About Clark Wright Crocker

From the New York Times, 13 July 1890:

"Clark W. Crocker, brother of H. S. Crocker, the late Charles, and Judge E. B. Crocker, died suddenly in San Francisco on Friday evening of paralysis. About two months ago he was visited by a paralytic stroke, but during the past four weeks, he had so far recoverred as to be able to be at his office daily. Although his death was unexpected at the time it was understood after his illness of two months ago that a second visitation would probably prove fatal. Mr. Crocker was a native of New York and came to California in mining at Big Canon, in El Dorado county. He then came to Sacramento and embarked in business undertakings in partnership with his brother, the late Charles Crocker. For a time he lived in Yolo County, but returned to Sacramento, where he remained until 1875, when he removed to San Francisco, where he has ever since remained. He was a member of the firm of Sisson, Crocker & Company, who were engaged in railroad building, contracting, and furnishing railroad supplies. Clark W. Crocker leaves a wife and five children, one of the latter being the wife of Superior Judge Van Fleet of this county."

Clark W. and Julia Ann (Kimble) Crocker were survived by four daughters and one son:

1. Julia (Crocker) Buckbee, born in Sacramento. Married to Samuel G. Buckbee.

2. Mrs. W. C. Van Fleet.

3. Mrs. Robert McCreary

5. Henry J. Crocker
