|San Francisco County|
Pre-1905 Calif Death Index
San Francisco County is one of the original 27 counties. The sixth mission in California was established here by Padre Junipero Serra on October 9, 1776, and was named Mission San Francisco de Asis a la Laguna de los Dolores (Saint Francis of Assisi at the Lagoon of Sorrows). The mission is now known as "Mission Dolores." Territory which at one time was in San Francisco County is now in San Mateo County. Some of the water of San Francisco Bay which at one time was in San Francisco County is now in Marin County.
