Questions and comments:
- Tirey L. Ford was the Attorney General of California from 1898-1902. I don’t know if this is the Mr. Ford that Nathaniel was referring to.
- William Henry Magee married Emily Frances Tibbey in San Francisco on June 10, 1901.
- And there was a William Magee who was a witness in a burglary trial on Sept 8, 1900.
- I don’t know who Nathaniel is referring to when he said “he left his old employers” – Magee?
