"KIDDER--DEATH of CHARLES A. KIDDER -- The Vallejo 'Independent' contains the following concerning the late absconding clerk of Solano county: On last Wednesday a dispatch was received in this city, from Watsonville, announcing the fact that Chas. A. KIDDER was there and in a dying condition. Another telegram, received on Thursday, stated that he had died early that morning. Deceased was an old resident of this city [Vallejo], having lived here about 10 years, and was well known throughout Solano county. He at one time held a clerkship on the Navy Yard, and while occupying that position his actions were at times unaccountably strange. He would go and come from the yard for several weeks at a time without ever speaking to any one, unless in answer to a direct question. He was appointed afterwards City Clerk, and in that capacity often acted very strange. In 1871 he was elected County Clerk, which position he occupied but a few months when he suddenly disappeared, no one knew where. Some thought he had been foully dealt with, others that he had gone East, but the majority were nonplussed. Reports prevailed from time to time that he had been seen in San Francisco, yet these reports were very hard to believe, but eventually proved to be true. Finally, Mr. SNOW met him in the southern part of California, when KIDDER asserted that he would never return to Solano county. A week had scarcely elapsed before KIDDER made his appearance in Vallejo, as our readers are already aware. After remaining here one day only, he left for San Francisco, whence he proceeded to Watsonville, where he died on Thursday morning. It is reported that Mrs. KIDDER was with him in his last moments. The Masonic fraternity of which he was a member will [illeg]. In view of his former history, it seems quite probable that he was not in his right mind and that to this fact is to be attributed his sudden disappearance without cause and strange conduct before and after."

KIELY, a San Francisco man, who fell off the steamer Oakland on January 7th, while returning from Oakland with his wife and children, was recovered from the bay near the end of Long Wharf to-day. Identification was made by means of clothing, for the body was unrecognizable. KIELY was employed by Nolan Bros., in San Francisco. While crossing the bay, after a visit to Oakland, he lost his balance and fell from the railing of the steamer. His son gave an alarm, and the deck-hands thought the boy was joking.

"KINDERMANN--SUICIDE -- The community was shocked with the news of another suicide about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The unfortunate was Mrs. Emily KINDERMANN, wife of Gustavus KINDERMANN. She leaves 3 little children, the eldest of whom is 5 years of age and cannot realize the calamity that has befallen them. The husband of the unfortunate woman was formerly employed at the Pacific Tannery in this city and about 3 weeks ago went to San Francisco where he has remained to the present time. Mr. Edward ALISKY, with whom the deceased has been boarding at the corner of Main and American streets, furnished us a statement which is about as follows: The deceased for the past few months has been subject to fits of mental derangement and frequently neglected duties to her family. After her husband left for San Francisco to work at his trade in the Laguna Tannery, she became more insane; she came to the conclusion that her husband was dead and pronounced a letter which he had written her a forgery. She frequently has mentioned an intention to commit suicide. Yesterday afternoon she was visited by a physician who prescribed for her. A bath was recommended, and accordingly she went to her room for that purpose, but within a half an hour afterward the family of Mr. ALISKY was horrified to learn that the deceased was hanging in a wood shed upon an adjoining lot. The deceased evidently stood upon a chair and adjusted a clothes-line around her neck and then made it fast above, and in a moment more committed the lamentable deed. When found she was not entirely lifeless and an effort was made to restore her, but proved unavailing. Her body was taken to the Coroner's office where an inquest will doubltess be held today."

