Bio and Links
Bio Photo Grandma Mac (Elizabeth Ella Kellogg MacFaddin) was the genealogist of the family. She got the "bug" from her father. She kept all her research in an old black suitcase. There were notes on all sorts of scraps of paper the back of a grocery list, used envelopes and even a bank statement here and there. Her handwriting was neat and dainty. She would come down from Fresno and Daddy would drive her in to the Los Angeles Main Library to spend all day there working on her research. When she passed away in 1970 the suitcase was put away, until my sister took up the task in 1999, of sorting through all of Grandma's bits and bobs of information.

I personally had no interest in genealogy. That is until 2008 when quite by accident, I found my Dad's name in another family tree. So it's not my fault that I've become obsessed with the family history. I have a need to connect the dots.

Back to Grandma Mac, wouldn't she just have a field day with all the information that is at our fingertips today? Many thanks go out to all the volunteers through the various groups, like Find A Grave that give their time to help put the family puzzles together.

Names I am researching: MacFaddin/McFaddin or McFadden, Boynton, Breed, Caldow, Clark, Cody, Higgins, Hiscock, Houghton, Kellogg, Rathermel, Sairs, Schuck and Wilder.

Ernesto Magdaleno (1962 - 1995)
HI Margi,

Is there any way you can change Ernesto's listing to Famous? He was a famous Boxer. His story can be Googled. I copied and pasted some info for you, as well.

2 Killed, 1 Badly Hurt as Cars Collide in Police Chase
Accident: Fleeing suspects hit vehicle in Huntington Beach as pursuit reaches speeds up to 100 mph.
HUNTINGTON BEACH Two men died and a woman was critically injured when a high-speed police chase ended Sunday in Huntington Beach in an explosive, three-car collision that sent one car rolling over three times and left car parts scattered over several hundred feet.

The victims included Ernesto Magdaleno, 32, of Westminster, a nationally ranked boxer who was considered a contender for the World Boxing Council's light-heavyweight title. Magdaleno's whose wife and two children were in the car with him when it was hit by a white 1994 Ford Escort at the intersection of Edinger Avenue and Newland Street, police said.

Magdaleno was thrown from his Jeep Cherokee and landed on a median strip in the center of Edinger, striking his head on the curb, said Huntington Beach Police Officer Robert Barr. His wife and children were taken to local hospitals with minor injuries, Barr said.

William Earl Sweeney
I'm a little confused on Earl & his wife, Irene Yeager. Earl is listed in two places (#116756054 & #116620188). I, of course, don't know which is correct. I am adding birth & death dates & places to the Good Shepherd Catholic Cemetery record which came up in Ancestry.

Hope this is helpful.

Transfer request
Thank you so much for the wonderful work you've done. Would you mind transferring my cousin's memorial to me? I just sponsored it and put a photo of him on the memorial. Would love to update it more.

It's: Roger Franklin Holloway

I live in Sacramento, so if you ever need help with research on any folks in this area, please let me know. Thanks again!
