    Death Date: 06/28/1938
    Death Place: CALAVERAS
  • Note:

    Accoding to Langley's Directory of San Francisco, Benjamin's mother worked at a tobacco and cigar shop at 41 4th st. in San Francisco. Magdalena's father worked at the bakery and coffee saloon across the street at 28 4th St. You can see how Ben and Lena could have met just by being in their parents's stores. The family story passed down is that Ben was washing windows and saw Lena and fell in love. Today the approximate location of where these stores were in San Francisco is now Old Navy (the bakery) and the Marriot Hotel (cigar shop) on 4th and Market Streets. The original buildings fell down in the 1906 earthquake.
