  • de THOMPSON, Francisca Sepulveda

  • Los Angeles Times, Jan 27, 1892:

    OBITUARY

    MRS. FRANCISCA SEPULVEDA DE THOMPSON

    Mrs. Francisca Sepulveda de Thompson, wife of James Thompson of this city, died January 25, 1892, in the 66th year of her age, having been born in April, 1826, in this pueblo.  She was the eldest daughter of Don Jose and Dona Francisca Abila Sepulveda.  Mrs. Thompson was twice married, first to Don Jose Antonio Carrillo, a former secretary of the Territory of California, and twice a deputy to the Mexican Congress; and second to Mr. James Thompson, who still survives her.

    Mrs. Thompson was one of the most amiable and kind-hearted of women.  An American surgeon who arrived here in early times, and who is a resident of Los Angeles, used to say of her that "she was the first Sister of Charity he had ever seen" referring to her active sympathy for those who were in poverty or in distress.  Indeed, all who knew her not only admired her noble character, but they were attached to her by the strongest ties of affection.

    Mrs. Thompson being an Abila and a Sepulveda, both of which were prominent families here in the olden times, and being connected by marriage with the Carrillos (her first husband being a brother of Gov. Carlos Carrillo.) she leaves many relatives to mourn her loss; among them are her two brothers, Don Andronico Sepulveda of this city, Judge Y. Sepulveda of the City of Mexico, and two sisters, Mrs. T. D. Mott and Senorita Tranquilina Sepulveda, Mrs. de Valle of Camulos, who was an Abila, and many others, both contemporary and of later generations.  All who knew Dona Francisca will say:  "Of a truth a good woman is gone!"
