George Hosenfeld1

M, #4160, b. 1833, d. between July, 1870 and November, 1874
Father*Johann Andreas "Andrew" Hosenfeld1 b. 1802, d. July 5, 1873
Mother*Katherine Timmerling1 b. 1804, d. February 2, 1865
     George Hosenfeld, son of Johann Andreas "Andrew" Hosenfeld and Katherine Timmerling, was born in 1833 in Hesse, Germany.2,3
George married Virginia A. (?) circa 1864.3
George was a miner in 1870 at Amador County, California. Amador County was the home of the Kennedy Gold Mine named for Andrew Kennedy, an Irish immigrant, who reportedly discovered a quartz outcropping in the late 1850's near what is now Highway 49. The Kennedy Mining Company was formed in 1860 when he and three partners began digging shafts near today's mine property entrance. The mine operated sporadically until it closed in 1878. In 1886 fifteen people invested $97,600 to reopen the mine under the corporate entity of the Kennedy Mining and Milling Company. (City of Jackson California web site: http://ci.jackson.ca.us/Information/mining_history.htm) The Kennedy Mine, famous for being one of the deepest gold mines in the world (at 5912 feet), demonstrates how gold changed an entire way of life in California. Although gold was known to be present and was mined by the Spanish and Mexicans, the California Gold Rush did not begin until after James Marshall's discovery of gold at Sutter's Mill in 1848. Between 1848 and 1858, California exploded from being a largely unpopulated agrarian state into a vital, fast growing and exciting part of the United States. Prospected in 1860, reorganized in 1886 and continuously run until 1942, the Kennedy Gold Mine produced approximately $34,280,000 in gold according to the CA Dept. of Conservation. One of the tallest head frames in existence today can be seen at the Kennedy Mine. The mine also had one of the largest stamp mills in the Mother Lode, moving tailings by means of huge wooden wheels, some of which are still standing. (Kenndy Gold Mine web site: http://www.kennedygoldmine.com.)3

Mother*Catherine Shakespeare2
Joseph Sainton
     Joseph Sainton, son of Joseph Sainton and Catherine Shakespeare, was born on March 3, 1878 in London, Middlesex, England.3,4,1,5,2
Joseph Sainton is the son of Joseph and Catherine Shakespeare Sainton. He was born in London, England on March 3, 1878. He has a twin sister Mary (called Polly) in England. She was, before the war, for some years companion to the sister of the poet and designer, William Morris, and lived with her in the famous “Red House”, Kelmscott Manor, in the upper Thames Valley. The house was built by local farmer Thomas Turner and remained in the family for many generations. After George Turner died in 1734, the house was rented out. The house was originally called Lower House, but became Kelmscott Manor when James Turner purchased 53½ acres of manorial land together with the lordship in 1864. Kelmscott Manor was the country home of the writer, designer and socialist William Morris from 1871 until his death in 1896. Today it is owned by the Society of Antiquaries of London, and is open to the public on Wednesdays and Saturdays during the summer.22
Kelmscot Manor

Joseph attended college at Leipzig Conservatory, Leipzig, Stadtkreis Leipzig, Saxony, Germany, in 1894. An excellent school of an essentially conservative outlook, the Leipzig Conservatory had a special appeal during the late 19th and early 20th centuries to British music students. Among the students were Sir Arthur Sullivan, Frederick Delius, and Sir Adrian Boult, who attended the Conservatory in 1912 and 1913. (http://www.npj.com/homepage/teritowe/jsbpdm04.html.)2

Joseph Sainton lived in 1897 Monte Carlo, Monaco.2
Joseph Sainton lived in 1897 Milan, Italy.2
While in Vienna he toured the Orient and South Africa. For a while he was the organist at Pretoria Cathedral. He then returned to Vienna where he played tge pano at cafes andas a rehersal accompanist of artists at the Opera.2
Joseph Sainton lived in 1898 Vienna, Wien, Austria.2 He moved circa 1899 to England from Vienna.2
During 1905 he toured South Africa as a pianist.5 He filed a Declaration of Intentions to become a citizen of the United States at New York County, New York, between 1907 and 1924; declaration volume 378, page 172.6
Joseph was the conductor of the Brighton orchestra, leading the Brighton festival in 1909 and 1910 from 1908 to 1922 at Brighton, East Sussex, England.5
Joseph Sainton lived from 1911 to 1914 Brighton, East Sussex, England, on all three arrival records at Ellis Island his residence was shown as Brighton, England so probably the last arrival was his permanent arrival in the United States.4
Joseph Sainton immigrated on September 22, 1911 to Ellis Island, New York, New York County, New York, traveling On the ship Tennyson from Santos, Sao Paulo, Brazil (his residence was identified as Grighton, England.4
Ship Lusitainia

