Estelle Tefft: Manslaughter

Estelle Tefft was born in 1880 in Texas. Married to Frank Tefft. 

Inmate #45855 San Quentin
Rec: 24 Aug 1928
Crime: Manslaughter
Term: 0-10
Paroled: 24 May 1930
Discharged: 24 May 1933

I looked for more information on John Gogden and found nothing. I also did not find Estelle's maiden name or anything further on her husband.

Estelle had 2 prior convictions one in Sacramento County Jail as Inmate #11668 Reason unknown, and Inmate #10986 reason also unknown.

Estelle was shot on 22 Jan 1938 in Stockton, California and died 26 Jan 1938 I found no death index record for her so she may have gotten married and her name changed is all I can think of. 

I wonder who she was, in her heart? 


  1. maybe try the name John Bogden (not the stated Gogden) /thank you for all you efforts and posts
