In Prescott, Sept. 23d, 1876, at the residence of Gideon Brooke, his former partner, of consumption, Jacob Linn, aged about 50 years.
Deceased was a native of Pennsylvania, but emigrated from Ohio to California in 1850. He was one of the noted Walker party of 26 men who were the Pioneers of this part of Arizona. It is remarked, as a singular fact, that though the members of the Walker party were exposed as much or more to Indian attack, while mining, prospecting and packing in this country during the dark days than any other equal number of men in the county, yet not a single one of them was ever killed by Indians. Mr. Linn, we understand, is the second one who has died from any cause, a Mr. French having died in Santa Fe some two years ago. They arrived on Lynx creek in May, 1863.
Transcriber's note: Mr. Linn is buried in an unmarked grave at the Citizens Cemetery in Prescott, Arizona.
