BIOGRAPHY: In an autobiography, Dr. Alexander A. Patteson who practiced medicine in Kentucky and Illinois, said of Dr. W. D. Christian: "I returned from the University (of Va.) with the determination to take up the study of medicine. I set about reading under the direction of Dr. William Diuguid Christian, a gentleman thoroughly educated in the science of medicine, as well as in the highest branches of a liberal literary education. I soon learned to honor, revere, respect and love this noble gentleman. Those sentiments toward him have abided and. do remain unchanged and unabated although I have not seen him for more than 42 years. I shall never see him again in this life, for the Master has called him and he had gone to his reward after a well spent life of usefulness." --"William Diuguid of Buckingham County," p 30 BIOGRAPHY: In the "History of Appomattox County" by Featherstone is recorded the following tribute to Dr. William Diuguid Christian: "One of the most beloved citizens of the County, it would be hard to find anyone who could truthfully say a word against this estimable gentleman. One of the best of his profession, he had a very extensive practice and was noted for consideration of the poor, a real benefactor ........ The following is copied from Lynchburg Nevis, March 1901: "North of the Courthouse near Piney Mountain lived William Diuguid Christian, man and doctor, He was close neighbor to Hon. Willis P. Bocock. They were lifelong friends from school days. To some eulogistic remark on Dr. Christian, Col. Bocock said, "I differ with the general public as to the credit Dr. Christian deserved for his good qualities. I believe myself entitled to more credit than the doctor, as the good in me comes by effort and a struggle to overcome the old Adam, while my friend and neighbor, Dr. Christian, was born good and could not help it." BIOGRAPHY: It is said that not least among the good deeds to Dr. Christian's credit was the of equipping of so many students to adorn the profession. Among them were Dr. Charles Davidson, Dr, Alexander A. Patteson and Dr. Bob Patteson. It is easy to see that shoes worn by Dr. Christian were hard to full. --"William Diuguid of Buckingham County," p 31 DEATH: The following obituary of 15 April 1880 signed by T.S.B. (which might have been Thomas S. Bocock) is partially copied as follows: "Able in all branches of the profession, he was a particularly skilled surgeon, it is believed that if he bad earlier removed to a city where he might have enjoyed the advantage of constant observation and practice, he would have taken rank with the foremost surgeon of the State. For a long time he overtaxed his strength and this, it is thought, laid the foundation of the disease which finally terminated his life. For many years he had indication of a diseased condition of the renal organs, which for want of repose and quiet, constantly increased till the Fall of 1878, he became unable to travel. In the summer of 1889, he underwent a painful operation in Lynchburg, which though performed by surgeons of eminent skill and ability, did not, perhaps on account of his advanced age and chronic condition of his disease, prove an entire success. He rallied however for a time, was able to walk about his house and indeed to pay a few visits to particular friends, performing at the same time several surgical operations with great skill and success. But disease had grasped his vitals with an iron hand and would not release its hold. Fe slowly became worse, til about the 3rd or 4th of April, when a violent inflamation seized him, attended with high fever and intense pain, which prostrated him rapidly and hurried him to his death. Thus has passed away one of the most remarkable men of our time and county. He indeed a remarkable man, so active and well informed in mind, so firm and steadfast in principle, so true in friendship, so sympathetic in feeling and so devoted in family effection, he combined a large number of pure and high elements of character than often fall to the lot of man. In the purity of his life and the excellence of his character, in his sage counsels and worthy deeds, he yet lives and speaks to this generation of his countrymen. The powerful influence he exerted on his loving family, on friends, the profession of which he was a member, and the community in which he lived, will not speedily pass away. His voice raised in behalf of the man of violence still at the recollections of his counsel. He upheld the integrity in all transactions, and a policy or intention of a dishonest character will in this community yet shrink back rebuked at the mention of his name... --"Willam Diuguid of Buckingham County, Virginia ," p 30-31 BIOGRAPHY: In an autobiography, Dr. Alexander A.

[7702]

Attended Sutter College and the Stockton Business College, conducted by Messrs. Task & Ramsey. He completed his training under Mr. Ellis of the San Francisco Business College and remained on the home farm until 1897. He then entered the business world, becoming associated with the Old Sutter Canning & Packing Company, and at the time it was sold to the California Fruit Canners' Association he was assistant superintendent of the plant, being also a stockholder and director of the concern. James Clarence Gray bought the Marysville bakery with J. Boulton in 1900 changed the name to Royal Bakery and kept it for fourteen months and then he sold it to go to the mines in Alaska during the Gold Rush there. He entered the service of the Southern Pacific Railroad Company as a roadmasters' clerk at Marysville and was later transferred to Sacramento. He was connected with the maintenance of way department. He wrote letters to Edith Mae Claggett in 1895, 1896, and 1897. His daughter in law found them tied together with a red bow. They all had 2 cent stamps. He was six feet tall and he was a Mason My grandfather established a home in Hammonton a small town >nearby. He died as did all 3 of my aunts before I was born. > Every >year as I was growing up we went to Yuba City and Marysville to decorate >the graves of my Dad's family. We went to Hammonton to visit friend's >of my Dad's family. We swam in the Hammonton town pool and waded in >the river. When I was 10 years old one of my Father's friends let me go >onto a gold dredger and gave me a tour. > Then in the late 1960's or early 1970's (I can look up the date if you >are interested) the Yuba Consolidated Goldfields dredged up the whole >town. The houses were moved to the towns of Linda and Marigold I >believe. You can go there and see only piles and piles of rocks left >over from the dredging. My point is that although the Gold Rush lasted a >fairly short time the search for gold in that area went on for many >years and may still go on even today.