"KINDERMANN--CORONER’S INQUEST -- Last Saturday evening Coroner BOND summoned a jury and held 2 inquests -- one over the body of Mrs. [illeg] KINDERMANN, whose death by suicide has already been made public; and the other over the body of the Mexican who died suddenly on Friday night. The gentlemen summoned and sworn as jurors were John T. OLDHAM, E.R. ROBERTS, T.W. BIRCH, G.W. DOW and John GRATTAN. In the case of Mrs. KINDERMANN, the testimony elicited was as follows: Edward ALISKY, sworn -- I have known the deceased for a year past, since she came from the East. Her name is Emma KINDERMANN, aged 29 years, and married; her husband is working at the Laguna Tannery, San Francisco; she has 4 children -- 1 in Germany and 3 here. She boarded at my house, corner of Main and American streets; her rooms were next door; she and her husband lived very unhappily together. The doctors and Judge GREENE came yesterday by request of her friends to examine whether or not she was insane; they found her insane and issued a commitment; Dr. EICHLER has it now; she pleaded to be left with her children; they told her if she would behave herself and take good care of her children she might remain a few days; about half-past 1 o’clock, after they left, my wife went to look for Mrs. KINDERMANN and could not find her in the house; she inquired of the children where their mother was, and they pointed to the wood-house or chicken-house; she went there and found Mrs. KINDERMANN suspended by the neck to a rafter, with a chair near her, within 2 ½ or 3 feet; my wife gave the alarm; I went and cut deceased down; I found she was dead; gave her stimulants, etc., and tried to revive her. The name of her husband is Gustavus KINDERMANN. Mrs. ALISKY was called and sworn and the lady corroborated her husband’s testimony. Dr. EICHLER, sworn -- I knew the deceased; Dr. STOCKTON and myself examined her yesterday (Friday), Sept. 6, 1872, for the purpose of committing her to the Insane Asylum. We prepared a commitment to send her immediately to the Asylum, but she begged so hard not to be taken from her children and promised to take care of them, that I gave her permission to stay a day or 2, and see how she would do. After that, we left; that was the last time I saw her alive. THE VERDICT -- The jury rendered the following verdict: We, the jury, find the name of the deceased to be Emma KINDERMANN, aged about 29 years, a native of Germany, and that she came to her death on the 6th day of September, A.D. 1872, by suicide, or hanging herself by the neck in a fit of insanity, in an outhouse in the rear of Edward ALISKY’s residence, corner of American and Main streets, city of Stockton."

"KLOPPEMBURG--Otto KLOPPENBURG, a pioneer resident of this city, and formerly Treasurer of the city and county of San Francisco, passed away at his residence, 224 Grove Street on Thursday last at the age of 84 years. In death of the aged argonaut, his bereaved widow and only child are overwhelmed with grief, and by a strange significance, KLOPPENBURG's body will be cremated tomorrow on the sixty first anniversary of his wedding day. KLOPPENBURG was born in Scharmbeck, Germany, and came to the United States when he was a young man. He resided in New York, City for a time, and when news of the discovery of gold in California reached the East, he decided to come to the land of promise. He arrived in this State in the early 1850's and six months later followed his young bride. He embarked in the grocery business and won the confidence by his sterling qualities and integrity. He opened a store on the southwest corner of Pine and Montgomery streets, where the Russ house now stands. He was partner in the wholesale liquor firm of KLOPPENBURG and BRETVIDEL and enjoyed the trust of the entire commercial community. In 1868, KLOPPENBERG was elected City and County Treasurer and won a second term by a large majority. He was a candidate for the third term, but the Democratic party, to which he belonged, suffered defeat on that occasion. In the 1870's he embarked in a lead smelting enterprise, and with his associates, erected a costly plant near Six mile house. He invested a large sum of money in the concern, but the venture proved a failure and KLOPPENBURG was a heavy loser. He refused to accept the offer of compromise from his creditors and insisted on paying his debts in full. He then started a cigar box business on Brannan Street and again suffered a heavy loss by fire. For the last fifteen years, he was involved in various mercantile enterprises and was highly respected. He is survived by his widow (Lucy), and one child, the wife of Phillipp KIEFER, a wholesale liquor dealer. Three grandsons of the deceased, Otto C, Gustave H and Harry N KIEFER are well known in the mercantile world. Funeral services will be held tomorrow at his late residence and will be conducted by Rev. Herman GEHREKE, pastor of St. Matthew's Evangelical Lutheran Church. The remains will be cremated at Oddfellows' Cemetery."  Source: San Francisco Call, 3 May, 1902, page 8. Transcribed by Sandi Bordelon.
