I don't understand the name of Toy Eidson, one place it's shown as Toy Kenneth, and the other as Toy Young. Anyway they all had strong ties to California and the Eidsons that were already there.
They were kin of William Kyle Eidson who was born in Arkansas and died in Calif. as well.
Hope this helps.Best regards, Dave.
