Re: [CA] NELSON & LUCINDA RAY ~1870

Now that is in fact most interesting, Art.
My first primary interest source was when you were in the grandfather finding process and lo and behold a Sacramento Angel emerged and assisted in the finding. That is when we were group chatting on a regular Noon time basis.

My second primary interest is not always knowing where results might emerge and we get a BINGO!. Some of us 'behind the scene laborers' pondered over whether to approve this query. I am so glad we agreed to do so.

My third primary interest [actually the first] is to follow Art Thomas who is the 'champeen seeker and finder' with a purpose who develops resources in previously unrecognized sources. Lo and behold the census is indeed primary in this instance. We will watch this one closely to see whatever RAY and ADAMS connection may develop.
Art! THANX so much for being you and leading us the way!!!!!

Very interesting!!!! My 2nd great-grandfather, William F. Adams, from Urbana, Ohio is also found enumerated as living in the 2nd Ward of Sacramento, CA in the 1870 Census. I noticed that Lucinda Ray is listed as an 11 y/o and born in California. My ancestor is also listed in the City Directory of Sacramento (1861), so I'm sure he and the RAY's were acquaintances.
