    Little Sandy Home of Andrew & Mary Adkins
    Home is still there today, but has been moved nearby to this location to avoid floods. (previous?) Owners of house: Benjamin K. & Anna L. Given. Although her death certificate states she died in Mountain State Hospital, Grama Mary is said to have actually died at home in this house (and apparently was "declared" dead later). (At least one living or private individual is linked to this item - Details withheld.)

    Foothills Cafe
    Foothills Cafe
    Early Post Card photo of the Foothills Cafe on US Route 80. Sometime after this photo was taken, a one-room motel was built behind and to the right. In about 1961, Wilson, Margaret & Doug Couch lived in a 8'x40' mobilehome setup alongside the motel room (behind the right carport). Not long after, Interstate 8 was completed, putting this cafe and a few other businesses out of business. Later still, a flash flood a few miles to the west, near Ocotillo, California knocked out an I-8 freeway bridge. Roy Batley showed me (Doug) a photo of his pickup truck buried in the mud up to the top of the cabin, and stated that he and his two children were in that truck on the bridge when it went down, but survived. Quite a tale.

  • Notes 
    • Original birth certificate destroyed in fire. A delayed certificate was filed by the Bureau of Child Welfare. Margaret and her sister, Hester, went to accomplish the refiling when Margaret was around 18 years old (per Margaret). Her name at birth was Margaret Marie, but she used Margaret Ann all her life. Her father used the surname Atkins (documented), as do most of her siblings. Adkins appears to be the original last name, but undocumented.
