Yes, that's another possibility.  I can wait five years and, meanwhile, turn my attention to the other disappeared and problem individuals who plague the fringes of my tree.

...Theories:...

2)  Even though her birth was registered under her father's surname, she was born before they were actually married, was given up for adoption and received a new name.  She may or may not still be alive.

This is a bit late for a reply, but I was looking through California threads and found yours. 

Was she born before the marriage, or it is a theory that she could have been born before their marriage?  If she was born before their marriage, she could have been adopted soon after birth. It is possible that her siblings were never told which could explain why she was not mentioned in an obituary.

Also, do you know if the couple ever visited family (outside of their area)?  Perhaps they visited family members soon after the baby's birth and the little girl passed away while they were in another state?

Just a theory; I don't know the date of the marriage.

Out of state relatives?

Possible, but only remotely so.
