"MULFORD--DEATH of DAVID L. MULFORD - Mr. David L. MULFORD, for several years the most efficient under sheriff, and for 2 years sheriff of Calaveras county, died at the What Cheer House, San Francisco, on Friday, 24th inst., of consumption, from which he had been suffering for a year or more. The 'Call' gives the following notice of the deceased: Mr. MULFORD was a native of Saratoga county, New York, but removed to Alabama and subsequently to Texas, in his boyhood, and resided in the last named State for many years. He came to California, crossing Mexico, in 1850. We remember him soon after as the deputy of Sheriff Chas. A. CLARK, Calaveras county, the duties of which position he for 4 years performed acceptably; and he was promoted by the people to the Shrievalty when CLARK retired. MULFORD afterwards held a place in the Custom House here, under the Democratic rule. His last venture was in the Idaho country, whither he turned steps that were growing weary through sickness, hoping that fresh scenes and climate would bring vigor and renewed years. As soon as he arrived at Boise River he was chosen Mining Recorder; subsequently, upon County organization being effected, he was elected Sheriff. Deceased was but 37 years old. An aged mother, who resides in Brooklyn, New York, will deeply mourn the long-absent son, now for ever lost to her on earth. She will have comfort, however, in knowing that he deserved and possessed many friends and that his end was peaceful. The Masonic fraternity, of which deceased was a member, will conduct the funeral ceremonies." Source: Stockton Daily Independent, 27 Feb 1865. Transcribed by Dee.

"MUNROE--HORRID MURDER of an INFANT by its MOTHER -- A most horrible and revolting murder of a child by its mother took place in San Francisco Sunday. Suspicions had been aroused on seeing a woman named Eliza MUNROE carrying a large bundle to an outhouse, and upon search being made, was discovered the dead body of a female child about 6 weeks old, wrapped up in clothes hidden beneath the seat of the outhouse. The head of the child had been severed from the body by some sharp instrument, and it was evident from the appearance of the cut, that several strokes had been made. The head was wrapped up in several clothes and the body in others, and both were stuffed into a pillowcase. The coroner being informed of these facts, made an examination of the premises, which are on a triangular lot on the corner of Kearney, Market and Geary streets, and upon searching the woman's bedroom, found an axe, the blade and handle of which were bloody. Buried under the sand in the lot, he found several pieces of a bloody washboard, some bloody rags, a parcel of shavings and 2 large pieces of rosin. It was evident that the woman had intended to burn the bloody boards and rags, and perhaps the body itself. On being taken to the station house by the Coroner, the woman confessed having murdered the child, stating that it was illegitimate, and she thought its death would save considerable trouble and expense to her husband and to herself on account of her husband. She said that the axe had fallen from her hand 3 times while attempting to commit the horrid deed. She finally laid the child upon the wash-board, and with 2 blows severed the head from the body. She cleaned up the blood with rags which she concealed in the yard where they were found. She afterwards washed the head and body of the child, wrapped them up, and carried them to the outhouse. The woman, after reaching the Station House, was confined in a cell, and she is still there. She is rather tall; about 30 years of age; rather fine looking, but with a troubled and unsettled expression. She is said to be a native of Cork, Ireland. She has, neverless, told a calm story, and has not shown any insanity while in the station house. She walks her cell and seems much troubled." Source: Stockton Daily Argus, 17 Mar 1857.

"MURPHY--THE TRIAL of GUNN for MURDER --Dennis GUNN has been tried in San Francisco for the murder of Edward J. MURPHY. On the 31st of last December, GUNN shot and killed MURPHY on Pine street for the alleged seduction of his sister. During the trial on Thursday, Miss GUNN, aged 19, testified that an outrage had been perpetrated upon her at the millinery store, at which she worked, on Sutter street, several months before the shooting took place. She called for help, but none came. She did not give information of MURPHY's conduct, because he threatened to kill her if she did, and promised to marry her if she did not. A month afterward, the outrage was repeated at MURPHY's shop, where witness went to make arrangements for the marriage. After witness was told that MURPHY was already married and living with his wife, these facts were not repeated. Witness did not inform on MURPHY at any time for fear he would kill her. Dennis GUNN, her brother, received a letter from some source informing him of what had been going on. He became very much excited, showed the letter to his sister and asked her if it was true. On being told that it was, he procured a pistol and shot MURPHY. The defense also proved that MURPHY was a very corrupt man, that he had 3 wives living and that he had boasted that he had seduced Miss GUNN under a promise of marriage. The jury returned a verdict of "not guilty," last evening, when the widest demonstration of delight were indulged in by the crowd in the Court room." Source: Stockton Daily Independent, 25 Mar 1871.

