Sacramento Mayor Jabez Turner, 1878

From: "M. Gregory" m.gregory87@yahoo.co.uk

My name is Peter Gregory from Kettering, Northanptonshire, England.

I am researching my family and Jabez Turner, Mayor of Sacramento, California in the year 1878, was great great uncle and he worked for the Southern Pacific Railroad Company as a foreman of the wood working department in the locomotive shops.
I am trying to find phots of Jabez when he was Mayor and any of him at work in railroad workshops.
He also was a director of the Sacracmento Free Library and the Sacramento Building and Loan Association.

If you have any photos or write ups on Jabez, I would be very pleased if you would be able to email to me.

Cheers,

—Peter

P.S. I still live 5 miles from were Jabez was born.
