McNEIL – In Tomales, June 3rd, Robert McNeil, aged about 65 years.
Thursday, June 14, 1877
ROBERT McNEIL an old resident of Marin County, died here on June 3rd, after a short illness. He was in early days a tenant for a number of years on S. P. Taylor’s Ranch, on Tomales Bay, where he was widely known for his hospitality. He died in rather limited circumstances, and a coffin was ordered at the expense of the county, which arrived on Monday. But it was so poor that the people were indignant, and would not suffer it to be used. Mssrs. King and Brady raised $40 by subscription, to get a decent one, and the county box was returned to the Coroner.
