(1) PETER STEPHENS.
Was born (probably in Pennsylvania) about the year 1690 or 1700. Nothing has been found in regard to the history of Peter Stephens except in "A History of the Valley of Virginia" by Samuel Kercheval (Winchester, 1833), from which the following extracts have been taken:

Page 64:--In the year 1732, Joist Hite, with his family, and his sons-in-law, viz: George Bowman, Jacob Chrisman, and Paul Froman, with their families, Robert McKay, Robert Green, William Duff, PETER STEPHENS and several others, amounting in the whole to sixteen families, removed from Pennsylvania, cutting their road from York, and crossing the Cohongoruton,(*) about two miles above Harper's Ferry. Hite settled on Opequon, about five miles south of Winchester, on the great highway from Winchester to Staunton, now the residence of the highly respectable widow of the late Richard Peters Barton, Esq., and also the residence of Richard W. Barton, Esq.

PETER STEPHENS and several others settled at Stephensburg, and founded the town: Jacob Chrisman, at what is now called Chrisman's Spring, about two miles south of Stephensburg; Bowman on Cedar Creek, about six miles further south, and Froman on the same creek, eight or nine miles west of Bowman; Robert McKay settled on Crooked run, eight or nine miles southeast of Stephensburg. The several other families settled in the same neighborhood, wherever they could find wood and water most convenient. From the most authentic information which the author has been able to obtain, Hite and his party were the first immigrants who settled west of the Blue Ridge. They were, however, very soon followed by numerous others.
Page 71:--Lewis Stephens,(+) in the year 1756, built a stone house, the ruins of which are now to be seen at the old iron works of the late General Isaac Zane. It will hereafter be seen that these several stone buildings became of great importance to the people of the several neighborhoods as places of protection and security against the attacks of the Indians.

Page 133:--At the massacre of the people near White's Fort, one of Mrs. Thomas's daughters, when the people were preparing to go to the fort, was requested by Mrs. Clouser, to take a bottle of milk in her hand and carry it to the fort, when the Indians assailed them, this young woman concealed herself behind a tree and finally escaped. As soon as she could run off without being discovered, she started and ran eight or nine miles with the bottle of milk in her hand. She was met by two of the Fawcetts, near their residence; informed them of what had happened, and they forthwith removed their families to Stephen's fort.(*)

Page 240:--In the month of September, 1758, the town of Stephensburg, in the County of Frederick, was established. This town was first founded by Peter Stephens, who came to Virginia with Joist Hite, in the year 1732. The ruins of Stephens's first cabin are yet to be seen. Lewis Stephens, the late proprietor of the town, was the son of Peter Stephens. He laid out the town in form, and applied to the general assembly to have it established by law, which was done in the year 1758. This town was first settled almost exclusively by Germans, and the religion, habits and customs of their ancestors were preserved with great tenacity for many years. The German language was generally used in this village since the author's acquaintance with it, which acquaintance commenced in the year 1784.
Page 239:--Tradition relates that Fairfax was much more partial to Stephensburg than he was to Winchester, and used all his influence to make Stephensburg the seat of justice, but that Wood out-generaled his lordship, and by treating one of the justices with a bowl of toddy, secured his vote in favor of Winchester, which settled the question, and that Fairfax was so offended at the magistrate who thus sold his vote, that he never after spoke to him.

The following is the Will of Peter Stephens, now on record at Winchester, Va.:

In the name of God, amen: I, Lawrence Stephens, of Frederick, County and Colony of Virginia, being well in body and of perfect mind and memory, Thanks be to God for the same. But calling to mind the uncertainty of this life, and that all men must die, do this tenth day of July, in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and seventy-three, make and publish this, my last will and testament in the manner following, that is to say--Inprimis.

(29) JOSEPH STEPHENS.
Son of Joseph Lawrence Stephens (16) and Lucy Garrard (18). Born in Ruddell's Mills, Kentucky, 3 February, 1798. He married Hannah Lawell (30), in March, 1819, and moved to Paris, Kentucky, where he built a residence, corner of Pleasant and Cherry Streets, in which he resided until his death in 1885. He first opened a jewelry store, but not liking this, soon gave it up and entered into the mercantile business (Dry Goods, etc.) After a few years his store was burned, proving almost a total loss. Not discouraged however, he immediately started again in the same line of business, in conjunction with a hemp and rope factory, doing extensive trading with the South. He brought his goods from Philadelphia by boats down the Ohio river to Maysville and thence to Paris in wagons, usually taking six or eight weeks for the round trip. Through the dishonesty of his associates he failed in this venture, and then, about 1858, embarked in the Grocery and General Merchandise business with his son Charles (43), remaining there until his death. He died in Paris, Kentucky, 2 April, 1885.

