Caution 2: A World War I Draft Registration Card exists for a William Simon Nielson who was born on 23 Nov 1882 and lived in San Francisco with his wife Ruth on 12 Sep 1918. Although the birth date is identical, I have assumed that that William is not our William.
Our William moved to Burlingame in 1922 and purchased a home on Broadway at that time. After that he spent most of his life in the contracting and real estate businesses. He owned Easton Realty Company, which was a prominent name in real estate on Broadway. He became widely known as a successful real estate operator, handling most of the important real estate transfers in the business section of Broadway.
William was a member of the California Real Estate Association, and in 1943 was the president of the San Mateo-Burlingame Real Estate Board. He was a director of the Burlingame Chamber of Commerce.
