Elvira Dodge (1836-1929), California pioneer, rancher and teacher, settled in Waterloo, east of Stockton, Calif. (1860). She taught school there and married rancher, Aylmer Francis Drullard (1861). After her husband's death (1905), Mrs. Drullard operated the family ranch until age eighty-three, when she sold it to grandson, Roy Drullard, and moved to Stockton.
