James C. Facey Hazeltine C. Burch Facey
James Charles Facey and his wife Hazeltine Catherine Burch Facey and their nine
children arrived in California from Missouri about 1874.
They settled in northern California in Modoc and Siskiyou counties and on
August 24, 1888 they patented 152.53 acres near Callahan, CA.
By this time their family had then grown to twelve children, seven sons
and five daughters, all of whom became lifelong residents of Siskiyou and
James Facey was born January 25, 1834 in Devonshire, England. He traveled with his parents to Toronto, Canada at the age of three. He attended school there until his father died and he then went to work to help support his mother. His parents were James Facey and Susanna Griffen. At the age of 24 he moved to Lewis County, Missouri with his mother and he engaged in farming. It was in Missouri that he was naturalized. He married a neighborhood girl, Hazeltine Catherine Burch, in Missouri when she was but 15 years of age. On April 30, 1864 to March 12, 1865 he served for the Union in Company D, 69 Missouri Militia. He entered service at LaGrange, Missouri. Years later, after his death, Catherine applied for a military pension but it was denied because this Company of Missouri volunteers was not recognized as an official branch of the Union army. Information on the application states that he stood 5 feet 6 inches tall and had a dark complextion and blue eyes. After the war they traveled to California to start life anew as did so many from Missouri who were tired of friction caused by the "War between the States".
