  • ID: I5044
  • Name: Margaret Anne POMEROY
  • Nickname: Annie
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: Aug 1854 in Kensington, Middlesex, England
  • Death: 15 May 1928 in , Alameda, California
  • Note:
    William and Margaret Thomas are not (together) the parents of Annie. The 1900 Census indicates that William and Margaret are the parents of Annie but they had been married only 19 years, while Annie was 45 years old in 1900. 19 years is also the number of years that William Thomas had been in the U.S., while Margaret (and Annie and her husband Frederick G Wilson) had been in the U.S. 22 years. The California Death record of Annie's daughter Gertrude indicates that her mother's maiden name was Pomeroy, not Thomas. It appears that Annie may have left England with her mother after her father Mr. Pomeroy died. Shortly after arrival in the U.S., Annie's mother took William Thomas as her second husband. William and Margaret lived with or near Annie and her family in 1900 and 1910. Following the death of one of her parents, I think it is more likely that Annie would have wanted her remarried mother nearby, rather than a remarried father, i.e. Margaret is the true parent of Annie, and Annie's birth surname is Pomeroy.

      Title: Pomeroy, Annie, Genealogy
      Author: Funk, Lizan
      Publication: email 23 Oct 2010
      Note: Annie (Pomeroy) was my great-grandfather's younger sister. Her birth name was Margaret Anne Pomeroy. She was born in Kensington, England. Her father's name was Phillip William Pomeroy, born in East Allington, Devon, England to William Pomeroy and Sarah Marsh. Annie's mother's name was Margaret Gilbert. Margaret was born 1830 in the Barcham district, Brixham, Devon. Her parents are George Gilbert (Gilberd) and Mary Drew. Phillip William (Pomeroy) died in Australia abt 1874 in a robbery at his opal digs. The story is Margaret (Gilbert) and (William) Thomas knew each other in England. Margaret and Annie followed Margaret's son and Annie's brother, Phillip George Gilbert (Pomeroy), to San Francisco abt 1876-1878. I found a marriage license for a Margaret Pomeroy and a Thomas in England, so I am not sure where they married, San Francisco or London. For a number of years, Margaret and her husband (William Thomas), Annie (until she married), P.G.G. and his wife, Elizabeth with their 3 boys lived in a house on Chestnut and Larkin in San Francisco. After P.G.G. (Pomeroy) and his family moved to Seattle in 1898, Margaret moved near Annie and Fred (Wilson).

      Note: Fred and Annie Wilson married 18 years in 1900, indicates marriage in 1881 or 1882.
      Date: 1 Jun 1900
