A Henry Peavey Connection

Henry Peavey was William D. Taylor's cook & valet at the time of the murder. It's assumed that he discovered Taylor's body on the morning of 2 February 1922. The first significant finding for Peavey is the WW1 Draft Registration Card belonging to Henry Peavey. Henry Peavey lists Mrs. EG Garden as "friend" as the Nearest Relative in the Registration. Mrs. Garden was Edith, the wife of Edward "Ned" Gordon Garden. Ned was a Canadian born archtect who relocated to the San Francisco area in 1911 from St. Louis. In the 1920 census, Ned & Edith lived at 2917 Garber Street in Berkeley and Ned was an architect for Standard Oil.
