3b.  Anon.  Saturday, 13 Dec 1919.  "Wife Seeks Denial of Final Decree."  Oakland Tribune (Oakland, CA), p. 3 (online at Newspapers.com):
Wife Seeks Denial of Final Decree
   Claiming the prospective advent of a baby as the result of a reconcilliation since the interlocutory decree of divorce was granted a year ago, Mrs. Anna C. Matthiesen, wife of Arthur C. Matthiesen, Oakland haberdasher, has filed a petition in the Superior court through her attorneys, J.J. Jerome and W.L. Rose, to have the final decree of divorce denied.
   This is the first case on record in Alameda county that such a proceeding has been attempted.  The petition was filed late yesterday, the day upon which the final decree would automaticaly have been granted by Judge Everett Brown.
   Mrs. Matthiesen obtained an interlocutory decree on December 12, 1918, on her complaint of cruelty.
The prospective baby would have been daughter Betty Ann MATTHIESEN, born in Feb 1920.  Attorney W.L. Rose was William Lee ROSE, Anna's maternal grandfather.  Son, Arthur Robert "Bobbie" MATTHIESEN, would have been just one month old in December, 1918, when Anna obtained her interlocutory decree.
Note that Y-DNA, mtDNA, and At-DNA test results all confirm that both of Ann's children, Betty and Bobbie, are the biological children of Arthur Carsten & Anna California (ROSE) MATTHIESEN.

Art and Ann were obviously separated at this point, but where is their son, Bobbie?  Bob was born in 1918, and on January 10th, Ann would have been almost eight months pregnant with their daughter, Betty.  Note that Y-DNA testing has proven Ann's son to be a full 67/67 match with his younger half-brother (Art's son with his second wife, Ida), so there is no question with regard to Bob being Art's son.  Bob's mtDNA was a match with his sister, Betty's, son, so there is no question Ann was the mother of both Bob and Betty.  So, is Bob's absence here simply enumerator error?

5b. 1930 U.S. Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find Ann (or her mother or her children).  My Dad tells me they moved from San Francisco to Alameda around this time, so it's conceivable they missed the census during the move.

This enumerator's handwriting was difficult to read to begin with, but on top of that, the image is double-explosed in places.  No wonder the indexer got it so wrong.  No street names or numbers were taken.

9.  Obituary from the Amador Ledger Dispatch, Jackson, CA, Feb 1994:
Anna C. Rose Matthiesen
Born in Sutter Creek in 1899
  Anna California Rose Matthiesen, who was born in Sutter Creek, died Feb. 11 in a San Francisco convalescent hospital at the age of 94.
  Her daughter, Betty Cogliati of San Francisco, said Mrs. Matthiesen was born on Sept. 9, 1899, which also was Admission Day, and that led to her middle name of California.  When she was young she participated in many Sept. 9 parades in Sutter Creek, her daughter said.
  Mrs. Matthiesen was the daughter of Judge William Lee Rose and Maude Irene Thompson Rose and was descended from the pioneer families of McCray, Thompson and Rose, her daughter said.
  In addition to her daughter, she is survived by a son, Robert 'Bob' Matthiesen; three grandchildren and two great- grandchildren.
  Private memorial services will be held in Palo Alto.

10.  From the Death Notices of the San Francisco Examiner/Chronicle, San Francisco, CA, 13 Feb 1994:
MATTHIESEN, Anna California Rose:
  In this city at Mission Villa Convalescent Hospital on February 11, 1994.  Born on September 9, 1899 in Sutter Creek, Amador County, CA.  Beloved mother of Arthur Robert "Bob" Matthiesen and Betty Ann Cogliati; adored grandmother of Diana Matthiesen and Steven and Kevin Cogliati; grandmother-in-law of Ann and Jane Cogliati; Granny Ann to her two great-grandchildren, Eric and Danielle Cogliati.  A descendant of the pioneer families of McCray, Thompson and Rose.
  Private Memorial Services will be held at a later date in Palo Alto.
  NEPTUNE SOCIETY OF SAN FRANCISCO

11.  From the newspaper column of Herb Caen, San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco, CA, 18 Feb 1994:
My dear friend, the beautifully named Anna California Rose (married name Matthiesen), died in her sleep last wk. at 94.  There was an innocent time in the Golden State when many a baby was named California.
