Mrs. William H. Workman (Maria Elizabeth Workman) celebrated her 84th birthday on March 18, 1931, amid memories of nearly 75 years of colorful life in Los Angeles. Mrs. Workman came to the pueblo of Los Angeles as a child of 10 after sailing across the Gulf of Mexico, crossing the Isthmus of Panama in an oxcart, and sailing up the coast to meet her father, Andrew A. Boyle, pioneer. She was the widow of William H. Workman and the mother of four daughters and three sons, including Boyle Workman, widely-known civic leader, when she died on October 14, 1933. Later her will was contested by daughter Charlotte N. Masson.
