He returned the year following to Indiana and claimed for this bride Miss Susan Thompson Brown, oldest daughter of John Whitney Brown, whom he took back to the western home, to be followed in a few months by her father and his entire family. He soon invested his increasing possessions in land near Salt Springs, some ten miles to the west of Marshall, the county seat of Saline county. Here they remained for several years, when they left the farm and moved to Marshall to lead a less strenuous though prosperous life. From Marshall they removed to San Jose, [Santa Clara Co.,] California, in 1909. To them four children were born: Milton, Elizabeth, Mabel and Ralston.

I am a member of the Los Californianos, and a Member of the Moraga and Contra Costa Historic Society. My mother is Yvonne Mendoza y Bernal of S.J., and her mother is Velma L. Bernal y Escobar of San Jose, CA (b. 12-13-1901). Velma’s father was Dionisio Bernal y Sibrian from Pacheco, CA in Contra Costa County (b. 4-5-1865). Dionisio’s father was Nicolas Bernal y Soto (b. 12-6-1834), and his father was Juan Bernal y Peralta (b. 11-1802). Together with Joaquin Moraga, Juan Bernal owned Rancho Languna de los Palos Colorados in Contra Costa County. Juan’s father was Apolonario Bernal y Soto. Apolonario came to California with his siblings, and his father Juan Francisco Bernal, and his mother, Josefa de Soto in 1776 (de Anza). Dionisio Bernal’s mother was Maria Encarnacion Andrea Sibrian y Pacheco (b. 12-1-1832), and his siblings were John (Jack), Placido (PA), Ramon, Frank, Paeblo, Joe, Nicolas, and Antonio. Like me, they spent the better part of their lives in San Jose', CA. I know that Ramon had children, Leon and Anna, and Leon had Raymond Jr., Jean, Joan, and Martin.

I am trying to research the Berryessa ancestors of my great- grandfather, Francis Carl Berryessa. He was born 20 August 1912 in Alviso, CA and died 5 August 1998 in San Jose, CA.

We have been told that he was descended from Nicolas Antonio Berryessa who came from Spain with the DeAnza party in 1776. I would really appreciate any information.

The property name was Rancho De San Vicente, located in Almaden, CA. Jose Rey Berryessa is the son our my mother's great, great, great uncle, Alejandro Berryessa.
We are attempting to locate additional information and/or documentation pertaining to this Deed and would be very appreciative of anything you can do.

He married a Javanese princess Ann Louis d'Inio on May 5, 1858 in Semarang. Anna was born about 1827 in Pitala, Podang - Pandjang. She died Jan 22, 1899 in San Jose and is buried in Oak hill Mem. Park. She did remarry after the Baron died. He died Oct. 8, 1877 in San Jose and is buried at Oak hill Mem. Park. They went back to Holland where there was an overthrow of the King sometime in the 1860's. They were kicked out of the country. They went to England. But the weather did not agree with them. They came to America about 1870. They passed thru Chicago and finally settled in San Jose. They had 6 children. Four of the children were born in Pati and the last 2 in the Netherlands. Fritz and George the 2 oldest are listed in the Santa Clara Co. History book 1922 Page 237 & 238. But I do not have a copy. Fritz and George were members of the San Jose Symphony Orchestra. The family owned their own race tract at one time. I can trace these people back to 1703 to the Netherlands. I am missing 1 or 2 links between the Baron and my husband. I have alot of info I will be willing to share with anyone who is researching this line. Contact me Jane Foley at mjfent@bellsouth.net.

I am searching for info on a great uncle, who was last know to live in San Jose and died there on 4 Mar 1920. Stats are as follows" JOHN ADAM EMERY b-3 Jun 1850 in West Union, Adams Co, Ohio. Date of going West is unknown. Info I have, states he died at San Jose, CA on 4 Mar 1920. His wife was Deliah Jameson (2d marriage prior to going to CA. No data on her or where she was from, but thought to be Ohio. His first wife was a Lizzie Liebrock, should that help to identify my knowledge of the family.)
Three children: Daughter - Loy Emery
Son - Earl V. Emery
Daughter - unknown name
I have a picture of John, wife and three children. Also have a letter written to my grandmother (John's sister) from Earl's wife and they were living in Peru, South America, Apr 4, year unknown. There was no mention of children in the letter and I think maybe she may have been a native born Peruvian, but wrote good English in her letter. (So she may have been an American wife down in Peru with him)
Since the girls would probably have married and names changed, it may be difficult to locate any close data. If there would be anyway of contacting any of the extended family, I would be most appreciative. A great deal of John's siblings are in my hands and would be willing to share, if any help can be provided.

