If this is a good connection based on other information you have, reply to this message and I will transcribe the remaining bio information. I am not related to this family and have no other information about them. I'm just making the most of a $2.00 buy on eBay... If this helps you, please "pay it forward" by helping another researcher.

Kern Co. what state? Is the date 05 Sept 1925 the date of their marriage? Or Jane's dob? I'm thinking it must be the date of their marriage because I didn't think Jane was that much older than Frank. You may reply directlly to me if you like <mhoelter@hal-pc.org>. Am anxious to hear from you.
A blessed holiday season to you and yours.

I apologize for not replying sooner.

Kern County is in central California, with the largest city and county seat being Bakersfield.

The Who's Who book lists the date of marriage if it was provided by the bio subject (in this case, Frank Baumgart).
