"STANTON--On Wednesday afternoon last, Charles STANTON, formerly of San Francisco, was drowned while bathing in the Russian River, near Duncan's Mills. He had lately come from San Francisco to take a position as steward with Mr. MOORE, proprietor of the Grand Hotel, Duncan Mills. He had not intended to assume duties of his new position until the first of the month, and in the meantime had been familiarizing himself with the many attractive spots which abound in that part of the county. The friend who was in the water with him says that STANTON, without any previous warning, uttered a piercing shriek and sank out of sight beneath the swiftly flowing current. He had been taken with a cramp, and, being in deep water, quite a distance from the shore, his death was inevitable. Every effort to recover the body has been without avail, and as a last resort, giant powder is being used in the hope of floating the corpse."

"STANTON--The Water Supply-Mining Accidents--Virginia (Nev.) Sept 1, 1870--Fatal Mining Accident--I grieve that I have to relate another sad mining accident, which has occurred since my last letter. On Thursday evening, the 25th of August, Thomas STANTON and David RYAN were killed in the main shaft of the HALE & NORCROSS mine- killed instantly, by the cage falling to the bottom of the shaft. The breaking of a bolt was the cause of the mischief. There is no reason to accuse the managers of the mine of any want of precaution-that is, such precautions are are usually taken, but it seems that the lives of these poor miners should not be dependent on so slight a thing. There ought to be some way of stopping the cage when such an accident happens-something more between these poor fellows and a dreadful death than a single bolt. Both of the men were quite young-one thirty years of age only, the other thirty-four. Both leave wives to lament their loss, one leaves also two children, and the unhappy mother about to be confined of a third. The funerals took place on Saturday, and were very largely attended. There were some sixty carriages in the procession, and about 500 mimbers of the Miners' Union on foot. There is something to me very sad in these funerals, and though I have winessed many of them I never can to so with the persons who havd died a natural death, surrounded by ther relatives and friends. I see walking in the procession fine, healthy looking men, patient and strong, and brave, and think how soon many of these may be even as the men they are following."

"STATES--Willaim N. STATES was found dead in his bed, at a room at The Empire Lodging House, on Commercial Street at half past five o'clcok last evening [14 Jan 1875]. The body, when found, was lying across the bed, the upper part, resting against the wall, the feet overhanging the the bed, thus giving reason to belive he had attempted to rise and fallen dead in the attempt. He was found in that position. Very soon after, Dr. SILVERS was summoned and gave his opinion he had not been long deceased. STATES was an old resident of California, coming here in 1849 from New London, Connecticut, of which town he was a native. He conducted a restaurant for a number of years on Long Wharf. For a long time afterward, he was a special police officer on Jackson Street among the Chinese quarters. It was during those years, he became attached and married to Agatha, one of the three MANDEVILLE Sisters, then becoming popular in theatrical circles as singers in this city. They travelled Europe, where she achieved great fame. After they returned to San Francisco. Their lives became such that they could no longer live peacelbly together and she obtained a divorce; the chief cause being his dissipated habits. While she continued the profession on stage, he did little, only eaking out an existence as best he could, as special watchman about circuses or other places of amusement. At one period of his California life, he was wealthy. Six months ago, his former wife died in New York, and it is said he has since drank constantly and heavily, for though long seperated from her, he still seemed attached to her. He has relatives still living in New London. Deceased was about forty-nine years of age." Source: Daily Alta California, 15 Jan 1875, p.1. Transcribed by Sandi Bordelon.

"STEARNS--Dispatch from San Francisco, Aug. 27 -- ABEL STEARNS -- The ‘Alta’ of Friday has the following concerning this gentleman, well known throughout the State: The funeral of Don Abel STEARNS, who died at the Grand Hotel on Wednesday afternoon, will take place tomorrow at 10 a.m. from the St. Mary’s Cathedral. The Pioneers will take due steps to show honor to one of the foremost of their number. While yet a young man he left his home in Massachusetts and passed some time in Mexico, from thence coming to California, then a Mexican State, in 1828. He was 82 at the time of his death. He settled in Los Angeles, where he since resided. He was largely engaged in trading, stock and land speculations, and when gold was discovered in 1848 he was owner of several hundred thousand acres of land and about 50,000 head of fine cattle. In 1842 he made the 1st shipment of California gold on record. At that time a few Mexicans from Sonora were working the placers at San Francisquita, about 35 miles NW from Los Angeles, which were worked until 1846, yielding $6,000 or $8,000 a year. Mr. STEARNS sent 18 ¾ ounces of this gold to the United States Mint, at Philadelphia, on the 22d of November, 1842; and the certificate of assay which he received Aug. 6, 1843, is now in the archives of the San Francisco Society of Pioneers, of which body Mr. STEARNS was a member. Since the settlement of the State by Americans, following the large gold discovery at Sutter’s Mill in 1848, he was not by any means always fortunate in his speculations, and his estate became reduced. In Los Angeles his loss will be specially felt." Source: Stockton Daily Independent, 28 Aug 1871. Transcribed by Dee.
"STEARNS--After living eighty three years and trying for the last two years to bear the affliction of finishing life's journey deprived of the society of his wife who went before him, Charles G. STEARNS, a retired capatilist, hanged himself yesterday afternoon. He had been living for years with his sister-in-law, Mrs. James A. DYER at 822 Dolores Street. His despondency had been noticed for some time and he had frequently threatened to end his life. Mrs. DYER found a note on the old man's dresser saying: "I am down in the cellar". She went there at once and found the body hanging to a rafter. The old man knotted a rope around his neck, and standing on a barrel, had kicked the support from beneath him and strangled to death. The deceased was a native of New Hampshire, and was supposed to have considerable wealth. His estate is said to consist largely of money in one of the local banks. He resided in San Francisco about ten years." Source: San Francisco Call, 2 May 1902, page 8. Transcribed by Sandi Bordelon.

"STOW--GONE OVER THE RANGE - W.W. STOW - W.W. STOW, who died last month in San Francisco, was born in Binghampton, Broome County, New York, Sept. 18, 1824. He graduated from Hamilton College and was admitted to the Supreme Court of New York. He practiced law then until 1849, when he started for this State. He reached here in 1852 and settled in Santa Cruz County as a farmer, renting places near Watsonville in the Pajaro Valley. He was elected to the Legislature in 1853 as an independent candidate. He was a Whig, and though the county was then Democratic, he was re-elected to the Assembly in 1854. In 1855 he was chosen Speaker of the House. He then retired from politics. However, July 25, 1854, he was a candidate before the Whig convention for Congressional nomination but before a vote was taken his name was withdrawn. On August 8, 1855, he was a candidate before the American State convention for the office of Governor, but was defeated by J. Neely JOHNSON. Mr. STOW then opened a law office in San Francisco, and was associated with Harvey S. BROWN for a time. He soon obtained a large practice, especially in land cases. In 1858 he was joined by his wife's brother, W.H. PATERSON, who came from Elmire, N.Y. For a time the firm was known as STOW and PATERSON. In 1863 W.T. WALLACE, now Superior Judge of San Francisco, joined the fire, but in 1868 he withdrew. STOW then became prominently identified with the Central Pacific Railroad Company. However, in the early sixties STOW laid the foundation of his fortune by purchasing lands in the southern part of the State, principally in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties, where two of his sons now are. The Laguna rancho he bought outright. He also purchased a claim to the Corral del Piedra and by his knowledge of law and shrewdness achieved a victory out of which he cleared about $200,000. Other similar investments netted him good returns. From 1870 Mr. STOW became ruler of the State in a certain political way. He was the agent of the railroad company and was admitted to be the ablest politician known in California. During the past six years he has devoted his time principally to Golden Gate Park."
