From The Oakland Tribune, 22 May 1919, p. 4
Sisters Sought; Mother Dying
Search is being made in Oakland for Mrs. Margaret Miller, and Mrs. William Draper, sisters from Redding, whose mother is dying in that city. Telegrams and telephone messages have been coming in to the Oakland police, appealing to them to locate the two women, whose addresses here are not known in Redding, before their mother, who was stricken with apoplexy, passes away.
The sisters, according to the messages to the police, came to Oakland a week ago to seek employment. Inspectors William J. Emigh and Alexis Shefoff are endeavoring to locate them.
