Birth: 1820, Scotland
Death: Dec. 23, 1884

Of good Scotch descent, Mr. Tannahill was born in the "Land o' Cakes, " in July 1824. As early as 1850, he found himself mining on Curtis' Creek, which pursuit he followed for a short time, going afterwards to Stockton, but again returning in the Fall of '50, and started a store at what is now Groveland, but which at that time was called Garrote. Continuing assiduously in that business, he has ever since maintained agreeable business relations with the inhabitants of that section. Until a few years since, he had also conducted certain mining operations. Married, Christmas, 1859, Miss May A. Dexter, formerly of Providence, Rhode Island. Two Children: James Alexander, and Cordelia Agnes. [History of Tuolumne County, 1888]

Submitted in appreciation to Barbara Pargament.
