I've been trying to find information on my gg-grandparents with little success. Charles William Bickford was born May 15, 1849 and May Estelle Worth was born December 1857, both in Maine. By 1883 they moved to San Joaquin County, where they married and resided for some years. They had Ulmer in 1884, Earl in 1886 and my g-grandmother Lila in 1893. Lila died in 1925 giving birth to my grandmother and since Charles & May blamed her for their daughter's death, they had little to do with her. We think that Charles & May moved in with son Ulmer in Alameda county and died between 1930-1940. I've checked the CA Death Index but none of them match my gg-grandparents. At least I was able to find information on Ulmer and Earl. If anyone has newspaper records or a pre-1940 death index and can help me with the dates of death for Charles and May I would greatly appreciate it. Then I could at least send for their death records.
