Placer County Republican (Auburn), Wednesday, 2-6-1889
V. V. Mann, who died in Auburn on Monday morning, the 4th inst., was born in Hart County, Kentucky, November 24, 1827. When a young man, he learned the trade of a wagon-maker and for some years he worked at that business in Missouri and in Quincy, Illinois. He left the latter place for California on the 1st of April in 1850 and arrived in Placerville, El Dorado County, in August of the same year. There he remained mining for just twelve months and then moved to Sacramento County where for a time he kept a hotel and toll bridge. Between 1851 and 1864, he lived most of the time in Sacramento and Calaveras counties, but for a short time he was engaged in mining on the Feather River, and he also had a short residence in Grass Valley. In 1855 he was married to Miss Sarah A. Ray at Mokelumne Hill. Mrs. Mann died in 1862 at San Andreas.
Mr. Mann came to Auburn in 1864 and has resided here continuously ever since. For many years, he was engaged in the furniture business alone and as a partner with G. C. Coker. In 1873 he was a member of the Board of Supervisors and in 1882 he was elected County Treasurer on the Democratic ticket. He held the latter office two terms, having been re-elected in 1884.
It would have been a difficult matter to find a man in this county who was better known or who had more friends than V. V. Mann. He was genial, good-hearted, and particularly popular with the young men. He was an old member of the IOOF and for several terms the Treasurer of Auburn Lodge No. 7. He also belonged to the Red Men and carried an insurance of $3,000 in the Chosen Friends.
Last year he retired from active business and fell ill with what was thought to be neuralgia. In the latter part of August, he went to San Francisco for treatment, but his health did not improve. Two or three months ago, the doctors discovered that he was suffering from a cancer in the face. An operation was performed without any good result, and about three weeks ago he came home to die. He passed away easily and peacefully on Monday morning. His funeral took place at 2 o'clock today from Freeman's Hotel in charge of the Odd Fellows, Rev. John Chisholm acting as chaplain, and his remains were laid at rest in the Odd Fellows Cemetery. [Contributed by Brenda Wiesner; March 2010]
