Kurutz 197; Rocq 1259 - Doble left Indiana in 1851, crossed the Isthmus, and arrived in San Francisco in early January, 1852. After surviving the Mexican War and 15 years in San Francisco and the gold mines, Doble died of apoplexy apparently caused from falling asleep with a pipe in his mouth; interstingly, he left a library of some 200 volumes, indicating a literacy which is born out by his journal and letters. For a bit of association status, Clyde Arbuckle, who died in January of 1998, was an expert on San Jose history, and the author of "The History of San Jose" and "Santa Clara County Ranchos". - Jeff Harvey L42
