"MEACHAM--In Dogtown, Butte county, Sept. 6th, Mrs. Margaret Olivia MEACHAM, aged 34 years and 8 months." Source: San Francisco Daily Examiner, 20 Sept 1865.
"MEACHAM--Death of Mrs. MEACHAM, one of the first settlers in Santa Rosa Township. It is with much regret that we announce the death of Mrs. Sarah MEACHAM, wife of Alonzo MEACHAM, who resides on Mark West creek near Fulton. In the death of Mrs. MEACHAM one of the oldest of the residents of Santa Rosa township disappears from the walks of life. Mrs. MEACHAM was aged about 69 years. In 1851 her husband was engaged in merchandising on the corners of California and Montgomery streets in San Francisco, in partnership with the late Berthold HOEN. The great fire of that year burned them out. Mr. HOEN after the fire went to Oregon, and Mr. MEACHAM, at the instance of Donald McDONALD, the father of Mrs. George HALL, of this city, came to Santa Rosa. McDONALD and his partner, David MALLAGH, had a store at the old adobe on Santa Rosa creek, and Mr. MEACHAM had met them in a business way. The result of the visit was the purchase by MEACHAM of the business, and he came here to reside permanently. In the fall of 1852 Barney HOEN returned from Oregon and bought an interest in the business. In the following spring, 1853, the late T. HAHMAN came up and bought out the interest of MEACHAM in the business. Mr. MEACHAM had in this interval purchased eighty acres of land of CARILLO, of which the westerly line ran through the center of the plaza and Mendocino street to the Bridge Williams slough. This tract is now the main portion of the city of Santa Rosa. MEACHAM afterward sold the land as an entirety to HAHMAN & HOEN. He has resided ever since in the county, both he and his wife, up to the time of her death on Wednesday last. Mrs. MEACHAM was a very bright woman who was beloved by all who knew her, and her long residence in the county had made her many friends. She has a daughter, Mrs. CASEWIN of Oakland, and three sons, one of whom is a resident of Redwood City. The deceased was among the oldest continuous residents of this county, and it is a sad task which has devolved upon us to make this inefficent and too short notice of her long, memorable and useful life. The funeral will take place on Friday at her late residence, and the interment will be in the cemetery here, overlooking the CARILLOadobe ranch house, which was her first home in the county forty-two years ago."
