Looking for any records of George Mellor born to George Mellor & Elizabeth Barnett 1842 Manchester Lancashire UK.  His wife was Elizabeth or Lizzie Kane born 1852 New Brunswick Canada.
Their children Elizabeth,George,Sarah,Benjamin,Mary,Margueritte & Gertrude we’re all born in California Between the years 1870-1885 .
I have been unable to find a marriage or George on any census records in the US .
His wife Lizzie in the 1900 Census says she’s widowed living in Market st SAN Fransisco.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It makes a starting point for us to try and find where your family might have lived
and the earliest sighting, if we are to try and trace George...

California Voters List - shows Elizabeth - widowed (Benjamin., Sadie and Mamie also at this address)   at 439 1/2 Bryant - 1896/1897/1898

I found an 1870 Census a George Millard Cook in Hotel in Sacramento Ward 5 but Lizzie’s age doesn’t seem to fit.

I think you’re definitely on the right track I know Sarah was nicknamed Sadie 👌

There is a George A Mellor - 775 Market Rear San Francisco 1878 transcribed as waiter Dwl  - listing gives - cook - City and County Hospital , E's Potrero Av, between twenty second and twenty third.


Could be the same guy as above (not sure he would be the correct one) - George Mellor - California Great Registers, 1866-1910

1878 - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VYDH-VY5

1876 - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VT6L-K39

That could very well be him.👍The 1880 Census has Lizzie as married so George must have still been alive then.

1910 census says Elizabeth had been married 40 years - which fits with the birth of Elizabeth Barnett Mellor.

Statewide registration of deaths began in 1905 with general compliance by 1920.
