    3. The list owner on my Scotch-Irish group moved our group to another platform. I will forward the information that she has sent out. I agree that this is a very sad day. I certainly hope that the archives will not disappear! I just sent someone the thought to search the archives for another group on a subject that I remember having gotten a lot of discussion. Thank you, Yvonne for having been list mother for all of these years. ‘ If I were thinking about how much the list has meant to me, my first thought would be that I got to know Tim Purdy through this list. Tim enriched my research by a thousand fold! He helped me find the cemetery in which my McKinsey family is buried in Susanville….he helped me sort out my Andrew Jackson McKinsey when this family was still a mystery to me. Tim I can never thank you enough! I have new information about this family through dna, Tim. If you have interest, give me a yell and I’ll share. Secondly I would remember all of the discussion that all of us had about the swimming extravaganza building just west of San Francisco. I can’t come up with the name right this minute. But my husband and I had lots of fun seeing the ruins on our next visit….and I brought home photos that I bought that still hang on the wall in my home in WV. And perhaps third I would remember that someone suggested how to look up passage to San Francisco if one took a boat from NY and then rode a donkey across the isthmus and then took a boat up the west coast. Which is what my grandmother’s grandmother did…..with a new baby and a husband who was going to meet her as he had come earlier…..wow… not a wimpy woman! This list has enriched my life in many ways….thank you to everyone!

    1. [CA-GOLDRUSH] [EXTERNAL] Re: Hannibal Congdon
    2. Yvonne Bowers
    3. I, too, have no info on your Hannibal but my great-great-grandparents, James and Elizabeth BENNEY, made a similar trek. They emigrated from Cornwall to Wisconsin around 1847 settling in Mineral Point. They bought property and had a child while there. James BENNEY evidently went to California to look for possibilities around 1852. The ship Golden Gate (Steamer) arrived in San Francisco from Panama May 21, 1852 Passenger: J. A. Benney (or Banney? or Bonney?) and C. L. Benney. C.L. could have been their daughter Catherine Lyne BENNEY however she would only have been about 5 years old at the time. Elizabeth still had young children at home besides Catherine. While James was in Placer Co. CA., Elizabeth (my ggm) (his “attorney in fact”) sold in the property took care of the sale to John Goulden for $140 August 1854. Family possibly arrived in California Feb. 4, 1855 via “Uncle Sam” from Nicaragua departed Jan. 24, 1855 (with NY passengers from “Star of the West” and New Orleans passengers from “Daniel Webster”. A “J. Benney” was listed. Elizabeth would have been 4 mos. pregnant with (my ggm) Ellen. (Rasmussen). My great-grandmother Ellen was born July 19, 1855 at Michigan Bar (on the Cosumnes River). *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* Yvonne Bowers Listmom, Webmom <[email protected]> CA-GOLDRUSH > On Nov 29, 2019, at 1:02 AM, [email protected] wrote: > > Date: Thu, 28 Nov 2019 16:05:51 +0000 (UTC) > From: [email protected] <mailto:[email protected]> > Subject: [CA-GOLDRUSH] [EXTERNAL] Hannibal Congdon > To: [email protected] <mailto:[email protected]> > Message-ID: <[email protected] <mailto:[email protected]>> > Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8 > > Still looking for clues on Hannibal Congdon who left Palmyra (Jefferson County) Wisconsin around 1850 for the California gold rush and was never heard from again.

    1. [CA-GOLDRUSH] [EXTERNAL] Wisconsin to California
    2. marsha moses
    3. No, I do not have any ideas for you. But I do have an ancestor who made a similar trip. I have never poked around trying to figure out what the resources are for those who made the trek from Wisconsin to California. But I do have an interest in looking at this after the holidays. My ancestor is Rachel Frances Fresch. She was born in Kentucky 14 April, 1826. I do not yet know what her maiden name was. Fresch is the name of her first husband. From Tim Purdy Sept 2006: Lassen Advocate, Susanville, California - 4 February 1886 3;5 Obituary. The subject of this sketch, Miss Rachel F. McKinsey, was born in Kentucky April 14, 1826, and died in Susanville, Lassen County, Cal., Jan. 28, 1886. She removed when quite young with her parent from her native State of Missouri, where she lost her mother. From there she moved to Wisconsin. She married in the latter State, John Henry Fresch and with him came to Downieville, Cal., in the year 1852. Soon after their arrival in the next summer her husband died. In the year 1854 she was married to Mr. A.J. McKinsey, with whom she lived in happy marriage relations up to the time of death, which occurred in Susanville at the date above given at the residence of her son N.S. McKinsey. She removed from Downieville to this place with her husband in July 1883, and made her home with her son. She had two children born to her. One by her first husband, born Aug. 13, 1853, and was drowned in the Yuba River in 1862. The other by her second husband, residing at this time in Susanville. and After coming to California, he (Andrew Jackson) married Mrs. Rachel Frasch, who crossed the plains from Wisconsin about 1850 and settled in Sierra County, where her husband drowned. (this information from History of the State of California and Biographical record of the Sierras) by Prof J.M. Guinn, A.M. I received a photocopy of the pages that were relevant from Tim Purdy spring 1998. Thank you for posting. Your post made me think about this ancestor that I know so little about. It is a name to think about when I am looking at the dna matches this year. > On Nov 28, 2019, at 11:05 AM, unette via CA-GOLDRUSH <[email protected]> wrote: > > Still looking for clues on Hannibal Congdon who left Palmyra (Jefferson County) Wisconsin around 1850 for the California gold rush and was never heard from again.

