Wedding Wednesday - Percival and Banks

On March 30, 1848 in Rising Sun, Ohio county, Indiana, Egbert D. Percival, son of Dr. John Stearns Percival and Matilda Goodridge Percival was married to Fanny Banks, daughter of Sarah Banks. By the time of the 1850 census, Egbert and Fanny were living in Memphis, Tennessee. On October 6,1851, there is a notice in the Memphis Appeal about the death of the child of Mr. Percival. By April of 1852, Egbert and Fanny have arrived in San Francisco via San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua and Acapulco, Mexico. Once in California, Egbert and Fanny split their time between Auburn and Rocklin, where Egbert mines and then takes to restaurant-keeping. Egbert died June 11, 1870 in Rocklin, California. Egbert left his wife, Fanny and son, Henry. Fanny remarries July 27, 1873 in Rocklin to C. W. Humphreys.

Egbert was the second-great-granduncle (half). His mother was my great-great-great grandfather's first wife; I am descended from the second wife, Sarah Ann Kirtley.