(47) REV. WILLIAM DAVIDSON STEPHENS.
Son of John Stephens (19) and Jeannette Vance (20).
Born in Shenandoah County, Virginia, 7 October, 1792.
His parents moved to Sullivan County, Tennessee, about the year 1804. The following year, William D., at the Methodist Conference at that place (Bishop Asbury presiding), joined that church and afterward became a local Methodist preacher.
In 1809, he moved with his parents to Preble County, Ohio, then an exposed frontier. He was living there in 1812 at the commencement of the war with Great Britain. He served as a volunteer in two or three military tours against the Indians previous to 13 September, 1813, when he was drafted into the army for six months, and served for that time under command of General William H. Harrison (afterwards President). The exposure to cold, hunger, etc., on this occasion, impaired his health so that he did not recover it for several years. During his military service he was generally (if not always) acting in the capacity of a scout.
He was married 24 October, 1815, to Mary Starrit De Freese (152), of Miami County, Ohio.
They settled and opened a farm in Preble County, Ohio, on the "West Road," a few miles from Eaton, afterwards moving to that place, where he was instrumental in building the Methodist church. On 1 March, 1836, he started to Texas, but was deterred by the invasion of that province by Santa Ana, so he settled in Natchitoches Parish, La. (in what is now Sabine Parish). He afterwards held some Parish offices, etc., and in 1845, represented Sabine Parish in the Constitutional Convention of the State.
Soon after his arrival in Sabine Parish he obtained congenial employment as a carpenter and builder (bis trade), and superintended the building of Fort Jessup, the headquarters of the American army under General Zachary Taylor, afterwards President. At Fort Jessup he gained the friendship of that sturdy, old soldier, for after Taylor's election to the Presidency, he still held his former acquaintance (Uncle Billy) in kindly remembrance, and of his own accord, offered him a position under his administration. Not wishing to leave his home, however, he refused any position.
He died in Sabine Parish, La., 16 April, 1859.

He followed orders, but the government refusing to pay for the arms, all his property in Alabama was sold to pay the debt.
His wife died 7 August, 1827, in Florence, and about a year later (5 March, 1828), he married Elizabeth Stephens (27).

(68) JOHN DICKSON STEPHENS.
(Residence, Woodland, California.)
Son of Joseph Stephens (7) and Catherine Dickson (11). Born in Cooper County, Missouri, 23 September, 1826.
After finishing his education he taught a district school and read medicine. As a teacher he was a success and gained considerable notoriety among the pupils for obeying the scriptural injunction of "spare the rod and spoil the child," but he did not spare it. On the discovery of gold in California, he, with a great many of his neighbors started "the plains across" to seek his fortunein the mines. After mining successfully at Hangtown (now Placerville), for a short time, he moved to the Sacramento River, and took up a ranch. He soon sold out and bought his present ranch near Madison, consisting of six thousand five hundred acres, where his home was until he moved to Woodland. In November, 1853, he returned to Missouri by way of Panama, and on 5 January, 1854, was married to Miss Mary F. Alexander (born in Kentucky, 4 June, 1826). In the spring of 1854, they moved to California, crossing the plains in wagons and driving a large herd of cattle. In 1862, he went to Virginia City, Nevada, to try mining, but soon tired of that business and returned to Woodland. In 1869, with other capitalists, he organized the Bank of Woodland, and was elected President, which office he has been elected to annually ever since. In 1890, he bought the pleasure and health resort in Lake County, California, known as Highland Springs, at a cost of about one hundred thousand dollars. He and his brother George D. Stephens (69), have been partners in all their business transactions since their arrival in this State. He was once, in the fifties, elected supervisor of Yolo County, but with that exception has never held an office, but has often refused to run for office pressed to do so by his friends.