To the union of this marriage there were 14 children. The first child, a girl was born Aug 9, 1909 but only lived a few days. The following children were born after that, Mildred Irene, William Eugene, Leada Marjorie, Blanche Marie, Edwin Ross, Ruby Alice, James LeRoy, Elnore June, Keith Neal, Bobby Galen, Mac, Janice Elaine and Kenneth Elbert. They moved to California at some point (1935) and were living in Richmond. last known address was 754 34th Street. Ross died May 10, 1963, in Contra Costa County but as yet I have not been able to find out what City. I am assuming that it was Richmond because my Grandmother was still there in 1961, when my sister interviewed her. Cora died June 16, 1982, at the age of 92, in Santa Clara County. This leads me to believe that there are children of theirs still in that area. I am hoping to contact any or part of them. I am the youngest daughter of Ledea Marjorie GROVES, better known as Marge, and William Henry ( TURNER) BOYCE . If anyone has any information on my Grandparents please contact me via e-mail.

MARSHALL

2002-10-30 Warren Carah

I am seeking any information available on vaudeville theater owners in San Jose in the 1880's. In particular I am seeking a woman by the name of Elizabeth Marshall (maiden name), who with her 2 daughters ran a "vaudeville" theatre in the city. Unfortunately, I do not have Elizabeth's married name.
Elizabeth Marshall was born in Pennsylvania in 1840 to John (b. 1803) and Ann Marshall (b. ca. 1808), both of Lancashire, England. The family moved a great deal and at various times lived in England, Nova Scotia, Pennsylvania, and Chesterfield Co., Virginia.
Elizabeth, with her brothers Samuel (b. ca. 1828), John J. (b. 1830) and Thomas W. (b. 1834), and sister, Annie J.(b. 1832) came to California in about 1852 from Virginia.
Elizabeth's brothers were all miners in and around Mariposa County.
Based on family information, it is known that Elizabeth went into the entertainment business, but the circumstance and details are unknown.
I recognize that this query is a long shot, especially without Elizabeth's married name, but perhaps someone will recognize the circumstance and know the late 1800's entainment business in the san Jose area.

MAYER

1998-11-28 Rose Welch

I am researching my Great-great-great-grandmother, whose name was Dolores (maiden name was Arena or Arenas/ possibly Orenas) Mayer. I would appreciate any information that you may be able to gather about her, or direct me to sources that I can use to continue the research. She married Isaac Mayer. They had 6 children; Emil, Oscar, Arthur, Tom, William, and Lolita. Dolores was a Catholic and was brought up at an convent school (name unknown). And we don't know much else about her. My aunt learned that Dolores died in San Jose, at a place called Rancho Ensenas.I What was interesting to us was the story that, because Isaac was of Jewish faith, his father disowned him.  (His father was a member of the Hudson Bay Company of Canada). When Isaac died, probably in San Jose, his father had sent for his remains, and they were transported by rail. We don't know where he was buried, but assume that his family had a cemetery or family plot arranged for him. In any event, this is the first time that I've tried to investigate this side of the family tree, and I will appreciate any resources or information that you can direct me to.

My grandfather, Harvey MCBURNEY, died at Agnews State Hospital on 30 May 1927. Does anyone have any information about what happened to the records at Agnews and if they are available to family researchers? Before being admitted to Agnews, my grandfather apparently was a foreman at the Paicenes Ranch near Hollister, where also lived his mother Mary Jane MCBURNEY, and two of his four children, Grace and Eugene. From various family rumors, I have heard of some sort of fight that happened, involving Harvey, a shotgun, and a murder in Hollister, and have been told that Harvey was "very brave." I've also been told that all newspaper accounts from that time in Hollister have been destroyed -- but can only assume that my grandfather ended up at Agnews as a result of this fight. Any ideas anyone?

MURDOCH

2001-12-28 Robert Behra

I am seeking more information on Francis Butter MURDOCH, b. 21 Mar 1805 in Cumberland, MD, d. ca. 1881 in San José, CA. There is a biographical sketch on him in the 1881 History of Santa Clara County, California (p. 721), and he is mentioned in a sketch on his son George H. Murdoch in the 1893 Portrait and biographical record of Berrien and Cass Counties, Michigan (p. 291). He settled in San José in 1852, where he was editor of the Santa Clara Register and its successor the San José Telegraph 1852-1860. In 1863 he purchased the San José Tribune and renamed it the San José Patriot, selling it in 1875 (his son John Graham Murdoch was one of the purchasers). He entered the newspaper business once more in 1879 when he and his sons John G. and Francis W. started the Daily Morning Times. (This chronology is taken from Clyde Arbuckle's History of San José.) Murdoch was one of the founders of Berrien Springs, MI, where his two-storey log house is a tourist attraction (see http://www.berrienhistory.org/tour5.html). According to the sketch on his son mentioned above, Murdoch took his family to New Orleans for his wife's health, and then to Ohio. By 1838 he was living in Madison Co., IL, where he was prosecuting attorney in the case against those accused of murdering Elijah P. Lovejoy. By 1840 he was living in St. Louis, MO, where he was the first attorney representing Dred Scott in his unsuccessful bid for freedom. By 1849 he was once again living in Berrien Co., MI, and it is from there that he apparently left in May of 1852 to set out for California. He may have come through Salt Lake City on his way west, as the Marriott Library at the University of Utah has a book presented by Murdoch to the Territorial Library of Utah 23 Jun 1852. Murdoch was apparently married twice, first to Eliza KIMMEL, a native of Somerset Co., PA, and second to Mary E. [GRAHAM?], also a native of Pennsylvania.

