06-23 Holman, Holsman I am interested in finding out more about my ancestors, David Holman and Simonota (an Indian). According to my genealogy research they are my Great, Great Grandparents. They were married on Nov 17, 1859 in Shasta County, I've been searching for Simonota for years, I only recently learned her real Indian name. She also went by first name of Symatee or Symotee and Mattie. (After many years of research I hope that I'm now on the right track as Simonota attempted to hide the fact that she was Indian throughout her life.) They are listed in the 1860 census as Holsman, I also have some birth certificates and death certificates of their ancestors. Any help appreciated. Scott 12/17/06

06-18 Cozo, Smith, Southard I would like to get some information about Mary Elizabeth Smith and Grover Cleveland Southard. My father, Alvin Lee Cozo, told me that his mother married an Indian whose name is Grover Cleveland Southard. And they both died on June 7 or 8, 1987. I heard from my dad, that his mom had two sons, Alvin Lee Cozo and Larry Ray Cozo. My grandmother has a daughter who is not part of the family and I also would like information on her whereabouts; her name is Addie Mae Southard or Smith. Last time I heard was that she lived in Cottonwood California. She is my aunt and I would like information about her. Thank you. Marie 09/13/06
06-17 Deay, Swanson, Tenneson I am searching for the grandparents of my two granddaughters. Their father never knew his family, and it is believed that their father's 'aunt' is Shirley. Therefore, since not knowing the family, I need to locate Shirley's brothers and sisters. Shirley's father is a George Earl Tenneson who lived in Shasta County and also died there, I believe. Shirley married (1st) Emery Deay (spelling is correct) in 1956. She married (2nd) a Larry Swanson. Shirley Deay Swanson has told my granddaughter's father that she was his 'aunt.' Thank you. Joyce 09/13/06

06-15 Crosswhite, Curtis, Hardiman, McConnell I am researching the family of John N. Curtis (1833-1902) and Elizabeth G. Curtis (1840-?). Theire ldest child was Charles R. Curtis, born in Pennsylvania in January, 1862 and died between 1920 & 1930 in Norwalk, Los Angeles Co., CA. He married Lydia E. McConnell in Kansas and moved to California prior to the birth of their first child, Frank L. Curtis on March 3, 1893. Lydia died in San Joaquin Co., CA, on 20 Apr 1945

I believe, from the SSDI, that Charles and Lydia's fifth child, Harry E. Curtis, died in Redding, Shasta Co., CA, on 22 December 2002.

Charles and Lydia's children are:
  • Frank L. died in Calaveras Co., CA, on 23 Aug 1945
  • Ida M. married a Hardiman and died in Los Angeles on 27 Dec 1972.
  • Minnie E. Nellie Adeline married a Crosswhite and died in San Bernardino Co., CA, on 20 Jun 1980
  • Harry E. Charles Andrew died in Los Angeles on 8 Jan 1996.
I would appreciate any information regarding the Curtis family in California. I am compiling information on this family to support my cousin, James Lee Curtis, who is looking for potential family members. He has little information about his grandfather's family as his grandfather was estranged from his parents at an early age.

I sent this message to Pamela L. Curtis-Goring from the surname list, but her email address is now invalid. Regards.

06-12 Leonard, Trewartha I noticed someone was looking for the Trewartha family back on this list in 2004. My grandmother, Cora Leonard, was married to Joseph Trewartha whose uncle(?) owned the drugstore in Kennett. They were married in Kennet where her father, Lewis Leonard, had a plumbing business. Joe died within a very few years. I think Joe is buried in Sonora. I'd like to know what ever happened to a Leonard daughter named Ella. Apparently, after the mine closed, the economy was not good and my Great Grandfather sold his homestead and moved to Oakland, where he too soon passed away. I tried to email the person inquiring about the Trewartha family, but the mail is returned. Kindest Regards. Sharon 05/25/06
