Ron Hubbard, be interviewd and determine what she knows of Scientology and the current addresses of the children (Katherine and L. Ron Hubbard, Jr.) born during this marriage.

Arrangements were made to interview Mrs Margaret Ochs on 2/18/63.

I arrived [illegible] to the Och house and knocked at the door.

The door was opened by a man who identified himself as Mr. John Ochs.

I certified myself to Mr. Ochs (pronounced "Oaks") by showing him my credentials and stated that I had made arrangements to speak with his wife concerning Mr. L. Ron Hubbard. He asked me to step in and introduced ne to his wife who was sitting in the living room.

Mr. Ochs then stated that ordinarily he would be working at the [illegible] plant in Albertsville, Pa.; however, L. Ron Hubbard had sworn to "get" his wife and he wanted to be at home when I arrived to make sure that Hubbard wasn't trying to pull some trick.

I asked Mrs. Ochs if she would tell me about L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology. Mrs. Ochs indicated that she was willing to cooperate as much as possible and hoped that she didn't sound like a vindictive wife.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Interview of Mrs. Margaret (John) Ochs, Cap, Pa., has supplied the current addresses of Katherin and L. Ron Hubbard, Jr. LA District, by copy of this memo, is being requested to interview Katherine as per DRM memo of 2/4/63.

Bolt =========================================================================== - 2 - She gave Hubbard's background as follows: Born at Tilden, Neb.

on 3/13/11, attended high school in Helena, Montana, traveled with his parents to Guam, returned to Washington, D.C. and attended Army-Navy Prep School, entered George Washington College, Washington, D.C. (exact date not known but believed to be 1930 or '31) but flunked out during the second year. Hubbard then had trouble with the Federal authorities in 1932 for taking some bonded whiskey. (Mrs. Ochs could not supply any names or dates.)

Mrs.Ochs met Hubbard on a blind date in 1932 and was married in September 1932. From Sept.'32 until Dec.'41, Hubbard lived in or around the Georgetown area writing fiction stories and selling them to national magazines.

Hubbard was in the Navy from 12/41 until 9/45 during which time he attended a Navy training school at Princeton, had several legal entangle- ments with the Navy but his father (a Naval officer) managed to keep his son's name clear. He went directly to Secretary Knox and got a Lt. JG commission.

Mrs. Ochs indicated that Hubbard received some kind of injury during 1945 and was stationed at the Oak Knoll Navy Hospital.

All during this conversation, Mrs. Ochs repeated that Hubbard was really a genius with a misdirected mind.

When Hubbard was discharged, he went to Hollywood to become a script writer; however, his wife would not go and went to stay with Hubbard's parents in Bremerton, Washington. She apparently did not see Hubbard until she asked for a divorce in 1947. Mrs. Ochs states that she paid for her own divorce and in the divorce wsa granted $25 a month maintenance for each of the two children. (Hubbard never paid her anything in connection with the divorce.)

Mrs. Ochs states that up until the time of her divorce she had never heard of Scientology and even now could not tell me anything about the organization.

Mr. Hubbard showed up for the divorce proceedings in Port Orchard, Wash.; he had another woman with him that he was supposed to have married during 1946.

Mrs. Ochs produced two old newspaper article which gave an account of the divorce proceedings of the second wife. The articles in "The Mirror" Los Angeles, Calif. paper dated April 23. 1951 page 12, and the "Los Angeles Times" April 24, 1951 related how Mrs. Sarah Northrup Hubbard, from a Pasadena family, was kidnapped, had her child (Alexis Valery - 13 1/2 month old daughter) taken from her by Hubbard and was asking for a divorce. Mrs. Ochs believes that Hubbard's second wife is currently living in either Santa Marisco or Santa Maria, Calif., as Mrs.

Sarah Hollister.
=========================================================================== - 3 - Other articles which Mrs. Ochs had relating to Hubbard were:

1. "Look Magazine" Vol 14, 625 Dec. 5, 1950 - article titled "Dianetics - Science or Hoax?"

by Albert Q. Heibel.

