An Old-Timer Has Left Us.
Another old-timer of El Dorado has gone, and left us a name to be remembered and honored.  Loriston Hale Lovejoy was a native of Sidney, Maine, whence he came to this State via Panama, on the Steamer Northern Light, in 1853.  After a year or so he came to Northern El Dorado, where he spent the rest of his life.  He died at his home near Cool, where with a loving family around him, he died at the age of ninety-one.
Few of the empire-builders have lived so blameless and useful a life.  The old Lovejoy house, at the junction of the Auburn and Georgetown roads, was his home and place of business for many years.  It was one of the most noted stations on the stage routes of that time.  His home near Cool was later the lovable home of his family.
January 5th, 1849, Mr. Lovejoy was married to Miss Clara Greenleaf at Brownsville, Maine.  In 1862 his wife and two children came from the East, and he bought the family home in which he died.  A wife, three sons, Thatcher T. of New Castle, Fred S. of Rocklin and Steven F. of Cool, and two daughters, Mrs. B. N. Newman and Amanda B. of Cool survive him.  His grandchildren and great grandchildren number about fifteen or twenty well-known people.  They are justly proud of their ancestor.  The Georgetown and Rocklin Masonic Lodges participated in the honors paid to this patriarch of his Order.
