My great grandmother, who is 92 years old, recounted something to me that regarded a couple with the last name Beckwith. These particular Beckwiths owned property in Ventura County, California and wanted to adopt my grandmother's older brother, although her mother did not give him up for adoption to them. They remained good friends. I had a question (and as there is not much mentioned of the Beckwiths and their lives prior/after the disaster): did Mr and Mrs Beckwith own property in California? Or did Richard have any siblings? I thank anyone with an answer.
