I suppose you are familiar with Bale Grist Mill State Historic Park with the
mill that was built by Dr. Bale (see: _
( ) Perhaps the State Park system might
have information about family members that sold or donated the mill to the
State Park system?

Once again I am putting out a call for help. It has been over a year since
last put out this request for help. Hopefully someone who is new to this
list might be able to help.

I am trying to contact people that might be related to Dr. Edward Turner
Bale who was born in England around 1810 and died in Napa, County,
California, 9
October 1849. He is my paternal gggrand-father.

Bale is the son of John Bale and Ann Turner, who were married in
England, in 1793. I believe their son, E. T. was born near Manchester,
England around 1810. He is said to have arrived in California around 1837.
How he
arrived is is one of the many unknowns about Dr. Bale.

He married Maria Soberanes in Monterey, Mexico (California) in March 1839.
They had six children. Their eldest son, Edwardo Guadalupe Bale had
children, all born in Northern California. E. G. Bale died 16 Oct 1906 in
Sonoma County, CA. As far as I can tell none of his decedents are still in
Healdsburg area of Northern California.

Dr. Bale's eldest child, Maria Isadora Bale, who was also known as Lolita,
was my ggrandmother. She married Louis Bruck, of Bremen, Germany, and they
eight children. My grand-father was their sixth child and son.

I am working on the family genealogy and I would like to get in touch with
any of Dr. Bales descendants.
