California has numerous counties; Alameda County is 01.

The following doesn't answer your question, but perhaps it may fill in the blanks, if you don't already have the details?

WWII Draft Registration Card
Edward Webster, born 10 June 1880, Liverpool, England.  Unemployed
Residence:  32 S. Cayuga Road, Williamsville, Erie, NY
Address of Person who will know your address:  Mrs. Olive E. Webster, wife, same address
Date of Registration:  20 Oct 1944

Passenger and Crew List
M. V. Britannic, sailed from New York 15 Dec 1948, bound for Liverpool
Olive Webster, age 67, 1502 Jackson Street, Oakland, California
Place of birth: England.  Naturalized in 1926, Buffalo, NY
Intends to remain abroad: 6 months

UK Incoming Passenger List
Olive Webster, age 67
Proposed address:  Bebington, Cheshire
(It gave an address but not adding it for privacy reasons)

There is at least one additional passenger record for Olive, but perhaps you already have the information?

So, apparently, as of December 1948, Olive was living in Oakland, California (Oakland is in Alameda County).

Since the above contains "recent" information, please let me know if you would like anything removed for privacy reasons.

Many thanks to Lisa & RJ137, I was only reminiscing about my Aunt with a cousin the other day.
Will now share these facts with the family, thanks again.
