Children of Stephen and Aurelia Pensotti Frease (My Grandmother is Voilet)
At one time we thought the boy to be Clifford, but a Frease cousin, Paul Cooper, advises
he is too old to be Clifford but may be Richard, whom we did not know about until recently
I was actually able to communicate with my great grandfather, Stephen Angelo FREASE, while he was alive through his then wife. Stephen was the son of Angelo FREASE, who was born in Mexico. They had several children besides Stephen.
Stephen married Aurelia PENSOTTI somewhere in the Bay area around 1900. They had three children, Lydia (whom everyone called Winnie), Clifford, and Violet. There was some great problem in the home with Violet because she never spoke about her father.
I asked her, and she declined. She got pregnant at 16 and left home. Stephen and Aurelia divorced. He is buried in small cemetery in Concord, California. His photo is below.
