In Reply to: THEODORE SIAS"WHO IS HE"? by Charles Henderson of 298

You are fortunate that he died in California because you can look him up in the CADI (California Death Index):

http://vitals.rootsweb.com/ca/death/search.cgi

Do a search on him there, as I just did, and you will find the dates and places of his birth and death. Write to the county clerk where he died and request a copy of his death certificate, which should give you the names of Theodore's parents and where they were born.

Knowing that he died in Orange Co., CA, helps greatly because telephoning every SIAS in Orange County will probably connect you with his kin.

Good hunting.

P.S. A check of the 1910 WV census should turn up a two-year-old Theodore living with his parents.
