|Dec. 17, 1909: Henry E. Christopher returns to Fresno after a 10-year absence in which he was declared dead and his property was distributed to his heirs. “He is in the best of physical health and is apparently perfectly rational,” The Times says. “According to old acquaintances, except for a few gray hairs, he looks just the same as before he went away.”|
