1.  Interview of my mother, Nina Gale (STRAUB) MATTHIESEN, sister of my aunt, Shirley (STRAUB) WAUGH, and my own first-hand knowledge.  I knew well, and dearly loved, my aunt and uncle, Shirley & Earl (STRAUB) WAUGH.  I have a vague childhood memory of someone mentioning a connection between my Uncle Earl and the painter, Frederick Judd WAUGH (b. 1861 in NJ), and with the writer, Evelyn WAUGH (1903-1966, born in London), but I can't get beyond Earl's father.  Earl was an attorney for Standard Oil in Arabia, and I was beguiled as a child by their stories of living there.  Shirley was my mother's closest sister, and they were my favorite aunt and uncle.  I liked to think I was their favorite niece, and I lived with them one summer in Pacific Heights while attending a summer class at San Francisco State University.  They loved to play bridge, but my mother didn't, so as soon as I was able to hold a hand of cards, I became the fourth with them and my father.

Shirley's middle initial was "D," not "S" (the "S" stood for "Straub"); and her mother's maiden name was Nina WILLIS.  It was Nina WILLIS's maternal grandmother who was a HOPKINS.  She was born January 18th, not the 9th.  The informant on Earl's death certificate was very likely the widow of his late wife's late brother (as the only kin living anywhere near him at the time of his death).  As she was not blood kin to either Earl or Shirley, she could easily have been mistaken about the maiden name of Earl's mother, which could explain why I've been totally unable to find Earl's mother in the census before she married Earl's father.
