Inscription.  Among the first settlers of El Monte, he decided to leave his farm in Iowa and came in search of gold. He made the journey by ox team via Salt Lake city. In 1850 he headed for the San Joaquin River to mine, but because of menacing Indians in the area, decided to return to El Monte. He procured 160 acres of government land and engaged in raising barley and general farming. In 1852 he married Almira Hale and they had six children. Almira was related to President Franklin Pierce, and family ties to President William Henry Harrison, and descended from Nathan Hale.
