Hello out there,
I am trying to find my wife’s Grandmother’s birth record in California
on July 25, 1897. She was born as either Marie Leah Hensley or Marie
Leah Martin. I am not sure of the way the name might be listed as she
was apparently born out of wedlock. Her mother’s name was Leah Marie
Martin and her biological father was listed on her death certificate as
“Unknown Hensley”. She was born in “California” according to her death
certificate. I was wondering if someone might direct me to a database
where I might find this birth information in hopes of uncovering the
mystery of Mr. Hensley.
We have been told that Marie, her mother Leah and Leah’s later husband
Frederick (Fred) Bernard Dunn were in San Francisco during the
earthquake in 1906. She (Leah) was listed in the Clarke County,
Washington Territory census in 1887 with her parents and I have not been
able to find anything on Marie or Leah from then until 1910 where they
both show up in the census in San Francisco with Leah married to Fred B
I would also like to find the record of Fred and Leah’s marriage if
possible. Fred lived with his parents in Boston MA in the 1900 census
and then showed up in San Francisco in the City Directory as a “marine
engineer” in 1907.
I will thank you in advance for any direction any of you may be able to
give me on this.
