Obituary
     Rufus King, born January, 1817, and died January 4, 1905, aged 87 years. Mr. King was a grand old man, loved by all who knew him. He and his life companion came to this coast some fifteen years ago to visit his daughter, Mrs. M Van Wermer, then living in Eureka, Humboldt county. While there his wife took sick and died. He never seemed to be the same man after his wife's death. After his daughter came to Oakland he came here to live with her only on condition that when he passed away his remains were to be taken to Eureka and laid to rest by the side of his wife. His daughter has kept her word and has gone to Eureka with the remains, where she will arrive today.
     One more kind father, one more old veteran, gone to join the Grand Army of Christians on the other shore. Peace be unto him through all eternity.
Rev. W.R. Bair

MURDER of BERRY KESTERSON of Oakland County CA
Born 13 January 1903 - Died 30 September 1935


Berry Kesterson, an Oakland man, killed in a prospectors feud at American River Canyon, had a premonition of death. This was revealed today by his sister, Mrs. Frank Burghart of 3515 Porter Street. "One day when my husband and I were visiting Berry at his mine he said he would like to be buried in the Canyon if he should die there."

But the prospector's wish will not be fulfilled by relatives who feel his statement might have been prompted by the difficulties of the dangerous trail leading out of the rock-walled canyon. His body will be brought back to Oakland by his older brother, George Kesterson, who l eft on this m ission this morning.

The Oakland prospector, 32 at the time of his death, was the youngest of a family of six, all California residents, though only two live in this city, Mrs. Burghardt said. Kesterson, an interior decorator, had devoted a large part of his time in the last three years to placer mining in the canyon where he was recently killed. He had been quite successful there his sister said.
