Jane Schlager: My Great-Great Grandfather, Samuel Bean, built the Presbyterian Church

Dear June,

I was wondering if you have any information on the builder, Samuel Bean.  I was told that my family “sailed around the horn”, settling in the Redwood City area in 1849.  I was told he built the Presbyterian Church in Pescadero which is now a historical landmark and that Bean Hollow was named form.  I still have some of his building records from that time.

Thank you,

Jane E. Schlager,

Hello June,

Samuel Bean is my great great grandfather.
He married Celia White Hankerson (from Maine, 1861)) July 6, 1861 in San Francisco by Starr King.
She was a sponsor of San Mateo County and was a dress maker in Redwood City. (published in the illustrated history of San Mateo County)

I have a copy of a book where he keeps a record of building materials and wages (1873-74).
I also have a copy of his funeral service that was a printed booklet.

My aunt has more information.  I was just curious and was “surfing the web” the other evening.

Blessings, Jane
