George & James L. Fozard of ENG,CA & NY

I am researching the ancestors and descendants of George FOZARD, b. in Eng. about 1855/57. He m. Emma TULLOCH in Oakland, Alameda Co., CA on 10 of Aug. 1878. They had 2 children: Karie Mae (Jessie May) b. 1879 and James Learned (or Leonard) b. 1881. James Learned FOZZARD studied mining engineer at U.C. Berkeley at the turn of the century and worked for the J. Lane Mining Co. in CA, ID and AZ, where he died in 1944. He was listed in Who's Who in America in the until his death. He married Marion, possibly in NY. They had two children, a boy, James L. Jr., (who had two girls and a boy and lived in Boston in 1973) and a girl, Jane, who, I think, m. someone whose last name was Miller. Marion wrote every Xmas until her death, sometime in the 1970's. She would send a Kodak family photo Christmas card of her grandchildren. All of them lived back east. I have a picture of Marion taken in 1973 in Boston with Jim's children. I also have pictures of James, Marion, Jane and Emma when they visited James' older sister, Jessie FOZARD around 1920 in CA. Jessie had m. George Washington Hamilton in Oakland, CA in 1900 and lived on a ranch on the Westside, in Stanislaus Co., CA. George and Emma TULLOCH FOZARD lived in Sonora, CA with Emma's parents, James and Jane TULLOCH, a few years after their marriage. He was listed as a mining engineer for her father's mine in the 1880 Census. They were div. Dec. 28, 1883 in Sonora, Tuolumne Co., CA. Emma m. Jessie SELLS of Sonora, CA. after the divorce. George FOZZARD was living in Oakland, CA at the time. He was listed in the 1890 Oakland directory as working at the Contra Costa Laundry as a polisher. He disappears at this point and is not heard from again. Does anyone know what happened to George FOZARD and who his parents were or from where in England he came? Does anyone know where the descendants of James L. FOZARD live? FOZARD is sometimes spelled FOZZARD. Any information would be appreciated.