OBITUARY OF MRS. NANNIE L. (STEPHENS) MALONE.
Mrs. Nannie L. (Stephens) Malone, daughter of Harry and Elizabeth Stephens and wife of Rev. B. H. Malone, departed this life in Clarendon, Arkansas, July 8, 1891; born July 11, 1842.
When about nine years of age she professed faith in Christ and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church South, in which she lived a consistent member until God took her up higher. Nannie was a brilliant, beautiful, amiable child. Her mother, a cultivated and refined lady, imparted to the daughter her own excellent character of culture and amiability. In her sixteenth year she was happily married to B. H. Malone, a teacher and minister of the Methodist Episcopal, Church, South. For nearly thirty years she was the faithful and cheery wife of a happy and devoted husband. She was affectionate, self-denying and thoughtful to promote the happiness of her husband and children. She made home so bright and happy that it was indeed a beautiful type of the heavenly home. Engaged in teaching, she was loved as a mother by her pupils. She was both magnetic and amiable, attracting all who met her and loved by all who knew her. She leaves two sons and four daughters, to all of whom she has transmitted a large share of her own peculiar culture and amiability. She was the best wife and the best of mothers. Her last words: "I am trusting all with the Lord, as I have done from the beginning." Message to absent loved ones: "Tell them I have a hearl full of love for them all." She asked for the hymns, "Jesus, lover of my soul," etc., "Now, mark it."
We will ever cherish the memory of her many virtues, more brilliant and durable than diamonds.
[Signed] HER BEREAVED HUSBAND, B. H. MALONE,
August 27, 1891. Rector, Arkansas.

(134) HARRY STEPHENS MALONE.
(Residence, Martinez, Contra Costa County, California.)
Son of Rev. B. H. Malone (122) and Nannie Leonora Stephens (121). Born in Tuscumbia, Alabama, 4 July, 1863. He was born in Alabama, but at time of his birth, his parents were only visiting Alabama, being residents of Tennessee, and until 19 years of age thought himself a native Tennesseean. At an early age he displayed a love for country life, and was specially fond of farming. When 10 years of age, he made a "cotton crop," swapping work with an old negro who plowed Harry's cotton and Harry paid him in "chopping and hoeing cotton in return. His father tried to discourage his farming tendencies by making him turn over to him one-half of all he made. He only tried to make his half as large as the whole of the preceeding year. At sixteen and a half years of age, he began to teach at Waverly, Tennessee, by taking place of a teacher who was ill one moring. The teacher, instead of being ill for one hour or two, was unable to return for one month. He retained a place in the school for fifteen months, and was afterward principal. He resigned December, 1882, to go to Gardner, Tennessee. He was there for two years as principal, resigning for principalship of Boarding School at Pinson, Tennessee, After having resigned at Gardner, and going to Pinson, the Trustees, seeing how youthful he was, tried to have him resign in favor of some older person, but the contract was made and he would not give way. For one week the opening was deferred, so that matters might be settled. He and his sister Elsie taught as associates for two years. She married and he remained one year longer, after which he was re-elected, receiving on first ballot over five competitors, fifteen votes, being the total cast at a meeting of Stockholders and Trustees of the school. He had made no application and when the position was tendered him for three years, he declined it and went west, remaining in Kansas City for about a half year. From there he went to Dallas, Texas, where, for one and a half years he was engaged in publishing the Texas Land and Immigrational Journal. This enterprise proved a great financial success for the whole of its existence, which was until the interests of different sections of the State began to show sectional prejudice. The Official Organ of the State Immigration Association, of Texas, fell with the Association, and Malone found himself deep in debt, about three thousand dollars, Shortly afterward he went to Old Mexico, and afterward returned to Texas; made a second visit to the City of Mexico, and in October, 1888, went to San Francisco, California, landing there October 17, on the Steamer Santa Rosa, with fifty-five cents. He, that day at 10 o'clock, began to solicit for book sellers as a "book agent." He continued for several months at this business. He then began work as Life insurance Solicitor, in which business he is still engaged. He now has at Martinez, an office which is a credit both to himself and the New York Life Insurance Company which he represents.
Will be married 12 October, 1892, this date being the 400th anniversary of the discovery of America by Columbus.

