Happy Easter!

This is a picture of my mother, Mary Ann, with her great grandmother, who was called Peeps.
Peeps was born Elizabeth Agnes Doherty on July 9, 1870 in San Francisco, CA to Ann McLoughlin and Rogerty Doherty.
She was married to Ewen Davidson, and had a daughter, Claire (Mammy to her grandchildren and great grandchildren). Ewen died, and she later married Louis Levenberg (Pop), after his wife, her sister Lily, also died. (Lily and Louis had 2 daughters, Mildred and Loretta). Peeps had 3 more children, Joseph (Bud), Elizabeth (Beth) and Louis (Lou).
Peeps died July 21 1949 in Fresno, CA. She is buried in Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma, CA.


  1. Hi Michelle ,
    Thanks for the Easter present. your work on this blog means so much to all who see it.

  2. Michelle,
    Happy Easter!
    Just wanted you to know that I continue to enjoy the posts you have on your
    genealogy website. I particularly enjoyed the photo of us at La Honda. I
    know this picture. I think my sister, Mary, has a copy. You have gotten
    all the names correct, as far as I can tell. It brings back lots of
    wonderful memories. LaHonda was a paradise for me and I think for most of
    us kids. Each day was an adventure: playing in the creek, climbing the
    tree, sliding down the straw hillside on cardboard, swimming, ice cream
    cones and, occasionally, horseback riding. We celebrated three birthdays
    there: Anne's on August 2; John's on August 9 and Jim's (now Samarpan) on
    August 27. I also enjoyed the cake!

    Thanks for all you do to search for the family roots. Keep it up.

    Love and Peace,