Joseph Sainton came to the United States in 1912 from Argentina. He had gone to South America from England to fill an engagement in Buenos Aires, and had the winter season there. After coming to New York, he was conductor for Henry W. Savage Opera companies, for the Aborns, for whom he directed the first performance in English of the opera “Hansel and Gretel”; on a coast-to-coast tour of the season 1914-15 with the DeKoven Opera Co. with Bessie Abbott the star in DeKoven’s “Robin Hood” and also personally rehearsed and directed several of Victor Herbert’s successes. He was for five years conductor of the municipal summer concerts at Lake Harriet in Minneapolis, where we were married on June 26, 1918.
The following biography of Joseph Sainton is taken from the Musical Times of London of June 1, 1909, where it appeared with a full page portrait:
“Joseph Sainton as a child was a boy chorister in London and at the Lichfield Cathedral, where he also became assistant organist at the age of 13. Later he was accompanist for the great singing teacher William Shakespeare in London; and obtaining the Mendelssohn Scholarship for the Konservatorium in Leipzig , Germany, he spent five years there, studying piano under Reinecke and Teichmuller, theory with Weidenbach and conducting with Nikisch. Upon leaving Leipzig he spent a year at Nice, Monte Carlo and Milan for further study, and afterwards toured the Orient and South Africa. He was for a while organist at Pretoria Cathedral, but soon after returned to Europe where he made a determined but unsuccessful attempt to establish himself at Vienna. Having played the piano at cafes, and obtaining small engagements as rehearsal-accompanist of artists performing at the Opera, after a year there became convinced that there was no hope for an English musician in the Austrian capital, so he returned to England. Upon arriving home, he was almost immediately engaged as conductor of touring opera companies, "The Belle of New York," “Floradora”, etc. and. during two winter seasons he was engaged as musical director at the Crystal Palace Theatre, where he wrote, arranged and conducted the music of two very successful ballets and pantomimes at Sydenham.
Mr. Sainton’s first appointment under a public body was that of Clacton-on–Sea; from there he went to Bridlington and finally was engaged at Brighton. It is quite certain that Mr. Sainton is the right man in the right place at the Queen of Watering Places”…. Mr Sainton is very happy at Brighton, where he has met with well deserved and continued success.
At Brighton the orchestra performs daily, every afternoon and evening in the Winter Gardens at the Aquarium, except on Wednesday evenings, when special symphony concerts take place in the Dome. The dome concerts on Wednesday evenings have obtained a great reputation, and
Many eminent composer, Elgar, German, Coleridge-Taylor, Sir Alexander MacKenzie, Cowan and others, have conducted programs of their own works at these concerts. Also many of the well known concert artists of Europe, including Paderewski, Kreisler, Zimbalisat, de Pachman and others, appear as soloists, playing concertos with the orchestra; and in addition to conducting, Mr. Sainton occasionally plays concertos and piano-forte solos himself.”
The Brighton Festival Chorus and Orchestra of 500 performers had the honor of giving a command performance of Verdi’s “Requiem” under his direction at Queen's Hall in London in January, 1911 and they were a specially engaged also to give a concert at St. James’s Hall in London.
The culminating point up to the present time in their history is the recent musical Festival – perhaps the first initiated by a municipal body in this country- the great success of which is fresh in the minds of our readers.
The Festivals inaugurated by Mr. Sainton drew to Brighton critics from the London papers and artists and music lovers from all over England. There were interesting conferences over the first production of works by Paderewski, Sir· Edward Elgar, Edward German, Sinding of Norway and other great composers, who would go over the manuscripts with the conductor, indicating tempi and various points of interpretation.
After the concerts there were always gay suppers, sometimes at Mrs. Willett’s where Mr. Sainton lived. Mrs. Willett was a wealthy widow, who had a beautiful villa at Hove , on the ocean front nearby, and usually in the winters she would go to the Riviera, transporting a retinue of servants and her own horses and carriage. When Mr. Sainton went to Brighton, he found that a protege of Mrs. Willett’s, Clement Harvey, was living there. They had been students together at Leipzig, he being a talented pianist and they had been great friends as students.
Mrs. Willett invited Sainton to share Halvey's quarters at her house, and turned over to them an entire wing and servants at their command (also carte blanche with the Wine cellar.) In London he was many times at Beecham's house for musical evenings. The magnate's son (Beecham's Pink Pills for Pale People! … later, Sir Thomas Beechem, was then a dilettante in music. He became serious about it, so serious that that he has since become quite successful as a conductor, after spending most of his vast fortune in supporting orchestras so that he could learn to conduct them.
