Isle of Pines, Cuba:
Around 1909 Eva's parents, and several of her siblings, moved to the Isle of Pines in Cuba.
She met Anton Julius Winblad (1885-1975) on a trip back from Cuba and married him on April 17, 1910 in Farmingdale, Long Island.
Together they had the following children: Norman Edward Winblad (1911-1980) who was born in Cuba and married Eleanor Frieda Vogsberger (1911-1975) on his return to New York; Anthony LeRoy Winblad (1912-1970) aka Roy Winblad, who was born in Cuba and married Eleanor Frieda Vogsberger (1911-1975) when he returned to New York; and Earl Vincent Winblad (1916-2004) who was born in the Bronx, New York and married June Amanda Salisbury (1912-2003).
Isle of Pines, Cuba:
Julia Lattin (1880-1960) wrote the following in 1960: "In the year (1909) my parents moved to the Isle of Pines, just south of Cuba, which was populated at that time by 90% Americans. They had expected that the United States would take it over, but several years later it was turned over to Cuba. My parents (Jarvis Andrew Lattin and Mary Jane Puckett) celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary (October 15, 1924) there, and my sister Eva, [Earl Winblad,] and I made them a surprise visit [and returned from Havana, Cuba aboard the Ship 'Siboney' on November 08, 1924]. They were so happy to see us. The boat made only two trips a week between Cuba and the island. We had our luggage inspected in Havana and spent one night there. It took about two hours to cross Cuba by train, and the boat was waiting for us. It was just an overnight trip to the Isle of Pines, and it was so calm there was hardly a ripple on the water. But we did experience a very bad hurricane while there. Every one boards up their windows when they see the storm approaching. After Cuba took over the island, many of the Americans left and went back to the States as my parents did."
Bronx, New York:
Eva returned to the US on July 06, 1915 after her in-laws died in Norway. She took her two brothers with her back to New York: Theodore and Dewey and they all moved to the Bronx. In 1930 the family was living at 422 Mott Avenue in the Bronx and Anton was working in a plumbing store. Anton also worked as a building superintendent perhaps for the Mott Avenue building.
Fredrick Andrew Williams (1923- ) writes about the family moving to California: "The first of our family to California were my father and mother: Charles Haley Williams (1884-1960); and Myrtle Adelia Lattin (1884-1970) and my grand-dad Fredrick Howard Williams. They went to California as speculators in 1921 and my father bought a farm there. Fredrick Howard Williams, bought a piece of land in Burbank, California where he grew walnuts. Eva Ariel Lattin came to California, by ship, to visit in 1933 on the Panama Pacific Line. I was 10 years old at that time. She was on a cruise and stopped to see my parents. She went back to New York and then the whole [Winblad] family moved to California around 1936. Eva and Anton Winblad lived on 419 West 77th Street, Los Angeles, California. Later they moved out in the desert near a city called 29 Palms. Norman, his son, settled in Baldwin Park. Eva died in 1939. Anton Winblad was a plumber, and Earl Winblad was a boilermaker. Both worked in the shipyards in Long Beach, California. Earl bought a home in Carson, California and he and June Salisbury have been there ever since. Earl was in the Army, and I served in WWII. The Winblads and Lattins failed on their farms in Cuba because of the lack of refrigeration in shipping their produce to the US. Fredrick Howard Williams decided to grow walnuts because they didn't need to be refrigerated."
She died on June 23, 1939 in Fontana, San Berdino County, California.
She was buried in Inglewood Park Cemetery, Inglewood, Los Angeles County, California.
