The following entry is interesting as it shows the families voting preference.

California, Voter Registrations, 1916-18.  By 1930 Royal was a 'well'  In 1932 he was retired.

By the time of the 1921 Voter Registrations William H had left home.

However, in 1934 he was living back with his parents at 3 Elk Grove occupation shown as 'wells'

1936 = not with his parents

1940 and 1942 William H was not with his parents but his wife was shown at Route 3 Elk Grove, and his parents at Route 2 Elk Grove.

FRANCES CUMPSTON

 

This is an Oral History of Frances Cumpston (77), Non-Nikkei, widowed and native of Florin .

 

She has good relationships with people and especially is a good neighbor and friend to Japanese Americans, before, during and after WW II.

 

She was one of the very few present at the train depot when all Japanese Americans departed for the Relocation Centers. Parts of the text are more of a candid discussion between the people present & interviewer, interviewee, Percy Nakashima and his wife, Aileen. Frances mentions the positive influence of husband, Bill, their parents, relatives and the local Methodist Church . There is a brief discussion of pro and con about Redress.
