If he worked for the railroad, he must have a SS#. Try running a search on that. I found some death records from San Diego cty if it helps any. http://vitals.rootsweb.com/ca/death/search.cgihttp://vitals.rootsweb.com/ca/death/search.cgi I am going to request info on the Pedro born in 1898 and died in 1859. Are you positive he died in '30? I am not doubting you, just trying to make a connection somewhere. My mom says she saw her tio Pedro in '59, my grandpa died in '64. Keep in touch.