MURPHY--DAIRYMAN IS FOUND DEAD,  Joeseph F.  Dies at home on Dows Prairie--ARCATA, April 23--- Joseph F. MURPHY, aged 60, for twelve years past, a dairyman at Dow's Prairie, was found dead in bed this morning about 10 o'clock by his friend and neighbor, Joseph FLECKENSTEIN. MURPHY had been ill and failing for several months, but his condition did not appear to FLECKENSTEIN, who visited him during the evening preceding his death. He had attended to his milking and other chores late in the day. Several heart attacks over a period of a few years had occassioned remarks from the deceased that he expected death to come to him suddenly. Coroner Oscar Swanson was notified and an inquest will be held, probably Tuesday. The deceased came to Arcata from San Francisco and settled at Dow's Prairie about twelve years ago. He had theretofore been a cement contractor. It is practically established that a wife and two children in San Francisco survive him. Until after the inquest no funeral will be made.

"MURRAY--HUGH C. MURRAY -- Sacramento 'Age' -- Chief Justice MURRAY died early Friday morning of perforation of the lungs, in the 34th year of his age. He was born at St. Louis, Missouri, on the 22d of April, 1825. His parents were not in the affluent walks of life; shortly after his birth they removed to Alton, Illinois; when he was 10 years old, his father died. He was educated at Surtleff College, Upper Alton, and studied law with Nelson D. STRONG, of Lower Alton, and was admitted to practice in 1845. In 1847 he was appointed to a Lieutenancy in the 14th Infantry, United States Army, and was present at the battles of Contreras and Cherubusco, and at the storming of Chapultepec Castle. He returned to Illinois during the year 1848, and departed for California, arriving here in 1849. He was elected Judge of the San Francisco Superior Court in 1850 and in 1851 was appointed by Governor McDOUGAL Judge of the Supreme Court in place of BENNET. In 1852 he was elected to that position at a general election, and in 1855 was again elected, and became Chief Justice by right of seniority. As a lawyer, Hugh C. MURRAY was considered more profound than skillful; as a jurist, it is conceded that he possessed superior, and, perhaps, very extra ordinary capacity. As a man, he was driven by quick impulse, and the mental vastly predominated over the moral." Source: Stockton Daily Argus, 21 Sept 1857. Transcribed by Dee.

Friends and acquaintances are invited to attend.] DEATH of a PIONEER -- Isaac MURRAY, an old resident of this city, died yesterday afternoon of pneumonia, which resulted from a cold contracted about a week ago. Deceased was born on the Island of Alderney, Sept. 19, 1796, and when quite young went to Stockport, England, where he engaged in the manufacture of cotton goods. In 1834 or '35, he left England for the City of Mexico, where he resided 14 years and followed the same manufacturing business which he had pursued in England. He came to California and took up his residence in Stockton in July, 1849, and built some of the first frame buildings erected in the city, and which still stand on Market street. Shortly after arriving in Stockton, he went to the mines and there was engaged in mining and storekeeping for about 2 years, returned to Stockton in 1852, and has resided here constantly since that time. Deceased was a man who possessed more than ordinary intelligence, was a clear and forcible thinker, a strong advocate of the principles of freedom and the rights of man, and no opposition could swerve him from what he considered to be right. As a man of moral worth and sterling integrity he commanded the respect and esteem of his fellow citizens. He leaves several daughters in this city and, we believe, 3 or 4 sons in San Francisco, to mourn his death. Mr. MURRAY was a member of San Joaquin Society of California Pioneers."