(160) ELIJAH CLARK.
(Residence, 2241 Central Avenue, Alameda, California).
Son of Elijah Clark (159) and Mary Hamilton. Born in Milton (now Orneville), Maine, 4 May, 1832.
When four years old he went to Maumee City, Ohio, with his parents, where he resided until about eighteen years of age, when he went to Paris, Kentucky, and entered the jewelry business. While here he met Ella Lou Stephens (41) and was married to her 30 January, 1854. They soon moved to Lexington Kentucky, where Mr. Clark at once became the most prominent jeweler of the city. In 1865, he sold out his profitable business and invested a portion of the proceeds, $20,000, in building a river steamboat, the "Thomas Powell." He then went to the South and had fair prospects of making considerable money, transporting cotton and other freight, on the lower Mississippi and tributaries when, owing to the scarcity of boats at the close of the late war, it was seized by the United States Government (Stephen Burbridge, commanding), and used to convey troops to various points. When the vessel was returned to Mr. Clark's hands it was so greatly damaged that it was sold for a trifle. He then went to Louisville, Kentucky, and started again in the jewelry business. In 1870, he invented an "Automatic Electrical Steam Gauge," which he patented and the Government ordered one on every steam vessel in the United States. A company was organized for their manufacture, and considerable money was made, but as usual in these cases, the company kept the money and the inventor got nothing. He shortly afterwards invented and patented an electrical clock (about 1872), and in 1885 (24 November), patented a "Micrometer Gauge." an instrument that can be found on every watchmaker's table. He is now located at 120 Sutter street, San Francisco, California, where he continues his business of watchmaker and jeweler.

(162) DR. EDWARD STEPHENS CLARK.
(Residence, 2018 Central Avenue, Alameda, California.)
Son of Elijah Clark (160) and Ella Lou Stephens (41). Born in Paris, Kentucky, 28 September, 1856.
His parents shortly afterwards moved to Lexington, Kentucky, and remained during the war.
They then went to Boston, Massachusetts, in 1865, leaving Edward (and his brother Carlton) with his grandfather, Joseph Stephens (29), in Paris, Kentucky, where he received a common school education. When only a boy he became interested in the natural sciences, especially chemistry, and devoted most of his spare time to the study of these. When seventeen years of age he began the study of medicine, and in 1874 attended his first course of lectures at the Hospital College of Medicine in Louisville, Kentucky. After the close of lectures, he became interested in the study of geology and palaeontology, and in the following six years, during his leisure hours, he collected throughout Indiana and Kentucky specimens numbering upwards of 10,000, which he has now deposited in the California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco.
In 1875 he taught a country school for one session, and after this he entered the drug business, in which he continued off and on until 1879, when he finished his medical education and graduated from the Hospital College of Medicine, 26 February, 1880. He practiced in Louisville for about a year, and then temporarily engaged in railroad surveying, accepting the position of Chief Engineer of the M. F. L. & D. Ry.; he surveyed and located this road, and assisted in the location of several other railroads in Indiana and Kentucky.
In April, 1884, he went to California on a visit, remaining for several months, visiting the gold mines, among other places of interest. He paid some attention to mining methods, and on his return home invented and applied for a patent on an improved amalgamator, which he tried in the Georgia mines and proving successful here, he made another trip to California the following year to place his machines there, having formed a company for their manufacture. He abandoned this business, however, not being able to agree with the company as to location of machines.
In 1886 he entered the laboratory of Redington & Co., as chemist. He followed this for about a year and then resumed practice of his profession. Is now located at 16 Geary street, San Francisco, California, as a specialist in the treatment of eye, ear, nose and throat diseases.
Dr. Clark is a member of the County and State Medical Societies, The San Francisco Microscopical Society, The San Francisco Bacteriological Society, The San Francisco Polyclinic, where he has entire charge of the Aural Clinic, The Astronomical Society of the Pacific, The California Academy of Sciences (in which he is curator of Geology and Palaeontology), and corresponding member of various other scientific societies in the
United States and Europe. He was the first to call attention to the fact of increase in temperature by breathing on fibrous material (Medical Herald, Louisville, Kentucky, April, 1880). He is also oculist and aurist to the Southern Pacific Company in San Francisco.
He married Anita H. Yates (170), 28 September, 1888.

