I saw this request at the Contra Costa County message board at Ancestry.com:
"I am researching Hugh H. Donovan born 1894 Texas. He has his recollections listed on Stratton Students Recollections of San Francisco 1906 Earthquake. In around 1945-50 I believe it is the same Hugh H. Donovan that is a Judge Superior Court, Contra Costa There is also a Hugh H. Donovan #1063 listed on The History of Contra Costa - 1926. My Hugh Donovan was the son of John J. Donovan and Mary E. Murray Donovan.
If anyone could help with a look up on the above or any information it would be a great help.
