Regarding Jacob Bergman. Jacob Bergman, a native of Germany, first saw what was later to be called Bergman Valley while in the U.S. Cavalry and was reported to have driven the first stage coach through the valley. In July 1870 Jacob Bergman had established Guahonga Post Office. This is approximately the site of the old Bergman Post Office established in 1894 serving the area pioneers. Later the post office name was changed to Aguanga. Bergman had at one time been a member of the Board of Supervisors of San Diego County.
