Elva lived in Indiana most of her young adult life; however she had moved to California by 1914. She married golf instructor, George Espinoza, in 1914, and they had one daughter. In the 1930 Census, Elva is listed as married, but George is not shown as living at the residence. I believe they were either separated or possibly divorced. In the 1940 Census Elva and her daughter were listed as widows; however, George was alive and well and had remarried a lady named Edna Martini. Elva died in 1966. She is buried in California.

California death index has birth year as 1891
Memorial stone has her birth year listed as 1881

Elva was actually born in 1878. As you go through the Census records from the 1880 to the current one, Elva (along with some of her sisters) consistently shaved off a few years from their ages with each Census once they were married.
