St. Joseph County

By Judge William H. Cross

In the summer of 1856 we met for the first time subsequent to our parting in Tecumseh in 1830, on the banks of Cosumnes river in Sacra mento county. We remained there in company for several weeks, until he received news from Ann Arbor that caused him to leave California and start for his old home in Michigan. When in Panama he wrote me that he had a pleasant time on the Pacific ocean, and hopod soon to be'* in Michigan. A few weeks later came the news of the foundering of the "Central America" off Cape Hatteras, on board of which he left Aspin wall, and where he found a watery grave. As I look around me here to day and ask for the old veterans, I find very few are with us. I see only Joseph W. Brown, Ezra Blood, William Tilton, Timothy Mitchel, Mrs. Tilton, and Mrs. Blood—all the rest have gone to the other shore, and we are fast approaching it, and will soon p over. We may now say with our friend.
