Building History

Merrit H. Weed, (born 09/1848 in East Smithfield, PA), lived at 1919 Sacramento Street in 1900 with his wife of 19 years, Minnie (born 04/1864 in CA), and their three children, James (born 07/1883 in MO), Harold L. (born 08/1885 in CA), and Dorothy H. (born 09/1893 in CA). The Weeds also employed two servants, Lizzie Moran (born 06/1873 in Ireland) and a man named Suiq (spelling probably wrong) Lee (born 10/1868 in China). In 1880, Weed worked as a Deputy County Clerk in San Francisco, CA. In 1890, he worked at the California Sugar Refinery owned by Claus Spreckels. The Reid Brothers worked extensively with the Spreckels Family and probably recommended them to Weed.
