Beatrice B. R. Ceiley 3

  • Born: 1884, Hobart, , Tasmania, Australia 1
  • Marriage: Orion Batz 1 2
  • Died: 1976, Danville, Contra Costa, California, USA aged 92 1

  General Notes:

No matter where she lived, San Francisco, Grass Valley or Walnut Creek, all in California, she would immerse herself in Bible studies, conducting readings at her home or at church, usually with ladies of her age, people the rest of the family never knew.

At Bea's funeral, among the mourners, there was a large number of ladies Bea's age, some slightly younger. I, my brothers and my dad, had never met them. We were told that those women had been part of the group that Bea had led through years of Bible studies wherever she lived. 4

  Noted events in her life were:

She appeared as a Scholar on the census in 1891 in Great Yarmouth, , Norfolk, England. 3

She appeared as a Cashier on the census in 1901 in Hammersmith, , Middlesex, England. 5

She appeared on the census in 1910 in San Francisco, San Francisco, California, USA. 2

She worked as a Clerk/Accountant in Bakersfield, Kern, California, USA. 6

She lived in Walnut Creek, Contra Costa, California, USA in 1974. 4

Beatrice married Orion Batz.1 2 (Orion Batz was born circa 1884 in Fort Wayne, Allen, Indiana, USA 2 6.)
