With a single search, I found death record for:
Gardenhire, Samuel Bigger, b. 01 Dec 1897, male b. CA, parents last names not listed, d. Santa Clara county, CA on 05 De 1978, ss#565-44-9170, age 81 at death
Maybe he's one of your relatives?
Best wishes and if you haven't tried searching this site I listed, it's great, and it's free.
