Historical Event
Trail of Tears
between 1830 and 1830
Note: The Trail of Tears is a name given to the ethnic cleansing and forced relocation of Native American nations from southeastern parts of the United States following the Indian Removal Act of 1830. The removal included many members of the Cherokee, Muscogee (Creek), Seminole, Chickasaw, and Choctaw nations, among others in the United States, from their homelands to Indian Territory in eastern sections of the present-day state of Oklahoma. The phrase originated from a description of the removal of the Choctaw Nation in 1831. In 1831 the Choctaw were the first to be removed, and they became the model for all other removals. After the Choctaw, the Seminole were removed in 1832, the Creek in 1834, then the Chickasaw in 1837, and finally the Cherokee in 1838. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trail_of_Tears

The war ended at the Battle of San Jacinto (about 20 miles) east of modern day downtown Houston) where General Sam Houston led the Texas Army to victory in 18 minutes over a portion of the Mexican Army under Santa Anna, who was captured shortly after the battle.

Inscription on large grave marker for Bole family plot in Cypress Lawn Cemetery, Colma, California, reads as follows:

                                      In Affectionate Remembrance
                                                        David Bole
               Who was born at Beclare, near Westport, Mayo,
               Ireland and departed this life in San Francisco, April
               5th 1898, Aged 68 years, 2 mos, 12 days.

               A denizen in his youthful days of Newport and Athlone,
                in early manhood of the Victoria Gold Fields,
               Gippsland, and California: and in riper years of Reno
               Nevada as one of her early settlers;  He devoted the
                evening of life largely to travel and to re-visiting the
                former scenes of his life well-rounded career.

  This cemetery plot actually is registered in the name of the "Estate of David Bole" and appears to have been purchased by him for the Bole family and their spouses.  Also members of the Blean family of Ireland are also buried here because of the relationship to the Bole family.  David Bole's probate records, if any, were lost in the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire.  He appears to have never married.