Mr. Sainton’s student days in Leipzig, he has often said, were the happiest of his early life.. Germany was a fine country to live in, in those days, and one could live well on a mere pittance, with concerts galore (at low admittance prices) and everything to make life enjoyable. In Leipzig was perhaps the finest orchestra in the world at the time, the Gewandhaus, and conducted by Arthur Nikisch, the greatest conductor of his day, who succeeded Mendelssohn. Joe has told me how as a boy of 16 he arrived in Leipzig early one evening a stranger, to find that every seat for the evening's concert was sold; so he with several other boys determined to hear the concert, succeeded in getting in the stage door and with the help of a kindly attendant soon found. Themselves perched up in the organ loft among the pipes, where they had splendid view of both conductor and orchestra! What a thrill for a future conductor! "
In those glorious days, Germany was a heaven on earth for students, artists, and ,anyone lucky, enough to be there; one could live very well on a very small income, and boys on scholarship usually did have just that. A comfortable room with breakfast he had for about four marks (about one dollar) per week; and for another four marks, a good piano for practicing.
Late in the afternoon, they always went for coffee to the cafes, a favorite one was the Conditori (confectionery shop) on the Augustus Platz, and how those hungry boys would gorge on the huge pieces of many varieties of rich Torte; and after evening concerts everyone went to the big beer gardens, the Café bauer usually, where an orchestra would be playing and there would be dancing and much beer drinking and singing, interspersed with serious music discussions, and the merriment usually went on until late at night. In the summer and on holidays, there were glorious boat- trips up the Rhine; and down the Elbe from Dresden by river boat to Pilnitz and Shandau; and the walking tours, large groups of students with knapsacks on their backs, not much money in their pockets, but happy and gay as the birds, real "student princes!"
Many years later, in Toledo, we were invited one evening to a party to meet a Mme. Ninon Romaine, and when we arrived, Joe was amazed to find that she was the same Romaine Curry who had been with him as a student at Leipzig, and with whom he had spent many happy evenings at her apartment with her mother and sister also, who had accompanied her to Germany. It was the same sister who was our hostess of the evening, and Mme. Romaine was a renowned concert pianist, who had had a successful career in Europe and was in private life the Baroness Zimmerman. She died a few years later in India of smallpox, while on a trip around the world.
In Toledo, besides the Philharmonic Orchestra, Joe conducted the Mozart Choir for five seasons, and also produced many light operas with the finest local talent available. Among the later were were: M'lle Modiste, Naughty Marietta, The Firefly, The Red Mill, Katinka, Robin Hood, The Yeomen of the Guard, Pinafore and the grand opera, Cavalleria Rus ticana. In 1932 at the Theatre of the University of Toledo, under the sponsorship of the Toledo University Club, he was general musical director for the world premiere of “Cyrano de Bergerac”, with music by Samuel Pokrass, the score arranged for orchestra by Sainton, and George Houston, famous star of stage and screen, as the Cyrano. Charles Locke, who arranged the lilbretto from the play by Rostand, was stage director.
The Mozart Choir, with large chorus and orchestra, through the years under the direction by Sainton, produced the following great works with success: the Marzo “Vespers”, Haydn's “The Seasons”, the great Verdi “Requiem”, Rossini’s “Stabat Mater”, Elgar's “Dream of Gerontius” and Beethoven’s· “Missa Solemnis.” With an augmented chorus , soloists from Chicago, including the tenor Eugene Dressler, and large orchestra, half of which was composed of members of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, he produced for the opening of the new cathedral, the beautiful Oratorio by Sir Edward Elgar, “The Dream of Gerontius”, the poem by Cardinal Newmen, the performance took place in the Sanctuary of the Cathedral, the stands for the singers were built where the altar was placed later. This was spring of 1931.
Earlier in the season 1926-27, we had a most interesting winter in Tampa, Florida, where Joe was Municipal Director of Music. Various artists were engaged by him as soloists for the series of Symphony Concerts he conducted, among them the beautiful Marie Novello came from London (she was the sister of Ivor Novello, handsome star of stage and screen, and talented composer of popular songs known the world over, one of which was “Keep the Home Fires Burning.” She was a marvelous pianist and a very charming person, and enjoyed great success.
Coe Glade was living in Tampa then, a beautiful and talented girl of about twenty. We met her one evening at a studio party given by an operatic impresario, soon after she was engaged by the San Carlo Opera Company, and travelled with them for the season, the following spring she was again in Tampa to be with her mother, and we had gay rounds of musical affairs. She was then studying the role of Carmen, and later when she was engaged by the Chicago Opera Co. she was acclaimed the “greatest Carmen in the world.”
In 1922-23 we lived in Detroit for a year, where Joe was conductor of the orchestra at one of the downtown movie houses. In those days, the movies were “silent” and the conductor had to arrange his own scores to fit each picture show. This was a terribly wearing job, and we were glad after a year of living in Detroit to go to California where we had a house in Coronado and Joe opened a studio across the bay in San Diego . Before we left that spring, of 1922, Pauline Cole was married to Robert A. Amunson and we gave them a wedding breakfast at our apartment.2

