John Robb Passes Away
(he died in Washington State in 1911)

Another pioneer has answered the call to his last reward.  At two-o'clock
p.m. last Thursday February 9th, JOHN ROBB of Norman departed this life
full of years and cheered by the happy thought that his life's work has
been satisfactory.  The deceased passed away at the home of his brother,
ROBERT ROBB at Norman where the funeral services were conducted at 12:30
last Sunday by the Rev. N.E. Wood of the M.E. Church of Stanwood, at the
home of ROBERT ROBB.  The last services were attended by a large concourse
of friends of the deceased at the grave, who in face of inclement weather
gathered from Everett, Snohomish, Arlington and all the portions of the
Stillaguamish Valley to pay respects to a life-long friend, neighbor and
pioneer of Snohmish County.  The floral offerings were profuse and attested
the high esteem in which the deceased was held by all who knew him.  Burial
services were held at the grave in the Florence Cemetery where the remains
were laid to rest in the shadow of the forest which always held for the
deceased in life many happy reflections of the early pioneer days when he
first settled on his farm when but one other white man lived on the river
above him.

The deceased was born in the County of Armagh, Ireland, January 28th, 1837
and at the time of his death seventy-four years of age and twelve days old.
When four years of age he moved with his parents to Perth County, Ontario
which was then a wilderness and there resided until he reached manhood's
estate.  When he heard of the gold fields of the Fraser River and departed
thence in search of gold as many others did at the time.  This journey was
made by way of Isthmus of Panama to San Francisco and not receiving much
encouragement on the gold output on the Fraser at the time, he came to
Puget Sound where  he remained for the most part until his death.  In 1874
he formed a partnership with Robert Hamell in logging on the Snohmish
River.  In 1876 he took up the present land near Norman which was his home
at the time of his death.  Frequently he encountered difficulties
incidental to pioneer life when all freight and passenger travel was done
by boat and barges up and down the river in these trying times the dehoused
all adversities with courage and fortitude which is characteristic of the
early settlers.

The deceased was never married and leaves to mourn his loss, his brother
ROBERT ROBB of Norman who remained at his bedside till the end ISAIAH ROBB
of Palmerston, Ontario and a sister ISABELLE ROWE of Verden Manitoba.  He
was a man of high character with an intense honesty of purpose and yielded
not to any manner of transaction that savored of ill treatment or injustice
to his fellow-man.  He had a forbearance for those who sought to injure him
by word or deed and always lent a helping hand to those who needed
assistance in the battle of life.  His demise will cause a vacant place in
his circle of friends that can't be filled.  His stories of the early
settlers will be heard no more, but his deeds will live in the hearts of
his friends as an echo from the other shore.

Carson City Morning Appeal; October 15, 1902; 312:

by Himself Years Ago.

 Samuel Baker, whose death is elsewhere recorded in this paper, was born in
Belfast, Ireland, December 1, 1829.  He came to America, a sailor boy, at the
age of fifteen, landing in New York, and was soon among the most ardent
lovers and faithful citizens of the great republic.  As a mariner he sailed
in American ships across the Atlantic ocean, visiting the principal seaports
of Europe and America, and was in the war with Mexico.  He was on the U. S.
transport ship Monterey, of Vera Cruz, at the time of the siege, this was in

November 8, 1848, he sailed from New York for California on the U. S.
transport ship Iowa, in company with eight other transport ships, having 350
U. S. troops on board under command of General Bennet F. Riley, the first
provisional Governor of California, under the acquisition of that territory
by the United States, his flag ship and head quarters being the Iowa, with
himself and the regimental band on board.  The fleet make the voyage
propitiously by way of Cape Horn, touching at Rio Janeiro and Valparaiso, and
arriving at San Francisco, March 14, 1849.

Subsequently Baker sailed in coasting service for a short time between San
Francisco and Santa Cruz, then struck out for the California gold diggings up
the Sacramento river, reaching Sutters Fort in June of that memorable year.
He traveled up to Smiths' Bar on the American river, just below Doten's Bar,
where he met with merely average mining success, and for about twenty years
he was backward and forward between the mining region and salt water.  He
visited Oregon in 1851 and for about a year after he got back was employed as
overseer at the Califorina (sic) State prison at San Quentin.

In July 1860, he came to Nevada from Benecia as wagon master with a train of
thirty-five U. S. government wagons, loaded with supplies for Fort Churchill.
 Subsequently he went with the California column, 3500 soldiers to Arizona,
where he was post wagon master at Tuscon, for several months.  For about four
years he rode pony express between Fort Yuma and San Diego, across desert
wastes and among hostle Indians and on his return to California took a wagon
train out to Star City, Humboldt county, in this State, for Col. C. F.
Snowden and Majoy Kyle.

In August 1863, Baker came to the Comstock lode, and soon got into regular
employment as brakeman at the hoisting works of the Gould & curry, Savage,
Yellow Jacket and other leading mines, following this occupation for about
ten years.  Then by way of variety, he turned his attention to the police
department and became city jailer at Virginia.

At an early hour in the morning of August 14, 1872, he, with others of the
police, detected a burglar on the roof of a C street saloon and in trying to
climb up an awning post after the fellow, Baker accidentally fell, striking
heavily on his shoulders and back.  Partial paralysis was the result
seriously affecting his limbs and lower part of the body; and so contimuing
to te(sic) time of his death.

He recovered sufficiently in about a year after his accident to serve as
watchman in the U. S. Mint Carson, for two or three years, and subsequently
kept a small cigar and variety store.

He married at Benecia in 1858 and leaves a son, formerly yard master on the
S. P. R. R. at Wadsworth, and a daughter, married at Butte, Mont, also five
grandchildren, all born in Carson City.

His last desire was that he should be buried under the auspices of the old
Pacific Coast Pioneers; and Native Sons of the Golden West.

The foregoing biographical obituary sketch was written from his own
dictation, heading and all, about eight years ago, at the earnest request of
old Sam himself, who evidently felt that his day of dissolution was not far
away, and wished to leave himself satisfactorily recorded.  He died with that
continued happy assurance and his surviving relatives may also be happily
assured that his last days ended amid homelike surroundings, peacefully and
