Harry was the son of an immigrant father, Thomas Saulsbury. He immigrated to the United States, a single man of 18, in about 1848 from Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England. Burton upon Trent, also known as Burton-on-Trent or simply Burton, is a town straddling the River Trent in the east of Staffordshire, England. When he was about 29 years old he married Isabel Elizabeth Randall in California. His was an early Pioneer family to the central Pacific coast of California.

In the year 1900 federal census Harry was living at home with his parents, and working as a farm laborer. He married Lora May Stowell in Santa Barbara Co. on 25 DEC 1906. From this union there was no children. The 1920 census revealed that Harry owned his home on Chapel St. in Santa Maria, California, free of any mortgage. He was a plumber in a plumbing shop, and his wife Lora was a nurse in a doctor's office. The 1930 census proved that he still owned his home on Chapel Street, and had $7,000.00 in assets and had a radio. Harry was still working at the Plumbing shop and Lora was now a Technician in a Clinic. In the 1940 census we find that his home on Chapel Street was now only worth $6,500 and they were both retired. Lora's brother, Roy Stowell, and her nephew, Arthur Stowell was living with them. Harry lived all of his life in Santa Maria California. On June 26, 1941, death claimed Harry R.Saulsbury, and he was laid to rest at in the Santa Maria Cemetery. (Research and bio by Audrey DeCamp Hoffman)
