  • Notes 
    • Birth: 1867
      Death: 1933

      George Henry Byard was not born in 1869 as his gravestone shows; he was born 25 May, 1867 in Eel River Valley on his father's farm, located on Strong's Creek between Fortuna and Rohnerville. When the 1870 Federal census was taken for the Eel River Township precinct, George was shown as age three.

      George was 6' tall with brown hair and blue eyes and never married. He always lived with his father or his brother, Arthur, or his sister Lil and he worked as a farm laborer until 1910 when the census showed him working as a teamster.

      After George's father died in 1915, his sister Lillith and her husband, James Trainor, moved to the farm and by the 1920 census, George was living with them, working "on his own account" as a dairy farmer. Ten years later, George was still living on the farm with Lil, who was now a widow.

      George died in Humboldt County on Jan. 22, 1933. I don't know if he died on the family farm or died in a hospital
      somewhere. He was buried at Sunrise Cemetery with the rest of his family in the Byard plot.

      I hope George had a good life. His family members seem to have been very important in his life so apparently George was happy to spend his life with them.
