Remarks: Mrs. Williams writes in her memoir, “We arrived in San Francisco May 5, 1851 and went to Jones Hotel. The parlor was quite elegant. The furniture was upholstered with purple velvet and a Brussels carpet was on the floor. Unluckily the city took fire that might have destroyed nearly all the houses. We then left for Sacramento to occupy a house previously prepared. It was located near Sutter’s fort, and was built of material brought around Cape Horn. We lived there three years and were during that time visited by storm flood and fire. We moved to Marysville, a flourishing town.” Mrs. Williams was married in Marysville in 1855. Her husband Stephen G. Williams continued a mercantile business in that city until 1861 when the family moved to San Francisco where she continued to reside until her death May 9, 1915.
