Isaacs, Joseph N.
Anderson Valley News, Saturday, Feb. 19, 1910


Joseph N. Isaacs, business manager of the Shasta County Democratic Register, was found dead after midnight Wednesday, in Redding, on the porch of Dr. Bryant.

We take, in part, from the Courier-Free Press, the following:

The decedent was born in the old town of Shasta, April 5, 1867, and has lived in this county all his life. He leaves a widow, Mrs. Fonnie Isaacs, and two little girls, Alice aged 3 years and Josephine aged 9 months. His brother is Attorney James E. Isaacs of Redding.

While the deceased was not of a robust physique, he was not known by friends to have been in such a delicate state as the autopsy has proven. According to his devoted wife, he had complained several times recently of heart weakness and late Wednesday night became so faint that he sought medical aid. Mrs. Isaacs suggested his remaining in the house and bringing in the doctor, but he insisted on going out, and this exertion probably hastened the death. The deceased had reached Dr. Bryant's porch and fell there from the attack, and in his struggles he aroused the medico, who thinking there was an intruder around, phoned for the police, and officers Pemberton and Henry Seng hurried to the house, there to find the dead body. It was not recognized until placed in the morgue.

The deceased newspaper man did not belong to any fraternal order. The burial has been arranged to take place on Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, from the Methodist church and the interment will be in the Redding cemetery, Rev. W. P. Rankin officiating.
