Hi Pam,
I found the Julian Family Tree, which contains the family members you mentioned.

Thomas Stephen Julian was b. 1814 Lanivet, Cornwall, England and died 1851 Grass Valley, Nevada, CA.

His wife was Christian Roberts b. 17 Nov 1822, England.

Their child was Stephen Thomas Julian b. 25 Oct 1849 in Warren, Jo Daviess, Illinois. He married, had a family and died 22 Dec. 1923 at 1817 S. Main, Rockford, Winnebago, Illinois.

Christian Roberts Julian married Elijah Deweitt Covill 9 Nov 1855 in Jo Daviess Co., Illinois.

Of course you don't want to enter the information from the family tree until you verify it.

Thomas Julian's death occurred one year after California became a state. I will be difficult to find a record.

First I'd visit Nevada County Lookups, . On the second and third pages you'll find a lot of books listed. Send an email to the volunteer and ask them to look it up in those books.

There are MANY historic cemeteries listed at

You can contact the Nevada County Clerk-Recorder's office, and ask if they have death records that old. If not, do they know where to find them.

The Doris Foley Library for Historical Research, is well known for their historical records. Their research fee is reasonable.

Also I searched and and didn't find his death info. Successful Searching!
