It was a remembrance, a re-connection of family ties. Just over a year ago, 1 was hired to give one of my historical tours to a group gathered at the Julian Lodge for their yearly family reunion. They are descendants of James and Mary Jane Duffy. According to the San Diego Union newspaper of July 2, 1908, James. Duffy came to Julian when gold was found here in 1870. The same article says that James gave up his interest in the mines and became a farmer, raising both cattle and fruit. Somehow farming led to James becoming a deputy sheriff. After an unsuccessful bid to become sheriff, James returned to farming. In 1873, he married Mary Taylor of Julian. They had many children. In 1893, James was appointed superintendent of the County hospital and moved the family to San Diego. He still held that position at the time of his death. James and Mary Jane lost two children while they lived here in Julian.They are :buried at the top of cemetery hill in a family plot. James' mother in law, Anne Jane (Moles) Taylor and two sisters, Annie and Mary are buried there, along with their husbands Henry Crase and Frank Miller respectively. Prior to meeting the family, I did a little extra research on the Duffy family. So when we opened the tour, which always begins in the Julian Cemetery, I was prepared to show them the family plot and give them a little family history. After the tour, and before we parted ways, some of the family expressed a wish to place new markers on their family graves. The project was approved by the cemetery board to allow new, period appropriate U [] 11/19/2014 11:00 am Julian Town Hall 21 29 Main St Julian, CA 92036 12/0512014 11:00 am Julian Town Hall 2129 Main St Julian, CA 92036 There is no obligation or costto attend.

The process took just over a year while family records and death certificates were obtained that could verify the dates and correct names to be carved into the headstones. It was an effort that not many families would. undertake, or, follow through with. Eileen Harter coordinated the project, it was no small task. I shared my records with the family, and they shared theirs .with me. One family member, Annie Crase, has a special place in the Julian cemetery's history. The cemetery operated for over fifty years without anyone in charge of it or keeping records. It was Ida Bailey Wellington, John McCain, and Annie Crase who located and helped to mark 129 unidentified graves in the cemetery in 1922. Ironically, Annie's grave remained without a headstone until 2010. That was the 140th anniversary of the cemeterY. I found a local stone and Pyramid memorials engraved it at no cost in honor of the occasion. It was placed and dedicated on November 20, 2010, the anniversary of the first burial in the cemetery. I had a personal stake in this whole thing because I grew up in Frank and Mary Millers house. Mary became Frank's bride on the 25th day of December, 1897 Christmas day. Frank built them a "beautiful new home" according to one newspaper. The "beautiful home'"began as a one room affair measuring 12 feet by 22 feet, typical of pioneer homes. Later a kitchen was added, and after that a lean-to addition which served as a bedroom. The house, now owned by me, can be seen in the orchard behind Wynola Flats. Saturday morning was a bright and beautiful day at the Cemetery. Eighteen Duffy family descendants were gathered at the family plot to view the new markers and share stories of their family's past. Two members came from as far away as Eureka, Ca. and Wyoming to be a part of this very special occasion. Perhaps the Duffy pioneers would be annoyed at the cost and the fuss after all this time. I doubt that. I bet they would be proud that their people still care about them. I was proud to be a part of it.
