Notes for Louise Celestina MORELLI
Elizabeth and Louise were sent to live with friends in Tomales so that they could attend high school. They fell in with the party crowd. There were parties at Dillon’s Beach and drinking. When the party gang got caught, Elizabeth refused to testify that the boys were drinking. The Principal of Tomales High School expelled the girls, and Joe Morelli had to come to Tomales to pick them up. He told the principal he was proud of them for not snitching on their friends. They returned to the ranch near Occidental, and Elizabeth went on to Sweet’s Business College in Santa Rosa. Louise went to work in Occidental and, after about a year, she became one of the youngest postmasters in California at the age of 19. At the age of 24, she met and married Charlie Scott who became a gambling addict. He was away from home so much that she moved from their home in Santa Rosa back to the ranch near Occidental. Her two sons were born at Occidental. Eventually she and Charles were divorced and she then met Art Hogan, a butcher from Petaluma whom she married in 1938.
