At the age of 13 he was baptized by his father and became a member of the Cedar street Baptist church in this city, later joining the First Baptist church, of which he was a deacon, and being ever an ardent and loving follower and upholder of his faith. He was a member of the First Baptist Choral Association, the I.O.O.F. lodge and the United Order of Golden Cross. The love and sympathy expressed by the people with whom he had always lived are testimonials to a life lived by "a man of God." He leaves in Rockland a wife, Almeda A. Kalloch, and two daughters, Mabel T., and Mrs. Edith K. Pearson, the latter living in Weymouth, Mass. The funeral yesterday afternoon was marked by a large attendance of neighbors and members of the church. The bearers were A. B. Butler and Vesper A. Leach, fellow deacons, S. P. Dunton and Livingston A. Gray. Rev. Mr. Pratt, pastor of the church, in feeling and appropriate remarks, paid merited tribute to the sterling character of the deceased brother, so long and so faithfully identified with the life of the church. The interment was in the family lot at Seaview cemetery. (The Courier-Gazette, Rockland, Maine). (Photo page).

He is survived by his wife, two sisters, Mrs. Alex Van Wyck and Miss Carrie Kalloch and a brother, L. M. Kalloch, of San Francisco. The body will arrive in the city to-day for burial.

Kalloch, Henry Franklin, A long and useful life came to a close Feb. 10,  in the death of this town's "grand old man," Deacon Henry F. Kalloch, at the age of 94. Mr. Kalloch was the son of the late Alexander and Mary Ann Kalloch and a life long resident of St. George. Until the past few years he remained active in the affairs of the town in general, but being deprived of his hearing, was obliged to withdraw from real activity, yet at heart kept up the usual interest in everything and everybody --young and old. He was blessed with soundness of mind for one so advanced in years, and possessed the same cheerful disposition so much admired by those who knew him all through the long span of life. He was a member of the Seaside Baptist Church for 71 years, serving as deacon for over 60 years, and as chairman of the ministerial committee for 40 years. He had also given many years of service as church clerk and treasurer, and was superintendent of the Sunday School for 21 years. The religion in his heart was visible in his life. Thus the church has lost a devout and valued member. The entire community honored and respected his Christian living. Quoting William Cullen Bryant in "Thanatopsis" (a Greek word meaning a view of death), Mr. Kalloch so lived "that when the summons came, sustained and soothed by an unfaltering trust, he approached his grave like one who wraps the drapery of his couch about him and lies down 'o pleasant dreams." Deceased was a veteran member of Eureka Lodge F.A.M. having joined the organization 63 years ago. He was a charter member and a past patron of Naomi Chapter, O.E.S. He served in the State Legislature several years ago, and was treasurer of the town of Saint George for 19 years. He was engaged in the grocery business in this community, the latter years of his life and in that store many will miss his smile and genial handclasp. His was a life of true and willing service whenever and wherever the call demanded attention. his fellowship will be sadly missed in this community and in various parts of Knox County, where he made a host of friends through his friendly spirit, especially in Fort Fairfield where he often visited his son Dr. Herbert Kalloch. His life was an inspiration --his memory a benediction. Funeral services were held Feb. 14 at the late residence. Rev. Newell J. Smith, pastor of the local church, offered prayer and benediction, and Rev. E. Miller, former pastor here and a close friend of the deceased for nearly 40 years, made remarks. There were many beautiful floral tributes as silent testimony of the love and esteem in which Mr. Kalloch was held. The immediate relatives who survived are a son Dr. Herbert F. Kalloch of Fort Fairfield; a daughter Mrs. Nannie Allen of this place; two grandsons, Colby Kalloch of Larchmont, N. Y. and Henry K. Allen of this place; three great-granddaughters, Nancy L. Kalloch, Charlene and Elaine Allen; two nieces Mrs. Grace M. Carey and Mrs. Gladys Anderson, both of Marblehead, Mass.; two nephews, Henry K. Mansfield of Lynn, Mass., and Arthur Kalloch of Thomaston; besides several distant relatives. Burial was in the family lot in Seaside Cemetery. The bearers were: Manfred Humphrey, Joseph Simmons, David Sivewright and Ernest Rawley.

