San Bernardino

San Bernardino, California is the place where these Poncy and Thompson families converged. Paul Poncy and Clara Mandeville moved to San Bernardino in 1911, where Paul, A machinist for the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad was assigned after a short stint in Winslow, Arizona. After a few years they purchased some acreage on S. Waterman Ave., where the family operated a small dairy farm for many years. Their sons went to Mill School in rural San Bernardino, and their daughter Theresa Marguerite attended catholic school at Saint Catherine. Their oldest son, Francis Paul "Frank" Poncy died in the 1918-19 flu pandemic. Paul retired from the railroad in 1939.

In about 1931, Lena and Ida Hedrick arrived in San Bernardino from Oklahoma and later, they were followed by their parents, Asa and Rebecca Ann Hedrick and their sisters, Joanna Corns and Minnie Elizabeth Thompson, with their families.
