1859-05-03: Survey of Divided Santa Ana and Quien Sabe Ranches approved

Tuesday, May 3, 1859 – Survey of the divided ranches for the United States excluded an equal amount of land from both Santa Ana and Quien Sabe ranches; the survey was finally approved by the Surveyor General and the lands embraced in the survey are the same as in the Patent.

Abstract v.2 p. 253

That the area of Rancho Santa Anita north of said division line is 31,000 Acres; that the area of Rancho Quien Sabe is 17822.60 Acres.

That Rancho Santa Ana contains more agricultural lands than Rancho Quien Sabe and is of more easy access. The pastoral lands are of equal value acre for acre, but from 1851 to 1865 Quien Sabe was the best cattle rancho because it was easier to keep cattle in it and they could range from the mountains which divides from Santa Ana as far as the San Joaquin River.
