1891 · Angel Island Serves as Quarantine Station

Angel Island served as a quarantine station for those diagnosed with bubonic plague beginning in 1891. A quarantine station was built on the island which was funded by the federal government at the cost of $98,000. The disease spread to port cities around the world, including the San Francisco Bay Area, during the third bubonic plague pandemic, which lasted through 1909.

Name Meaning

Americanized form of French Jouy (or its variant Jouis): habitational name from Jouy, a placename derived from Latin Gaudiacum ‘estate of Gaudius’, from the personal name Gaudius + the locative suffix -acum. The surname was brought to North America from Germany, and the initial J- was altered to Sh- according to German pronunciation.

History: This surname, which was brought to PA from Germany in the middle of the 18th century, is listed along with its original forms Jouis and Jouy in the (US) National Huguenot Society's register of qualified Huguenot ancestors.