Queens Hall: Her Majesty Queen Victoria in person opened the Queen's Hall at the People's Palace for East London, in the Mile End Road, in May 1887; - the Jubilee year. It derives its name from the fact that there are statues all round the building at the Queens of England, by Mr F. Verheyden. The architect of the Hall was Mr. E. R. Robson. It is used for public meetings, concerts, occasional loan exhibitions of pictures, etc and contains a fine organ. (http://www.victorianlondon.org/ql/queenslondon175.htm.)

The Crystal Palace was designed by Joseph Paxton architect, at London, England, 1851, moved 1852, burnt 1936: Built out of prefabricated and wrought-iron elements and based on a four-foot module, this 1,848-foot-long ferro-vitreous construction was erected to the designs of Joseph Paxton and Charles Fox, of Fox, Henderson & Co. Its interior volume was organized into galleries which were alternately 24 feet and 48 feet wide. The roof of these galleries stepped up by 20 feet every 72 feet and culminated in a central nave 72 feet wide. The 'ridge and furrow' roof glazing system specially devised for the occasion required 49-inch glass sheets capable of spanning between furrows 8 feet apart, with three ridges occurring every 24 feet." (www.greatbuildings.com/buildings/Crystal_Palace.html )
After the Great Exhibition closed, the Crystal Palace was moved to Sydenham Hill in South London and reconstructed in what was, in effect, a 200 acre Victorian theme park. The new Crystal Palace park at Sydenham was opened by Queen Victoria on June 10th, 1854.
In 1911, the year of King George V's coronation, the Crystal Palace was home to the Festival of Empire. Three-quarter size models of the parliament buildings of Empire and Commonwealth countries were erected in the grounds to contain exhibits of each country's products.
In later years, the Crystal Palace became very closely associated with the development of television when John Logie Baird established his television company here. Based in the south tower (which also served as an aerial), the Palace itself and other buildings in the grounds, from June 1934 the Baird Television Company had 4 fully equipped studios at Crystal Palace. In 1935 transmission of 120 line pictures were demonstrated and a high definition picture of 500 lines was also shown. In 1937 Baird even demonstrated the color television, using a radio link from the south tower to the Dominion Theatre in London. The picture was clear on a 12ft by 9ft screen.
