Thanks to Barbara Andresen for sending this in!

From ROMAN CITIZEN newspaper, Rome, Oneida County, New York, Friday, January 6, 1865

EVANS - GRIFFITH EVANS, a man about 60 years old, residing below Stanwix village, was found dead, lying face downward, in a small stream flowing just beyond that village, on Friday morning last. (December 30, 1864)  He left the Hotel at Stanwix, and started for home about 9 o'clock on the evening before, being somewhat inebriated.  It is supposed by some that he fell into the stream and was drowned, although this would hardly seem creditable as the water was low -- not being enough to cover his face.  Others conjecture that being unable, in his intoxicated state, to regain his footing, he laid in the stream and perished from cold.  Deceased was a farmer.  He leaves a wife and family.  (RCJan06/1865)

STEVENS - The remains of EDWARD G. STEVENS, who was killed by a band of Apache Indians, near Sonora, Arizona Territory, on the 29th day of December, 1863, as noticed by us in March 1864, arrived in Rome, NY, on Thursday morning, and were buried on Friday afternoon. (December 30, 1864)  Mr. William Stevens, brother of deceased, left San Francisco on the 13th of March, and was engaged from that time until August 29th, in securing the remains and bringing them back to that city.  He then started for home by way of the Isthmus, and arrived in this village (Rome, NY) on the day above named.  Edward G. Stevens was 35 years and 4 months old at the time of his death.  He had been in the employ of the Overland Mail Company, as agent at Fort Yuma, and held other important positions of trust.  He was a man of remarkable energy and business capacity, and was well and favorably known throughout California.  His untimely death was deeply regretted.  (RCJan06/1865)
