Pages 52, 110, 301 - Harriette Proctor's name was misspelled.

Page 118 - Anna Elmira Dye, described as "perhaps the most beloved resident of Corralitos" died in April of 1947. "She was a charter member of the Corralitos W.C.T.U. and first chairman of the L.T.L. (Loyal Temperance League) in the Corralitos community. She was a staunch worker along all lines of Temperance and the W.C.T.U. was her hobby. She had a large part in clearing the saloons out of Corralitos and circulated many a petition along that line, as well as for Woman's Suffrage. She was tireless in her efforts on all lines of W.C.T.U work and reforms in general. She was a fine Christian character with a great sympathy for those less fortunate. A lover of flowers, her old fashioned garden with its profusion of flowers was always ready for the demands made upon it and furnished decorations for many a social gathering." (She is in the photo on page 119)

Page 118 - "Mrs. Alberta Bowman was a cousin of Anna E. Dye, whom she came to visit in Corralitos in 1890. Here she met and married Walter Bowman in 1892. To them were born three children, Viola, Bayard and Norma, all of whom are still living at this date. Mrs. Bowman was a woman of ability and fine character and a faithful worker as first President of the Corralitos W.C.T.U., and in those days thought nothing of walking two miles to a meeting, as did most women at that time. She was ill with cancer for many months and the family moved to Oakland where she could have better care. She died there in 1922. She was the first woman to invite me to attend and become a member of the Corralitos W.C.T.U. in 1918. She wore white a great deal, and this day in particular looked very handsome in a white serge dress. The meeting was at the home of Mrs. Ida Davis." Written by Mrs. Maud Jack 1948
