From Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo A& Ventura County biographies.
Thomas Saulsbury, a rancher of Santa Maria, was born in England in 1830. He began working in the coal mines at Oleburg, at nine years of age, continuing six years. He then worked in the iron factory and learned the trade of puddler. In 1848 he came to the United States, first settling in St. Louis, Missouri, where he worked at his trade, on the opening of the first iron factory in that city. He remained until 1852 when he came across the plains to California. He came with the freight train of Ben Holliday, as driver of a mule team, the train being loaded with whiskey, dry goods, and general merchandise. They landed at Sacramento, where Mr. Holliday established a store, and our subject remained with him for twelve years, much of the time being engaged in driving cattle from Salt Lake to California. At the time of the Mormon war, Mr. Holliday bought General Johnson's stock, consisting of 1,000 miles [mules], all of them being driven to California, in Mr. Saulsbury's care. In 1864 Mr. Saulsbury began farming in Alameda County where he bought land, and kept 100 head of cattle, remaining until 1873, when he came to Guadeloupe, and was one of the pioneers of that town. He bought 347 acres of land, and started the dairy business, keeping 75 cows, and making butter. He still owns the ranch, which rents with part of his stock. He and his sons also own a stock-ranch of 2,000 acres in the Cuyamaca country, where he raises horses and cattle. He is now renting a ranch of 160 acres near town, thus affording his children the advantages of the school; he and his sons plant 120 acres in beans.
Mr. Saulsbury was married in Alameda County, in 1860, to Miss Isabelle Randall, and they have eleven children.

A autobiography written by a David Salisbury dovetails into the Santa Barbara History account and adds this:
... So, my Father, Mother, two brothers and myself after bidding our kindred and friends good bye started for Liverpool. After staying there for two or three days getting our supplies and getting everything on board for our journey we bid adieu to our native land. We sang hymns and the sailors sang "Anchors Away" while the anchors were being raised. When we got to New Orleans we meant to look around. OUR VOYAGE Our ship's name was Commedow. There were 132 aboard including Captain Silvermaster, the crew and passengers. It was a sailing vessel. We encountered some rough weather while sailing through the Irish Channel. When we got through the channel we had fine sailing weather. During our voyage we had one sailor die and was buried in the ocean. During our voyage we caught a large shark. It caused quite an excitement on deck as the sailors landed him on the deck. The passengers had never seen such a large fish. We made the trip in 5 weeks and 3 days. They considered it a quick trip for a sailing vessel as it normally took them from 7 to 9 weeks on the water. One of the mates on the vessel was asking Father where he was contemplating to go. He told him he wanted to go to St. Louis, but it had taken more money to pay passage than he had expected. We would have to stay in New Orleans for a while until we could earn enough money to take us up the river. He said, "Mr. Salisbury, it will never do for you to stay in New Orleans. You will die with the yellow fever. I will loan you enough money to take you up the river to St. Louis." So, by that means we were able to pay our fare to St. Louis. In the fall of 1849 we arrived in St. Louis. There were quite a number of people we knew in England that had settled in St. Louis. Father rented a house and my two brothers and myself went to work in the rolling mills. We worked there all winter. We got along very well that winter. My brothers received good wages and I received $3.00 per week. It was quite a big difference compared to the $0.75 per week I was making in England. Provisions were very reasonable. In the summer of 1850 I worked in the brick yards and in the winter my brothers and myself worked in the Glass Works. My parents ran a boarding house for the hands that had worked in the Glass Works. As the Glass Works closed down in the spring we resided in St. Louis until the fall of 1851. My sister, Mary, was taken down with the cholera and died in a few hours. This was in St. Louis in the year 1850. My brother, Thomas, started to California in the spring of 1851 in the employ of Holaday and Warner Merchants. 
Saulsbury, Thomas (I824)
67 Spelling of Wereley from the Esther Froom Headstone Osnabruck, Stormont, Ontario, Canada Wereley, Peter H. (I83)
68 Switch to the Saulsbury tree to see ancestors of Richard Salisbury. Salisbury, Richard (I438)
69 Sydney was adopted by Emil and Elizabeth Curtis Biavaschi. Her biological mother was Alice Rose Rezzonico and her father's last name was Memmott. Biavaschi, Sydney Ann (I247)
70 The 1871 census lists Lavinia as wife. We don't know whether there was one marriage or two. The stone in North Channel Cemetery, Johnstown, Ontario, gives Abel Hawley's name followed by "wife Mahala 1815-1861."  Lavinia (I802)
71 The 1910 census places Ernville Froom in either an orphanage or group home on Ocean Avenue, Arroyo Grande, CA.
A 1924 steam ship manifest places him as a seaman aboard the British Steamship Santa Maria.
A 1930 manifest places him as a seaman aboard the Steamship James McGee.
The 1930 & 1940 census indicates he was single and places him in Lincoln, Lincoln County, New Mexico, USA. at the U.S. Marine Hospital No 9.
A Texas Death Certificate indicates Ernville had been living in Hugo, Choctaw County, Oklahoma, USA and died in Dallas, Dallas County, Texas, USA.
The death certificate was signed by his wife Mrs. Lucille Froom.  
Froom, Ernville (I234)
72 The Froom book shows Lizzie's last name as Ropheny. Research shows that her last name was actually, Smith. So was Ropheny a middle name?

Byron Spoon suggests...
The middle name Ropheny may be an adaptation of Ruphena/Rufina, wife of Cyrus Alexander. Cyrus Alexander was an early settler and large landholder in the Alexander Valley near Healdsburg. The Levi Smith family undoubtedly knew the Cyrus Alexander family because of residence location and family relationship, and possibly might have taken Cyrus’ wife’s given name for child Lizzie’s name. [Lizzie’s father Levi Smith was a brother to Achsah Smith Alexander and Achsah’s husband Charles Alexander was a nephew of Cyrus.] NOTE: This is an unproved conjecture by Charles Byron Spoon, descendent of these Smith and Alexander lines. 
Smith, Elizabeth L. (Ropheny) (I704)
73 There is conjecture as to whether Anna was born in Alameda County, California... or Guadalupe, Santa Barbara County, California. But records indicated the family moved to Guadalupe in 1873 so being born in October makes it highly likely Guadalupe was her birth place. Saulsbury, Anna Amelia (I236)
74 This area was first settled by members of Sir John Johnson's King's Royal Regiment of New York, and became Stormont County in 1792.

78 We can not at this time find a connection between this Ella A. Froom and any Froom in the James Froom Sr., lineage. Froom, Ella A. (I1046)
79 We found a listing in the Belvidere Cemetery, Belvidere, Illinois for John Carpenter Albright and Eliza White Albright which had the following information added by Find A Grave contributor Jim Albright #46773017.

81 We have no direct proof, that this Warren Irving Froom is the same Warren Froom from the Froom Book page 43. However the birth date (1887) is consistent with the birth date of the younger brother George L. (1889).  Froom, Warren Irving (I500)
82 We know Sydney's father was a Memmott but we're not sure which brother. Popular choice is Callie (1896-1959), but Ray McLain (1906-1978) is also a suspect. Memmott (I1695)

86 When Wesley's wife Hattie passed away in 1907 the family was turned on end.
Mabel and Allen moved in with their grandparents Thornton & Jane Froom in San Luis Obispo, CA,
Ellis was sent to an orphanage in Los Angeles, CA, and
Ernville was sent to either an orphanage or to a group home in Arroyo Grande, CA.
It should also be noted that with the exception of Ernville, all of the children died before reaching the age of 21. It is believed they all died of tuberculous.  
Froom, Wesley Urias (I229)