Kalloch, Isaac S., Last Friday in Sehome died I. S. KALLOCH, after a long struggle for life with a stubborn disease. Only a few weeks ago it was thought that he had stopped the inroads of the destroyer, but the ailment was too deep seated for medicines to reach, and carried the sufferer away. Nearly everybody on the Pacific coast is familiar with the career of Dr. KALLOCH to a certain degree. We believe he was originally from Maine, at any rate, he was one of the most popular and eloquent preachers who ever filled a pulpit on these shores, and his church in San Francisco, the Tabernacle, was always crowded while he officiated there. He was the idol of the laboring classes in that city, and about seven or eight years ago was elected mayor by an overwhelming majority. He was also an able editor, and for some time ran a paper in San Francisco which circulated extensively. His removal to Sehome about three years ago has always been something of a mystery, though he came with the B. B. & B. C. railway agitation, and it is said, invested everything in that enterprise. He leaves a widow and four children, two sons and two daughters. His son, I. M. KALLOCK (sic), the attorney, is most extensively known, and is a general favorite wherever he goes. (From the "Blaine Journal", 12/15/1887).
We have gleaned the following additional particulars covering the life of the late I.S. Kalloch since our last issue: While Mr. Kalloch was in Kansas he became editor of the Lawrence Tribune and remained in charge of that paper for a brief period, until 1874, when he accepted the pastorate of the Baptist church of Leavenworth, having had under consideration at the same time the offer from that church and from the Lawrence Baptist Church. During his residence in Kansas, he was elected, in 1872, to the State legislature. Mr. Kalloch next removed to San Francisco, and there was elected mayor in 1878, serving until 1882. His last pastorate was over the Metropolitan Temple in San Francisco. Mr. Kalloch received an honorary degree of A.M. from Colby University in 1856, from Madison in 1857, and D.D. from La Grange in 1877. (Name of paper?, 12/10/1887).
Kalloch, Isaac S., The Rev. Isaac S. Kalloch, ex-Mayor of San Francisco, who died on Friday at his residence, New-Whatcom, Washington Territory, attained sudden prominence on Aug. 29, 1879, when he was shot by Charles De Young, the editor and one of the proprietors of the San Francisco Chronicle. Kalloch was at the time the Sand Lotters' candidate for Mayor, and was bitterly opposed by De Young, who threatened that, unless he withdraw from the contest, the Chronicle would expose his career as a minister in the East. Kalloch responded by making a speech in which he slandered De Young's mother. On the following morning De Young met Kalloch near the Metropolitan Hotel and shot him twice, the first bullet entering his breast and the second lodging in his thigh. Kalloch fell and De Young attempted to drive away in this carriage, but was attacked by a party of workingmen, friends of the wounded man, who unmercifully beat him and a police officer who interfered. They would have killed him had not other police officers come to the rescue. He was taken to the Baldwin Hotel, but was removed for safety to a police station, which was soon surrounded by thousands of infuriated men, vowing vengeance. While they were being kept at bay 20,000 more workingmen gathered on the Sand Lots and cried for a leader to direct an attack upon the station house with a view to lynching De Young, and subsequently upon the Chronicle Building. Their leaders counseled moderation, however, and a message from Kalloch to the same effect having been read to them the men dispersed. Kalloch recovered and was elected Mayor. De Young was kept in confinement for some time, and being liberated on bail, paid a short visit to Mexico. In the Spring of the following year an anonymous pamphlet was circulated in San Francisco, describing discreditable events in Mayor Kalloch's early career, and it's authorship was generally credited to De Young, who was known to have traveled in the East for the purpose of giving the subject a personal investigation. On the evening of April 23, 1880, the Rev. I. M. Kalloch, a son of the Mayor, aged 26, entered the Chronicle office and fired four times at De Young, one of the bullets striking him in the mouth and penetrating the base of the brain, causing almost instant death. Young Kalloch was at once arrested, and in March of the year following was tried, but acquitted of the charge of murder. He acknowledged that his belief that De Young was the author of the pamphlet was the instigating cause of his crime. The Rev. I. S. Kalloch was born in Rockland, Me., where his father was a clergyman, in 1832. After a decidedly wild career as a theological student, during which he suffered expulsion, but was reinstated out of respect to his aged father, he entered the ministry at Rockland, but was finally obliged to give up his church and leave the town on account of scandalous charges. He subsequently became the very popular Pastor of the Temple Society in Boston, but his habits interfered with his usefulness, and after a very sensational trial in a criminal court, he escaped conviction of a felony of the nominal order, through the disagreement of the jury. He subsequently went to Kansas, and would have resumed preaching there had not his record been overhauled. This caused his departure for San Francisco, where he joined the Kearney movement, and became the standard bearer of the Sand Lot gang. (The New York Times, Dec. 12, 1887).

Kalloch, Julia E. (Perry), The funeral of Mrs. Julia Kalloch took place from her late residence at Ingraham's Hill Monday evening of last week. Her old friend and pastor, Rev. W. O. Holman, officiated. The singing was by the choir of the Bay View Sunday School. The attendance was large and the floral tributes numerous and appropriate. Mrs. Kalloch had been an almost continuous resident of the neighborhood and was esteemed and loved by all who knew her. She was a woman of strong qualities of mind and heart, of a retiring disposition, warm affections, generous sentiments, self sacrificing and faithful in the discharge of life's duties; patient in the endurance of its various ills, a tender mother, an affectionate sister, a kindly neighbor and a sincere and consistent Christian. Her last sickness was long and distressing, but borne with a grace and fortitude seldom witnessed. As she drew near her end, she looked calmly across the river and longed to pass over. Not a fear seemed to disturb her, not a murmur escaped her. She died almost without a struggle. She leaves two daughters, Mrs. Joseph D. Thurston of Union and Miss Helen Kalloch long connected with this office, and one brother E. Mont Perry of this city, all of whom have the sympathy of the community in their bereavement.

