  • Notes 
    • Enlisted in Taylor's Company, First Mississippi Volunteers, 15 June 1846, with the rank of private. Discharged at the mouth of the Rio Grande due to illness, 21 Aug. 1846. He returned home to Holly Springs, Miss. and was trained as a printer. In 1853 he and John C. Duchow purchased The Columbia Gazette (Tuolumne Co., Calif.) He was elected Sheriff 4 Sept. 1877 and took office 7 Jan. 1878. He retired in favor of his son-in-law five years later. He again stood for office and was reelected 7 Nov. 1892, assuming office 2 Jan. 1893. He died in office 12 Jan. 1898. During his terms of offices, he was also a printer and miner. He was associated with the Union Democrat. During his first term of office his former newspaper partner, John Duchow, who was then running the Tuolumne Independent, opposed his actions as sheriff. The 1892 and 1896 voter rolls describe him as 6'1", dark complexion, brown eyes, and dark hair from THE QUARTERLY Published by the Tuolumne County Historical Society Inc. P.O. Box 695 Sonora, California 95370 THE TWENTY SHERIFFS OF OLD TUOLUMNE By CARLO M. DE FERRARI . . . David F. Baxter, another old pioneer, brought the office back to the Democratic fold by defeating Trout at the election of 1873. He held the office for two terms, and in turn was defeated by Tryon M. "Pre" Yancey in the election of 1877. Yancey had commenced his career in Tuolumne County as a partner of John C. Duchow in the Columbia Gazette, and was by profession a printer. Later he was also associated for many years with the Union Democrat. He retired in favor of his son-in-law, George McQuade, after a stormy tenure in office in which he was bitterly opposed by his former newspaper partner, John C. Duchow, who was now the proprietor of the Tuolumne Independent. Following McQuade's death in 1889, Yancey again began to take an active interest in politics and succeeded once more in winning the office of sheriff at the election of 1892. He was re-elected for four years in 1894, but died in office on January 12, 1898 before the end of his term.
