Major Albert Wilson Bee died.

November 21, 1863 Mountain Democrat
The sad intelligence reached us that Major A W Bee, a pioneer of Placerville, had died in Austin, NT, on Sunday morning last. Major Bee settled in this place early in 1849 , as always, manifested a deep interest in the welfare of our city. He was liberal, enterprising and successful in business, honorable in his dealings, correct in his deportment, and courteous in manner. He was an estimable citizen, a good neighbor, and an indulgent husband and father. In connection with his brother, Col. F. A. Bee, he labored zealously to construct the overland telegraph and his name and that of his brother, will be forever memorialized with that grand enterprise. At the time of this death he was largely and profitably engaged in mining at Reese River and owned some of the best claims, in that rich region. He leaves a wife and children in San Francisco and a large circle of friends in this county to mourn his loss.
