His Eternal Rest
The Eldorado county (Cal:) Republican of September 27th, contains the following notice of the death of Mr. John Hall, a gentleman who was known by many here, and father of the Hall brothers of Union:
“The death of this old and well known resident occurred at his residence in Placerville last Thursday after a long and very severe illness arising from heart disease. A large crowd of his old friends attended the funeral, the interment being in City Cemetery where children of the deceased were entombed years ago.
Mr. Hall was born in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1824, and was a veteran of the Mexican war. He came to California in 1850 and was engaged in mining ever since. Only a short time before his death, while delirious, he was heard to say something about panning out and striking it rich, which showed that his love for this fascinating pursuit of wealth ceased only with his death.
In his family and his social relations, John Hall was esteemed as a kind and liberal man and a quiet and agreeable neighbor. Much sympathy is expressed for the family who have been bereft of his presence.
HALL:-At Placerville, Cal., September 20, 1888, John Hall, aged 64 years.
