I looked on the Placer County Library website but didn’t find anything about genealogy. I’ll be happy to pay for the copying. Anything you can do will be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Nancy Protzman - Bronxville NY

11-09 Holmes, Strange Trying to find descendants of Edward Dean Strange, who died June 2010 in Auburn (buried in the Newscastle Cemetery) and resided in Penryn, Placer Co.

He was born in Corvallis Oregon in 1925. His mother, Mildred Marguerite "Molly" Holmes Strange, is related to my husband through her mother, Henrietta Amelia Cook Vroman Holmes.

I have a few old photographs of the Holmes family while they resided in Corvallis, Oregon. Would appreciate any information. Thank you.

I believe he died 1930-1940 in Placer County. I would like to find out when he died and what cemetery he is buried in. Benny 04/10/11

He was living in Roseville, Placer County in 1916 and working for the Southern Pacific Railroad. I have the census records for 1920 stating that he signed up for the WWI draft in Placer County. He married Clarissa Kaiser in 1924. He was an engineer for the Southern Pacific for many years eventually moving to Sacramento where he died in 1953. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
