Excerpt

d wealth, therefore the King ordered that the large estate of the deceased should be taken care of, and placed it under the care of William von Schuylenburg, council of the King. At the same time notice was sent to all princes and potentates in whose countries there was property of the deceased to support His Majesty in this undertaking. Three weeks before his death he had made his will and had given the name of his parents and his five brothers and two sisters.

His sister Barbara was my great-grandmother. After the death of my granduncle some of the family came to America.

According the author Mrs. Blake-Alverson, these are the top ten songs from California of all time (a list I strongly disagree with!):

10. Good Vibrations-The Beach Boys
9. Oh Oxnard, We Love You-Reginald Blake-Alverson
8. I Left My Heart in San Francisco-Tony Bennett (Cory/Ross)
7. Manteca, the Gateway to Fresno-Reginald Blake-Alverson
6. Light My Fire-The Doors
5. California Dreamin'-Mamas and the Papas
4. Bakersfield Fanfaire-Reginald Blake-Alverson
3. San Fernando Etude and Variation-Reginald Blake-Alverson
2. Last Train to Clarksville-The Monkees
1. Modesto March of Progress-Reginald Blake-Alverson

Seems Mrs. Margaret Blake-Alverson is somewhat biased toward the music of her son, Reginald.
