Puna Singh Chima harvesting celery, Yuba City, c. 1922 4x7 photo mounted on cardboard
Puna Singh Chima is shown here with his team of horses, harvesting a celery crop on land that he has purchased. After 1923, Indians who purchased land had to hold it in the name of an American partner or friend. Some Indians held land in the names of their American born children. All male Sikhs had Singh as part of their names. For this reason the last or family name became an important way to distinguish between men with the same first name. In this case, Puna Singh Chima, shown in this picture, is a different individual from Puna Singh, who lived in Astoria, Oregon before coming to California.

Susanna with her first husband
Divorce was almost unknown in India, but was a reality of life in the United States. Moola Singh married Susanna Mesa Rodriguez Singh in 1937 About the marriage Moola relates: "When I met Susanna, she did sewing, she's a good farmer girl. She cut all the kids' hair, she made all their clothes ... 1 found Susanna in 1937, and then everything got good. Susanna, she didn't want to buy anything, she only wanted to buy groceries. She chopped cotton, she worked, she didn't even want to buy a dress. I went to the store, I bought her a dress". (quoted by Karen Isaksen Leonard, Making Ethnic Choices: California's Punjabi Mexican Americans, Philadelphia Temple University Press, 1992, p. 118.)
