A McLaren Migration

California - graphic

Peter McLaren, Jr. arrived with his family in Hollister, California in 1917.  Peter was 51 years old, his wife, Mary Celia, was 45.  Their children were Marion (19 years old), Marjorie (17), Elsie (13), John (5), and Robert (1).  They settled west of town in an area of fruit orchards.  Peter became an orchardist.  Here is a California Timeline.

By 1930 John Dixon McLaren, Peter Jr.'s eldest son, was dating Martha Elizabeth "Tookie" Winchester.  They married in 1935 and began the final chapter, as the McLarens enter the City of Dreams.
