The deceased was a son of the late Charles and Helen Bosworth and a brother of Mrs. Nellie E. Dormody, of this city. He was born at the family home on Clark street now owned by Thomas Frazer, and attended the Placerville public school and the Placerville Academy.

As a young man he was employed by the J & J Blair Lumber Company, subsequently being also employed in mining. In this latter field he was a member of the crew which put through what is now known as "the big cut" on the road between Placerville and Coon Hollow.

Subsequently he was employed by Placerville water system when it was in private ownership and continued in that service when the city acquired the system. Years ago when, at the age of 64 years, he was helping to lay new pipeline on Broadway, he suffered a sunstroke from which he never fully recovered.
