Mamie P. [Hubinger] and Edward James Mayo

Mamie's parents were Mary E Frybarge [1852] and Dr John A Hubinger [1839-c1916], both born in Ohio. John served from October 1861 to October 1864 as Bugler for Company E, Second California Cavalry Regiment. Mustered out at San Francisco.

He was in Springfield OH for the 1870 census married to Margret [1843] and first born Elizabeth. He married Mary in 1873, then in about 1878 moved to St Louis MO where Imogene was born. He final ended up in Pasadena CA prior to 1900. Occupations of this talented family were "Lizzie" H [1868] music teacher, "May" [1875-1969] artist and Imogene S [1880] bookeeper. John went from physician to preacher which may explain why so many older unmarried daughters at home. Mamie was an excellent artist, painting in oils to the delight of her grandchildren.
Mamie also worked in a candy store where she knew the secret recipe for Lincoln Logs. Edward must have liked sweets, they were married in 1902.

Mamie married again about 1925, to Alva Porter Gray [1882-1949] in Bard but he was originally from Texas. His parents were Amanda Francis [Kuykendall] [1864-1942] and George Skelton Gray [1857-1940] married in 1880. Amanda had 13 children, 7 living in 1910. Alva was in Bard in 1918 according to army draft records, and had a daughter, Ulis Gray, living in Oklahoma [from a previous marriage]. Together with Mary S. [1901, another daughter of Alva?], Edward and Marvin, they were living in Saugus, about 5 miles north of San Fernando in 1930. Later they moved to Button Willow in Kern County, where Alva died in 1949. Mamie P. Gray shows on the voter lists for both Bard, and latter Button Willow, but not Alva, appearantly he chose not to vote. By then Marvin had built his own home on Sepulveda Blvd, and Mamie moved into a small apartment at the back. After WWII construction lumber was in short supply and the house was built from actual barnwood shipped in by rail from Nebraska. In later years she lived both with her younger sister "GG" (Imogene) and husband Walter in Pasadena, CA, and her daughter Mary Martin at Bass Lake.

Frank Martin was like an older brother to Marvin. He worked at the MGM movie studio, and sent Marvin to highshool in San Fernando CA (class of 1933). When Frank retired he moved to a farm at Fresno CA and died at Bass Lake, Madera County CA. He was a clever and inventive person, like his dad, an engineer according to census. He took particular interest, along with brother Robert in cotton harvest machinery, both at Bard CA and later Fresno.
