California Obituaries - 1899 - Captain Sturtevant

United States

The body of Captain Sturtevant, pilot of the launch Paul Jones, has been found near Fort St. Philip, La. From the position and clothing of the body, it is almost certain that he was off duty and asleep when death came, and that the boat was wrecked by an explosion during the night.
