My husband’s second great-grandfather on his father’s side, David THALER, was born on March 10, 1840, in Bayern, Germany to Johannis THALER and Maria Eva WEIGEL. David died August 1918 in San Luis Obispo, California, USA. I forget the exact details, but David THALER’s name is mentioned in one of the stories on a wall inside the Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa. He was one of the key helpful Caucasian men in the earlier days at the mission.
My husband’s second great-grandmother on his father’s side, Hannah A. BLAKE, was born on July 9, 1858, in California (possibly in Napa) to Ander (or Andrew Jackson) BLAKE (May 5, 1826-September 13, 1900) and Elizabeth (February 4, 1841-October 21, 1901). Hannah died January 4, 1919 in San Luis Obispo, California, USA.
Below is what can be found in the 1900 United States Census for this couple and their family. It shows that they had a six-year-old lodger whom I cannot figure out. He is not in the 1910 Census with David and Hannah and the name is not familiar to me.
