewellyn BIXBY, a cousin.

"FLINT--DEATH of WILSON FLINT -- Our exchanges bring us the sorrowful intelligence of the death of Hon. Wilson FLINT, of Sacramento -- a gentleman who has perhaps done more, by his pen and by his individual influence and example, to advocate the agricultural interests of California than any other citizen of the State. Mr. FLINT died at San Francisco on the 4th inst., of congestive chills. The 'Bulletin' of the same date furnished the following sketch of the deceased. We are necessarily compelled to abbreviate it somewhat: Wilson FLINT was born in New Hampshire in 1825. In 1842 he went from New York, where he had engaged in mercantile pursuits, to Galveston, Texas. While in Texas, his reflective and sagacious mind became strongly convinced of the moral and economical evil of slavery, and he left that State in 1849, as he told the writer of this, because he was unwilling to have his children grow up under its vicious influence, and did not feel at home under it himself. He believed, moreover; that the struggle for its extension and perpetuation would result in civil war. Mr. FLINT made his first home in our State at San Francisco, where he built the large warehouse which still stands at North Point, and was very prosperous until the overdoing of the warehouse business caused a sudden reaction that involved him in heavy losses. In 1856, he was elected to the State Senate from this county on the American or Know Nothings mainly because he thought their organization could be used to break down the pro-slavery Democratic influence which then ruled the State. During his term, Henry S. FOOTE, late Confederate Senator, who had just come to California on a political venture from Mississippi, was the Know Nothing candidate for United States Senator. Mr. FLINT, together with ASHLEY, of Monterey, (now Congressman from Nevada), and WAITE, of Nevada county, and perhaps 1 or 2 others, concluded that FOOTE was an unfit man, who, if elected, would serve the slavery aggressionists. He was the caucus nominee, however, and could only be defeated by preventing a joint convention. It was found that a single vote would suffice to prevent a convention, and Mr. FLINT cast that vote day after day. The service he did the State by defeating FOOTE can be estimated now when we reflect that had FOOTE been elected he would have been representing California during the exciting session of Congress which preceded the rebellion, and until the 2nd year of the war, and would doubtless have ranked himself among the opponents of LINCOLN's policy if he had not resigned with others to assist in organizing the rebel government. Mr. FLINT served 1 term in the State Senate, and retiring to private life lent the valuable aid of his influence and example to the support of the Republican party. Among the 1st to counsel the consolidation of the Union vote, he was to the last a supporter of the more advanced principles of that party. We regret that lack of space prevents us from paying a worthier tribute to his memory. The best compliment that could be paid him, now that he is gone, would be the collection and publication in book form of his agricultural writings. The act would at the same time be a service to the State." Source: Stockton Daily Independent, 7 Jan 1867. Transcribed by Dee Sardoc.

Mrs. TRASK and her daughter were settled in San Francisco as were many other wives and children of clipper ship skippers. The little girl made several voyages to the Orient with her father on the Bohemia. Mrs. FLOOD was married in the early 1890’s. She is survived by two sons, Dr. Randolph G.
