California's pioneer women first recognized in 1900
This is the final installation in my series based on the recollections of pioneer women who arrived in California in the late 1840s. The San Francisco Chronicle gathered their histories and published them on Sept. 9, 1900, in commemoration of California's 50th anniversary.
Recounting women's roles in early California
Women played an important role in early Californian history. In 1900, California celebrated its first 50 years of statehood. The San Francisco Chronicle interviewed several prominent pioneer women and published their oral histories in an article on Sept. 9, 1900.
Semple was beaten to the punch in naming rights
In 1900, the San Francisco Chronicle commemorated California's 50th anniversary by interviewing prominent pioneer women. Among them was Frances Anne Cooper. She came to the Bay area in 1846 from Howard County, Mo. Her interview appeared on Sept [...]
Slavery of Indians was common in California
In 1846, Frances Anne Cooper, who later married Benicia founder Dr. Robert Semple, left Howard County, Mo., with her family for California. The San Francisco Chronicle published her oral history of these years on September 9, 1900 in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of California statehood.
Judge Currey became state's Chief Justice
By the late 1850s, John Currey was recognized as one of the most brilliant lawyers in northern California. In June 1858, he was nominated for the position of Justice to the Supreme Court of California by a segment of the Democratic Party, the Anti-Lecompton movement.
Disasters follow pioneer family
My last column talked about the experiences of Luzena Stanley Wilson and Mason Wilson in Sacramento during the winter of 1849-1850. The information is based on Luzena's memoirs and the research by Fern Henry in her new book "My Checkered Life: Luzena Stanley Wilson in Early California."
Benicia was known as the 'Athens of California'
This column continues the story of Frances Anne Cooper Semple and Susan Cooper Wolfskill and life in 1850s Solano County. Their stories appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle on Sept. 9, 1900 in commemoration of California's 50th anniversary.
Exercising women's rights to change
Women did not participate actively in sports and exercise until late into the 19th century.
Vallejo's Annie Lizzie Gill was a pioneer activist
As I start this series of columns, I have absolutely no idea on how many installments it will take to finish the story of a remarkable lady that lived in Vallejo, Annie Lizzie Gill who was born in 1863 on a farm outside the town of Oblong, Ill. Her story is a wonderful cavalcade of events and personal anecdotes before arriving in Vallejo in 1918, but since this is a local history column, I'll stick mostly to her life here in Solano County.
Settler's humor helped her cope in pioneer days
During the early years of the Gold Rush, women were a rare sight, especially in the gold fields, but also in the newly forming settlements. One of the few who braved the hardships of the journey was 28-year-old Luzena Stanley Wilson, who, together with her husband Mason Wilson and her two toddler-aged children, came to Vacaville in the spring of 1851.
