Thanks so very much for all your efforts. I do appreciate that you're willing to look for my/our ancestors in Humboldt County.
My ancestors came to the Humboldt County area around 1899, and were listed in Hydesville during the 1900 census.
Of specific interest is Sarah H. WARD Temple, who is shown in Hydesville with the family during the census, but by December of 1901, is not listed as a surviving child (with her brother William J Ward and sister Julia Ward Pennington) in her mother Emeline's obit (see below obituary). Do any records show that Sarah married or died in Humboldt County between the date of the 1900 census and December 1901?

Thanks so very much!
