Hello: More children were born to Mary Alice and Isaac including my grandfather, William James Harbin on 2/14/82 in Middletown, CA. There was also a daughter called Amanda that I know of. William and his second wife, Evelyn are buried in the family plot in Middletown. Because of a fire that burned all the paper records stored in a barn there is now no record who all was actually buried there. when my grandfather William died in about 1960 and was buried there lots of wooden headstones existed. Now they are all lost to decay.
His oral history is that he lived at harbin hot springs and then the family moved into Middletown. He finished schooling there and moved to Grass Valley for a period of time where my mother was born. He and Evelyn had one daughter, Margaret. In his later years he returned to Middletown for about a decade and was buried there. I met Aunt Amanda once living in Lower Lake. I do not know if she married or had children.
I was told by Margaret a few years ago before she died at age 95 that Mary Alice had mental problems, was committed to an institution for awhile and finally the sons and daughters cared for her at home. William committed suiside, my mother was suicidal, one of Margaret's daughter was mentally ill and one of her daughters also committed suicide. I hope this affliction has not transferred to other members of the family.