I'd simply like to visit the actual house in that I was there with relatives for a week in 1931 as an 8 year old -- would at least like to know it it's still standing. I have a photo of it but can make out no address. The digits "58" come to mind, but I could easily be mixing that with others in my past, remembering only that my mother wrote her sister quite often over many years and seeing that familiar San Jose address was a constant in my life.

PERRY/PEREIRA

2002-10-31 Julie Powell

I am researching my grandfather's history. His name is Manuel Fisher Perry (b.10-07-1914 d. 12-27,1971). He is a "junior", but do not think it was recorded that way. His father and mother, Manuel Fisher Perry and Victorina Perry (nee Costa) came from Portugal. They moved to New Bedford Mass. I think in the early 1900's or late 1800's, then spent the rest of their lives in Santa Clara. They had 4 sons: Manuel, Art, Frank and Everett. Thanks for any help you can give me!

Marys maiden name was Gonsalves and middle name Perreira.  It might list surviving sisters in Calif. named Rose Gaspar or Eva Almeida, in Mass.

PETTIGREW

2002-12-27 Alice

I am trying to find information on the following people. A Thomas D. PETTIGREW, d: 13 Apr. 1948 who had parents of PETTIGREW & HODGE. He was buried at Alta Mesa Cemetery, Santa Clara Co., CA. He lived at 513 Hillside, Daly City, CA. On his death certificate is a Buelah D. RUSSELL, living at 519 Hillside. His father is listed as Henry PETTIGREW which I believe is an error. I believe Thomas is Thomas Dever PETTIGREW, a son of my Great-Grandfather by his 3rd wife who was a Catherine. Recently I have found that a marriage listed in a bio of Levi HODGES is a marriage of Levi's daughter Emeline and William G. PETTIGREW - and not of a son of William George PETTIGREW also named the same. Thomas D. in the death certificate has a mother listed as Catherine HODGES. I believe Levi's daughter to be either a Catherine Emiline or Emiline Catherine. The dates of the senior William line up with him being married to Catherine/Emeline and the dates I had prior to the death certificate - if this is true there were several children of that marriage. Thomas had 3 brothers (one of which was a Henry), also a older half-brother, and by his fathers 4th marriage there is another 3 half-brothers and 1 half-sister. Family information is that Thomas was still living in 1930, his wife Catherine came from San Francisco, CA. I don't know if Beulah is a relative, friend or neighbor. If you have any information concerning these names please contact me. Thank You.

His grandmother's name was Erma Orean Quinn LUCAS, born in Tacoma, WA around 1906 or 1907. She was the daughter of Thomas W. QUINN (d. 31 Jul 1935) and Emma A. Quinn (d. 2 Apr 1937).

QUINN

2000-02-13 James Amsler

Looking for a Quinn who was practicing law in Santa Clara in 1903. I read the following about my great-great-great grandmother, Mary Teresa Caffrey McGee: "Mrs. McGee bore her husband five children, three of whom died in infancy; the remaining two, both girls, now live at Santa Clare, Cal., one, Euphrasia, being the wife of Mr. Quinn, an advocate." This excerpt was taken from a book written in 1903, in Canada. I presume they mean Santa Clara, not "Santa Clare". My relatives and I are trying to learn more about these people, but unfortunately, we cannot find anything about this Mr. Quinn. By advocate, I take it to mean that he was a lawyer. Where can I find records of lawyers practicing in 1903? I contacted the Santa Clara Bar Association, but they could only suggest that I contact the California State Bar Association, who was not very helpful.

These were Desdemona b. 1836, Socrates b. 1837, and Malinda Rizer b. 1842.

RIZER

2000-07-25 Kathleen Rizer

I have traced Socrates Rizer from Tippecanoe Co., Indiana, where he was born about 1837, to San Jose, Santa Clara Co, Calif. Socrates Rizer in the 1880 census is in San Jose, a teacher. In the 1882/83 San Jose Directory he is listed as S.S. Rizer, principal at Socratic School of Science which had the address of 487 3rd (St./Ave.?)
Does anyone have further information about this school?? A recent lookup in the death records in Santa Clara Co. did not find that Socrates Rizer died in that location. He had originally moved to Calif. with his mother Malinda Strother Rizer and at least one of his three sisters - either Malinda, Desdamona, or Hellina Rizer.
Did he move from San Jose and where did Socrates Rizer go?
