Nellie Gail Moulton’s Life in Orange County [43:04 minutes]
Watch “My Life In Orange County”. Born December 1878 in Irving, Kansas, Nellie Maud Gail spent her life in several of the states. In Washington, she became a school teacher, but she often visited Southern California, where her father was a store keeper in El Toro. Nellie was initially not fond of Southern California. Coming from Washington, where the plant life remains lusciously green throughout the year, the brown, desert grass was distasteful. She was heard saying, “You couldn’t even give me this land!” But she would later eat her words when she met the recently divorced Louis Moulton, one of Orange County’s most eligible bachelors. This video tells the ‘rest of the story’.
