Elvis Presley, Boss Tweed, Forbidden Suttee Share What? All three share an important newsworthy anniversary on December 4th.

Curious to know more about Elvis Presley, Boss Tweed, and Forbidden Suttee? Read on to find out about these and other interesting tales that happened in history on Dec. 4th.  

  •          1674 – Father Jacques Marquette founds a mission on the shores of Lake Michigan to minister to the Illiniwek natives. (The mission would later grow into the city of Chicago.)
  •          1786  Mission Santa Barbara in California is dedicated (on the feast day of Saint Barbara).
  •          1829 – In the face of fierce local opposition, British Governor-General Lord William Bentinck issues a regulation declaring that anyone who abets suttee (or sati) in Bengal is guilty of culpable homicide. Suttee is a funeral ritual within certain Asian communities whereby a recently widowed woman immolates herself, typically on her husband’s funeral pyre. Not all widows willingly participated. The practice remains an issue, as seen by the need for the Sati Prevention Act initiated in 1987 after the highly public sati of Roop Kanwar. 

While these interesting facts about Chicago, Santa Barbara and Forbidden Suttee on December 4th have nothing to do with my real estate business selling Silicon Valley homes to families in San Jose, Cupertino and Saratoga in Santa Clara County, Calif., they add fun and entertainment to life.

Hello Michelle - I do remember when Dianne Feinstein became San Francisco mayor --- forty-one years ago.  It is amazing how quickly time passes at times, isn't it?
