After RC died, his son Willy inherited the responsibility to serve as executor. Given RC’s many real estate investments, this would have been a huge task. It was compounded by the 1906 Fire and Earthquake which destroyed many legal and historical records – leading in turn to many lawsuits. The De Boom Tract in San Francisco was involved in one of them. RC had to prove he was the legal owner of several lots and had repaid the loan on one when he entered into agreements to sell them. Fortunately, the Court found in his favor, or rather that of his estate. Emma saved a copy of the decision, dated May 26, 1913.
