Oroville Pentico born Iowa died in Chico, CA area.

Is your family on the hunt? Some of ours are whacking at the bushes and startling the bees.

I recently received a phone call from northern California regarding a name that provoked my
husband to say, " I remember that name and they went to Chico, CA."

Knowing my husband is not big into genealogy and family I was a  bit surprised by his comment.
Waiting until Sis was free and we could talk, I finally called her last night.

The man in question is a son of Oroville Pentico who was born 10 Jun 1886, County of Palo Alto, Iowa. Taken from WW1 draft card on Ancestry.com.
Oroville Pentico received his last SS Benefit Feb 1979.  He did live in Chico, Butte Co. CA.  It reverifies that  he was born as stated.

Orville(spelling change) is in the 1900 census with his parents and siblings, at least some of them.

He died May 1966. SSIndex taken.

Though our family knew of him, we did not know him.  Sis did visit family once and I used to write to someone in this family. On older computer.

So interesting to see more family interlinks in these lines .
Emanuel was the father of both Frank and Orville, Fred, Mary, Jim and Shirley's Great Grandfather. Orville was a Great Uncle.

We would love to find a picture of Frank A Pentico.
Does anyone have pictures of any of these people???
