  • Notes 
    • Oscar came to California in 1943. His wife was still living in 1977. He died as a result of a fall out of a bus door.

      Research: Merrill Anderson shows Oscar's birthdate as Jan 1896. Appears to be taken from the 1900 census listing. 1920 census shows Oscar still living at home.
