Ezekiel the son of Joseph and Rosa (both born in CA) was born in Salinas Valley, CA according to info he added to his draft registration card.By 1900 he was living with his parents and 7 younger siblings in Gonzales, Monterey County, CA, and by 1910 his mother had died.

Shortly after 1910 Ezekiel married Gertrude Alviso and they had 4 children of their own...Christopher, Bernice, Senovio, and Rosie. Senovio died at just 7 months. Gertrude "Gertie" had 6 children from 2 previous marriage, so the house was always full of kids, laughter, and who knows what?!

Ezekiel worked in the shipyards as a boilermaker during WWI. After that he and Gertie continued to live in Emeryville into the 1940s where he worked for the American Rubber Company. Their son Christopher worked there too.
