|Bio and Links|
|I was born and raised in Tehama Co., in Northern California. I graduated from Red Bluff High School, Shasta College, and Chico State College. I retired from UC Davis in 2004 after almost 40 years service. I currently live in Carmichael, California with my beautiful wife of 5 years who humors and supports me in my genealogical passion.|
My Zumalt family came to California from Missouri via Idaho in the 1920's. My mother's paternal Mohr family settled in the Cottonwood area in the 1880's, her maternal family (Stavig/Emerson/Gould) came from South Dakota in 1900 to settle in the Sharon Fruit Colony at Jelly's Ferry, Tehama Co.
My wife's paternal family (Lovelace/LeFever) came to the Sacramento/Folsom area from Missouri and all points East. Her maternal family names are Morrill, Johnston, and DeForest. The Johnstons and DeForests were among the earliest settlers in Lassen Co., California. Clinton DeForest, my wife's great great grandfather was a member of the John C. Fremont expeditions that explored the Western United States in the early 1840's.
I am currently working on California Zumalt/Zumwalts in Find A Grave. My theory is that almost all can be traced back to Andrew Zumwalt who immigrated to the US in 1737. Thus far I have been quite successful in proving my point. Any help with this project would be greatly appreciated.
I have been finding many of the photos that I have submitted to Find A Grave on various family trees on Ancestry.Com. I am honored to share these photos, but I would request that you add proper credit for the photos.

Thanks for all your hard work. It is greatly appreciated.
In reference to Myron William Daskam, my uncle. I have his baby photo album by his mother, Laura Alice Bangham Daskam, in which she has written that the first picture is him shorthly after his birth, including the date and place. He was born in Wilmington, Clinton County, Ohio.
His WW2 enlistment records also have this information.
"US WW2 Army Enlistment Records 1938-1946 Myron W. Daskam b. 1898 white, citizen b. Ohio, San Luis Obispo, CA Enlisted 16 Sep 1942 in San Francisco, CA Branch Immaterial - Warrant Officers, USA Grade Private, Enlisted for the duration of the war or other emergency, plus 6 months, subject to the discretion of the President or otherwise according to law. 1 year of college Optician married height 68 weight 114"
His parents never lived in Iowa nor had reason to visit there after their marriage having been married in Clinton County, Ohio and leaving there after the birth of my father, going directly to the Los Angeles area.
I know his death record says Iowa, but that is an error.
Would you please correct this error on findagrave?
