Flora Mae Shinn was born December 18th, 1875 to Heman Doyle Shinn and Emma Sophia Tock. What follows is a biographical sketch taken from The Shinn Blue Book by Marilyn Detert Thompson and Claire Sheehan Shinn, pub. 1976:

"Always known as Mae, she was the oldest child of Heman and Emma Shinn and was born on the ranch on December 18th 1875. Her education included attending Woodbridge College.

She married George Mason Bancroft on June 2nd, 1902. He worked on various locations away from Woodbridge, and during the years that their three children, Raymond Elwood, Elizabeth Mae, and Clarence Mason were growing up and attending school, the family traveled back and forth between the job site and Woodbridge. On these trips to the desert, Mae would help out by cooking for the work crew. When the children were older and needed to settle down and attend high school, the family lived in Woodbridge, right across the street from Woods school.

Mae was a member of the Woodbridge Order of the Eastern Star and the Woodbridge Rebekahs.

She suffered throughout her life from severe asthma. In her later years, she lived in Lodi with her daughter, Elizabeth.

Mae was a kind person and all the family loved her. She died in Lodi in 1945, at the age of 69 and is buried in Lodi Memorial Cemetery."