COOKTOWN, September 2 - Dying of snake bite alone in his bush camp 50 miles from Cooktown, a miner endeavored in his last moments to give legal effect to his wish that his property should go to the man who had befriended him. On a page of newspaper he wrote his will with a piece of charcoal. When his friend came to visit him several days later he found the maker of this strange will dead in his camp. The man was Oley J. Kalloch, a native of the United States, who had been living in the district for 10 years. The will was found by Constable H. Costello when searching a hut after Kalloch had been found dead by Neil Jenkins, another miner, who had befriended him for the last eight years. Last Monday Jenkins rode from Mt. Romeo to Kalloch's camp at Mount Ann, in the Bloomfleld district to ascertain why Kalloch had not visited him on the previous Friday. Kalloch had visited Jenkins each Friday, and had been with him on August 18, promising, when he left, to return on August 25. On arriving at Kalloch's hut on August 28, Jenkins discovered Kalloch's body under the bunk, clad in a khaki shirt. Jenkins returned to Grasstree, 12 miles away, and asked John Doolan, a tin miner, to inform the police at Cooktown of Kalloch's death, which apparently had taken place several days previously. When Constable Costello. accompanied by John Doolan, arrived at Kalloch's camp on August 30, they found that Kalloch's great toe of the right foot had been lanced, presumably following the bite of a snake, a ligature tied round the toe, and a rope ligature placed above the ankle. Two aborigines with the party dug a grave just outside the wall of Kalloch's camp, and the body was buried. Constable Costello being satisfied that there were no auspicious circum- stances. Constable Costello discovered a message written in charcoal on a newspaper on the table Kalloch had used for meals. It read: "Bitten by a big brown snake. About done for. I leave everything to Neilly Jenkins.— Oley J. Kalloch." Doolan recognised the writing as that of Kalloch. A bloodstained pocket knife, freshly sharpened, and Condy's crystals were found. It is believed that Kalloch had treated himself for snake bite. Brown snakes are plentiful in the locality. Kalloch was a fair bushman, and aware of the danger of snake bite. Recently he had removed his camp from Mount Romeo to Mount Ann, to engage in dairying and gardening. He had no neighbors for six miles, and the nearest doctor was 50 miles away, at Cooktown over a difficult trail. (Townsville Daily Bulletin, Monday 4 September 1939, page 4).

Keller, Albert W., VETERAN CAPTAIN DIES AT HOME IN ALAMEDA - Albert W. Keller Had Varied Experience in His
Long Career - Captain Albert W. Keller, one of the oldest navigators on the Pacific Coast, and for many years in the
employment of Pope and Talbot, the San Francisco shipping concern, died at the home of his niece, Mrs. U.R. Grant,
2112 Clement avenue. Keller was one of the famous sea captains of the Pacific Coast, having been around the
world many times and also having been the victim of several wrecks. He was 82 years of age at the time of his
death, 50 of which were spent in the employment of Pope and Talbot. Death came as a gradual decline brought on
by his years. Keller was of old New England stock, his relatives coming from Maine. He himself, was a
native of that state and spent his early life around the coast cities of the state. When a young man he came
west to the then pioneer state of California and secured a berth on one of Pope and Talbot’s ships. His advance
was rapid and in a few years he was made captain of one of the vessels. His history from that time on was one of
constant travel, with several wrecks coming at different periods of his life. He was in command of the King
Philip when she and three other boats were wrecked at the Golden Gate. He and a few others were saved from
the wreckage and Keller continued his career on the seas. A few years later he commanded the Elizabeth
Kimball, which was wrecked off Easter Island. The ship sank and the crew was forced to get ashore as best
they could. Upon arriving on the island they found the marooned crew of another ship which had been cast ashore
in the same way as themselves. These two parties combined and succeeded in making a sloop in the year’s time
they were on the island. Captain Keller’s wife, Laura Keller, was the only woman among the party and she was
forced to dress in men’s garb to keep the natives from killing her. When this sloop was completed, the party set
sail and after a voyage of hardships and privations they at last succeeded in reaching the bay of San Francisco.
All hope had been given up by the relatives of the wrecked crew and their entrance into Golden Gate after a year of
island life, with nothing to eat but mutton and sweet potatoes, was a surprise. Captain Keller’s life continued
to be full of experiences and adventures until he became too old to partake in active service. It was then that
he was made captain of the port by his employers, a position he held until his death. Keller is survived by
three sisters, Emily T. Keller,
Mrs. Helen A. Langston, and Mrs. B.D. Voris; a brother, John F. Keller; and two
nieces, Mrs. U.R. Grant and Mrs. J.D. Van Buren. Funeral services will be held tomorrow afternoon from the
chapel of George W. Murphy under the auspices of the order of Odd Fellows. (Newspaper
