LILLIAN NOVINE (BAYLINSON) JAMES. I was born in Oakland, California on November 5, 1923 to Ben and Bee Baylinson. We later moved to Napa where my father and his brother had a junk business that later developed into Baylinson Plumbing Company. I finished high school in 1943 and went into the Coast Guard on February 5, 1944 for about a year. On April 27, 1945 I married Howard Parks Barnhill, the father of my two children. We were divorced in the early 1950's. With the help of my parents, I raised my boy Michael and girl Jane (now called "Shaina") and eventually went to Modesto and worked for my Uncle, Jack Goldberg in his "Hub Clothing Company". I met Ronald Leo James there who was a shoe manager for Jack's store and we were married March 8, 1959, almost 30 years ago. I now live in Santa Rosa and am caring for my grandson, Matthew, at my home. My husband is now in his 80's and lives at the Veterans Home in Yountville where they care for his many medical problems.
