David Remick Regulary Army Brig-Gen 1820-1901 Vermont

Remick,was born, according to the family record, in the
Province of Quebec, March 22, 1820, and died in Los Angeles, CA,
January 23, 1901. A part of his youth was spent in Vermont, in
the towns of Calais and Woodbury, where his parents resided.
Another account says that he lived in Montpelier, Vermont, and
attended college in Potsdam, St. Lawrence County, New York. He
entered Military life in 1848 during the war with Mexico and was
promoted to lieutenant. At the close of the war he removed to
Chicago, Illinois, where, in 1849, he joined the gold rush to
CA. He engaged in placer mining in the middle and northern
sections of the State and by energy, perseverance and luck made
a considerable fortune. His next business enterprise was in the
Isthmus of Panama, where he assisted in establishing a stage
line across Nicaragua. At this time, 1855, his residence was at
San Juan del Sud. Befor the stage line was fairly launched,
however, the country was invaded by the revolutionary army of
William Walker, a filibustering adventurer, and business
interests were paralyzed. With his investments ruined and the
greater part of his fortune gone, Mr. Remick returned to Chicago
and entered the employ of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy
Railroad, making his home in Burlington, Iowa. At the outbreak
of the War between the States, early in 1861, he answered the
call of President Lincoln for volunteers and was assigned to the
commissary department with the rank of captain. Upon the
division of the army into corps, he became a member of the
Fourth Corps, then a part of the Army of the Potomac. He was
rapidly promoted to colonel and at the partial reorganization of
the army in 1863, was detailed to the Army of the West, then
commanded by General William Tecumseh Sherman. He rose to the
rank of brigadier general in the commissary department and did
extremely valuable work in reorganizing this department, which
provisioned and supplied Sherman's army on the famous march to
the sea. At the close of the war, General Remick returned to
Burlington, Iowa, and his association with the Chicago,
Burlington & Quincy Railroad. Later, he develped extensive
connection with the banking lumber interest in Iowa. After
twenty years' residence at Burlington, he removed with his
family to Lincoln, Nebraska, where he remained for thirteen
years and became an important figur in community life,
especially in public and progressive movements. In 1881 he
visited Los Angeles, CA, and at this time and later purchased
valuable holdings in the city and its vicinity. These included
the Remick block now owned by his daughter, Maude (Remick)
Warren, and a forty-acre track on Vermont Avenue whe he planted
oranges, lemons and olives. General Remick removed to Los
Angeles permanently in 1894 with his family and spent the
remainder of his life there. He was a member of Stanton Post,
Grand Army of the Republic, and influential in the other Grand
Army Posts of the city. His military reputation and genial
personality won for him here, as elsewhere, deep affection and
esteem. General David Remick married (first) in Burlington,
Iowa, in 1853, Martha A. Cameron. She died in 1862 or 1864. He
married (second), in Red Oak, Montgomery County, Iowa, Febuary

Mary Anna Barker was born on 18 Jun 1848 in Canada, Quebec, MontŽrŽgie, Iberville. She died on 9 Mar 1940 in Los Angeles, Los Angeles, Ca. She was buried in Hollywood memori, Los Angeles, Ca. She married Thomas Asbury Harding.

Also called Little Mollie as a child. Her Civil War pension
papers are addressed to Mamie Harding. After her husband Thomas
death she often goes by Mary Anna Sperry. In her later years
she was nicknamed Nana.

Raised by her maternal grandparents, James and Esther Harrison.
After her grandfathers death Mary Anna and her grandmother lived
at her Aunt Anna Delia (Harrison) Topley's home.

A family story states that when she was a little girl she was
coming across the country with her parents in a wagontrain. They
met some Indians who wanted to buy Mary Anna or perhaps just
wanted to buy any children. Her parents hid her under a
mattress in the wagon and they had no troubles.

There is another family story that two people were married at 14
years of age, and joined a wagontrain headed west. They were
headed along a northern route, but ran into Kit Carson. He
directed them south to avoid running into Indians. I believe
that this story could be about Rufus Sperry, his wife Jane and
Mary Anna.
