      Obituary Woodland Democrat, Aug 18, 1922
      Pioneer Rancher To Be Laid to Rest Here Sunday

      Services for Lucius B. Spurgeon, who died at Arbuckle yesterday afternoon and who was the father of Mrs. P.T. Foster of Zamora, will be held at the home of J.D. Harling, at the corner of College and Cross streets here Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. The interment will be in the Woodland cemetery.

      Spurgeon suffered a paralytic stroke last July 31. He was driving an automobile near Sacramento at the time, but escaped injuries despite the loss of control of the machine. Deceased was 68 years of age, a native of El Dorado county. He had farmed in Yolo and Colusa counties. For twenty years he was located in the Madison district, but of late has been residing in retirement near Winters.

      Spurgeon leaves a wife, the former Mary B. Ely, whom he married in 1875, and one son and a daughter, James F. Spurgeon of Roseville and Mrs. Mary Ellen Foster of Zamora. Lucius B. Spurgeon, another son, died at Fort George Wright, Washington, in 1918, after he had taken up the colors of Uncle Sam.

      Mrs. California Campbell of San Francisco is the only living sister of the deceased.

      There are nine surviving grand-children: Lucius S., John T., Percy T., Ima Mae, and Lovus B. Foster, all of Zamora: and Faris Wayne Spurgeon of San Francisco. The latter is the son of Lucius Spurgeon, deceased service man. [2, 5]
