In one of the loveliest weddings of the season, Miss Celina Ann McNeil became the bride of Mr. Corwin Godfrey Dean Wednesday morning when Rev. Father Joseph L. Bauer officiated at nuptial High Mass at the Catholic Church of the Nativity in the presence of 350 guests.

The bride, lovely in a gown of heirloom lace and tulle fashioned with long sleeves and train and wearing a full length veil, carried white gladioli and orchids. Mrs. Frances Hicks attended her sister as matron of honor in powder blue lace with matching tulle hat and carrying pink gladioli.

Miss Ramona Carlin, as bridesmaid, also wore powder blue lace and carried an arm bouquet of salmon gladioli. Little Delores Payne and Sally Taylor, in blue net, were flower girls. Clifford Sprague of Paso Robles was the bridegroom's attendant and ushers were James Dean of Long Beach and Phil Tepper.

A reception followed at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. T. D. McNeil of 1744 Andreo ave.

Mrs. McNeil received her guests dressed in an R. A. F. blue ensemble with silver trim, complemented with fantasia corsage. At the buffet table, at which a four-tiered wedding cake was cut, Mrs. Clifford Sprague of Paso Robles, sister of the bride, and Mrs. P. S. Taylor, of Long Beach, poured.

Mr. and Mrs. Dean left for a honeymoon at Yosemite and upon their return they will make their home here. Mrs. Dean has been employed as accountant at Mayfair Creamery for a number of years and her husband is coordinating supervisor at Douglas, El Segundo.

8828 Tristram Dodge came from the north of England near the River Tweed.
J Roy Dodge, A History and Genealogy of the Dodge Family, (Dodge, LaFayette, NY (1971), pp 10 ? 11

It is believed that Tristram Dodge arrived in Massachusetts from England in 1660, having first stopped in Newfoundland, that he sailed April, 1661, from Taunton, Massachusetts, with the original fifteen settlers and their families who settled on Block Island, Rhode Island.
Block Island's first settlers were Baptists.
The first mention of Tristram Dodge in the records of Block Island appears in May, 1664, when he is listed as "Freeman." In 1672, [Block Island] was incorporated as the Town of New Shoreham (from the ancient town in Sussex, on the coast, nine miles west of Brighton), otherwise Block Island, and among its officers elected in 1676, were Tristram Dodge, Sen. Sergeant.
Robert Dodge, Tristram Dodge and His Descendants in America with Historical and Descriptive Accounts of Block Island and Cow Neck, L.I. Their Original Settlements, Press of JJ Little & Co, New York (1886) by Theron Royal Woodward

Tristram Dodge is named as one of the passengers in the "shallop" which sailed from Taunton, 1661; although he was not among the first purchasers, he was among the first party of settlers.
Reverend S.T. Livermore, A.M., History of Block Island (1876), p 17

The beautifully carved gravestone designates the final resting place of Trustrum Dodge, one of the original settlers who came to Block Island in 1661. His descendants, especially noted for their exploits on the seas, have been among Block Island's most illustrious citizens.
Donald A. D'Amato, Henry A. L. Brown, Block Island, Arcadia Publishing, (1999), p 96

The grave of the elder Tristram is not marked.

HNERY PERCY
4th Earl Northumberland

Son of Henry Percy, 3rd Earl of Northumberland, by his wife, Eleanor Poynings; was the only one of the family to appear to take the Yorkist side. his father's earldom was forfeited at the Battle of Towton by the victorious Yorkists, and Percy was imprisoned the Fleet Prison and then the Tower from 1464 when John Neville was created Earl of northumberland. After swearing fealty to Edward IV, he was released in 1469 and petitioned for the reversal of his father's attainder though this was not granted by Parliament until 1473. Percy held many of the important government posts in the north of England which were traditional in his family.

Fought in the Battle of Bosworth, where he commanded the right wing of Richard III's army. Some historians says that he betrayed the King by holding his forces back from action.

Henry VII's treatment of the Earl of Northumberland after the battle certainly does not suggest any special favors or gratitude: Northumberland, along with the earls of Westmoreland and Surrey, was taken into custody and kept in prison for several months, being released only under strict conditions of good behavior. Although he was soon released and confirmed in all his titles by the new King.

