Ryan Aeronautical Company was founded by T. Claude Ryan in San Diego, 1934. Ryan built several historically and technically significant aircraft, but its most successful production aircraft would be the Ryan Firebee line of unmanned drones used as targets and unmanned air vehicles. The company was sold to Teledyne in 1969 for $128,000,000 - then became part of Northrup Grumman when they bought Teledyne in 1999, with the products continuing to form the core of that firm's unmanned aerial vehicle efforts..

Morris Teague told me she lived with her daughter Sue who had been in California 30 years or more. At some point she married for a second time. They lived in Sacramento.
