A little more on the above deed and the one from Charles STREIG to Minnie POLANDER:
These deeds were recorded after the death of Charles. He died on August 25, 1916 and these deeds were recorded after that date. Now, I personally could not locate any will or probate for Charles STREIG in Modoc County. Strange, wouldn't you say. Looks like he went for the distribution before death to avoid all that taxes, etc., as he had previously deeded the "home lot" in Lake City to his wife, Wilhelmina. Frederick would not be included in the distribution, necessarily as he was a step-son.
Also, in the above deed, the property description has the names: Fred E. BUSH, Mrs. E. M. PHILLIPS, and A. L. MONROE included in the description.