2. "Newsweek" August 31, 1950, page 85 article about Hubbard's book called "Dianetics"

3. "Time" Dec. 22, 1957, page 34 article about the additing of the E meter to Scientology Mrs Ochs gave me a booklet titled "Scientology in Phoenix"

which described the organization of Scientology, gives pictures and names of individuals involved in Scientology. (The original booklet and one copy is attached for DRM's information.)

At about this point in the interview, Mrs. Ochs stated that Hubbard's father was thoroughly disgusted with his son and his crazy ideas and would probably be glad to give us any information that we might want concerning Hubbard's "scrapes" with the law.

The father's address is:

Lt. Commander H. R. Hubbard (retired)
1212 Gregory Way
Bremerton, Washington mailing address is: P.O. Box 4072
Wycuff Station
Bremerton, Washington Mrs. Ochs had two children while married to L. Ron Hubbard, a son, L. Ron Hubbard, Jr, nickname of "Nibs", and a daughter Katherine.

When she was divorced from Hubbard, the children went to live with Lt. Commander Hubbard at Bremerton, Wash. L. Ron Hubbard, Jr left the Port Orchard high school around 1949 or '50 and joined his father in Phoenix, Arizona. He apparently stayed with the organization until 1960 when he left and moved to California. Mrs. Ochs believes that her son is a security guard with some company unknown to her. His current address is 6231 Palm Ave., Bell, California.

Mrs. Ochs described her son as a gentle man, very gullible, and an easy mark for his quick-talking father.

Katherine Hubbard married Mr. Rod Whittaker in 1956. They moved to Washington, D.C. and her husband worked with Hubbard for approximately one year but apparently Whittaker and Hubbard didn't get along so Whittaker left Hubbard and divorced Katherine in 1957. Katherine then worked in the Washington, D.C. offices during 1957 and '58, until she remarried in '58. Her current name and address are:

Mrs. James P. Gillespie
7455 Belvona Ave.
Van Nuys, California
=========================================================================== - 4 - Katherine is a housewife and has lived in California for approx- mately 4 years.

Mrs. Ochs' final statement was that she believed Hubbard is now in England and has been for about 3 years. The last address she had on Hubbard, Sr. was Dr. L. Ron Hubbard, Saint Hill Manor, East Grinstead, Sussex, England. She obtained this from the American Dianetics Society bookly (Spring '62) printed at 2485 Bayer Ave., Seattle 2, Washington.

Inspector's Conclusion ---------------------- Mrs. Margaret (John) Ochs has supplied some background information on L. Ron Hubbard; however, she could not supply any information concerning Scientology. It appears that Hubbard began this organization sometime after 1947.

The current address for Katherine (daughter) is:

Mrs. James P. Gillespie
7455 Belvona Ave.
Van Nuys, California In connection with DRM's request for interviewing Katherine, we are requesting LA District by copy of this memo to interview Katherine and obtain any additional information concerning Scientology.

Current address for L. Ron Hubbard, Jr. is:

6231 Palm Ave,
Bell, California Division of Regulatory Management may want LA District to follow up on Hubbard, Jr.

Copy of a booklet concerning Scientology given to me by Mrs.

Ochs ia attached to this report. DRM may want LA District to follow up in Phoenix, Arizona.

Lt. Commander H. R. Hubbard (retired) 1212 Gregory Way, Bremerton, Washington (Seattle District) may be able to supply information on Hubbard's activities.
________________________________ W. BEALE GROVE Inspector, Philadelphia District




L. Ron Hubbard Family Tree info gleaned from above:

Margaret Grubb Ochs was still alive on February 20, 1963 and married to John Ochs.

Katherine Hubbard was married to Rod Whittaker from 1956 to 1957. This confirms earlier info already noted in Bare-faced messiah, above.

