"WHALEN--DROWNED in the SAN JOAQUIN RIVER -- Wednesday evening, about 6 o'clock, says the 'Bulletin,' as the steamer J. Bragdon was on her way down from Stockton and about 20 miles from this city, a man named Peter WHALEN was seen to get deliberately upon the rail, on the boiler deck, and leap into the river. A boat was immediately lowered and pulled to the spot where he fell; but it was too late; he had sunk and drowned! His body was not recovered. WHALEN is supposed to have been of Irish parentage. He lived lately in Stockton and then in San Francisco. He was a married man and leaves a wife. The 'Sun' says that great credit is due Captain SEELY for his efforts to rescue the drowning man."

Fairfax Henry WHEELAN, prominent for many years in San Francisco's club, social and political life, died at his home, 1233 Taylor street, yesterday morning after a lingering illness. At his bedside when the end came were his wife Albertine, his sister, Miss Naomi WHEELAN of Santa Barbara, and two sons, Edgar STOW of Fairfax Randall WHEELAN of San Francisco. Born in San Francisco 58 years ago, WHEELAN prepared for Harvard at McClures's Military School. He was graduated from Harvard with the class of 1880, together with Theodore ROOSEVELT, Robert BACON, Vanderlyn STOW, Fred SHARON, William F. SHARP and William Hoff COOK. At Harvard he was editor of the "Crimson" and a member of Hasty Pudding. He wrote several of the college plays and cartoons, and two of these occupy either side of the proscenium arch in the Hasty Pudding's new clubrooms. WHEELAN was president of the Harvard Club in San Francisco for many years, and was a charter member of the University Club, which organization he served as president for two years. He was president of the Chit Chat and Unitarian clubs a few years ago. As vice president of the Southern Pacific Milling Company and a past president of the Western Retail Lumbermen's Association he was instrumental in bringing the 1915 convention of lumbermen to San Francisco. Love of children led him to start the "Homeless Children Commission" in the Native Sons Order, and he took an active part in the workings of the Associated Charities. WHEELAN became prominently identified with local politics at the beginning of the graft prosecution being one, of the leaders in the movement launched to clean up San Francisco . For a number of years Mr. WHEELAN was director and vice president of the Merchant's Association and a director in the Merchant's Exchange. The funeral which will be held today, will be private."

"WIGHTMAN--James WIGHTMAN of 3509 Seventeenth Street, killed himself last Wednesday night by asphyxiation with illuminating gas in the bathroom of his residence. He had been a widower for two years and grieved very much over the death of his wife. His despondency increased by the fact that he had not been able to secure employment since he went out on strike with the City Front Federation nearly a year ago. He had four children, the youngest whom is eight years old, and the eldest, Hattie, 19. When Hattie and her brother John discovered the odor of escaping gas at 6:30 o'clock yesterday morning, they traced it to the bathroom and found their father lying dead on the floor. The stopcock of the single gas burner was fully open. On his person was found the following note: Dear Hattie: I hope you will forgive me for this cruel deed as I cannot live the way things have been going against me. No matter how hard I try, misfortune seems to start in my way. I know it is cruel to leave you with all of the responsibility, but I cannot stand it any longer. "Hattie, remember your poor mother's last words to you, as she was good to all of us and may God help you to keep her wishes. You know who your friends are, and I hope you will get the insurance, which is in your name, as I know you will always look out for the little ones, and may God bless you all is the last wish of your loving father, - James WIGHTMAN" Source: San Francisco Call, 2 May 1902, page 8.

"WILCOX--SUPPOSED MURDERER ARRESTED -- A man named James WILCOX, who was in some way connected with the murderer of SNELLING at Snelling's Ranch, on the Merced, about a year since, has been arrested in San Francisco. The story of the connection of WILCOX in the affair is thus told by the S.F. 'Bulletin:' It appears that at the time specified, E.P. BARCLAY, Wm. STEVENS and Jas. WILCOX, friends of EDWARDS, the murderer of William SNELLING, were transacting some business at the Sheriff's office in Snelling's. They were attacked and fired upon by Charles F. BLOODWORTH, Dr. J.W. GOODWIN and Benj. WHITE, who were friends of the murdered man. The fire was returned, and some 30 shots discharged -- taking effect upon BARCLAY and STEVENS, both of whom died almost instantly. While apparently in the agonies of death, BARCLAY raised himself and shot GOODWIN through the head, killing him instantly. GOODWIN had previously given BARCLAY his death wound. BLOODWORTH and WHITE were not injured, and WILCOX, an accomplice of EDWARDS, the murderer of SNELLING, escaped. This EDWARDS was hung not long since and the prisoner WILCOX is supposed to have been a party with him in many a bloody deed." Source: Weekly Stockton Democrat, 27 Mar 1859. Transcribed by Dee.

