I am trying to find out some more information about the fate of a Clara Elizabeth Thornhill, born England abt. 1879.
She arrived in California c. 1889-91, under the care of a Dr John W Hood and his partner Effie Afton Hassler.
In 1892 Secretary Theobald of The Humane Society removed Clara from their household due to allegations of maltreatment.
I 'think' I have located Clara on the 1900 Oakland roll, a 'Roomer' in the household of Clarence J. Gray. And again in 1903, a 'domestic' resident at 429 Vernon.
Then my trail runs cold.
Does anyone know what happened to Clara?
Thanking you in advance, kind regards, Anne (in Australia)
