Deputy Collector James Anderson and Inspector William Goodell drowned in Washington state during a severe flood that swept the Port Angeles Customs House from its foundation and into the Strait of Juan De Fuca.

The Customs House was located at the foot of a creek. A log jam upriver broke free during a storm, causing the flood waters to sweep into the valley.