WILLIAMS, or as he was fami1iarly known, "Bridge" WILLIAMS, shortly after one o'clock on Thursday afternoon.. The old pioneer had been nearing the confines of the other world for a number of years, and had long been weighed down by the infirmities of great age. He was eighty-seven years of age. The deceased was widely known and years ago occupied an influential position among the residents of the county at the time when he was taking an active interest in its business and financial affairs. He was a kindly old gentleman and never tired, during his last years, in greeting old friends upon the street, by talking with them of pioneer days in California, Sonoma county and Santa Rosa. Mr. WILLIAMS was a native of Detroit, Mich. He leaves five children. For many years prior to his death he made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Fred G. NAGLE, wife of the county recorder. The other surviving children are George and Frank WILLIAMS of Freestone, James M. WILLIAMS and Mrs. T. H. BROWN of Stockton. Mr. WILLIAMSfirst came to California in 1850 and immediately went to the mines in Sierra county. In 1853 he went east and married and returned west immediately. In the fall of 1860 Mr. WILLIAMS came to Santa Rosa. In 1872 he was the first president of the board of Trustees of the City of Santa Rosa. This was before the city government was vested in a mayor and council. He started the first water works here, which was located on the Hahman tract, the water being developed from what was known as the Hahman Springs. He was at one time greatly interested in hydraulic mining. Mrs. WILLIAMS passed away in 1887. The name "Bridge" was applied to Mr. WILLIAMS on account of the fact that he once owned the block of property at Mendocino and Tenth streets and had a fine residence there. At the time a slough ran through the city and near the WILLIAMS house there was a bridge. There were three WILLIAMS families in Santa Rosa at the time and to distinguish Mr. J. M. WILLIAMS from the others he was known as "Bridge" WILLIAMS on account of the fact that he resided near the bridge. The deceased was a member of Santa Rosa Lodge, F. & A. M. For over half a century the deceased was a Mason, being probably the oldest Mason in the county, The funeral will take place under Masonic auspices on Monday at 1:30 o'clock either from Masonic Hall or the NAGLE residence."

"WILLIAMS--Mrs. Rachel L. WILLIAMS, aged 61y, died at her home on Mendocino St., at an early hour Thursday morning, from the effects of a cancer in the breast. Her death was not unexpected. She had been a great sufferer for several months past from the dread disease which caused her death. She underwent one or two surgical operations, which afforded but temporary relief, the disease being too far advanced. Her sufferings were borne with a patience and rectitude, only possible, in a Christian spirit preparing to take its flight from this world of pain, and enter the presence of its maker. She, with her husband, was among the earliest settlers in Santa Rosa, locating here 25 years ago. She was the mother of a large family of children, now grown to manhood and womanhood, who, with their father, J.M. WILLIAMS, lack not for sympathy in their bereavement.

"WILLIS--Called To Her Reward--Mrs. Maggie BEATTYWILLIS Ends a Life of Earnest Christian Work--The death of Mrs. Maggie BEATTYWILLIS, wife of O.P. WILLIS of this city, who passed away to her eternal rest at an early hour yesterday morning, was a beautiful ending to a beautiful Christian life. With perfect faith in the promises of her Savior and a clear knowledge that the shadow of the death angel's wing was creeping over her, she calmly bade family farewell, sank into sleep, her only regret being that she had left behind her work that she had hoped to finish. For many years Mrs. WILLIS had been the leading spirit in temperance work in this city, and held the position of County President of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union. She was one of the organizers of the Children's Day Home, an institution in which she was always deeply interested, and there are many young girls in this locality to-day who owe their present happiness and good position in life to the aid of the kindly guiding hand of this lovely Christian woman. In speaking of her life work a few days since, Mrs. WILLIS said: "My only regret is that I must leave it unfinished, but I realize that the good work will continue, and the seed sown will become ripened grain. I was but a grain of sand in the glorious realm of high endeavor, and after I am gone someone will take up my share of the work and carry it on to a successful ending." Mrs. WILLIS was born in Kentucky, her family being prominent in the Blue Grass State. Mrs. WILLIS was a daughter of the late Judge H.O. BEATTY and sister of the present Chief Justice W.H. BEATTY of the Supreme Court. She was the mother of Mrs. Edward TADE of San Francisco, Mrs. E.M. LYNN and Misses Alice, Kate and Emiline WILLISof Sacramento.

His father and mother resided at Tubbs' Hotel, Brooklyn. He was an only child.

"WISEMAN--GONE TO HIS REST--Death and Burial of Joseph P. WISEMAN, a Native Son. After an illness of many months, Joseph P. WISEMAN, advertising solicitor of the Record-Union, died at the home of his mother in this city on Saturday morning. Mr. WISEMAN was a native of this city and a son of the Late Joseph WISEMAN. He was 33 years of age. Many years ago he had charge of the advertising department of the Bee, and subsequently was business manger of the San Francisco Post, when his uncle, John F. SHEEHAN, was the publisher of that paper. When the Post changed hands he went to Los Angeles, where he was placed in charge of the advertising department of one of the larger daily papers in that city, and later he filled the same position in San Diego. Returning to Sacramento a few years ago, Mr. WISEMAN became advertising solicitor for the Record-Union, which position he filled up to the time of his death. Deceased was a young man of superior business qualifications, especially in the line of his calling. He had hosts of friends wherever he resided, and the number of inquiries concerning his condition made daily during his illness attested to his popularity in this city. One of the marked traits of his character was his devotion to his widowed mother, to whom he gave all his time not required by his daily duties. Throughout his long illness he was un-complaining, and even when the last hope of recovery had to be abandoned he faced the inevitable without a murmur, and was cheerful to the last. The funeral of Mr. WISEMAN took place yesterday from the Cathedral, whither the body was escorted by the members of Sacramento Parlor, Native Sons of the Golden West, of which he was a member. Besides the members of the order there were present a large number of friends of the deceased and family . Rev. Father GRACE officiated at the services, at the conclusion of which he preached an eloquent and impressive sermon. During the service the choir sang the "Misero," the "Liveria" and "Over the Line." Many beautiful flower pieces were sent by sorrowing friends to decorate the casket and the grave. The members of Sacramento Parlor took charge of the arrangements for the funeral, which were well carried out. The pall-bearers were: D.J. LONG, George LOCKE, M. LAVENSON, R.E. GREER, Theodore G. EILERS, J.J. FITZGERALD and Abraham MOOSE." Source: Sacramento Daily Record-Union, 31 Dec 1894. Transcribed by Betty Loose.
