It was on the NationalCity property that William and Genevieve decided to plant an avacadoorchard.  I think the land was about 40 acres. ... UnfortunatelyWilliam died in a plane crash on September 30, 1930. ... Shortly afterthe funeral of William, Genevieve received word that her mother hadbeen killed in an auto accident in Nowata, Okla on September 13, 1930. After the funeral, Genevieve returned to San Diego and took care ofher avacado grove, becoming a respected member of the AvacadoAssociation."
