|Albert Sidney Johnston wall killed in the explosion of the boiler of the Ada Hancock, a small tender that ferried passengers from Wilmington (San Pedro) out to the deep waters where a large boat, the Senator, waited. There was incredible carnage and dozens of people were killed or badly injured.|
Sidney was initially buried on the the Fair Oaks Ranch in now Altadena, but his remains were moved to Rosedale in 1888.
Bottom line is "Would GOd I had died for thee" which are Mrs. Eliza Johnston's sentiments.
