Julia J (Trombly) Burbank (1867 - 1938) Owner of the “Forty Niner Camp” adopted children…

+1 vote

Julia Trombly was born in September 1867 in Serota, New York, USA. Her parents were George Trombly and Theotis Dragon. She died on June 15, 1938 in Oakland, Alameda, California. Per her obituary, It appears she was a camp owner of the “Forty Niner Camp” she is the daughter of U.S. Civil War veteran of the 9th New York Cavalry George Trombly Sr. I’d like to know more about my ancestor who was she married to as she we believe married twice? What was the “Forty Niner Camp”? Any other sources?

Thank you

Note: they lived in New Hampshire briefly then moved all the way to California..why?

Their son Willis Alfred Burbank (1909 - 1982) has an amazing collection of resources and audio of his genealogy on family search. Absolutely wonderful! What a treasure for all us related to this Trombly branch laugh

Note: It appears her children were adopted? Arthur and Willis are TWINS!