(Residence, Woodland, California.)
Son of James M. Stephens (55) and Mary Ann Adams (56). Born in Bunceton, Cooper County, Missouri, 30 June, 1835.
At the age of seventeen, after a great deal of coaxing and persuading, his parents consented for him to go to California, which was considered almost out of the world. They thought complete education better than a rich miner, but finally yielded, and fitted out an ox team for the trip overland, and with three other young men, on April 11th, 1852, with bright hopes they started by land for California, and arrived in Yolo County about August 10th. Here he was employed by his uncle, John Adams, to work on a farm for twelve months. The next year he tried farming on his own account, and after that bought some cattle and sheep and tried stock raising with more or less success until 1865. Then tried mining one year near Grass Valley, but that not proving a success, returned to Yolo County and went into farming. In 1874, moved to Woodland and took charge of the Grangers' warehouse which was owned by a large number of farmers, and for two years managed the business. Was one of the subscribers to the capital stock of the Bank of Woodland when organized in 1869, and was elected a director
of the bank, which office he has held ever since. Was married to Miss Alice E. Hunt (253), of Woodland, 10 May, 1876, and they made a trip to the Eastern States, taking in the Centennial and
most of the large cities. After returning home he entered largely into buying wheat, in partnership with Mr. J. H. Harlan, and continued in that business until 1882, when he was prevailed upon to accept a position as a salaried officer in the Bank of Woodland. Is still interested in farming and stock raising with his brother, J. J., and J. H. Harlan, in Fresno County, and with his brother in Yolo County.

In November, 1849, he made a trip to Ruddell's Mills, Bourbon County, Kentucky, on business, expecting to return again to his school, but was taken sick with typhoid fever and in the following spring found himself a physical wreck and without means to pay his debts and return to his class.
He then obtained a teacher's certificate and soon secured a six months school, after the close of which attended Nourse's Academy in Millersburg, Kentucky, afterwards staying in Dr. W. P. Savage's drug store for a few months, where he began the study of medicine. He then taught school another six months, and afterwards attended Georgetown College, devoting his time principally to Latin and Greek. After this time continued to teach school and study medicine until October, 1854, when he went to Cleveland, Ohio, and matriculated at the Western Reserve Medical College. A few weeks afterwards there was a call made by Dr. Cleveland, the city physician, for an assistant physician and druggist to reside at the City Hospital. Young Stephens was the successful candidate, securing both positions with the privilege of attending a sufficient number of lectures to enable him to retain his standing in the class. Here he remained until the first of March, 1856, when the Medical Faculty conferred upon him the degree of Doctor of Medicine.
Resigning his position as assistant City physician and apothecary, he returned to Kentucky, spending most of his time at Frankfort and Ruddell's Mills. He married 28 August, 1856, Margaret Jane Thomas, of Bourbon County, Kentucky, and moved to Clay County, Missouri, in March, 1857, where he immediately entered into a lucrative practice, remaining until his business was seriously affected by the late rebellion, when he removed to his present home in Sidney, Iowa (13 August, 1864). He obtained at once a large practice, and the following year opened up a drug store which he conducted for fifteen years in conjunction with his practice.
Since he commenced the practice of medicine he has attended lectures at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York, the Bellevue Hospital Medical College, and received the ad eundem degree from the Medical Department of the Western Reserve University.
He has written a great deal on the subject of medicine and the collateral sciences, and is now a paid contributor to some of the leading medical journals.
Among the original articles written or reported by him, may be mentioned the following:--

Philadelphia, 1888.

Notwithstanding the doctor has always had a physical ailment, besides another added ten years ago, and his avocations being arduous, he is remarkably well preserved for one of his years. Is politically a Democrat of the temperance type, strongly favoring prohibition, religiously a Presbyterian, never played a game of cards, never danced a set, nor defiles himself with tobacco.
On 13 March, 1879, he was married to Mrs. Mary C. Copeland, of Fremont County, Iowa, who died 14 May following.
On 6 September, 1881, when on his way to visit some patients he collided with a cyclone, and was taken with buggy and team into the air, being dashed to the ground. He received severe injuries which kept him from work for several months.
Was married to Mrs. Elizabeth Nelson Moore, of Sidney, Iowa, 7 September, 1881, the day after the accident, thus fulfilling an engagement which was to have been consummated the following week.