Katherine Hubbard married James P. Gillespie in 1958. She was later known as Catherine May Gillespie. They had 2 children by 1969 publication of Advance.

They lived in Van Nuys, California in 1963. By 1969 issue of Advance, they lived in Los Angeles, California. By her death in 2010, her last known residence in the Social Security Death Index was Portland, Multnomah, Oregon.

Sadly, L. Ron Hubbard's great-grand-daughter died tragically at a young age.

She was born December 3, 1994 and died January 27, 2012 in Sandy, Oregon in a snowboarding accident on Mount Hood.

She was the daughter of Harry DeWolf, (son of Ronald DeWolf, son of L. Ron Hubbard).

Info quoted from the following source, bolding added for emphasis, relates to L. Ron Hubbard Family Tree:

Anderson, Lisa K. "Remembering Taylur: A community celebrates the life of a vibrant and faithful Sandy teen, Taylur DeWolf". Sandy Post. Portland Tribune and Community Newspapers. February 1, 2012. http://portlandtribune.com/sp/68-news/1 ... ing-taylur
"Taylur DeWolf ...

Friday night, the 17-year-old Sandy teen and her two friends prayed for safety and protection before snowboarding at Mt. Hood Skibowl. ...

According to a Clackamas County Sheriff's Office report, Taylur was found just after 11 p.m. about 10 feet from a groomed, downhill route. She died after striking a tree and suffering severe trauma to her head and chest.

'There's just an emptiness in the world because she's not here,' said Chris Cauch, Taylur's uncle. 'She was a rare gem.' ...

Taylur was born Dec. 3, 1994, in Portland and lived in several locations before her dad retired from the Navy and the family settled in Sandy. ...

In 2007, Taylur was crowned as the fourth Sandy Mountain Festival Princess, accompanied by her very proud father, Harry, or 'Navy Blue Bear.'

'She just glowed,' said Jennifer Collins, an older cousin. And of course, she wore a purple dress and gloves. ...

'She was so excited for her future,' said her aunt, Deborah Kennedy. 'She had visited colleges and was always wanting to learn about different subjects.' ...

Once when Nadia Kennedy was visiting family in Oregon and taking a family portrait, her cousin Taylur suggested the photo would look better with yellow daisies in front. The photographer took this suggestion, and the portrait was beautiful. 'She was always able to make something brighter or happier,' Kennedy said.

For another cousin, Joel Brache, Taylur was like a little sister. He once took her to 'Swan Lake' at the Oregon Ballet Theatre when she was little. ...

Amid her grief, Taylur's aunt, Esther Cauch, said she finds comfort in coming across the many gifts Taylur made for her, including a strawberry pin cushion and an apron. ...

Taylur DeWolf is survived by her father, Harry; mother, Grettel; brother, Luke; two grandmothers; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends."

Harry DeWolf

Harry DeWolf is the son of Ronald DeWolf and Henrietta Elizabeth DeWolf. His siblings are Alexander DeWolf, Eric Stephan DeWolf (1961 - 2010), Esther Clementine DeWolf Cauch married to Christopher D. Cauch, Leif R. DeWolf married to Karen M. DeWolf, and Deborah DeWolf Kennedy married to Robert Kennedy.

Harry DeWolf married Grettel Ortega DeWolf, and they had two children, Luke DeWolf and Taylur Fressy Adell DeWolf (1994 - 2012).

According to the Portland Business Journal, below, he was 43 in 2007, therefore he was born about 1964.

From source below, Portland Business Journal, 2007: Interestingly, the location in 1980 where he enlisted in the Navy, Carson City, Nevada = the same city where his father Ronald DeWolf died in 1991. -- The location where he retired from the base, Bremerton, Washington = the same city where his great-grandfather, Harry Ross Hubbard (1886 - 1975), died, and same city where his great-grandmother, Ledora May Waterbury Hubbard (1885 - 1959), died.

