55818 `OBITUARIES
John Atherton, San Jose accountant
Mercury News Staff Report
When John Atherton contacted bronchitis nine years ago,

a curious thing happened to his longtime habit of smoking cigarettes: He became intolerant to smoke.
He quit his habit - cold turkey - and he fought through the withdrawal from his addiction.
Mr. Atherton lived nine more years before complications related to emphysema and then peritonitis caused his death at age 65.
That was curious, too, because those nine years were a bonus to a certified public accountant who hadn`t expected to live much past his middle 50s.
`You have to understand that we`re Roman Catholics,` said Mr. Atherton`s wife, Agnes, `and we believe heaven`s a better place. So he said, `If heaven`s better, why do I have to stay here any longer?``
`He was ready to go,` said the Rev. Alfred Kelly, pastor at St. Francis Cabrim Church where Mr. Atherton did plenty of getting ready.
For 24 straight years, seven Atherton children attended the church`s K-8 school. Mr. Atherton served twice as the president of the school board. He helped with bingo nights. Every year he headed the accounting committee for the fund-raising fiesta in May.
Even in recent years, when emphysema restricted him, Mr. Atherton `still came to take care of the books,` said Kelly.
Mr. Atherton also set the professional standard for three of his children who pursued accounting and finance as careers; one is still in high school, one works for the U. S. Postal Service and two are in the U. S. Army.
Mr. Atherton pointed the way for them, too. He was drafted into the Army to serve in the Korean War after growing up in Pendelton, Ore. He met his wife while both were students at the University of Portland, that Oregon city`s Catholic school.
Upon receiving CPA certification in 1961, he headed for San Jose and a job with the accounting company Wood, Nye & Co. When that old-line firm merged with a national company, Mr. Atherton decided to set up his own company.
Mostly he worked without a partner as a sole practitioner, and his life centered on his family and his 60-plus-hour weeks.
It was a sedentary and stressful existence, managing other people`s businesses, said Agnes Atherton.
Mr. Atherton did serve his profession. He led the tax committee of the 1,900-member San Jose Chapter of the Society of Certified Public Accountants. He was also a member of the state society`s tax committee. He attached particular emphasis on his membership on the local ethics committee.
Principles were important to him, said his wife. `Honesty was probably his outstanding characteristic.` As a tax specialist, he `enjoyed the puzzles of helping clients work through tax law.`
`There was never a day he didn`t enjoy going to work,` she said.
Allen Williams, a fellow CPA sole practitioner, identified with his friend. `He was one of the older ones like me,` Williams said.
`John was highly respected.`
When his health problems began to mount last winter, Mr. Atherton finally sold his practice to Walter Speidel at the end of the year.
He died April 25 in a San Jose hospital.`

ATHERTON, Wilbur Henry (I658)
 
55821 Richard Atherton was born 1843. He was given his Mother's surname. His birth Certificate shows no Father's name.
We know that his Father was James Southworth from a corrected Church record made later. Richard Atherton had a child with Mary Hewitt in 1865. She was named Alice Hewitt
Richard Atherton and Mary Hewitt married in 1867. The record shows that Richard Atherton married Mary Hewitt but the entry for his father is given as James Southworth.
Their second child Esther Atherton was born in July 1867
They later had another child Thomas in 1870 (no surname given in the entry). My GG.
Then, almost 20 years later in 1881, the Curate (Jno.Wood) puts an entry into their marriage record saying that Richard Atherton should really have been Richard Atherton Southworth since his father was James Southworth. RAS had become Churchwarden at St. Matthews which may have provided the opportunity and influence to correct the record.
