Hi Lisa, thanks for writing. Yes, yours is a Raymond line I'd be very interested in. In my database, I have a "Roy L. Raymond" as I read the 1910 census, son of Nathaniel L. Raymond. That's apparently your Ray Leslie Raymond. Although I also see him as Leslie Ray Raymond in the California index. So Ray was his actual first name?
If you could share a file with me of descendants of Nathaniel, I'd be grateful. Feel free to write me directly at Raymondhow@aol.com
Raymond B. Howard
