I'm assuming this is in reference to James Birchenough?

There is a California birth index available on and  I presume that index would include the birth record under the adopted name. allows you to put in the day and month, unlike familysearch which just has a spot for the year, so I would use Ancestry to search the birth index if you can.  (If you're in the US, your local or state library may provide free access to Ancestry.) 

You don't need to be a  paying member at Ancestry or go to a local libarary for access to Ancestry to be able to search th CA birth index by Day, Month, Year.

It can be done for FREE at the below site.

Another possibility maybe Riverside Cemetery.

I see from Ann's obit that her two youngest daughters Margaret Crossley & Sarah Thomas also lived in Plattsburgh, NY and she was living with daughter Margaret as you mentioned.

I didn't find an obit for Margaret, but did find an obit and funeral notice for daughter Sarah Thomas in Oct. 1921. The notice stated interment was to be in Riverside Cemetery. Sarah isn't listed on Find A Grave as being buried there, but I did notice Sarah's daughter Margaret Ann (Thomas) McIlwaine whom she was living at the time of death is buried there.

Find A Grave has Eleanor's first name misspelled. She and Frank are both buried in the same plot.

On the 1900 census Frank & Eleanor's address is 1831 H Street.

1900 census:

Franks's death:

Find A Grave:

His funeral notice in the paper dated 1 Apr. 1906 gives his address as 1831 H Street.

It's all a bit peripheral and not terribly important to the main tree, but having a look for Frank reveals an assortment of possibilities in Washington DC, but nothing linking him to Eleanor or to verify whether he's Frank A. or Frank J. Does anyone have a marriage or other record linking a Frank Clark to an Eleanor Clark in Washington DC?

A few clips. Obit has "Frank A".
