Anna Clancy is resting next to her husband, George Clancy. Anna was born in Germany and died in Eureka, Humboldt County, CA at age 86. To see their resting place from above, please click on the GPS link below and select for an aerial view.

The 1910 Census taken at Rohnerville, Humboldt County, CA, lists Anna as being 25 years of age, estimated as being born in 1885, married, white, and her husband George is the head of household. Anna is shown as having immigrated from Germany in 1895, both of her parents having been born in Germany, and she can read and write. George's age is listed as 29 and his birth year is estimated at 1881, married, and both of parents are shown as having been born in the United States. There are inconsistencies here with birth years, ages, and previously recorded census records which list that George's father was born in Ireland and not the United States; however, this census does list that his mother was born in Maine (which is consistent with other census years).

The 1920 Census taken at Eureka Ward 3, Eureka, CA, shows George at 42 years of age (birth year estimated at 1878) and "Annie" at 35 (birth year estimated at 1885). They are married and this census records that Annie and both of her parents were born in Germany; both of George's parents were born in Ireland (this is not consistent with previous census records which show that George's mother, Kate Clancy [nee Lysaght] was born in Maine).Other details: husband and wife are both white; Annie immigrated from Germany in 1895; they are renting their home in Eureka; and their daughter Mildred (b. CA) is now 14-years-old and living with her parents in their household of three. Mildred's name and age are consistent with other census years.

The 1940 Census (image available) taken at Ward 3, Eureka, Eureka Judicial Township, CA, shows Anna Clancy at 56-years-old (b. Germany) and her husband George Clancy, head of household, at 52 (b. CA). I believe these ages are in error, as other details listed in this census year line up well. Their daughter Mildred (35) is now married to William Haggis (37), both were born in CA, and the couple is living in the household with George and Anna. Anna was naturalized as a citizen of America, and neither she nor George had listed occupations. It should be noted that George did report that he had income from another source (I suspect it was his farm or their adult children). William Haggis had an occupation of electrician for a lumber company, he worked 40 hours for each of 52 weeks in 1939, and his income was $1,200 for 1939. Mildred Haggis had no listed occupation and no income. The family had lived in the same place at the time of the 1935 census, and they now owned their home at 1037 Buhne Street, Eureka, CA. Their home was valued at $5,000.
Note: many numbers and letters have been written over in darker writing, so some numbers and letters are in question as having been altered from the original writing.
