My grandfather, J. Deforest, went by Jack (after his brother's death, evidently) or Jesse - he was an architect for the State of California.
Clementina was a teacher for many years and also served as principal at several schools in the Los Angeles area. I have several pictures of her from some of the yearbooks, if you are interested.
I have a newspaper article describing an outdoor school that Clementina and another woman, Ellinor Dewey, founded. It was the Foothill School and classes were held outside. There were also stables. I also have several articles from when Clementina was the president of the Los Angeles branch of the Women's International Association of Aeronautics.
Clementina was directly descended from many notable people: George Griffin, famous attorney from New York; David Curtis DeForest, South American Revolutionary War hero; Col. Zebulon Butler, American Revolutionary War hero. She was very close to Bebe Daniels and Ben Lyon and they inherited the bulk of her estate upon her death - my sisters and I were also remembered.
This is a basic outline of what I have. If anything sounds like something you need, just let me know.
