Morehead, Doris E. (22 DEC 1899 - 4 MAR 1930)

Doris Evelyn Warner Morehead, born to Henry and Louise Warner, Dec. 22, 1899, passed to her reward March 4, 1930.

Having been born on the farm of Hiram Varney, her grandfather, Doris lived with her parents at Hemlock of Greenwood (Clark Co.), Wis. During her childhood and girlhood, attending both the country and city schools. She left Greenwood in Jan. 1918, and did tutoring work in Wyoming until her marriage on Oct. 15, 1919 to Samuel A. Morehead of Lincoln, Nebraska. Her husband was stationed at the army post at Cheyenne, where they remained until April 1921, when they moved to San Francisco, Calif., where Mr. Morehead was employed in the upholstery business.

Three children were born to their home, Stanley Atwood at Cheyenne on July 18, 1920, Evelyn Louis on Feb. 24, 1922, and Samuel Elwood on Jan. 26, 1924, at San Francisco.

In July 1927 they returned to Cheyenne, Wyoming, hoping that the health of both Mr. and Mrs. Morehead might be improved by the change in climate. Doris gradually failed in health and nothing that the doctors might do seemed to affect her favorably. In August 1929 her tonsils were removed, but she did not yet recover from the anemic condition. Again trying a change of climate and environment, she went to Deeth, Nevada, on Nov. 16, 1929, where she stayed with her mother until the first of December, when she was brought to Sacramento and stayed with her sister, Mrs. Raymond Pederson. There she continued under the doctor's care until her death on March 4, 1930. Her husband was also with her during the last week.

Although everything known to science to relieve or cure dropsy, was don, the last two weeks of her stay were once of much suffering. All efforts to spare her live were of no avail.

Does anyone know what role a Peter Christopherson (sp?) had at Thorp Finance? Also, in which years was he a part of Thorp Finance?
