Looking for any information on my late mother's paternal grandparents. Their names were Thaddeus A. Mason and Mattie Mason(her maiden name was Martha Richie and she was from
Newberg,New York) Would like to know their date of births, marriage and his date of death. I already know that she died March 21, 1917 but not sure if it was in Grass Valley, or in
San Francisco as she is buried in Colma. Thank you!

Dug around a little and came up with following as possible fill for a family tree:

Based on below extracts it appears that Thaddeus Mason, was born about 1840, and Martha (Mattie) Richie, was born about 1844. They had at least 2 children by 1880, a daughter Mary A, born about 1871 in CA, and a son. Henry R, born about 1874 in CA. Found no sign of these family members in 1900 census.

In 1910 found Henry R and (presumably) his son Wilber H, born about 1903 in CA member of his widowed bother-in-law's household in San Francisco Bother-in-law is Arthur F Nicoll, born about 1876. In same household is Arthur Fís widowed sister, Emily Nicoll.

Working back to 1900, found Emily as head of San Francisco household which included Arthur and 3 sisters, Theresa, Adele and Agatha. CADI indicates a 4th sister, Emily Mary. Assuming no remarriages, CADI would also indicate Adele was likely deceased wife of Henry R.

It appears Thaddeus and Mattie were divorced before 1910 census.
