Within the last two weeks the peo

Interesting Facts in Connection With tb Ua

Interesting discoveries of lost heirs
hare just been made in the unclaimed
bank deposit cases. The Public Ad
ministrator, Attorney Oscar D. Shuck,
and the legal "representatives of the
various San Francisco savings banks,
where $500,000 are unclaimed, have
lately settled with a number of the
heirs of depositors, but there are sev
eral hundred unclaimed deposits still
in the banks, says the San Francisco
One of the most remarkable of the
long list of abandoned deposits is that
of Jeremiah Pendeigast, to whose
credit there are $12,000 at the Hiber
nia Bank! His heirs are in Ireland.
Very little is known of Pendergast,
save that he was never a resident of
San Francisco, though he was there
for a short time about 1SG8, and prob
ably as late as 18T6. These facts are
known because the Empire Hotel,
which he gave as his residence, was
opened in 186S and closed in 187C.
For many years there has been a
search for Pendergast or his heirs, aud
Attorney Shuck has just located the
heirs in Ireland, and has learned that
the depositor was burned to death in

In the remarkable case of Henry C.
Benn, who left $2,400in the Hibernia
Bank many years go, there is no clue
whatever. It is known that he once
lived at the corner of Kearney and
Jackson streets, but further than this
there have been no tidings. The mon
ey awaits the coming of the owner.
At the same bank there is a deposit
of $1,600 in the name of William E.
Crosten, who was a sailmaker in San
Francisco in 18C8. Shortly thereafter
he quietly left the city, and has never
been heard from, though there are
several persons there who know him
well and worked with him at Craw
ford's sail loft. If the depositor, who
was born in Norway, is still 'living, he
is seventy two years of age. A smrch
