The Hancock family in 1916 The Hancock family in 1916 In early 1916 Mary traveled, probably from her home in Sacramento, and went to Corning, California, to attend her parents' 50th anniversary party.  The first two photos show Mary with her parents and siblings at the party on 6 Mar 1916.  The two photos below right show Mary with some of her siblings and two of her nephews, The Hancock siblings in 1916 The Hancock siblings in 1916 Wilfred Hancock and Ralph Culley.

Naida said I spent some time with [the Pendletons] when I was a kid during summer vacations (circa 1922 to 1935).  [Aunt Maud] had a sister, Mary, who moved in with Maud and her husband in Santa Cruz — where Mary died.  Aunt Maud once took me to the cemetery where she's buried.  She was buried in "Potters Field" as there was no money for final expenses and Aunt Maud felt very badly about that.
