OBSEQUIES OF MRS. MARY C. JACKS WILL TAKE PLACE AT 2 P.M. TODAY
Last Rites to Be Conducted at Family Home in This City, and Remains Will Be Laid to Rest in Protestant Cemetery--Rev. H. A. Fisk to Conduct the Services The funeral of the late Mrs. Mary C. Jacks, who died in San Francisco Tuesday, will be held from the family home in this city at 2 o'clock this afternoon, under the direction of J. K. Paul. Rev. H. A. Fisk, pastor of the Presbyterian church, will conduct the obsequies. The following pallbearers have been selected: Henry Winham and W.W. Zabala of Salinas; W. S. Clayton, John Clayton and W. S. K. Brown, of San Francisco; and W. G. Hudson, of Monterey. From the family home at the corner of Scott and Pacific streets, the remains will be borne to their last resting place in the Monterey Protestant cemetery. Mrs. Jacks was one of the few remaining old pioneers of this section of California. She was born in Oajaca, Mexico in 1838, her maiden name being Maria Cristina Soledad Romie, the daughter of J.F. and Maria A. Frohm Romie, native of Germany, who settled in Mexico in 1834, and who came to Monterey in 1841. As a child she attended the school of Dona Anita Castanares, being taught to read and write Spanish. When nine years old, in 1846, Mrs. Jacks was present when the American flag was raised, and could give many interesting accounts of this famous occurrence. Mrs. Jacks, having been born and raised in a country where Spanish was the only language, was a fine Spanish scholar, and it is told that in 1859, when she went to school in Santa Clara, she would have to think in Spanish and mentally translate her thought and express them into English. Besides Spanish and English, Mrs. Jacks could also speak German, the tongue of her parents. On April 20, 1861, she married the late David Jacks in San Luis Obispo, and resided in Monterey until she moved to San Francisco a few years ago.
