14-02 Frazier, Johnson John Edward Johnson (born 25 Jun 1912 in Logan Co Ohio and died 19 Nov 1978 in Shasta CA) was a public school teacher. We believe he might have retired to Shasta from the Los Angeles area after the death of his wife, Elizabeth J Frazier Johnson, born in North Dakota in 1915.

We have searched as many on-line posted obits for Shasta as found. We would like to know his Cemetery and any survivors if known. We know of no children born to he and Elizabeth. We have all pertinate ancestor history for John and Elizabeth. Only need info found after the 1940 census. No need of paper documents, that cannot be transmitted via e-mail. No need of any information purchased.

14-01 Benson, Enos, Hagler, Heglar, Nye, Reagan, Rickard I would like to know the names of the parents of Manuel Daniel Rickard. Born 1/20/1868 in Lewiston. Died 11/29/1955 in Redding. Wife was Annabell Reagan, died in 1923 in Igo, CA.

Their sons were:
  • Stanley Manuel
  • William Leslie
  • John Alle
  • Douglas Eugene
  • James Joseph
Their daughters were:
  • Alice
  • Mamie Cone
Manuel is buried in Pickney Cemetary, Igo. I think Maria (Enos) Rickard was Manuel's mother and that she was from the Azores. I also think his father was from the Azores and his first name was Joseph. Annabell's father was James Reagan from PA and mother I think, was Mary Hagler/Heglar, but some claim Dora Benson and some claim Sarah Nye from Ohio.
