Annie Isabella Gunn Wemple
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 15, 1852
Nova Scotia, Canada
Death: 1900
San Francisco
San Francisco County
California, USA

IMPORTANT NOTES:
a) She appears to have used both of her given names: "Annie" (AKA Ann, Annie, Anne, Anna) and "Isabella" (AKA Isabella, Isabell, Isabelle), more or less, interchangeably.

b) The records are in conflict: some sources say born in Canada (and that she immigrated to the USA in 1861), others state that she was born in: Woonsocket, Providence Co., RI.

c) The CENSUS records (if correctly attributed) state:

Father = Hugh Gunn, b.1815 Scotland, d.???? (probably) CA.
Mother = Elizabeth R. [Surname?], b.1819 Scotland, d.???? (probably) CA.

Both were (probably) buried in San Francisco, San Francisco Co., CA. The exact location(s) is(are) unknown as of this writing... (perhaps, lost to time - due to the S.F. earthquake and fire - and the physical loss of all burial records from many S.F. cemeteries).

d) She, her mother & father, and siblings were living in MA. around 1870. The 1870 Census record states that she and all of her siblings were born in Canada.

e) The 1880 Census places: her parents, herself, brother Hugh Jr., and sister Jessie in San Francisco, CA.

f) By the time of the Census of 1900, she, her now-elderly parents, sister Christina, sister Jessie, brother-in-law Emory O Tuttle, with niece and nephew (Isabelle R Tuttle and Howard E Tuttle) are living in Alameda Twp., Precinct 2 of Alameda, Alameda Co., CA. (the other side of S.F. Bay).
