Amanda "Mandy" Alice Hoagland, was born in Merced, California, December 6, 1870, the daughter of two true pioneers who left Illinois and crossed the plains in a covered wagon train led by her father, Henry Walker Hoagland and his younger brother, William Stoddard Hoagland, and her mother Martha Jane (Stevens)Hoagland. They arrived in San Joaquin Valley, where they settled and Henry Walker and his wife acquired 3300 prime acres, raising 10,000 sheep, 400 head of cattle, and many horses, mules and hogs. The eldest four children crossed with them: William Marion, Rosa Alta, Martha Ellen and Charles Henry. The next five siblings were born in the San Joaquin Valley, California: Clamency "Clay" LuDora (Ludam), Joseph Pendleton, Alice Amanda, Cathryn "Cassie" Nevada, and Wilma Jane. In 1879, the family moved to Klamath Falls, Oregon with all of their stock including their mules and horses. Her youngest sister died in 1879.

Her niece, Venita Hoagland (daughter of Joseph Pendleton), grew up seeing her Aunt Al (Alice) often and relates in her memoirs "From Covered Wagon to the Moon" that "All the Hoaglands were high-spirited and vivacious... The girls were all fancy dressers and had lots of beaus. They were always dashing about on fine horses going to parties and dances and being quite gay". "Aunt Al was a little woman but feisty as all get out. She had seven or eight husbands during her lifetime but the only one I remember is Uncle Emmet. He was a huge, red-bearded Irishman."

Alice had her first daughter, Ethel Hazel, with William O. Wimer.

Alice was stepmother to Jesse Humphrey McFall's two children: John and Grace Pearl Mc Fall. Alice and Jesse had four children of their own: Earl Jesse, Clarence, Lottie May and Wilma G. (Margaret on later documents)

She had many grandchildren. Some are listed by her son Earl from Tulelake and her daughter Ethel Vaclav below in Alice's obituary.

Those grandchildren that are not mentioned in the obituary of her daughter, Lottie May (Mc Fall)and husband Fred Franklin Burns are Eva May, Violet Cora, Bobby (later Bob and Robert), Jesse Alec, Fred Edward "Freddie", Harvey D., Billy (William) C., and Charles "Chuck" Melvin Burns. All but two of these children were born in Klamath Falls and the other two were born in California. They all lived in Klamath Falls for years and later moved north to Portland and finally to Tacoma, Washington area. Four of the grandsons served their country in the U.S. Air Force. Charles "Chuck" was a LCPL in the Marine Corps in Vietnam. Harvey did not serve.

She had many other grandchildren also, which included the children of Bobby (Robert): Robyn Lynn, Michele Clare, Robert Keith, and Fred Franklin "Pete" Burns. Great Grandchildren are Deana Layne and Dustin Stuart Pauley, Ron, Shannon and Joy Rocha, and Katlin Johnson.

She has many nieces and nephews too numerous to list. Alice had a very interesting and colorful life. She and her last husband owned and managed the Shasta Lodge in Redding, California. Daughter-in-law, Ann and her husband, Freddie, took their two year old son, Tim to visit Gramma Alice and told me that Gramma Alice was the sweetest and most perfect Gramma. Ann said she was tiny and had a great sense of humor.