    2. BOB CROUCH
    3. Hello fellow Gold Rush searchers, This is especially addressed to Julie Mulroy and Yvonne Bowers. Thanks to both of you expressing interest in helping with my family research. It has been quite unexpected but very welcome as I had pretty much given up in my quest. I believe a quick answer to most of your questions concerning what I currently do know about my GGF, Robert "Sandy Bob" Crouch can be found on this website http://www.myfamilyonline.com/getperson.php?personID=I2&tree=T0051 created several years ago by the folks at My Family Online from many documents I've accumulated over the years and especially my childhood conversations with Sandy Bob's daughter, Aunty Bee, with whom I stayed for a time during World War II where she spent most of her life at 27 Priest street on Nob Hill. Unfortunately, I was way too young to appreciate the opportunity then to really dig into family history. Some added observations include: --The arrival cited document in 1852 is only a hunch as it coincides with family oral tradition. By Aundy Bee's account, he ran away from home and "sailed" to California from New York. The arrival document lists an R. Crouch, from Ohio on the Golden Gate's passenger list. There was another R. Crouch well documented, from Ohio, who settled in Sonoma County, but I believe he has an alternative arrival. --For any of you who might be interested in the Tombstone period, the M.S. Thesis in History from Tom Peterson is suggested. It is dedicated to Aunty Bee, as unbeknownst to me he spent considerable time interviewing her. It chronicles much of the Sandy Bob stage history in Arizona. --The marriage to Helen Elizabeth Simmons is well documented. --I found property purchase deeds (with payment in gold) and located dwelling and stable locations in both Colusa and Marysville. --...and I was named after him--probably the root of my curiosity and research efforts on his past rather than my Dad's (probably more illustrious) maternal (Monmonier) line, also early settlers in California and Arizona. I hope this might answer most of your questions but welcome any feedback or tips through this forum or more directly at [email protected] Again my heartfelt appreciation to all you generous seekers.

    3. Listers, I am looking for death information on my GG-uncle William BENNEY. He was born St. Cleer, Liskeard Dist., Cornwall in 1845. The family (my GGGF James BENNEY, his wife Elizabeth BENNETTS BENNEY) emigrated to Mineral Point, WI. around 1847 and then to Michigan Bar on the Cosumnes River, CA. by 1855 when my GGM, Ellen BENNEY, was born. They were Cornish miners; placer mining and hardrock. The family is found in the 1860 census in Salmon Falls, El Dorado Co. including William. James died in the Great Flood of 1862 on the American River (January 1862) - the one that flooded Sacramento. The remaining family was in New Almaden (Quicksilver Mining) by 1868. William was registered in the “Foreign-Born Voters of California in 1872” Record #3046 Year Registered 1868 - Almaden Township - Citizen by Virtue of Naturalization of Father. After that, we lose track of William. The family thought he was the William who married Anna PALAMOUNTAIN in 1887 Grass Valley but that was actually William Wright BENNEY (my James’ nephew). I haven’t found the family in the 1870 census. In 1880 Elizabeth and her new husband William PARRY are in Gold Hill, Storey Co., NV. My GGM Ellen BENNEY (now married to my GGF John OLIVER who was in the 1870 Almaden census - unmarried age 24) are in Amador Co. No mention of William. Looking for any marriage or death information. Thanks! Y.

    3. Hi Bob, I wish I could be more helpful. From your email it appears you do have info on Sandy Bob from 1860 on. He registered to vote in Colusa County in 1867 but I didn’t readily find him in the 1860 census. I did find an interesting article in the SF Examiner 7/26/1885 about Indians killing some Americans and Mexicans and were on Sandy Bob’s ranch. I can send you the pdf if you don’t already have it. Do you know where he was born and how he got to California? Have you found him in the 1860 census? Do you have info on his wife? If she was born in CA. you might be able to track him through her. Sorry if this is already stuff you’ve done before.
