"KOON--CHINESE FUNERAL ? At 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon a large concourse of Chinese, male and female, collected together at the house of YON KOON, Hunter street, to witness the funeral ceremonies performed in respect to the deceased doctor. Mr. Alfred N. BLAKE conducted the funeral. About 20 minutes past 3 o'lcok the remain, in a mahogany coffin, were carried out and deposited in the hearse, when the procession began to move to the steamer on which the body was taken to San Francisco. 2 carriages containing female mourners closely followed the hearse, and about 150 males followed on foot, each assuming, for the time being, a peculiarly downcast and melancholy phase of countenance. The remains being deposited on the larboard guard of the Cornelia, the chief mourner, a woman, was conducted from a carriage by 5 of her own sex to the boat. This occurrence attracted more notice from the crowd than any other thing connected with the funeral. The woman was dressed in white, and her head enveloped so completely in a capacious hood that her face could not be seen; and the stooping posture of her body while trying to walk brought her nose within a few inches of the ground. This ended the mummery, and shortly the steamer left and so did the crowd. This is the last of "YON KOON." Source: Stockton Daily Independent, 15 June 1864. Transcribed by Dee Sardoch.
"KOON--LYING in STATE ? More than 100 persons visited the medical office of YON KOON yesterday, to see the body lying in state and satisfy the cravings of curiosity by observing the pagan humbuggery of the living heathens that were hired to do the mourning. At the head of the body sat a woman with a capacious hood of white cotton sheeting on her head, keeping the flies off, while 4 others were appealing to "Josh" in a jargon only intelligible to themselves, but surely not to the heathen deity of their imagination. Near the body lay a dead hen and about a pint of nuts, chop-sticks and scraps of papers and trinkets of every imaginary shape and color, and any amount of other jimcrackery, gathered only by heathens in the chamber of death. Considerable tallow and oil were wasted in shedding light on the subject; yet after all it appeared dark and stupid to outsiders. But it is their way of doing such things, and they seem to spare no pains and efforts to accomplish enough. The body will be sent to San Francisco on the steamer this afternoon, thence to China."
