Hello, I am looking for information on a child who died at or shortly after birth in Sonora, Tuolumne County, California between 1927 and 1931. I do not know the sex or first name of the child. The information have is from several members of my husband's family (who are now in their late 80s) remember the death. The family lived in numerous places in northern California so, the child may not have been born in Sonora.
The child's father was named Robert Chan (aka Hung Chan). Mr. Chan was from China and was a traveling herbalist. The mother's name was Esther Lee; she was born in San Francisco.
I could not find a birth with the last name of Chan in Tuolumne using the California Birth Index on Ancestry or the one at http://cabi.comeze.com/
. There are many Chan births with Lee mothers elsewhere in California but I could not recognize which one it might be with the limited information I had to work with.
I tried to use the California Death Index prior to 1940 at Vitalsearch but the records retrieved were very blurry and I could not read them. I also looked for burials listed on sites like Internment.net but had no luck.
Any help would be appreciated.
