Garrod, Sophia Ann
5/1847 - 1926
Interred: September 10, 1926
Plot: 59 12 North side


Native of England.

Note: According to Madronia Cemetery records, her date of birth was "May 1847", not March 1847. Death certificate lists March.


The ranch's success can be attributed to the wisdom passed down from one generation to the next, starting with David and Sophia Garrod.

The couple immigrated to Campbell in 1892 from East Anglia in England with their three children, including eldest son Ralph Vincent, or R.V., who was 12 then. A year later, they bought 66 acres in Saratoga's hills for $4,200.

Teachers by profession, the couple moved to California so that David could live out his final years. He had been given only three years to live after being diagnosed in England with an "incurable" liver disease.

Farm life must have provided the cure, as David went on to outlive Sophia and her brother, Ralph Creffield, who arrived in Saratoga in 1885 to try his hand at dairy farming. David passed away in 1936 at the age of 89.



Sophia Ann Garrod died of a multitude of diseases, including myocarditis and arteriosclerosis at the age of 78.
