PIONEER WOMAN CALLED
Mrs. A. G. Boggs Came to Napa
Valley Sixty-one Years Ago
Lucy Evans Boggs, relict of the late A. G. Boggs, a member of one of the oldest and most prominent pioneer families of California, passed peacefully to rest at an early hour Monday morning at the home of her daughters, Mrs. Karl Krug and Mrs. Rodney Hudson, on First street in Napa.
Mrs. Boggs had been in failing health for many months and for seven weeks had been confined to her bed. She had not been a sufferer from organic trouble of any kind. She simply lost strength and became weaker and weaker under the weight of advancing years until death came as a blessed relief to one unable longer to carry life's burden.
Mrs. Boggs was born near Lexington, Kentucky, in 1834. She was married to A. G. Boggs in Fulton Missouri, in '56, and immediately after the ceremony started for California via the Isthmus of Panama on the honeymoon trip. The day that Mr. and Mrs. Boggs arrived in San Francisco was the same day that the notorious gambler and murderer, Cora, was hanged by the vigilantes. These stirring times in San Francisco made a vivid impression upon Mrs. Boggs' memory and during later years she frequently spoke of them.
Mrs. Boggs' first home in Napa valley was at the old Governor Boggs ranch near Yountville. Here they resided for ten years before coming to Napa to reside. Mrs. Boggs lived continuously in Napa up to the time of her husband's death, some twenty years ago. Since that time she had made her home with her daughters.
Deceased was a woman of culture, of refinement, of gentleness, of unselfish devotion to the members of her large family and to her hosts of intimate friends. For years a devout member of the Presbyterian church she put into every day life Christian precept and example.
These children, survive her: Mrs. Panthea Hudson, and Mrs. Bertie Krug, of Napa, Mrs. Frances Watkinson, of Hanford, and one son, Henry Boggs. There are these grandchildren: Marshall and Howard Hudson, Albert and Helen Boggs, Thornton Boggs and Jane Krug. There is one great grandchild, Nancy Hudson, of St. Helens, Oregon.óNapa Register.
