Capt. T. O. Newson, Master Mariner, Succumbs in S. F.
After an illness of two months, Captain Thomas O. Newson, who had been connected with the N. W. P. ferries for more than 25 years, died yesterday at the Southern Pacific Hospital in San Francisco.
A native of England, where he was born 51 years ago, Captain Newson came to California 32 years ago and resided in Sausalito most of that time. He is survived by a widow, Mrs. A. E. Newson, a daughter, Miss Grace Newson, and two sisters, Miss Molly and Miss Gertrude Richardes.
He was a member of Mill Valley Lodge, F. & A. M., and the San Rafael Pyramid No. 31, of Sciots.
The remains are at the chapel of R. F. Russell Co. in Mill Valley. Funeral services will be held on Friday afternoon at two o’clock at the Gray Co., San Francisco.
