Early California pioneer. Daughter of Levi W. Giddings. Before 1882, residents of historic Pasadena, California, buried their loved ones in their backyards or on other family property. Then, local resident Col. Banbury decided to sell his property that lay along the Arroyo Seco, now part of the Wrigley Estate. The Colonel's son, Charles, however, was already buried in the area along with Laura Giddings and a few other Pasadena residents. The question of what would happen to these graves if Col. Banbury sold his estate prompted Levi Giddings to offer part of his property to be set aside for a cemetery. In early 1883, Col. Banbury's son, Charles, Laura Giddings, and others were removed from the area along the Arroyo Seco and reinterred in the newly established cemetery on Fair Oaks Avenue...Mountain View Cemetery. By the end of the year, eight other transfers were made for a total of 24 burials. There are a number of Giddings' interred at Mountain View. All are related to Joshua Reed Giddings, the well-known anti slavery statesman from Ohio, who was greatly instrumental in the formation of the underground railroad.
