GEAR - GEER - CARESMA
     I recently relocated from Southern California to Northern California and I am looking for ancestors/descendants of Gertrude GEAR (GEER) or CARESMA from the Clarksburg area. My great grandmother came from the Azores Island and married Joseph E. LEE also from the Azores. I am not sure if they married in the Azores or in Clarksburg area. I am trying to find out information on her family. I think some of her siblings were Amelia and Rose GEAR possibly from Terceira. Gertrude was born 11-1866 and died March 7, 1936, in Sacramento. Rose GEAR married an Albert MENDES whose name was Albert RODGERS and they had the following children: Albert, Margaret, Amelia, George, Frank, Edward, Willie and Mary RODGERS. They too might have lived in Clarksburg I am not sure. I do not know much about the family yet. I am not sure how they got to Folsom, perhaps by way of Hawaii? I am looking for any information or documents on this family. Gertrude had the following children: Manuel, Mary, Frank. John, Laura, William (my grandfather), Antone. The family owned land near the Souza Ranch in Clarksburg as my mom remembers going to Catholic instruction there. She too was born in Clarksburg. I am not sure if the local Catholic Church still has records that far back or if their births were recorded elsewhere..

LEE - LEAL
     I recently relocated from Southern California to Northern California and I am looking for ancestors/descendants of Joseph E. LEE from the Clarksburg area. My great grandfather came to Clarksburg from the Azores Island in 1882. He married Gertrude GEAR (GEER) or CARESMA, also from the Azores. She had been in the U.S. since 1882 also. Do not know if they were married in the Azores or not. I do not know what ship or where they came in at. According to verbal history, the family name was LEAL and he decided there were too many LEALs so he changed the name to LEE. They had the following children: Joe, Manuel, Mary, Frank, John, Laura, William (my grandfather), and Antone. The children were born from 1883-1899. They owned a ranch down from the Souza ranch in Clarksburg approximately 16 acres. My mother remembers the Catholic Church in Clarksburg and heard that they lost some of their records due to a fire. The family traveled to Folsom a lot and my grandfather ended up marrying Katherine FRATIS from Folsom. The two of them would settle in Clarksburg. I am looking for any information on the LEE family and their siblings. I do not know if Joseph LEE had siblings living in Clarksburg. I am assuming he did. Any help anyone could give me would be appreciated. It is located in a rural area and any information would be appreciated.

O'SULLIVAN - mystery: lost relative

      I am searching for a relative who was literally lost. He worked on ranches in the Woodland area, so the family story goes. In about the year, 1937, he was missing. The family in San Francisco went to look for him with no luck. I don't know who he worked for, as I wasn't born yet, and the older family members are gone. This is what I know:  Jeremiah O'SULLIVAN was born in County Cork, Ireland, late 1880's, and came to San Francisco to join his brother Michael, sister Margaret O'S WALSH, Nellie O"S. HURLEY, and Julia O'S. MURPHY.
      Are there any papers of the time that would indicate his death or   disappearance? Is he listed in any directories or city census' or church affiliations. He was a Catholic. Perhaps when he was listed as missing by his employer and family, the church posted a "pray for" request. Do you have any county records for un-identified bodies of that time?
     This is quite vague, I realize, but if you care to take up an old missing persons case with me, I'd be extremely grateful.
Thank you,
Sincerely,

STRONG - BLAIR - SIMS
      I am looking for a daughter of Prince Albert and Frances (Coppage Renfro) STRONG: Mary B (Strong) and James V SIMS. Supposedly, the Strong family stayed with them when they went to CA.

      Mary L BLAIR married William Alfred STRONG on 7 Aug 1873.  Mary L. is listed as the wife of A W STRONG in the 1880 Yolo Co Census. Linnie BLAIR is listed as a stepdaughter, but it looks like her father was b in NY and mother in IL. So it doesn't look like she is the daughter of Mary L. BLAIR. Does anyone have any ideas?
