I saw this request at the Stanislaus County message board at Genealogy.com:
"Looking for any information concerning the Dittemore Family, Early arrival to Oakdale was John Loren Dittmeore who came to Oakdale around 1910, followed by Katherine Dittemore,who taught at Oakdale High for around 40 years,Last is John H Dittemore who was born in Oakdale in 1914 and left around 1938...
Hi John! A search through the California Death Index found that John Loren DITTEMORE was listed as Loren John. He died in the county on 15 May 1937. To follow is his obituary. From the Modesto Bee And News-Herald, 18 May 1937:
This find was very exciting for me! I'm recording California pioneer families and have gathered a fair amount of info. on your DITTEMORE family. I've recently placed two obituaries at Newspaper Abstracts of Laura MOORE and Henrietta MOORE-HOWARD- both daughters of Lutitia MOORE-CRENSHAW (a sister of Loren's father, John Wallace DITTEMORE). You can find the obituaries through the links below:
Obituary Of Miss Laura Alice MOORE
Obituary Of Henrietta MOORE-HOWARD
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help with your research.
