Thanks for stopping by.  Do come again:)

Info from Iggy:
Cecelia is the mother of Adrianne Williams. In 1930 they were living in Oakland, Alameda, California.

Adrianna's father, Robert Barker Williams (b. 14 Apr 1860 in Virgina) died 8 Apr 1929 and is interred in the San Francisco National Cemetery. He was a medical doctor that practiced homeopathic and other forms of alternative medicine. He died of heart disease. He was a Major in the US Army and served in Hawaii.

His Find A Grave Memorial# 3546125.

Celia F. Williams was b. 4 Apr 1874 and d. 23 Oct 1964 in Alameda County, CA. She is also buried in the National Cemetery.

Adrianna was b. 8 Aug 1897 in Hawaii and died on 12 Feb 1978 in Alameda County, CA. In 1940, she was a Bacteriologist. She appears to have never married.

There are 4-5 Mrs. Prescott's living in the Oakland, Alameda County area at the time of this photo - so its anyone's guess as to which one she was...

  1. https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XCXZ-QTB shows Cecelia is the mother of Adrianne Williams. In 1930 they were living in Oakland, Alameda, California. I think one of your blog readers is active there just now. :)

    Adrianne was born in Hawaii c. 1900.

  3. Oh, I wish I knew this sooner...I was just there yesterday! I'll have to dig through some of my files and see if I can find anything, since I've done a bit of Alameda County research lately.

    I was going to say...I wish I could see more of that house...and what a hat that mama is wearing...but then I saw Iggy's note, and right now, I just want to stop talking about it and get to work to see if I can find anything more!