(323) JOSEPH JOSIAH STEPHENS.
(Residence, Woodland, California.)
Son of James Madison Stephens (55) and Mary Ann Adams (56). Born in Bunceton, Missouri, 25 October, 1836. Was educated in the district schools of the place of his birth, living on the old homestead until eighteen years of age, when he left the home of his parents in 1854 to visit the land of gold. He came to California and engaged in the sheep business, remaining in the Sacramento Valley two years. He then returned to Missouri and on 21 January, 1857, was married to Elizabeth Davis (332), and with his young wife, then but eighteen years of age, they started on their weary wedding tour to California. In company with a number of others they brought a herd of cattle across the plains, landed safely in Yolo County in the fall of the same year, and ever since, this has been their home. About this time a joint partnership was formed with his brother, L. D. Stephens (252), which is still unbroken, and together they have accumulated quite a comfortable fortune, consisting mostly of land, having twenty-seven hundred acres, situated in Yolo and Fresno Counties. It is all under cultivation in a high degree and very valuable. They are also large owners in the Woodland Bank and other smaller properties. The subject of this sketch quit his active farm life about twelve years ago and assumed control of the Madison Warehouse Company, located at Madison and Esparto, in which he owns a large interest. He has raised a family of three sons and three daughters, all of whom are grown and married, except the two younger daughters, who are still at home. Mr. Stephens moved from his farm home to Woodland in the year 1890, where they still reside on Cross street. He is, at this writing, in perfect health, weighing two hundred and twenty pounds and apparently good for many more years' active life. He takes a great deal of interest in politics, but has never accepted any honors in that line, though they have been repeatedly offered him. He prefers freedom from political thraldom, and is looked upon as one of the solid men of Yolo County, an honor he has fairly won by his past life and successes.

The great boom in Fresno City had its attractions for thousands of people, and at this time he closed out his Modoc business and located in Fresno City. During the times of the boom he followed the lucrative business of a real estate dealer in a manner very much to his financial interest. Just at the close of the activity in real estate circles, he invested in a farm near Fresno City, which has been his home until recently, when he assumed the management of the Harlan & Stephens tract of land of little less than three thousand acres, also in Fresno County. At present, his home is on this place, though he still retains possession and control of his own place, which is but a few miles distant. He is a thorough business man; of small stature, brown hair, blue eyes and weighs about one hundred and forty pounds; belongs to the sanguine temperament, and bids fair to stand foremost among men.

(452) JOSEPH DANIEL STEPHENS.
(Residence, Fresno City, California.)
Son of Lewis Oliver Stephens (448) and Beltie Bean (451). Born in Woodland, California, 26 May, 1887. This bright little fellow, being the only grandson of two grandfathers, and both being desirous of honors, he was named for them both, "Joseph" "Daniel" Stephens. He is now four years old and wonderfully well developed for his age. He has a large fertile brain and his taste runs altogether to literary and mechanical lines, in both of which he takes deep interest and never tires having explained to him. Caution is well developed and he is seldom seen where there is the least danger to the physical man. Few things escape his observation and months after he can give a minute description of anything that he had seen in the past. He is very devoted to his parents and under no circumstances can any one make him say he loves one of them more than the other, even though he is punished by one of his parents, his answer is the same "I love mamma and papa." Not long since he was found on the street with a bundle of 'old" papers under his arm saying "evening papers, 5c a piece," so his papa sent him customers by furnishing several bystanders with nickels; he was very proud of his money-making and put it in his bank to go to school with as he says, "when I get big." If nothing happens to mar his prospects and all goes well, he will be among some of the foremost men of the future.

R. B. Butler was the oldest of ten children and at the age of sixteen, he entered the confederate cavalry, under the command of General Wheeler. He fought all through the war and carries some mementos of conflicts, in the form of wounds caused by the enemy's shot. After the war, young Butler remained at home for three years, after which time he went to Texas, bought a herd of cattle, and in company with H. B. Johnson, a present brother-in-law, drove them to California for sale. This was his first visit to the Pacific Coast. After a short tour of inspection, he returned to his old home in Alabama, and in the year 1871, moved to California, bringing with him the entire family. They settled in Yolo County, where Mr. Butler spent some time in the then lucrative business of farming. In 1875, he was employed as business manager for W. Levy, who conducted the largest general merchandise business in Yolo County. He was married in Yolo County, 18 November, 1879, to Mary Francis Stephens (390), and they immediately moved to Fresno County, where Mr. Butler had previously bought land and founded his home. Since that time he has been extensively engaged in stock raising and the raisin business. He has been connected with the irrigation system of Fresno County since its infancy, and has done much to further its development. He is President of the Fowler Switch Canal Company, which is the largest irrigation system in Fresno County. The people of Fresno County, complimented Mr. Butler by electing him to a seat on the County Board of Supervisors in 1890, which position he has filled with credit to himself and his constituents. In stature, Mr. Butler is of slender form, dark eyes and hair; weight about 150 pounds. He is in the prime of life; his health is good and promises to continue to a good old age, as did his father and grandfathers before him.
