In Reply to: McMahon Family (some names unknown) by Sonja Bittner of 1914

renting on ?gault? los angeles 1930 leslie, b ny, is a feeder at a dairy ranch. gertrude says her dad b ny, mom germany, and joy, who is 9, was b ny, so they came between 1921 and 1930.
Leslie A Wood 36 Los Angeles (Districts 0501-​0750),
Gertrude Wood 38
Joy E Wood 9
it would appear that margaret mcmahon was there with them, in los angeles. it would also appear that her maiden name was hoffman, that she died in 1951, and that she is buried in forest lawn with her son/law, leslie ami wood, and his second wife, ada merrit wood. have not yet located gertrude; but as she does not seem to be on the california death index which starts 1940, perhaps her death date 1930-1940. (or i may have missed her)
