Thanks to Judie and "diskoverit" for checking for obituaries for Daniel Charles Christen. I wonder how far each of you checked. Lannie Hartman found Daniel's death certificate on Ancestry.com, the death index for Americans dying abroad (dated 18 Jan. 1826). It shows his final moments as dying of "apoplexy" while hunting. He was working for "Cananea Cons Copper Co." His wife Pearl was notified of his death via telegraph on the following day (13 Dec. 1825)-- strangely, addressed to "c/o Holy Cross Hospital, Salt Lake, Utah". His name is given as "Charles Christen".
Anyway, as I asked, I wonder how much later after Dec. 12 the newspapers were checked-- while Pearl was notified the 13th, the report to the government did not go in until January 18th, 1926. Thanks in advance for any further checking.
