John R. Waid died from same automotive accident as his wife, Anna Grey Alexander, probably the next day, on 1/16/25. John and Anna had moved 2 years ago from Muskogee, Oklahoma. John's son Charles M. Waid had just come from Lemon Grove, where he owned a ranch, on his way to Fresno. They had purchased the Vinea Apartments at 1333 Union St., San Diego, Ca. This information was from the front page and obituary in the San Diego Union paper of Friday morning 1/16/1925.
I was able to find an obituary for Anna Gray Waid in the San Diego Union on Jan. 20, 1925. I will transcribe the full text of that obituary below. There was also an article about the accident on the front page of the San Diego Union on Jan. 16, 1925, the headline reads "Auto Kills Aged San Diego Woman." I will not transcribe the full text of that article because it is too lengthy. If you are interested you can pay for a photocopy to be sent in the mail. If you are only interested in the info from the obituary then there is no need to request a photocopy. Please let me know if you want photocopies of the article about the accident and/or the obituary and I will give you the information on where to send your request. Our charges are $5.00 per date, $.20 per copy, and $3.00 mailing. So for 1 article it will be $8.20, for both it will be $13.40.