On 28 Apr 1489 he was killed at one of his Yorkshire residences by a mob protesting over high taxes for the defense of Brittany against France, part of a rioting led by Sir John Egremont. Another reason for the mob's actions was his part in the downfall and death of Richard II who remained popular in Yorkshire. The rebellion was surpressed by the Earl of Surrey.

8847 United States Marine Corps Private First Class Mutschler was killed in action in the Vietnam War. John was wounded at Mutters Ridge on 10 August 1969. His Mortar Platoon was attached to Echo Company,2nd Battalion,3rd Marines.3rd Platoon of Echo Co and the Mortar Platoon had 22 Marines killed and 58 wounded. John died of his wounds on 19 August 1969.

John is honored on the Vietnam Memorial Wall 19W071.

Silver Star awarded for actions during the Vietnam War

The President of the United States of America takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to Private First Class John L. Mutschler (MCSN: 2484069), United States Marine Corps, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action while serving as an 81-mm. Mortar Gunner with Headquarters and Service Company, Second Battalion, Third Marines, THIRD Marine Division (Rein.), FMF, in connection with combat operations against the enemy in the Republic of Vietnam. Early on the morning of 10 August 1969, during Operation IDAHO CANYON, the Company E defensive perimeter approximately eight miles northwest of Vandegrift Combat Base came under intense mortar, rocket propelled grenade, and small arms fire from an estimated North Vietnamese Army company, followed by a determined ground attack. When his unit's sector of the perimeter was penetrated during the initial assault and the enemy began to sweep across his platoon's position in waves, the Marines rapidly maneuvered to alternate defensive positions in order to re-establish their perimeter. This move resulted in several of the Marine casualties remaining in dangerously exposed positions and in the open in the front of the newly established perimeter. With complete disregard for his own safety, Private First Class Mutschler unhesitatingly left the relative safety of his fighting hole within the newly established perimeter and fearlessly dashed across the fire-swept terrain through the enemy ranks firing his rifle, and killed several North Vietnamese soldiers before reaching the side of one of his fallen comrades. Forced to abandon his weapon in order to carry the wounded Marine, he resolutely moved toward the perimeter but was seriously wounded by fragments from an enemy mortar round. Ignoring his own painful injuries, he continued to carry the wounded man across the dangerous area until he reached a covered position. Undaunted by the vicious fire fight around him, he braved the North Vietnamese fire to rescue two additional casualties and was wounded for the second time. While moving across the fire-swept terrain in a fourth attempt to rescue a fallen Marine, he was critically wounded by fragments from an exploding enemy round and rendered incapable of continuing his selfless mission, By his courage, bold initiative and unwavering devotion to duty in the face of great personal danger, Private First Class Mutschler inspired all who observed him and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and of the United States Naval Service.

Elvenia J. Slosson Endowment for Ornamental Horticulture

Elvenia J. Slosson spent much of her life promoting the enhancement of landscapes, botanical gardens, arboreta, and the introduction and use of ornamental plants in beautifying highways and the landscape.

She founded and served as the first president of the California Garden Clubs and continually encouraged individuals and local groups to work for the enhancement of both public and private outdoor environments.

When Mrs. Slosson died in 1958, she left a gift in trust to the University of California to be used "for the advancement and promotion of the science and practice of horticulture, particularly including ornamental horticulture."

In 1970, the Regents of the University of California established the Elvenia J. Slosson Endowment Fund for the support of research and Extension education in ornamental horticulture. The annual income from the fund was assigned by the Office of the Vice President, Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources, to fund research and education projects by University researchers and staff. Research and education proposals were solicited annually and evaluated and selected through a competitive review process by an advisory committee consisting of representatives from University of California campuses, Cooperative Extension and the California Garden Clubs. The Advisory Committee recommended to the Office of the Vice President, DANR, those proposals it believed met the purposes of the fund and the quality expected by the University. Grants were awarded for one to three years, contingent upon satisfactory progress as judged by the Advisory Committee.

Severe budget shortfalls in 2009 forced the Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources to redirect Slosson Endowment income to retain critical programs and personnel involved in ornamental horticulture education and outreach.

This website remains as an archive of the diverse research and educational projects undertaken in Mrs. Slosson's name that have deepened and broadened the people of California's knowledge of ornamental horticulture.
