In Memoriam: James Owen Schuyler, 1924-2018

James Owen ("Jim") Schuyler, a past president of CGS, passed away April 2, 2018 at the age of 93. 

Jim joined the California Genealogical Society in 1975 and served as Society President in the 1990s, when he was instrumental in supporting the creation of the Sherman-Haughton Fund endowment. An active genealogist, Jim was also a member of the San Francisco Chapter Sons of the American Revolution, the Jamestowne Society, the Massachusetts Society of the Cincinnati, and the Mayflower Society.

Friends describe Jim as "smart, quirky, a consummate engineer and a devoted husband, a kind and loving father and a generous grandfather." He and his wife, Leose (nee Brown), shared a passion for genealogy and made many research trips together.

Jim's full obituary appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle and can be read online here.

A memorial service will be celebrated at 10:30 AM on Saturday, May 12, at The Church of the Epiphany, San Carlos.
