Gold Family Genealogy Forum
Greetings: My mother Lyla Katheryne Gold was born March 11, 1914 in Oakland, CA to Nathan A. Gold and Bertha Rathburn Gold. Nathan A. Gold lived at 2224 Linden St. in 1917. His name is missing from the 1921 Oakland city directory. I'm looking for his death certificate.
Betha Rathburn Gold is listed in the Oakland city directory in 1924 as living at 913 Taylor Avenue. In 1930 she lived at 3733 West in Oakland. After that date there is no mention of her. We know that she married a Jones and died with the name of Bertha Rathburn Gold Jones. We don't know where she died, but believe it to be in CA.
We believe that both Nathan A. and Bertha moved to CA from TN but don't know when. We, also, don't know their parent's name. Nathan had two sons of knowledge, Nathan and Robert F. and two daughters of knowledge, Lyla Katheryne Gold and Holland Newby Gold. Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated. We would, also, be interested in contacting any of Nathan's (son of Nathan A.) off spring and any of Robert F. off spring. We know what happened to Lyla Katheryne and Holland Newby Gold and when and where they are buried. Have a great day. milt
