Swiss-American pioneer. Extravagant and dishonest; he was so deeply in debt in his home location that he left his wife and five children to move to the U.S. Sutter joined the numbers who traveled west in search of their fortune. He made a claim on a location known as Sutter's Mill that became famous when he struck gold on 1/28/1848. His strike caused a human stampede to the west in search of riches, the historic "gold fever."
Sutter was unable to hold on to his riches for long, always financially incompetent and in a muddle of promotion and intrigue. His family joined him after 16 years of separation.
He died: June 18, 1880 in Washington, D. C.