Harry DeWolf = District Director of the U.S. Small Business Administration in the Portland District Office = per source:

SBA.gov U.S. Small Business Administration. http://www.sba.gov "Harry DeWolf: District Director". http://www.sba.gov/about-offices-conten ... ship/12064 Home > About SBA > About SBA Offices > District Office List > Portland District Office > Leadership. 2012.
"Prior to joining the SBA in 2005, Mr. DeWolf served as the President and Chief Operating Officer of AEC Technical Publications, a former SBA 8(a) business. ...

Mr. DeWolf served with distinction during a 20-year U.S. Navy career as a Supply Officer ...

Mr. DeWolf holds an MBA in International Business from National University. ... received his Bachelors of Science degree in Operations Management and Pre-law from Oregon State University."

"At 43, Harry DeWolf is one of the youngest directors of a U.S. Small Business Administration district in the country. ...

For five years, after retiring from the Navy as a supply officer, DeWolf was president and chief operating officer of AEC Inc. in Sandy, a technical publications company. ...

DeWolf was not looking to leave AEC, but when searching a federal Web site in 2005 hoping to find a job for his brother-in-law, a hospital administrator in Southern California, he learned of the director's position and applied. The job went to Nebraskan Leon Milobar and DeWolf was hired for the deputy job. When Milobar accept the director's job in Nebraska earlier this year, DeWolf was moved up. ...

He enlisted in the Navy from Carson City, Nev., in 1980 as a cook, serving on nuclear submarines. In nine years he had earned an associate's degree studying part time and was tapped to finish his degree with commissioning as an officer following that.

He chose Oregon State University, where he met his wife, and graduated in 1992 with a degree in business.
He became a food services officer and eventually ended up with a Navy SEALs unit in Germany, providing relief aid in Kosovo, Bosnia and some African countries.

He retired in 1980 [probably a typo, most likely = 2000] from the base in Bremerton, Wash., and immediately sought a job in Oregon, "where you can make a dollar and have a life. I love Oregon," he said.

Harry DeWolf sounds like a competent guy and family man, proving there's no such thing as "bad blood." His father was the wise Hubbard child to get the family away from LRH's high demands and vindictiveness.

Definitely agreed.

But also these comments from his nephew show they probably don't have the highest opinions of the Scientology organization anymore:

Different source as confirmation, post to MySpace by Leif DeWolf, son of Eric DeWolf (there is a reply post to him in the thread by his brother, Zach DeWolf):

Leif DeWolf

Leif DeWolf is the son of Eric Stephan DeWolf (who was the son of Ronald DeWolf, the son of L. Ron Hubbard). He is therefore the great-grandson of L. Ron Hubbard.

NOTE: There's a different Leif De Wolf who is the direct son of Ronald DeWolf. That Leif goes by De_Wolf as his last name, and lives in California.

This Leif goes by DeWolf as his last name, and is from Colorado.

"Palmer enters its 60th year of wrestling with championship aspirations for the deepest team in what should be a very competitive Class 5A Metro League.

Sixteen lettermen, including 12 seniors, return to a team that tied for third in the league last year. Coach Martin Davidson thinks this could be his most successful team ever.

"Six is the most we've sent to state in one year. I think that's in jeopardy this year," he said. "I think we can qualify more than six."

The Terrors are led by two-time state qualifier and senior heavyweight Jon Russell and qualifier Joey Melillo (119).

Other key wrestlers include seniors Leif DeWolf (171), Alex West (140) and Carl Williams (135); juniors Derek Garcia (125), Devin Cox (103) and Tony Bruhl (215); and sophomore Sean Pellow (145).

Hubbard's thumbprint, likely pressed on his final will while he was comatose, disinheriting his family.

I have no direct knowledge, but an earlier will was missing key parts about how much his wife and children got, and reports of his health around the date of this final will were bleak. The first page of this thread talks about the wills.
