Captain John A. Sutter, Jr.
Though his father built the fort and established an empire called New Helvetia, to his son goes the credit for founding and planning the city he would name after the river on whose banks it would rise: Sacramento. Captain John A. Sutter Jr. was born in 1826 and died in Acapulco, Mexico in 1897.  He served as American Consul for 24 years.  Captain Sutter was re-interred in the Sacramento City Cemetery in 1964 with the consent of his daughter, Anna Sutter Young, who was born in Acapulco September 18, 1888 and died in San Francisco on January 24, 1970.
