  • Notes 
    • Bill farmed with his father in Texas and New Mexico during his younger years. He was 19 when the family moved to New Mexico. In July of 1938, Bill, Walter and Elman Toler (E.B.’s son) followed Albert and Jim out to Northern California looking for work. They traveled in a 1934 Plymouth that Bill traded his 50 acres to Jim for. In Fairfield, Bill Jim and Walt rented a house together and Pearl lived with them. All of the brothers worked the fruit at the Grother Ranch in the Suisun Valley. And Pearl worked in the cutting shed during the season and otherwise kept house for her brothers.
      When Bill was 25 years old he married Ella Blanche Hall on June 7, 1941 in Reno, Nevada. The bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 started him working for California’s Mare Island Navy Defense Plant in early 1942. He worked at Mare Island from 1942 thru 1945. After WW II, around 1946, Bill and Ella moved to Blythe, California to see if the desert climate would help their son Albert’s Asthma. In September of 1947, Ella returned to Northern California to be near her parents for the birth of son, Larry. She returned to Blythe after a couple of months. They moved to Napa, California in 1948 or 1950 and settled there. Bill went to work for Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield, California. Bill and Ella had five sons:
