    A Native of Cornwell England

    Death in the Mines Samuel Mugford, Died April 14, 1876, age 41

    On Friday afternoon the miners descending the Garfield shaft of the Keystone mine, at Amador City, discovered a miners candle burning at the 600 foot level, but no miner near. Thinking there was something wrong, they descended the shaft, and found the lifeless body of Samuel Mugford, his head lying across the track of the shaft and his body on the platform of the 700 foot level. The unfortunate man is supposed to fallen about 100 feet, and must have been killed instantly, as his neck was broken. No one was near him at the time, and how the sad accident occurred is unknown. The deceased was a native of Cornwall, England, and leaves a wife and five children in Amador City.
