OVERLAND ARRIVALS, APRIL 1877

Following are lists printed in The Oakland Tribune of passengers arriving on the overland trains, which terminated in Oakland. Locations listed after names are places of residence. I have attempted to standardize the punctuation where it clarifies the transcriptions, otherwise the names portions are direct transcriptions of the lists. I have abbreviated the introductory text to each listing.
