Wow, thank you so much for finding these items for me! Lots of good info, including the (probable) married name of Inez Springer. And I think you are right, the Voter's Reg. Book probably was prepared ahead of time so had Fred listed.
Interestingly, the CA death Index had other relatives from a completely unrelated family on the same image, so a double thank you!
This is a good lesson in checking out a lot of websites- although Ancestry.com supposedly has has the CA death Index Fred Springer never came up in my searches, and Inez's engagement did not either although Ancestry does have some of newspaperarchives database.
