Albert Sidney Johnston, Jr
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
[Add A Photo]
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.
