History into the Future
Clark, Waterman and Buscher Stories
We kick off March with three family stories. First is the Clark Family History. They were a large family of 2 girls and 10 boys who, through the years, married into other nearby families such that, as Calvin said, they seemed to be related to everyone in the area.
Next is the Waterman family story that including where the Waterman ranch was located, tales of early schooling and the connection to the nudist colony in Wilton!
Finally, Dennis Buscher presented his story of his years of undertaking genealogical research and of building a ‘Family Tree’ of the greater Elk Grove area.
Holm and Mackey Family Story
In January, 2019 the Linda Mae Mahon Lema Foundation spent time with Doris Holm as she related the Holm family story. Doris is a retired long-time teacher in Elk Grove and an active civic leader in the area. That same month, we also chatted with Tom Mackey as he discussed the history of the Mackey family.
