Los Angeles Times, Oct 3, 1924:

WOMAN DIES OF BURNS IN FLAME FROM CIGARETTE

Mrs. Mary Carbajal, 38 years of age, of 2907 Auburn avenue, was fatally burned yesterday when a cigarette she was smoking ignited her dress. Mrs. Carbajal was at the home of her sister, Mrs. Germanica Montez, of 2851 Rowena avenue. A spark ignited her dress, she became panicky and raced outside. There the breeze fanned the flames and before they could be smothered Mrs. Carbajal had been so badly burned that she died last night at the General Hospital.

Mrs. Montez, in trying to beat the fire out with her hands, was also slightly burned. She, too, was treated at the Receiving Hospital.

Looking for info on Mary Carbajal....who was her husband, did she have children?

G.Montez is my GGrandmother.
Are there any Carbajal descendents?
Thank you!
