  • Notes 
    • Family legend has it that the Lemons were of Swedish descent. Alice died of measles and consumption (Tuberculosis) two months after moving to Los Angeles. The family was living in Boyle Heights (off Mission Road) at the time. Alice had a sister who moved in and took care of her children after her death.

      Research: Unable to locate her grave in Los Angeles. Family rumor has it that she was buried in Arkansas. Ray Mendenhall says she was buried in East Los Angeles, possibly in Calgary Cemetary. George says she is buried in Evergreen Cemetary in East Los Angeles. Her death certificate lists “Howry & Peck” as the undertakers. That firm disolved in August of 1887, five months after her death. We could find no burial records from that time period for Evergreen Cem., although there was a “potters field” there.

      The marriage license lists her as “Miss Eudora Lemon”
