|Peachy Pringle||Gertrude Sidle Grice Photo|
Thank you so much. What an excellent photo! The stone looks very good for having stood in the Louisiana climate for almost 160 years.
Poor Gertrude, she died so young.
Her father was a carpenter - having something to do with ships.
When she was 17, she married Capt. Warren Ashley Grice. He was a Capt. in the Mexican War and a Capt. of a steamship later. He is thought to be a stray member of the Grice family of Milford Estate, Camden County, NC. It looks like he married Gertrude in 1848 and then left her with her parents in '49 to go to the gold fields. He took a ship to Panama crossed to the other side and took another ship to California. I don't know if he ever saw her again. She died in '52. They appear to have had no children.
In 1856 he married Elizabeth Manning.
That year he operated the big resort hotel in Pass Christian, MS.
He died in 1867 and is buried at Arcola-Roseland Cemetery, Arcola, Tangipahoa, LA.
His second wife Elizabeth and his children moved to New Orleans after his death. Elizabeth Manning Grice and their son Henry Grice, both married descendants of Pres. George Washington's half-brothers.
Alas, poor Gertrude. One hopes she was happy in her 21 years.
Thank you again.
I cannot begin to express my gratitude for the work you have done on the Baham Family Cemetery information and pictures. I am currently working in ancestry.com and it is extremely important to me that I get names and dates correct. You have helped me immensely!
Thank you so very much.
