|I am able to send photos of grave markers in the Buena Vista Cemetery in Murphys, CA if you need them.|
Since I am located in Calaveras County, CA, one of the gold rush areas, I do genealogical look-ups for people searching for ancestors may have been in that county in the 1800s.
In the gold rush area, family lines were Figaro, Foppiano, Periano, Maletesta, Airola, Miller.
My family lines are Kelly/Davis/O'Bannon & Elliott and also Mittelstet, all of them being in the area of OK, KS.

|Ken Myers||Copperopolis Cemetery - James Clothier|
You recently posted a record for Catherine Clother (Copperopolis Cemetery) on February 18th of this year. Catherine was married to James C. Clothier, who was a 49er from Nantucket, MA. He died on May 10, 1899. Both returned to Copperopolis from a short time in Southern California for their final years. I was able to find their records in the Calaveras County Death Index but their burial location was "Not Listed."
If you ever get a chance to return to Copperopolis, would you please check to see if James is also buried there? I'm assuming that Catherine's age (y/m/d) was taken from her headstone. If James' has the same, I'd sure appreciate knowing it. Right now, all I have is that he was born in 1810 (Woolwich, England).
James and Catherine are 3rd Great Grandparents of mine. Thank you for you posting of Catherine's record!

I don't have a firm date. I would think the pregnancy would have occurred early in the marriage (1/16/1895)- maybe the end of 1895, early 1896? She was so ill - she probably would have been pregnant soon after marriage and not later. Just a guess.

John Manuel and Mary Malspina Manuel had an infant daughter who only lived for two days, according to her niece, my main source of family information. She recorded that Mary almost died of typhoid fever following this event.
I wonder if there is any record in the local newspaper or any way to tie the gravesite with their infant.
|personna||Joseph Bright Wiles - Memorial# 108540382|
Hello - I've been looking for this family without luck for awhile now. Can you please tell me how you determined Joseph was buried here? I've been to the cemetery and thought I got to all the tombstones, but I might be thinking of a different cemetery or I just missed a stone.
I know there are a lot of burials in Vallecito #1 that relate to the Wiles family. Have you had any luck finding information on his wife? I must not be looking in the right places, but I keep trying.
Thank you for telling me your source for the burial. I've known he was most likely there but wouldn't enter it in my database without some kind of support. - Nancy

Thank-you for the information.
On familysearch Emily E Joy married Charles Henry Sept. 12,1915 in Stockton. He was born in England.
Emilys father was John Decker born in Germany. Emilys mother Sarah O'Donal? born in Ireland.
|Bill and Sue Payne||RE: 107852553|
Thank you for your very extensive response to my question concerning the date of the Gagliardo building. I have the original deed to the property dated 2 May 1885. I have a few other original deeds and misc. papers. If you are interested I will send you my inventory. No doubt they are all recorded.
A bit more on Clara Barton Hospital, listed in the 1905 SF City Directory. It is mentioned in a snippet from "The Barbary Plague - the Black Death in Victorian SF" by Marilyn Chase. I hope Lyda's death certificate will give me more information.
Would you like me to send you a photo of Mary Malspina? (Her sister Eva had the middle name Anna.)
|Steve Harrison||George Oliver Swenson|
Here is what I have on Ella Mill, if this might help. She married Frank Taaffe, July 29, 1903 in Tehama County. I do not know if they divorced or he died. She second married Louis Elfers, July 16, 1913 in San Rafael. He died in 1929 in Madera County. Because her name when she died was Swenson, I just figured her third husband was George O. Swenson. They are listed together in the 1940 census living in Tuolumne county. Thanks, Steve (I have a distant and indirect connection to Louis Elfers, so do not have any additional information.)
|Pat Allan||RE: Julia Porteous - birth?/marriage?|
Thanks so much for the additional information which is helping to sort this out. Aware of 1897 Calaveras co. CA marriage of Louise Grace PHILLIPS (1879-1974) & (Alva's half 1st cousin), George James PORTEOUS (1872-1954) - short lived marriage. Would appear that Alva & Julie married 1906-07 ... which certainly fits better with her c1888 birth & their son's 1908 birth.

Sadly I've never been able to find any document with his name on it after 1896. No census or anything
|Anne Shurtleff Stevens||Mary Demarest.|
Can you send her obit? The information you have me was off enough for me to wonder if we have the same person?
