References, Sources, and other notes:
Basic information from Bryant1, who lists him as Chauncy Field. He is probably (but not certainly) the man whose gravesite is on Findagrave. A notice in the Oakland Tribune for Thursday, April 20, 1882, Page 4, has his death on 11 April in Santa Barbara, CA at age 48. His birth and death dates here based on that information.
Death Date: 04/11/1882 Death Place: Santa Barbara, CA Burial Place: Santa Barbara Cemetery, Santa Barbara, CA
